Located at the sunny tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, Los Cabos is a world-famous vacation destination known for breathtaking beaches, luxurious accommodations, championship golf courses, and legendary sport fishing. A short flight from many major U.S. cities, Cabo offers warm winter weather and easy accessibility for travelers seeking to escape the cold during the holiday season. Popular area activities include diving in the Sea of Cortez, snorkeling, desert off-road tours, gourmet dining, and legendary nightlife. During the winter months, whale watching is at its peak in Los Cabos as gray and humpback whales begin to make their way to Baja’s warm, tranquil lagoons to give birth.

The holiday season is a favorite time for visitors to Los Cabos, with a wealth of local cultural attractions. Visitors can stroll the charming streets of historic San José del Cabo (located about 18 miles from Cabo San Lucas), lined with quaint boutiques, art galleries and romantic courtyard restaurants. Beautifully decorated for the Christmas season, the town’s picturesque traditional main square is anchored by a lovely old church. Thursday evening art walks in San José are a fantastic way to take in the atmosphere in this lovely town during the winter season. In Cabo San Lucas, the bustling downtown and marina are also decorated for the holidays each year. Travelers can window shop, enjoy a seaside meal or hop aboard a sunset cruise surrounded by the magical sights and sounds of this vibrant destination. New Year’s Eve revelers will find a host of glamorous parties to enjoy at Cabo’s hot nightclubs, many headlined by international entertainers and celebrities. Fireworks ring in the New Year in spectacular style in Cabo San Lucas, with the sparkling light show shimmering above Médano Beach.
