So, what does this mean for the destination and how is it preparing to receive the influx of travelers this spring break?  Let’s take a look: 

A Shift In The Trend 

Robbin Hernández, president of the Association of Professionals and Business Leaders of Los Cabos, notes a significant shift in spring break travelers.  

Los Cabos has now emerged as Mexico’s priciest spring break destination.  

All-inclusive resorts, luxury amenities, and exclusive experiences are drawing in a more affluent crowd, contributing to an increase in overall spending and a boost to the Los Cabos economy.  

Luxury at a Premium 

For Los Cabos, the average daily expenditure for visitors ranges between $150 and $170, significantly higher than Cancún’s $80 to $120 range.  

This premium spending reflects the desire for top-notch accommodations, gourmet dining, and exclusive leisure activities.

A Variety Of Premium Experiences  

From VIP access to top-rated beach clubs and upscale dining experiences to poolside cabana rentals and water sports, spring breakers in Los Cabos can participate in a variety of luxury experiences.  

These luxury experiences elevate the typical spring break for U.S. travelers, and the difference in spending is reflected in the cost of services.  

While Cancún offers bar packages ranging from $100 to $150, a table in Los Cabos is priced between $2,000 and $3,000.  

Concert revenue may be comparable between the two destinations, but Los Cabos offers a more intimate experience with smaller crowds.  

From beach parties to yachts, visitors can experience a variety of activities tailored to their tastes.

Economic Impact on the Rise 

In 2023, American students on spring break spent a total of $32 million into the Los Cabos economy, a $7 million increase from the previous year.  

With even higher expectations for 2024, Los Cabos cements its top spot as a luxury spring break destination.  

This influx of spending benefits local businesses creates job opportunities, and enhances infrastructure development.   

This gives Los Cabos’ an opportunity to grow along its popularity and continue to offer travelers a memorable luxury experience.
