Traveling to Los Cabos, Mexico during hurricane season is actually a great time to visit because of the fantastic deals to be had. Plus, the odds of a hurricane actually making landfall here in Los Cabos are extremely low. Cabo has had only one major hurricane in the past 20 years and that was Odile back in 2014.

Here are six tips for traveling during hurricane season and can really be helpful during any time of year.

1. When is Hurricane Season?

Hurricane season officially runs from June 1st to November 30th, however peak season starts around late August and lasts through late October. Hurricanes in Los Cabos are very rare due to the dry climate and cooler water temperatures of the Pacific Ocean.

2. Most Hurricanes are Predictable.

Meteorologists say they usually know about a week or more ahead of time when a hurricane is forming and the projected path it’s going to take. On rare occasions, hurricanes will take an unpredicted turn however, when this happens it’s usually within 12-14 hours before the storm – allowing time to leave quickly if need be. These sorts of unexpected turn of events are the exception, not the norm.

3. Purchase Travel Insurance.

In the event that you need to cancel or change your plans at the last minute, protecting your investment with travel insurance is a good idea. There are different types of trip insurance so make sure to read the fine print before purchasing. Many travelers enjoy a greater peace of mind with ‘Cancel for Any Reason’ coverage.

4. Download a Few Weather Apps Before Leaving

One of the simplest ways to monitor the weather once you arrive in Cabo is with a weather app or two on your phone. According to some of the best weather apps are Weather Underground, DarkSky, RainAware, and RadarCast. By bookmarking your location and checking the forecast daily, you can keep an eye on any potential storms and their path. Keep in mind that no good weather app works offline – so if you don’t have a solid connection, they’re not going to be of any good.

5. Bring Cash

If the power goes out you won’t be able to use any of your cards or get money from an ATM. Make sure to have plenty of paper currency on hand.

6. Don’t Check Your Bags.

Carrying on your luggage is always a good rule regardless of when you travel. With canceled or rescheduled flights happening more often during hurricane season, it’s easier for your luggage to get lost in the shuffle.
