The lucky travelers who’ve had the chance to experience the most southern tip of Baja’s wild, natural beauty want to keep it all to themselves.
After a quick two-and-a-half-hour flight from Los Angeles, we travel around 20 minutes pass cactus-dotted desert stretching as far as the eye can see.
A bold, bright sign tells us we’re now in Cabo San Lucas, a resort city on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula,and beyond the cliffs below we spot the ocean, a vivid turquoise.
As if out of nowhere, luxury properties appear dotted along the beach.
To the right, that same expansive desert landscape, to the left, property after property in what feels like a secret paradise in such a rugged stretch of land.
We’re en route to the new Montage Los Cabos, a five-star property set on 39 pristine beachfront acres. The resort has 122 expansive guestrooms, suites and casas designed to celebrate traditional Mexican indoor/outdoor living.
We’re greeted with a warm welcome from the smiling staff, who wave our car inside the hotel’s gates and hand us a welcome drink.
The reception area is expansive; the interiors channel the surrounding desert landscape with lots of sand, cream and native wood.
Our view is beyond our wildest expectations, even though we’ve been stalking this property on Instagram. An enormous pool snakes around the villas and out towards the resort’s very own private beach.
