Los Cabos, it’s off the beaten path. It’s a favorite Mexican travel destination for repeat and first-time visitors alike, and “Los Cabos for solo travelers” is a trending topic. Whatever the length of your stay, the size of your family, or your Los Cabos off-the-beaten-path vision, this is a destination that truly offers the best of the best. We have culture, and we have gastronomy, and we also have unbeatable ocean views. But when is the best time to visit Cabo? Well, that depends on what you’re looking for! Welcome to paradise, and we can’t wait to meet you.
When is high season in Los Cabos?
It depends on your travel purpose. High season for wedding and destination events generally lasts February through June, and late October through early December. You’ll find pricing for vacation rentals, wedding venues, and luxury resorts higher during these seasons, as volume floods town and demand for availability rises. Internationally renowned tournaments such as the Bisbee’s Los Cabos Tournament also flush traffic into town during the high season. The plus side is that weather is mild, with warm days for poolside or toes-in-the-sand fun and cooler evenings for fruity cocktails and fireside nightcaps. Cabo is about loving life, so enjoy!
When is the cheapest time to visit Los Cabos?
Summer months are generally considered low season, with high temperatures (think average 93-degree maximums) common during late July through September. The advantage here is that you will find lower room rates at Los Cabos resorts, vacation rentals, and luxury villas meaning an extended stay will be budget-friendly. The downside is the extreme heat, so be sure to venture out hydrated, with sunscreen intact, and with plans to return to your air conditioning firmly in place. Low season is generally the highest risk of hurricanes hitting the coast, so travel insurance, emergency medical plans, and close contact with your hotel or vacation rental’s private concierge should be maintained to make sure your trip is safe and secure in case of an Act of God.

Why Visit Los Cabos?
This is a big one! Los Cabos is renowned as being the prime luxury vacation travel destination in Mexico. We have spoken a lot about the best things to do in Los Cabos, and what vacation rentals are available, but let’s discuss why visit this slice of paradise. 1. Cabo is an endless Summer, so enjoy it! In Cabo, we experience year-round sunshine. Winter is from December through March, with mild temperatures perfect for daytime sunbathing, as well as cooler nights to cozy up by that poolside firepit.
May through October is Summer! This means extremely hot days and warm nights, but your vacation rental’s sure to have state-of-the-art air conditioning, swimmable pools, and access to outdoor areas perfect for evening breezes.
July through September poses the highest risk of rainy days and potential category-rated cyclones. Rates may be lower and emergency plans are always in place, but keep in mind that hurricane season has a mind of its own. Be sure to check forecasts before venturing out, keep up to date with your vacation rental’s concierge, and be sure to stay dry!
2. The locals are friendly! It’s not uncommon to visit Cabo and make friends for life. Locals are warm, friendly, and in many cases bilingual. Don’t be surprised if you're invited for a home-cooked meal or a cheeky ocean-front Margarita. Cabo locals are constantly looking to practice their English, socialize, and welcome people to their hometown.
3. A port to the Baja!
Cabo is not just San Lucas and San Jose. Access to the capital city of La Paz is fast and easy, just a 2.5-hour drive on newly renovated roads. Enjoy amazing hospitality, quaint colonial buildings, and a very up-and-coming city attitude. Wanting to travel North? That’s a trip! Stock up on water, make sure your engine is checked, and travel the Baja. It is truly an experience you will not forgot.
