Cabo San Lucas or Cabo San Jose?

Beware of the difference between the two extremely different Cabo's. Cabo San Jose is a fantastic taste of Mexico. Undiscovered beaches, delicious traditional food, and real margaritas. Cabo San Lucas is an awful representation of American culture at it's worst... techinically located in Mexico. The food is Americanized, the drinks are watered down, and the atmosphere is a flashback from a bad spring break movie. These two very different Cabos are only a 15 minute drive apart. I highly recommend staying clear of Cabo San Lucas.

Todos Santos: Artist's Get-Away

The drive from Cabo to Todos Santos is full of undiscovered sights. This is a wonderful day trip from Cabo. This small community is full of ex-patriots living and selling art. Galleries full of original art line the streets for an interesting side trip away from the beach atmosphere of Cabo. More interesting are the stops along the way to and from. The Pacific coast of Mexico is full of long stretches of untouched beaches with waves far higher than the inner coast. (However, I hear the waves alternate on season between the Pacific and inner coast.) Also make a stop at the many original Mexican rug stands along the coast. You can find the best deals and variations at these remote shops.

Cabo Pulmo: Scuba Paradise

Driving north of Cabo San Jose is the scuba/snorkeling paradise of Cabo Pulmo. Be careful of the time of year because the winds in January make it near impossible to scuba dive or snorkle. However, in the right season this area hosts quite a few scuba/snorkle agencies with boat and kayak trips to the reefs and beyond.
