In Sinaloa hoy took on the task of comparing both tourist destinations. Before you kind reader judge the objectivity of our note, allow us to show you the perspective of both destinations as local tourists, this although it is important for the Local (Mexicans) will also be very useful for foreigners.
Mazatlan has 1 airport located south of the city, access to it can be done by highway or free road (Shortest 25-30 min), is comfortable and can easily reach your destination.
Los Cabos Airport (s)
The capes have two airports, one in San Jose del Cabo (International) and another in Cabos San Lucas (which also said it was International), the distribution of roads is somewhat confusing and access to San Jose del Cabo Airport can also be done through the highway that if you travel from Cabo San Lucas you will have to pay a fee of $ 180.00 including round trip.
Which airport and services are better?
As a point of reference we have the UBER app, we consulted within the city of Cabo San Lucas the cost to the San Jose del Cabo International Airport (where most airlines arrive) and the cost was nothing more and nothing less than $ 890.00 pesos. On the other hand from Mazatlan to Rafael Buelna International Airport the cost is around $ 200.00 pesos.
|COST OF TRANSFER||BEST||BAD|
Urban and Road Organization
While we made a tour in the first square of the city of Cabos San Lucas, it was easy to realize that the road distribution was a total CHAOS, because you had to make long routes to take returns, as well as sudden changes of direction with low signage, certainly for a car rental tourist, this represents a problem.
We observed that Cabos San Lucas is very small for a tourist in vehicle, only a few blocks to appreciate the tourist area.
High parking costs, which was a very remarkable factor. In a central area of tourism, next to some tacos found in both Mazatlan and Los Cabos called “El Paisa”, we accessed the parking lot at the time of entering we were warned that the cost of parking was $ 72.00 X hour. Which is excessively expensive.
In Mazatlan, although they cut the possibility of parking on the boardwalk, you can do it without problems in the streets parallel to the boardwalk or in the Central Park FREE, and most of the ANTROS “clubs, bars, discos” of the city or places to visit have their own parking lots.
COSTS OF SERVICES AND FOOD
Los Cabos, took the prize to the excessively expensive prices, we reviewed the menu of several restaurants, and the cost compared with those of Mazatlan were exceeded up to 4 times the cost and with the inferior quality (We tested a ceviche of $ 380.00.)
In the antros (Discos) we took note of the costs, and guess, they were 3 times more expensive than in Mazatlan.
ATTENTION TO TOURISM
In Mazatlan, although there are many people from outside doing trade with tourism, there are more local people attending in good faith and with a good shape to tourists, we do not doubt that there are exceptions, but in Los Cabos, it was too obvious, almost everyone is looking for take away your money, and I talk about that in each place they look for how to get your attention with “Letras chiquitas” or added or hidden expenses. We noticed that there were many people from outside trying to sell you things, or in a certain way waiting for an opportunity to sell you as expensive as they could.
In this area both Los Cabos and Mazatlan have something very remarkable, beautiful beaches and the possibility of taking some tours that can take you to the famous Arch in Los Cabos as well as the Islands in Mazatlan, both are worth it.
In summary, if you are a tourist who wants to know both places, we can tell you that if your budget is low, or you want to give more, definitely visit Mazatlan, you have better access, better food, better prices and better treatment for tourists. of the locals.
