If you need any more reasons than almost year-round sunshine to head to Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, then find out what else awaits you in Cabo.
Rebuilt Luxury Outpost Hilton Los Cabos
In the middle of the two towns that make up Los Cabos – the more touristy and rowdier Cabo San Lucas, and the sleepier San Jose del Cabo – lies beachfront resort Hilton Los Cabos it was the only hotel in the region that retained its entire staff through the rebuilding process while helping 36 employees rebuild their own homes.
The multi-million dollar transformation includes reimagined restaurant concepts, including a swim-up bar, a subzero tequila and mezcal bar and a 9,700-square feet holistic spa and movement studio. Be forewarned, with all 375 rooms having ocean views and balconies, two breathtaking infinity pools and one of the only swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, you may find you never want to leave the property during your vacation.
Desert Farm-to-Table Flora Field Kitchen
When you think of Mexican beach towns, farm-to-table dining might not be the first thing that comes to mind. While Cabo might be more known for sea and sand, this tip of the Baja Peninsula also has deep farming roots.
One of the best places to see (and taste) this is Flora Farm, a 10-acre organic farm off the tourist trail in the foothills of the Sierra de La Laguna Mountains. Flora Farm grows fresh heirloom vegetables and humanely raises livestock for Flora Field Kitchen, its alfresco family-style dining experience that features homemade ingredients—everything comes directly from the farm from the meat to the fresh-baked bread. After you feast on the generous portions order another Farmarita, Flora Farm’s heirloom carrot version of a margarita, while you enjoy the nightly live music from the restaurant’s cozy communal tables.
Sky High Adventures at Wild Canyon
There’s more to do in Cabo than basking on the beach, so don’t miss a chance to explore the striking dessert landscapes in this region. Get a bird’s-eye view of the desert walking along one of the world’s longest wooden suspension bridges at Wild Canyon. Or for more of an adrenaline rush, take an ATV through the canyon’s rugged terrain and back across the 1,083-foot long bridge or soar above the palm trees on the eight-line zip line course.
Gallery District’s Art-Filled Streets
If you’re looking for a dose of culture versus another evening of beachside margaritas (although, some nights those work just fine), head to the Gallery District of historic San Jose del Cabo. This growing art scene celebrating Mexican art has become the cultural cornerstone of Cabo in recent years. You won’t see your typical generic touristy art here; the Gallery District’s charming cobblestone streets are filled with high-end fine art painting, sculpture, photography and folk art that attract international art communities and sell for a pretty peso, too.
