Swap Your Snow Boots for Swimsuits and Head South to Spend the Holidays in Paradise
While the rest of the country bundled up for a brutal winter season, south-of-the-border cities enjoy 70-degree days and a salty breeze. So trade your skis for sandals this winter, and vamos a Cabo for the holidays! Situated between the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Hilton Los Cabos is a stunning six-story property that offers access to the best of both worlds. Guests of this Cabo resort can expect a fall and winter filled with holiday festivities, signature culinary experiences, and, of course, plenty of sun-drenched days along the Sea of Cortez. Here are five reasons you should stay at sea level this season and plan a holiday escape to Hilton Los Cabos.
If you’re itching to get away sooner as opposed to later, Hilton Los Cabos has plenty in store for fall travelers. On Nov. 2, the resort is set to host a traditional Día de Muertos celebration with Catrin and Catrina face painting, traditional dishes including the famed Pan de Muertos, live music by a mariachi trio and an uplifting celebration to honor the lives of ancestors. For turkey day, guests can enjoy a scenic alfresco dinner at the resort’s Enclave Beach Club, which sits adjacent to one of Cabo’s only swimmable beaches. This dinner will feature live music and traditional Thanksgiving specialties, and each guest over 21 will receive a welcome cocktail. Leave the cooking to the pros—this elevated celebration is guaranteed to be festive and grand.
Winter and Holiday Activations
‘Tis the season for a Cabo escape! There may be more palm trees than pine trees in this vibrant Mexican city, but Hilton Los Cabos knows how to bring the holiday magic. This year’s winter festivities will include gingerbread house decorating, themed wellness experiences, agave spirit tastings, holiday-inspired cooking classes and more! Santa will also arrive at the hotel in style, with plenty of chances for photo ops and meet-and-greets. The hotel will also serve a traditional Christmas dinner, where Executive Chef Mauricio Lopez and his culinary team will use the bounty of the region to recreate familiar dishes. If you plan on not only ending your year in Cabo, but also kicking off 2024 here, you’ll want to attend the New Year’s Eve beach party and dinner with interactive food stations, live entertainment and fireworks!
A Change of Scenery
The coastal gloom of California can take its toll in the winter months, so if you’re in need of a dose of vitamin D, there’s no place like Cabo. Hilton Los Cabos sits perfectly between the towns of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. So when you decide to venture off-property, you can enjoy the sparkling marina of Cabo San Lucas and the art galleries, local cuisine and rich history of San Jose del Cabo. For those who prefer to stay put, Hilton Los Cabos boasts an abundance of on-site amenities and activities, including infinity-edge pools, cliffside cabanas, outdoor fire pits, soft, sandy beaches and more.
Guests can even witness turtle hatchings on the resort’s beach, which take place from late July to early November!
