5 Reasons to Visit Los Cabos this Winter

5 Reasons to Visit Los Cabos this Winter

  1. 1. New Year’s Eve. New Year’s Eve is celebrated in a big, big way in Cabo San Lucas, notably on Medano Beach (Playa El Médano), which is usually a throbbing mass of revelers by midnight. Spectacular fireworks display ushers in the New Year, an annual tradition. For those who want to ring in 2018 on the water, three-hour New Year’s cruises featuring appetizers, catered dinner and open international bar depart from Cabo San Lucas marina. 
  1. 2. Whales. Starting in December, hundreds of grey and humpback whales journey upwards of 6,000 miles from the Arctic Sea to the warm, calm waters surrounding the Baja Peninsula. Balmy weather, ideal salinity and nutrient-rich waters make the bays and lagoons around Los Cabos the perfect place for whales to birth and rear their young. Of the eight species that venture to Los Cabos, the most popular are the humpback whales, which spout close to shore and thrust themselves out of the water in fantastic leaps. Guests at Pueblo Bonito’s oceanfront resorts, Pacifica and Sunset Beach, can view these majestic creatures from lookouts throughout the resort properties. So can residents at Copala and Coronado, the two residential communities within Quivira Los Cabos; and golfers lucky enough to glimpse a breaching whale from one of the spectacular seaside holes at Quivira Golf Club. 
  1. 3. Fishing. Los Cabos is a renowned deep-sea fishing capital for the simple reason that more big-game fish are caught here than anywhere else in the world. The exceptionally high catch success rate applies even to those with limited fishing experience. December is an excellent month to angle for wahoo and yellow fin tuna, each a prized species known for their fight and speed. They’re delicious at table, too. Striped marlin are plentiful during the winter months, as are different species of shark. Inshore fishing is also popular, with snapper, sierra mackerel, amberjack and other game fish taken through March. 
  1. 4. Eat – Shop – Play. The San Jose del Cabo Art Walk, held on Thursdays starting at 5:00 p.m., is a great way to explore the colonial city’s art galleries and restaurants. Now there’s another option. Newly established in the city’s historic Art District is “Musical Tuesdays.” Starting at 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday, visitors can enjoy traditional Mexican music and complimentary drinks at participating venues, view art as they stroll the town’s enchanting streets, and dine at one of the many superb restaurants in San Jose del Cabo. 
  1. 5. Weather. In a word, it’s perfect. Situated just below the Tropic of Cancer, Los Cabos enjoys a mild Mediterranean-like climate during the winter months, with humidity conditions like Palm Springs, Calif. The difference here is that cool breezes from the Sea of Cortes and the Pacific Ocean transform Los Cabos into a tropical paradise. Mild, sunny days with little or no rainfall prevail all winter long, a pure delight for snowbirds. The climate is ideal for all outdoor sports, from desert hiking to sea kayaking.
