Cabo San Lucas
Concierge.com's insider take:
Burros would still be wandering the sandy streets of Cabo San Lucas if the government hadn't swooped in to create a master-planned resort region here in the 1970s. San Lucas, Baja's southernmost city, has gone from a small town with a major fishing cannery to a huge city sprawling from the Cabo San Lucas harbor east to the surfing beaches on the Pacific. It's an anything goes kind of place, with bountiful bars for everyone from fishermen to college freshmen. The area's most popular beach, Playa Médano, is lined with laid-back bars with tables in the sand. A few famous restaurants and sushi bars add a touch of class and pull in guests from the posh resorts in the Corridor, the 18-mile-long highway north to San José.
