March is a beautiful time to visit Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. In addition to the ideal weather conditions, there are a number of exciting and enriching events happening this month. Here are just a few:
Festival of San Jose
The Festival of San Jose honors the patron saint, San José (St. Joseph) with an 11-day festival that culminates on March 19 every year. On March 8, the festival begins with parties and music in the evening and grows into carnivals and parades on the weekends. Visit the beautiful San Jose to sample food from local vendors, pick up one-of-a-kind gifts and enjoy special sweet treats.
Todos Santos Film Festival: March 15 – 21
The Todos Santos Film Festival is a cinema lover’s dream! “The main focus of the Film Festival Todos Santos is to enrich audiences, attracting film festivals and awarded with the highest social and artistic value. The festival has a strong commitment to social documentary genre, which also empowers the local community about the social movements in the world.” Movies and short films will be shown, and special guests will be in attendance throughout the festival. Todos Santos is approximately an hour north of Cabo San Lucas.
Baja Shakespeare Festival
This year, its 16th, Baja Shakespeare presents The Lost Barrels of Pleasure Island March 11 – 13 and March 16 – 19. Performances will take place at Hotel Buenavista Resort and Spa in Todos Santos.
Coming early this year, Easter falls on March 27. Being a predominantly Catholic country, it is not surprising that Easter (or Pascau) is a popular local holiday. La Estancia Vacations can help you find a church or place of worship before the big holiday. It’s also important to remember that schools are out for two weeks surrounding the holiday and many government businesses will be closed from Thursday on. Being Los Cabos, and being a popular time for visitors, most businesses stay open and most activities will run without interruption. Nevertheless, those planning activities Easter weekend should double-check with the concierge to ensure everything is running as normal.
