If you’re looking for a break that includes sun, sand, water, and warmth, no matter what time of year, you’ll want to make sure you consider a place with all of that, plus some Mexican and American flair mixed together for a truly unique experience. Planning the ultimate vacation not only includes where you’ll go, what you’ll do, or where you plan to stay, but also the time of year to do it all. Every popular vacation destination has its best times to visit, including Cabo: read on to learn about the best times to visit Cabo San Lucas.
Vacationing during the cooler months – by Cabo standards, around in the mid-70s to mid-80s – means higher prices and bigger crowds. Cabo has become a Spring Break mecca in recent years, so you may want to avoid the area if you’re looking for a little peace and quiet during your trip. Instead, plan your trip around events like the Todos Santos Art Festival in February, or the Festival of San Jose in March.
Highlighted by many travel websites as the best time to visit Cabo, if you book early, you’ll be in for some treats. The “shoulder season” is a time of recovery from the crowds of winter and things like airfare, rental cars, and even accommodations may come with a lower rate. You’ll also avoid the busier season. Of course, there will be plenty of celebrations for Cinco de Mayo!
While you’d think a beach town would be all about summer, there’s a slight chance of hurricanes, and a near guarantee for rain in September. The summer heat may be your reason to spend time in the waters of the Pacific Ocean and Gulf of California – highs can get into the 90s. If you’re here in September, celebrate Mexican Independence Day with the locals.
The area is getting ready for its busy season. Airfare, rentals, and more start to become pricier in anticipation of peak season. If you plan to come now, make plans well in advance to get the best deals. Anglers will want to aim for October or November, which bring annual fishing tournaments, while music lovers will want to pack their bags for the Los Cabos Jazz Experience in November.
