Introduction: Resort Hopping In Astounding Los Cabos

Welcome to my next vacation report collection, which will consist of various critiques of inns in Los Cabos. I’m hoping to crank out these critiques fairly promptly, as I’m admittedly a little bit at the rear of in this article.

Why we traveled to Los Cabos

As I defined in a put up this spring, we’re at the moment living in resorts, and have been for rather a when. Very long story brief, we’re ready for our (seriously delayed) new dwelling to be ready, and this has appeared like the finest possibility all around (I went into a bit far more detail in a prior post, so test that out).

For the most portion we have just been hopping all around the United States, expending a couple months at a time in many towns, but previously this year we made a decision to go to Los Cabos for an prolonged period of time. Why?

Very well, in July 2020 there was an incredible factors redemption opportunity at The Cape Los Cabos, which is a Thompson hotel. For 50,000 Globe of Hyatt points per evening you could e-book a 3 bed room villa that retailed for $3,700 for each night time. So I experienced speculatively booked that for this spring.

As the cancelation deadline loomed we were being heading again and forth on whether or not or not to cancel our continue to be. Ultimately we determined to not only continue to keep our reservation, but we figured we may well as properly stay for an prolonged interval if we were being there now. In the conclusion we booked 5 lodges, and stayed there for all over a few months.

Wherever we stayed in Los Cabos

In the course of our time in Los Cabos we stayed at 5 unique lodges — three were booked with points, and two weren’t affiliated with any details applications. Especially, we stayed at:

  • The Waldorf Astoria Pedregal
  • The Cape, a Thompson Lodge
  • Solaz, a Marriott Luxury Collection resort
  • Zadun, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve
  • Four Seasons at Costa Palmas

I’ll be examining these lodges in fantastic detail in the coming days (I’m even now going back and forth on whether or not to overview Solaz, specified that it mysteriously shut, and there is no timeline for it reopening — allow me know if this evaluation would desire you, or if it would be a squander of time).

We felt very harmless in Los Cabos

This is considerably less of an difficulty now with widespread vaccinations, but this spring there ended up a great deal of concerns in normal about the “safety” of going to Mexico in conditions of coronavirus (being from Florida, it is not definitely a problem I have an understanding of, but…). I have to give the Los Cabos tourism sector substantial credit rating for how effectively issues ended up taken care of. Due to the fact the start off of the pandemic, I have not felt safer traveling any where than Los Cabos.

Between other items:

  • At the time hotels have been capped at 50% of capability, while in fact resorts ended up emptier than that
  • The safeguards in put had been truly unequalled everybody from lodge workers to taxi drivers get the job done masks appropriately, without exception, there were being entire hand sanitizer stations all about the area, etcetera.
  • If you’re heading to be traveling, you simply cannot beat staying in a spot where by nearly all eating and pursuits are focused on the outdoors, so you can continue to be listed here for weeks without the need of even getting tempted to consume within
  • The lodges took outstanding additional precautions for instance, at one resort they informed us that they proactively examination all staff members for coronavirus each individual 7 days, even though at yet another hotel the servers would use hand sanitizer every single time they received to your table and ended up about to serve you something (admittedly this is more for exhibit than anything else, but however)

It was my initial time in Los Cabos, and I liked it

Unbelievably more than enough, this was my 1st time checking out Los Cabos. I’ve been to Mexico various situations, such as Mexico City (wonderful city), Cancun/Mayakoba (currently being from Florida it has little charm to me, given that the weather and beach locations experience equivalent, and there aren’t quite a few awesome resorts there), and Puerto Vallarta (I prefer it to Cancun, but really don’t sense like I need to return).

Effectively, I have to say that I totally adored Los Cabos, and would return in a heartbeat. It could just be 1 of my 10 most loved locations in the earth. Let me clarify.

Let us start with the negatives:

  • Los Cabos in all probability is not the most culturally intriguing place in the environment, but instead you appear below to loosen up heck, when you travel between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, it is generally just a highway with one vacation resort right after another
  • Los Cabos is a beach destination, still the ocean in most of Los Cabos is also tough to swim
  • As is the scenario in considerably of Mexico, where’s a frustrating 34% tax & company charge on every little thing, which can make the expense of matters add up swiftly (the magnificence of redeeming factors for lodge stays is that you at the very least really do not have to pay that on your home charge)

But then there are the items that I adore about Los Cabos, which significantly outweigh any negatives:

  • Los Cabos has limitless luxurious lodges to pick out from, most of which are extremely very good by brand name criteria the choices also preserve growing, and there are loads of new lodges less than construction, ranging from a Park Hyatt to a St. Regis
  • The local climate can not be defeat — it rains very rarely, there is a lot of sunshine, and although it can get sizzling, it’s not as humid as in Cancun
  • I love the juxtaposition of the landscape, as you fundamentally have a coastal desert area with astounding Pacific Ocean views and beach locations
  • The provider in Los Cabos is extraordinary — I’ve never ever been somewhere in North The us with this sort of continually genuinely welcoming company
  • The meals is fantastic — I enjoy Mexican food stuff in basic, and Los Cabos has some of sweet restaurants serving wonderful meals
  • Whilst the ocean largely isn’t swimmable (which I’d look at to be a good, due to the fact I never want to get in the shark’s house), the beach locations are mainly beautiful, and good for strolling
  • There are some interesting actions in the spot that you will not come across at lots of other beach front places, ranging from whale viewing (it was my initially time, and it was awesome), to ATVing in the desert, to swimming with whale sharks in La Paz
  • Typically when I go to a calming desired destination I opt for to vacation for 24 hours and deal with a 12 hour time modify, but there was some thing so great about flying just a couple several hours away and not acquiring to deal with jetlag

So yeah, purely for leisure, I feel Los Cabos could possibly just be a single of my favorite spots in the world. Many of us have been to wonderful bucket checklist destinations like the Maldives, for instance, which are possibly more unique and picturesque. Nevertheless, there’s anything oh-so-nice about not dealing with 24 hours of traveling (even if it is in initial or company course), speedboat or seaplane transfers, awful jetlag, very lousy warmth and bugs, etcetera.

Base line

Previously this year we spent a number of months in Los Cabos, and experienced the chance to check out out five extremely unique accommodations. I glance ahead to examining them, due to the fact for the most element they have been exceptional, and I just can’t recommend a trip to Los Cabos plenty of.

I just can’t think this was my first excursion to Los Cabos, but it unquestionably will not be my last. Speak about a desired destination with friendly service, brilliant hotels, excellent food stuff, and amazing beach locations and sights.
