At the southernmost tip of the 800mile long Baja Peninsula, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, is the tropical paradise of Cabo San Lucas. What was merely a fishing village just twenty years ago, visited occasionally by California surfers and sport fishermen, has grown into one of Mexico’s leading tourist destinations. In recent years Cabo San Lucas has become an expensive international resort and the focus of Los Cabos. Despite all of the development, the town has been kept relatively pristine.
Cabo San Lucas enjoys an average temperature of 80°F and approximately 350 days of sunshine every year. Summer runs from the end of July through September and is generally hot and humid, with the possibility of short storms. Though hurricanes have hit the area, they usually pass safely to the south. When this happens Cabo may suffer rain for a day or two. Winter months bring cooler temperatures, with lows in December averaging 65° to 70°F and daytime highs between 73° and 80°F.
