Try This Tequila Substitute on Your Next Trip to Baja California

October 28, 2014 at 11:39 AM | by | Comments (0)

Tequila and summertime lagers dominate the drinking scene in Mexico so much so that, unless you're hitting up fancy cocktail bars in Mexico City, variety is not something you expect to experience. Because of that, we get very excited anytime we come across a liquid vice that allows us to do a margarita differently.

In Cabo and Baja California, keep your eye out for Damiana, a herb-based liqueur produced from the locally grown plant by the same name, which is considered to be a strong aphrodisiac in itself. So, you can imagine the potential it holds when fermented. As a funny footnote, a Mexican bride is sometimes given a bottle of Diamana as a wedding present to foster fertility.

Too Much Tequila? Leave the Bar Behind for These Activities in Cabo San Lucas

October 22, 2014 at 12:50 PM | by | Comments (0)

Cabo has been no stranger to the front lines of travel news of late, first with the announcement of new routes on Delta and more recently in the wake of the hurricane. We wish the whole area a speedy recovery, and hope the damage doesn't discourage visitors for too long.

Given that the high season in Mexico is now in sight, many of you may already have plans to head south to Baja this winter. If that's the case, you're most likely planning to partake in a bit of tequila. Which is understandable. Most people think of Cabo as a collegiate destination that specializes in dollar beers and watered-down margaritas, and that's certainly part of it. But over the course of a few visits, we discovered that it is still possible to experience what Cabo used to be, before marketing agencies and tourism boards decided to foster the spring-break atmosphere in San Lucas, before developers bulldozed much of the dramatic, rocky coastline.

Delta Launches First Non-Stop Flight Between JFK and Cabo...Just for a Few Months

The infamous "drinking dragon" arch of Cabo San Lucas

Given the geographic locations and flight paths, it makes total sense that spring breakers from the east coast party in Cancun and those in the west shake their tailfeathers in Cabo. The same goes for normal people who want to sip margaritas and live the resort life.

But Delta is giving New Yorkers a way to do something different this year with a nonstop flight between JFK and Cabo starting in December, and it will be the only direct flight between the two cities. The interesting caveat here is that the flight will be seasonal and operate only on Saturdays and only from December 20 through June 27, 2015. Sounds like Delta 1) is going to test out the route and 2) rightfully believes that there isn't enough demand to fill a weekly flight during the hot summer months.

Coming back from a weekend of adventures in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and feeling a little, well, under the weather? Just pop into the new terminal at the Cabo San Lucas International Airport (SJD) and pick up whatever you need from Zithromax to Ibuprofen and even Cialis and Valtrex. And no, you do not need to show a prescription for most of the products.

While we scanned the shelves for some Xanax or Valium (see below, we were hesitant to pick up the 800mg Ibuprofen. It just didn't seem right.
