Review: VIP Lounge Los Cabos Terminal 2 (SJD)

After a great stay at The Westin Los Cabos, it was time for us to head home. Before our flight we had the chance to check out the VIP Lounge located inside Terminal 2 at Los Cabos International Airport.


After clearing security in Terminal 2 and navigating the duty free maze, turn left when you reach the main concourse. Halfway down, on the right, is the food court. The VIP Lounge is located on the far left side, next to Subway.

It is easy to spot thanks to the wood facade which stands out against the white used on the food stalls.

Entry Requirements

The easiest way to access the VIP Lounge Los Cabos is via Priority Pass. I have this through my American Express Platinum card and many other premium travel cards offer this perk. Day passes can be purchased for $800 MXN which is roughly $50 USD.

It’s worth noting that access to the lounge is currently capped at 3 hours per visit. This wasn’t mentioned when we checked in though our flight was scheduled to depart well within the window.

We were assisted quickly upon arrival as there were two clerks and no other passengers in line. We arrived roughly 25 minutes after opening and the whole lounge was relatively empty. It did fill up quickly after we arrived.

Upon entering the lounge you head down a hallway lined with some seating. The first seating area is visible at the end of the hall. Overall the lounge felt more like a swanky restaurant or club as it was dark and moody.

A center walkway separated the seating areas located on both sides of the lounge. The spaces were small enough to feel somewhat private, but not so small that they felt cramped.

In the center of the lounge is a large bar. This acted as the focal point for the lounge. A number of barstools surrounded the bar and there was a space for walk ups which is nice. Other lounges don’t do this so you have to lean over or squeeze between patrons when the bar is busy.

The lounge has a good mix of seating with high top tables that could be used as workstations, couches, and chairs.

The restrooms were located down hallway at the rear of the lounge. I found them to be clean and well maintained. I also appreciated the fact the stalls had full doors. Since Los Cabos doesn’t see any long-haul flights, there wasn’t a need for shower facilities here.

Food and Beverage

The lounge has a small buffet in the rear corner that featured light bites and snacks. Chips and salsas, guacamole, sliced fruit, soup, cereal, bread, and cookies were available.

While you could order drinks from the bar, and self serve coffee was available in the buffet area, we had an attendant that came around to take beverage orders. She would stop by periodically to see if we needed anything.

During our short visit I had a mimosa and black coffee while Mrs. ATX had a cappuccino.

As I mentioned above, we managed to find a calm area at the rear of the lounge. It was tucked away but still had good views out across the space.

Overall the lounge was quiet with some quiet music playing over the speakers. Somewhat surprisingly, that music was MTV’s Non-Stop 80’s Hits and every TV in the lounge was playing the corresponding music video. I thought this was more fun than annoying.

We only had 45 minutes in the lounge before it was time to head to our departure gate but the lounge filled up quickly between 9:30a-10:15a. Thankfully it stayed relaxing and was better than buying overpriced food in the busy terminal. It was worth accessing the lounge via Priority Pass but I wouldn’t spend $50 per person to enter unless I could maximize the full three hours due to the limited food options.


The VIP Lounge Los Cabos Terminal 2 is the only lounge in the very busy international terminal at the airport. The lounge itself was modern and quiet and we found the staff to be very attentive. While I wouldn’t pay for a guest pass, I’d recommend stopping in if you have access via Priority Pass.
