Cabo Isn't Just For the Celebrities


Cabo is not your average Caribbean vacation escape! It's something all its own. With luxury accommodations, impeccable food, and all around stunning views you'll experience true paradise!

My last visit to Cabo was about 15 years ago and there were not nearly as many resorts as there are now. And WOW, what a difference all those years can make. Now I see why Cabo is a hotspot for the celebrities, there are so many fabulous luxury resorts. In fact, some sweet clients of mine were rubbing elbows with Darius Rucker on their honeymoon last year while in Cabo (how cool is that?!). While a popular island for many, I am always quick to tell my clients, you don't go to Cabo for the beach and calm waters. While there are many gorgeous beaches, there are only a handful of  calm relaxing waters you can experience.   However, many of the resorts overcome this with infinity beachfront pools.

Fun fact and foodie hotspot: Sammy Hagar (lead singer of Van Halen) founded the popular restaurant and nightclub hotspot, Cabo Wabo. You may spot a few VIP musicians while you are sipping your "Wabarita!And remember when you book with VIP Travel Experience you'll be able to take advantage of our exclusive amenities that may include...

A torchlit tunnel through Pedregal Mountain makes arrival to this marvelous resort quite dramatic as it is carved into the majestic cliffs at the tip of the Baja California Peninsula! The Waldorf is an exclusive haven defined by the connection to its setting, an environment that is both inspirational and incomparable. A short taxi ride away from Cabo Wabo (Sammy Hagar's restaurant & nightclub - if you're interested). The ocean-facing plunge pools on each room’s terrace (complimentary beer, chips, and guacamole show up at just the right time each afternoon), the spa treatments based on moon phases, a Champagne bar on the beach with swings for barstools, and cliffside El Farallon’s ocean-to-table meals, the quieter side of the tunnel has its rewards.

VIP Travel Tip: Board the resort’s 60-foot Dos Mares yacht for private parties or a Friday-evening cocktail cruise to watch the sun set behind Los Cabos' famous landmark arch, El Arco.

The Signature Beachfront and Ocean view Villas are steps from the legendary Sea of Cortés. Its lazy river pool has an adjacent taco bar with rooftop terraces and Arbol restaurant’s seafood platters and lantern-lit trees, the property remains the epitome of beach life in Mexico. La Botica, a new speakeasy piano bar whose exit resembles a vintage Coca-Cola fridge, features live jazz, Latin, and Afro-Cuban music until 2 am every night. Live the life at Las Ventanas!
