La guia de Cabo de Psaltis

(The Psaltis Guide to Cabo, most recently updated February 2022)

 

This is not "the" ultimate guide to Cabo. We simply want to share our own perspective of this fabulous destination. All information here is our bias. We're listing what we like and hope it helps!

 

Our guide began many years ago and has been continuously updated to keep it current. Cabo San Lucas has morphed into a genuine “destination,” as opposed the cute little fishing town we found on our first visit in 1993. It is both a good and bad. The degree of Americanization has certainly impacted the Mexican “feel” for the town. We had always enjoyed the fact that Cabo, unlike Puerto Vallarta and other big-name Mexican destinations, had maintained its local flavor. Now it is more difficult to find that. Cabo has become far more upscale in its restaurants, shopping and overall feel. There are more cars, more paved roads, more American restaurants, more luxury items and more people than ever, but parts of Cabo will never change. It is sunny, warm and dry, which, for a Washingtonian, is about as good as it gets. There is plenty there for all, even if Cabo is more cosmopolitan. 

 

As meal prices have risen, we have ventured into areas of Cabo that we didn’t know existed. Some of our recommended places are the old “tried and true” spots but we have also found neighborhood eateries where the locals eat. It has been fun, not always delicious, but invariably cheaper than some of the easy-to-reach places in the tourist areas. If you like bargains we’d suggest you shop at the local markets and spend a bit of time making your own meals. Leftovers from huge portions can serve as tomorrow’s lunch.

 

The current version specifically targets places that have more “local” flavor. They have given us more variety and helped our wallets a bit. If you are like us, you may not go on vacation to save money, but it doesn’t hurt to enjoy some local color (and cuisine) for less than $30 for two. This version is an eclectic mix of places, prices and atmospheres. We do our best to be honest and accurate. As with the rest the world, things are always changing in Cabo, so what appears here is true as of February, 2022. 

 

Included are websites for the many places listed. Some restaurants don't have websites, so Trip Advisor, Google Plus or Facebook are included as alternatives. In many cases, the menus are posted as are opinions of other people who have gone, so if you don't get enough information from our thoughts, you have access to opinions and ideas via the Internet.

   

Our expeditions provided exhilarating times. These places are fun and, in our experience, safe (health-wise). Many are located in an area that is a mere 2-3-4 blocks off the main drag, but it feels as if it is 50 miles from the nightclub like atmosphere of the touristy section of Cabo. Some of the places are very basic and speaking Spanish might help. We suggest that you simply meander up and down Jose Morelos Street or Leona Vicario Street (both come off Lazaro Cardenas Street near the Porto Paraiso super mall) and decide for yourself where you might want to eat.  

 

Eating in Cabo

 

You are in for many treats in Cabo and here are the ones we particularly like. There will be many choices, so if you don't follow ours, you'll still do well. Just keep in mind that places come and go. They also blow hot and cold, It is always amazing to us how many restaurants we previously loved have closed and how a given place (can you say "Pancho's?") can be so erratic. We have been in Cabo many times since 1993, and feel that we can save you some time by going to any of the following: 

 

Our TOP RESTAURANTS       (new ones listed in red)

 


CAMPESTRE on Calle Salvatierra      Click here for website
One of our maids recommended this place to us many years ago and it has become the other "must" for us. It has changed quite a bit over the years and its reputation has resulted in many more foreigners eating there, but that hasn't hindered our enjoyment of the place. For me personally, the coconut shrimp are to die for. They are delicious and served on a beautifully sculpted half cantaloupe. We have ordered all over the menu and generally been very pleased with the fish, the enchiladas and many other treats. Mary Ellen feels the flour tortillas there are the best in Cabo. With GPS on our phones now, it's not hard to find and there is no specific address, so either take a taxi (they all know the place) or go via GPS.   Rated-- 5 stars

ALCARAVEA on Ignacio Zarazoga     Click here for website
A friend from Olympia recommended this to us and we were happy to both find an alternative to the many Mexican food places as well as a delightful Italian meal serve with the finest of service. They have a lunch special that includes soup or salad, a choice of one of three entrees, a dessert (petite, but lovely) and a non-alcoholic drink. Dinner is a delight as the atmosphere and the service are first class. If there is a special event (such as Valentine's Day, when we're down here every year) it is essential to make a reservation as the place fills up fast. When we invited  a local friend (who owns his own restaurant) out to dinner and asked where he'd like to go, this was his choice. Quite an accolade from a fellow restaurateur. Rated-- 5 stars

MI CASA on de Cabo San Lucas Street    Click here for Website
This is a very popular place and with good reason. It is a unique setting with shops within the restaurant and several "activities" going on during your meal. There are the ever-present mariachis, there is often a balloon man and now there is a guy with two little birds that will pick out your "fortune" from a small box. The food is quite nice, but I must say that as much as anything, it is the setting. It appears to have been a rather grand home and many of the dining spaces are open-air (no roof). The chiles en nogada is a favorite of ours. You should ask the waiter for an explanation. While the fun things happening add to the overall experience, it can also be too much. You are entitled to say no to the singers and others. Rated-- 4 1/2 stars

MARIA CORONA on 16 de Septiembre Street    Click here for Website
You will want to consider this place if you enjoy demonstrations of some of the cultural
aspect of Mexico. The restaurant itself is worth the trip and the molé chicken is, in my opinion, the best in Cabo. It is hard to beat. The setting is mostly outdoors on a huge patio area (much of which was formerly a parking lot) and there is a stage on which the musicians play and dancers perform traditional dances. I tend to prefer the music to come from a stage rather than at my table, but that is merely my preference. Another plus of this restaurant is that they have no-fee valet parking.  Rated-- 4 1/2 stars

ROMEO Y JULIETA on Blvd. Paseo de la Marina     Click here for Website
Of all the many restaurants we have attended in Cabo, this one may be the one that has changed the most. It was (many years ago) a rather folksy Italian place that mostly had pizzas and other Italian dishes, but it has now turned into a rather upscale place with fine dining, an impressive wine list and some very nice, quiet music played by one individual rather than an entire band. They still have pizzas, but the menu has expanded considerably. We often enjoy the made-at-the-table Caesar salad and likewise have fun watching others order the Mexican coffee, which is also a show unto itself. Rated-- 4 1/2 stars

BAJA CANTINA on the Marina     Click here for Website
Our very first meal in Cabo (in 1993) was eaten here at the Baja Cantina. It hasn't changed all that much, but many things around it have. You will have a great view of the expensive yachts that are moored in the marina and, if it's your thing, there are also televisions available for sports, etc. The food is good and it somehow just seems like a tradition for us. There have been so many restaurants that have come and gone in Cabo that it's always good to know that some have survived the many years since we first came. Rated-- 4 1/2 stars

THE OFFICE on Medano Beach     Click here for website
After years at #1 on our list, I finally feel it's time to downgrade it due to its own success. Reservations are now required to get a seat and if your entire group isn't there on time, they will not seat you. Congratulation to the place for its popularity, but a huge negative for its "business" decision to reject people who were delayed in traffic. It sits right on Medano Beach and the tables are literally in the sand. Breakfasts include fabulous pancakes (with bananas), omelets of all kinds and my favorite-- chilaquiles, which you can get with red or green salsa (or both). There are many vendors walking along the beach trying to sell you everything imaginable, but once you get good as saying "no," life gets better! At night there are many activities, including some "contests," so if you are more in the party mood, dinner would be the better choice. Rated-- 4 stars 

LA LUPITA on the Avenida del Pescador     Click here for Website
A member of one of our volunteer dental teams was directed to this place on the advice of the concierge at a nearby hotel. She (and the group) was impressed, so back we went to try again and it was a quite a find. It cracked our Top Ten after only two meals. The decor is festive, but basic and the menu is varied. They have ceviche and several more traditional Mexican dishes, but the one that caught my eye (and pleased my tongue) was their cheese crust pastor. It uses cheese for the "wrap" rather than tortillas and it gives an amazingly different taste that is unique in my experience. It can be a bit loud. Rated-- 4 stars

TACOS LOS CLAROS on Ignacio Zarazoga
  
Much like Gardenias, this is a simple place with a menu that is primarily fish. We found the tacos there to be better than Gardenias, but the street is rather noisy, which makes the ambience less than ideal. There are no mixed drinks here, either, so if you want to wash your tacos down with a margarita, it won't happen here. They do have beer. It will depend on what your preferences are-- food or ambiance, but you'll enjoy the simplicity at either place,  Rated-- 4 stars

SALVATORE on Zapata Street     Click here for website  

A local told us about this place and recommended the lasagna, which is the special of the night on Wednesday and Friday. We dropped in on Wednesday only to discover the place packed. We made reservations for the next Friday and weren’t disappointed. We ordered the spinach salad, which was easily enough for 3-4 people. The special, we’d been told, comes in large portions, so we ordered a single plate and the two of us could barely make it past the halfway point. The lasagna was tasty and the service was excellent. I’d recommend this to a family, as the price for our meal (as described above) came to $50 with wine. The place is very popular, so get reservations if you are headed there later than 6:00. Note: in 2022 we did not know if the lasagna "special" was on Wednesday and Friday, so you may need to ask.  Rated—4 stars



Our SECOND LEVEL RESTAURANTS



GARDENIAS on Paseo de la Marina     Click here for Website
A local friend mentioned this place as a "very simple" restaurant and our first visit about 10 years ago verified that. Since then, it has expanded its choices much like Romeo y Julieta and now has a full bar, among other things. The tacos are served on a small tortilla with your choice of filling sitting on top. A small tray of optional toppings (cole slaw, guacamole, salsa, etc) is at the table to customize your own meal. There are also molcajetes and other choices available. Considering how simple this place is, I have found it to be universally appealing to the many folks we've taken there. This is not fine dining, but it is fun, easy and affordable. Rated-- 4 stars

GUACAMAYAS on Lazaro Cardenas
   
Among our many recommended restaurants, this one probably has the most unique menu in town. While it is possible to order tacos and enchiladas, the menu here includes vulcanes, sopas and other things that we cannot find in other places. The usual chips and salsa starter is also out the door here-- they serve cucumbers, jalapeños and cooked onions as your starter dish. Frankly it's quite a nice change from the usual the chips, which are so easy to overeat. Rated-- 4 stars

DOÑA GLORIA On Miguel Hidalgo
   Click here for Website
It would be hard to say how delighted we were to find that one of our former favorite spots (Felix) is now back in the dinner business. We wandered in on a night we were hungry and ordered coconut shrimp and short ribs and found both to be excellent. The place was virtually empty, but if people have same experience as we did, it should start filling up soon. The former owner felt that no restaurant could survive as a breakfast and dinner place with the same name, so the well-known "Mama's Royal Cafe" name has stuck for mornings. As we passed it in the morning, the place was quite busy. We are unwilling to give it a Top Ten rating after only one meal, but we'll definitely go back. Rated-- 3 1/2 stars


MARIA JIMINEZ on Calle Narcisio Mendoza   Click here for Trip Advisor
This eatery is owned by a relative of The Office (see above) so that counts for quite a bit. We have been a couple of times and found the food to be traditional, but interesting. The last time we were there, we were surprised to find that credit cards are no longer accepted, so be ready to pay with cash. The other warning is that we had a maricachi singer who was in no way talented and he became a bit aggressive about his "tip" after a less-then-inspiring performance, so once again you should fend him off should this happen to you.
Rated-- 3 1/2 stars
 

CAPTAIN TONY'S on the Marina    Click here for website

There are several little restaurants along the marina and seemingly more and more each year we go. Much like the Baja Cantina (above) Captain Tony's is situated right on the marina so that you can drool over the million-dollar yachts sitting in front of you. A better idea, though, would be to drool over the superb fish tacos they serve. While there are many places in town that serve these up, we feel these are the best. One "catch" (so to speak) is that they are only available at lunch time. Of course there are many other goodies here that will please your palate, so you shouldn't feel overly limited if you head there for dinner.  Rated-- 3 1/2 stars


PANCHO'S on Miguel Hidalgo    Click here for Website
Perhaps no place has had as many ups and downs as Pancho's. It is renowned for having the "most tequilas in the world," but that is hard to believe. It was a regular place for us early on and it has since had good days and bad (like many of us). The breakfasts still appear to be a bargain, but at a trip a couple of years ago, we were shocked by our dinner bill of $80 for a couple of margaritas and two entrees. Still, it's a fun place, but you might want to check prices before entering. Rated-- 3 1/2 stars


LA GOLONDRINA  Paseo del Pescador Street
     
Click here for website

The restaurant is reputedly a former trading post and got its name from the owner who took an annual trip to the mission at San Juan Capistrano. We all know what happens there every year and you will not be surprised to learn that “golondrina” means swallow. The setting of this restaurant is lovely—a grove of trees that have been festively lit with spiraling lights make up much of the garden décor. The menu is posted on a wall next to the open-air kitchen, which affords you a clear view of the chefs, the flames jumping around and the beehive of activity. Two of us ordered the jumbo shrimp dinner for two and we were pleased. All came with four different dipping sauces. Included in the meal were a tostada salad, soup, garlic bread and a choice of potatoes, vegetables or rice. This place is not cheap, but well worth the cost. The setting is marvelous. Rated-- 3 stars


MARISCOS MAZATLAN on Narciso Mendoza on the corner of 20 de Noviembre    Click here for website

Located just off the main street, this is a good restaurant for seafood. It is a bit more expensive than average, but it is also easy to find. As with other seafood places in town, you will find the full gamut of fish, shrimp, etc, and the decor is reminiscent of the "old" Cabo we found back in 1993.  If you are a fish fan, I would recommend this place quite highly. Rated—3 stars

  

LA CASA DE ABUELA on San Lucas   Click here for Yelp                             

You will need to "get out of town" to reach this place. It is a very cute, simple restaurant that is probably family-owned, as the name implies. I have eaten there twice-- once for breakfast and once for dinner and found the prices and quality to both be excellent. We had chilaquiles, coffee, scrambled eggs, tea and some tortillas one morning and I think the bill came to less than US $10. It's not as if I drive all over the place to save a buck or two, but the ambiance of the place was rustic and charming.  Rated—3 stars


                                                                             A Coffee House other than Starbucks


CABO COFFEE COMPANY on Miguel Hidalgo Street     Click here for website

 

Two Americans who want to provide quality espresso and want to support the coffee farmers own this coffee shop. They buy directly from organic coffee growers so that the farmers receive more money themselves. The coffee is very good. If you like mochas, they use Ghirardelli chocolate instead of Hershey's, which we also prefer. They have limited seating and only a few little muffins. I still like this place quite well for my “cuppa” and enjoy the alternative to Starbucks, which has shown up on the main street of town. Rated—3 1/2 stars

 

Other places to eat that we have enjoyed, but just didn’t make it into our Top 20:

 

 CABO WABO on Vicente Guerrero Street     Click here for website

 

This is a "cute" restaurant. Quite a number of the eateries in Cabo try hard to be funny, off-the-wall, unique or whatever adjective you decide is most appropriate. At the Cabo Wabo, they have a number of unusual drinks, food, including breakfast specials. It can be wild at night (we've heard) and is owned by Sammy Hagar. 

 

LAS TRES ISLAS on Revolucion de 1910 Street     Click here for Trip Advisor

 

Highly recommended by several locals, we tried this and found it to have a mixed performance. Eight of us went and four of us liked the food and four did not. The service was spotty, as the waiters did not seem as responsive and we would like, but the place was packed, is a good sign. We will give it another try since we liked it. It is on the periphery of the touristy side of Cabo, which I liked.

 

EL PAISA on Leona Vacario Street/corner of Alikan (one block down from Las Guacamayas)  Click here for Trip Advisor

 

Six of us went there and found it be very, very basic with a limited menu. They do have soups, quesadillas and tacos. Most items have meat. No alcohol is served. The online feedback was nothing short of spectacular, but we found this to be all right. The conspicuous pluses were that you can practice your Spanish and that prices are a bargain. Tacos are served on soft tortillas and have only the meat on it. There is then a help-yourself bar with salsas, cheese, onions, guacamole, etc, to "doctor" your tacos. It is similar to Gardenias.

 

LOS MICHOACANOS  on Leona Vicario Street     Click here for website   

 

This is a carnitas place, which means it has a wide variety of meats, including some that you are better off enjoying without knowing exactly what it is! Some locals, who ordered for us, took us to this place, but I am certain that pointing and asking questions could also work. 

 

 

SAN JOSE DEL CABO

 

The “other” town in the “Los Cabos” title is San Jose del Cabo. For many years it retained its Mexican flavor, but depending on which direction you take into town, you will find that the big hotels and timeshares have made a significant impact. The downtown area very much feels like an old Mexican town with a nice cathedral and many art shops, particularly in the area known as the “artist area.” The heart of that area is Guerrero Street and is well worth you while to take a leisurely stroll thought the many shops that have hand-crafted wares. It is a step up from the more touristy trinkets in the shops in Cabo San Lucas.

 

There are three restaurants in San Jose del Cabo that we feel are sure things for your visit if you plan to eat there:

 

"H" in San Jose del Cabo at Guerrero and Obregon     Click here for Trip Advisor

 

Owned by Luis Herrera (hence, the "H") this is a jewel with an interesting menu and a uniqueness that shot it far up on my scale. Those of you who know me are aware that I claim bragging rights to the best margarita you have ever tasted. When Luis mixed one for me, he explained that it was the "simplest recipe" in the world. Perhaps. I remain convinced that he has a magic ingredient that he is not divulging. This is not your rock-bottom bargain-basement place,  but is worth the price and the visit. The food is exquisitely prepared and has both Italian and French flairs. If you are going on Arts Walk night (every Thursday) be sure to make reservations. Rated- 4 1/2 stars.


FLORA FARM  in San Jose del Cabo  Click here for website

 

If you want a unique experience, you'll want to go to Flora Farm. It is entirely organic and has a restaurant (a bit pricey) as well as cooking classes that are both fun and educational. I would recommend going to the website and reading more about this remarkable place. The history of it is inspiring and attention to detail is remarkable. We have gone to two cooking classes there-- one for chicken tamales and the other for vegetarian tacos. During the class, you will also hand-make salsa and guacamole. The class includes a tour of the farm and after it is finished, you are served the food that you, yourself prepared. You will also receive the recipes for everything you made. The only thing that takes a half star off the rating is getting there. It's a bit far and the final half mile or so is on a rutted, dirt road. Don't let that stop you! Rated—4 1/2 stars


LA PANGA ANTIGUA  in San Jose del Cabo  Click here for website

 

This beautifully appointed restaurant is a part of the Mi Casa family (above) and is worth the trip alone. It is housed in an old hacienda and the entry way is already enough to lure you in. The tables are arranged on a multi-tiered patio giving more of a sense of privacy. The lighting on the bougainvilleas and other plants is inspiring, as is the food itself. We enjoyed a variety of dishes and even though the bill was substantial, we found ourselves not really caring, given the enchanting evening we had enjoyed. It is located in the heart of the old town on Zaragoza Street, almost directly across from the main church in town and a stone’s throw from the main plaza. Rated—4 stars

 

TODOS SANTOS

 

Known for its many art studios and shops, Todos Santos is now a mere 40-45 minute drive from Cabo San Lucas now that the new highway has been completed. The town, while touristy because of it survives from the visitors, is a charming piece of old Mexico. The streets are up an down hills and many remain unpaved. For a delightful day outing, this is a wonderful choice. Shortly before arriving in Todos Santos (from Cabo San Lucas) you will pass Cerritos Beach, which is another potential outing. There, you can sit on the beach, have beers and/or food and watch surfers. Back in Todos Santos, the restaurant we feel is the clear choice is:

 

LOS ADOBES  Click here for website

 

It is a small place and the food is organic, elegant and reasonable. As it that weren’t enough, the restaurant also has a stunningly groomed cactus garden to view while dining or enjoy before or after your meal. We particularly enjoyed the chiles en nogada, a traditional dish prepared without frying anything. There is a wide variety of items on the menu but the ambience alone is worth the visit. Rated—4 ½ stars


 

PLACES NOT TO EAT WHEN IN MEXICO

 

Cabo is being "Americanized" more and more, so that you will find Subway, Dominoes Pizza, Dairy Queen, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other disgusting imports (such as the Hard Rock Cafe) that mar the landscape on Cabo. I feel it's too bad that Cabo has lost part of its character in order to cater to tourists. We avoid these places as much as possible and heartily suggest not going to the places that are available in the U.S. for their processed and predictable food. Instead enjoy the unique places of Cabo. This is the end of the editorial.

 

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Just so you are aware of a couple things that many inexperienced Mexico travelers seem to worry about, here are a couple of “little details” about your time in Cabo:

 

Relaxing-- We mostly go to Cabo to RELAX, so our main recommendation is to enjoy the weather, which is nearly always sunny and clear. 

 

Timeshares-- Unless you are sure you want to buy (or are considering buying) a timeshare, you should avoid the “welcome breakfast," or any other variation on the rip-off theme of cheap cars to rent, $100 gift certificates, free breakfasts, or anything else that requires you attend "a presentation." These people are relentless (and even rude) and will NOT "take only 1 1/2 hours of your time" to tell you about the wonders of timeshare. They will easily suck up 2-3-4 hours of your precious vacation time making you agonize over spending lots of money. Trust us—you are better off avoiding them. When you arrive at the airport, there are two rooms full of these sharks and they will all tell you they are "helping you with a taxi." They are doing that, but will also cajole you into a "presentation." It’s smart to march directly to the booth at the end of the second room (after customs) that is clearly marked "TAXI" and purchase your ticket there. It is not cheap. There are shuttles, but depending on the location of your destination, it might take you quite a while in the shuttle. It drops off other passengers. The shuttle costs $18/person, while a taxi costs an astonishing $80. We are in Cabo to be in Cabo, not to be in a shuttle that is eating up our time for a "mere" $44 savings (for two). Just a thought!

 

The water-- it is ABSOLUTELY FINE to drink the water. I am certain that the locals would not want anyone to get sick from the water, so feel free to drink water everywhere. You will usually see signs at restaurants (or on the menus) that indicate that all water is filtered and that all fruits and vegetables are washed. Most time-shares have filtered water systems so that drinking the water out of the tap, brushing your teeth, etc., are all fine. If you continue to have any worries, you can always purchase bottled water at the markets.

 

Montezuma's revenge-- another myth that cannot seem to die. We have now been to Cabo about 50 times (literally) and experienced only one episode of anything that resembled GI distress. After so many years, it is our opinion that Montezuma probably visits all the Gringos who spend too much time in the sun drinking too much alcohol. This is not scientifically proven, but much like comments above about the water, tourism has become such an enormous industry in Mexico that I am certain all efforts are being made to avoid people getting sick. You should still rinse off any fruits.

 

Theft-- we feel utterly safe in Cabo at all times. We don’t worry about being held up or mugged. With the advent of the “chip” credit cards, it is more difficult to life the card numbers, which has been a problem in the past. Most places bring the portable card machine to your table anyway, so this adds to the sense of safety. More and more people ask us if we “feel safe” in Mexico. We do, absolutely. An article in the Los Cabos magazine in February, 2011 cited some statistics that may help you gain perspective. Based on actual homicide rates, Cabo San Lucas is: 12 times safer than Honolulu, 18 times safer than Miami and a stunning 26 times safer than Orlando. Feeling safer?

 

Money-- You don’t need to convert dollars into pesos before you go—they are readily accepted everywhere, ranging from taxis to street side vendors. Bring some cashUS dollars, largely because you can only pay for a taxi/shuttle/bus from the airport with cash. After that, it is handy to have both one dollar bills and five dollar bills—these are handy for taxis, tipping people or buying little trinkets or gifts. There are also plenty of ATM machines, which mostly dispense US dollars. If you have an international credit card (with a chip) that does not charge you 3% “foreign fee” it is best to pay with that every time you can. Restaurants and stores will typically present your bill both in dollars and pesos and their exchange rate is not as good as the one you get with your credit card. Always pay these bills in pesos, not dollars. It’s a better deal. If you want to include a tip, you can but it needs to be added in before they run your card.

 

Grocery Stores-- there are several and each has advantages. A relatively short taxi ride away is the Chedraui Market, which is a real grocery store with better variety of foods (fruits, vegetables, etc). It has good prices and variety, but requires some effort to get there. Across the street from Chedraui is La Comer. It is big, clean and has the best produce we have seen. Costco is also now in Cabo San Lucas, so if you are looking to buy in bulk, you can do your usual Costco trip in Mexico now. 

 

THINGS TO DO IN CABO

 

There is a multitude of things to do in Cabo. Our favorites are resting and reading books that we have no time for at home. If you are more adventuresome, here are a few things to consider:

 

·      Whale Watching-- Jan-March. various boats go out into the Pacific--- day and evening

·      Parasailing-- generally available from vendors around the Marina or Medano Beach

·      Deep sea fishing-- marlin, dorado, etc.-- nearly all-day events/can be expensive

·      Sunset cruises-- these are party boats with a live, loud band and lots of alcohol.

·      Glass bottom boats/good to see fish, fun for kids

·      Lover's beach-- need to be taken out there by water taxi

·      Waverunners-- readily available

·      ATV's-- for into-the-desert adventure/these are guided tours

·      Snorkeling and scuba-- some of the beaches outside of town are best

·      Golf-- world-class courses; stunning scenery, equally stunning greens fees

·      Horse back riding-- either at the Hotel Melia or Pueblo Bonito/just ask

·      Glass factory-- it was interesting and fun/good for children

·      Shopping- there are many, many little shops all over  Cabo with nothing in particular that is a "must buy" but there is plenty of bargain jewelry, hats and souvenirs

·      Porto Parasio Mall-- the huge mall on the marina is very upscale and interesting just to browse. It  is impressive with lots and lots of granite, fountains, etc.
