Attend Los Cabos’ Largest Food Festival 

In December one of the largest food festivals in Los Cabos, Sabor a Cabo, takes place on December 2 this year.   

The event was on a hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic for three years and is returning with all of the fanfare of an inaugural event.   

At the Sabor a Cabo event, the 3,000 guests that attend can taste from the menus of over 50 restaurants and 45 wineries while enjoying live music.   

Tickets to the event start at around $350 for general admission.   

Learn About Los Cabos Christmas Traditions 

In Los Cabos, Christmas celebrations are not confined to one day but rather last throughout the month starting on December 12 and lasting through January 6.   

A variety of festivities take place throughout the month, including feasts, fiestas, religious services, and even a nautical boat parade that is held in Cabo San Lucas.   

Particularly between the dates of December 16th and the 24th, you’ll see an uptick in parties in town, and on Christmas Eve many of the resorts host a fabulous holiday dinner.

See Whales That Migrate From Alaska 

Whale-watching season in Los Cabos begins in December when whales migrate to the area from Alaska to give birth and mate.   

The season lasts through around April, but earlier in the season is the best time to catch a glimpse of these massive majestic creatures.   

While whales can sometimes be seen from the shore or the balconies of hotels and some dining establishments, the best way to see them is on a boat tour.   

Tours start at around $60 and can go much higher depending on what is included.

Watch The Best Fireworks Show Of The Year On The Beach 

Mexico is known for its celebrations, and on New Year’s Eve, or Nochevieja, you’ll see that in Los Cabos when they hold the best fireworks show of the year.   

Multiple events will be held on New Year’s Eve throughout the Los Cabos area, but the best place to be is in the area of Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas.
