The other airport, Cabo San Lucas (CSL), is a private airport.

What to Expect When Landing in SJD

If you're flying from the United States (or Internationally), once you land at SJD and disembark the plane, you'll immediately have to go through the first part of customs.

You'll want to have your passport and arrival form that you were handed in the plane, in hand.

You'll stand in line, until you make your way to the front of the line.

When it's your turn, you'll then be called up by the customs officer, and they'll exam your passport and arrival form, and clear you through.

After this, you'll head through the doors, pick up your checked bag, and head through the second part of customs.

Exiting the Airport

Once you clear through customs, you'll pass sliding doors in a room, before actually exiting the airport.

In this small room, there are a dozen Timeshare salesmen that will immediately come up to you to get your attention.

If you are interested in Timeshare, this is a great opportunity for you.

However, if you're not, you'll want to politely say 'no thank you' and make your way out of the airport through the second set of sliding doors.

As soon as you exit the airport, you'll immediately notice that there are two bars that offer food and drinks.

If you're waiting for the rest of your party to arrive, this is an ideal place to wait, as after landing, there's nothing on that side of the airport besides customs and currency exchange.

Flying Back Home Through SJD

After you are dropped off back at Los Cabos International Airport, you'll need to find your airline, check in to your flight, and check in your bags (if you have any).

From there, you'll head upstairs and go through security.

Once you clear security, you can head directly to your gate and wait for your flight.

If you have a Priority Pass, you'll have access to the VIP Lounge located on the left side of the food court.
