Thinking about Cabo
Many people who are looking for a winter vacation destination, retirement spot or second home are looking to Cabo San Lucas . The reasons for this are bountiful. This is why.
Cabo San Lucas is considered, by many, to have the perfect climate . With over 300 days of sunshine and average temperatures in the low 80′s makes it such that no one ever pays attention to the weather and there aren’t weather forecasts like most places in the World. During summer months, the temperature can reach into the 90s but low humidity and ocean breezes keep things comfortable.
Since Cabo San Lucas is located on the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula the temperatures can vary depending on which side of the peninsula you are at. For example if you are in Cabo San Lucas you tend to be somewhere in the middle of the temperature ranges while on the Pacific you can be up to ten degrees less. Additionally if you are up the Sea of Cortez in the sister city of San Jose del Cabo you can 5-10 degrees more than Cabo San Lucas.
Spring is the driest season with little or no rain from March through June. Winter blends gradually into spring and thus into summer. One of the best times in Cabo can be the months of May and June and first part of July. These months are sometimes known as the Secret Season in Cabo.
The idea of Cabo San Lucas attracts you but there is hesitation because of all the horror stories you are hearing about Mexico . What you are reading about is happening in Cd. Juarez, Tijuana and Nogales. The violence is in the border towns not in the resort areas like Cabo San Lucas. There may be no place safer on earth than Los Cabos.
When you look at the statistics and not the hype you realize that Cabo San Lucas may be truly the place you want to vacation or retire to.
In a recent article published my Christopher Reynolds of the L.A. Times, drug related killings for all of the state Baja California Sur, not just Los Cabos, reached a big 6 for the entire first half of 2010. That figure breaks down to 1.06 per 100,000 inhabitants.
That sounds like a lot, you say. But just compare it to the statistics from the countries considered the safest around the world.
Canada = 1.7 per 100,000
Peru= 3.2 per 100,000
Argentina = 5.2 per 100,000
USA = 5.2 per 100,000
Uruguay = 5.8 per 100,000
Chile = 8.1 per 100,000
And the rest of the world just gets worse.
Yes, Cabo is where you want to talk to Los Cabos Real Estate about guaranteeing your place in this safe environment with the perfect climate.
The door will open on your airplane and you will prepare to descend the steps to the tarmac when you arrive in Los Cabos. You step out the door and stop. The sweet soft air of Cabo engulfs you. Is it the smell of cactus blooming? Is it the lack of any pollution? No matter, you know you have arrived in this paradise we call Los Cabos.
