Holiday Shopping in Los Cabos

Holiday Shopping in Los Cabos

The holiday season, as evidenced by the colorful twinkling lights in every resort and community from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo, is upon us. Even though it doesn’t snow in Cabo, Santa is on his way!
Looking for something special for that special someone? Here’s our pick of the best last-minute holiday shopping spots in Los Cabos.

Quivira Golf Club

For the hard-to-shop-for golfer in your life, the pro shop at Quivira Golf Club, housed in a thatched-roof, beachfront clubhouse within earshot of the breaking surf, carries a fine selection of sportswear for men and women. The shop is not large, but it punches well above its weight. According to director of golf Antonio Reynante, the shop’s leading apparel brands for men include Peter Millar, Johnnie O, Bad Birdie, Sunday Swagger, and the Quivira Collection. For women, EP, Sofibella, and Jaybird are the top brands. For hats, caps, and visors, check the fantastic selection of Quivira logo headwear from Pukka and Imperial.

Shops at Flora Farms

Flora Farms’ Field Kitchen is justifiably famous for its farm-to-table cuisine, but the adjacent Shops, a series of boutiques that carry a curated collection of trendy apparel, jewelry, fragrances, body care products and culinary delights, are just as noteworthy. For example, Eduardo Sanchez Jewelry highlights the superb work of Mexican jeweler Eduardo Sanchez, who learned his craft from Italian masters in Florence and Rome. HIVE Fragrance Studio stocks over 70 all-natural fragrances, each meticulously selected and some using flowers and herbs grown at Flora Farms. Santo Cabo carries handcrafted soap and body care products made with natural ingredients of the highest quality, many of them sourced regionally. James Perse, with collections for men, women and home, is synonymous with SoCal style and sophistication. Selfe Edge offers exceptional men's denim, shirts and leather accessories, all with an urban aesthetic. El Wine Shop, a cozy wine bar and coffee shop, offers well-chosen Mexican and international wines (by the bottle or glass) as well as single origin coffee. Flora’s other shops include Eclectic Array, Anne Sidora, and Etnia.
For edible gifts, drop by the Grocery at Flora Farms, which is stocked with fresh produce and meats from the ranch such as house-cured ham, bacon and sausages plus chicken and roasts. Shop for eggs, homemade bagels, cakes and cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, pickled goods, sauces, dressings and preserves. Vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruit are all picked fresh daily. The aroma of artisan bread, baked each morning in a wood-burning oven, is alone worth the trip.

Plaza Puerto Paraiso

Fronting the marina in Cabo San Lucas, this three-level, air-conditioned mall has dozens of shops and businesses, including a Harley Davidson showroom. There are art galleries, numerous restaurants (from Ruth’s Chris Steak House to a Haagen Dazs Coffee Shop) plus a multi-theater Cineplex. Name-brand stores range from L’Occitane and Tumi to Kenneth Cole and Tommy Bahama. For a great selection of men’s swim trunks made in Spain and Mexico, head to Hua (pronounced “How”). Next door is Zingara, which carries quality women’s swimwear and accessories. Have you promised him or her the sun and the moon? The Sergio Bustamante Gallery features silver- and gold-plated jewelry by the eponymous Mexican artist who uses the sun and the moon as design motifs in many of his creations.

Luxury Avenue

Showcasing a varied collection of high-end fashion brands, this stylish boutique mall just steps from the marina is the place to go for top-tier designer gifts. Luxury Avenue’s list of retailers includes Caroline Herrera, Salvatore Ferragamo, Longchamp, Lacoste, Swarovski, Pandora, Victoria’s Secret, Sunglass Hut, TAG Heuer, Vilebrequin (luxury swim and loungewear) and more. In addition, Ultrafemme carries the very best men’s and women’s fragrances— Acqua di Parma, Hugo Boss, Cartier, Chanel, Creed, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Hermes, Yves Saint Laurent, Loewe and Jo Malone are among the top brands. Next door is Ultrajewels, specialists in timepieces and jewelry.

La Coyota

Tucked away in downtown Cabo San Lucas, La Coyota occupies a Colonial-style hacienda that was once the home of Edith Jimenez (as in Edith’s Restaurante and The Office). Her abode has since been converted into an emporium where every conceivable surface and space is ‘shoppable.’ One of the bedrooms is decked out entirely in embroidered linens. The kid’s room is packed with plush toys, dolls, games, and Day of the Dead-themed figurines and curiosities from Oaxaca. The second floor landing is outfitted from floor to ceiling in glass hearts and religious artifacts. Handcrafted cotton clothing, silver serving pieces, and costume jewelry can be found in other rooms off the upstairs balcony. In La Coyota’s sun-filled courtyard hand-blown glass ornaments are displayed in every size and color. Colorful ceramics, hand-painted talavera pottery, light fixtures, curio boxes, napkins and placemats, and countless other treasures round out the collection at La Coyota.
