Set Aside Plenty of Time for Beach Fun

While those in other parts of the world will be bundling up in hats, mittens, and parkas this time of year, those who make their way to Los Cabos in the wintertime can easily enjoy afternoons on the sand, soaking up the sun instead! Cabo is brimming over with stunning stretches of shoreline to discover whether travelers are hoping to mix and mingle, or they’re searching for a tranquil place to relax and embrace the sound of the waves. Iconic stops like Playa El Medano are great when you don’t mind a crowd and you’re looking forward to a vibrant day on the sand! Destinations like Lover’s Beach and Divorce Beach are exclusively accessible by water taxi or private boat, making it a more exclusive experience on the shoreline. Visitors to Cabo in the winter who are excited to pair their beach fun with time under the waves too will want to be sure to head out to Santa Maria Bay at least once during their stay. It’s easily considered one of the top snorkel spots in the area! While accessing Santa Maria Bay independently is always an option, booking a sail and snorkel catamaran experience adds to the luxury of the excursion even further.

Experience the Best of San Jose Del Cabo While You’re in the Area

While Cabo San Lucas may be admired for its vibrant and modern atmosphere, those with a passion for history, culture, and the arts will want to be sure to take time to explore San Jose Del Cabo as well during their winter getaway. This area is often thought of as the cultural heart of Cabo and offers guests access to a rich gallery district to discover and explore when they drop by. Storefronts across San Jose Del Cabo feature everything from traditional handcrafted Mexican goods to artwork as well. When you’re not exploring local galleries, visitors can watch crafts in the process of being created within the town square. This area also hosts a variety of historical buildings where Spanish colonial and traditional architecture alike are on full display. On Thursday evenings, San Jose Del Cabo keeps its galleries open late between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm and invites guests to make the most of pedestrian-friendly streets as they browse artwork and savor the flavors of the area too. Live music is often part of the lineup, making this an event that’s as entertaining as it is inspiring.

Add Whale Watching to Your Itinerary for Cabo in the Winter

For all of the shoreline fun that winter in Cabo, San Lucas, Mexico offers up, travelers will find there’s just as much inspiration to be found on the water! In fact, this time of year marks the annual migration of both gray whales and humpback whales through the waters that surround Los Cabos. For winter visitors, it’s an opportunity to get up close to amazing creatures when they book whale watching tours led by local naturalists. December and January tend to be prime whale watching moments in this area and there are plenty of eco-friendly tour options that are designed to protect these massive marine creatures as they make their way along predetermined underwater routes. A whale watching tour in the winter is an incredible chance to witness spectacular sights, learn about migration along the way and even have the opportunity to hear whale sons using on board hydrophones on many tours.

Experience Iconic Landmarks for Yourself

Whether you head to Los Cabos each and every winter or it’s your very first visit, a trip to the iconic El Arco is a must! This frequently photographed natural rock formation rising out of the water is captivating up close and accessible to travelers by booking a water taxi. The arch is located between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of California and takes on an even more spectacular glow when you book your water tour for the evening hours around sunset.
