Dancing at El Squid Roe
a long time Cabo favorite
One of the best things about a vacation is staying up late . . . as late as you like. In Los Cabos, the region that includes Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo and the Tourist Corridor, the nightlife is lively, so you may be awake a lot longer than you thought. Here, hedonism and good fun abounds and variety is the name of the game. For those who like to party, Cabo San Lucas has some kind of nightlife entertainment for everyone. A visit to Cabo Wabo Cantina, The Giggling Marlin Bar & Grille, Hard Rock Cafe, and El Squid Roe is a must for your Cabo party vacation. The latest additions to the nightclub scene are Body Shot Night Club in Puerto Paraiso Plaza and Crazy Iguana Restaraurant and Bar in downtown Cabo. More Cabo San Lucas Bars.

Sancho Panza Wine Bistro and Nightclub has live jazz most nights and is a good spot for dancing and great wine after an excellent dinner. Down the road in San Jose del Cabo, the mood may be less rowdy but there's still plenty of good times to be had.

The night starts with sunset and for some, it's the most magical time. While sunsets may be viewed from any number of bars and restaurants in Cabo San Lucas, for die hards, western facing vantage points are a must. Hotel Solmar Suites and Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa all on the Pacific, have casual oceanfront bars with snacks and wandering Mariachis playing lively Mexican tunes. Here, it feels like the edge of the world, as the tangerine sun sizzles into the liquid Pacific.
