  • Cabo San Lucas Weather: Chart of the Typical Highs and Lows

    Below you’ll find a month by month chart of typical highs and lows. Click here to read today’s Cabo San Lucas weather forecast.

    Use this chart to determine the best time to plan your trip. Consider whether the main purpose of your trip is to go fishing, shop for real estate, partake of the nightlife or just relax by the pool. If you’re a fisherman, the tournament months are October and November.

    Top Experiences in Los Cabos


    Catch and Release a Marlin

    This is the sport that originally put Los Cabos on the map, and keeps it there—fishing! Even for someone who has never been fishing, playing the indigo seas while savoring the stunning scenery from a new perspective makes for an amazing day. Everyone, even non-anglers, will get excited when the line goes screaming out behind a jumping marlin, as it “greyhounds” off into the ocean.

    “Under the Boardwalk, Down by the Sea”
    Lined with restaurants and bars that are terrific for people-watching, and complete with an air-conditioned shopping mall to pop into when the afternoon heat gets you down, perhaps no place in Baja pulses to the tourist beat quite the way Cabo’s marina does.
    Thousands of these mammoth cetaceans make their lengthy migrations between December and April, swimming nearly 10,000 km (6,000 mi) from Alaska and Canada to mate and give birth in Baja’s warm(ish), west-coast lagoons; they make the trGo Whale-Watching
    A number of whale-watching tours are available, most of them centered around Scammon’s Lagoon, San Ignacio Lagoon, and Magdalena Bay, where tourists go in pangas (small boats) out into the lagoons. Oftentimes, the whales and their new babies will approach the boat, rubbing against it, and looking with their sweet brown eyes at the people inside.ip without even stopping to eat, they’re in such a rush to get to Mexico (we know how they feel).

    Art and Wine in San José del Cabo

    Art lovers unite on Thursday evenings in San José del Cabo, where the Art District Association is behind the Thursday Night Art Walk. With at least 15 impressive art galleries to visit in several square blocks, the district is located north and west of the town’s centuries-old church. The art walk takes place from 5 to 9 pm, November through June. The informal, unguided tour makes for a fun opportunity to drink (free) wine, and be amazed by all forms and variations of art, from amber jewelry, photography, and Huichol beadwork to very pricey sculptures from top Mexican artists.

    Enjoy the Fiestas

    Festivals include Carnaval (February or March, before Lent); Semana Santa (March or April, the week before Easter Sunday); Día de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (December 12); and Las Posadas (December 16-25). Don’t expect to see much folkloric tradition in avowedly secular Cabo San Lucas or the Corridor. For that festival flavor of old Mexico, head to San José del Cabo, Todos Santos, La Paz, Loreto, or other smaller, more traditional communities.

     

    Quick list of things to bring to the beach for your vacation in Cabo San Lucas

    The time is finally here. That much awaited summer vacation is just a few days away and you are already picturing yourself with your swimsuit enjoying the sun and the waves.

    Well, before you grab your luggage and head over to your destination make sure you consider a few important things to bring to the beach that will make your trip more enjoyable.

    Some of the items in the list might sound obvious at this moment but you know that sometimes you are in hurry and you might space out with some of the items.
    Important things to bring to the beach:

    Sunscreen.- Whether you are planning a trip to the mountains or a beach holiday, sunscreen is a necessity. The sun on slopes is just as strong and damaging to the skin as the sun on a beach. But you may not sense it because of the cold climate.

    Prescription medicines.-Make sure there are enough doses to last for the entire trip. It can be difficult to refill prescriptions out of town and almost impossible to refill them overseas.

    Hand sanitiser.- Hand sanitiser is a great way to keep hands clean and germ free when travelling in areas where clean water may not always be available.

    First aid kit.- A first aid kit is always a good idea especially if traveling in an area where you do not speak the language.

    Wet tissues.- While you pack your soap, toothpaste and towels, pack wet tissues and toilet paper as well. They will come in handy to wipe excess perspiration if you are visiting a hot country or just to keep your hands and face clean.

    Sunglasses.- Sunglasses are important to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Unless a traveller wears special glasses which darken and protect the eyes, sunglasses are a must on any trip.

    Plastic bags and waste paper.- Plastic bags provide a way to keep dirty or wet laundry separate from clean clothes while travelling. Do pack waste cloth and paper. They would come in handy, especially if you are travelling with kids .

    Ziplock bags.- Great for packing toiletries which might leak in a suitcase. The seal on the bag will keep most liquids inside even if the bottle leaks.

    Photocopies.- Photocopies of important documents like passports, drivers licenses and even credit cards should be packed in your suitcase. All the suitcases that you are carrying should have the photocopies of these documents. If a wallet or a purse is stolen, the copies make it easier to replace these documents.

    Travel maps.- Travel maps of the area make finding your way in a strange place easier. Members of auto clubs can usually get maps of most cities at no charge. Obtain maps before leaving on a trip to make sightseeing easier.

    Small locks.- Although people travelling by air cannot lock their suitcases for the flight, small locks should be packed so that suitcases can be locked when they are left unattended in hotel rooms.

    Insect repellent.- Biting insects are found in most countries and they often carry diseases so it is best to avoid being bitten.

    The two most obvious things to bring to the beach that are worth a mention are:

    Swimsuit.- Might sound too obvious but you’ll be surprised how many people forget theirs and end up buying expensive ones at their destinations.

    Sandals.- Another obvious one that some people take for granted and then they aren’t able to walk over the sand because is too hot.

    Make sure fun is among the things you bring to the beach.

    About Ixtapa Zihuatanejo


    Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo: two distinctly different yet neighboring places on the Mexican Pacific.

    Zihuatanejo, a fishing port for centuries, embraced by Zihuatanejo Bay, retains its old-Mexico charm. Just 10 minutes (6 kilometers/3.7 miles) up the coast, Ixtapa is a modern world-class resort. Together they comprise one tropical destination that is indeed twice as pleasing.

    Zihuatanejo hotels are smaller. They range from economy (in town, near or on beaches) to grand luxury properties situated on La Ropa Beach or overlooking the Bay.

    Most Ixtapa hotels are located in the Hotel Zone along Palmar Beach (just across the avenue from the village-like shopping “plazas”). However one major hotel is nearby on its own cove, and three others are just up the coast at Playa Linda.

    Los Cabos, meta de la carrera internacional de yates Corona del Mar

    San Lucas, B.C.S.- Este puerto turístico fungió como recinto de llegada para el evento bianual “Carrera Internacional de Yates Corona del Mar a Cabo San Lucas”, el cual tuvo una participación de más de 20 equipos, lo que representa a unas 400 personas involucradas quienes, durante el pasado fin de semana, concluyeron la carrera con una emotiva celebración.

    Este puerto turístico fungió como recinto de llegada para el evento bianual “Carrera Internacional de Yates Corona del Mar a Cabo San Lucas”, el cual tuvo una participación de más de 20 equipos, lo que representa a unas 400 personas involucradas quienes, durante el pasado fin de semana, concluyeron la carrera con una emotiva celebración.

    En el evento, el director de Turismo Municipal, Jacobo Turquie, quien, con la representación del Presidente Municipal de los Cabos, recibió a los competidores, resaltó la importancia de esta actividad.
    Explicó que ellos hacen una carrera cada 2 años, partiendo desde Newport y llegando hasta Los Cabos y que, este año en particular, tuvieron récord de tiempo en llegada, porque la gran mayoría del recorrido había vientos de hasta 30 nudos, y aunque se registraron algunos percances en el trayecto, todos llegaron a la meta.
    En la ceremonia de premiación, Turquie Alcérreca detalló que, a la llegada de los primeros veleros, estos fueron recibidos con fuegos artificiales, lo que representó para los competidores una bienvenida muy grata, aunque sólo hayan sido 20 equipos los participantes en esta tradicional regata, ellos representan alrededor de 400 personas.
    El titular de Turismo en el Municipio agregó que esta actividad no sólo representa proyección para el destino, sino que, al mismo tiempo, genera una impresionante derrama económica, pues en el lugar de origen de estos participantes, atrae a un gran número de seguidores la actividad.
    Finalmente, hizo entrega de algunos reconocimientos a todos los participantes y también unos premios a los tres primeros lugares e hizo extensiva la invitación a seguir viniendo a Los Cabos.
