Mexican Violence Cant, or Won't, Touch Cabo San Lucas

Mexico has gotten a bad rap recently, and with the violence wracking the northern borders it's easy to overlook peaceful paradises south of the border, like Cabo San Lucas. If celebrity trends are any indicator of the future, though, this is an image that won't last. Few will want to look past the sunny beaches, margaritas and celebrity appearances in Mexico's under represented tourist hungry south.

Under the thatched roof of open-air Cabo Blue bar, sunburned tourists are pounding margaritas as if there’s no mañana — and it’s barely noon.

At the $500-a-night-and-up Capella Pedregal resort, guests get complimentary afternoon guacamole, chips and Corona beer while they lounge on balconies with private mini-infinity pools overlooking the Pacific and Cabo’s craggy in-water rock formations.

Next door at the less expensive Hotel Finisterra, a salsa teacher with the enthusiasm of a cruise director urges guests to “shake-ee, shake-ee.”
