By day, Los Cabos is the picture of peace and relaxation: endless
stretches of turquoise waters, palm trees and gentle breezes. By night,
Los Cabos bursts with energy as locals and visitors alike pour into the
streets and clubs. One thing that everyone can agree on is that the
nightlife here doesn’t disappoint. Whatever your mood, there’s a bar or
club for you.
It seems there are two types of people who come
to Los Cabos: people who love San Jose, and people who are gaga for San
Lucas. The two camps are decidedly different, though both like to have
fun. Those who prefer San Lucas like to party hard, always choosing a
different kind of music or club. They thrive on large crowds and enjoy a
touch of glamour. San Jose aficionados like a more relaxed scene,
sipping a cocktail or beer on a balmy evening in the company of good
friends and family. If they go dancing, they go for pop standards or
mellow reggae and salsa, perhaps with a splash of elegance. So the
question is, which one are you? San Lucas or San Jose?
San Lucas is undoubtedly party central. Home of
the famous Cabo club establishments, San Lucas is where you’ll find the
largest, noisiest crowds on the weekend. At night, the main drag in San
Lucas and around the marina turn into a playground for all kinds of
partiers. Musical selections range from pulsing house, salsa, rock and
pop hits. DJs light up the nights and it’s not uncommon to spot
celebrities partying the night away at glamorous clubs and lounges.
You’ll also find the Spring Break mecca at the bars right along the
world famous Medano Beach. The fun usually begins there during the day,
and continues into the wee hours of the night. In San Lucas, you’re
bound to find something going on, with a tequila shot in hand and the
urge to dance until dawn.
San Jose is decidedly quieter at night, but still
offers great ambiance for merrymakers. There are a number of clubs
playing pop and house music along the zona hotelera, where the major
hotels are. Around the plaza, there are elegant bars and restaurants
that offer great live music, specialty drinks and ambiance to spare.
Live music can be found on the weekends in San Jose, with bands playing
everything from American hits from the 80s and 90s, reggae-salsa fusion
bands, and Spanish guitar. Mariachi trios rove the streets at night,
serenading couples and tables who desire more traditional Mexican music.
San Jose is also much more family friendly than San Lucas, with plenty
of space in the plaza for kids to run around and restaurants with large
tables to accommodate groups. You might not be partying until the wee
hours of the morning, but San Jose has its own mellow, relaxed style.
For those who are in between San Jose and San
Lucas, an often-overlooked place for nightlife is the Corridor along the
Transpeninsular Highway. The hotels and resorts that dot the stretch
of highway connecting San Jose and San Lucas also host parties and
events, and you could find an unexpected surprise waiting for you at one
of their lounges or bars. If nothing else, most of these hotels offer
stunning views of the Sea of Cortez, and it’s worth it to stop in to
have a drink overlooking the ocean. Round up a few of your friends and
make your own unforgettable evening.
Whatever you choose for your evening
entertainment, be sure to party smart. Los Cabos has a 24-hour taxi
service running seven days a week, so you can focus on having fun and
not about the drive home. Cheers, and we hope you discover which Los
Cabos style suits you best when you’re out on the town!
