The Best Time of Year to Travel to Cabo

Cabo San Lucas is one of the most gorgeous and delightful places in the world. With its sunny weather, inviting beaches, and stunningly beautiful waters, it's a must-see destination for many people. There really isn't a bad time to experience it for yourself. However, some particular times may be better than others depending on why you're visiting. Below, we'll suggest the best time of year to go to Cabo based on some of the most popular reasons people visit this scenic wonderland. 

Escaping Winter's Clutch

Are you tired of massive piles of snow, bitter cold, and brutal winds? If so, it may be time to visit Cabo, where the sunny warmth invites you to relax on the beach, play in the tropical waters, and forget winter's chill. The coldest things you'll encounter in Cabo are the frozen margaritas! Just remember to pack a light wrap or jacket since desert nights cool off quickly. That said, a shawl beats a parka any day!

Since whales also visit Cabo to give birth in its tropical waters before heading to their colder feeding grounds, late winter is also the perfect time to enjoy a whale watching tour.

Enjoying Amazing Special Events

Cabo plays host to several international events throughout the year. Here are a few crowd favorites:

  • The Stars & Stripes Fishing Tournament is a world-class charity fundraiser that benefits several children's charities in Southern California and Mexico. It takes place in June and features a sportfishing tournament, golf tournament, and music festival.
  • June is also the month when the Fiesta De La Musica takes place. This international celebration of music brings together local, national, and international groups representing many different musical genres.
  • The Abierto de Tenis Los Cabos takes place in July and attracts many of the best tennis players in the world.
  • The Cabo Ironman 70.3 takes place in early November and attracts participants and spectators from around the world.

Avoiding the Biggest Crowds

If you prefer a quieter ambiance, August and September are the best times to visit. It's the 'rainy season' in Cabo and consequently many sun-worshippers stay away. However, there's only an 18-20% chance of rain on any given day and temperatures are still in the low 90s. That makes a dip in the ocean as refreshing as always. The beaches, restaurants, and bars will all be less crowded and quieter than usual.

Admiring Cabo's Abundant Sea Life

October and November are the best months for experiencing the exuberance of life in the 'world's aquarium'. The water is still holding onto summer's warmth and is the clearest it will be all year. That makes it a snorkeling and diving paradise! You'll be amazed at the number and variety of colorful fish and other sea life you'll see when you visit Cabo in the late fall.

If you're lucky, you might come face to face with a plankton-filtering whale shark. These gentle giants are the world's biggest fish and can reach lengths of forty feet and weigh as much as three adult elephants!

Enjoying a Special Destination Event

Cabo is the place to go for a destination wedding! However, weddings aren't the only destination events that bring people to Cabo. Family reunions and corporate retreats are also popular reasons for gathering in Cabo. Can you think of a more special place to invite your group?
