Baja California Sur: During the summer months, the Sea of Cortez climate is more humid and hotter than the Pacific side; in the winter months, the Pacific side is considerably cooler than the Sea of Cortez. As a result, San José del Cabo and the East Cape have warmer summers, while Cabo San Lucas has cooler and windier winter weather.
