Los Cabos has an arid desert climate, averaging over 350 days of sunshine a year, unlike the tropical humidity of many other vacation destinations in Mexico.
The weather in Los Cabos is especially hot from August through October, where midday temperatures can reach highs of over 100ºF, cooling down to 75 – 80ºF at night. Winter climates range from a 70ºF average in the daytime to low 60’s at night time. You can expect temperatures to be about 10 degrees cooler on the Sea of Cortez side compared to the more rugged Pacific side.
The best time to visit Los Cabos is from May to June, when the wintertime crowds have mostly left and the summertime storms have yet to begin. However, if you plan to travel to the area specifically for the various things to do in Los Cabos, like the ever-popular whale watching in the area, you should plan to visit during December through March. This is also prime season for whale shark appearances to the local shores. If you like to fish, look to come in the late summer or fall.
Whether scuba diving off the coast, snorkeling amongst the numerous species of colorful sea life, zip lining through the mountainous desert outback, or exploring the many biking and hiking trails, the many Los Cabos activities on offer are definitely never limited by its wonderful year-round, sunny climate.
