Paseo de la Marina Cabo San Lucas, BCS 23453 Mexico
The market is down the hill from Hotel Finisterra. A good one-stop souvenir shopping place but nothing you can't find elsewhere. It is located at the end of the marina so we asked the water taxi to drop us off there on the way back from Land's End.

Our post-spa/early dinner. It is just a few hotels down from Pueblo Bonita Rose on Playa Medano. The happy hour (2 for 1) runs from 7am to 7pm here and the drinks are huge. (The pina colada is only average). There seems to be more locals here and the atmosphere is more chill than The Office, which is right next door.

Stopped by Margaritavilla for some light lunch and drinks. The strawberry margarita was very good and it was HUGE! The shrimp cocktail and ceviche were also excellent. However, the pina colada was only a 7. (of 10)

Playa Medano is a 10-min ride on "bici taxi" and has several great restaurants along the beach. We went to the Office for dinner and it was plenty fun digging our feet into the sand. The food was good and the pina colada in pineapple cup was delicious. One of the best we've tasted in Cabo. (We made it our little conquest to try pina colada at every restaurant). Since it's very popular among tourists, there was a 45-min wait for us without a reservation.

Although we had Alexander as one of the "to-visit" restaurants on our trip planner, we actually didn't see it as it is nestled in a row of restaurants one after another. Luckily, their "tableside flambe" drew us in. We had their "surf and turf for two" which is 1 lobster and 28oz of steak, freshly prepared at your table side. Considering the amount/quality of food, it is actually a pretty good deal ($65USD). We opted pina colada for two glasses of wine to go with the nice dinner.
The owner Alex was friendly and personally greeted each table. Many of the patrons even asked to have pictures taken with him. The restaurant is right on the marina, so it's also a great place for people watching at night.
The food is AMAZING at Nick-San. We went there our first night at Cabo and had thought of going again before we leave (unfortunately we didn't make it back). My favorite was the homemade gyoza and my boyfriend liked the spicy hand roll. The food was delicate, light, yet full of flavors. Who knew sushi would be good with chipotle sauce?! The food is not cheap ($80USD for the two of us), but it's worth every penny! A must visit at Cabo!
