Land's End Love Nests: The Most Romantic Resorts in Los Cabos

Los Cabos offers a multitude of luxurious coastal hotels and resorts for romantic getaways, and in the past decade has become one of the premier North American sites for destination weddings, honeymoons and renewal of vows ceremonies.

In addition to event services and onsite romance coordinators, most of the top lodgings in Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo and the connecting Tourist Corridor feature pampering spas and onsite fine dining, as well as romantic packages, promotions and vacation "enhancements" that range from rose petal strewn suites to welcoming gifts of Champagne or chocolate covered strawberries.

Since the majority of the region's top accommodations options boast scenic settings and spectacular views, there is an ongoing competition among local hotels and resorts to provide unique, or signature romantic experiences. The Resort at Pedregal's "Romance Under the Stars" package, for examples, includes Champagne, rose petals, massages and romantic star and moonlit dinners from a cliffside perch above crashing Pacific Ocean waves.

Other romance-friendly properties of note include Breathless and Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, the best of Cabo San Lucas' adults-only resorts; One&Only Palmilla, where private butlers and yacht excursions await; and Esperanza, whose onsite spa has been ranked as the best in Latin America.

Adults-only, all-inclusive Breathless is the hottest new lodging in Los Cabos, premiering in December 2015. The recently opened resort enjoys a superb location - at the end of the Cabo San Lucas Marina, near the entrance to Médano Beach - with...  Read More
