From Gardenias to La Lupita's and Point Break at The Cape, we'll explore the top taco spots in Cabo San Lucas. I'll even share a secret recipe for Spicy Sandia with Watermelon and Mezcal that's sure to tantalize your taste buds.

So buckle up and let's get this taco tour started!

Tacos Gardenias

Let's begin our taco tour at Tacos Gardenias, where you can taste the freshest fish tacos in town. This little taco joint has a modest atmosphere, but don't let its size fool you. Gardenias' fish tacos are packed with flavor and come with a generous serving of fish. Their secret lies in the batter and their signature sauces.

The fish is battered and fried just right while the signature sauces add a touch of sweetness and tanginess, making each bite heavenly. Pair your taco with one of their refreshing margaritas, and you're in for a treat.

La Lupita Taco & Mezcal

If you're looking for a more upmarket taco experience, head over to La Lupita Taco & Mezcal. This restaurant has a chic and trendy ambiance that is perfect for a night out.

The star of the show here is the al pastor taco. The pork is flavored with fresh pineapple and slow-cooked until it's juicy and tender. The taco comes served with onions, cilantro, and a lime wedge, but don't forget to add their homemade salsa for an extra zing. While you're here, don't forget to try their delicious mezcal cocktails, too!

Point Break at The Cape

Are you looking for a casual spot to have some poolside dining? Then look no further than Point Break at The Cape Best Pool Bites. Not only do they have one of the best views in town, but their tacos are divine. Here you'll find a variety of tacos, such as shrimp, fish, and veggie tacos, which are served with homemade salsa and guacamole.

The seafood tacos are particularly delicious. But what sets Point Break apart is the variety of house-made hot sauces. You'll definitely want to try them all to find your favorite.

Spicy Sandia

Since we're on a taco tour, I want to share with you a taco-inspired drink recipe that's perfect for a hot day in Cabo. Make a Spicy Sandia with watermelon and mezcal to cool off and spice up your vacation.

To start, add two cups of chopped watermelon to a blender, along with two tablespoons of lime juice, one tablespoon of honey, and a jalapeno or serrano pepper, depending on how spicy you like it. Puree everything together, then add four ounces of mezcal and pulse until well mixed. Pour over ice, add a slice of watermelon as a garnish, and enjoy!


Well, there you have it, folks. Three of the best taco spots in Cabo San Lucas, along with a refreshing drink recipe. Whether you're looking for a casual street taco or a more upscale dining experience, Cabo has it all. I hope this taco tour has given you some inspiration for your next vacation.

Remember, tacos are always a good idea!
