I grew up in a semi-nomadic fashion. Rotating between Cabo San Lucas, Marin County, and Maui. I've been truly blessed to be able to experience so many different places, cultures, ecosystems, healing modalities and cuisines. I even went to school in Cabo for some time, where I had no choice but to pick up the language as fast as I could as I learned 4th grade math in Spanish.
Besides learning español and how to make the best sopa de tortilla of all time (comment if you want that recipe), I've also discovered the best restaurants, spots, excursions, and activities in & around Cabo.
Going? I got you. This place is a blast.
