In 2023, Los Cabos tourism has been breaking many previously-set records, reaching highs never seen before, even during what is typically considered to be a low season.
At all-time highs, tourism in Los Cabos has been booming as the destination has become a trending location for tourists on various social media platforms.
Despite consistently high prices, travelers have continued to visit the Baja California Sur destination in droves over the past few months.
Hotel occupancy rates have remained high, only recently dipping slightly in the past few fall months.
Los Cabos officials expect that as the seasons change from fall to winter, the tourist numbers will rise once again, and with it, hotel occupancy will rise accordingly.
Due to the changing temperatures and numerous upcoming events and holidays, local BCS authorities predict that there will be a surge in local tourism in the next few months.
Here’s what you should keep in mind if you choose to book your next trip to Los Cabos in the next few months.
Los Cabos’ final summer and early fall months are famous for the impending hurricane season that takes place each year, often causing numerous beach closures and other weather-dependent issues.
After the transition from summer to fall, Los Cabos’ weather improves significantly as the dry season begins.
The dry season in Los Cabos is arguably the best time to visit weather-wise, as you can visit the many beaches without having to worry about possible closures due to strong currents and can pursue other outdoor activities without worrying about the rain or high winds.
From November to April, barring any random occurrences, you won’t have to expect heavy rainfall or other abnormal weather conditions and can enjoy warm temperatures and sunshine without it being unbearably hot.
During these months, you can try all of the water-based activities that Los Cabos is famous for and go scuba diving, snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking, swimming with dolphins, and so much more.
In a recent statement to the public, Lilzi Orcí Fregoso (the executive president of the Los Cabos Hotel Association) announced that he predicts there will be an influx of tourists coming into Los Cabos in the second week of October.
This seemingly super-specific time estimate is based on the local events that are scheduled to take place from the middle of October through November.
According to Fregoso, one of the biggest tourist attraction events scheduled to take place is the Bisbee sport fishing competition, as it draws competitors from all over the world.
Similarly, the World Wide Technology Championship 2023, hosted as part of the PGA Tours tournament, will take place from November 2-5 and draw golfers and fans of golf from across the globe to the El Cardonal golf course at Diamante.
Other local events include food festivals, wine conventions, film festivals, music festivals, and other entertainment events that can appeal to the interests and budgets of any traveler.
With colder temperatures comes the holiday season, and the most wonderful time of the year typically results in families taking vacation time to spend quality time with their loved ones.
Fall and winter holidays that will be sure to draw crowds looking for a warm getaway include Thanksgiving Day, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day.
These holidays, according to Fregoso, typically result in a hotel occupancy rate of “above 75% during the last quarter.”
With all-inclusive resorts offering deals to travelers, families or large groups can vacation in style during one of the most expensive high seasons of the year without breaking the bank.
Other local holidays during the fall months include National Hispanic-Latino Heritage Month (September through October) and Día de los Muertos (early November).
During this holiday season, although hotel occupancy rises from the low season, you can still avoid the crowds seen in peak seasons like the summer.
