Cabo San Lucas is one of the most breathtaking places you can visit, and it is definitely a favorite spot for millions of tourists each year. It is popular for its beautiful warm beaches with white sand and turquoise water, vibrant nightlife, wide offer of activities and sports, and plenty of sunshine all year long.
However, there is a rainy season in Cabo, and you need to know all the information about it if you plan to visit the city in these months so you are fully prepared.
When is the rainy season in Cabo San Lucas?
Cabo rainy season is between July and October, September being the peak season. If you are planning to visit Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo during these months, there are a couple of things you should know about Cabo weather.
Cabo is the perfect city for vacations because it is sunny all year round and has almost no rain. It has an average of 360 days of sun, and those 5 days of rainfall are mostly in September. The average rainfall is 3.75 inches in total, which is pretty low. Even if you are visiting this month, you won’t experience rain every day.
Cabo San Lucas hurricane season
Another important fact about Cabo weather is that these months are the Pacific hurricane season, especially between August and October. This phenomenon rarely happens in Cabo, but it is something to be aware of before visiting. We recommend checking weather conditions, alerts, and news about tropical disturbances in the area.
A great advantage of visiting during this hurricane season is that you will find fewer tourists, and many perks during your stay, like lower prices for hotel rooms, travel deals, discounts, promotions, and more. Also, if you practice sport fishing, this is the best season for deep-sea fishing.
Don’t forget to check the weather to ensure you will enjoy the perfect Cabo vacation.
Cabo temperatures during the year
Cabo San Lucas has four seasons, but through all seasonal variations, the average temperatures remain comfortable. During the summer months, the average temperature is 90 ºF, and August is the hottest month of the year. If you want to experience the best summer and you don’t mind the high temperatures, this is the perfect month for you.
During the winter and the rainy season, the average temperature is 70 ºF, and at night the minimum temperature that could reach is 65 ºF. We recommend packing a light jacket to use at night since it is windy and it can get chilly. The coolest months are January and February, so if you prefer to experience the winter, these are the best months.
If you are looking for mild temperatures, then you need to visit Cabo San Lucas during spring break or fall. The average temperature is 75 – 80 ºF, so it is very comfortable warm, and has low humidity.
Cabo water temperatures
To enjoy the warm water temperature in Cabo you need to visit between July and early November. You will find the warmest beaches during these months, ideal to practice snorkeling, scuba diving, and other water sports.
However, be aware that the water temperature is fairly warm all year round, including Cabo rainy season, so you don’t need to worry about it.
When is the best time to visit Cabo San Lucas?
Deciding when to come to Cabo San Lucas depends on what do you want to experience here. As we mentioned, if you prefer sunny days, then you should schedule your visit for the summer months. Be aware that this is the most popular season to travel.
If you want to experience colder Los Cabos weather, then we recommend visiting in winter. It is cold enough to bring just a light sweater! So it is comfortable, and you can find lower prices on accommodations and tours.
For any fishing enthusiast, it is best to visit in late summer or fall. You will also find most fishing tournaments during these months. This is the beginning of hurricane season, and even though the city gets only rainstorms, it is best to double-check Cabo weather information.
If you are visiting for a whale-watching tour, then the best time to visit Cabo San Lucas is between mid-December and mid-April. At La Isla Tour we offer whale-watching tours that cruise around the emblematic landmarks of the Sea of Cortez and explore whale habitats.
