What is your personal favorite thing about visiting Los Cabos?
Lisa: The ease of getting around, the people, the food, the views and the relaxed feeling you get when you’re there
Steve: It's the water – the color of the water is a deep blue and just so beautiful and there are so many activities that involve this beautiful water.
What makes this destination different from other places in Mexico?
Steve: The quality of the accommodations, the many different options of accommodations and the quality of the restaurants and food choices. Also the land – the desert meets the ocean, and it has the best weather. That makes this the best destination within Mexico.
What's one of your favorite Los Cabos villas and why?
Lisa: So hard to choose – so many great ones. It’s a true tie between Villa Cielito and Hacienda Beachfront Villa #7! They are both beautiful villas with amazing views, but most importantly they are beachfront and on swimmable beaches, which is very rare in Cabo.
Steve: Casa Bella at Cabo Colorado is a beautiful, quaint, modern home that is just very special.
What’s different about Cabo San Lucas versus San Jose del Cabo?
Lisa: Cabo San Lucas is more like spring break, with lots of great bars and night clubs, great places to eat and shop – just a place to walk around and have fun. San Jose del Cabo is a bit more laid back with a lot of art shops, antiques and local restaurants. It’s great for anyone looking for a more relaxing getaway.
Do you need a car during a Los Cabos villa stay?
Steve: Yes, but it depends on the type of trip. For example, if you have a girls’ trip and you just want to spend time at the villa and occasionally go out, a car a driver is a better option. But driving is very easy and the roads are very good with good signage.
What local food should I try?
Lisa: EVERYTHING! I even eat fish tacos when I am there and I don’t eat fish!
Steve: Seafood, shrimp and fish tacos, ceviche and sushi. A few restaurant recommendations: Nick-san (for great sushi), Tacos Gardenias, Manta (high-end dining), and my favorite Flora Farm, for farm-to-table fare that is amazing
What is one thing you recommend visitors do or see while here?
Lisa: Eating at the “office” – many places have tables on the beach so you have your feet in the sand and a cold drink in your hand!
Steve: Anything in or on the water, like whale watching. There is also great golf – but I would not miss Flora Farm!
