LOS CABOS

THE MEXICAN FIRE OPALS JEWELRY FACTORY
Boulevard Mijares 5
San Jose del Cabo
Tel: 52-624-142-6394

Los Cabos isn't ordinarily the place to go for bling, but Mexican fire opals—named for their brilliant red-to-orange color—are an exception. This factory, owned by the Sanchez family since 1980, specializes in making unique pieces using a huge variety of precious and semiprecious stones set mostly in gold, silver and platinum. You can watch the rings, pendants and bracelets being made (it takes a day before they’re ready); you can also buy loose stones and have something created. Hand-carved figurines made of different types of opal—including black, the hardest to find in Mexico—are also sold here.

This boutique (the name means "Girls Without Limits") can whip up a custom bathing suit in 24 hours. All you have to do is pick out the fabric and design from a wide selection.

Here's another store where sizes run from extra-small to 4X; its slogan is "We make clothes the old fashioned way, one at a time." You can capture your true spirit selecting from more than 650 prewashed European fabrics. The sexy and romantic designs are inspired by golden Baja days and moonlit Cabo nights. Custom orders are ready in just three days, but there's also an amazing array of ready-to-wear blouses, skirts, pants, dresses and pareos.

ANTIGUA LOS CABOS

A 150-year-old home that was once the public library is now a unique store where you'll find antiques, crafts and books. But the real draw is the great selection of award-winning tequilas, tequila-based liqueurs and Damiana, the liquor produced in Baja California. Antigua Los Cabos offers complimentary tastings during which you can train your palate and learn about top notes, undertones and finishes in these premium distillations.

J&J PREMIUM CIGARS
Madero Street, between Boulevard Marina and Guerrero
Cabo San Lucas
Tel: 52-624-143-6160
jnjhabanos.com

Husband Jose and wife Julieta started out selling cigars from a window in Cabo San Lucas; as word spread that their Cuban cigars weren't fake (which isn't always the case in Los Cabos), their business grew. They now own Cabo's largest cigar shop, offering premium Cuban and fine Mexican cigars—step into the walk-in humidor and make your selection. They also sell a variety of cigar accessories and fine tequilas. Those who don't puff can check out the exclusive line of J&J wear. Note that it’s illegal to bring Cuban cigars into the U.S.
