14 Best things to do in Cabo in January

This chilled-out Mexican beach destination sits at the bottom of the Baja California Peninsula. Thanks to its southern location, it enjoys much warmer winter weather than most of the U.S. and Canada.

If you’re at all confused about the difference between Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, just remember that Los Cabos (often called just “Cabo”) is the whole resort area. 

Whale watching

Humpback whales are the ones most commonly sighted. But there’s a chance of seeing blue, sperm and gray whales too.

Enjoying the beach

Cabo can be action-packed in January if you want it to be. And most resorts in Cabo with a swimmable beach are on Medano Beach.

Swimming with whale sharks

If there’s just one thing you do when in Cabo San Lucas in January, make it snorkeling with whale sharks. They’re the largest fish in the ocean.


January is the perfect month to go ziplining. You won’t be wiping sweat from your brow like you will if visiting Cabo in the summer months or shoulder seasons.
