Check out Mulege, a pretty town on the Sea of Cortez, or any of the small villages north of Cabo San Lucas. You can stay at a luxury resort for $89 a night or browse Craigslist, VRBO.com (Vacation Rentals by Owner) or Airbnb.com to live alongside locals in a house or condo. You might find yourself in love with a nearby paradise.
