Cabo San Lucas during Thanksgiving

Hi, we are thinking of going to Cabo during the long Thanksgiving weekend (Wed. before Thanksgiving to that next Monday).

We LOVED Cabo, and want to go back, but we were there over Labor Day weekend, and it was not too crowded and the weather was great. Fishing was phenomenal as well.

Can anyone shed light on this? We stayed at the Hilton Los Cabos and loved it as well, but are afraid it might be too crowded then.

Thanks!

We stayed at Las Ventanas al Paraiso Thanksgiving '01: best Thanksgiving dinner ever.

Hi mikemo, thanks, but do you consider that Cabo was overly crowded during that time?

b,
Quite a while ago, but other than the jetsetters arriving on Wed, not really.
We had our fishing booked earlier.
Los Cabos is certainly the most expensive area in Mexico.

Back in the bad old days when I had a job we went to Cabo over T-giving several times to fish, trying to squeeze in extra trips using holidays instead of vacation time. It's much more crowded than Labor Day (which is the height of the hurricane season) but not THAT bad, not like Christmas week.

Fishing can be very good or not so good, depending on the water temps. The problem is that Nov is a shoulder month between the warm-water of summer and fall (dorado, blue marlin and sailfish) and the colder water of winter and spring (mainly striped marlin, which really turn on most years around mid-Dec).

So you may get the last of the blue marlin season or the start of the striped marlin season, or something in between. This year looks like an El Nino year so a reasonable guess is the stripers will be late, but there's usually something going on and we've always caught billfish of some kind on every Cabo trip. I remember one early Dec catching many wahoo too, if you want to bring back a really choice eating fish.

Bottom line is it's more crowded than Labor Day but the weather is much nicer, and the fishing is shoulder-season, so harder to predict.
