Why are festivals opening now?
There is never a shortage of things to do when in Los Cabos, but festivals have always been proud traditions for the area to show off entertainment and culture. When Covid 19 hit, like everything else around the world, local festivals had to pause their events for the foreseeable future.
Health authorities in Los Cabos are taking steps to return to normal. Due to cases of Covid 19 dropping in the area, more festivals are free to welcome back their guests.
Heart of tourism season
The festivals taking place coincide with the heart of tourism season for the Los Cabos area. Typically, Los Cabos will see its peak tourism season from mid-December until the end of April.
Pairing these festivals around the peak of tourism, helps showcase local vendors, restaurants, and charitable foundations to an even larger audience.
