Few destinations in Latin America have invested as much in the development of the local wellness industry as Mexico has. With the ‘greatest presence’ of spas and relaxation centers south of the border, it has managed to carve out a role as the wellness capital of Latin America.

With resorts and boutique hotels that prioritize the well-being of guests and offer a calmer environment, ‘The Capes’ stands out among other competitors within Mexico, particularly Quintana Roo, with its riotous party scene and hectic Hotel Zone.

The main point of interest is The arc, an arch-shaped geological formation that juts out from the Pacific, and is a symbol of the impressive nature of Baja California Sur. It’s a popular day trip for travelers based in Cabo San Lucas or San José del Cabo, who often combine it with a visit to picturesque Playa de los Amantes.

Unmatched Cultural Offer

In addition to its natural wonders, Los Cabos, and the state of Baja California Sur in general, is arguably one of the most underrated cultural destinations in Mexico. packed with historically relevant sites and sleepy towns dating back to the Spanish Empire.

Just 75 km from Cabo San Lucas, Todos Santos is famous for its traditional old brick buildings and hilly cityscapes. Originally founded as a Spanish trading center in the 18th century, it has been added to the ever-expanding list of Mexico’s ‘Pueblos Mágicos’.

El Triunfo also deserves a wink, with its colonial-style church and its cobbled streets.
