When to visit
The best time to visit Cabo is May to June (ideal weather!) and October to November (for snorkeling and diving). Whale watching is in winter. Golf is great then too. But any time is a good time to go, depending on what you want to do.
Discover sunny Cabo in October! You’ll enjoy almost-perfect weather in this shoulder season month, fewer crowds and warm water temps perfect for snorkeling and diving. No wonder it’s one of our favorite times to visit Cabo!
What’s Cabo in January like? January is the coolest month. But it’s still warm enough for beaching! Whale watching is terrific in January. Golfing is great too, as it’s less hot and humid than at other times of the year.
