Airport DetailsThe San Jose del Cabo International Airport (SJD) has recently enjoyed a number of upgrades and expansions that ensure travelers' added comfort and safety. It is located just 20 minutes north of San Jose and welcomes domestic, international and private or charter flights year-round. When traveling abroad, all passengers must pass through customs and immigration. You need a valid passport to be allowed in Mexico. Once you have passed through immigration, collect your luggage and proceed to customs. Here, passengers push a button on a traffic light of sorts; if the light turns red, your luggage has been chosen for inspection.
