One of Los Cabos’ busiest tourism seasons has begun, and officials in the vacation destination are getting ready for the arrival of thousands of visitors.   

During these busy times, security is typically ramped up to ensure tourist safety.   

It’s for this reason that Los Cabos is preparing a security operation to keep tourists safe as the high season gets underway.

When The Security Operation Will Begin And End 

Although the wintertime is in general busy throughout, the busiest time is through the holidays.   

It is during the weeks between Christmas festivities and the days after the new year that the vacation destination will host the most winter visitors.   

It’s no surprise then, that the biggest boost in security will coincide with that timeframe, so security presence will increase between December 22 and January 6.

Los Cabos In The Wintertime 

There’s a reason that so many people visit Los Cabos during the winter months, numerous reasons in fact, but one specifically draws thousands of tourists from the United States and Canada.   

The weather….  

Throughout the winter, Los Cabos remains warm enough to enjoy the beaches and outdoor activities, hovering around 80 degrees during the daytime, so it’s the perfect escape from cold weather.

Expected Occupancy This High Season 

Hotels in Los Cabos are already filling up quickly, and the high season is just beginning.   

Lilzzi Orci Fregoso, president of the Los Cabos Hotel Association, is predicting even more visitor arrivals as the Christmas holiday approaches.   

Hotel occupancy rates during this time period are predicted to reach as high as 90 percent or more.

Why Officials Increase Security During High Season 

The biggest reason for increasing security during the high season is the massive arrival of tourists.   

This huge influx of visitors can bring out petty criminals looking to prey on tourists.   

Additionally, crime often increases during the holiday season, no matter where you go, but more security officials can help reduce crime.

Who’s In Charge Of Security In Los Cabos 

Officials deploy security operatives from a number of different organizations.   

Municipal police, state police, and the National Guard, or federal police, all work together to keep the destination safe for tourists.
