In 2023, Los Cabos has broken numerous tourism records and local Baja California Sur officials predict that things will only go up from here. 

There are many reasons travelers from all over the world have been heading to Los Cabos for their vacations, including luxury accommodations, amazing blue flag beaches, and all-inclusive resorts. 

Typically, Los Cabos’ low season is during the fall months, as families aren’t traveling due to hurricane threats and the fact that they are sending their children back to school. 

However, with tourism in Los Cabos booming this year, their low season is not truly a “low season” economically or otherwise.

Even during the fall months, Los Cabos prices have remained high due to a large influx of travelers coming to the luxury destination in the approaching colder months. 

In the month of September alone, which is considered a particularly low travel month for most vacation destinations, Los Cabos hotels are predicted to have an occupancy rate of 40% or higher, according to the president of the Los Cabos Hotel Association. 

Traveling to Los Cabos during the fall months has numerous perks: You can avoid the crowds, try sport fishing during the best season, and stay out of the cold weather by venturing to a warm destination.

Another one of the reasons that tourism is flourishing in Los Cabos, especially during this time period, is because of what’s known as National Month

What is National Month? 

National Month, also referred to as National Hispanic-Latino Heritage Month, is a month-long celebration of Hispanic cultures and histories in the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and other countries around the world. 

The Heritage Month commences annually in the streets of Cabo San Lucas with food and live entertainment.

Musical performances, historical reenactments, dancing, fireworks, and colorful decorations fill Los Cabos all through the month of September into early October, providing an incredible experience for both locals and tourists.

In addition to entertainment as a form of celebration, Los Cabos also offers numerous tours that highlight Mexican history and educate both locals and tourists. 

You can book your tour of Los Cabos by land or sea with Cabo City Tours, Wild Cabo Tours, and various other reputable organizations. 

Why should you go to Los Cabos during National Hispanic-Latino Heritage Month? 

Visiting Los Cabos in September as a tourist means that you get to join the party as one of the locals in celebrating Mexican history and culture. 

By vacationing in Los Cabos this month, you can hear live mariachi music and join in dance parties at your hotel or in the streets.  

You can also head to restaurants near your accommodations and treat your tastebuds to the best of the local cuisine, including dishes like pozole, chili en nogada (poblano chili stuffed with picadillo) with rice, esquites, and so much more.

Other Reasons Why Los Cabos is a Popular Fall Destination 

Also, by going to Los Cabos during the fall months, you’ll experience and enjoy lower temperatures, which are more conducive to some of the outdoor activities the popular vacation destination is known for. 

With slightly fewer travelers than in the summer months, going to Los Cabos anytime from September through November will also allow you to enjoy local festivities without dealing with crushing crowds. 

You might even get lucky and be able to see baby sea turtles hatch on one of the beaches.

Before September ends, you should book your next trip to Los Cabos and take part in the never-ending fun that is National Hispanic-Latino Heritage Month.
