This winter, trade your usual seasonal uniform of layers and long-sleeves for your favorite beachwear and swimsuits, and come visit us in gorgeous Cabo San Lucas! Sitting at the southernmost tip of Baja California, Cabo San Lucas and our sister city, San José del Cabo, offer visitors sun-kissed beaches, ample recreation both on and off the water, as well as a vibrant local culture and culinary scene. With less than two months of rain on average annually, your winter vacation in Cabo is likely to include plenty of warmth, sunshine, and leisurely days spent on the shore and beachside cantinas. With so much to offer, it’s the perfect time of year to shake things up and take an unforgettable trip to Cabo—even if you’re not escaping the latest winter blizzard!
A Beachy Winter Wonderland
When you’re laying out on the golden sand of Playa El Médano or taking a sunrise kayaking trip around the famed and rugged Arch of Cabo, you’ll hardly believe it’s the winter months! Stepping into our seaside paradise is like stepping away from time itself, into a realm of endless summer. Beach enthusiasts will love the adventure out to Divorce Beach and Lover’s Beach, which are only accessible by water taxi and have names inspired by the waters they face—Lover’s Beach sits on the calm Sea of Cortez, and Divorce Beach the slightly rougher waves of the Pacific. To elevate the experience, book a glass bottom taxi with a local company or a private tour with Roger’s Glass Bottom Boat Tours.
Discover Authentic Local Restaurants and Cantinas
If you’d like to relax by the sea with a margarita in hand, you’ll find there’s a number of bars and restaurants where you can kick back and soak in the ocean views. Current favorites include The Office, where you can have a table right on the sand, and The Sand Bar, which offers beachside massages in addition to a restaurant! Fresh caught seafood is always in season, and you can spice up your winter with dishes like shrimp ceviche and fish tacos from the Sea of Cortez. For those searching for an upscale experience, try well-known eateries like Lorenzillo’s Live Lobster House in the marina, or Edith’s Restaurante, featuring gourmet Mexican dishes and an elegantly colorful ambiance. Winter visitors to Cabo will always have an excellent lineup of delicious restaurants to choose from!
Celebrate the Holidays in Beach City Style
Winter brings around times that many of us look forward to over the years, whether it’s the winter holidays, school breaks, or the ringing in of the new year. Visit for Christmas and spend the day whale watching after opening presents, and sip on seasonal spirits like the popular seasonal beer Noche Buena. New Year’s Eve in Cabo is always a roaring good time, with resorts hosting themed parties, nightclubs featuring well-known talent, and beachside bar countdowns. In the past, venues like OMNIA, Blue Marlin Ibiza, and Mango Deck have hosted New Year’s parties, while resorts like Grand Solmar and Breathless Resort have held extravagant bashes to celebrate the countdown.
Explore the Sea and Desert in Amazing Weather
It’s a terrific time of year to take advantage of the activities the ocean offers, whether it’s chartering a private deep-sea fishing charter or renting jet-skis to cruise the waves just offshore. Book a snorkeling tour, sea kayaking adventure, or even go parasailing! It’s also the ideal time for whale watching season, which runs from mid-December to April, but peaks in the apex of winter. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can learn to scuba during your winter vacation in Cabo, or take it easy and snorkel the sea coves. For those looking for dinner with a view, you can always book a sunset dinner cruise that will take you to several local sightseeing points. ATV tours offer a chance to explore our saguaro studded desert region in a spectacular off-road ride, while horseback riding can offer diverse desert trails as well as oceanside views. Forget lugging skis and snowshoes around—these are the winter pastimes of Cabo San Lucas! If you’re looking for our La Paz villas during your winter stay, click here!
