If you want to eat somewhere that feels like a luxury resort in Cabo, head to Esperanza Cocina de la Playa. It’s a Mexican spot about four blocks up from the beach with a striking curved facade and all-white dining room that could rival any designer boutique on Rodeo Drive. They specialize in top-notch margaritas and upscale seafood dishes like crab enchiladas. We especially love their selection of ceviches: The shrimp and pineapple one is sweet and tart, with lots of plump shrimp tossed in a spicy mango-tajin broth. Share it at a table near the entrance to catch a nice breeze while watching people clog the sidewalks on their way to the pier.
