My favorite Insider Tips and places to see in Los Cabos, Mexico.

The first place I take a visitor from out of town is to the Marina and Medano Beach for great food, drinks and music.

When I’m looking for  classic Baja cuisine, I go to Mi Casa.

The  Tikki Bar is a good local Cabo bar.

When I want to hide away, I go to  Santa Maria or Chileno Beach.

If you come to Cabo San Lucas, take  a picture of the iconic rock formation El Arco.

The best thing to order at Restaurant Arts & Sushi is the No Name Roll.

Did you know that Los Cabos is the Marlin Capital of the World?

For a budget meal, I go to Gardenias.

For a huge splurge, I go to Market at One&Only Palmilla or Canto del Mar (Song of the Sea) at Marquis Los Cabos Resort.

Photo opportunities  in Cabo include the Arch, Lover’s Beach, historic San Jose del Cabo and Medano Beach.

The best vantage points are taken by walking to the top of the Pedregal area.

The most random thing about Cabo is the Sabor a Cabo (Flavor’s of Cabo) festival

In Cabo, an active day outdoors involves walking, hiking, horseback riding or scuba diving.

My favorite walking route is the rock next to the arch.

Cabo’s best museum is in Cabo San Lucas, Plaza Amelia Wilkies.

For a night of dancing, go to Cabo Wabo, Nikki Beach, Mandala or Squid Roe.

For late night dining go to Taquiza.

The Los Cabos Gazette will keep you informed on what’s going on a night or on weekends.

You can tell a lot about Cabo from visiting and watching the annual Los Cabos Billfish Tournament event.

In the spring you should attend San Jose del Cabo Organic Market

In the summer you should visit Floras Farm Kitchen.

In the fall you should go see the waterfalls at Santiago.

READ  Half Moon Bay, California Golf Links Ocean Course

In the winter you should go whale watching.

A hidden gem in Cabo is the Art District in San Jose del Cabo.

For a great breakfast treat or espresso, go to the French Riviera Bakery.

Just outside of Cabo you can visit Todos Santos, have lunch at the legendary Hotel California.

The best way to see Cabo is to do a sunset cruise.

If you have kids, you won’t want to miss  swimming with the dolphins at Cabo Dolphins.

  1. Marina K. Villatoro

    I was in Cabos 10 years ago. I remember visiting the Marina, back then, I don’t know if it’s true now, it was considered the most expensive Marina and Yacht club in the world.

    Sooo gorgeous!!!!!!

  2. My favorite thing to do in Cabo is eat guacamole – almost every restaurant has amazing guacamole. On our last trip we did swim with the dolphins and it was an amazing experience for the whole family. My daughter was completely enthralled with our dolphin Ixchel and when we came home we learned all about dolphins and made a display for her to take to show and tell at school. Worth every cent!


  3. Hi, I really enjoyed your blog post on things to do in Los Cabos, what a wonderful read. Thanks for sharing with everyone. I also blog about Mexico – I hope you’ll check it out. Have a great day. Rick

  4. Do you think we’ll need a renter car for the week? Or is there plenty of public transportation available to get to all the beaches and snorkeling places?

  5. Do you know when the next time is that the beach will be visible and able to walk on it at the Arch?
