Sep 18, 2017


Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

An expat in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico offers an in-depth view of living in Cabo. Topics covered include clubs and volunteer organizations for expats in Cabo San Lucas, facebook groups, different types of visas and much more.

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Cabo San Lucas

How long have you lived there?

5 years

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

Facebook Groups such as: Cabo Expats, Caboholics, Cabo ConnectionsCabo English Church. There are lots of volunteer groups; Liga MAC, Cabo Critters, Los Cabo Humane Society, Los Cabos Children's Foundation, Movie Nights at different locations; Pueblo Bonito Sunset and Flora Farms, Take Spanish lessons; Book reading clubs; Amella Wilkes Plaza, The Bookworm Los Cabos, Pl,aza Cota, Hollydance Cafe and Kinesis Gym.

William Russell's private medical insurance will cover you and your family wherever you may be. Whether you need primary care or complex surgery, you'll have access to the best hospitals & doctors available. Unlike some insurers, we also include medical evacuation and mental health cover in our plans (except SilverLite). Get a quote from our partner, William Russell.

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Yes, this area Los Cabos has a strong English influence and has had for over 30 years. Mainly American and Canada, however over the lat couple of years we have seen a European influx. The local Mexican population embraces the growth knowing it strengthen their economic future. Over the past 5 years I have noticed the Mexican youth, 25-35 are showing up at the more expensive places to hang out. This tells me there is a growth in the middle class sector of their population, which is great!

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Mostly sales positions that bring in or have brought in foreign buyers. Examples are real estate and timeshare (vacation ownership) and businesses that support expats. So I have seen more foreigner start up business over the last couple of years because the government has made it easier for foreigners to do start ups. Prior to this you had to have a Mexican partner to start a business this is no longer the case, You can also now have your family work for you at your business, so the laws of who can work for you has changed too.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

People who work together seem to stick together, we are a timeshare tourist hoob. So socializing is big here, lots of night club, great restaurants, and activities. Sports bars everywhere how ever the only real sport here is soccer/football.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Be clear on what your intention is for moving to Mexico. To get a retirement visa is very different then getting a work visa. If you are coming to work be sure you have enough money to live for at least 6 months. Find your tribe, there is a wide range of people here, know who you are and who you want to hang with. Do your homework read through the Mexico government sites, there is a lot of information there....however know that things can change in a heart beat, So make sure your information is current when you decide to move. Get on the Facebook groups, ask questions, we stick together here, we help each other out.
