I had a great time while in Baja Sur, Mexico! In between SCUBA diving and Snorkeling with sea lions, I found time to visit a variety of special restaurants as part of a food tour! When I say Baja Sur, I am mostly referring to the cities of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose and La Paz.
In addition to traditional restaurants, I experimented with street food. The fresh clam and shrimp cocktail in this photo was from a place called Guendulay Mariscos, which was one of my favorites. The dish was made from Mexican chocolate clams, named after the rich color of their shell.
It is challenging to find these clams outside of Mexico because they are only harvested in coastal lagoon areas from the Magdalena Bay south along the Pacific side of Baja, throughout the Sea of Cortez, and along the coast of the mainland down to Guatemala.
Most of the spots that I visited are included in this video, but a few are not. Check out the list below for my favorites!
