Isaac Shani, Director of eCommerce & Merchandising, has already shared his thoughts about traveling in-style. Once again, he offers some great suggestions for traveling South of the Border, this time to the beautiful beaches of Los Cabos, Mexico.
As we head into Fall, my favorite thing to do is travel somewhere warm to take advantage of the last bit of sunshine before the cold Winter weather hits. The shoulder season (September through mid-November) is a terrific time to get out of town and find great discounts on hotels, especially in the Caribbean and Mexico. Many luxury hotel brands have recently opened in Los Cabos and this time, I chose to stay at The Cape, a Thompson Hotel.
The Cape opened a little over a year ago and is located near Cabo San Lucas. It’s hip-luxury at its finest with some of the best views of the famous Arc of Los Cabos, or El Arco. You can soak up some sun at the infinity pool, or relax at the spa and enjoy one of the amazing treatments while looking out over the ocean.
Book a Thompson Suite for an extra luxurious experience, which includes a spacious living room, standing tub and hanging daybeds on the balconies. Sitting on the daybed, watching the sun set while sipping a refreshing margarita is rest and relaxation at its best! The hotel also has an awesome restaurant called Mantra from the famous chef, Enrique Olevra. Don’t miss out on The Rooftop, a bar with incredible views, modern décor, a great vibe and delicious handcrafted cocktails.
One of the best kept secrets nearby is Flora Farm, which serves a seasonal menu and provides the ultimate farm to table experience. The restaurant is located in the middle of a ten-acre organic farm in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains and tours are available Tuesday through Saturday. The easiest way to get to the restaurant is to book a Gray Line, which will take you directly to the farm.
I already can’t wait to go back. Adios, amigos!
