RELAX, RECHARGE AND REJUVENATE
Soothing ocean breezes, magnificent mountain backdrops, the mysteries of the desert at your doorstep—it’s no wonder Los Cabos has earned a well-deserved reputation as a destination where visitors can get away from it all to relax, recharge and rejuvenate. From solitary moments on the beach to soothing spas, mindful yoga and invigorating workouts, Los Cabos sets the scene for vacations that refresh the body, mind and spirit.
However your travelers define wellness, they are sure to find it in Los Cabos, where stunning landscapes mix with world-class resorts to fulfill your clients’ dreams of the ultimate vacation.
Spas throughout Los Cabos are world-renowned, constantly upping the ante with new and unusual offerings to fit any relaxation style. Just a sampling of unique approaches includes the Eforea Spa at Hilton Los Cabos, where visitors can customize their treatments with natural herbs from the Living Wall; a diamond dust and Damascus Rose treatment at Marquis Los Cabos; the Draining Onyx Detox at Paz Spa at Cabo Azul; and the four-hand Pericu Massage at Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos, based on treatments from the ancient Pericu tribe.
A number of resort spas also highlight water treatments, such as the Spa at Esperanza—where the Pasaje de Agua features a warm-spring soaking pool, steam caves and a cool rinse—and a personalized hydrotherapy ritual at Grand Velas Los Cabos that includes steam with chromotherapy, an ice room, thermal lounges and more.
Several area resorts have elevated their spas beyond traditional treatments to encompass a holistic spiritual approach to wellness. At Montage Los Cabos, signature wellness programs include the resort’s nightly shaman ceremony, Canopy of Stars, a guided ceremony of purification, transformation and stargazing led by the resort’s shaman. The Spa at Las Ventanas al Paraiso also features a complimentary nightly Holistic Twilight Ceremony for spa guests that includes a Mayan energy cleansing ritual known as limpia, as well as Spiritual Chilam, an original treatment of the shamans of Baja that includes crystal mediations and stone massage to purify the spirit and the soul. And at Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa, Pueblo Bonito Pacifica and the YHI Spa at ME Cabo, visitors can enjoy temazcal treatments, traditional Mayan sweat lodges where shaman-led ceremonies are designed to foster spiritual and physical well-being.
Beyond the spa, numerous resorts feature yoga offerings as another way to enhance physical, mental and spiritual health. The Resort at Pedregal, for example, not only offers daily yoga for guests but a unique yoga retreat that marries yoga practice with spa treatments connected to the phases of the moon and mindful meditation on the beach. And El Ganzo features both morning yoga and Yoga and Meditation Under the Full Moon at the beach.
In addition to top-notch fitness centers, tennis courts and championship golf, many area resorts also feature other ways for fitness-focused guests to stay active. For example, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences offers nearly two dozen fitness classes developed by international fitness guru Modu Seye of ModuVated, from Beach Bootcamp and Reformer Pilates to Stand Up Paddle Yoga and Water Spinning. The fitness program at Viceroy Los Cabos, curated by celebrity fitness guru and New York Times best-selling author Harley Pasternak, includes a range of options from trampoline jumping and kickboxing to Beach Boot Camp and Karma FIT, a holistic functional training class that incorporates elements of yoga, aerobics, strength training and more.
