Finding new friends and building social and business relationships are important aspects of Los Cabos life, especially for those who came to the area as tourists when it was just a small fishing village and remained as residents. As the population grew, so did the social structure.
Los Cabos Tomatoes is considered to be the ladies social organization. It was formed in 1991 by someone new to the area who asked her real estate agent to invite a few friends to her new home so she could become acquainted with others in the community. The handful who came had such a good time that they agreed to meet again in two weeks and to each bring a friend. They called themselves “Tomatoes,” a play on the slang term for “attractive ladies.” There are now more than 600 members who meet twice a month to indulge in good and old-fashioned conversation, make new friends, and learn about what is going on in the area.

What does it take to become a Caboholic? Come to Los Cabos and fall in love. That is the first requirement to become a Caboholic, a fun social networking group where people come together to share ideas, advice, and opinions—in person and online. For more information, go to www.caboholics.com.
Social events abound. Examples include the annual Dressed to the K9’s benefit for the Los Cabos Humane Society as well as Casino Night, an elegant affair for Building Baja’s Future (an organization dedicated to helping academically advanced high school students fulfill their dreams of achieving a college education). Sabor a Cabo is an annual feast during which 50 chefs from local restaurants—as well as some celebrity chefs from abroad—welcome more than 2,000. Proceeds benefit the Red Cross Fire Department and the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation.
Regardless of age, gender, or nationality, there is a social outlet for everyone.
