Cabo San Lucas Vacation

Overview

Quote:
Villa Del Palmar (an RCI resort) proved to be one of our more memorable vacation resort destinations. VDP sits along one of the most popular beaches in Cabo San Lucas, Medano Beach. The pool resort staff members; Rene, Jose, and Victor were most entertaining and proved to be excellent ping pong players! We had some very competitive games. The pool volleyball allowed for much guest interaction. An absolute must when in Cabo is a trip to The Office. This beachside watering hole is what fun is all about. Not only do the servers keep you "hydrated", the food is also very good. And, because of the Office's popularity, the surrounding beachside sites also provide continual entertainment making for a...Read More

Mocambo Restaurant

Restaurant | "Mariscos Mocambo"

Mariscos Mocambo was an excellent recommendation provided us. If you're one for seafood, Mariscos Mocambo is the place for exciting your seafood palate.

The food was heavenly. The "parrillada" special for four was one of the best seafood platters I've ever had. The restaurant is clean, well kept, and the staff most attentive. The strolling musician duo were the best I heard during our week's stay! They played one of the best renditions (and I've heard a number of them!) of "Sabor A Mi" that I've ever heard. As this was our wedding song some 27 years ago, it was exceptionally well received.

Pancho's

Restaurant

Quote:
Pancho's Restaurant is another must for eating and drinking for anyone visiting Cabo San Lucas. Pancho's is renowned for its inventory of over 500 different types of tequila. Sit and chat with the bartender and he will provide you a lesson of Tequila 101. It is quite informative. Taste some of the best tequila found anywhere in the world. The breakfast at Pancho's will please even the most discriminating palate. Order their pozole as an absolute must after a night of drinking and frivolity.

Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is an experience in itself. The porterhouse steak for two is a highly recommended menu selection. Although a bit pricey, around US$90, it’s well worth its price. The unique presentation of sizzling (very hot) plates containing butter and garlic in which you dip your pre-cut steak adds a very unique flavor. This is certainly an eating encounter worthy of consideration when in Cabo San Lucas.
