Where Do Celebrities Stay in Cabo?

Similar to Palm Springs, Cabo San Lucas has long been a prized celebrity getaway.  Part of its popularity is due to the fact that it’s just a two-hour flight from L.A., making it ideal for a few days of fun & sun.  Whether it’s George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow on her honeymoon, or the unofficial “Queen of Cabo” herself, Jennifer Aniston: the question we’ll do our best to answer here is, “Where Do Celebrities Stay in Cabo?”  I’ll give you the top seven resorts where you’re most likely to run into a celebrity or two, & yes, some of them are even (somewhat) affordable!
