People head to Cabo for a plethora of reasons, including the fantastic weather, the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez, the bountiful fishing and of course the buzzing nightlife. But, let’s not forget about the delicious food! Cabo is home to an array of eateries, from gourmet restaurants to hole-in-the-wall dives that serve the best tacos I’ve ever tasted. But when it comes to stocking the shelves of the villa that you’ve rented for the week, you can shop at the local Costco, or you can go local and peruse the many farmer’s markets and organic groceries located throughout the area.
