Travel Review of Cabo San Lucas

Posted: May. 8th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

From white, sandy beaches and a natural friendliness of the locals to the wonderful food and charming Mexican architecture, choosing to go on a vacation in Cabo San Lucas might just be one of the best decisions of your life.

Los Cabos is on the tip of the state of Baja California Sur—an arid and cactus-filled land, yet fertile due to its peninsular body surrounded by the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. Los Cabos consists of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.

High Points: After leaving behind a snow-blanketed Boston, I heartily welcomed the Cabos sun. The warmth set the stage for my five-day trip. From the friendly people to the spicy food, Los Cabos' warmth was like a welcome mat to Mexico.

My time in San Jose del Cabo was spent meandering about art gallery-filled cobblestoned streets, perusing the town's markets and shops, and visiting the Mega (something like a Costco, and what seems like geared for ex-Pats).
