Staying Safe On Cabo's Mean Streets

Cabo street scene

Ok...so that is a bit of an exaggeration! The idea that Cabo's streets are in any way 'mean' is ludicrous. But as the photo proves, you never know quite what you will run into! Here are some street-smart guidelines that you should follow.

On the streets

Cabo’s streets are lively, and busy. And although they are not packed – there is some sort of street life almost 24/7. As you head back from a nightclub, you may well see early morning runners hit the streets.  

Luckily street crime is very rare. Use common sense. And you will be fine. Avoid walking in dark streets, take just enough cash for your night out, and leave credit cards in your hotel. Pretty much what you would do in almost every North American city. 

Traffic

Mexicans have a reputation of being aggressive drivers. However, in Cabo at least, you will find most are extremely courteous, and will happily wave you on at junctions. 

Best to avoid driving at night outside the city. Accidents are not unusual. And drinking and driving is common.  Although, recently there has been a crackdown on drunk driving. So be warned.

Sidewalks

You will find them at all heights and widths. And in all states of repair. But in Mexico, a person is liable for their own mistakes. So you can forget about suing for falling, or breaking an ankle. No one will take your case. Just watch your step.

Remember that pedestrians do not have the right-of-way. Wait for breaks in the traffic before crossing a street. Normally most Mexican drivers will politely stop, and wave you across. Much easier and much safer. 

Water

Tap water in Cabo is fine, and meets regular standards for purity and cleanliness. But pipes may be old. So everyone tends to drink bottled water – which you can buy everywhere. And don’t worry about ice in your drinks. Bars and restaurants get water and ice from companies that use purified water.

Food

Eating out in Cabo is a fabulous experience. However, people can and do get sick. It’s hot – and hygiene is always more of a challenge in the heat.

Street food in Cabo is delicious– from tacos stands to juice carts. Definitely worth trying. Take comfort from the fact that they are all inspected regularly. And head for the ones that are busy with locals. Bound to be the best. 

If you do get sick, best advice is to eat nothing for a day, drink lots of water (with electrolytes) and take Imodium. Chances are you will be fine after 24 hours. If not, then best check with a doctor, just in case.

Alcohol

You’re on holiday and Cabo is a party-town - of course you’re gonna have a drink. Just don’t drink so much that you don’t know what you are doing. Or where you are going. 

If you do hit the tequila a little too hard, water and a day off the booze is the sensible way back to sanity…
