It may begin with the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas, but Mexico’s destination of Los Cabos is so much more. It’s a place to find authenticity, to find a different side of Mexico you may not have discovered.
So if you’re here looking for Cabo San Lucas, what you’ll find is that you’re getting two destinations for the price of one.
That’s because this is actually a pair of getaways: first, you have authentic, charming San Jose del Cabo; then you have Cabo San Lucas, the party capital of the peninsula, always energetic and bustling.
For us, the way to experience Los Cabos is to stay at one of the top Cabo San Lucas resorts, and then use your hotel as a jumping point to experience both destinations.
So whether you’re in search of a party atmosphere or simply a relaxing seaside retreat, “Los Cabos” likely has what you’re looking for on its perch at the far corner of Baja California Sur.
Here are the Cabo San Lucas resorts you’re looking for.
One & Only Palmilla
Few global brands do luxury quite as well as One & Only, thanks to a hospitality philosophy that’s all about breezy, tranquil, effortless luxury. And that’s exactly what you find at One & Only Palmilla, set on a prime perch on one of the area’s few truly swimmable beaches and boasting spectacular views of the Sea of Cortez. And then there’s the spectacular food, led by Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Seared.
Esperanza an Auberge Resort
Auberge is a name that immediately brings to mind gourmet cuisine, high-level wine and cool, gracious service. The company’s Esperanza outpost in Cabo San Lucas does just that, with a stunning location in between a pair of bluffs that also features the only private beach in the area.
The Resort at Pedregal
There isn’t really anything like this place in Mexico, at least not in Cabo San Lucas. From the country’s only privately-owned tunnel, which whisks you to your luxurious check-in to the best spa in the area, this resort, a mix of rooms and suites, does everything exceptionally well.
Las Ventanas al Paraiso, a Rosewood Resort
The design is the party piece at this Rosewood signature in Cabo San Lucas, with a charming, truly beautiful decor that oozes Mexican authenticity. The location is also terrific, smack in the middle of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas.
JW Marriott Los Cabos
JW Marriott tends to execute its Mexico hotels rather well, and this is no exception. Set on the beach in San Jose del Cabo (and recently renovated), it’s great for both leisure travel and meetings. Our suggestion? Go for the Griffin Club rooms, which mean extra amenities like a movie theater and a special club-only pool.
As you can see, there are a host of great Cabo San Lucas resorts, all geared toward the discerning traveler.
