Pampering in Paradise: 10 Best Spas in Los Cabos

Cabo San Lucas built its reputation as a resort destination on big-game sportfishing, but over the past two decades the Los Cabos area has also become a world-class golf and spa 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. Los Cabos 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 Paraíso all feature expansive, world-class spa services and facilities. The Cabo Spa at Esperanza is generally considered the best spa in México, and is particularly noted for its romantic couples’ therapies. One&Only Spa and The Spa at 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 area spas also boast conceptual menu options revolving around a central idea. Luna y Mar at Cabo San Lucas' benchmark The Resort at Pedregal offers treatments based on the phases of the moon, while the luxurious Médano Beach resort Casa Dorada specializes in treatments utililizing the curative powers of the mineral rich waters of the Sea of Cortez.
