Hit the town

If you’re looking for a holiday with a vibrant nightlife in 2019, Los Cabos will not let you down. Whether your definition of a night out is dancing in a nightclub or a laid-back dinner, there are various, suitable options in the greater Los Cabos area. For those who prefer the high-energy club environment, the downtown region of Cabo San Lucas has some of the liveliest bars and clubs in all of Mexico such as El Squid Roe, Cabo Wabo, Pink Kitty, and Mandala Los Cabos. If that’s the scene for you, you may also enjoy Omnia, the famous day club closer to the San Jose del Cabo side. Other less lively options include the rooftop at The Cape (famed for its views), mescal tasting and tacos at La Lupita, award winning cocktails at La Revoluicion, and if you’re looking for a family-friendly way to enjoy the evening, check out the San Jose del Cabo Art Walk, happening every Thursday from November to June.
