December 12 marks Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe (Feast of the Virgin of Guadalupe). Religious demonstrations, street festivals, dancing, fireworks, and Masses honor Mexico’s patroness. It is one of Mexico’s most beautiful displays of its traditional Mexican culture. The story goes that the Virgin of Guadalupe, an apparition of the Virgin Mary, appeared to a young man, Juan Diego, in December 1531 on a hill near Mexico City. It’s customary for children to dress up as Juan Diego, wearing mustaches and red bandannas on December 12.
January 1, 2024, Día de Año Nuevo (New Year’s Day). This day is a national holiday in Mexico and is perhaps the quietest day of the year in Cabo. Most people stay home or attend church on the first day of the year. Most businesses are closed. Your best bet is to enjoy a lovely brunch at the many fine hotels in Cabo San Lucas, or San Jose.
