Cabo San Lucas

The Los Cabos Corridor (Spanish: Corredor Turistico, lit.'Tourist Corridor') is a tourist area located in the Los Cabos Municipality, Baja California Sur, Mexico. It sits on the southern coast of the Baja California Peninsula, facing the Gulf of California on the Transpeninsular Highway between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. It stretches about 30 km (19 mi) along the highway and addresses within this area are usually specified in terms of distances from the start of Highway 1. The corridor is considered a popular tourist destination as it has many beach resorts, golf courses, and sport fishing.[1]
