Pescadero & Playa Cerritos
Pescadero (official name, El Pescadero) is a very small town located less than an hour north of Cabo San Lucas and fifteen minutes south of Todos Santos. Once a kicked back farming community, it is now becoming a popular place for retirees and ex-pats from the U.S. and Canada. The area is bustling with development although it really doesn’t show very much, unless you really take a close look.
The locals are very friendly (muy simpatico) and many have lived in the area for generations. There are not a lot of Pescadero residents who speak much English, so practice up on your Spanish before a visit.
There is still quite a bit of farming activity, the area is famous for the quality of the chilies and basil grown here. Mango groves and papaya trees were often used as property dividers in this fertile valley that fronts on the Pacific Ocean. Along with the mangos and papayas produced, the local fields also produce strawberries and a very flavorful cherry tomato.
