Sammy Hagar Says ‘I’ve Been Waiting For This Since 1981’ After Becoming The Tourism Ambassador For Los Cabos


The Red Rocker recently announced that he was selected as a tourism ambassador for his all-time favorite place, Los Cabos. He revealed that he has been waiting for this opportunity since 1981.

Aside from being a well-known and accomplished musician, Sammy Hagar is also a successful businessman who owns a few businesses including a club restaurant in Los Cabos, Mexico. He opened the restaurant in 1990 after he fell in love with the area, visiting it for the first time in the early 1980s before he joined Van Halen. He embraced the location like his home and started to spend more time there.

Los Cabos includes two towns, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. It is currently a hot tourism place, especially after Hagar started to promote it often in interviews. His impact on the area’s tourist circulation was big for sure. Hence, they recently honored him by making him a tourism ambassador for the municipality.

He announced the news on Twitter with a video and summarised how he will be celebrating it in the tweet. He stated that he had been waiting for this since 1981 when he first started visiting the place. Hagar also will be celebrating the news on January 5 with a ceremony held at the main plaza in San Jose Del Cabo, and the singer will delight his fans with a concert in his club restaurant.

Here is how he announced the good news:

“Got news that I’m being honored as an ambassador of tourism for Los Cabos, something I’ve been waiting for since 1981! celebrate with me on the 5th — ceremony at noon at the main plaza in San Jose Del Cabo + then we’re gonna throw a concert at the Cabo Wabo, first come first serve!”

Hagar also spent most of his time during the first lockdown in Los Cabos and didn’t think it made sense to go back to his home. The political unrest and the pandemic restrictions drew him further from the city and closer to the seaside. He recommends the area to everyone to experience because it makes him so happy.
