Are you planning on heading to Los Cabos or Punta Mita in the near future? If the answer’s yes, get ready to soak up the tropical sunshine and bathe in the crystal blue sea. Most guests often wonder when is peak and shoulder season in the region, so today we’re dedicating this blog to answering these commonly asked questions

Los Cabos

Typically peak season in Los Cabos is from mid-December until the end of April, as hundreds of thousands of tourists pour into the resort town. As a result, restaurants, bars, airlines, and hotels typically increase their rates to accommodate the influx of foreigners ready for a Mexican adventure. While the downtown area of Los Cabos is typically packed during this time, it’s a great idea to escape the chaos and crowds by staying in your own private villa courtesy of Elegant Mexico! The majority of our luxurious villas are located in the exclusive Palmilla community, which is about a 25-minute drive from the downtown area. This neighborhood is gated and provides top-of-the-line security and privacy to all guests, which often includes celebrities and wealthy CEOs.

The month of May marks the beginning of the shoulder season, which typically lasts for about a month or two until the end of June, which is referred to as low season. During the low season, the daytime temperature can reach an average high of 89 degrees Fahrenheit and continues to rise throughout the summer months.

Punta Mita

Interestingly enough, Punta Mita’s tourist season differs slightly compared to Los Cabos, as it’s not as popular with spring breakers compared to the latter. The city provides a more chilled out vibe, as private beaches and authentic taverns dot the tropical landscape. Peak season typically starts in December and ends in the middle of March, as wealthy individuals plan their winter vacation in the Riviera Nayarit area. Over the last two decades, this region – which includes cities such as Sayulita, Nuevo Vallarta, Bucerias, and Punta Mita – has grown to new heights. The 200-mile coastline has been transformed into the number one resort destination on the Pacific Coast and is quickly becoming a shining beacon in the west coast.

March to June is considered to be shoulder season, which is followed by low season. Similarly to Los Cabos, the number of foreigners typically dwindle during this period until it kicks back up during late autumn.

Many wealthy individuals often book luxury villas in the prestigious El Encanto community, which often hosts superstars and foreign dignitaries. The majority of Elegant Mexico’s properties in the area offer private chef and butler services, meaning guests never have to lift a single finger during their stay! Several properties including Villa Estrella and Villa Luna also offer stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. So pack your bag, grab your passport, and get ready to witness a breathtaking sunset every night of your stay.
