Cabo San Lucas built its reputation as a resort destination on big-game sportfishing, otherworldly sea lion swimming, and unparalleled hiking tours, but over the past two decades the city has also become a world-class health and wellness locale.
Virtually every hotel or resort of note boasts an onsite spa, and many showcase lengthy conceptual massage and treatment menus, as well as stylish salon services and state-of-the-art fitness facilities. Cabo San Lucas dominates rankings of the best spas in Latin America, annually accounting for nearly half the entries on lists that draw from a vast geographic conglomeration that includes almost the entirety of Central and South America.
It should come as no surprise that the best spas are typically located at the best hotels and resorts. Tourist Corridor standouts ‘One & Only Palmilla’, ‘Esperanza’ and ‘Las Ventanas al Paraiso’ all feature expansive, world-class spa services and facilities. The facilities at ‘Esperanza’ are generally considered the best in Mexico, and is particularly noted for its romantic couples therapies. ‘One & Only’ and ‘Las Ventanas’ also excel at treatments for two, among many other holistic wellness programs.
In addition to standard massage options like Swedish and Shiatsu, many spas also boast conceptual menu options revolving around a central idea. ‘Luna y Mar’ and ‘Pedregal’ offer treatments based on the phases of the moon, while the luxurious ‘Casa Dorada’ specializes in treatments utilizing the curative powers of the mineral rich waters of the Sea of Cortez.
However, whether you’re looking for the latest in anti-aging treatments, want to unwind poolside with a deep-tissue massage, experience the tranquility of snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas’ famous waters, or just sample some of the most wholesome Mexican food around, the city’s top-of-the-line offerings have something to suit every wellness-seeker.
