Cabo San Lucas is a popular destination all year round due to its beautiful weather, sandy beaches, crazy nightlife, numerous activities and party atmosphere. January is a great month to visit; even while the sun is still out, the temperatures are a little cooler and it makes spending the day outdoors more bearable. From racing in the desert to taking a dip in the Sea of Cortez, there is something for everyone to do and see.
Golf a Jack Nicklaus Course
A lot of people don't realize that Cabo has some amazing courses to play for the golf and outdoors enthusiast. One of the newest courses, the Puerto Los Cabos, was designed by Jack Nicklaus and is made for the championship level golfer, although lesser swings can always try their hand at it. The golf course is just one element of a master planned community. It's great for a day of fresh air and competitions in a relaxed setting.

Go off-road racing in an authentic Chenowth racecar. You drive around a 1,500-acre private property, racing the wide open Baja terrain like a pro. It's an adrenaline-filled adventure that allows you to take things at your own pace. You can ride along or dare to take on a tough course with sharp turns and insane jumps. Either way the thrill of racing in the Mexican desert will be an experience you will never forget.

Cabo has some beautiful water, and while the temperatures may be a bit cooler in January, the water is a perfect 70 degrees, allowing you to decide whether you need a full dive suit. Advanced divers can try the 90-foot dive documented by Jacques Cousteau known as Sandfalls. It starts at Pelican Rock then drops to 1,200 feet. Less experienced divers can still see some magnificent wonders diving Neptune's Finger or the shallows of Pelican Rock.
From late December to late March, gray whales migrate into the Sea of Cortes. January is the perfect time to see them, as they are certain to be there putting on a show jumping in and out of the water. You can sometimes view them from the shore at Land's End, but if you want some degree of certainty, you can book a whale watching excursion and have a guided boat tour highlighting these magnificent creatures in their natural environment.
Cruise the Sea of Cortes
Take a boat ride on the Sea of Cortes. Spend an evening watching the sun set at Land's End and get a close-up look at the famous El Arco point. Take some photos of the sea lion colony and then sit back and enjoy a cocktail as the boat drifts along the shoreline showcasing old lighthouses, beaches and more.
