Authorities in Los Cabos recently visited all of the registered bars and restaurants that sell alcohol in the region to verify their permits.
Any businesses found to be operating illegally would be fined or closed down in order to keep tourists safe.
Thankfully, according to their findings, all of the previously certified establishments that sold adult beverages have been able to confirm that their permits are still valid.
That means that tourists can be certain that when they are ordering an alcoholic beverage at a Cabo establishment, the place has the license to be able to sell these types of drinks.
How These Checks On Bars Really Help Tourists
As previously stated, the big win for travelers and locals is that they can be confident when sitting down at a bar that there won’t be a police raid on the place because they’re illegally selling anything.
These particular checks were just meant to ensure that places that advertise alcohol sales have a permit to sell these products, so travelers are still advised to be smart about what they consume.
Bars, restaurants, and other establishments like small supermarkets that have beer and other drinks very much within the customer’s sight are definitely places that pass these checks.
This doesn’t mean, though, that there are no situations in which alcohol is sold illegally in Los Cabos.
Despite the authorities’ best efforts, it could be a good idea to avoid places where this practice could still occur.
Risks Of Buying From Sellers Without A Permit
The biggest risk of buying from sellers without a permit is that these sellers will, in fact, purchase their products from other unregulated third-party sellers.
This process makes it more likely that the beverage that ends up being sold to the customer won’t necessarily be what’s advertised on the can.
With the current findings though, tourists can be sure that all of the popular restaurants and bars within the main tourist areas have their permits in line. This means that certified distributors are likely to provide them with the right adult beverages.
Tourists staying at an Airbnb or other vacation home options that may want to buy drinks for their stay can do so with confidence in places like Walmart and all of the established supermarkets. That’s the best way to ensure they’ll buy the right products.
