Domestic tourism continues to experience significant growth in Los Cabos. During the first half of the year, the region’s Tourism Trust (FITURCA) reported through its Tourism Observatory a 17-18% increase in domestic tourist arrivals compared to 2022.

Rodrigo Esponda Cascajares, director of FITURCA, highlighted the significant economic contribution that domestic visitors bring to the destination. The average expenditure per domestic tourist is around 7,000 pesos. Furthermore, this segment is experiencing such pronounced growth that it is expected that, for the first time in history, the number of Mexican tourists will surpass international visitors. September could mark a milestone, becoming the first month in the history of the municipality in which the arrival of national tourists exceeds that of foreigners.

FITURCA pointed out that the increase in domestic tourism is due to the fact that Los Cabos already has connectivity with 14 domestic destinations, with the airports of Guadalajara, Monterrey, Mexico City and Tijuana standing out as the ones that bring the most tourism to the destination.

Another reason why September is the historical month with the highest number of arrivals of domestic tourists is that this month is the low season for international visitor arrivals.

By the year 2023, FITURCA projects to surpass the figure of 4 million visitors to Los Cabos. An average occupancy rate of 75% is estimated, accompanied by an average rate of US$570 per night. This rate is positioned as the highest in comparison with other destinations in Mexico.
