Where to Catch Live Music in Cabo

Cabo San Lucas is just a two-hour flight from Los Angeles and San Diego, which explains why so many Californians go there for their vacation. There is also the added advantage of stretching your money in Cabo, as one US dollar is equivalent to around 18 Mexican pesos.

But Cabo’s main attractions are its white sand beaches, whale watching, native sea lions, authentic food, and rich culture. It is no surprise as to why an estimated 3.5 million tourists visited Cabo San Lucas in 2019.

If you are looking for entertainment, however, with plenty of booze and bands, then Cabo is the perfect place for you.
