Sit on the edge of a pool and gaze over the mystical Sea of Cortez with a margarita in your hand. Your personal butler, an inclusive feature of Esperanza, Auberge Resorts Collection, will be right next to you mixing your drinks. The stunning Esperanza in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico does things a bit differently than your usual Caribbean beach resort and should definitely be on your list of vacations for this year.
Book Your Own Margarita Butler
Personal butlers are inclusive features at many resorts, but the expertly-trained margarita butler is a new feature unique to Esperanza. Guests can choose from tamarind, mango, hibiscus, lime, cucumber and cilantro margarita flavors and have it mixed however they want. If you like your margarita on the rocks, try out the cucumber and cilantro flavors. Your butler will let you know which drink combinations go well together. They will also bring out fruit skewers and small snacks, like grilled cheese with jalapeño and ham, or even towels. All you need to do is relax and drink. Be sure to book a poolside cabana at the resort so you can partake in this special experience.
Relax in a Palapa or Surf on the Beach After
Esperanza is the only private beach resort in Los Cabos. Its luxurious suites, villas and casitas feature balconies overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Many rooms even include an infinity pool and instant access to the beach. Relax in an open-air bed in one of Playa Paraíso’s two-story palapas with the attention of a personal butler. Afterward, hop into the water, go sea foraging or swim with whale sharks. Surfers will love Playa Los Cerritos and Playa Costa Azul. Kids can take part in a Mermaid and Pirate Breakfast, which offers sea-inspired cuisine and later on, live mermaids and a pirate ship. Adventurers can rent a camel or a horse and ride through the deep canyons of Los Cabos’ deserts. If you stay at Esperanza from winter to late spring, look out for migrating whales passing close to shore.
Mezcal & Wine Tasting
Margarita and drink connoisseurs will appreciate the on-site mezcal tasting class and authentic Mexican wine tasting tour. Combine this with a dinner made from the freshest catches of the day or you can dive for chocolate clams and cook them for dinner with the help of the resort’s best chefs.
Vacationing in Los Cabos
If you feel like venturing outside of the resort, you should explore the beautiful town of Cabo San Lucas and nearby San José del Cabo, which make up the municipality of Los Cabos. The weather is perfect year-round and the night clubs world-class. Los Cabos is also home to some of the most unique and stunning landscapes in the world, like the El Arco ancient rock formation lining the sea and beaches starkly contrasted by desert landscapes. Los Cabos also has its own international airport, so you can make this trip into a perfect weekend beach getaway.
