Mexican cuisine is famous all over the world for its meats, salsas and flavors, but traditional Mexican desserts are equally delicious and mouth watering. One bite of a churro or scoop of arroz con leche and you will instantly fall in love with authentic Mexican desserts that Cabo has to offer. Never overlook the dessert section at a Mexican restaurant, and do not be afraid to try out some of the easy Mexican dessert recipes in your own kitchen. Rich chocolates and warm and delicious cinnamon notes make these the best Mexican desserts in Cabo you could ever have.

Here are the mexican desserts to taste on your Cabo food tour:


Churros are one of the most traditional Mexican desserts and they are pretty easy to be found in Cabo. Dough is cut into long rolls, deep fried, and coated in cinnamon sugar. Similar to a doughnut, they are tasty and warm all on their own, but dipping them in chocolate sauce or filling them with caramel, fruit compote, or a sweet glaze is the perfect way to make them even sweeter and more delicious. 


This creamy, caramel dessert originally hails from Spain, and it is an indulgent gluten free Mexican dessert. Eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla are whipped together and baked into the custard flan. With its buttery soft density and rich caramel flavor, it is one of the best and most favorite Mexican desserts.

Tres Leches Cake

It is one of the easy Mexican dessert recipes, three different milks combine to create the moistest and smoothest cake you have ever tasted: tres leches cake. Evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream are the heart of this recipe, and as the cake soaks up all the creaminess, it becomes sweet and soft.

Mexican Hot Chocolate

If you are looking for a simple gluten free Mexican dessert, reach for a warm mug of Mexican hot chocolate. It is also one of the easy Mexican dessert recipes perfect for a chilly evening. Simply dissolve a tablet of Mexican hot chocolate in warm milk over the stove, and then mix it all together in a blender for extra foaminess. A sprinkle of cinnamon on top enhances the deep chocolate flavor. Using low-fat milk makes this one of the healthy Mexican desserts.


One of the traditional Mexican desserts during the Lenten season, capirotada is similar to bread pudding. Rolls of bread are soaked in a syrup made from sugary piloncillo, cloves, and cinnamon before being baked with nuts, seeds, raisins, and other dried fruits. It is recommendable to eat it with a glass of milk.

Pan de Muerto

While pan de muerto is one of the best Mexican desserts, you can only find it in stores during the month leading up to Day of the Dead which is November 2nd. The sweet bread is flavored with orange zest and coated with butter and sugar. The cross of bones on top symbolizes the circle of life, making it one of the authentic Mexican desserts for Day of the Dead set in the altar of our lovely ones every year to honor their memories.

Arroz con Leche

Arroz con leche is a classic gluten free Mexican dessert. This rice pudding is a light yet flavorful dessert. Depending on the type of milk you use, this can also be one of the healthy Mexican desserts you opt for. Cinnamon is the classic spice, but you can also try out other toppings and even mix in raisins. 


When it comes to healthy Mexican desserts, paletas are the sweetest option. These authentic Mexican desserts are made with fresh fruits frozen together into a popsicle. With the natural flavors of mango, cucumber, pineapple, lime, and berries, paletas are a healthy and refreshing treat on a hot afternoon. As you wander the streets of Mexico, it’s not hard to find a paleteria with a wide variety of flavor combinations.

Carrot Cake

Everyone loves a good carrot cake, anyone who disagrees clearly has not eaten carrot cake. Paired with a refreshing cream sauce and hints of nuts to provide the perfect level of crunchiness. This carrot cake will make you want to return to Cabo just to have a chance to have it one more time.
