Named for the village in Gabriel Garcia Márquez's 1967 novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, Macondo is the Cabo San Lucas version of "magical realism." Nothing about it is like other downtown bars, from the Spanish galleon bursting through the front of the building to the backgammon and chess boards scattered around the seating area. It's not even clear what's the best description for the place: café, bookstore, bar or theater? The short answer is that it's all of the above. You can grab an espresso here, buy a local history book or collection of poems, chill out over mojitos, or even watch a staged play or a performance by talented local musicians. Macondo is managed by acclaimed two local writers and cultural figures - poet Vico Caballero and writer and actor Jorge Chávez (AKA El Marlin Rojo) - and their artistic sensibilities have made Macondo the only real literary and bohemian hangout in Cabo San Lucas.
