Beach-filled escapes in Baja California Sur

Baja California Sur draws vacationers looking for a fun-filled beach escape full of water sports, family-friendly amusements and plenty of relaxing days on the sand. Many visitors head straight to the southern tip, where resort towns like Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo offer golf courses, shopping districts and tons of restaurants.

No matter which coast or which part of the Mexican state you choose, you'll find an attractive selection of Baja California Sur vacation rentals await.
