The first month of the year brings with it the coolest Los Cabos Mexico weather, with an average temperature of 54-77°F.

Clear skies are the norm at this time, and the local humpback and grey whales visit the waters, offering an amazing spectacle of their tail-waving jumps and breeches.


As January progresses towards February, the weather remains constant with chillier mornings and evenings. If you plan to dine or spend time on the beach, you might also need a jacket. The water temperature in Cabo San Lucas is the coolest during the winter period, so it's less ideal for scuba diving. Nonetheless, thick wetsuits can help conserve your body heat.


With an average high temperature in the 80s, March is noticeably warmer. However, this also coincides with the whales' departure back to arctic waters. Therefore, if you wish to catch glimpses of these fascinating creatures, March is your last opportunity.


Springtime heralds no rain or storms in the Los Cabos Mexico weather forecast. With the average high hovering around 84°F, it's an ideal vacation period for families and students who want to unwind during spring break before the season gets hot.
