For the best shopping in Los Cabos, Forbes Travel Guide’s editors recommend first checking out Cabo San Lucas. Though Cabo’s shops stock plenty of the bypassable bric-a-brac common to any Mexican tourist destination, it's not all kitschy shot glasses and ill-fitting T-shirts bearing crude one-liners. The glitzy Plaza Puerto Paraiso mall houses a slew of international brands including Cartier, Hermés, Bulgari, Ferragamo and Tiffany & Co., plus a 10-theater cinema, a bowling alley and an arcade.
For more of a local flavor, head to San Jose del Cabo’s historic downtown area — the streets surrounding Plaza Mijares and the nearby art district, namely — for boutiques specializing in jewelry, ceramics and other artisan work from around Mexico.
