From the Beaches to the Mountains, These Are the Mexican Resorts of Our Dreams
We will be dreaming about these Mexican holidays for the next few months as we work from home.
Even though travel might still be on hold, we can still dream of sandy escapes and nights full of laughter in stunning Mexican locations. When the timing is right, we can’t wait to visit to these luxury resorts and boutique hotels from Cabo to Tulum.
Paradero Todos Santos, Cabo San Lucas
Only an hour away from Los Cabos, this stunning new resort offers great surf and other outdoor pursuits for Boho-adventurers in a dramatic setting that leans into the outdoor part of the indoor-outdoor equation. Explore the grounds and you’ll find a thriving botanical garden, suspended nets that offer you panoramic views, and an underground spa influenced by a secret watering hole in Todos Santos.
Casa de Sierra Nevada, A Belmond Hotel, San Miguel de Allende
This resort combines a luxury getaway with onsite culture and history. The grounds includes a former convent, a 17th-century fort, and the former residence of the Archbishop of San Miguel de Allende. You can lodge in a traditional carsona (large house) fully equipped with a butler and dining service for you family or take cooking into your own hands at the on-site cooking school.
Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas
If you’re looking to switch up your work from home routine consider the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal. The resort has partnered with Take Lessons, a national tutoring service to support your little ones by providing tutors, group classes, activities, and virtual field trips. While your kids are busy learning, retreat to a luxurious room designed to leave you with little distraction beyond the beautiful view in front of you. Take advantage of the resort’s Escape Longer package which offers a 30% discount if you plan to stay more than five days.
Casa Hoyos, San Miguel de Allende
Live in a piece of history at the Casa Hoyos in San Miguel de Allende. The property has been with the Hoyos family for four generations and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hotel presents a synthesis of old and new with chic elements of Mexico modernism embraced in an old Spanish manor. On the grounds you can grocery shop at the seed and grain store or explore Mexico’s first currency exchange bureau.
One & Only Mandarina, Riviera Nayarit
Solace and solitude await at the One & Only Mandarina which sits where the Pacific coastline cliffs meet a luscious jungle on the underdeveloped coastline of the Riveria Nayarit. The resort pays tribute to the Cora and Huichol cultures whose land it lies on by employing resource-efficient architecture and sustainable practices and consulting botany experts during its development to ensure the land and ecological wildlife were preserved. Most notable of these is a 235-year-old Higuera Blanca tree, otherwise known as The Grandmother Tree.
AZULIK, Uh May
The rooms at Azulik eco-resort look like they are galaxies away, with each space being an environment unto itself. The buildings are built of twisting wood and undulating walls with no angles, columns, or corners. There’s a contemporary art museum on site, with the current exhibit immersing viewers in an installation inspired by a traditional Mayan painting of a dance with the sea. The hotel is just 25 km northeast of Tulum which allows you to take a quick day trip to the popular coastal city.
