Electricity in the whole state of Baja California Sur is reliable, which would include La Paz and Los Cabos. However, in the summer when we have thunderstorms or hurricanes you can lose energy or power for hours or even days. Longer outages happen only in the summer and mostly in September.
But from time to time we have power outages. For example, in my little town in the summer when there were storms we had power outages of 10 minutes, maybe 2 or 3 times a week during the summer only.
It’s a good idea to have a generator when it’s hurricane season. In my case, we have one between 2 or 3 houses and we only use it to keep the fridge running or to quickly do repairs. So when there is a hurricane, people gather together in certain areas where we do have power where we eat together and we bring whatever we have so it doesn’t go bad.
