We drove and walked around Cabo San Lucas on Monday, January 14th.  We walked around the Boulevard Marina and the water front (known as the Malecon) where all the boats and yachts are located.  There are many restaurants, a few resorts and tons of vendors set up, selling you anything from candy, gum to clothing, jewellery, hand crafted ornaments, you name, it they had it!  We found a somewhat busy patio (Restaurant Wamango De Baja) on the Malecon and decided to stop in for the special they were offering - 5 beers with nacho chips and salsa for only US $10.  We watched the sunset and really enjoyed the day.

That evening we went to the local supermarket named Super Plaza Aramburo, because we needed to buy a few groceries.  For people who do the all-inclusive and they think Mexico is really cheap, think again!!  We found out that food in Cabo is not cheap at all and to give you a few examples: a green pepper is about US $2.38, that is for one pepper, most vegetables were very pricey because they are not grown in the Baha and are mostly imported from the US or mainland Mexico.  Anything canned such as soups, vegetables were about US $2 to $3 per can...quite outrageous!!  We bought a pasta sauce and it cost almost US $5.  Bread was not bad, often at about US $1.50 to $2, but some may even think that is pricey.  So it goes to show you that unless you are actually grocery shopping in Cabo you will never know how expensive food really is!  We are not really sure how the locals can actually afford to grocery shop in Cabo.
