Give Yourself the Gift of a Los Cabos Holiday Season

It certainly has been quite the year. So there’s no denying that seeing the sun set on 2020 will represent something of a relief for many reasons. 

That’s why now — more than ever — Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal is committed to putting on an exquisite holiday festival unlike any other in the world. Our annual year-end celebration is always an affair for the ages, but this year we’re going above and beyond. We’re doing everything we can to ensure our gala is so spectacular that our guests will cast off the stress of the year and look forward to a better 2021.

Here’s just some of what’s in store for you during your holiday visit: 


Thanksgiving is always a special time here, and this year we’re offering plenty to be thankful for — including a complimentary night when you stay three). The festivities begin with a lavish cocktail reception featuring hors d’oeuvres, small plates, and a specialty mixology station where you can share a toast with the ones you love. For the feast itself, guest chef Marco Carboni is teaming up with the culinary team at Restaurant Sartoria to add a signature Mexico City touch to the holiday meal. 

Christmas Eve

The season kicks off with a hosted evening cocktail reception at Don Manuel’s on December 24. Adults will enjoy a traditional champagne toast, and there will be candy models for the kids. Expect music, magic, and merriment sure to set a lavishly festive tone for the seasonal celebrations to come. 

Christmas Day 

The big day features a host of yuletide events, including a piñata celebration, live mariachi music and traditional dancers,, plus a magnificent Christmas Day parade featuring an explosion of cultural color and traditional costumes. But what would Christmas be without a visit from Santa? He’ll arrive in a white horse-drawn carriage and will be available for holiday wishes (and souvenir photos) to kids of all ages. 

Latin Night

The celebration doesn’t stop just because Christmas has come and gone — we’re only just getting started. December 26 is Latin Night, which means fresh coconut drinks by the pool, live traditional music, theater-style international dancing exhibitions, a delicious assortment of delectable pan-Latin-inspired dishes served right on the sand, and much more. 

Drive-In Movies

Film buffs will appreciate the festivities planned for December 27. A drive-in style movie night happens under the stars, complete with personal popcorn and cotton-candy service. Kids will have fun creating their own arts-and-crafts “cars” for the event, and an exceptional food-and-beverage service (courtesy of our world-class chefs) will accompany the big-screen magic.  

Mexican Fiesta

Experience the soul of Mexico with us on December 28. Guests will discover a classic Kermes festival at the pool deck — a traditional cultural bazaar-style event that celebrates the rich heritage of Mexico and its people. Live music, dancing, and a brilliantly colorful folk-art exhibition will accompany carnival games and an old-town-feel El Mercadito town-square area.    

Spanish Night

December 29 brings our annual celebration of the spirit of Spain. Fan dancers, ballet artists, and flamenco musicians will present time-honored artistic exhibitions, while jugglers, fire dancers, and other performers thrill with their skill. As evening falls, a Mediterranean feast (featuring charcuterie, paella, tapas, wines, and more) will allow guests to savor the rich flavors of the region.  

Goodbye to 2020

We begin to bid the old year “adios” on December 30 with a focus on wellness. Mexican folk dancers bring rhythm and classic dress to traditional medicine dances. A curandera (tribal healer) will be on-hand to offer ancient, time-tested remedies. Spa treatments are also available throughout day in order to cleanse weary guests of the stresses of the old year.  

New Year’s Eve

Out with the old, and in with the new. New Year’s Eve is always a time of rejuvenation and hope, and Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal is looking forward to helping you emerge anew. Enjoy world-class musicians playing classical and contemporary music live, go-go dancers, aerial artists, and more. Dine in style with special holiday menus at El Farallon and Don Manuel’s. And let the celebrations continue into the night as you ring in the Nuevo Año in style.
