Are you in need of a vacation? You can find your sweet escape in Cabo! Cabo is located at the end of the Baja Peninsula and is home to gorgeous beaches and plenty of exciting things to do. It’s one of the few places in the world where the desert, mountains, and water all come together to showcase nature’s beauty! To help guarantee you have a great time when you visit, we’ve put together a guide of how to plan the perfect vacation in Cabo:
1. Decide when to visit.
The truth is, there’s never a bad time to visit Cabo! Besides the peak season, one of the best times is from May through the beginning of August. October and November are also popular times to visit! Temperatures tend to be the hottest from August through mid-October, but the weather is beautiful all year round. Depending on the type of vacation you’re planning, here are some times that might work best for you:
For families with kids: Any time is a great time for families to visit, but Cabo gets most popular during the summer when kids are out of school. Condo prices are less during this time, as well as prices for flights. When your kids are out of school for the summer, bring them to Cabo for a family vacation they’ll never forget!
For snorkeling & outdoor activities: Of course when you come to Cabo you’re going to want to spend time exploring its natural beauty and having fun outside! If you want to go snorkeling and diving, you’ll be happy to know that snorkeling is great ALL of the time. If you’re hoping to spot whale sharks, they come in late October/early November and stay through the month of April. Whales also come in early November and stay through March. We recommend trying a whale watching tour when you visit! All of our beachfront condos also offer incredible whale watching opportunities. You can see the mom and baby whales right from your balcony! You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to explore the outdoors during these months, and all throughout the year in Cabo. Cabo has blue skies, sunshine and a slight breeze for a majority of the year, and temperatures tend to stick around low to mid 80s with the exception of August, September, and the first couple weeks of October. During these months, temperatures can reach low to mid 90s. This means there’s never a bad time to be outside!
2. Choose where to stay.
There are 3 areas in Cabo where you can choose to stay: Cabo San Lucas, San Jose Del Cabo, and Cabo Corridor. We have a variety of gorgeous vacation rentals available in all three places! San Jose del Cabo tends to have a more peaceful scene, where Cabo San Lucas has a more upbeat atmosphere. If you’re looking for a tranquil city with natural and cultural attractions and stunning beaches, stay in San Jose del Cabo. If you’re looking for a vibrant nightlife scene and gorgeous beaches, choose Cabo San Lucas. The Los Cabos Corridor is the coastal highway strip that connects the two cities. It puts you close to all the exciting activities! Staying on the Corridor gives you the opportunity to be beachfront and just steps away from the water. The peaceful environment allows you to listen to the waves during both day and night!
