It's ten years too late for Los Cabos. For sustainable tourism to get some traction down here, it needs to establish its viability and merit with the locals long before the concrete gets poured. Rent a car, and head north. Either coast, it doesn't matter. Stop at small villages for food and drink. Leave a tip. Smile. Ask the locals where to find a good beach. Or whales. Or a fiesta. It doesn't really matter. Along with finding plenty of authenticity, you'll be an emissary for sustainable tourism.


I admit the place has indeed a good beach. It's supposed to be my secret beach. But obviously not anymore. Tsk. Tsk. I seldom even talk about it.


I have to agree with Charlie, it is at least 10 years too late for Los Cabos. We use to love to drive down to Baja and the little authentic villages are the best.


Commercialism seems to overtake many choice vacation spots. Best way to experience the local cuisine and culture is to take the back roads and mingle with the locals. Get off the beaten path.
