A Legacy of Luxury: The History of Hacienda Beach Club and Residences in Cabo San Lucas

A Legacy of Luxury: The History of Hacienda Beach Club and Residences in Cabo San Lucas

For generations, this property has played host to Hollywood royalty, from John Wayne and the Rat Pack to Raquel Welch and Reese Witherspoon. Its owners over the years have included three of the area’s most historically important figures. Its excelsior-like evolution – from palm-shaded retreat to five-star enclave – epitomizes the growth of Cabo San Lucas as a tourist destination. And more than 50 years after its birth, it remains the cynosure of luxury in Cabo San Lucas.

In the Duke’s day, it was called the Hotel Hacienda. It was the brainchild of Abelardo “Rod” Rodriguez, son of a Mexican president and husband to an actress who twice danced with Fred Astaire in films. Rodriguez built Baja California Sur’s first fly-in fishing resort, Rancho Las Cruces near La Paz, as well as Los Cabos’ first benchmark lodging, Hotel Palmilla (now One&Only Palmilla).

But Hacienda may have been his masterwork, a gorgeous seaside getaway in the years when the hotels in Cabo San Lucas could be counted on one hand:  Finisterra, Hacienda, Mar de Cortez, Solmar Suites. That was the list. But there were two other resorts of note at that time, both located in what is now called the Tourist Corridor, the coastal stretch that connects cape cities San Lucas and San Jose. One was Rodriguez’s Hotel Pamilla, the other Bud Parr’s Hotel Cabo San Lucas.

Rodriguez, Parr, Luis Bulnes (Solmar Suites), Luis Coppola (Finisterra) and Don Koll were the faces of Cabo San Lucas development, the architects behind the transformation from fishing village to international tourist destination. Newport Beach-based developer Koll, among his many other accomplishments, was the man who brought links legend Jack Nicklaus to Cabo, spearheading the Los Cabos golf boom with world-class designs at Palmilla and Cabo del Sol.

Three of those five project pioneers, those titans of the local tourist age, helmed Hacienda during its first half-century as San Lucas’ luxury lodging non pareil. Rodriguez built the original hotel in 1963 and sold it to Parr in 1981. Koll bought it from Parr’s heirs in 2005, and transformed it from Hotel Hacienda to Hacienda Beach Club and Residences, from upscale seaside resort to a gated enclave of luxury villas.

What attracted so many important and influential people to this iconic property?

The answer is the first law of real estate:  location, location, location.

Simply put, there is no better address in Cabo San Lucas. Hacienda sits at the very foot of Medano Beach, presiding over a full quarter mile of golden sands, with commanding views of Bahia San Lucas and the evocatively shaped granitic monuments at Land’s End. Villas and residences are mere steps from acres of privacy on the area’s biggest and most popular beach, a stone’s throw from the marina – which terminates at Medano Beach – and a five minute walk from downtown shopping, dining and nightlife.

Today, the five star service, accommodations and amenities synonymous with Hacienda Beach Club and Residences are available to owners, or as vacation rentals for those seeking the ultimate in resort style living. Two and three bedroom residences and expansive beachfront villas showcase fashionable contemporary décor in a seamless flow of elegant indoor and outdoor spaces.

The amenities, like the views, are world-class, and range from an infinity pool and kid’s club to concierge and catering services and spa and fitness facilities. And the onsite restaurant, Hacienda Cocina y Cantina, is considered one of the best in Los Cabos, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner menus filled with traditional regional Mexican specialty dishes and hand-crafted cocktails. Prefer a light nosh? The Spa Café serves up healthy snacks, espresso style coffee drinks and fresh fruit smoothies.

Christmas in Cabo San Lucas: Seasonal Cheer at Land’s End

Christmas in Cabo San Lucas: Seasonal Cheer at Land’s End

There is something very special about the holidays, particularly in Mexico, where the festive season persists for close to two months and includes many holy days that are not commonly celebrated in the U.S. It is a period of frequent fiestas – so much so that the month long holiday period between December 12, the day honoring the Virgin of Guadalupe, and January 6, the remembrance of Los Tres Reyes (the three wise men), is only half-jokingly referred to as the Guadalupe – Reyes marathon. But despite the plethora of parties that accompany holiday-themed events, the Christmas season in Mexico is in large part a time of devout observances and intimate gatherings with family and friends.

That will certainly be true this year, as Cabo San Lucas, and indeed much of Baja California Sur, rebounds from the worst storm ever to strike the peninsula. Although much of the damages inflicted by Hurricane Odile – the category 4 storm that made landfall on September 14, with winds ripping through Los Cabos at up to 165 miles per hour – have, thanks to the assistance of Mexican military, police and CFE (the national electric company) workers, been repaired, the Christmas season promises a much needed respite following months of rebuilding efforts.

For locals, this December offers a much needed time out for sober reflection and gratitude, affirmation of traditional religious values, and celebration of triumph over adversity. For visitors, it’s a perfect time to bask in the winter warmth and beauty of Los Cabos, and to see how the holidays are observed south of the border.

The town square, Plaza Amelia Wilkes, is annually strung with enough holiday-themed ornaments and decorations to wrap the central gazebo in a veil of bright, carnivalesque colors. The plaza is also home to a large, lavishly bedecked Christmas tree, and a beautiful nativity scene (in Spanish, nacimiento) that is located near the natural  history musem’s whale skeleton exhibit (sadly short of bones post Odile). Sponsored programs and presentations are a holiday staple at the plaza, and include art, music, food tastings, and recreations of events surrounding the birth of Christ.

Nativity scenes are commonly displayed here, both publicly and privately, and in addition to the nacimiento at Plaza Amelia Wilkes, there is always an excellent display at Plaza Bonita near the Cabo San Lucas Marina. Beyond the lovely holiday decorations, however, the spirit of the season is expressed in the succession of holy days that stretch from the beginning of Las Posadas on December 16th through Candlemas on February 2nd. These religious holidays each have their own traditions and rituals, and for curious visitors, provide interesting insights into the Catholic core of Mexican culture.

Christmas in Cabo San Lucas

Las Posadas

Las Posadas last for nine days, from December 16th through the 24th, and commemorate the journey of Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Each night there are candlelit processions and reenactments, which culminate in house parties after admittance has been granted at the “inn.” The most important day of the season in Mexico is not Christmas, but Christmas Eve (Nochebuena). This is the last night of the posadas, and the birth of Christ is celebrated at midnight. Traditionally, families then attend a midnight mass, followed by dinner and presents. Christmas Day is quite low-key and leisurely, with most feasting on the leftovers (called recalentado) from the previous night’s dinner.

El Dia de los Santos Inocentes

Holy Innocents Day, also known as Childermas, is on December 28th, and is a remembrance of King Herod’s decree that all male infants in Bethlehem should be killed in order to eliminate the threat to his throne posed by the baby Jesus, whose birth he had learned of from the three wise men. The day is also celebrated as a Mexican version of April Fool’s Day, with jokes, pranks, tall tales, and elaborate hoaxes. One should greet all statements made on this day with a healthy amount of skepticism, and under no circumstances should money be lent, as tradition holds that any debts incurred on this day do not have to be honored.

Nochevieja

The relationship of New Year’s Eve to New Year’s Day is somewhat like that of Christmas Eve to Christmas, meaning the first day is given over to family dinners and celebrations, while the second day is for rest, relaxation and the enjoyment of leftovers.  After the dinner on New Year’s Eve, many people go out to enjoy the local parties and theme nights, which run the gamut from barefoot beachfront formals to masked carnivals. Fireworks are a staple of virtually every Mexican celebration, but the New Year in Cabo San Lucas is always greeted with a particularly dazzling display over Medano Beach. Once the clock strikes midnight, it is also traditional to eat twelve grapes, with the grapes representing good fortune for the next twelve months.

Christmas in Cabo San Lucas

Rosca de Reyes is a special bread made to celebrate Three Kings Day.

El Dia de los Tres Reyes

The three kings are better known to English speakers as the three wise men – Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar – who journeyed to Bethlehem with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.  As with Christmas Eve, this is a day for children to open presents, and for gatherings of friends and family. One of the signature treats associated with this holiday is a sweet bread called rosca de reyes. There is a miniature figure of the baby Jesus hidden inside the bread, and the person who finds it is expected to have a tamales party on Candlemas, February 2nd.

Candlemas marks the end of the long Christmas season in Cabo San Lucas, but one of the heights of the tourist season, as snowbirds flee frigid temperatures north of the border for sunshine, beaches, whale watching, golf, and other activities not normally associated with wintry cheer.

Ultimate Baja Playlist: The 5 Best Songs About Cabo San Lucas

Ultimate Baja Playlist: The 5 Best Songs About Cabo San Lucas

Sammy Hagar may have said it best  – “Land’s end, you have to see it/Ain’t no picture ever say it right” – but he’s not the only one to sing the praises of Cabo San Lucas.  The pleasures of life at Land’s End have been lauded by a host of famous musicians, including many of the hottest names on the contemporary country scene.

 

 

Cabo San Lucas by Toby Keith

Perhaps it was the 2003 duet by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffet, It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere, that proved country music’s compatibility with sultry sea breezes and golden sand beaches. What’s certain is that Cabo San Lucas has been a big beneficiary of this burgeoning subgenre of “permanent vacation” narratives extolling the simple pleasures of life in tropical latitudes. Oklahoma born singer-songwriter Toby Keith is a master of the form, and one of the biggest proponents of the Cabeño lifestyle in recent years. Stays in Mexico was his first nod to the area, but the baritone ballad Cabo San Lucas, off the 2008 album That Don’t Make Me A Bad Guy, is undoubtedly his best. The song perfectly captures the feeling of drifting down to the southernmost point of the 800 mile long Baja peninsula (and discovering you don’t ever want to leave): I’m leavin’ you this message and if you give a damn/And you wanna call me you know where I am/In Cabo, Cabo San Lucas/Way down in Mexico, way down in Cabo.

 

 

Beer in Mexico by Kenny Chesney

According to the liner notes for his album The Road and the Radio, country music superstar Kenny Chesney wrote Beer in Mexico while vacationing in Cabo, and hanging out with Sammy Hagar during the latter’s annual birthday bash at Cabo Wabo Cantina. The song peaked at 51 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart back in 2007, but has since become a classic of its kind, albeit with a bit of a twist on the standard “permanent vacation” narrative. Rather than being seen as a final destination, Mexico is posited as a sort of sun-soaked limbo: the kind of place where one can escape, regain some much needed perspective, and “Let the warm air melt these blues away.” The narrator, at a crossroads between getting married and settling down, or staying single and free, puts off any ultimate choice with the sensible decision to “Sit right here and have another beer in Mexico.”

 

 

A Lot to Learn About Livin’ by Easton Corbin

Easton Corbin likes to point out that the farming community he comes from in Florida is a long way from the swaying palm trees and bikini-filled beaches of Miami. But the popular country singer – his eponymous debut album featured two #1 hits, A Little More Country Than That and Roll With It – definitely understands the allure of scenic seaside getaway destinations: “Taxi driver took my two bags/He saw me lookin’ at my watch/He said, “You won’t need that here/’Cause time disappears/In paradise there ain’t no clocks.” While the above stanza is a semi-poetic summation of Cabo’s timeless appeal, You Got a Lot to Learn About Livin’s chorus suggests a long-time local explaining the area’s laid-back ethos to a recent arrival. “You got a lot to learn about livin’/It’s a different world down here/Our biggest problem’s decidin’ what fish we’re fryin’/Does it go with tequila or beer?”

 

 

Stays in Mexico by Toby Keith

Las Vegas gets a lot of publicity for promoting the “what happens here, stays here” philosophy, but such sentiments are taken for granted in Cabo San Lucas. The sea and oceanside playground – with its abundance of lively bars and clubs, and surfeit of romantic luxury resorts – has long been a haven for those who want to shake off their inhibitions, do things they’d never dream of back home. “His name was Steve, her name was Gina/They met at a bar called Cabo Wabo Cantina.” So begins Stays in Mexico, Toby Keith’s paean to whirlwind vacation romances. The song ends with the lovers at the airport, ready to return to their separate lives. But neither will ever forget the time ”They walked down to the beach and started drinking again/Jumped into the ocean for a dirty swim/One more margarita they were falling in love/One more is never enough.”

 

 

Cabo Wabo by Van Halen

No celebrity is more closely associated with Cabo San Lucas than Sammy Hagar. The former Montrose and Van Halen frontman famously sang of the town’s charms on the latter’s 1988 album OU812There’s a sleepy town as south of the border/If you go there once, you’ll be there twice/Lots of pretty girls, coming by the dozens/The white sand sure makes a tan look nice – two years before the band opened up a cantina with the same name as the song: Cabo Wabo. Hagar eventually bought out his erstwhile bandmates, and turned the place into one of the area’s most successful clubs. He still shows up for his annual birthday bashes (this year the concerts were moved to Las Vegas in the wake of Hurricane Odile), and to this day, no one evokes (or embodies) the town’s party hearty atmosphere quite like “The Red Rocker.”

Los Cabos Rebounding Quickly From Hurricane Odile

Los Cabos Rebounding Quickly From Hurricane Odile

Eleven days after Hurricane Odile made landfall in Los Cabos, it’s much easier to be optimistic about the area’s ability to bounce back quickly from the strongest storm ever to hit the Baja peninsula. Many shops and restaurants are now reopening in Cabo San Lucas, and thanks to determined efforts from Mexican military and resilient residents, the downtown area is beginning to look refreshingly familiar.

It’s quite amazing considering the initial devastation caused by the category 3 hurricane (she was category 4 at one point, but blessedly slowed down a bit before making landfall), which arrived locally on Sunday evening, September 14, with an average wind speed of 125 mph. Odile battered Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo until the wee hours of the morning, and went on to deliver widespread damages throughout many areas of Baja California Sur.

The sound of the wind as the storm tore through it very hard to describe, although it’s something no one who heard it will ever forget. The same goes for the sights. By midnight, entire tin roofs were blowing down the middle of Marina Boulevard, mature trees were pulled up by the roots or broken in half, cars were flipped over, glass was blown out everywhere…it was a terrifying spectacle.

And it looked even worse the next day. Returning to downtown Cabo San Lucas to survey the damage, it seemed as if a bomb had gone off. An ambitious filmmaker tasked with portraying the aftermath of a serious natural disaster would be hard pressed to come close to recreating the scene.

Los Cabos Rebounds Quickly From Hurricane Odile

But there was little time for local residents to take in the sights. Most were initially concerned with trying to repair the damages to their homes – if indeed they still had any – and adjust to life without any modern conveniences. All of Los Cabos was basically blown back into the 19th century. Buckets of water were filled from cisterns for makeshift showers, or from swimming pools or other sources to flush toilets. Candles were lit. Dinners were shared affairs, with neighbors pitching in supplies.

In retrospect, that is the thing I will remember most about Hurricane Odile: how generous so many people were, and how so many neighborhoods banded together to help and protect each other.

Los Cabos Rebounds Quickly From Hurricane Odile

Cleanup efforts in Cabo San Lucas. Image: Johnny Corona

Given that spirit and the huge amount of progress made with cleanup efforts, it’s easy to be optimistic as high tourist season approaches. Some rapidly approaching events, such as Cabo Comedy Festival and Sammy Hagar’s Birthday Bash, have been, respectively, postponed or cancelled. But Bisbee’s is proceeding with both its annual October fishing tournaments, Los Cabos Offshore and the lucrative Black & Blue, and the 3rd annual Los Cabos International Film Festival will take place as scheduled in early November.

Please feel free to visit.

Water World: Cabo Marine Show Celebrates 5th Anniversary

Water World: Cabo Marine Show Celebrates 5th Anniversary

Cabo Marine Show

The Cabo San Lucas Marina has long been the heart and soul of the Land’s End city. It’s the first stop for incoming cruise ship passengers; home to hotels, restaurants, and tourist shopping meccas Puerto Paraiso and Luxury Avenue; a seasonal home to luxury yachts; and the launch point for fishing charters, whale watching excursions, snorkel and dive trips, sunset sails, and the rest of the area’s world-class, water-based activities tours. But rarely is the marina the official center of the city’s attention, as it was last weekend, May 15 – 17, when the 5th annual Cabo Marine Show drew thousands of locals and visitors to Docks L-M-N at the IGA Marina, behind the Wyndham Cabo San Lucas Resort.

CMS2

Although only five years old, the Cabo Marine Show is already the longest running boat show in Mexico, and the most important nautical expo on the country’s Pacific Coast. Each year, it features the latest goods and services from some of the top names in the maritime industry, with dozens of booths set up along the marina boardwalk. But five years in, the show continues to evolve, and this year’s event saw a subtle shift in focus, with much of the attention turning to the new and used boat market, and the 20 plus boats and yachts on display in the water beyond the booths.

A host of big-name yacht brokers were on hand to show off their top seagoing listings, including Otaduy Yachts, United Yacht Sales, Emerald Pacific Yachts, Hallmark Yachts, Picante Sportfishing, La Paz Yachts, and Pisces Group Cabo. And Cabo Marine Show organizers were clearly interested in expanding upon the expo’s early success as a social networking platform and showcase for the premier purveyors of offshore gadgets and playthings, and moving the boats themselves into the spotlight.

“We are pleased to see that our boat show has been taking a constant and natural evolution from the traditional exhibitors on the floor to a more pronounced in-water display of both new and used vessels — which is the purpose of any boat show, departing from the usual convention center format to an in-water exhibit more similar to boat shows of international stature,” said Oscar Avalos, Director of MAA+Eventos Meetings and Conventions, which partnered with show founder and organizer Sergio Igartua.

CMS

10374103_10152076763972021_5979212319762831030_nDespite the millions of dollars worth of boat sales, however, the latest edition of Cabo Marine Show retained many of its familiar touches: live music enlivened the evening hours; VIP cocktail parties offered yacht club ambiance; wandering visitors made pit stops at marina drinking and dining landmarks like Solomon’s Landing, Baja Cantina and Tiki Bar; and of course a bevy of well-known vendors promoted their their latest products from booths set on prime waterfront real estate, from tropical sunglasses king Maui Jim to the Los Cabos Tourism Board and Bisbee’s, host of the world’s richest fishing tournament. Even a few local artists and artisans got in on the act, offering up nautical themed paintings and jewelry.

Five years is a significant anniversary, and the latest show was something of a landmark, not only in terms of Cabo Marine Show’s age and expanded focus, but its further entrenchment in the Los Cabos festival firmament. It’s now a fixture of the annual event calendar, and one of the key showcases of the the city’s de facto commercial center: the Cabo San Lucas Marina. Bisbee’s Black and Blue may still boast a higher profile, but the marlin tournament, at heart, is all about what’s lurking under the local waters. The Cabo Marine Show is about what floating on top, and where they call home.

Destination Dining: The Best Restaurants in Los Cabos

Destination Dining: The Best Restaurants in Los Cabos

Although seafood remains the once and future king of the Cabo culinary landscape—something that should come as no surprise in an area long heralded for its world-class fishing—the increased profile and popularity of the peninsula’s Baja Med cuisine, as well as the world-class wines now being produced in Valle de Guadalupe outside of Ensenada, have helped attract an influx of talented and creative chefs to the region, spearheading the development of what is quickly becoming one of Mexico’s most fertile culinary hotbeds.

These days, Los Cabos can claim as rich and diverse a dining scene as any area in Baja California, with top restaurants in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo featuring everything from Baja Med and regional Mexican cuisine to creative fusions and gourmet twists on international comfort food favorites like pastas and pizzas.

Many of the most renowned restaurants occupy privileged real estate at top area luxury resorts, of course, but visitors interested in exploring and experiencing the full spectrum of Los Cabos’ thriving dining scene will find first-class food and drink at a variety of price points, in locales as diverse as farm fields and rooftop aeries, and amidst atmospheres that range from button-down to barefoot casual.

Here are a few of our current favorites:

Farm fields and farm-fresh cocktails are among the many sensory delights at Flora’s Field Kitchen.

Flora’s Field Kitchen

Los Cabos’ finest farm-to-table dining experience can be found in the middle of a 10-acre organic field in the rolling foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna, just outside of San Jose del Cabo. That’s where Flora’s Field Kitchen serves up a memorable array of delicious dishes made from freshly-picked produce, and cured meats and eggs from the neighboring ranch. Did I mention they also bake their own breads (and incredible gourmet pizzas) in a wood-fired oven? Locals and discerning visitors alike flock to this bucolic eatery to feast on fresh seasonal fare, and to sip Farmaritas (margaritas made with heirloom carrots) and other fresh juices and cocktails at the adjoining Farm Bar.

For the signature Voila experience, stop by on a Friday evening for live jazz, and pair your lobster burrito or quiche Lorraine with a Voila martini, an addictive cosmo/sex on the beach style sipper made with vodka, peach liqueur, Cointreau, and cranberry juice.

Gourmet pizzas are a perennial favorite at Bar Esquina.

Gourmet pizzas, Mediterranean fusions and fine dining standards like lamb chops and prime rib headline the offerings from the restaurant’s open kitchen, and are ably complemented by creative, hand-crafted cocktails from Esquina’s talented bar staff. The bests seats in the house aren’t at the chic 17-seat marble bar, however, but in the patio dining area, where groups like the Spanish-flavored Mala Rumba provide some of the area’s best live music.

Have a Baja Moment! Go Whale Watching in Los Cabos

Have a Baja Moment! Go Whale Watching in Los Cabos

Whale watching is one of the most popular seasonal activities in Los Cabos. Each year roughly 10,000 whales migrate to the warm waters of Baja Sur to breed, from humpbacks and gray whales to blues, fins, sperms, and orcas. Humpbacks and gray whales are the most commonly sighted cetaceans in the waters off Los Cabos, and humpbacks are the unquestioned stars of most local whale watching tours. The season officially runs from December 15 to April 15, although whales often begin arriving as early as November, and frequently begin the long journey to their summer homes by March. During the winter whale watching season, virtually every seaworthy craft in Los Cabos offers some sort of whale watching excursion, from small pangas to enormous luxury yachts.

Humpbacks make the world’s longest mammalian migration, traveling over 10,000 miles from the Bering Sea to their breeding grounds in Baja Sur. Certainly, they are the most photogenic of whales, indulging in a variety of flamboyant behaviors, including spectacular breaches (lifting their enormous bodies almost completely out of the water), spyhopping (lifting their heads out of the water for a quick look around) and lobtailing (smacking the water with their tail flukes). The best photo opportunities for tourists are typically of humpback whales, but grays are also seen regularly. Grays migrate to their traditional breeding grounds in Magdalena Bay, about 170 miles up the Pacific coast from Cabo San Lucas, and often do a bit of Land’s End sightseeing before leaving for the summer.

Whale Watching in Los Cabos

A breaching humpback is the highlight of any whale watching excursion.

Since the whales were born in Mexico, it’s is commonly joked that they’re Mexican citizens, and certainly the leviathans do enjoy some legal protections, particularly in regards to the approach distance of tour boats. Small, fast boats like Zodiacs are probably the best way to see whales at relatively close range, although visitors prone to mal de mer may prefer a more stable or luxurious ride. There are several fine sailboats and catamarans offering whale watching cruises out of Cabo San Lucas, and these craft are equipped to provide fine food, fine wines and cocktails, and a host of other amenities during their daily cruises.

The top tour options for fast boats, sailboats, and luxury cruisers are listed below:

Whale Watching in Los Cabos

A spyhopping humpback provides a great photo opportunity for guests aboard one of Cabo Adventures’ Apex inflatables.

Cabo Adventures

It should come as no surprise that the area’s premier outdoor adventure company offers some of the most memorable whale watching tours. Cabo Adventures uses inflatable Apex boats, and their experienced captains have the speed and maneuverability to anticipate the movements of whales and get their guests some great photo opportunities. For those who want to get as close as possible, this is the way to go. Bilingual guides are on hand to assist in identifications of whales and other local marine life, and the photo safaris also include hydrophone listening technology.

Whale Watching in Los Cabos

Want to whale watch in style? Charter a sailboat from Cabo Sails.

Cabo Sails

Cabo San Lucas offers great sailing outside its protected bay, and there is no more elegant way to whale watch than with sails up and Champagne flutes in hand. Cabo Sails is the top sailboat charter operation in the area, with 28′ to 44′ food cruisers, and expert captains and bilingual crew knowledgeable in both whales and sails. See all the local landmarks en route, enjoy delicious appetizers and fruit and vegetable platters, sip fine wines or premium cocktails, and settle in for an unforgettable whale watching experience.

Whale Watching in Los Cabos

Looking for comfort and a smooth ride? The triple-decker catamaran Caborey is the top option.

Caborey

If you’re used to traveling in high style, it’s hard to beat the Caborey experience. This enormous triple-decked catamaran offers the best dinner cruises in Baja – lavish five course meals and Las Vegas style floorshows – and their whale watching tours provide such a smooth, easy ride that even the most landlubbery of guests will be able to enjoy the magnificent sights, which not only include leviathans of the deep, but Land’s End and Lover’s Beach. Whale watching tours are offered three days a week during the season, and feature a delicious breakfast buffet and an open bar with over 50 types of tropical drinks.

Have a Baja Moment! Tequila Tasting in Los Cabos

Have a Baja Moment! Tequila Tasting in Los Cabos 

Despite an explosion of world-class wines in recent years from Mexico’s best viticultural area, Valle de Guadalupe near Ensenada, and an ongoing craft beer boom spearheaded by talented brewmasters in the border city of Tijuana, tequila remains the most popular and celebrated alcoholic drink for visitors to Baja California. Made from blue agave nourished in the blue volcanic soils of the mainland state of Jalisco, the country’s signature distilled spirit has launched a thousand cocktails, including popular umbrella garnished quaffs like margaritas, palomas and tequila sunrises. But it’s at its best straight up, with all of its personality on display. And whether you prefer the freshness and elemental force of blanco-style tequilas, or the smoothness and complexity of barrel-aged treasures in the reposado, añejo or muy añejo styles, Baja, and Los Cabos in particular, boasts a number of great showcases for this uniquely Mexican spirit.

Tequila Tasting in Los Cabos

Pancho’s claims to have the world’s largest tequila collection, with over 500 labels represented.

Pancho’s Restaurant and Tequila Bar

Pancho’s is located in the heart of downtown Cabo San Lucas, and this lively and colorful cantina serves up a host of great regional Mexican specialty dishes, as well as excellent array of mesquite grilled meats and seafood. But what truly sets this place apart is an unmatched collection of tequilas. Pancho’s claims to have the largest such collection in the world, and regardless of whether this boast is true – and I suspect that it is – visitors can spend the better part of a two week vacation sampling the rare and wonderful liquid delights on tap, which include over 500 separate tequila and mezcal labels from the Mexican mainland.

Tequila Tasting in Los Cabos

Habanero’s selection of over 120 premium tequilas includes this rare bottle of Chinaco Negro.

Habanero’s Gastro Grill

Restaurateur and chef Tadd Chapman is responsible for two of San Jose del Cabo’s best restaurants: Don Sanchez and Habanero’s Gastro Grill. But fine food is only part of the allure at these benchmark eateries. Don Sanchez has one of the most impressive wine collections in all of Baja – take-out sales are available from the onsite wine store, with sommeliers on hand to provide expert guidance – and Habanero’s has a well-earned reputation as a mecca for seasoned tequila tasters. And while Habanero’s shelves may not hold quite as many bottles as those at Pancho’s, the top shelf options are every bit as impressive, with over 120 premium labels represented.

Tequila Tasting in Los Cabos

Drew Deckman may be the best chef in Los Cabos, and his restaurant in San Jose del Cabo also boasts a superb collection of artisanal mezcals.

Deckman’s at Havana

It’s easy to rave about Drew Deckman’s cooking. The Michelin star winning chef and slow food guru may be the most creative culinary crafstman in Baja, reinventing his menu on a daily basis to show off only the freshest local and seasonal ingredients. Luckily for aficionados of fermented and distilled beverages, Deckman is also dedicated to providing spectacular pairing options. In addition to a superb wine list headlined by honest, terroir-driven Mexican wines, and a delicious witbier made in partnership with Tijuana craft beer specialist Agua Mala, Deckman’s also offers potent pours from top tequila producers, and one of the region’s best collections of artisanal mezcals.
