El Mercado A Mexican Fiesta to Remember

Born with the objective to offer an authentic taste of Mexican traditions to Solmar Hotel & Resorts guests, whilst helping local producers and artisans, El Mercado is sure to become one of your favorite happenings at Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas.

What is this Mexican fiesta about?

El Mercado has been designed to resemble a typical kermesse, with sold tickets exchangeable for goods at some of the many stands found under colorful papel picado streamers that dress up the venue. Other stands accept only cash to benefit local producers directly.

First showcased at Grand Solmar Land’s End, the success of this vibrant fiesta was soon brought to Rancho San Lucas by Rodrigo Gutiérrez, General Director. As he describes it, “At El Mercado, guests are invited to immerse in Mexico’s folklore and culture while admiring the artful pieces crafted by local hands, or indulge in typical delicacies and ancestral distilled liquors to live the spirit of our country.”

Everything at El Mercado is about exploring and feasting your eyes —and palate!— while getting a taste of Mexico.

Culture and gastronomy in one place

Mexico possesses an extraordinary repertoire of cultural expressions, many of which can be enjoyed at this event that is programmed every Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Ask the fortune teller —a cute little, colorful bird— about your destiny; try one of the most popular desserts in Mexico: churros; dance to Mariachi, Ranchero or Latino music; sip from your locally crafted beer and let the starry nights of Cabo take care of the rest.

Dinner under the stars

To complement the experience, Bacari Restaurant extends an invitation to enjoy an extraordinary menu on its terrace, just a few steps from El Mercado, included on your Meal Plan.

We truly hope you enjoy this Mexican Fiesta on your next visit to Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas!

We were all longing for the most special season of the year to take a break from an atypical year, disconnect from it all and reconnect with that we enjoy and cherish the most: our loved ones, the moments that make us smile, fresh air, nature, vacations, friends, new friends, brilliant sunlight, sea… and the list can go on.
Thank you!
