The best time to visit Cabo is May and June, when the wintertime crowds have gone home and the summertime storms have yet to hit. October and November are also nice months for a vacation, but you’ll need to begin your hotel search early if you want to save money. It could be that your motivation for visiting is not the beach: If you’re into whale-watching, plan to visit between December and March. If you like to fish, look to come in the late summer or fall.
Vacationing now will mean contending with high prices and heavy crowds. The season usually comes with highs in the mid- to high 70s, and toward the end of the season, the mid-80s. Room rates range from $200 to $600 a night at some of the popular resorts. Toward the end of the season, Spring Breakers descend on Baja California, which can make it difficult to find lodging in downtown Cabo. If you’re into whale-watching, this is also the best time for you to take your trip.
