NileGuide Expert tip:

Ask a local if Sammy is in town. If he is, make sure you come by Cabo Wabo and try to catch him performing. It makes any vacation exponentially better.


The one place in town everyone has heard of, regardless of whether they've ever been to Cabo San Lucas. This is a local landmark and has been for over twenty years, with great live music, a pumping sound system, good food and drinks, and an occasional appearance by his eminence, Sammy Hagar. Locals are used to getting late night phone calls apprising them of an imminent performance by the former Van Halen frontman. Oh yeah, they have tequila here too. The Cabo Wabo tequilas are all exceptionally good, with the reposado being of particular note. Drinks here aren't cheap by local standards, but they aren't particularly expensive either. Don't expect to be gouged because of the name recognition factor. The cantina menu offers a lot of shrimps and ceviches, with the patio grill menu leaning towards burgers, wings, and chicken fingers. Cabo Wabo packs in the crowds, and is one of those rare watering holes, like Harry's Bar in Venice or Sloppy Joe's in Key West, that became intimately and inextricably associated with a particular place (several Cabo Wabo locations have since opened in the US, but this is the gold standard).
