The 10th International Food and Wine event did not disappoint; in fact, it exceeded the expectations of those responsible for the event and for the 2,000 who attended the finale held on the evening of Saturday, December 5.


Preceding the final event were other activities such as the Beer Fest on December 2 and the Art Walk on December 3. Sabor a Cabo, or Taste of Cabo, with its theme of “Simmering…a tribute to Mexico’s roots”, was under the sponsorship of the Los Cabos Tourism Board, Rubin Reachi, Managing Director and leadership of Alfonso Vazquez Olivas, President of Sabor a Cabo.
