While you can’t drink the water on the sun-soaked peninsula, submersing yourself in the gin-clear Sea of Cortez is highly encouraged.
SURF WITH THE PROS Known as one of the most desirable stretches of white sand in Los Cabos, Monuments Beach (aka Surfers’ Paradise) is adjacent to the newly opened The Cape. So it only makes sense that the property, a Thompson Hotel, would offer a once-in-alifetime retreat for surfing fanatics. Taking place May 19–22, the multi-day experience presented by Mansa Vida (a travel company founded by pro surfers Rob Machado and Tim Curran) includes surfing workshops with the pros, screenings of cult surf films, a photography exhibition of work by renowned surf photographer Tom Servais, a live rooftop acoustic guitar concert with music by Curran, daily breakfast and morning yoga, and swag from the pros’ sponsors. And for those who want to experience the ultimate in luxury, the Surfer Villa — a three-bedroom, two-story unit complete with a chef’s kitchen and private plunge pool — is an option for the weekend. If that’s not enough to convince you to go, maybe the unparalleled views of El Arco from the only rooftop bar (shown below) in Cabo San Lucas will. Packages start at $2,921 for single occupancy. thompsonhotels.com/the-cape
