If you’re planning your next tropical adventure, we have a top-notch destination for your consideration: Los Cabos. This A-list-adored Mexican hotspot is known for its epic beaches, wicked food scene, and luxe hotels. But surprisingly, it continues to stay laid-back and authentic.
Scroll down to get the inside scoop on where to stay, eat and play and book your picture-perfect holiday ASAP.
We recommend booking a room at the One&Only Palmilla, which is unequivocally one of the most luxurious resorts in Mexico. Tucked away in an enclave on the cape of the Baja Peninsula, this first-class destination offers equal parts isolation and indulgence. Expect panoramic ocean views, bespoke Mexican architecture, comfortable rooms, a state-of-the-art wellness centre and spa and a level of service unrivaled anywhere in the world.
Some people travel to escape the daily grind and relax. Some seek action and adventure. For others, they’re motivated by their taste buds. While Los Cabos can cater to all of these desires, the epic food scene is sure to satiate your appetite. Restaurants serve up traditional Mexican fare, including delicious tacos, fresh accouterments (like salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole and queso), skilled preparations of ceviches, and cocktails laden with fresh fruit and local flavours. Be sure to check out culinary hotspots SEARED, Flora’s Field Kitchen, Suviche, Aqua By Larbi, Edith’s and The Office.
A visit to Los Cabos would not be complete without seeing famous El Arco rock formation (pictured above) on a boat tour. Although we recommend unplugging on holiday, having a camera (or your phone) at the ready is a must for this landmark. And while you’re on the water, catch a lift to picturesque Lover’s Beach, which is reachable only by boat.
If that isn’t enough to satisfy your Instagram feed, there are plenty of gorgeous sandy beaches along the coastline, where you can snorkel, swim, or relax in the sun.
Los Cabos is also a world-renowned surfing hotspot for novices and pros alike. Popular breaks include Acapulquito, La Pastora, and Monuments.
And if you want a dose of culture, you can’t miss the local Saturday markets. We recommend meandering through the markets and checking out the gorgeous architecture and small street food vendors.
