Travelers around the world are planning their winter escapes to warmer climates and sunnier settings. Lucky for us, we rarely have to worry about the weather. Cabo San Lucas provides the ideal getaway for travelers seeking a break from the cold, dark days of winter. Sandy beaches, endless sunshine, and turquoise waters are just a few of the things to look forward to here. Read on to discover our six most compelling reasons why you should consider a Los Cabos vacation this winter.



In many parts of the world, winter brings snow, cold, and ice, but not in Los Cabos. Our tropical climate ensures steady forecasts year round, with the average daily temperature in December between the low 80s and mid 70s (27-21°C). Not only is it warm, but precipitation is uncommonly low — in fact, Los Cabos averages 360 sunny days per year. Even better, the close proximity of the waters of both the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez mean humidity stays low.


The winter season in Los Cabos brings with it a whole host of amazing things to do, both within our resort and in the surrounding areas. Hikers will find some amazing terrain to explore in the area. The holidays are a time of fantastic festivals and lively cultural events. Golfers will discover some world-class courses nearby, as well. Within the resort, we offer a wide range of curated experiences, such as paddleboarding, yoga, nature exploration trips, and even wildlife encounters. Whatever your interests, our concierge can suggest — and arrange — something unforgettable.


Enjoying the picturesque waters next to our resort is always a great way to get the most out of your visit. The winter months represent a particularly excellent opportunity for these escapades. Fishing enthusiasts will find our winter waters full of available catches. December and January are the ideal times to set your hook for marlin of all varieties, while yellowfin and dorado are also plentiful. Whale-watching expeditions depart from our shores on a regular basis, as do sightseeing sailing trips. And since our waters stay comparatively warm no matter what the calendar says, surfing and diving are also popular.


Los Cabos is a gourmet’s paradise at all times of the year, but the winter months are perhaps the best time to enjoy the local fare. While many areas of the world have trouble getting fresh seafood due to colder weather, that’s not the case here. Our own El Farallon is the finest restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, offering pier-to-plate delicacies of countless varieties and preparations, all caught fresh locally. The menu also changes daily at Don Manuel’s, where Chef Gustavo Pinet uses locally sourced ingredients to create culinary magic. You’re also always welcome to grab a bite at The Beach Club or enjoy some stellar ceviche with an ocean view at Crudo. Your palate will enjoy your escape just as much as you do here.


We used to think that “winter blues” were a result of chillier temperatures and cabin-fever-style isolation. And while there’s no arguing that being cold and cooped up can have an effect on your mood, we also now know that those earlier sunsets are a big part of the problem, too. Our bodies need vitamin D, and there’s no better source than the sun. So if you feel yourself being bogged down by the darkness sneaking in by mid-afternoon, there’s no better remedy than escaping to one of the sunniest spots on Earth. Think of how much better you’ll feel watching that sunset from a beach chair overlooking the Pacific.


Because we understand that enjoying a winter break in one of the loveliest places our planet has to offer can be deeply therapeutic, Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal has some incredible offers to help make your decision to experience some time with us this time of year an incredibly easy one. There’s never a bad time to visit, but our winter packages are truly second-to-none. Feel free to take a look at our extraordinary specials and start dreaming of your getaway. Then, when you’re ready to create some extraordinary lifetime memories, book your stay and prepare to live unforgettable.
