This was confirmed by Lilzi Orci Fregoso, the Los Cabos Hotel Sector Representative, who recently declared that Los Cabos is expected to welcome around 40 thousand students starting March 1st. 

This year, visitors may exceed all records as Spring Break will coincide with Easter, one of Mexico’s most important holidays. 

In this regard, the Los Cabos Hotel Association recently declared: “We have already started with these meetings to coordinate efforts between the authorities, the hotel sector, and the companies that have the majority of reservations. (…) We feel it is a fundamental key to the success of the Spring Break season.”

Spring Break season will officially begin on March 1st and continue for five weeks. Los Cabos is therefore expecting high occupancy rates for the whole month, with current predictions estimating an 81% hotel occupancy. But what can tourists expect from their Spring Break holiday in Los Cabos?

What should tourists expect?

Los Cabos will offer a series of concerts both in popular hotels in the area and on some of the most popular beaches to entertain students and other visitors. 

Among these, the presence of world-renowned DJs, including Steve Aoki and Diplo, was recently announced.

On top of this, most resorts and hotels will organize events so that students will be able to get to know each other and make the most out of their time off university. 

Is Los Cabos expensive? 

Tourists heading to Los Cabos soon may now be wondering whether this Mexican municipality is expensive. Unfortunately, the answer is yes. 

According to the Association of Professionals and Business Leaders, Los Cabos remains the most expensive destination for Spring Break in Mexico.

Current estimates show that the average Los Cabos springbreaker will spend about $170 per day! 

Not by chance, but data show that this place is 20% more expensive than other popular areas, such as Cancun. However, there are a few ways in which visitors heading here can save money

For instance, people can opt for an Airbnb or a hostel instead of spending hundreds of dollars per night on an all-inclusive resort.

If opting for an all-inclusive is a non-negotiable, then it is advisable to gather a huge group of friends to share the costs, as this strategy can help save hundreds of dollars every day. 

Apart from accommodation, people can try to save money by planning their transfers in advance, opting for round trips, or staying close to places where they will spend most of their time instead of paying a taxi daily to reach a certain beach. 

Lastly, tourists should check different packages offered by both resorts and airline companies. These can help you save tons of money, for instance, by making use of special deals by booking both your accommodation and flight on the same platform. 

More security

With over 40 thousand people expected to flock to Los Cabos soon, local business owners have decided to increase security to make sure everyone stays safe at all times. 

For instance, some business owners, including the El Medano Business Owners Association, have decided to invest money in video surveillance cameras and systems to prevent crimes and other illegal activities. 

These cameras are connected to the Los Cabos regional network, meaning that in case of crime, law enforcement would be able to act immediately.

On top of this, the Los Cabos government decided to increase security by adding more patrols to further help law enforcement. 

These will be located in some of the most popular sites in the municipality, including the busiest beaches, the Transpeninsular Highway, and the Fonatur Roundabout. 

In this regard, tourists should always carry identification documents with them as well as their Mexican visitor cards, to present to the authorities if asked.
