Our beach villa, El Colibri, is perched along the beautiful Shipwrecks break which is known as one of the best, off the beaten path, surfing beaches in Mexico. With so much activity around your vacation getaway, you’ll want to have some local cuisine that fills you up and satisfies those Mexican cravings. Hit the beach bars with fish tacos, beers and margaritas one day while enjoying organic farm to table cuisine on other days. There are countless eateries to choose from, but we’ll offer you our top picks so that you’re ready to go when you arrive.
For Those Picnic Affairs
As you arrive in Baja California Sur, you might automatically think of restaurants to frequent. However, taking a long, picnic lunch is a more unique experience. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, there are organic markets that pop up in Zacatitos and San Jose Del Cabo, respectively. Both of these locations are only 10-20 minutes away from your villa rental. Pick up artisan items that are made right here in Los Cabos. Fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy products and breads will excite your senses.
Flora Farms and the French Riviera Bakery are also well-known names in the area. With artisan sausage and cooking classes available, Flora Farms attracts many tourists out of a great respect for the foods offered by the business. If you’re craving some homemade bread, the French Riviera Bakery in Historic San Jose can cure your hunger with both savory and sweet selections.
It’s your vacation getaway, and you simply don’t want to cook at all. The Los Cabos area has your solution with three, top-billed eateries that welcome the casual diner. Gaze upon the Sea of Cortez and yacht-filled marina as you visit The Container. If you travel past El Encanto, you must stop in at Buzzards. Walk into a beach bar that’s welcoming to every visitor. Both food and drinks are available at this establishment. Heading out of town towards the famous surf breaks, a stop at Zac’s Bar and Grill has become a local pastime – cold local draught beer, delicious frothy Margaritas and Taco Tuesdays are what make this place the hub of Zacatitos!
Mexico is greatly influenced by European settlers of the past, and that fact is apparent at the Crossroads restaurant. Head north from your beach villa for about 20 minutes. Vidasoul is where you’ll find Crossroads and its fusion fare. Chefs mix Italian and Mexican foods together to enjoy in a low-key, funky setting.
Elegant Evenings in Mexico
Stop by the Marriott where the Cafe Des Artistes has become a popular destination. Your dinner will be prepared by a top-rated chef, or you can simply head over to the bar for a relaxing drink. Because the weather is usually warm in the evenings, try one of the newest hotspots at Acre. This restaurant is entirely open to the elements as you gaze up at the stars. Tropical plants waft in the breezes as you enjoy everything Los Cabos has to offer you.
When you’re craving local foods, Flora Farms continues to excite visitors. Pair their grilled pork chop with greens found in their nearby field. Chefs cook up familiar foods with a twist. It’s difficult to skip this restaurant during your trip. Be certain to make reservations early!
It’s nearly impossible to go hungry when you’re traveling around the San Jose Del Cabo or East Cape regions. Try out a local delicacy, and you’ll probably be surprised by the richness of the flavors. As you stay at El Colibri, you’re welcome to contact us if you have any questions about the local eateries. We’ll point you in the right direction.
