When is the best time to visit Cabo?
The best time to travel to Cabo San Lucas depends a lot on your preferences and your plans. Want to go whale watching? Definitely visit in the winter. Looking for the best deals? Try July and August. All about the weather? May and June are known for sunny days and comfortable temperatures.
That being said, don’t overlook a fall vacation in this tropical paradise. In October and November, the summer heat has moved on, but the peak season has yet to hit. It’s a perfect in-between moment with shoulder season deals and fewer crowds. Fall’s daytime temperatures in Cabo typically hover in the 80s, while temps dip into the mid-60s in the evening. You can expect some tropical precipitation in early October, but things really start to dissipate mid-October on.
A sportfishing fan? Fall is also a great time to hit the water for incredible deep sea fishing. In fact, October and November play host to some of the most popular fishing tournaments including the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament, Tuna Jackpot Tournament, and Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Tournament.
Known as the “World’s Richest Fishing Tournaments,” the Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Tournament brings thousands of people to the “marina walkways to shop, party and watch huge fish being weighed in at the scales in front of the world-famous Puerto Paraiso Entertainment Plaza. The Black & Blue is a once in a lifetime experience you’ll never forget, whether you take home memories or millions.” Learn more about Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Tournament.
Whether you savor it or take a shot of it, don’t miss the Baja Sur Tequila and Mariachi Festival in Los Cabos. From October 17 to October 19, sample some of the finest tequilas Mexico has to offer, learn the history of the country’s most famous export and enjoy the music of amazing mariachi bands.
