Take a break from the beach with some time spent browsing the boutiques and shops of Cabo. More than kitschy souvenir stands, Cabo shopping options come as a pleasant surprise compared to some beachside getaways. Whether you’re looking for unique gift-giving items or something for yourself, you will find a variety of shopping options in Cabo.
Cabo Shopping Malls
Puerto Paraíso is perhaps Cabo’s most popular shopping mall, offering art galleries, clothing shops, boutiques, restaurants, and even a casino and 10-theater cinema. Shop ‘til you drop and then enjoy dinner at one of the restaurants fronting the marina, such as the Baja Brewing Company. For an upscale shopping experience, head to Plaza del Pescador, which offers shopping in Cabo San Lucas and dining in a crisp modern setting. Restaurants featuring a variety of worldwide cuisines as well as big-name clothing brands can be found at Plaza del Pescador. Pick up the latest swimwear and clothing trends before treating yourself to dinner on the plaza. Next to Puerto Paraíso on the Cabo San Lucas Marina, Luxury Avenue’s name says it all. Taking it up a notch in the way of an upscale shopping experience, Luxury Avenue is home to famed worldwide brands such as Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo, Cartier, and Montblanc. All the latest fashions, along with the pricey tags, can be found here.
Cabo’s Art Scene
San Jose del Cabo has a happening art scene, with galleries lining its charming downtown cobblestone streets. The historic Distrito del Arte is home to several art galleries with pieces made by both local and regional artists. In addition to regular shopping hours, the art district comes alive on Thursday evenings for Art Walk during select seasons.
While big-box stores don’t usually offer much in the way of charm, they are often the most convenient option. To pick up any items forgotten at home or groceries and drinks to stock your vacation rental, Plaza San Lucas is your one-stop-shop. This is where you’ll find the local Walmart alongside a wine and liquor store and a handful of clothing stores. Get your shopping in Cabo San Lucas done quickly at Plaza San Lucas so you can get back to your time on the beach!
If you do want to pick up some souvenirs while in Cabo, Plaza Artesanos in San José del Cabo is the place to go. Rows of vendors are found here with their wares of authentic Mexican handicrafts, such as locally made ceramics, jewelry, rugs, and blankets.
