Los Cabos Travel Tips
Foodie Dream: Flora Farm
You could spend a whole week in Cabo and never dine at the same place twice. But the place we’re most excited about is Flora Farm’s and Flora’s Field Kitchen. It’s an off-the-beaten-beach-path mecca for homemade cuisine from farm fresh ingredients. Everything, we mean, everything is fresh. For instance, the bread. Jose the baker arrives at 4 a.m. to make Pain L’ancienne baguette, sourdough and focaccia, to name a few. You can enjoy drinks al fresco on a magical patio, an urban-meets-country-structure, that has a killer view of the field surrounding Flora Farms. You can sip on everything from traditional cocktails, wine and beer to a full-range of fruit and vegetable-infused specialty libations. We recommend the heirloom carrot Farmarita, their spin on the traditional Margarita, and the Farm Julep made with fresh watermelon juice. Gourmands, prime your palates because you’re in for serious grub.
Epic Outing: El Arco
Located on the southernmost tip of Baja, this awe-inspiring, majestic rock formation known as Land’s End is the most famous landmark in Cabo, (aside from Cabo Wabo, for all you party people). There are numerous boats that will take you out to this iconic, beautifully roughhewn spot - some even offer tequila tastings on the way over. When you arrive, you can explore Lover’s Beach (a Cabo must-see) and then, not surprisingly, Divorce Beach. If you’re an experienced diver, you’ve hit a gold mine. The seabed offers a spectacle like no other - the waterfalls of sand in the underwater canyon. The stunning coral colonies. The large variety of sparkly, multicolored fish. Other fun things you can do here are snorkel and swim. You might even see some sea lions. Pirates once hid in these craggy rocks, but once you arrive we know you’ll find your treasure.
Beatle Mangia: Gordo Lele's Tacos
For a one-of-a-kind taco stand, you’ve got to stop by Gordo’s. He’s not only the cook, he’s the crooner who will belt out Beatles songs (and there are many) while he’s grilling up your meal. Outside, the building is rather non-descript, but once you pass the threshold, get ready to sink your teeth into delicious shrimp tacos that are packed full of fresh, jumbo shrimp, homemade sauce and fresh veggies, along with taste bud-slaying tortas. All at super cheap prices. If you come at lunch, be sure to get here right at noon so you can grab a seat. This place fills up fast.
Swing By: World-Class Golfing
A golfer’s paradise, Cabo has numerous courses crafted by some of the best designers in the world. Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort boasts a heavenly course situated just steps away from the championship-caliber Puerto Los Cabos golf course. It’s a unique 18-hole experience consisting of nine holes designed by Jack Nicklaus and nine holes designed by Greg Norman – with ocean views that will blow your mind. A few other courses of note are Ocean Course at Cabo del Sol, Quivira Golf Club and Dunes Course at Diamante Cabo San Lucas. When you tee off, you can take in the magnificent mountains, fresh air, and of course, the cocktails that help you hit that hole in one.
