|About these ratings|
If you tire of the beach or have had your fill of margaritas, head to the Iglesia de San Lucas (Church of San Lucas) for what Frommer's calls the "strongest Mexican ambience in town."
The landmark is the main church in Cabo San Lucas and an excellent place to view local architecture as well as observe local traditions. The church was constructed by a Spanish missionary in 1730 and is surrounded by a pristine plaza that contains several restaurants and small shops. Even with the renovations, the church remains relatively unchanged since the 19th century, making it ideal for exploring the city's architectural past.
The area has been renovated over the past several years and continues to attract many tourists. The nearby town square on Calle Cabo also hosts a number of shops and restaurants, not to mention a picturesque gazebo.
