Around Cabo San Lucas and San Jose ?

  • 0

My wife and I are heading down to Cabo San Lucas May 31. We love food and wine, but not at the expense of quality, character and value. We live in Manhattan and love to discover non-touristy spots where the food is excellent, the wine and drink selection reasonably varied and the price great. I'm not suggesting we'll find that kind of variety or choice in Cabo San Lucas and surrounding area, however I don't want to end up at Edith's paying a high price to eat mediocre food in a tourist trap (the impression I'm getting from other posts).

So, here are some questions:
- What's good for a local? Price is not as important as is value, authenticity and quality
- Is it worth renting a car for the week we'll be there, and drive to various areas around the peninsula?
- Are there any BYOBs (we can bring our own wine, and save on the 3x or so markup others have been alluding to)
- If we had to choose 1 exceptional dining experience while there, what would it be?

Any other advice is appreciated.

Off topic: Any advice on getting a good deal on a round of golf (on top of twighlight tee times)?
