How safe is Cabo?

This will be our first time to Mexico and we are a bit worried about the safety of Los Cabos. My family and I are staying at the Terrasol Beach Resort.

Lucky you, staying at TerraSol! I agree-you can relax and enjoy Cabo! If you stay out super late partying, I'd probably cab home, but otherwise, just enjoy!

Why are you worried? There are no reports that I have ever seen that state that the Cabo area is not safe. I feel way more comfortable walking around at night there than in the cities close to me.

You the normal common sense that you would traveling anywhere and you will be fine.

Cabo is one of the safest places in Mexico and this is from a guy who follows the narcos in the news.The only danger is time share sharks and rare killer" clown"a joke for the Cabo regulars.That being said there is crime and if you are looking for trouble.It will find you and careless people will learn expensive lessons.On my virgin trip to Cabo,A couple left their laptop on the outdoor patio of Starbucks near the Puerto Paraiso Mall for a couple of minutes while They went to the restroom.When it was taken,they were complaining they do this in Calgary all the time.Cabo is safe but be alert.
