Phone dialing 101. Land Lines
Cell are different and will be explained a little later.
The area code for Los Cabos is 624. It includes Cabo San Lucas, San Jose and Los Barriles.
To dial land-to-land phones within the Los Cabos area, just dial the seven digit number i.e.: RE/MAX Real Estate Service would be 144-4169
Long distance dialing: From another city to RE/MAX in Los Cabos dial 01 (624)+ 144-4169. Dialing long distance is just like dialing long distance in the States and Canada except you are dialing 01 instead of 1 before an area code.
Todos Santos and La Paz are in the 612 area code.
To dial within the La Paz area from the La Paz area just dial the seven digit number. For example the restaurant La Paz Lapa would be: 1234757 if you are calling from La Paz. If you are calling the restaurant from with in the Los Cabos area code you must dial long distance: 01 (612) 1234757.
Calling from out side the country to Los Cabos: 01152 (624) + phone number. The 011 tells the phone company you want an over seas connection, 52 is the country code for Mexico and gets you into this country and the rest is just the area code and phone number. That's if you are calling a land line. If you are calling a cell phone in Los Cabos, you now have to throw in an additional "1" before the area code. As in 011-52 + 1 (624) + phone number.
From out of the country to La Paz: 011 52 (612) 123 4757. (The long distance operator, Mexico's country code, La Paz's area code, the restaurant's seven digit phone number.) Remember, if you are calling a cell phone in La Paz from outside the country, you now have to throw in an additional "1" before the area code.
To call a cell phone which is outside your own area code, it's a whole new ballgame. Example: to call a cell phone in La Paz from a land line in Los Cabos, dial 045 (612) + the seven digit phone number. The 045 tells the phone company that the caller pays for the call.
Phone dialing 102. Cell phones.
To call a cell number that is either in the same or a different area code but still within Mexico, just dial the seven digit number starting with the area code even though you are in the same area code: Example: You are in the Los Cabos area and you want to call a La Paz cell number: dial (612) + phone number. If you are in La Paz and want to call a La Paz cell, you must dial (612) + phone number.
From out of the country to a Los Cabos or La Paz cell number you now have to throw in an additional "1" before the area code. As in 011-52 + 1 (624) + phone number. Remember that?
Cell phones are getting trickier so you gotta get it in your head that the only time you treat them any different is when you are in the same area code. The 044 is currently only used when dialing from a land line to a cell number in your same area code. The 045 is used when calling from a land line to a cell phone outside your area. To call from cell to cell within Mexico just dial the area code + the seven digit number.
