What is Cabo Like on Cinco de Mayo?

I just realized that me and my husbands trip to the Riu Palace in Cabo falls the week of Cinco de Mayo :).... Is this a GOOD thing or a BAD thing?? We love to party but are curious about how 'crazy' it may get. Anyone have any ideas? Anyone else going to be in Cabo the week of May 2-8?

Thanks in Advance for any advice!!!

We were there on Cinco de Mayo a few years back.....it wasn't that crazy at all....first of all this is the low season before summer hits and second of all I think us Gringos celebrate Cinco de Mayo more than the Mexican people.

It's not celebrated in Mexico at all (apart from locally in Puebla). Some hotels may put on something special for the American tourists but that's about it.

What Steve said.

However, I think Matapule might know of a local town that does something... maybe La Paz?

I've been in Cabo a couple of times and Cinco De Mayo is not even brought up unless your an American looking for another excuse to party. Let me warn you, you don't need another excuse to party in Cabo. Its Cabo, thats all you need. So if your worried about a huge party, don't be, there are plenty of places to go for all types, low key to hard core partying, i'm sure you will find the right place for your tast. enjoy cabo.

My husband and I will be at the Riu Palace at the same time too. We're looking forward to a great trip.
