One guilty pleasure that most of us enjoy is an appetizing meal in a restaurant, but we also might worry about maintaining our beach body and healthy lifestyle! Luckily, with all of the incredible organic spots in Los Cabos you can enjoy both exquisite and healthy food. Forget about counting calories!
Before our Top 5 Organic Spots, let’s talk about what organic food is.
Organic food is the product of a farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilizers, pesticides, growth regulators and livestock feed additives.
The sweeping public opinion is that organic food is healthier than conventional food and research has supported this view. This is the main reason for the dramatic increase in its demand over the past years.
1.- LOS TAMARINDOS
It is an Organic Farm & Restaurant located just one mile away from the Sea of Cortez and San Jose Del Cabos’ estuary. It’s a property dating back to the 19th Century and was first used to grow sugar cane; one of the area’s major exports during that time, and due to its fertile soil quickly became one of the region’s most important farms.
Whether you’re back from scuba diving, a camel ride or from a shopping day, you would definitely enjoy to relax at the table and taste a balsamic or steely wine and enjoy one of their many excellent dishes.

For over 10 years they have been farming without the use of pesticides or genetically modified seeds. They have an ideal winter growing season that corresponds with the local high season and the need for exported produce. After founding the local farmers market on the farm some 10 years ago, they have dedicated 100% of their production to local consumption. Now Flora Farm grows for Floras Field Kitchen, Floras Grocery and the Culinary Cottage owners.
