Baja, Mexico: A Vacation Retreat With Adventure

Rancho Pescadero

As a part of our work with the Mexico Tourism Board, we recently had the opportunity to visit La Paz, Mexico and we didn’t want to leave. The cleanliness of the area, the beauty of the people, the brilliant water, the food (Buffalo BBQ in La Paz), the ice cream, the colorful fish, snorkeling in Mexico with sea lions… we could go on and on we loved La Paz, Mexico so much. In fact, we’re already playing with the idea of a retirement home in Baja. Therefore, in addition to all the other great locations and openings around the world that we like to inform our readers about, we wanted to share some Baja, Mexico news.

A contact of ours recently informed us of this sweet resort: Rancho Pescadero, a stellar destination for total relaxation which adventurous pursuits in a laid back luxury resort environment just an hour north of Cabo. From surfing one of the top local breaks to hiking the Sierra Laguna Mountains, Rancho Pescadero gives guests the perfect place to enjoy all that Baja has to offer, by arranging day trips to the Sea of Cortez for a chance to snorkel, book surfing lessons, or plan a fishing trip with a local panguero.

With access to two miles of secluded white-sand beach and two swimming pools, the property’s “best gym is the outdoors”. Guests have free use of an ample supply of surfboards, boogie boards, fishing equipment and bicycles. In addition to beach walks, ocean swims and surfing workouts, guests can also enjoy daily complimentary yoga classes.

One of the most popular activities is whale shark watching at Espirtu Santo Island (this is where we snorkeled and it’s one of the most amazing snorkeling sights we’ve ever laid eyes on). Guests can explore the amazing Marine National Park while interacting with whale sharks and swimming with sea lions in the lagoons of the Magdalena Bay. Other activities include scenic waterfall walks, ATV tours and the once-in-a-lifetime experience for thrill seekers to explore wide open Baja by going open road racing.

After an activity-filled day, Rancho Pescadero then provides all of the ingredients needed to relax and rejuvenate: a treatment at The Tres Hermanas Spa, creative Mexican cuisine, or simply lounging poolside with a hand crafted cocktail. You really can’t go wrong, it’s so right.

Rates range from $185-425/night
