NileGuide Expert tip:
They are famous for their rainbow shots.
Located in the Plaza de los Mariachis, Rips is an open-air bar that is very popular throughout the day, and extremely popular late night. The daytime traffic is helped by the proximity of the bar to Cabo Wabo, as well as numerous nearby shops, making this a great place for husbands to gather while their wives peruse the local wares (or, in the interests of political correctness, vice versa). It is shaded, cool, and a very good place to enjoy a cold beer and indulge in excellent people watching. It doesn't hurt that the beers are cheap. At night, live music is the major draw. Although Rips is generally busy from the moment they open in the morning to the time they close at 3am, the crowds increase in both number and intensity later in the evening. Vibrant rock and roll and the signature rainbow shots make this one of the top nightlife destinations in Los Cabos.
