Although the weather is amazing year-round, you’ll have a different, unique experiences depending on the specific time of year. Here’s what you need to know when visiting Cabo San Lucas during certain seasons.
Known for some of the most spectacular whale-watching in Baja, Cabo San Lucas is the spot to be December through April if you’re interested in catching a glimpse of these majestic creatures. Spring is also a great time of year to visit if you want to experience unique events that highlight traditional Mexican culture, like the Festival of San Jose and Semana Santa. The weather during this time of year is mild with temperatures ranging from 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit (15-20 degrees Celsius) and minimal rainfall.
Mid-march through early-April is a time of year when many people flock to Cabo San Lucas for spring break, so you can expect it to be busier than normal.
Often considered the best time of year to visit, May through June is known as the “shoulder season”: when the Los Cabos communities recover from a busy winter and spring and prepare for summer. Smaller crowds mean you’ll have more privacy and a more intimate setting, while mild temperatures still offer the sunshine and warmth that allows you to enjoy all the Los Cabos area has to offer.
There aren’t really any negatives to consider when planning a trip to Cabo San Lucas in May and June. Because this is the best time to visit, Cabo San Lucas continues to be a relatively popular spot during these two months.

Though it’s summertime, the frequent rain deters many visitors from visiting Cabo San Lucas during this period – which can be considered a good thing depending on how you feel about rain and crowds. Many travelers looking for a relaxing, luxurious getaway, however, find that the off-season is a great time to visit their vacation homes because it can be as if they have the entire town to themselves. Visit in September for your best chance to partake in the festivities that occur during Mexican Independence Day.
Cabo San Lucas has an average of 350 days of sunshine each year, meaning the chances of it being sunny when you visit are high. However, heavy rain storms are possible during the off-season, and can be pretty intense. Also, with temperatures soaring into the high 90s Fahrenheit (32+ degrees Celsius), this time of year can also be the warmest of all.
With summer season over, temperatures begin to drop back down to comfortable heights and rainy days become few and far between. This is also the time of year where the area prepares for a busy winter season. Activities like golf and other outdoor pursuits can be enjoyed without the presence of a heavy tourist population. There are also several fishing tournaments held during these months, including the Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot, the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament, and Bisbee’s Los Cabos Offshore Tournament. Each of these tournaments attracts hundreds contestants from across the globe and offers hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and prizes to winners.
