In contrast to nearby Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo has a pretty tame nightlife scene. Options are limited to restaurants and local bars. Several of the larger hotels along the beach have Mexican fiestas and other weekly theme nights that include a buffet, drinks, live music, and entertainment. Those looking for lively action should head to Tropicana . This longstanding bar offers American sports events on plasma TVs. Live mariachi music plays nightly until about 9 p.m., when it switches over to live Mexican and Cuban dance music. If you want to take the party outside, try the Iguana Bar & Grill. This open-air bar and restaurant is set under a thatched roof with a patio under the stars. Live music and dancing go on Friday and Saturday nights.
