Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort

Transpeninsular Highway, 5 Cabo Real Km. 19, Tourist Corridor, 23400 San José del Cabo, B.C.S., Mexico

Las Ventanas al Paraíso represents the epitome of luxury, with gorgeous, gigantic rooms featuring traditional crafts, handmade mosaic headboards, and classy furniture and accents. Balcony railings are awash in pink blossoms of bougainvillea. Some rooms take amenities further still, with private kitchens and wine cellars, as well as personal butler service. The property is set between the desert and the sea, and common areas, such as pools, have exceptional ocean views. Service is ultra-attentive, as one would expect at this price point, and guests rave about on-site restaurants and dining, especially in La Cava, the resort’s private wine cellar. Concierges can assist with planning a host of excursions and experiences, from cooking classes to whale-watching trips.

Great place to relax; and the food is great too

I had a great time relaxing at the beautiful resort at the tip of the Baja. The rooms are really nice, and the people who work here are great. They also have some really amazing food. We ate at La Cava, and had variations of some traditional, but unfamiliar, Mexican dishes from various regions of the country.

Straight Chillin'

Las Ventanas is an ideal place to sit back, kick up your feet, and recharge. The views from your palapa are magnificent (we were in 408), and the margaritas are fantastic. The vibe is fun during the day and romantic at night. Don’t forget to get off property and explore but definitely look to making this your crash pad during your stay.

Mountains, Caves & Emerald Waters in Los Cabos

There are some things that you really need to view with your own eyes to really appreciate their beauty. The iconic Arch at Lands End is a landmark that I had always heard about, but never cared to elaborate on the majestic rock formations when viewing them in photos. The distinctive landmark is only accessible by boat, and during my voyage on a small, glass bottom skiff, I saw sea lions, pelicans and grey whales. The small boats hold 10 people and they’re great for adventurous spirits because they ride so close to the water. Located where the Sea of Cortéz and Pacific Ocean meet, the Arch is called “Lovers Divorce Beach” by the locals. “On the sea side, the water is calm and beautiful like a couple in love,” says Mario, our guide. “When we hit the Pacific side, the divorce happens and the craziness begins. There are a lot more waves on that side.” San José is a quiet town on the opposite end of the Los Cabos corridor. The quaint colonial city is filled with local shops and restaurants surrounding the Parroquia San José church in the main Plaza Mijares. The historic pastel-hued buildings and beautiful 18th-century gazebos are a charming counterpoint after visiting the busy streets of Cabos San Lucas. Bookending the two cities really illustrates exactly what Los Cabos is about. The beautiful views of the mountains, caves and emerald waters mixed with the nightlife of Cabos San Lucas and the local treasures found in San José, all make for a entertaining and relaxing weekend.

Huddle up at 'La Cava' (Las Ventanas)

...for a night of unforgettable Mexican food prepared by Chef Victor’s team. Baja oysters, parrot fish tiradito, steamed pork taquitos, oven cooked tlayuda with shrimp, braised short rib—and should you still have any room left for dessert, smoked tarte tatin with tequila ice cream. HEAVEN.
