The beach resort destination of Los Cabos has long been known for three main things – sun, surf and sand.

However, the perception of Los Cabos is rapidly changing from a beach town to a luxury vacation location.

The evolution of Los Cabos has made amenities like spa services, high-end resorts, and upscale adventure tourism part of the experience of visiting the area.

It has also made quite a name for itself as an emerging destination for upscale foodies.

A mark of the fine dining experience around the world is the coveted Michelin star. Hosting a foodie event worthy of the Michelin name is just as prestigious.

Developing Fine Dining Community

While Los Cabos is just getting known for foodie dining experiences, there is still a need for additional fine dining restaurants in the popular beach resort destination.

Events like Michelin Meets Mexico and Top Chef Los Cabos will definitely help raise the perception of the area as a luxury fine dining resort destination.

It also hopefully will attract Michelin-star-recognized chefs and restaurants to choose Los Cabos for their new fine dining locations.

With the third busiest airport in the entire country, Los Cabos has the tourist traffic that attracts the worldwide popular celebrity chefs. It is just a matter of time before one of them recognizes the market potential of Los Cabos.

For tourists, especially foodies, this will eventually be just another great reason to visit Los Cabos.

It also fits well with the many upscale amenities available as Los Cabos continues its evolution from a college beach party town to a luxury beach resort destination in Mexico.
