Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Baja California is a rare destination that offers a great getaway year long. Peak time for travel is when weather is temperate in the low 20ºc range and whale watching opportunities are at their best (late-November to April). This also includes the festive vacation and New Year period. Cool temperatures are ideal for desert adventures and hiking and boating for wildlife viewing and island exploration. Summer (April to September) can be hot and humid but the beaches are less crowded. Summer waters are ideal for snorkeling and diving. Hurricanes are much less common than in the Caribbean, but it is something to be aware of for September and October travel which is considered low season. Baja is blessed with two marine life rich oceans; the Sea of Cortez to the east has a warmer sea temperature than the more exposed than the Pacific Ocean to the west. In the summer the breeze coming from the Pacific is a blessing. For surfing, waves break on the eastern side of the peninsula March to October and on the Pacific west November to March. The most popular summer breaks start in San Jose and extend up to the Eastern Cape making Los Cabos an excellent base. In the winter the best breaks are south of Todos Santos at Cerritos Beach.

When planning your visit, it is worth noting the peninsula's main fiestas. Each March San Jose del Cabo throws an 11-day long Fiesta Patronal with parades and carnival and La Paz holds a similar event. Easter is also a busy time for Mexican's heading to the beach to celebrate Semana Santa and September 16 is Mexican Independence Day.

Insider's View

For the best views of El Arco, opt for one of the corner suites which offer floor to ceiling wraparound windows and truly provide the wow-factor.

The fantastic rooftop bar is a cool spot for an evening cocktail and a bit of celeb-spotting!

I couldn't recommend the corner suites any more strongly - such fantastic value for the best view of El Arco, and the surf break right in front of the hotel.
