Spa Relaxation and Fine Dining at Beachfront Hideaway
At the San Jose estuary, Rio San Jose's fresh waters converge with the Pacific's saltwater, creating an ideal habitat for tlaco palm trees and more than 200 species of protected birds. A few miles away from this tranquil sanctuary, the San Jose del Cabo's town square is dotted with colonial homes, adobe churches, and shops where artisans craft handmade pottery. Bel Air Collection Resort & Spa Los Cabos lies just beyond the square on a quiet stretch of beach, but it is within a short drive of Cabo San Lucas's vibrant nightspots.
Gauzy, white curtains hang from the walls in the loft rooms, lending the spaces a cloud-like feel. From the private balcony, you can test the theory that sparkling wine gives you gravity-defying powers. You can prepare your own meals using the room's fully equipped kitchenette or explore Japanese, Mexican-Italian fusion, and other international cuisines at Bel Air's three onsite restaurants.
The palm-filled resort exudes breezy, tropical vibes. Tiki huts wrap around the property's focal point—an infinity pool that appears to spill out into the ocean. Over at the spa, skilled therapists mollify muscles with deep-tissue massages and bamboo facial therapies. You can also book couples treatments, including a candlelit midnight massage on the beach—the perfect chance to employ your knowledge of constellations and the viscosity of candle wax.
San Jose del Cabo, Mexico: Charming Spanish Colonial Town with Adventurous Sports and Cabo Nightlife
With centuries-old cathedrals, galleries, and courtyard restaurants, the former missionary town of San Jose del Cabo sometimes necessitates reflection at one of the shaded benches in the main square, or zocalo. Many beaches in front of the town invite a restful dip with gentle tides and secluded coves. Baja Wild's kayaking and snorkeling expeditions venture to where the Gulf of California meets the Pacific Ocean.
Come evening, the gallery district's bars attract laid-back crowds with the ostentatious trumpets and violins of live mariachi music. At the Baja Brewing Company, visitors mingle with locals while sampling artisanal cerveza from the Baja Razz raspberry ale to the coffee-tinged Baja stout. Though many prefer San Jose del Cabo's peacefulness, Cabo San Lucas's thriving club scene is only short jaunt away for those wanting conga lines, tequila shots, and sentient disco balls.
