May/June 2021 Out & About
By Justine Schock
Los Cabos has always been a hotspot for exciting nightlife and over the top events. With new safety precautions in place, high season has been in full swing, but some of our favorite events still haven’t returned. With ever changing COVID restrictions and event cancelations and rescheduling, we encourage you visit our website at DestinoLosCabos.com/Cabo-Events/ or our Facebook page @DestinoMagazine for the most up to date event information as new events are released!
As of this printing, live music has returned to many local establishments including Cabo Wabo, Casa Amigos CSL, Jungle Bar, Cabo Blue, Mint Jungle, and others. The Thursday night Art Walk in San José del Cabo and Friday night Viva La Plaza in Cabo San Lucas have both returned as fun and safe outdoor events where you can roam around looking at art, enjoying live music, and have a wonderful dinner any of the nearby restaurants. Outdoor markets are also in full swing this time of year. You can read about some of our favorites at DestinoLosCabos.com/Outdoor-Markets/.

June 23-27 – Stars and Stripes Fishing Tournament
The 24th Annual Stars & Stripes Fishing and Golf Tournament will be held from Wednesday June 23 to Sunday June 27 after a 1 year hiatus due to Covid-19. Their website explains, “The Stars & Stripes beneficiaries receive much-needed financial assistance which they can use to expand their programs. Team registration fees pay for all costs of the event. When you make a donation to Stars & Stripes, proceeds are used to match dollars raised by the beneficiary charities, allowing the money they raise to increase and create more impact.” The always well attended event has raised and donated more than $36 million to worthy youth charities over the course of its 23-year history.
