Customs in Cabo San Lucas

Upon entering the city, you will have to fill out a customs form. Then, you will only have to go through immigration to pick up your belongings. After that, you will have to give the form to the responsible customs agent, and you will have to go through a very brief inspection. If the light turns green, it means that you will be able to pass a quick inspection without any problem. But, if it turns red, it means that you will probably require a more extensive check.
