Outside the city Hotels in Cabo San Lucas

The top tier hotels and beachfront resorts of Cabo San Lucas are equal to any in the world in terms of sheer luxury and extravagance, with many boasting easy access to championship-level golf courses, and virtually all home to expansive spa services. But to truly experience the breadth of accommodations available in the area, from small value-oriented beach cabanas to five-star opulence, try sampling the wide-range of lodgings available outside of Cabo San Lucas.

In the artist's colony of Todos Santos, this includes the famed Hotel California, home to eleven sumptuously appointed rooms and suites, beautiful gardens surrounding the swimming pool, as well as La Coronela Restaurant and Bar. Helmed by executive Chef Dany Lamote, the superb La Coronela focuses on locally grown and organic ingredients to create a menu of unconventional and exotic dishes, as well as traditional Mexican specialties and casual favorites like omelets and hamburgers.

In Baja Sur's capital city of La Paz, the five-star Costa Baja Resort and Spa offers luxury vacation villas and condominiums, as well as excellent amenities and recreational activities that include a Gary Player designed golf course, and an on-site marina. Spacious hillside condos are set just off the golf course, while vacation villas feature views of the marina, mountains, and the Sea of Cortez. Guests will also want to check out downtown La Paz, home to historic architecture and a festive nightlife scene. Walk the seaside boardwalk with its bronze sculptures by famed Mexican artists, or take a trip to the uninhabited Isla Espiritu Santo.

An oasis in the heart of San Jose del Cabo's art district, Casa Natalia is a small, European-style boutique hotel with striking contemporary architecture, and set amidst a secluded enclave of palm trees, waterfalls, and tropical flowers. There are fourteen deluxe guest room and two spa suites, with all rooms individually decorated with local artwork, and feature sliding glass doors that open onto private shaded terraces. Recline on a hammock underneath a canopy of bamboo and bougainvillea, or enjoy the full breakfasts delivered daily to your terrace. The onsite restaurant Mi Cocina, helmed by Chef Loïc Tenoux, fuses Mexican and European cuisines.

For those visiting the East Cape region, Los Barriles is home to the superb Van Wormer resort Palmas de Cortez, which features fishing charters from the hotel fleet, an executive nine-hole golf course, seasonal windsurfing and kiteboarding rentals, as well as gorgeous up-close-and-personal views of the Sea of Cortez.

Honorable mention candidates include the excellent Hotel Palomar in Santiago, close to the zoo and the hot springs of Miraflores, and the Cabo Pulmo Beach Resort and Dive Shop, a premier destination for snorkelers and divers eager to explore the Western Hemisphere's oldest and largest living coral reef.
