A creative take on local Baja flavors

FOOD FOR THE SOUL
There’s a cliff at Esperanza where Chef Guillermo Gomez goes to collect live sea urchins that cling to the sides of the warm granite, sunbathing and seeking refuge from the crashing waves of the Sea of Cortez.

Stories from Esperanza

La Pirinola

Drink Come Play our Favorite Bar Game

As Esperanza’s lead mixologist, I like to think of fun and creative ways to serve drinks and to introduce you to local spirits, whether it’s by mixing balanced mezcal cocktails or by offering earthy Extra Añejos neat for sipping like fine whiskey. And like everyone else in the Esperanza family, I delight in making playful and surprising twists on local traditions. My favorite way to combine these passions is with Esperanza’s favorite bar game: La Pirinola.

Celebrate A Breath of Fresh Aire

In 1592, explorers sailing the Sea of Cortez first had the idea that the Baja Peninsula could act as a perfect refuge for trade ships arriving from a long Pacific voyage. It would be a place to breathe in fresh air and to rest and recharge before continuing on their voyage. Fast forward to present-day Baja and while the type of voyagers have changed, the primary needs have remained the same. Come November, 2018, groups will be able to find their refuge in a new, dramatic oceanfront event space called AIRE.

Eat Cabo’s Most Dramatic Dining Destination

This past July I met up with the owner of Tiki Cabo Organic Farm at the annual pitaya (aka dragonfruit) competition in his hometown of Miraflores. Locals will tell you that this is where you can find the most beautiful women, the best organic produce, and the toughest cowboys. I promise I was only there for the organic produce.

Drink Forget Everything You Knew About Tequila

In the Marais district of Paris there is an enchanting little bar with Parisian-Bohemian-styled Mexican influenced décor. Miniature pinatas and plastic cactus seem to be set in conversational arrangements with colorful Dia de los Muertos paper dolls and sugar skulls. Mezcal is served straight up or in cocktails accentuated with herbs, citrus and spice. There's a low percussive rhythm of an indistinguishable but unmistakably Latin beat. This delightful collision of culture affirms my belief that mezcal is the next big thing in the cocktail scene.

Meet Chef Gomez

Native of Argentina and an avid traveler, chef Guillermo Gomez brings creative flair, a passion for food, and about a dozen years of international culinary experience to Esperanza. Here, he skillfully designs menus for the resort’s six restaurants, inspired by local Mexican cuisine and his time in the kitchens of Italy, Spain and Uruguay. “As soon as I arrived at Esperanza, I fell in love with the energy here and with the natural abundance,” reflects Gomez. On days off, he and his family enjoy visiting the markets and organic farms of Miraflores, where his seven- and nine-year-old kids pick their own produce. He also recommends an excursion to the lesser-known town of San Carlos. “My family and I went there to watch the whales, and my daughter was so close she touched one. It’s an experience we will remember forever.”
