September 21 marks the official end to summer…but in Los Cabos, what does that really mean? Well, here’s what we think is important to know about September in Cabo.
1. Fall’s Coolness Hasn’t Arrived, But That’s Okay
When dead-of-winter temperatures hover in the upper 70s, one wouldn’t imagine there would be too much cooling with the arrival of “fall.” Average temperatures in September are in the mid-80s, and guests can expect some tropical weather patterns.
2. It’s Mexico’s Independence Day
Not exactly the 4th of July, Mexico’s Independence Day runs from the evening of September 15 through the 16th. The Independence celebration marks the day that Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest, launched the Mexican War of Independence with the issuing of his Grito de Dolores, or “Cry of Delores. Check with your concierge for any closures, celebrations, etc that day.
3. Expect Some Great Travel Deals and Fewer Crowds
Thanks to September’s spot in shoulder season, visitors this month will typically enjoy fewer crowds on the beach, waits at restaurants and lower prices all around. Flights during this month are a definite spot for consumers to save!
4. Sportfishing, Like the Temperatures, are Hot
Fishing in Baja is driven ultimately by water temperatures. In September, when water temperatures are quite warm, it is an ideal time for fishing some of the region’s most popular fish. Anglers, new and experienced, can expect to reel in Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna. Not surprisingly, fall brings the big fishing contest.
