“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.

“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: $$-$$$”

Island
“Isla Espíritu Santo consists of two islands near La Paz, about 7 km away from El Cotlenta beach. Excursions are available from La Paz, and often combine swimming with whale sharks, sea lions and a trip to the beaches. Sea kayaking is popular as well. Overnight camping ("Glamping") is available on the islands. Ensenada Grande beach, on Isla Partida, was voted the most beautiful beach in Mexico by The Travel Magazine and one of the top 12 beaches in the world. Isla Espíritu Santo is protected as part of the Área de Protección de Flora y Fauna - Islas del Golfo de California (APFF-IGC). In the 1990s private donors purchased portions of the island and donated it Mexico, ensuring its preservation. It is part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Wildlife includes black jackrabbit, The islands are both uninhabited. Sea kayaking is a popular activity around the island. The surrounding reefs are home to parrotfish, angelfish, trumpetfish, Moorish idols, and rainbow wrasse, while many other species pass nearby including sharks, rays, turtles, dolphins, and even whales. Birds include brown pelicans, great blue herons, snowy egrets, turkey vultures, and hummingbirds. A large sea lion colony resides on Los Islotes, off the north tip of the islands; snorkeling with the females and young is a highlight of many tours.”
