September 26, 2023 | By: Danielle Briones

There are hundreds of developments in Cabo San Lucas. While the diverse range of options means there are real estate options that meet various needs, it can be difficult for investors to know which communities or areas have the potential to produce the highest ROI for vacation rentals. In this blog post, real estate agent Jeff Schmidt discusses the best vacation rental communities in Cabo San Lucas.


Pedregal has historically been known as one of the most desired area in Cabo. It is in close proximity to downtown, offers great views, and there are a number of homes and condos that are ideal for vacationers. Check out these real estate options in Pedregal.

Hacienda Phase 1 (not to be confused with Phase 2’s 1Homes development) offers great vacation rental potential, but it is difficult to purchase units in this development due to high demand. Jeff has had access to off-market listings, so don’t hesitate to reach out to him if you are interested in purchasing property in Hacienda. If available, Hacienda Phase 1 and Phase 2’s 1Homes development listings will appear here.

Villa La Estancia

Villa La Estancia offers resort-like living and is located right on Medano Beach, which makes to very attractive to vacationers. Here are the current condos for sale in Villa La Estancia.

Downtown Cabo

Downtown Cabo is highly desirable to tourists because of it’s close proximity to Medano Beach, the marina, and downtown. Because there are so many bars, restaurants, water sports, and other activities within walking distance, many vacationers prefer to stay in this area.


The Misiones development is a good option for investors looking for vacation rental condos in Cabo San Lucas because the development is located on the coast, between two great beaches. In addition, it is within walking distance to the restaurants at The Cape hotel and the Sunset Mona Lisa trio of restaurants.


The Copala development is located on the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas, and it is part of the high quality Quivira group of real estate products. With condos, homes, multiple swimming pools, and more, Copala is a great option for investors looking for properties with vacation rental potential.

Vista Vela

Vista Vela is located in the El Tezal area of Cabo San Lucas. Although these condos are about a 10-minute drive to downtown Cabo, it is easy to get an Uber for trips downtown. Vista Vela is located behind Costco, and within walking distance to the restaurants in Plaza Nova, making it an ideal location for many vacationers and investors.
