Los Cabos, located at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California’s Peninsula, has long been considered a glam go-to destination for sun-seekers. And this year, the municipality’s tourism board has put wellness travelers on notice that this beautiful beach location has emerged as a healthy travel destination.
A number of luxury and family-oriented resorts and hotels have expanded their list of amenities to include spa and fitness offerings Spas & Wellness – Visit Los Cabos – Spa Resorts, Hotels & Retreats in Cabo San Lucas. And the natural environs along the coastal shoreline lend themselves to outdoor fitness activities. With hiking trails sprawled among indigenous flora and fauna, Sierra de la Laguna mountain is known as the “diamond in the rough.” Hikers wend their way around the lush trails for a stop at the Fox Canyon waterfalls for a quick, refreshing dip Hiking – Visit Los Cabos – Hiking Trails & Tours in Cabo San Lucas. A visit to Temazcal, an ancient steam lodge located in a darkened chamber is where the use of elements found in earth, fire, water and air aid in rejuvenation of the body, mind and spirit.
The emphasis of farm-to-table dining establishments with ingredients sourced from rural areas near Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo showcases fresh Mexican cuisine the way it is meant to be enjoyed Farm To Table – Visit Los Cabos – Restaurants in Cabo San Lucas & San Jose del Cabo. Places like Flora Farms, Acre and Los Tamarindos offer cooking classes to allow visitors to recreate the authentic dishes once they return home.
A locale that is often known as a wedding destination or an escape for swanky A-listers, Los Cabos is now an attraction for wellness enthusiasts.
