As September draws near, summer is rapidly coming to an end. Just because summer is ending doesn’t mean you can’t plan any more vacations! In fact, a Cabo fall vacation might be just what you need to relax and unwind from a hectic summer season. Cabo San Lucas is a great place to visit in the fall. September through November fall in between the busy winter season and the summer, when many families vacation during the time off from school. A fall vacation in Cabo allows you to seamlessly extend your summer vacation while also participating in some of the fall festivals, like Day of the Dead.
Extend Your Summer with a Cabo Fall Vacation
The first benefit of taking a trip to Cabo in the fall is that it allows you to extend your summer. Often August can come with a hint of sadness as you prepare for the warm weather and carefree days to fade away. Instead of being sad, book a trip to Cabo in September. Give yourself something to look forward to by planning an autumn trip.
By traveling to Cabo in the fall, you can avoid the busy season and experience a less crowded vacation. In Cabo, the busy season is typically December through April. Visiting Cabo in the winter/early spring allows tourists to escape the cold weather back home. This date range also includes spring break. Cabo is one of the top spring break destinations, with thousands of college kids visiting each year. While summer is not a part of the busy season, it can be pretty crowded as well, with families taking advantage of the time off school to travel. During the fall, the pace in Cabo is a bit slower and can be more enjoyable for travelers looking to relax.
Cabo is home to some of the best sports fishing in the world. The confluence of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez creates the perfect fish breeding environment. The fish are plentiful all year long, but the fall is a great time to fish for a variety of species, including:
- Black Marlin
- Blue Marlin
- Striped Marlin
- Mahi Mahi
- Yellowfin Tuna
Fall fishing in Cabo is open to both beginners and experienced anglers. Cabo Discount Tours provides visitors with deep-sea fishing charters. Hop aboard one of our 28- to 50-foot charter boats equipped with rods, reels, lures, and a captain and crew to guide you on your adventure. We even provide a cooler of beer to keep you hydrated all day long.
Experienced anglers will enjoy visiting Cabo in the fall as well. Two of the biggest fishing tournaments are held in the fall. The Bisbee Black & Blue is in October, and the Western Outdoor News Tuna Jackpot is in November. These tournaments come with significant prize money. In fact, in the Bisbee Black & Blue, the winning team walks away with over $1 million. The Los Cabos Billfish Tournament is another fall deep-sea fishing classic.
Take Part in Festivals
A couple of traditional Mexican holidays occur in the fall. Tourists love being in Cabo to join the cultural events that surround these holidays.
Independence Day is celebrated every year on September 15th at 11:00 PM. The President rings a historic bell in Mexico City, waves the flag, and says, “Mexicanos, Viva Mexico!” Residents sing the National Anthem in celebration. This same ritual occurs across the country with each governor and residents of each state. The next day, there is a parade and ceremony. Independence Day celebrations often include festivals, bullfights, and rodeos.
Day of the Dead is also an important holiday in Mexico. On November 1st and 2nd, there are many celebrations and rituals to commemorate those who have passed away. These rituals include baking sweet bread, decorating cemeteries, and making altars with candles and flowers. Visiting Cabo on the Day of the Dead is a great way to learn about the history of Mexico and immerse yourself in the culture. Be sure that when participating in celebrations and ceremonies, you always remain respectful of the families remembering their lost loved ones.
