What is the Cabo weather like?

The best time to visit Cabo is during May and June when the weather is perfectly sunny and hot. This is also after the snowbirds have returned to their homes and before the summer tourism season starts up. You’ll save money on tours, hotel rooms, and transportation during this time as well. As it gets in to July and August, Cabo gets extremely hot. If you can deal with the heat, Cabo is also extremely beautiful. Rainy days occur, but for the most part, the weather is ideal. October and November are Cabo’s busiest seasons, so if you want to avoid crowds, visit before then. 

Has Cabo ever broken world records?

Cabo is an excellent place for fishing because of its ginormous, record-breaking fish. From tunas to marlins, there is always the excitement and possibility of catching giant fish.
