A few years ago, a principal friend of mine who lives in San Clemente–and coincidentally also has a timeshare at Playa Grande!–told me about this great little secret. Between the airport and San Jose del Cabo proper sits a beautiful little farm in the middle of the desert. The first time we went, we worried that we would get lost somewhere on the dirt roads as it was out in the middle of nowhere with very little signage. Now, with the way Cabo has been growing, they have paved some of the roads, there are nice signs, and there is even some building going on in the area! Los Cabos has been booming the last five years, so things are changing quickly, but it is still Mexico. And Floral Farms is still this amazing green oasis in the dry-brush desert of Baja.
Almost all of the food served in the restaurant, Flora’s Farm Kitchen, is grown on the farm, including some of the meats. At any given time, there are dogs numbering in the teens they have rescued that live there. It’s a wholesome place and just makes you feel good eating there. The seating and bar are in open-sided buildings and on patios where you can view the various farm areas.
With the weather in this inland area in the 90’s, my chambray sundress from Stitch Fix was the perfect dress to wear–along with a hat and comfy shoes and some colorful earrings.
You can walk the various areas of the farm, and they even have cooking classes! Here are just some areas of the working farm:
The food is always fresh and delicious and they have some amazing concoctions for drinks, too! We love the Grilled Fruit Sangria, as you can see here. SO good!
And so we said goodbye to Floral Farms–our oasis in the desert–passing once more through the cactus and brush of the desert on our way back to the Coast. Adios!
Thanks for stopping by my post today. I hope you enjoyed this little tour of one of our favorite spots in Baja and that you will check back in tomorrow. For my last post in Mexico, I will be showing and telling you about some of the beautiful beaches in Los Cabos.
