Farm
“Flora Farms - It isn’t easy getting to Flora Farm ($$$$)—way out past the San José del Cabo marina, down a pothole-riddled road, and up a steep dirt lane. But once you arrive, you see what looks like a mirage amid the barren Mexican desert: 10 acres of organic herbs and heirloom vegetables, which Patrick and Gloria Greene have quietly harvested for the past 17 years. The 12-seat fine-dining Flora’s Table restaurant is on the grounds, joining a beer garden and an outdoor bar that hosts live music. Walk-ins are welcome at breakfast and lunch for such dishes as Scotch eggs with herb sausage (the naturally raised pigs come from the Greenes’ ”

“Mango Deck is best known for its never-ending party atmosphere and as a Spring Break oasis. Simply put, if you are looking for a family restaurant, this is not the place you want to stop and eat. But if you want a lively party atmosphere with a lot of activity, Mango Deck is a great option. You can get reasonably priced buckets of beer, margaritas, or just about any other drink known to man. If you need some pre or post-party grub, it features a full restaurant menu with everything from BBQ to burgers to fresh seafood. Price Range: $$-$$$”

Place to shop
$$
“You can either hire a taxi to take you to Costco and pay some extra cash to wait for you while you shop. It's best to negotiate the price before your trip. The concierge can give you tips on how much is a good price to offer for your trip. We like to tack this stop on the way in from the airport to save us the back and forth. You can only do this though if you have a private taxi.”

Island
“Located at the southern end of Cabo San Lucas and sandwiched between Playa del Amor and Playa del Divorcio, these rock formations were created from the rough winds and seas of the southern Baja Peninsula. Sea lions frequent the area (especially along the Los Frailes rock formation), and Land's End remains excellent for couples looking for a romantic spot to see the sunset. ”

Natural Feature
“The picturesque beach of Cabo San Lucas. Sitting right at the end of Land's End, adjacent to the famous El Arco de Cabo (The Arch). To access this beach, you will need to either take a guided tour or rent a kayak, SUP, or other form of water transportation. We highly recommend taking a glass-bottom boat out to this area because it is affordable and an incredible experience. On the Sea of Cortez side of Land's End is referred to as Lover's Beach and just on the other side of Land's End, on the Pacific side, is Divorce Beach. The water is warm, calm, and supplies schools of beautiful and colorful fish. When you make your way over to the Pacific side, snorkeling is not recommended as the water gets pretty choppy and dangerous. ”
