One of my favorite places in the world is Los Cabos, on the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. Two towns, rowdy Cabo San Lucas to the west and quieter San José del Cabo to the east, bookend a 20-mile tourist corridor known as Los Cabos.
Tacos Gardenias in Cabo San Lucas started out serving up traditional Baja style tacos, filled with shrimp or battered fried fish, but as the restaurant became more popular they expanded their menu, adding favorites like cochinita pibil, chicarrones in salsa verde, nopales, chicken and barbacoa.
Flora Farms is an absolutely beautiful, fully functioning, hand tended organic farm in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains in San Jose del Cabo.
It is just a mile from the Sea of Cortez and the Puerto Los Cabos marina and is not far from the exclusive El Dorado Golf and Beach Club. One of my favorite places to visit, The Farm is at the end of a long dirt road that looks as if it leads to nothing and it suddenly opens up to a beautiful sanctuary and gorgeous grounds. Be sure to enjoy a spectacular meal at Flora’s Field Kitchen and savor every bite, knowing that your meal was truly crafted for you.
El Farallon at The Resort at Pedregal is known for their incredible seafood and spectacular cliff side dining experience. As you enter the restaurant, be sure to visit the champagne tasting area. Reservations are essential.
San Jose Art Walk in San Jose del Cabo’s is located right behind the historic main square and church. The ever-growing Gallery District, has become the cultural center of Los Cabos with many high-end fine art galleries displaying original paintings, sculpture, photography, prints and jewelry made by local, throughout mexico and international contemporary artists. Every Thursday evening, November through June, you can enjoy an evening strolling through the Gallery District, visiting the Art Galleries, sipping wine and dining in the fabulous neighborhood restaurants.
El Arco Nature Tour The famous arch is where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific meet and is the distinctive landmark of Cabo San Lucas. Locals say if you come to Los Cabos, but don’t see the arch, it’s like you didn’t really come at all. There are plenty of tours to check out and getting there is easy. (Just hail a water taxi from the marina.) On the Sea of Cortez side, Playa del Amour (Lover’s Beach) at the base of the rock formations is a perfect spot for a leisurely stroll, sunbathing, or snorkeling. However swimming is not advised on the Pacific side’s Playa Divorcio (Divorce Beach) due to rough currents.
Cabo Flyboard is the one of the most popular activities in Cabo. It’s hard to explain, so the easiest thing to do is to simply show you.
Wild Canyon Adventure Park is another experience that is best explained via a video. Zip-lines, bungee jumping, ATV riding, hiking and nature tours.
Armonia Spa at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort is the perfect place to unwind after all those busy activities. This award-winning, full-service spa offers a comprehensive menu of wellness-oriented body treatments, massage therapies, and has a fitness center, beauty salon, his and her locker rooms and wet areas.
