Thatched-Roof Villas near Unspoiled Beaches on Quiet Pacific Coast
About 50 miles north of rowdy Cabo San Lucas, Los Cerritos Beach's sparsely populated white-sand coast shows a quieter side of the Baja California Sur peninsula. Here, the Mayan-inspired Cerritos Surf Colony and its freestanding villas face one of the only swimmable-and-surfable beaches in the area. The ocean's steady swells and predictable whitewater make the crescent-shaped beach a favored spot for surfers and celebrities.
White loungers surround the resort's 100-foot outdoor pool, which features a lengthy swim-up bar where up to 18 patrons or a flock of thirsty pelicans can grab drinks. Nearby, surf instructors impart their know-how during lessons at Cerritos Beach Club & Surf. After hanging ten, guests can pop into the Beach Club restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. On Sundays, the club features live music.
The two-bedroom standalone villas are located beachside, between stubby palmettos and towering palm trees. Inside each thatched-roof hut you’ll find an upscale interior adorned with wicker furniture and hand-painted Mexican tiles.
Todos Santos, Baja California Sur: Surfing, Jet Skiing, and Seaside Horseback Riding
Thanks to the enormous size of Los Cerritos Beach, there’s plenty of room to zip around on ATVs or go horseback riding alongside the ocean. Jet skiing and kayaking are also popular. From December through April, beachcombers can spot migrating gray whales and their newborns splashing in the waves offshore.
The Todos Santos artist colony is about a 10-minute drive from the hotel. Founded as a mission in 1724, the seaside town grew into a sugar-cane production center and then became popular with farmers growing poblano chilies, avocados, papayas, and mangos. In the last decade, Todos Santos has become a hub for artists, who ply their wares at boutiques and galleries touting handmade sculptures, paintings, and other work.
