Great bar with fabulous entertainment. Fun atmosphere. They have competitions for the crowd. Don't forget to have your friends strung up so you can have a phot with your "catch."

The Giggling Marlin is a must for anyone travelling to Cabo and looking for a fun way to spend a few hours. The staff and service are always great and the entertainment is always amazing. This was our fourth visit and we look forward to...it every time. Easy walk from the marina. We arrived late afternoon and stayed until 11PM. Great time playing name that tune, and the rest of the games that evening. The entertainment host was spectacular and kept everyone laughing and having fun. Special shout out to the bartender Brisa who was so warm and inviting - and kept the cold beers coming.More

Stopped in with friends who told us we "had to come here once". It was late afternoon, so not a party scene. Beers were cold and appetizers (all we ate) tased great. Young adults enjoyed the upside down shots. Great for Insta photos...

The waiters are fun, friendly, attentive and are sure to have you order appetizers after some drinks. The chips and guacamole were so fresh and yummy! Their tequila is smooth and very good according to a tequila connoisseur who was with us. Outside seating and...sports bar atmosphere. For something fun- someone with us hung upside down and took a shot! It's really "a thing" there! Our adult kids enjoyed it!More

Such a fun place, and with fabulous drinks. We got some Nachos and they made fresh salsa for us! Shots while hanging upside down like a Marlin is a must!

Made our way to The Giggling Marlin after hearing about it on all our trips and finally made it over. We did not eat we just drank and partied. We brought beers in but were not drinking them we ordered drinks right away from the...bar. The bartender offered to put our beer in a fridge ( They never brought them back ) and did not remember taking them ( long hair DJ Guy ) Our main issue was the Guy with long hair running the Microphone and dancing etc. He was telling us where the tip jar was after we had tipped him multiple times ( Not even a Server our serve got a generous tip ). He did this on multiple occasions I had to tell him to leave us alone ( loudly ) before he finally did need a remind you we probably had gave him $15.00 already and he was not even our server. I will not be coming here again and I do not recommend you to go either. There is much better places available. This must be the reason why The Giggling Marlin is losing popularity because the bar is cool the DJ is scaring people away though.. This review comes from an honest world traveler and my family and I have been to Cabo 6 times in ten years.More

We had a couple of their Cadillac margaritas (a little before noon but were on vacation) they were great and to top it off our waiter rolled out a cart and made us salsa right there and served it with some warm chips. later that...day after burning through our cash at all the local shops and wanting to take a bike taxi home i popped in and asked if we could buy some shots and get 20 cash back added to the bill the bartender smiled and said of course. My only regret was not getting back there for dinner. Also try getting the ring on the peg or if your very adventurous get hoisted like a marlin.More

Nothing authentically Mexican about the place. Food was OK. Prices were OK. Floor "show" was a bit ribald and embarrassing but each to their own I suppose. Probably a good place to go with a group to get drunk and party to 80's music- if...that's what you're after.More

If you love heat Mexican Style, be sure to stop in for some table side or in our case bar side prepared fresh salsa. Mucho great and goes well with a beer or two. We took a bottle home with us.
