A Yes, both Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo are both safe for tourists to explore and enjoy their Los Cabos vacation peacefully. Typically, the only dangers people are in are from too much fun in the sun.
A No, Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo are two cities that make up Los Cabos. They do share a coastline, but are 20-minutes apart and bring two very different atmospheres to the table. Cabo San Lucas is known for a more vibrant party scene, while San José del Cabo tends to be more laid back. Grand Velas Los Cabos happens to be right in the middle of both.
A May and June, just before the hurricane season, are the perfect months for beach adventures and watersports, including kayaking, snorkeling, diving and parasailing. From December to March, travelers can catch migrating whales off the Cabo coast, including humpbacks, grays and the majestic blue whale. Late summer and early fall see sport fisherman from all over flock to the area for a chance to catch Dorados, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish and Striped Marlin.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is located in the Mountain Standard Time (GMT -7) time zone just like Denver, CO. It is one hour ahead of California's Pacific Standard Time, and two hours ahead of New York's Eastern Standard Time Zone.


Cabo's Sonoro Gulf Coast Desert climate sees sun year-round. Winter months from December through March average in the mid 70's, while the summer months, June through September, can get just above 100 degrees. Pack accordingly and don't forget floppy hats, sunglasses, and sunblock. Evenings cool off significantly due to less humidity. Hurricane season runs from June through November, with August through October having typically the strongest winds. The spring months, March through May, bring comfortable warm breezes and 80-degree temperatures.

December is a great time to visit Los Cabos, with beautiful sunny weather, and whales arriving after migrating to the surrounding waters from the Bering Sea and it is also a great time to hit Cabo's world-class beaches, with the warm desert climate providing temps in the mid 70s and 80s.
