Los Cabos Eats || Claro Fish Jr.

Claro Fish Jr. Los Cabos Tacos When you think of Mexico and particularly Mexican food, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?


Those fluffy delicious tortillas stuffed with everything scrumptious and wonderful in the world…

Oh how I LOVE a good taco.

(Don’t you?)

So when I visited Los Cabos and the Baja Peninsula for the first time in March, one of the first things on my agenda was “find the best baja fish taco in Los Cabos”.

And while my trip certainly wasn’t long enough to try ALL the baja fish tacos in Baja, I think I’ve succeeded in finding the ONE spot you won’t want to miss!

– a sunset cruise past El Arco

– dinner and drinks at a beachside restaurant

– whale watching
