The Los Cabos municipality not only encompasses Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, but also the 20 mile stretch of coast that connects the cape cities. This scenic passageway, better known as the Tourist Corridor, is home to a surprising percentage of the area’s best shopping centers, golf courses, luxury resorts and fine dining establishments. Many of the top local restaurants, in fact, are hosted by the corridor's better hotels; most notably One & Only Palmilla and Sheraton Hacienda del Mar, each of which offers several excellent dining options.
Although virtually all the best Tourist Corridor based restaurants boast gorgeous seaside views, the culinary styles are quite varied, and range from traditional Mexican and seafood focused fare to the Euro-Asian influences featured at One & Only Palmilla’s Market – the first Mexican venture for celebrated French Chef Jean-George Vongerichten – and the Pacific Rim fusions favored by German born Pitahayas Chef Volker Romeike.
Seafood remains king, however. The typical Tourist Corridor dining experience is sure to include shrimp and lobster, and area standouts such as Villa Serena, Puerta Vieja and Sunset da Mona Lisa built their considerable reputations showcasing fresh local seafood specialties. The area's ultimate seafood stop, however, may still be Nick-San, which serves up sushi with a Mexican twist at the upscale shopping complex Las Tiendas de Palmilla.
