There’s much more to Mexican cuisine than tacos and enchiladas, especially in Los Cabos. Whether you’re tucking into ultra-fresh seafood or sampling spicy stew with an icy margarita, here are the best ways to experience Los Cabos’ food scene.
Food Walking Tours
To get a genuine taste of local flavor, head to downtown Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo for a food-themed walking tour. Sample an array of regional delicacies, craft beers, and street food favorites as you explore the depth and breadth of Cabo’s food scene, walking off the calories along the way. A food tour can be the best way to experience local culture—and it will make your stomach happy, too.
If you give a tourist a taco, you’ll feed them for a day. If you teach a tourist to cook Mexican food, they’re set for life! For visitors to Los Cabos who want a deeper understanding of how the locals live (and eat), a Mexican cooking class is a fantastic place to start. Spend the afternoon shopping at a local market to explore native flavors before learning how to cook some signature Mexican dishes. Then eat the fruits of your labor in the form of a hearty, delicious meal.
Sit-down dining experiences are varied in Los Cabos, but the one thing they have in common is they’re sure to be fun. A dinner out in Los Cabos could include anything from sunset cruises with tequila tastings to a fajita fiesta with live music. Or indulge in a restaurant-hopping culinary adventure by exploring some of the town’s many satisfying restaurants.
