Mamma Mia Restaurant

A stone's throw from the surf, Mamma Mia has different themes every night, ranging from reggae and grilled lobster to fajitas and Mexican folkloric dancing. On Tuesday night, four of us listened to a red-hot boogie jazz band while enjoying excellent wood-fired pizza, salad, margaritas and beer for a total of $60. Find it behind the Coral Baja Hotel; 624-142-3939

Walk this Way

The beach is the grand promenade, and the best time for your daily hike is low tide, when the sand is flat and firm and dolphins are chasing sardines in the surf. Low tide occurs about 40 minutes later every day. Check Baja tide tables at myforecast.com.

Fishing

If you walk along the pier in Cabo San Lucas, you can make reservations at a fishing kiosk. Do not give a deposit to a "captain" standing by a boat (it may not be his). CaboFishingFleet.com, 1-888-557-3330
