Play Have You Ever Wanted to Walk on Water?

Some of my friends say their best dreams are of when they fly in the sky, bouncing among the clouds. My favorite dreams are of walking on the water, staying just above the surface but never slipping through. Well, guess what? My dreams came true on my family’s recent vacation in Los Cabos. We did a lot of super fun things, like riding camels along the beach and taking a kids’ cooking class. But the absolute coolest part of the stay was when I got to walk on water.

Play Family Movie Nights Have Never Been Better

When my family and I first began to plan our stay at Esperanza, we fantasized over spending as much time as possible in and on the water. Learning how to paddleboard was on my son’s bucket list, my daughter wanted to horseback ride along the beach, and we all relished the idea of a lazy sail along the Sea of Cortez, taking in dips to swim and snorkel whenever the mood struck. We ended up having an amazing time doing all those things, and we also discovered a fantastic—and wholly unexpected—new way to enjoy the water: movie night in the pool.

Drink Come Play our Favorite Bar Game

La Pirinola

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.

Learn The Secret Life of Sea Turtles

There are seven sea turtle species in the world, and Baja California Sur is home to a remarkable five of them—the hawksbill, loggerhead, leatherback, black turtle and olive ridley—all of which are endangered. These amazing sea creatures can hold their breath for up to seven hours at a time, slow their heartbeat to once every nine minutes, and most can dive to depths of up to 960 ft. (or nearly 100 stories underwater). But there’s another trait that’s even more astonishing, and the reason we give each of our guests a wooden sea turtle when they leave.

Celebrate Weave Mexican Culture into Your Cabo Wedding with Mariachi Music

Esperanza mariachi

The collective, deeply-felt emotion that falls over wedding guests as bride and groom walk down the aisle together—beaming in ear-to-ear smiles as newly-weds—is difficult to put into words. Mariachi, however, seems to capture this overwhelming love exceptionally well through its robust, sonorous music. An unforgettable way to transition from ceremony to reception, couple and guests enjoy the option to be lead by vivacious and talented mariachi dressed in exquisitely-embroidered sombreros and traditional attire.

Drink Forget Everything You Knew About Tequila

mezcal

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.

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.
