Don't ride the ferry boats. Oh, don't drink the water!

Solomon's Landing breakfast is excellent. On the marina. Pricey.

100% hands down best authentic, local cuisine and dirt cheap is Mariscos La Palmita. Locals outnumber the tourists 3:1. Phenomenal seafood. Shrimp tacos, or baked clams are my personal favorites there. Definitely eat their raw clams and maybe oysters too. Located a couple blocks off the marina. Looks like a dive, but don't be afraid. It's heaven on earth. Opens around 11. They don't get their daily clam/oyster delivery sometimes till noon.

Another "off the beaten path" breakfast favorite for us on the cheap is Restaurant El Pescador. Again, 2-3 blocks away from the marina.

I don't think there is any bad food in Cabo. Very pricey on the beach (the office) or around the Marina. The local dives like Mariscos La Palmita are where we eat 80% of the time.

Travel Advisory March 9, 2018

Mexico – Level 2: Exercise increased caution

Exercise increased caution in Mexico due to crime. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.

Violent crime, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery, is widespread.
The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Mexico as U.S. government employees are prohibited from travel to these areas.

U.S. government employees are prohibited from intercity travel after dark in many areas of Mexico. U.S. government employees are also not permitted to drive from the U.S.-Mexico border to or from the interior parts of Mexico with the exception of daytime travel on Highway 15 between Nogales and Hermosillo.

Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.

Do not travel to:
• Colima state due to crime.
• Guerrero state due to crime.
• Michoacán state due to crime.
• Sinaloa state due to crime.
• Tamaulipas state due to crime.

For all other states in Mexico, please see detailed information below.

If you decide to travel to Mexico:
• Use toll roads when possible and avoid driving at night.
• Exercise increased caution when visiting local bars, nightclubs, and casinos.
• Do not display signs of wealth, such as wearing expensive watches or jewelry.
• Be extra vigilant when visiting banks or ATMs.
• Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.
• Follow the Department of State on Facebook and Twitter.
• Review the Crime and Safety Reports for Mexico.
• U.S. citizens who travel abroad should always have a contingency plan for emergency situations. Review the Traveler’s Checklist.

Baja California Sur state – Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution
Exercise increased caution due to crime.

Criminal activity and violence, including homicide, remain an issue throughout the state. According to Government of Mexico statistics, the state experienced an increase in homicide rates compared to the same period in 2016. While most of these homicides appeared to be targeted, criminal organization assassinations, turf battles between criminal groups have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by U.S. citizens. Bystanders have been injured or killed in shooting incidents.

There are no U.S. government restrictions for travel in Baja California Sur, which includes
the tourist areas of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, and La Paz.

I find the travel advisories a bunch of fluff. If you are going to a tourist area and don't intend to participate in the drug trade, you are going to have zero issues. Last time I was in Mazatlan was 2 months after El Chapo was captured in the city. Zero worries. Tourists are how they launder money.

For the most part you are correct, and most people don't know this, but there are 7 major drug cartels in Mexico… And It would appear that the US and Mexico were making progress in the war against the cartels with the capture of Beltrans cartel leader in 2016 (now doing life in a US prison), El Chapo doing hard time here in the US as of 2017, The leader of Sinaloa cartel also in 2017 and most recently Valencia (leader of the Zetas) being captured last month…

However, just like the American Mafia, you knock out the “good” leadership, and it is replaced with a bunch of ridiculously stupid replacement shoot em up cowboys and it could get even worse – bloodier and affect tourism more.

Just be careful when going to Mexico. Stick to the biggest busiest tourist areas, not the back streets to save a buck on that crappy blanket you’ll never use back home.
