Jutting into the Pacific, the Baja California peninsula is a place of contrasts. Down the middle are the granite peaks of the Peninsula Ranges, cactus-spiked desert makes up much of the inland area, while beautiful golden beaches fringe the coastline. You’ll be heading to its greener southern half, Baja California Sur, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet rare and majestic marine life, explore bohemian beach towns, and hike to desert oases.
When you stay in Cabo San Lucas, you want to be in the heart of the action. This hotel puts you there – in bright, stylish rooms overlooking the marina. Watch the sunset over the hills to the west from your private balcony, and – if you have time between trips to the beach – look after yourself at the Aura spa, or the gleaming fitness center.
Five minutes’ walk from the beach, this hip hotel feels special. Yes, the rooftop pool, with clean architectural lines, and the restaurant with vaulted brick ceilings help. But it’s the little details that make it – details such as the potted trees to provide lounging shade in the sunny central courtyard, or the coffee makers in the cool, contemporary rooms. Lucky you, getting two nights here.
Tiki-style poolside bar; covered cabanas overlooking the sparkling Sea of Cortez; zingingly fresh food (and cocktails) – this is easy-breezy beachside Mexico at its best. Spend your downtime tucking into citrusy ceviche, sunbathing by the cool blue sea, or just kicking back in a hammock beneath the shade of palm trees. Or just catch up on sleep in your clean, bright, air-conditioned room, the choice is yours.
