Land's End and the Arch

When calling Mexico, the country code is 52, the area code for Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo is 624. If you find a public phone on the street which says Telmex, they work with prepaid chip cards (Ladatel) that you can purchase at drugstores, supermarkets, and convenience stores.

You should check with your local cellphone provider before traveling to Mexico and see if they have a convenient roaming service for Cabo. Other options include Skype when you are connected at a WI-FI location, either your hotel, a Starbucks or equivalent (use our list of public Wi-Fi locations to find one). You can find a cybercafe in CSL by the Pemex gas station that offers cheap internet access (around 5 dollars the hour).
