☀️ Best time to visit Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas is an all-year-round destination. It does not have the same humidity as mainland Mexico does (i.e. Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, or the Oaxacan coast of Puerto Escondido).

It is still on top of the list of places to visit in Mexico in August.  However, many expats go back to their home countries in August as it is less hot than in Mexico.

October – May are still popular high seasons because of the combination of the cool weather and sunshine.

Many expats celebrate major events like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year in Cabo San Lucas. But expect your travel costs to be higher and huge crowds at this time.
