Romance in Los Cabos

Romance in Los Cabos

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, thoughts turn to romance. Especially in a dazzling desert-meets-sea destination where all the ingredients for intimacy and togetherness are on full display. 

Here’s a few of our favorite romantic activities in Los Cabos and at Pueblo Bonito Resorts. 

Massage. Armonia Spa has excelled in its mission to offer rejuvenating treatments designed to relax and revive stressed-out guests. From deep tissue massages and smoothing body scrubs to detoxifying organic rituals and healing body wraps, the goal is self-renewal and an enhancement of each spa-goer’s well-being. The magic elements that set Armonia Spas apart? First, expert practitioners who employ the most advanced massage techniques to obtain superior benefits for emotional and spiritual healing. Second, Armonia Spas’ exclusive signature product line containing natural, organically grown ingredients, several of them derived from plants native to Baja California Sur. Armonia Spa is available at Pueblo Bonito’s Pacifica, Sunset Beach, Montecristo and Rose properties.

Lover’s Beach (Playa del Amor). Accessible by water taxi or glass-bottom boat from Cabo San Lucas marina, or from Medano Beach on the doorstep of Pueblo Bonito’s Los Cabos and Rose resort hotels, this secluded, romantic hideaway, perfect for adventurous types, nestles at the base of soaring rock formations near Land’s End. The clear, calm waters here are ideal for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. Reachable from Lover’s Beach through a notch in the rocks is Divorce Beach, which fronts the Pacific Ocean. Well-named, it’s worth a look but off limits to swimmers due to its rip currents and treacherous surf. 

Sunset Sail. The water’s perspective is a unique vantage point for a majestic Cabo sunset. Cabo Adventures, a reputable outfitter, offers a 2.5-hour Luxury Sunset Sailing cruise aboard a fully-equipped, French-made sailboat that departs from the Cabo San Lucas marina 15 minutes from Pueblo Bonito Resorts. Receive a tall glass of sparkling wine upon boarding and a friendly greeting from the captain and crew. Then lie back on soft deck cushions as the boat plies the bay’s calm waters to Land’s End. Inhale the salty breeze as the crew hoists the sails for a tranquil cruise past the iconic sea arch and along the spectacular Cabo coastline. It’s an ideal way to watch the sun paint the sky in a fiery palette of colors. A perfect evening for couples, honeymooners, and romantics.

Sky Pool. Prone to seasickness but want a comparable sunset experience? The Sky Pool at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach is the best place in all of Los Cabos to observe the quiet fireworks of a Pacific sunset. Perched at the pinnacle of the sprawling resort’s terraced buildings, the Sky Pool is a two-tiered infinity pool that crowns a bluff nearly 250 feet above the beach and sea. It’s a perfect observation point for an epic Cabo sunset, the blazing sun swallowed by the sea at day’s end. 

Chocolate – Along with roses, chocolate says love. It just so happens that Mexico is the birthplace of chocolate. The cacoa tree, native to Mexico’s moist southern lowlands, were used centuries ago by indigenous cultures to make chocolate drinks. For an example of Mexican chocolate at its very best, head for El Chocolate at The Market at Quivira, the culinary food hall at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach. Situated at the entrance to The Market, this signature outpost artfully displays the finest-quality chocolates, truffles and other confections. Available in a rainbow of colors and flavors, these edible works of art are indescribably delicious. 

LaFrida Restaurant. Nothing conjures romance better than a beautiful candlelit room, exceptional cuisine and excellent service. This AAA Four Diamond Award winner’s creative approach to Mexican cuisine has earned it a loyal following. The wine list is match for offerings that range from Blue Corn Gorditas with Sinaloa-Style Barbacoa to Enchiladas with Duck Carnitas and aged black mole. This elegant restaurant offers indoor seating in a candlelit room decorated with the paintings of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo as well as an outdoor terrace with panoramic ocean views. 

Beach Walk. Quivira bellies up to a glorious stretch of pristine beach that extends for more than a mile. The last stretch of sand along the Sea of Cortez before it meets the Pacific Ocean below El Faro Viejo (the old lighthouse), the resort community’s beach is a wave-tossed, windswept strand where humpback whales breach close to shore through March. It’s a beachcomber’s delight, and a perfect place to toss your cares to the wind. Leave your cell phone behind. Soak up the negative ions produced by the crashing waves. These ions relieve stress, purify the blood and boost daytime energy. Being awestruck by nature can be very romantic!
