Whenever there’s a place with a sea or lake, I look for some kind of boat for a relaxing water cruise. Being at sea invokes a thousand daydreams. Nothing beats the summer breeze blowing in your face distracting you from life’s problems. The summer exhales gently. Its breath bangs the halyards on the mast, making them chime pleasantly and methodically. I heard that Los Cabos rises to the occasion and it didn’t disappoint. The charming and amazing natural scenarios can help anyone have their own unique experience. In fact, the most emblematic sites of Cabo San Lucas fill that purpose perfectly: Land’s End.

 

 

 

 

 

One of the most endearing sayings that many people say is “I would go to the end of the world for you!” Here, Cabo comes forward and sparkles in all its splendor to create the picture-perfect moment where you can make that statement come true. Well, maybe not the end of the world per se, but it is Land’s End for goodness sakes. This piece of land is the very tip of the Baja California Peninsula, where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet. At Land’s End, you can see the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas, Lovers’ Beach, and Divorce Beach, each part with a beautiful story that your tour guide at Cabo Adventures will be happy to tell you.

 

❖ 8:30 pm MICHELIN DINING

Dinner at Cocina de Autor

One could say that I dined a lot on this trip. One could also say that how could I not. Two-star Michelin Dutch Chef Sidney Schutte leads restaurant on the top of every big list around (Robb Report’s selection of 5 Outstanding Restaurants to Try in Los Cabos, Mexico’s Emerging Dining Scene, and the CNN’s Best New Restaurants in 2017). This was my last real meal at Grand Velas and it was easily the best. It was a set menu consisting of ten courses with two being dessert. The culinary voyage was paired with a wine and spirits menu through every course. It was one of those avant-garde fusion feasts that was delicious but also makes you think.

❖ Sunday
LAST HOURS

My three o’clock flight meant leaving the resort at noon, so time was of the essence to soak in every last minute. I broke the cardinal rule of vacation and got up early to watch the sunrise, have breakfast at the finest buffet in Mexico at Azul next to the water, and walk with the horses on the beach.

All in all, it was easy to see why the Grand Velas is undeniably the all-inclusive trailblazer and among the preeminent resorts in the world.
