Check out what’s new in Cabo San Lucas, San Jose Del Cabo, and the Tourist Corridor of Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
My first week in Los Cabos.
I’m new to Cabo. I’ve been here for a week. I was asked to write about my impressions of this place. First thought: It’s hot. It’s hard to feel at home when all the clothes you have were bought for a city that only has this kind of weather a few days out of the year. But these are the clothes I have. I went to Médano’s beach this weekend. I was surrounded by rushed relaxation. People doing their best to escape from their routines. Filling every step they took with screams and laughter. Everywhere I look there were people whose only preoccupation was to make the most of their time here. After swimming for a while I decided to leave, the place was too crowded for me, I could see that same feeling in some of the many faces. You just don’t care that much when you are on vacation. I want to explore this place, go hiking, visit different beaches, I may even get paid to do some of that stuff. I hold that thought I’m my head, I’m here to work. I’ve never been a daring person, I’m someone who waits, observes, someone who […]

Date Night at Café Distrito 23Cuatro10
Date Night at Café Distrito 23Cuatro10 In the evening Café Distrito looks like an Italian bistro overrun by a hidden garden. The lighting is coy, it’s bright enough, it’s romantic but functional. Lights hang off the wood slab roofing, spread out like stars, tempered and mellow, evenly spreading about a golden glow as if light were a smoky incense. In the dark leaves seem vibrant, or is it that veiled in mystery they acquire a new presence. A good part of the menu seems to fit this ambiance. Café Distrito takes on a second life. Call me old-fashioned but I wait until sunset before having a cocktail. On Thursdays, Frank Zamora sings Latin contemporary classics accompanied by his guitar, a loop pedal, and a Spanish flair. The cocktail menu is brief, Margarita, Clericot y Carajillo. Carajillo is said to have originated in Cuba. During the time of the Cuban Revolution, Spanish soldiers mixed brandy with coffee to get “corajillo“, meaning courage before battle. Clericot is the Latin name given to Copa clarete, the Spanish name for the wine glass. It’s a play on words. Clericot began as a mix of dry white wine and fruit. Which has given way to […]
Cafe Distrito 23Cuatro10
Café Distrito 23Cuatro10 Coffea Arábica, from chiapas. Soconusco, the southern humid highlands look like mountains of night. The night births new light gloriously, blackened soil, rich blood. From the powerful overwhelming vowels of the earth, as if sprout came from the volcanic seed of the core. Its fruit tells the tale. Soconusco, Chiapas temperatures range between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, it greets about 200 inches of rain per year, a steamy tropical climate, and just the right altitude above sea level come together with the rich nourishing volcanic soil to produce the very best coffee Mexico can yield. If you want good coffee. If you want a good meal. it s Café Distrito 23Cuatro10 you should visit. I was told chilaquiles were the specialty. I said: “really? chilaquiles?” Begrudgingly I ordered the chilaquiles. I’ve never had Chilaquiles this good. A bed of Black beans, House Blue Corn Tortilla chips, the peanut salsa is spicy, but not hot. It adds the taste of lemon to the dish which counteracts the earthy flavor of the blacks beans. Melted cheese on top, I’m not sure what variety of cheese it is but it’s tangy, slightly sour, I would describe it […]

The Best Ramen in Town
The Best Ramen in Town. Aka My Favorite Ramen in Town. Jazmin. Los Cabos Guide says goodbye to one of the most important members on our team. She did a lot of everything, all of the time. I shit you not, it’s a pleasure to work here. And it keeps getting better. She did everything right, and I’m really happy to see her stride proudly on to the next stage in her life. She’s an admirable person, she’s impeccably professional, thoughtful, considerate and anyone lucky enough to work by her side has a lot to learn. My Favorite Ramen is fitting for a Last Meal on Death Row. It will bid a fair farewell on this notoriously less fatalistic occasion. I like ramen as much as I imagine people like cocaine. Granted Cabo doesn’t have a large variety of ramen options. Ramen is inferior to Udon. I use the word Ramen for linguistic simplicity. I mean Japanese Soup. My noodle of choice is Udon. Udon is always superior to Ramen. This is what the gods have decided. I won’t speak on behalf of the gods. I might impale a man to safeguard the sanctity of the divine order. […]
