Stay at Esperanza
Perched above the fabled Sea of Cortez, Esperanza meanders invitingly across the rock face. Intimacy is plentiful regardless of room choice, and an indoor-outdoor culture dominates the vibe. Add to this a rich local feel that works to balance the untamed natural side.You could start your day in sync with the executive chef, in a private workshop exploring traditional Baja flavours. Your afternoons can be spent on land or at sea. Horseback riding along the coast or whale watching, which will it be? Thursday nights are reserved for dining at cliffside Cocina del Mar, followed by live music and fireworks on the oceanfront patio.
Only a 40-minute drive from Los Cabos Airport, Esperanza enjoys a serene location overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Set across 17 lush acres, it is based just outside the town of Cabo San Lucas. Regular shuttles depart for newer sister property Chileno Bay, where guests can utilise facilities and charge to their room at either resort.
The boutique comprises just 57 stays, including 16 suites. All abodes are stylish and spacious, featuring authentic Mexican artwork and immersive sea views. Each also comes with private balconies housing idling hammocks or plunge pools.
Who is it for
Children of all ages are welcome, though only one child can be permitted per room. It is also important to note that the main infinity pool is for adult use only, therefore families with young kids especially may prefer elsewhere.
Facilities & activities
A whopping five swimming pools, multiple tennis courts, a gym, spa, yoga studio and private beach are all at your disposal. A wealth of activities also await, from cooking and painting classes to tequila tastings. Meanwhile, four dynamic restaurants mix freshly-caught seafood fare with local Baja flavours.
