The Los Cabos Corridor (Corredor Turistico) is located in the Los Cabos Municipality of Baja California Sur, Mexico. The Corridor stretches for about 19 miles (30 kilometers) along the southern coast of the Baja California Peninsula, facing the Gulf of California on Highway 1 between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas.
Thanks to its abundance of beach resorts, golf courses, and water sports, the Corridor is very popular with tourists and expatriates. Add high-quality lifestyle and mild temperatures, and you can see why the Los Cabos Corridor is such a desirable place to purchase a home.
The Corridor has many luxury condos and custom-built homes in gated communities, and new construction is booming. For most American expatriates, it is much more affordable to live here than in the United
States. The Mexican housing market is healthy too. And house prices are expected to keep rising, proving resilient despite the pandemic.
According to the Los Cabos Real Estate Market 2020 Q4 Market Report, during 2019 the residential average and mean prices rose 13.6% and 1.6%, respectively.
Los Cabos became a popular destination in the 1950s because of its sport fishing, stunning beaches, and affordable cost of living. Until then, the region had been pretty remote and undeveloped; soon, though, thousands of tourists and expatriates were pouring in, and a robust development was underway that continues to this day. Hotels and resorts now pepper the oceanfront, excellent golf and dining destinations abound, and the Los Cabos International Airport near San José Del Cabo greets travelers from all over the world.
You can’t visit Los Cabos without visiting the famous stone arch at Land’s End in Cabo San Lucas. Nestled between the Sea of Cortés and the Pacific Ocean, the naturally formed El Arco is synonymous with Cabo San Lucas, and you’ll find it on many a postcard and other souvenir.
