Over the last couple of years, Los Cabos and other areas of the Baja California Sur region have been growing as foodie destinations.
Fantastic restaurants, both local and resort establishments, have been popping up all over the place and drawing in tourists who love great food.
And now there is another emerging foodie paradise near Los Cabos, El Pescadero, that is a must-visit during your next vacation.
El Pescadero Location
This new emerging foodie paradise is located about 15 minutes from the “Magic Town” of Todos Santos and only about an hour from Los Cabos.
It is a small farming village on the Pacific Ocean that is located within the municipality of La Paz, a town known for its artistic community.
El Pescadero is an up-and-coming destination for travelers to the region looking for a more authentic Baja California experience.
El Pescadero Culture And Community
El Pescadero is a less developed community than Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, or Todos Santos, but for the travelers who have fallen in love with this charming small town, it is an asset rather than a disadvantage.
It is still characterized by dirt roads, beautiful undeveloped coastlines, and more secluded beaches.
This is despite the fact that the area originally began being developed as early as 1724.

A Farming Town In The Desert
Although El Pescadero is in the desert and known more for its Pacific Beaches, it’s quickly becoming popular for its farming community too.
Visitors love driving through the town and seeing the flourishing farms growing many different kinds of produce.
Here you’ll find things like greens, corn, tomatoes, herbs, mangos, strawberries, and more growing.

Farm-to-table dining is a growing trend throughout the world, and that includes Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula.
Farm-to-table restaurants typically develop menus that focus on using fresh and organically grown ingredients.
Not only does this result in healthier food, but it’s better for the environment and the local communities that grow the produce used in farm-to-table restaurants.

Things To Do In And Around El Pescadero
In addition to having an amazing farm-to-table food scene in El Pescadero, there is plenty to do to stay busy during your time there.
Picnics on the beach, whale watching from the shore, catching a glimpse of wild horses, and surfing are all popular activities among tourists who visit the area.

Getting To El Pescadero
The best way to get to El Pescadero is to first fly into either La Paz International Airport or Los Cabos International Airport, Los Cabos being the more connected of the two.
You’ll then either need to rent a car or book a tour to get to the town.
While it may not be as easy to get to as Los Cabos, El Pescadero is really worth the visit if you’re looking for a more authentic Baja California Sur experience.
