This is unfortunate since interacting with new and foreign cultures is perhaps the most enriching element of traveling abroad. Even in a place like Cabo, perhaps most well known for its tourism and luxury accommodations, Mexican culture is still ubiquitous. Here are a few of the places to visit around Cabo where you can witness firsthand the products of Mexico’s rich culture and traditions.
