Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Cantina Birthday Celebration Shows

Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Cantina

The annual event is set to take place, once again, at Sammy Hagar’s own Cabo Wabo Cantina, in Cabo San Lucas. The cantina is considered by many to be one of the top nighttime hot-spots in Los Cabos. The Cabo Wabo Cantina’s stage has featured numerous well known celebrity and musical acts since the tequila bar and music venue first opened in 1990. The term “Cabo Wabo” originated from Sammy Hagar's observation of drunken man stumbling away from a Cabo bar. Sammy pointed out that the man was doing the “Cabo Wobble.”

A birthday party for Sammy Hagar

The biggest party usually takes place on the night of the final performance which coincides with Sammy’s actual birthday.

Getting ready for a trip to Mexico

Lands End at Cabo San LucasBefore heading to Mexico, be certain that you are carrying your passport. Also, be sure to purchase international health insurance coverage for you and your travel companions. Getting to Cabo San Lucas by car requires a trip of over 19 hours, beginning at the international border crossing at San Diego, CA, winding all the way down through Mexico’s scenic Baja peninsula, and finishing at the world famous “Archo” located at “Lands’ End.” Do not forget to purchase Mexico auto insurance for your vehicle, because Mexican law automatically ends all U.S. auto insurance liability coverage at the Mexico/U.S. international border.
