After all, Kristen famously said, "What happens in Cabo, stays in Cabo." The second thing that comes to mind is the amazing food.

The Office is arguably one of the most well known restaurants in all of Cabo. It's so well known that even my 6th grade Family Consumer Science teacher recommended it to my family.
