Baja on a Budget
Everything you need to know to save big on your Los Cabos vacation
By Beto Haro
Cabo has come a long way, baby. Once a sleepy fishing village, Cabo San Lucas—and the entire Los Cabos region—has become a world-class travel destination complete with high-end resorts, five-star restaurants, and extraordinary activities that range from sunset cruises to powered hang gliding and Flyboarding.
While there is a seemingly endless list of things to do while in Los Cabos, most of us have to be realistic about our budgets, right? Of course! But that doesn’t mean you need to start giving up on your vacation plans. Instead, it’s time to check out Los Cabos Magazine’s prepaid voucher program and to start making your dreams a reality.
Los Cabos Magazine’s signature discount program lets you save 35–70 percent on many of the region’s most famous restaurants and activities in Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo, and along the tourist corridor. The vouchers are easy to use and can be refunded within 120 days if unused.
Before we get into the details of how the program works, let’s talk about the places you can use vouchers. Participating activities companies include popular Los Cabos outfits like Cabo Expeditions, Cabo Flyboard, Buccaneer Queen, and Dolphin Discovery. Among the restaurants: Sunset Point, Pan di Bacco, Daikoku, Baja Lobster Co., and the new Light House bistro at Tesoro Los Cabos. You can swim with dolphins, sail the seas, and dine at restaurants that dazzle with their menus and their views.
The list of participating companies and availability changes frequently, so we encourage you to check often.
OK, so how does this all work?
First you visit the website listed above or call the Los Cabos Magazine office—(800) 481-3905 from the United States or (624) 143-1346 from México—to confirm the current inventory. Decide on the volume of vouchers you want for each business, then the discount will be applied. Say, for example, you want $500 worth of vouchers for restaurants that all fall under the 50 percent off category. All you pay is $250, and you have $500 in vouchers to apply at the respective restaurants. (Prepaid vouchers are available in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 U.S.)
You can pick vouchers out and purchase them right in the office, over the phone, or via the website. PayPal and credit card purchases are accepted on the website, and vouchers are then shipped to you. Our mail and shipping services provide mail delivery to and from our office in Los Cabos to locations in the United States.
There are a few rules when it comes to redeeming prepaid vouchers. All the details are available on the website, but it’s most important to remember to sign each voucher, use them at the restaurant marked at the front of the voucher, and present them before ordering. Restaurants do not provide change for vouchers, and they do not apply them to tips.
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time you turn those day dreams into vacation plans.
