However, each October marks a typical start to the tourist season with a rush of important activities. An Ironman Triathlon will cross Los Cabos transportation this year as well as three major fishing events (Bisbee Los Cabos Offshore and Black and Blue), as well as a series of Sammy Hagar Birthday Bashes at Cabo Wabo Cantina with all-star visitors.
One could say that September is the calm before the seasonal storm of visitors, except that September tends to be the month of actual storms, as Hurricane Newton, which crashed into Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo earlier this week demonstrated.
Since storms and scorching heat have plagued September, it does not imply that it is a bad time to go. As a bonus, the month of September marks Mexico’s most important secular holiday: Mexican Independence Day.

Cinco de Mayo gets a lot of attention in the United States, and it’s a good excuse to go out for tacos and margaritas (as if you needed one). There are many important Mexican celebrations in the United States and Canada. Still, Cinco de Mayo, which commemorates Mexico’s triumph over France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, is not one of them.
Aside from religious festivals such as Christmas and Easter, the most important historical remembrances are El Dia de la Independencia, September 16, and Revolution, on November 20.
Although it’s not the most important holiday, Independence Day is the closest thing we have in the United States to July 4.
El Mes de la Patria (the country’s month) begins on September 15 and ends on September 16. Related activities (known as las fiestas patrias) are held throughout the month. You can even check the details about it by visiting the link below.
Why wait for September 16?
An Aztec priest named Don Miguel Hidalgo uttered the Grito de Dolores in 1810 as a call for Revolution against Spain, ruling the country since Hernan Cortés and his Conquistadors destroyed Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital.
On September 15, Hidalgo issued a call to arms in the small town of Dolores near Guanajuato, and again on September 16, in the small town of Dolores. Finally, on September 28, 1821, the new president (and eventually emperor) of México Agustin de Iturbide proclaimed Mexico’s official Declaration of Independence from Spain, ending the Mexican War of Independence.
In the United States, Mexican Independence Day celebrations usually begin on September 15, with the president and other public figures reenacting a grito and concluding with the phrase Viva México!, a symbolic bell ringing, and a triumphant firework display. On Independence Day, parades are usually the main attraction.
Los Cabos transportation adheres to a set schedule of events that have been around for years. San José del Cabo’s Plaza Mijares and Cabo San Lucas’ Delegación host Grito reenactments each night at 11 p.m. The following morning, around 9 a.m. parades wind along each other city’s main boulevards.
Other Independence Day celebrations, such as food and drink deals at local pubs and restaurants, private parties, and special presentations, will be available to visitors. Some highlights from 2016 include a traditional fiesta at Sheraton’s beautiful Hacienda del Mar property, as well as José Manuel Villalpando’s talk on the myths and realities of Independence Day.
