I’m not gonna lie, when I was first invited to this eatery in Midtown Miami I wasn’t too excited. The fact that it wasn’t in the infamous South Beach caught was a turnoff; but I finally decided to take the trip and surprisingly enjoyed my time away from hectic SoBe.

When people picture Los Cabos, they tend to think about spring break and drunken debauchery. But as I discovered on a recent trip down, there is much more going on than a lively bar scene where the Sea of Cortés meets the Pacific Ocean. Although Cabo San Lucas is the more well-known of the two Cabos, I found San Jose del Cabo to be more quaint and inviting. The whole town has a homey, communal feel to it and around every corner there is a cool art gallery or delicious restaurant to discover.

Here’s how to plan the perfect picnic. Just don’t forget the bug spray!

One of them is to eat in bed while watching television." Mendes told Fox News, "It sounds kind of gross, but I absolutely love it."

Between working a nine-to-five and picking up the tots from school, you barely have time to make a proper meal for the fam. Well, why don’t you enlist the help of your kids in the kitchen? Not only will you spend quality time with him (and gain an extra hand in making dinner), but you’ll also teach him valuable lessons along the way.

Most people don’t recognize all of the similarities between the Spanish Caribbean and other islands in the area, like Jamaica. But both in culture and food, we have a common history. Did you know that Jamaica was colonized by Spain for hundreds of years before the island was taken over by the British? A large part of the reason that the Spaniards were defeated had to do with the Maroons, a community of escaped slaves who fought for the British in return for their freedom and an autonomous government.
