San José del Cabo
San Jose del Cabo is a city in Los Cabos.
The Los Cabos airport is located in San Jose del Cabo. When you get out of the terminal, you first reach customs. Here you need to have your disembark/embark card filled out, but you do not give them your declaration card here. After you clear customs, you cross through baggage claim. At the end of baggage claim there are several rental car companies. If you made a rental, stop by and tell them you are there so they can call a shuttle driver to pick you up.
You then go through declarations. This is the point where they may pull you over for secondary agriculture inspection if applicable. When you walk out of custom declarations, you are in this room full of people. This room actually is just people who are trying to sell you time shares and tours. Just walk straight out and you will be near the terminal exit.
If you have rented a car, the people in the room after customs declarations may lie to you to keep you in the room. In reality, your shuttle driver is already waiting outside if you talked to them before so just walk out. The rental car shuttle will take you to a brief couple minute drive to your rental car company.
When in the arrivals terminal at the airport, there is a wifi password posted on the corner of the Starbucks in Terminal 2.
