Give These Restaurants A Go – Los Cabos
Many people will be traveling south of the border this year for Spring Break in search of beautiful weather, warm beaches, delicious local cuisine, and the endless number of activities to be found. If you are among the throngs of people lucky enough to make your way to Mexico, consider Cabo San Lucas as your destination of choice.
From kayaking to sailing and from horseback riding to ATV tours, there is no shortage of things to do in Cabo. A popular tourist town, Cabo also has a variety of restaurants some authentic local hang outs, some slightly more Americanized dining establishments, but all worth investigating. Allow me to suggest a few that come highly recommended.
If you are looking for Mexican food (certainly a reasonable craving while in Cabo) there are, understandably, a lot of places from which to choose. One such restaurant is the El Coral Mexican Restaurant, the oldest restaurant in Cabo. Established in 1975, El Coral has a tempting mix of delicious seafood and Mexican dishes in a festive setting all for a reasonable price. You may also want to visit Los Desos Mexican Restaurant where you will dine surrounded by fountains, antiques and Mexican sculptures while you enjoy the view of the marina. Another popular choice for scrumptious Mexican food in a traditional Mexican setting is Mi Casa. Located in downtown Cabo San Lucas, Mi Casa has a wide array of Mexican dishes featuring local catches as well as land mammals. Enjoy your food while being serenaded by wandering Mariachis.
If you have had your fill of Mexican food, fear not, Cabo has not forgotten you! Cabo Noodles, for example, offers specialty pastas inspired by several locations around the world as well as gringo friendly sandwiches and salads. Then there’s Loveshack Bar and Grill where you will find delicious burgers and fries for an amazingly low $5 (they also have nachos and tacos if you decide to give in the call of Mexican cuisine afterall). If you are in the mood for seafood and homemade ice cream, check out Maro Shrimp House. Maro’s is run by, yes, you guessed it Maro. Maro used to work at the popular Shrimp House and has taken many of the menu items from that now retired establishment and brought them back to the public who craves them. Maro’s also offers homemade ice cream. ‘Nough said.
If you are in Cabo for Spring Break, a unique option is to check out the Liga MAC Jazz festival where you will find music (guess what kind!), food, and fun all for a good cause. On Sunday March 21st, from 3pm to 8pm, in San Jose del Cabo, help raise money for Liga MAC, a charitable organization made up of Mexican, American, and Canadians dedicated to helping “members of the San Jose del Cabo community” who need a “helping hand”. In short, save some room in your travel budget to explore the many food opportunities Cabo has to offer, you won’t regret it.
