WHERE IN MEXICO?

Where in Mexico can you drink tap water, eat fruits and veggies, not need Imodium and feel really safe? 

Easy to understand why celebs like George Clooney, the late Frank Sinatra-led Rat Pack and others, have regarded Cabo as their hideaway. 

 San Jose del Cabo?  Los Cabos? Cabo San Lucas?  Baja California? What happened to Cabo and why the different names?

About 1,000 miles from the US-Mexico border, Los Cabos is in Baja California Sur. With three distinct areas,  Cabo San Lucas (on the west) where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific, the Corridor and San Jose Del Cabo  to the east. 

The Corridor is a new highway about 20 miles between the two.  San Jose del Cabo is a more traditional town, founded by Jesuits in the 1700s.  Cabo San Lucas was a small fishing village.  Original denizens were not Mayan nor Aztec, but Pericu Indians (known as the Cora or Edues).

Initially a collection of fishing villages and a few resorts, the area burgeons with palatial homes dotting the shores with picturesque taquerias and local families pulling in the daily catch.  Tranquil town squares with historic architecture share space with designer nightclubs.  Celebrity sightings really do happen.

San Jose del Cabo lies about 30 km from Cabo San Lucas and a jaunt to Todos Santos, about 60 minutes north, boasts a thriving community of artists, surfers and North American expats.  Galleries, cafes and the Hotel California make for time well-spent.
