Mexico's right next door, so no wonder you'll find great Cinco de Mayo celebrations in San Diego. It's the perfect time to experience our blend of Mexican and Californian culture, cuisine, and fun.
For Mexi-Cali cuisine and culture, head to Old Town. San Diego's historic center is full of adobe museums, Mexican crafts, and margaritas, tequila, and Mexican food all year round, and it adds to the Mexican flair with Fiesta Old Town Cinco de Mayo from May 5-May 7, 2017. Entertainment includes classic Mexican mariachi bands and the excitement of Mexican lucha libre's masked wrestling matches.
Explore the heart of San Diego's modern Mexican-American neighborhood at Chicano Park, the vibrant community's spirit captured in the colorful murals. On Cinco de Mayo weekend the park will host the Orgullo Festival and Car Show with entertainment and classic cars.
Be sure to try Cali-Baja style Mexican food, which blends contemporary California's emphasis on fresh ingredients with the spices and traditions of Mexico. Nothing beats a fresh fish taco and guacamole beneath the California sun!
Humphreys Half Moon Inn is less than 5 miles from Old Town, so you can experience the best of San Diego's Mexican past in just minutes. You don't have to leave our property to experience the best of San Diego's modern present. Stroll our paths and lounge by the pool, then enjoy drinks and music in our club. We're a great way to blend north-and-south-of-the-border experiences on Cinco de Mayo and around the year.
