It’s hard to imagine anything more beautiful, refreshing, or inviting than a Christmas enjoyed alongside family and friends in sunny Cabo San Lucas. Whether you’re one for the sand, the waves, or more traditional holiday experiences, you’ll find the best of it all and more when you head this way. The following are just a few of the many reasons to plan your Cabo Christmas vacation this year!
Participate in Las Posadas Celebrations
Christmas time travelers making their way to Cabo San Lucas will be just in time to celebrate Las Posadas. This event lasts for not one, but nine days in total between December 16 and December 24 each year.
Las Posadas commemorates the journey of Mary and Joseph as they traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem. To honor that passage, you’ll likely see candlelit processions throughout Los Cabos each evening as groups make their way towards various house parties that represent arrival at an inn. The largest celebrations are hosted on Christmas Eve and include music, dancing, and delicious feasts as well.
Spend Quality Time on the Sand
When you make time to enjoy a trip to sunny Cabo San Lucas over Christmas, you can confidently leave all thoughts of cold, snow, and plummeting temperatures behind. Instead, these wintery concepts are easy to replace with warm-weather fun in December! There’s absolutely no reason to leave a beach day or two off the list when you plan your Christmas vacation to Cabo San Lucas this year. Visitors can count on enjoyable temperatures that are ideal for digging their toes into the sand.
Whether you’re looking forward to a day of soaking up the sun, building sandcastles with the kids, shelling, or jumping in the waves and snorkeling, basking in the beauty of a beach-focused getaway is easier than ever when Christmas travel plans bring you this way.

Enjoy Whale Watching Experiences
December marks a pinnacle of whale migration season in Los Cabos which makes a Christmas trip to Cabo San Lucas a prime time to hop onboard an exciting whale-watching tour. This unique and endlessly thrilling activity is great for everyone in your traveling crew and puts you well within reach of giant marine mammals that are sure to fascinate. Whales that make their way toward Cabo San Lucas have traveled thousands of miles from frigid arctic waters to feed and give birth to their calves in a warmer setting. A Cabo San Lucas whale-watching tour offers up opportunities to see these fascinating creatures thriving in prime habitats and breaching the surface of the water in impressive style. If you sign up for a tour that’s led by a naturalist or local biologist, you’ll learn even more about the migration patterns of whales and there is typically an option to listen to whale songs below the waves using an onboard hydrophone too.
December is also a great time of year to make the most of spotting stunning whale sharks which are closest to the coastline between October and April. The team at Cabo Adventures provides incredible whale shark encounters for those who are looking to snorkel alongside these mesmerizing marine creatures. While the name can be confusing, whale sharks aren’t dangerous and in fact only eat plankton that they consume through filter feeding. They’re often referred to as the gentle giants of the sea and can grow as large as 33 feet!
