CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico -- While the rest of Mexico is in turmoil, the good times keep on rollin' at Cabo San Lucas.
Landing at the tourist destination at the very southern tip of Baja California, it seems like you're in a parallel world. Here's an Applebee's, a downtown mall, a Home Depot and pristine beaches as far as you can see.
With only 4 percent unemployment, Cabo is safe compared to much of the rest of the country. And there are myriad recreational activities, from snorkeling with the dolphins to zip lining over the foamy waves of the Sea of Cortez, but there also are unexplored areas to visit.
