Head South for the Winter and Enjoy the San José Jazz Weekend in Los Cabos, Cuvée-Style
Every year in mid-February, a crowd gathers for two days in the Plaza del Pescador of San José del Cabo. Over 5,000 locals and visitors come to mingle and make themselves merry in the family-friendly atmosphere. This highlight of the Winter season continues to grow into it’s sixth year, as people from all over North America come to take advantage of the long President’s Day weekend.
Enjoy the talents of local, national, and international artists, performing their favorite pieces over Friday and Saturday. And while music is certainly the main draw, the highlight everyone talks about is the community feeling of coming together, both tourists and natives, to celebrate and socialize. The event is free and takes place in the afternoons from 5:00 to 10:00 pm on Friday and Saturday.
As the afternoon turns to evening, a parade of jazz groups is followed by soloists, playing every instrument from the guitar to the saxophone and the bass to the drums. Jazz Funk, Rhythm and Blues, and Contemporary Jazz all get their time in the spotlight, as well as European Jazz, Latin Jazz, and and Traditional Jazz Groove. The talented mix of musicians and singers featured on the central stage will bring you to your feet over and over again. Don’t be surprised if you’re swept into the crowd for an impromptu dance party!
And the artists showcased aren’t just musicians. Paintings, ceramics, jewelry and more have a space in the open-air market, as creators exhibit their works in a festival atmosphere. The many restaurants and bars around the Plaza get into the “groove” as well, bringing their tables and chairs into the street and serving a mix of local and international cuisine.
For the best dining option with kids, try El Fish & Grill to introduce them to ceviche while you enjoy the fresh-caught yellow fin tuna steak and sashimi. Continuing the party atmosphere, you’ll also love the small plate dishes and live mambo and salsa played at the Jazz Tapas Bar. If you’re feeling adventurous, but want a guaranteed good meal, stop in at La Forchetta for some creative and beautifully presented Italian fusion dishes and a great wine bar.
Activity and excursion options during February in San Jose del Cabo vary widely. Family-friendly water activities could include swimming with dolphins or a whale watching trip.
