Los Tamarindos, a vegetable and herb farm in San José del Cabo, welcomes vacationing foodies who want to learn the ins and outs of organic farming and cooking from the fields. After a glass of homemade juice or lemongrass tea beneath a canopy of mango trees, visitors are outfitted with comically oversize broad-brimmed hats and then set about learning the basics of planting, picking, and preserving produce. Participants join charismatic owner Enrique Silva in preparing a meal with freshly picked ingredients. Queso en hoja santa, a carb-free thin-crust pizza topped with asadero cheese is a typical dish, and if the timing is right, you can try the chivito regional, pepper-seasoned baked goat sourced from a nearby farm. The idyllic atmosphere of the old farmhouse and a meal served family-style on a patio overlooking the fields is well worth the labor and the wait.—Isabel Sterne
