LA to Cabo is a comfortable 2 day drive, with around 12 hour drives each day.
There are many military checkpoints along the way, and the drive is quite beautiful and easy down MX Highway 1.
I “ve done it MANY times, having lived in Baja Sur for years.
You “ll have plenty of time to do it and have time to enjoy Cabo as well.
And perhaps stop at my favorite rest stop along the way:
You “ll have to rent a car within Mexico in order to drop it off in Mexico though, so plan to get from LA to San Diego one way, take the trolley across the border, and then rent another car there.
