The history of Los Cabos is as rich as the landscape that defines the region. One of the oldest parts of the southern Baja Peninsula, Los Cabos translates into "The Capes," and brings a lasting history to this unequaled corner of the world.
With nearly 360 days of sunshine each year and countless activities from which to choose, Los Cabos will captivate you with its unsurpassed natural beauty. Whether you prefer to tee off at a world-class golf course or head out at sunrise hoping to catch a prized marlin, Los Cabos has it all. Every day is the start of a new adventure. You can indulge with a day at the spa and request a pampering treatment that uses a blend of local Baja plants.
Or you can go surfing, kayaking, snorkeling or diving at one of the many tempting locations you'll find throughout this fun-in-the-sun paradise. Get closer to nature, on an ATV ride through the mountainous terrain while learning about the flora and fauna that abounds, hop into a Hummer H2 for an amazing ride, or zoom along in a Chenowith racer for a unique adventure. No matter which activity you decide to embark on, you're sure to enjoy your stay — and you'll want to come back again and again for more.

Resort Check-in Information
Please have your Sunwing hotel voucher ready for check-in at the hotel's reception. Based upon your arrival and check-in time, it is possible that your room may not be ready. Pack your bathing suit, shorts and sunscreen in your carry-on so that you can enjoy the facilities until your room is available.

Your friendly Sunwing destination representative is available in Los Cabos should you require assistance. Please check the Sunwing Vacations information boards or binders located in your hotel for a schedule of when your Sunwing destination representative is available.
It is recommended that you drink bottled water while in Los Cabos. Most hotels offer bottled water in your hotel room and can also be purchased in the hotel's shop and in grocery stores. The ice and drinking water served in the hotels are generally made from purified water.
Long Distance Calls
Long distance telephone charges in Los Cabos can be quite expensive. It is recommended to make a collect call or use your calling card. Service charges may apply when calling from your hotel room.
Safety Deposit Boxes
Please use your safety deposit box for all your valuables, cash and travel documents. Some hotels in Los Cabos provide safety deposit boxes free of charge while others may require a nominal fee. You will be required to pay a penalty fee if you lose the key.
Traveling to foreign destinations can be very exhilarating. Tourists must be aware that potential problems and risks to your personal safety could exist anywhere. Please use the same personal safety precautions and common sense on your vacation that you would at home e.g. apply sunscreen frequently, do not swim alone and do not display cash. Avoid venturing out alone and beware of dark or isolated areas.
Taxes and Tipping
Generally, taxes are automatically added to purchases. The tipping percentage is similar to that at home. If you receive good service, please express your gratitude and offer a tip.
Your Flight Home
Please check the Sunwing Vacations information boards or binders located in your hotel to reconfirm your flight from Los Cabos and its departure time. As a friendly reminder, make sure that you have packed your flight documents, medication, or any articles that you must have with you at all times in your carry-on luggage.
