As an American, I am treated equally here, as everybody is given a fair shake. If you don’t flaunt yourself as a millionaire and you are just a normal person on the street, you will not be treated differently. The service industry, of course, loves the foreigners. I get upset sometimes when I go to an expensive restaurant in Cabo San Lucas and the prices are all in dollars instead of pesos.
In La Paz, they have a music school and they have a Grammy Award winning trumpet player here and he is now starting a big band. He gets concerts and plays, too. In Cabo, they have rappers, stars, etc. The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders come and do their annual calendar photo-shoot in Cabo San Lucas and of course the golf also brings in a lot of very wealthy people but everybody is given a fair shake. I don’t see any discrimination here.
However, I have seen more discrimination in some of the places on the Pacific coast of the mainland in Mexico such as Mazatlan, Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, etc. than I see in La Paz or in Los Cabos. Maybe that is because those areas are an extension of the state of California in a way.
