While it looks like Los Cabos will not be completely full or sold out for the end of this year and the start of the new year, it will be a pretty busy time to enjoy the sun, sand, and surf in the third most popular destination in Mexico.

Current projections are for about 90 percent of the available resort and hotel rooms to be full in Los Cabos for celebrations to close out the year.

Officials with the Los Cabos Tourism Trust remarked that the occupancy number really has not shifted much as many of the available resort and hotel rooms were booked for the end-of-the-year holidays weeks and months in advance.

Recently, Los Cabos business owners recently canceled the fireworks show on El Medano beach to ring in the new year due to the risk of safety and security for travelers and locals.

However, a drone display is currently planned instead of the fireworks celebration.
