How to Enjoy Christmas in Cabo

Escape the cold this winter with a tropical getaway to where the water is warm, the sun is shining, and long stretches of white sand beaches await. Make this Christmas a memorable one by spending it in Cabo, which promises to be a luxurious beach escape! With the holidays just a short time away, don’t delay on planning your journey for Christmas in Cabo.

Enjoy Beach Activities

It may be cold in other parts of the world, but Cabo still sees warm temperatures even in December, which makes it an ideal beach vacation destination. When you journey to Cabo for a Mexico Christmas vacation, you’ll arrive just in time for whale watching season. Passing through Cabo’s waters as they head to their winter breeding grounds, Cabo is an excellent place to enjoy a whale watching tour, which will get you out on the water and up close to these majestic creatures. Humpback whales as well as other species are commonly sighted, so be sure to bring along your camera! In addition to whale watching, the winter season brings good conditions for exciting water sports such as windsurfing and kiteboarding. Or, if you’d rather simply relax and take it easy, Cabo is home to miles of white sand beaches that range from remote and untouched to dotted with cafes and bars where you can enjoy a cocktail with your toes in the sand on your Mexico Christmas vacation.

Plan a Whale Shark Encounter

Whale sharks swim close to the coast of Cabo San Lucas from October to April, so a Christmas trip to Cabo will put you just in time for the peak season of whale shark viewing. Cabo Adventures offers a whale shark encounter, where you can snorkel right alongside these majestic creatures! Not to be confused with the shark species that many humans are afraid of, whale sharks are filter feeding sharks, feeding on plankton. They are known as the gentle giants of the sea, posing no threat to humans. Whale sharks can range in size from 18-33 feet, making snorkeling alongside one of these gentle giants a breathtaking experience to be remembered. After boating to an offshore location where whale sharks are frequently found, your guides with Cabo Adventures will get you comfortable in the water and help you experience the wonder of snorkeling alongside the largest sharks in the world. Keep an eye out for dolphins, rays, tropical fish, and whales along the way!

Explore the Baja California Desert

While Cabo is known as a beach destination, it also juts up against the Baja California Desert, offering an exciting mix of terrain ripe for exploration. Winter months when daytime temperatures are slightly cooler provide a great opportunity for exploring the desert with less intense heat with which to contend. Cabo Adventures offers an ATV Desert Adventure that provides an exciting way to explore the more remote areas surrounding Cabo. Aboard a Polaris ATV with wide open terrain ahead of you, adventures are bound to be had in the desert regions surrounding Cabo. Your local guide will provide insight into the regional culture, geography, and history throughout the excursion, adding an extra element of interest. Not only will participants enjoy the adventure at hand, this tour also features a visit to an EcoFarm as well as a Mexican buffet lunch, beer, mezcal, and tequila tasting. Make your Cabo vacation unique and memorable by adding excursions to your itinerary that go beyond the beach!

Celebrate the Season

There’s no need to miss out on Christmas festivities just because you’ve escaped to a tropical destination! Steeped in Catholic tradition, Cabo and the surrounding towns begin celebrating Christmas well before the day arrives. Residents celebrate Las Posadas for the nine days leading up to Christmas, commemorating the journey of Joseph and Mary to Bethlehem. Candlelit processions, reenactments, and festively lit manger scenes are common. For those who want to attend a church service, the historic church in downtown San Jose del Cabo is an ideal place to do so. The Christmas season in Los Cabos also sees its share of festive drinks available, such as Ponche Navideño (Christmas punch) and Rompope, Cabo’s answer to eggnog. Festivities are in the air throughout the Christmas season, even in this beach town!
