This coastal gem has become a beloved destination for expatriates from all around the world, offering a remarkable blend of tradition and vibrant local culture.

THANKSGIVING: A WARM WELCOME TO LOS CABOS

Thanksgiving, a cherished holiday in the United States and Canada, is a time for gratitude and family gatherings. For expats in Los Cabos, this special day takes on an added layer of significance. Many local restaurants offer traditional Thanksgiving meals, so those who call Los Cabos home can experience the comforting taste of a roast turkey and all the trimmings. These gatherings aren’t just for Americans and Canadians; they’re an opportunity for expats from all backgrounds to come together and celebrate unity and gratitude.

CHRISTMAS: BLENDING LOCAL CULTURE WITH TRADITION

Christmas in Los Cabos is an enchanting affair that combines the magic of the holiday season with the vibrant spirit of the local culture. One of the most beloved Mexican Christmas traditions is Las Posadas, a reenactment of Mary and Joseph’s search for a place to stay. Expat children, as well as their parents, enjoy participating in these lively processions, which are usually accompanied by piñatas, music, and treats.

Expats also bring their own Christmas traditions to Los Cabos. Many residents decorate their homes with festive lights, and some even create their own winter wonderlands. It’s not uncommon to see Christmas trees adorned with ornaments collected from around the world, reflecting the diverse backgrounds of the expat community. While expats celebrate in their own unique ways, the warmth of the local culture infuses the holiday season with a sense of shared joy and unity.

WELCOMING NEW YEAR’S: A CABO-STYLE CELEBRATION

New Year’s Eve in Cabo is an event not to be missed. The celebration typically involves a festive dinner with friends and family, followed by fireworks, music, and dancing. On Medano Beach and throughout the town, parties continue into the early hours, creating an electric atmosphere that’s both local and international. Expat residents can often be found leading the revelry, celebrating the year that was and welcoming the year to come.

GROWING UP WITH THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

One of the most remarkable aspects of being an expat in Los Cabos during the holidays is the opportunity for children to grow up with a deep appreciation of different cultures and traditions. Expat kids are immersed in the local culture while still celebrating the holidays of their home country. This unique blend of traditions fosters open-mindedness, cultural awareness, and a lifelong love of exploring new experiences.
