It’s safe to say that 2023 has been a good year for Los Cabos, as tourism rates have been higher than ever, and consistently growing.
With an estimated 4 million people having visited Los Cabos in 2023, the Baja California Sur trending destination seems to only be growing in terms of popularity.
Because of its growing popularity, the destination had no low season, with constantly high hotel occupancy rates and high prices.
The end of the year is fast approaching, and with it come predictions for the end of 2024.
A recent announcement of a prediction has signified that Los Cabos will end the year on a high note, with hotel occupancy at 90% for the holiday season.
This comes after Los Cabos’ hotel occupancy rates climbed to 70-80% in the fall months.
Why Los Cabos Hotels Have Such High Occupancy Rates
According to the executive president of the Los Cabos Hotel Association Lilzi Orcí, local officials expect Los Cabos hotels to reach 90% capacity by the end of the year due to the holiday season.
Orcí stated that oftentimes, holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day result in the peak travel season in Los Cabos.
This rise in hotel occupancy rates mirrors the tourism rates last year, as hotel occupancy also reached 90% in December.
He noted that the challenge going into 2024 will be maintaining the incredibly high hotel occupancy rates that hotels and luxury resorts saw all throughout 2023, even during periods that are typically low travel seasons.
