Headed to Los Cabos? Pack Everything You Need with This Checklist

Fed up with cold, dreary weather? Beat the winter blues and jet off on an elegant escape to the jewel of the East Cape. A Los Cabos luxury resort that offers unparalleled experiences.

If you’re looking for an opulent getaway filled with fun in the sun, few destinations can compare to Los Cabos. Set against the sparkling waters of the Sea of Cortez, the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos is nestled along two miles of pristine, sun-drenched swimmable beach.

A delight to the senses and a replenishing retreat for the soul, this Los Cabos luxury resort has everything you need to relax in style.

Before you go, make sure you’re properly prepared with all the must-have essentials for an unforgettable adventure.

  • Comfortable, casual clothes

    Los Cabos is notorious for pleasant weather, but you’ll want to have options. Bring casually chic, lightweight layering pieces to accommodate the weather and transitions between different activities.

    Soft, comfy fabrics will keep you comfortable from plane or boat to check-in and beyond.

    Lighter colors and breathable fabrics keep you cool, calm, and collected. Giving you more time to explore all that your Los Cabos luxury resort has to offer. Like Recharging your mind, body, and spirit in one of 10 treatment rooms at the Oasis Spa.

    You’ll undoubtedly add to your wardrobe before you depart, so leave a little extra room for all the goodies you’ll get. Boutiques and shops dot Marina Village; the resort’s premier port-of-call.

    A lightweight jacket or rain jacket can keep you warm on cooler nights. You’ll be comfortable grabbing a cocktail from one of the outdoor bars, dining al fresco beneath a starry night sky, or listening to live music at the resort’s vibrant nightclub.

  • Sun protection gear

    Even if you’re fairly used to sunny skies, play it safe with plenty of options for keeping your skin safe under the Los Cabo sun.

    • Hats

      For headwear, a pro tip is to pack one hat for beach and water-related activities, and another for your exploits on dry land.

      Planning on taking a day trip to explore one of the many nearby beach towns? A visor, wide-brimmed hat, or baseball-style cap will shield you from strong UV rays.

      Stroll along the art gallery-lined streets of Todos Santos, then pop into one of the museums in Miraflores. Or deep-dive into the area’s rich history at El Triunfo. This was once the site of sought-after silver and gold mines.


      Swimwear with built-in SPF, like a rash guard, are key for lounging next to one of the resort’s six swimming pools or going out on a fishing expedition to make a fresh catch in the rich waters of the Sea of Cortez.

      Along with swimwear pieces that pack added protection with SPF, bring a swim shirt or cover-up that can easily transition from water to brunch or lunch–with five options for casual and fine drinks and dining, you’re bound to be hopping all over the place.

    • Sunglasses

      You won’t want to miss any of the gorgeous scenery of the East Cape on your one-of-a-kind, luxurious getaway.

      Keep your vision in tip-top shape and prevent eye strain with at least two pairs of sunglasses–it’s always good to have a pair to spare.

      Polarized eyewear is best when hitting the beach or engaging in any water sports because they protect against a harsh water glare.

      This area is known for aquatic activities like kitesurfing, windsurfing, jet skiing, scuba diving, and snorkeling. Experience each memorable moment to the fullest.

    • Sunscreen

      Choose an SPF level that’s strong enough to protect your individual skin type, and don’t forget to pack enough for the duration of your holiday. This includes sunscreen for the face, body, scalp, and even protective lip balm.

      Basically you should choose a product that’s waterproof, sweat-proof, and reef-safe. Effective sun protection protects your skin and won’t harm the sapphire waters or its exotic creatures.

      Bringing children on the trip? Hanging out at the teen center or participating in any of the treasure-trove of activities available means lots of sun! Staying on top of their sunscreen routine will protect their skin.

      Aloe vera or other after-sun relief products are also important to have on hand in the event of a sunburn.

  • Activewear

    Whether you plan on hitting the tennis courts, swimming laps in the pool or ocean, or going on an off-roading ATV adventure, you’ll need to dress the part.

    Pack versatile options that work well for a variety of excursions. Choices include working out in a state-of-the-art fitness facility, zooming through the lush landscape on a zip-lining adventure, or hitting a world-class golf course.

    This Los Cabos luxury resort is a one-of-a-kind, tropical hideaway. You want to be ready for it all with comfortable, durable clothes that are up for anything during your stay

  • Dress it up for dinner

    Your time may be as casual or formal as you desire. But your best bet is to include a few pieces that can be easily dressed up as needed.

    Have reservations at one of the world-class fine dining options, or plan on dining out onboard a yacht? A couple of basics can instantly take your look from day to night.

    You can never go wrong with a longer sundress or little black dress for women. For a masculine look pack slacks and a collared shirt to look polished with minimal effort.

  • Suitable shoes for any occasion

    When it comes to packing shoes for your Los Cabos getaway it’s important to include footwear that’s perfect for every situation.

    Bring a pair of sandals for beachside or poolside. But also a pair of comfortable athletic shoes, for any high-octane activities.

    For more formal affairs, include at least one pair of dressier shoes in your suitcase. And keep a casual pair that will seamlessly flow from the airport to a day on the town.

  • Waterproof accessories

    If your version of downtime includes a digital device, like your cellphone, laptop, or e-reader, make sure they’re equipped with waterproof cases or covers.

    Scroll through social media, share photos of your trip with friends and family, or catch up on your latest beach read without worrying about an unfortunate water-related incident.
