Sometimes called St. Luke Cape or simply Cabo, Cabo San Lucas sits on the southernmost tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula. As one of the country’s top five tourist destinations, it’s also become a spot for remote workers seeking out coliving spaces.
El Arco is a famous rock formation just off the coast of the town. This beautiful arch is nice to look at from afar but every couple of years the tide goes low enough for those in town to walk under it. This special occurrence also reveals many beaches hidden under the sea. In a paradise like this, all watersports are great options. If you’re into fishing, Cabo boasts incredible marlin fishing - they even have an annual competition with the best catch winning $3 million.
Cabo offers an ideal tropical climate - Hot days and cool nights. Daytime highs are usually in the high 70s (winter) to mid-90s (summer), while nights range from the mid-50s to mid-70s.
The cost of living is very reasonable compared to living in the US. With 70% of the population comprised of American expats, it’s no surprise that many others want to include Cabo San Lucas in their coliving adventure
The food here is amazing. Seafood lovers are especially in for a treat. Cabo’s specialties include smoked marlin, chocolate clams and fish tacos. With such a large expat community you’ll have no trouble finding most of your comfort foods.
It’s quite easy and affordable to rent a car or hop in a taxi. Scooters are available for rent but it’s important to exercise caution.
