Example of Micro-Climates Los Cabos

According to the infamously inaccurate Wikipedia, which is funny that I am referencing it and wunderground as I’ve been increasingly more aggravated with their weather forecasts since they were bought out … Los Cabos is a municipality (I think we all knew that) that consists of two cities and a stretch of highway, beaches and resorts in between.

We’ve got 1,448.24 sq miles in Los Cabos and just going on heat alone, is an example of how different each city truly is.  I won’t go into the touristy or day to day differences, just the weather in two images as I’ve mentioned micro-climates in the past.

Both “official” weather stations are at the airports.  In Cabo San Lucas, there is a little private airport 4.5 miles inland (I’d link their website but it’s down for maintenance) so here’s a link to it on a map if you are interested https://www.google.com/maps/dir/”/cabo+san+lucas+airport/@22.9460188,-110.0063045,12z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m8!4m7!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x86af49fafbfbe6ab:0x42155b74d8b80698!2m2!1d-109.9362641!2d22.9460342  and we all know where San Jose’s airport is for commercial flights. I think. Do we? I think we do …

Regardless, we can get an idea of what we might face worst case scenario heat wise.

San Jose’s almanac has more info than Cabo San Lucas

June SJ 2017 F



I’ll never forget dropping someone off at the airport in San Jose and it was raining so hard I couldn’t see if there was a car in front of me, nor the shoulder on the toll road but I did have headlights right up on my bum … scary.  Anywhoo … Cabo San Lucas was CLEAR and SUNNY.  We’ve also had horrible rain in Cabo but nada in San Jose.


That’s it.  It’s all I’ve got for today.  Maybe we can check back with wunderground and see how they did for the first few days of next month because the last few days they’ve been off by more than 5 degree F
