Mexico called for its independence from Spain back in 1810 and celebrates Independence Day every year on September 16. Cabo San Lucas is a great destination to become part of the celebration. You'll find events happening over two days, Sept 15-16.
Events start with a reenactment of the "grito"--the cry for independence that ends with the joyful demand "¡Viva México! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México!"--at 11pm on the 15th. The call is followed by towers shooting fireworks, food, and music. There's a parade on the 16th. In Los Cabos, you can find these events in both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.
Take some time to explore Mexican traditions, too, with a sightseeing tour to Cabo San Lucas or the small towns nearby. Of course, tequila is one of Mexico's favorite drinks, so sip a margarita or enjoy a tequila tasting. Indulge in delicious meals featuring Mexican spices applied to the freshest seafood plucked from the waters off Cabo's coast. Discover new levels of serenity with a spa experience inspired by ancient Mayan rites, like the Temazcal ritual.
