If you happen to be in Los Cabos with your sweetheart, then you are in the ideal destination for romance. The dramatic views of awe-inspiring resorts flanked on all sides by the Sea of Cortés, rugged outback terrain and the Pacific Ocean are certainly enough to sweep you off your feet. But if you want to raise the stakes on your romantic adventure, then consider going on a special date during your vacation.
Bubbles & Pearls
Riding high from a number of awards and recognitions — most of which are not new to them — The Resort at Pedregal is an idyllic destination, whether you have booked an appointment at the resort’s famed spa or made reservations at one of its acclaimed restaurants. Then there’s Champagne Terrace at El Farallón. Boasting more than 15 different Champagnes and a dedicated team that can provide fascinating insights on the effervescent drink, you can savor your blanc de blanc, rosé or vintage Champagne with a fine selection of imported cheeses and artisan salts.
Los Cabos’ greatest appeal is in its ability to make high-style seem completely effortless. That’s precisely the charm in Hotel Bahía’s SUR Beach House. With its clean, white beach aesthetic, SUR is equal parts polish and hospitality. It’s a day at a family friend’s seaside retreat. Aside from tempting loungers, the Beach House is equipped for a number of water activities, ideal for an active duo. The amenities are complemented by deliciously made tiraditos, ceviches and tacos, as well as seasonal handcrafted cocktails and a wine list that showcases a wide range of varietals sold by the glass or bottle.
Hard Day’s Night
When in Mexico, you would do well to try at least one tequila cocktail, but for a full immersion in all things agave-based, head to Pancho’s Restaurant & Tequila Bar. For almost three decades, the lively eatery has doubled as a temple to the national liquor. Sign up for one of the 45-minute Tequila Tastings to learn all about pulque, mescal and tequila — from their individual histories and the mythologies that have evolved about them to the production process of each as well as their drinking traditions — from Pancho’s Taquileros. This hands-on course has students sample four “caballitos” of different tequila and a “jarrito” of mescal from Pancho’s staggering collection of more than 650 tequilas and 15 mescals. At the end of the night, you and your love can stagger home with a nice buzz and a diploma certifying you are both Masters of Tequilas.
