What a great place to have some evening fun in Cabo!!!
This trip was the first time bringing my kids (18-21) to this area of Mexico and all of them were anxious for some truly interactive, occasionally a little over-the-top fun. We'd been here several times before as a couple, but adding in a younger generation that I wasn't quite sure would enjoy the same 'fun' we'd had was a risk.
The Giggling Marlin crew did not disappoint! Great MCs, amazing drinks, very reasonable prices, awesome waitstaff.
The 'contests' they do are spectacular. To a point, that after having been there the first night...and visiting a few of the other popular places closer to the marina...every night the kids kept asking to go back.

But maybe not food. :) WE were bopping around the DT area and happened upon the Giggling marlin. Fun spot, loads of people and fun drinks.. A couple guys ordered food and didn't love it - but I was liquids-only. I thought it was fun!

Great for what it is. A fun place to pre-game your night out in Cabo!

They definitely push for a good time and encourage lots of shots, games, and laughs!

Angel was our server and was great fun. He made us some amazing table side salsa with a molcajete. It got our energy up and ready to take on Cabo!

Visit every year and this year was disappointing. We understand with Covid restrictions things will be different but instead of hiring a bouncer they locked the entrance gate when they hit capacity and you had to find someone to unlock it to leave. Also, no A/C. On an up note beer was cold, and waiter was friendly,

We stopped in at the Giggling Marlin for a quick refreshment when walking around Town. Brisa Guevara was the bartender that day. She made the place. She made you feel right at home. Served us drinks and then made some salsa. We had to come back to see her again before we left for home. She had great service, great salsa and was so friendly welcoming each of the guest that came in. Visit Brisa for a feel like you are at home in Mexico stop.

This place was so great, we went back two times and brought the whole family. The best waiter was Angel. Tableside guacamole and salsa was so fresh and delicious. Kids loved the restaurant. Highly recommend. Budget friendly and delicious libations.

Not the business of places, as it used to be, from what I understand. Seems to have fallen a bit out of favour. The beer was cold, the service was all right with chips and salsa left a little to be desired honestly. They do have multiple televisions and a fun lighthearted Decour.

They have a great "hoist" to hang you upside down next to a giant Marlin. Hense the name. If you go at lunch it is not crowded, you can take the kids (I did), it is the only time I would take the kids. They loved to hang upside down and for the small tip it is worth it. Don't buy the picture they will try to sell you. Take your own camera.

When it comes to Cabo, the Giggling Marlin bar is where to go. They are the only place that's maintained it's high fun spirit for 20+ years and is still going strong. There are no coupons for this place- you'll find you don't need a coupon for their reasonable prices on drinks and the evening show is free. Come with a group of friends or with your significant other, but be ready to laugh and have a wonderful time. Take your camera because they may talk you into getting hoisted up by your feet for a shot of the "marlin fisherman" displaying his catch. Be prepared to feel a little weak the next morning, whether it be from the beverages or the laughter- I've never been completely sure.... but be warned, they tape each show (which has a lot of audience participation) so the saying "what happens in Mexico stays in Mexico" does not necessarily apply! You can purchase a copy for $25- and so can your friends!

You can't miss The Giggling Marlin, right on the main drag in Cabo, just across the road from the plaza behind Cabo Wabo. You'll want to go one evening for the show put on by the staff and other patrons (and maybe even you). Depending on who's involved, there will be varying levels of raunchiness and humour, and you'll certainly be laughing quite hard at times.

If you do end up there, make sure you get "hung" like a caught Marlin. Once you're upside down, you'll drink a couple of shots and it makes for a great photo opportunity. Ladies, it's best not to do this if you're wearing a short skirt.

The staff certainly seems like they're having a fun time along with the crowd. I often wonder how they do the same thing night after night after night and still seem so excited.
