    Giggling Marlin: Hanging upside down

    by sayville Written Aug 31, 2007

    After going on a sunset cruise, the kids (ages 20 and 22) and I stopped at the Giggling Marlin. Both of my kids hung upside down and drank their beer. The workers walk around with jello shots and force it down you and then ask for you to pay for it. We had fun.

    Dress Code: No dress code except you had to have a shirt on.

    *So if you're coming to Cabo,

    The Giggling Marlin is definetely worth a tourist stop by.

    *The bar/nightclub is fun place to come for a drink or meal and enjoy the activities being put on by the staff

    *The staff has a number of fun shows and activities you can participate in or just watch

    *Make sure to get your picture taken out front by the Giggling Marling sign.
    I got mine taken and used it for holiday pictures one year..classic tourist picture!

    *The main tourist thing to do inside is to pay $10-$15 USD and get an opportunity to hang upside down like a marlin on a fish hook.
    You'll get to take down a shot and a souvineer picture!
    Definitely a touristy type activity!

    *For those of you looking to party it down, this places its more crazy later at night after dinner

    Dress Code: *No dress code, anything goes

    Giggling Marlin: Tequila Upside-down

    Hanging with the best of them.

    This place is a lot of fun, the first night. You can't go to cabo and not hang upside down, doing a shot at the Gigglin Marlin. I did it the first night- was hilarious. The place has a show it puts on- pretty cheesy but isn't that what a Mexican vacation is all about?

    Dress Code: anything goes.

    Giggling Marlin: Don't Miss The Floor Show

    The Giggling Marlin is a bar, restaurant and nightclub. Nightly floor shows are always entertaining, and just a little naughty. If you are called on to participate...plan on drinking some (okay a lot) of tequilia! They encourage dancing on the bar, jell-o shots, and all around craziness.

    Dress Code: Very casual

    Giggling Marlin: Tourists live shows...

    The Giggling Marlin...

    In this pub you can learn about the lowest human instincts. The staff here knows very well what to do for making the tourists nuts. They like to come around with Tequila shots and throw them in your mouth without asking. Do not be surprised if they let you pay US$ 8 for it. By paying you can also try an upside down Tequila shot. They hang you with your ankles on a row and pull you up. Nice to see but I do not know the effect next morning :o) If you want to join the shows with them, think about that the most important to show is your body. On this way you have the most chance you have to win, special the woman...

  • Giggling Marlin: Audience Participation At Its Finest

    Giggling Marlin

    When you are in the Giggling Marlin, you frequently hear "What happens in Cabo stays in Cabo". This is a very entertaining place to go. Basically, there is a guy with a mic trying to get random people to act like complete fools by playing games like musical chairs or having lap dance contests, with plenty of tequila involved. Winners get free drinks and other prizes. If you volunteer, you most likely don't know what you are getting yourself into, but enjoy it and laugh with everyone else.The best part is, they get it all on video, so if you choose, you can buy a tape and take it home to show everyone you know.

    They also have salsa dancers, jello shots, and they can hang you upside down like a dead fish to give you a shot of tequila.

    This is good for one night. If you go more than once, the shows start repeating and it can get old (unless you have plenty of alcohol). This is not exactly a good place for kids either, especially when the host constantly tells people "it takes skin to win".

    Dress Code: No dress code.

    Nothing but a good time inside

    This place is definetly for mexico partying. They have great drink specials and lots of good modern music. I think it would have been a little bit better if we were there on Spring Break.

    Dress Code: Very casual sandles, shorts, whatever.
