5 Spacious, Private & Luxurious Villas to Rent for Your Cabo Family Getaway

In the '80s Cabo San Lucas became known for being a popular party spot among Spring Breakers. But since then, the Mexican city has established itself as a hot spot for luxury travelers. The area is dotted with four- and five-star hotels gaining accolades each year for being some of the best in the world. As its hotels and businesses have finally picked up their pieces following Hurricane Odile, travelers are now flocking back to the picturesque destination.

And, with the holiday season upon us (just two months away!), it’s time to start considering where to go on your family vacation. If colorful sunsets, diving excursions and poolside cocktails sounds like your kind of getaway, here are five spacious and über-luxurious villas to book:

Visitors also have access to the beach amenities at Club 96 and sports courts at Club Espiritu. As the nearby San Jose del Cabo offers some of the area’s best surfing beaches, be sure to bring your boards!
