“Experience the X-Pat lifestyle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

If you've ever wondered how you can live in Cabo on a budget, then you DO NOT want to miss this place. It's not too hard to find...and makes for a great lunch stop on your way from Cabo to any of the beaches on the corridor.

How can you fail with $1 bottle beer... and really good margaritas? Sure, it's campy, and not very busy at lunch, but I think it's the perfect time for this place cause you can drive thru the trailer park and get a glimpse of how XPats drive their RV's down and set-up home in the desert climate. Each one has a huge palapa.

The food is good, but not great...so don't come with HUGE expectations. It's a very good, quick lunch on the way to the beach. if you've had a little too much to drink and need help getting back to your RV (or vehicle)... you'll get a kick out of their special "taxi". (see photo)

For the record... when in Cabo, i make this one of my stops.

“Funky place with amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Located in the heart of a real trailer park, Vagabundo's Del Mar has great food, great atmosphere and great service. Joe, one of the owners, was their both nights that we visited on our most recent trip. Joe makes you feel welcome and will guide you through the extensive menu. Seating is offered in the restaurant/bar area and around the pool -- we did both on our two visits. The food was great and Joe made both nights evening's to remember. Vagabundos is at the top of our "favorite restaurants" list in Cabo. The daily catch is amazing -- Dorado the first nigh and Mahi Mahi the second -- both were great. The tempura shrimp was also a big hit. Be sure to check out this funky venue on your next visit to Cabo.

“Great place to eat and drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have been going to Vagaboundos for several years, when we are visiting Cabo San Lucas. The food and drinks are always great. Be sure to order a "CaboRicardo" Margarita,, the will knock your socks off. If you go fishing while in Cabo, Vagaboundos will prepare your fresh fish for a great price. And it will be worth eating. Be sure to ask for Peter (the Owner) and say hello. He is a great resource of info, if it is your first trip to Cabo..

“Strong Delicious Margaritas, Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The people here are really nice, but I'd recommend coming only for the margaritas (they are SUPER generous with the alcohol) and not for the food. Ask for your margaritas "skinny" if you don't like it too sweet.

“Great food and service. Interesting place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We decided to try this place based on TripAdvisor ratings. It was everything they said it would be. The shrimp and tortilla soup were outstanding.
