With winter temperatures regularly in the high 70s, it’s no surprise that December, January and February are among the most popular times to visit Los Cabos. As a lot of visitors head south at this time of year, flights to Cabo San Lucas can be a little more expensive and hotels often fill up fast. Luckily, if you know where to look, finding a great deal on your flight to Cabo should still be easy.
If you want to top up your tan but avoid the crowds, book your Cabo San Lucas Flights for May or June. Beaches, hotels and attractions will be quieter at this time of year and with the temperatures hovering around the mid 80s, you’re pretty much guaranteed beach weather.
There are a number of tricks and tools you can use to find cheap flights to Cabo using Orbitz.
If your dates aren’t yet set in stone, check the ‘My Dates Are Flexible’ box - located just beneath the ‘Departure’ box - before you click ‘Search’ to see prices for flights on other days.
If you’re flying from a big city like LAX to Cabo San Lucas, make sure you select ‘All Airports’ when filling in your departure details. This will ensure you’re shown journey options from all of the airports in the local area.
Narrow down your flight options further using the filters on the left-hand side of the page and use the menu at the top right of the results to sort journey options by duration, price or departure time.
The main air hub in the region is Los Cabos International Airport. One of the busiest airports in Mexico, it offers a good choice of daily direct services to cities across the US. Once you get off your flight to Cabo you can continue your journey using the shared airport shuttle bus or one of the official taxis at the terminal. If you’re travelling to Cabo San Lucas, your journey will take between one and two hours depending on traffic.
A number of airlines connect Los Cabos with destinations across the US.
The easiest way to get around Los Cabos is by car. Hiring a car will allow you to get off the beaten path, explore lesser-known parts of the peninsula and visit a selection of the region’s spectacular beaches. Hire cars are available from Los Cabos International Airport.
If you’d rather not drive during your holiday, you can get around fairly easily using local taxis. Taxis can be found in all of the main resort areas in the region and short journeys between local destinations are fairly cheap. If you want to hire a car for a day or travel a little further afield, you’ll need to agree a rate with your taxi driver before you set off.
Limited bus services are available in Los Cabos. A few buses connect Cabo San Lucas with the international airport and some also serve hotels and beaches in the local area.
The most famous sight in Los Cabos is the spectacular El Arco, a natural rock formation at the peninsula’s southern most point. Part of the Three Friars, it’s where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez and is a must-see for anyone travelling to the region. Take a glass-bottomed boat out onto the water for great views of El Arco and the surrounding area.
If you enjoyed your day on the water, why not make the most of your new-found sea legs and book a whale watching trip? Whales often pass right by the tip of the Baja Peninsula, giving visitors the chance to glimpse these enormous creatures close up. If you’d rather stay on dry land, grab a pair of binoculars, head to the nearest beach and keep your eyes peeled.
US passport holders don’t need a visa to travel to Mexico. Tourists can stay in Mexico for up to 180 days.
Most tourists visit Cabo San Lucas as an excuse to get away from cold weather. January and February are when the so-called “cold” temperatures roll in, dropping down into the 80s during the day and a cool 50 degrees at night. Try your best to stay warm. But winter also happens to coincide with prime whale-watching season, which peaks between December and March. March is also the start of spring break, so be wary of an influx of college students and binge drinking.
Held every October, the Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Jackpot Tournament is the world’s richest fishing competition and offers daily million-dollar prizes to the teams that can catch the heaviest fish. If you don’t want to pony up the $5,000 entry fee, the excitement down at the dock is free and lasts for the duration of the three-day event.
Redemption comes in the shoulder month of June in the form of the annual Stars & Stripes Fishing, Golf, and Music Festival. The feel-good tournament takes place over four days, with proceeds benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters. The cheaper hotel rates are another reason to feel good.
