Though the weather is close to perfect year-round in Los Cabos, there are better times in the year to visit than others. We'll go through the whole year, what to expect each season, and you decide when it's best for you to take a trip to Cabo.



July.

You might not think it, but summer is the low tourist season. Being a desert, we have a dry heat that might be a bit much for those that are not used to it. This also makes it the most economical time to visit. From flights to hotels, you'll find deals during this period.


August - September.

Though it barely rains here, we do have a "hurricane season" that might bring a tropical storm or some light showers. We start to get some rainfall in the fall.


October - November.

It's the start of the excellent travel season. With holidays right around the corner, so many parties and celebrations are waiting for you. November is when you can start to see the whale migration through the Sea of Cortez. An amazing experience!


December - February.

Most people travel to Los Cabos during this period to escape the cold in their hometowns. Christmastime is part of our busy season; come deck the halls with some sand between your toes! Since it is a little cooler than the rest of the year, this is prime time to do some outdoor activities like riding ATVs or going to the zip lines. New Year's is a massive party in Los Cabos; you can't miss it!



March - April.

Different schools have different Spring Breaks, but you will definitely find loads of tourists and parties during this time. There is no Spring Break like a Cabo Spring Break!



May - June.

If you want to skip the crowds, this is the time to go. There is a two-month window between the holiday crowds and the rainy season; take advantage of it while you can!


Keep in mind, that it's always best to book your flights and where you will be staying some time in advance.



Every August 16, we celebrate the classic Caribbean alcoholic beverage distilled from sugar cane by-products, well-loved by pirates, and many more.


Let me tell you a bit more about Rum.


It all started when the Spanish arrived in America in the 16th century. They arrived in the Dominican Republic and Haiti with plans to grow cane on these lands. Over time, the cane was also used to create alcoholic beverages, mainly in Barbados, the oldest rum distillery, established in 1703.


Rum arrived in North America around 1760, but the English imposed taxes on cane and its by-products, affecting rum production.


The Prohibition Law in the US increased rum consumption, even though it is illegal, since they directly smuggled it into the Caribbean.


Even through all these hard times, Rum is one of the most consumed alcoholic drinks. The United States was the first to celebrate rum on August 16, and from there, the whole world joined the party.


Types of Rum

White Rum

This rum is not aged; it has a slightly drier taste than the others. This is the rum used in mojitos.

Golden Rum

This rum is aged in barrels that give it its yellow color and a particular flavor of wood, apple, and spices such as cinnamon.


Dark Rum

It is aged in the same way as the Dorado, but for a longer time. This gives it a more intense flavor of nuts, oak, and even caramel.

Cabo San Lucas is famous for its party, but there are so many activities you can do with your family, including the little ones!


Sunset Catamaran

The sunsets are always magical in Cabo, but seeing them from the ocean hits different. Take a ride around the water and even check out the Arch!


Flyboard

Fun for most ages! Experience the thrill of Flyboarding with a private lesson at Medano Beach. Your instructor covers all the basics of this exhilarating water sport.




ATVs

Some kids may be too young to drive, but two can ride on most ATVs! It's so fun to go up and down the dunes or just trail along the shore of the beach.




Whale watching

Eight different types of whales travel to Cabo annually: Killer whales, Humpback, Sperm Whale, Blue Whale, Gray Whale, Bryde's Whale, and Fin Whale. You can start seeing them from November to mid-April.



Release turtles

We're lucky enough to have some beaches where turtles come and lay their eggs. Turtles like to lay their eggs where they were born, so you will find them at the same beaches yearly. August and September are the best months to see and assist them.


Fishing

Something is always waiting to snag your line in Los Cabos, from tuna to marlin. Let your kids join the fun and catch their own! You can't imagine how proud they'll be.



Kayaks

A great little workout! You can kayak from Medano Beach to Lover's Beach in an hour or so. Just make sure to keep an eye on your group; you don't want anyone staying behind!


Snorkeling

Admire the marine wildlife in its natural habitat! So many different types of fish and corals to see; your kids' faces will light up when they swim close to them.


Zip lines

You'll have a blast zooming through the desert sky! There is a bit of a trek from line to line, so stay hydrated!




Hike

There are a couple of mountains in Cabo, and you can catch beautiful views from them! This is extra fun when you have a dog.

Walk down the Marina

You can find almost anything in the marina! From restaurants to shopping, there is something to do every step of the way!
