Cabo’s glitzy attractions are great fun, but to really get the feel of a city, you need to know where to step off the beaten path. We recommend exploring these lesser known cultural treasures during your stay:
Museo de Historia Natural
Located in a former school house, this fascinating little museum is not nearly as little as it appears from the outside. Exhibits start with the origins of the universe and proceed through cosmic and geological time up to present day, emphasizing especially the natural history and cultures of the Baja region.
Plaza Amelia Wilkes, Cabo San Lucas Centro, 23450 Cabo San Lucas
La Turquesa Jewelry and Art
Handcrafted jewelry, blown glass, paintings, sculptures, textiles, and other objets d’art abound in this charming and authentically Mexican shop with a famously friendly staff. Stop in for the perfect gift; leave a customer for life.
Francisco I Madero 7, Centro, San Lucas, 23450 Cabo San Lucas
Héctor Estrada Art Gallery
This gallery is owned and operated by Héctor Estrada, a co-founder of the Panamanian Association of Fine Arts who has exhibited across Mexico, Central America, the Dominican Republic, and Cuba. The brilliant paintings and sculptures that fill this venue will almost certainly include something that’s just right for your collection.
