As Los Cabos continues on its upscale trajectory, it's safe to declare that this region has arrived and the shopping here has gone palatial. There is no better, or more apt, way to describe Puerto Paraíso, the city's thriving, air-conditioned, three-story marble- and glass-enclosed mall. With well more than 100 stores, boutiques, restaurants, galleries, and services, it's quickly becoming the social center of San Lucas. Paraíso offers a dizzying selection, from "A" as
in Arte de Origen, an upscale shop selling art and local handicrafts, to "Z" as in the Zingara Swimwear shop. You can have a steak at Ruth's Chris Steak House; custom-design your own bikini; check your email at an Internet café; shop for beautiful art glass; or rent (or even buy) a Harley-Davidson motorcycle—almost anything is possible in this shopper's paradise. Sergio Bustamante, an acclaimed silversmith and sculptor, has recently opened a store here, and clothing shops include Tommy Bahama, Hugo Boss, and Nike. Beachwear boutiques such as Allegra, Azul, Blu Lagoon, Pacific Blue, Tropica Calipso, Squalo Surf Shop, and Nautica fulfill your beachgoing needs. A 10-screen movie-theater complex provides cinematic respite, and, the third floor is home to a play area for children and a small casino. Puerto Paraíso is connected to the newly opened Luxury Avenue, a string of designer boutiques offering top brands like Cartier, Coach, Fendi and Montblanc.
