The Baja Peninsula consists of 2 states.  Baja Norte and Baja Sur.

Cabo is located in Baja Sur and the state capital is La Paz, located about 1 1/2 hours north of Cabo.

Recently I came across some interesting facts about Cabo and Southern Baja.  

Almost 40% of the Southern Baja residents were born in another part of Mexico.  (I always enjoy locating a Cabo native and learning from them about Cabo in the early years)
