35-49 year old male
Hi there, as you have already noticed I am based at the Mexican Caribbean a beautifull place full of color and life, wonderfull landscapes, beaches and the extraordinary blue caribbean sea, such a paradise... I was born in Mexico City , i used to live in downtown, pretty close to the place in wich the archaeologist Eduardo Matos Moctezuma, found the ruins of the Main Temple of the Aztec Civilization. I am a Story Teller, i always knew it, and when someone listen to my words i feel so glad, because i can bring back to the life the magic of the aztecs, the mayas, the ancient cities that grew up in the middle of the jungle, and i can stil hear the roar of the jaguar, the song of the quetzal and i give a new dimention to the motives of the heroes that created our country and left a legacy that now we call History.

A great way to start the day, tuck into some breakfast on the patio under the trees here, so that you're refreshed and refueled for your tour of San Jose del Cabo! You'll discover great décor, great atmosphere, and great food — great everything!
Next stop is Palmilla Beach — it's a must! You can choose to do some light sports such as snorkeling, paddling, or even kayaking here. Although it's a public beach, it's very calm, quiet, and peaceful.
After that relaxing moment at Palmilla, coming to Desertica will spice things up! You can try the different zip-lines, go kayaking through the water, and hike the trails your tour guide will show you to discover some precious and wonderful views. Throughout the park you'll find plenty of sweet spots to photograph, trust me.
Once you enter Flora's, you'll understand the concept. Organic and delicious meals are served indoors or outdoors in lovely surroundings, so you and your loved ones can spend a nice time indulging yourselves with all the treats the kitchen has prepared for you. Price and quality are very reasonable and the service is attentive from beginning to end, a must!
Both big kids and small will love sharing this great moment together on your trip to Cabo. Depending on what you choose, you'll get to swim and play with the dolphins, or even go out on a boat for some whale watching, if it's the right season. Either way, it's a great opportunity to bond and learn more about the marine diversity of Cabo.
Another beauty and landmark of San José is the church. A great place to sit down and meditate (while there are no services being given), or walk around to admire the mosaics and architectural details. It might be a short visit but one that you'll treasure deeply.
And finally, Casianos is the best way to end day one. You'll experience a very spontaneous and surprising menu here - every night the chef's creations vary (depending on what's in season), and as there's no written menu, you'll simply enjoy whatever dishes come to your table! The service is excellent and the quality of the preparation is terrific.
At the beginning of day two, why not think about having a a late breakfast? Stop in at Las Cazuelas and taste each and every one of their 'cazuelas' (cooking pots), filled with the best traditional Mexican cuisine in town! The staff will make you feel at home the moment you walk in — you just can't miss this gorgeous place!
After such a filling start to the day, we're heading straight into a full day of shopping, and the first stop is Plaza Mijares, where lots of different artisans and shops sell all types of hand-crafted objects. From clothing and jewelry to paintings and sculptures, you'll be impressed by the number and range of items on offer here.
Necri is truly a masterpiece from top to bottom. As it offers all sorts of pieces that come form different parts of Mexico, you'll have the opportunity to find top quality items here, all of which are handmade using the traditional materials from each region. You'll find 'talavera' (pottery), black clay, pewter, and much more — everything that you can imagine is here at this shop!
When visiting Los Tamarindos, you have two options... After doing the tour around the farm, you can choose to have a nice cooking lesson — where you'll ultimately get to indulge in the food you've created — or just take a seat and enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by professionals, and accompanied by gorgeous views of the lush natural surroundings. No matter what you choose, you'll find great service, great times, and some of the most impressive meals you'll have in Cabo.
When walking around the streets of San José, you'll find this beautiful gallery. A calm space where you can see spectacular impressionists' works. Take your time when admiring these beauties, and selecting which original or print you'd like to purchase. There's no rush, just enjoy and appreciate each painting and the message behind the colors that lie on the canvas.
Another great way to end the night is to visit this bistro. Villa Valentina offers a delicious menu paired with their own wines — or you can choose to visit them for a wine tasting event, which is beautifully presented to you in the courtyard by the welcoming staff.
This is another great spot and the best way to start your last day in this beautiful destination. Coming to Cuervo's will leave you with a full tummy and a big smile, all thanks to the cozy service and gorgeous food that will arrive at your table, plus the great cocktails and drinks available. It might not look like much from the outside, but trust me, this place is a true gem!
Set off for Costa Azul, where you'll have the beach all to yourself! The waves are great for a swim or a surf — or you can just lay down on the sand to get a nice tan, before taking a walk down the beach to seek out your next spot.
While strolling around the sanctuary and estuary, you'll see the damage from recent natural disasters, from which the place is still recovering. But this doesn't take away from the natural beauty that is characteristic of this sanctuary, which you can enjoy as you do some hiking or birdwatching.
After spending some time surrounded by nature, go to Meson to grab some appetizers and a mojito to refuel before the final part of your day The service is great — they are friendly and super attentive — and all I can say about the kitchen is that the food and presentation are incredible!
Leaving the mojitos behind, next take a walk around the main square where you'll find the Señor de los 'elotes' — a vendor who rides a specially-fitted tricycle containing a huge basket of boiled corn on the cobs (elotes). It is a must to try them, although be careful as sometimes they can be a little too spicy! There are numerous different shops to browse here too, and whatever you want, you're bound to find it.
Next onto La Forchetta for dinner, where every dish is truly an unforgettable experience. You'll discover fresh pasta, homemade bread, incredible presentation, amazing service, and the greatest Italian cuisine in Cabo — simply the best, from appetizers to desserts!
El Perlado is the best spot to end the night at, and stay until it closes! It's a great place to try a delicious 'mezcal' (traditional Mexican spirit), the atmosphere is really relaxed and fun, and the staff will recommend the best drinks for you if you can't decide. All in all, you'll spend a wonderful time here chatting and laughing!
