LGBT Scene in Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas has always had plenty of nightlife options, ensuring a debauchery that sets it apart from other resorts in terms of scale and scope. Sammy Hagar even named his tequila after the place, so you know it’s good!

As gays have been attracted away from Cancun and Vallarta to Cabo for the sophisticated beach resort culture and the diversity of activities beyond the nightlife, the nightlife options are gradually increasing to accommodate gay travelers.

The Rainbow Bar is Cabo’s first alternative club, and continues to entertain even after a decade. The Rainbow’s sound is all techno with a disco feel and the delicious Mango Magico Margarita has its own following! Scoop is a gay-welcoming supperclub featuring fusion cuisine and live entertainment. Go-go boys and strip shows are front-and-center at Open Your Mind events, where they take over Passion nightclub for periodic gay nights.

A reminder that when it comes to nightlife in Latin America, things don’t get going until rather late. So take a siesta after sunset, and then head out to the clubs around midnight!
