Mexico has always been one of the spring breakers’ favorite destinations.

Thanks to its great weather conditions and paradisiac beaches, it’s difficult to think of a better place where to let go of all the stress accumulated throughout the academic year.

Not by chance, TripAdvisor ranked Los Cabos among the best spring break destinations. But there is an extra reason why Los Cabos may get extra busy this March. 

Why is this Los Cabos spring break going to be extra busy?

This year, spring break and Easter will both take place in March. This means that Mexican families will get time off work in the same period when university students in the USA finally get some time off university. 

Talking about this issue, Lilzi Orcí Fregoso, the Executive President of the Los Cabos Hotel Association, said: “February comes with very good occupancy [rate] (…), and in March we have two important events. (…) The spring break which this year is combined with Easter.”

He later specified that the Los Cabos authorities are preparing for such a busy period by setting up weekly meetings that will be organized to strengthen the security in Los Cabos. 

Extra controls will specifically be carried out in the El Médano area, a place particularly popular among tourists.

“These meetings give us the opportunity to plan how we are going to work to serve this segment and in case there is an incident, see how we can improve,” said Lilzi Orcí Fregoso.

So, what can tourists do to get ready for such a busy period? If you’re planning a trip to Los Cabos either for spring break or Easter, there are a few things you may want to consider. 

First and foremost, it’s important to book everything as soon as possible. While now most hotels still have plenty of rooms available, these are probably going to run out quickly. 

If you want to make sure to get an apartment or suite in your favorite resort, don’t wait till the very last day or you may have to opt for another property.

The same can be said for flights. The sooner you book your plane, the higher the chances of paying a reduced price. 

Last but not least, you may want to reconsider your trip. If you’re heading here simply because you decided to take some time off work during March, you should probably opt for another period. 

This will help you save some bucks and avoid huge masses of tourists at the same time. 

Some great activities to do in Los Cabos in March


If you’re one of the many visitors heading to Los Cabos in March, here are a few activities you should definitely try out. 

Are you a surf enthusiast? March is the perfect time to try to tame the Pacific waves in Los Cabos. With plenty of beaches to choose from, you will be spoiled for choice! 

Of course, there is no spring break without massive parties. If you’re looking for a unique experience, join one of the many party boat cruises offered in the Los Cabos municipality.

These events often last around three hours and give you access to an open bar! This is the ideal place where to meet like-minded people to spend the rest of your Los Cabos vacation with, so consider booking your cruise party at the beginning of your trip.  

Lastly, you may consider the idea of joining a whale-watching tour. These gigantic mammals arrive in Baja California Sur in early December to then leave again in mid-April, meaning this will be your last chance to see these stunning creatures in 2024.

Plenty of tours depart from Los Cabos daily to reach Magdalena Bay and other nearby sports where these gentle giants are often found.
