Among the traditional dishes of Los Cabos, you will find fish, shrimp and octopus tacos, browned crab, smoked marlin tostadas, grilled clams, abalone or squid chilorio, and stuffed crab. Similar to other destinations in the country, the best restaurants  in Los Cabos has its own style for preparing dishes, such as tamales fajados (stuffed with chicken) and the tamales de güemes–made with pork meat or chicken, raisins, olive oil and olives.

When it comes to drinks, there are several you can’t miss, like the clamato (tomato juices and seasoned clam), pithaya flavored water, date and Damian liquor (made of wild plant); the last one is produced by Guaycura natives for their ceremonies.
