Cabo San Lucas: Fun, Food & Relaxation

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (Baja) has absolutely no shortage of fun things to do and great places to eat! It amazes me that even though I visit each spring, my group and I always seem to find a new restaurant, activity, or relaxation spot. Here are a couple of recent finds I’d like to share!

We’ve explored the Sea of Cortez, heading out of the marina many times with happy people onboard, waving and excited for what’s to come, so this time, we decided to book an excursion on the Caborey, a luxurious catamaran with an open upper deck and enclosed lower deck area. The cruise provides an excellent view of “El Arco,” Land’s End, Lover’s Beach, and more. With a couple of different cruise packages available, we chose the Sunset Dinner Cruise from 5 to 10pm. A delicious buffet of fajitas with homemade tortillas, rice, and beans, complete with authentic churros and an open bar, was well worth the price. On the upper deck, you’ll find a live band, where you can dance and enjoy the sights. Dinner, snorkeling, and whale-watching cruises can be booked at

Cabo offers plenty of authentic, fantastic Mexican food, but one of my favorites is Salvatore G’s. A longtime staple of Cabo San Lucas, it is one of the best Italian restaurants in Baja. They have a porketta on the menu, which we’re told is a two-day preparation process for the most flavorful, tender pork you’ve ever had. Accompanied by their house fettuccine Alfredo and asparagus, you’ll think you’re dining in Italy! Lasagna is another delicious specialty that comes in a two-pound serving. We look forward to it on each trip, and most of the enormous portions are easily shared.

If you’re looking for a world-class resort, look no further than the Corazón Cabo. Located in the heart of Medano Beach and an easy walking distance to downtown, it’s a beautiful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the beach area and is an excellent choice for singles or families. Baja Brewing Company, at the top of Corazón, offers one of the best views in Cabo.
