Best Time to Visit Cabo

The best time to visit Cabo depends on what you like regarding the weather, things to do, and how many people are around.

Plan your trip between November and April if you love basking in the sun and enjoying perfect beach weather. Cabo is at its sunniest in those months, with temperatures just right for outdoor adventures and lounging by the sea.

But, if you’re a fan of marine life, especially whales, you’ll want to visit between December and April. This is the magical time when humpback whales grace the waters near Cabo, offering an unforgettable experience.

And if you prefer a quieter, more peaceful Cabo, consider May to June or September to October, when the crowds thin out, giving you more space to explore and relax.

At Los Cabos

I used to live in Los Cabos for some time and worked here as a boat captain in one of Cabo San Lucas' leading tour companies. Back then, I came for 6 months but stayed for 18. I've done a bunch of things, and visited multiple hemispheres. I traveled and lived in other countries. And now I'm back here, At Los Cabos.
