How to Beat the Crowds
Many travelers enjoy visiting Cabo in December to mark a holiday, take time off with family, and get away from the cold winters. It is indeed a popular time, so planning ahead is a good way to get the best rates and reservations. Make your December trip unique by exploring off the beaten path in nearby area. Go diving in Cabo Pulmo, ride horses in Los Barriles, or ATV through Todos Santos. Visiting these relatively remote areas on a day trip during your vacation can give you a greater appreciation for the area.
