From sunrise to siesta and then all night long, your itinerary at Esperanza is bursting with items to enhance your wellness. (That is, if you choose to have an itinerary at all!) You can start your morning with yoga – just as the sun is rising over the expertly thatched palapa roofs sprinkled across the grounds. After you’ve welcomed your way with some heavy stretches and rhythmic breaths, you can fill your journey with everything from whale watching, to learning how to cook new coastal flavors, to deep sea fishing, and beyond!
Whole body health requires movement and growth for both your body and mind. Esperanza shares some of the most creative and family friendly activities we’ve ever experienced while traveling in beautiful Mexico.
It’s clear there’s been great care given to each element carefully orchestrated into your entire Esperanza experience. Sunlight shows through the interiors and most buildings are designed to bring the natural energy of the outdoors in. When you’re surrounded by the beauty of the ocean and the peace of the desert – why wouldn’t you?
Staying Active on the Resort
Esperanza, an Auberge Resort, has curated a collection of experiences for guests ready to make the most of their Cabo vacation. I love the cooking lessons including the Ceviche class (it’s not every day you get to learn about a regional cuisine from the experts themselves!) Our whole family took full advantage of the private and resort pools – an excellent way to sneak in a little cardio, too! Over 15 complimentary fitness classes help guests stay active and engaged during their stay and themed dinners that are just as fun for parents as they are for kids!
Fun for just the adults can be had at mezcal and tequila tasting classes – a great way to learn more about the history and flavor profiles of these special spirits.
Fitness Center at Esperanza
If you’d prefer to get your workout in, in the fitness center rather than under the sun at a group class, the fitness center here hosts an assortment of cardio machines and free weights. You can arrange to work with a personal trainer during your stay and they can assist you in achieving your wellness vacation goals.
Activities Off the Resort
Staying active is easy when you have this many incredible offerings to choose from! We love the horseback riding outing and of course our boys love the sportfishing tours with Picante. Fishing for Marlin is Cabo’s specialty, and the expert guides always seem to know where to find the catch of the day.
I prefer to “fish” in a different way. I love the guided snorkeling experiences in Cabo – stretching, swimming, and stalking some of the most vibrant fish I’ve ever seen! Above water and on the greens, Puerto Los Cabos Golf gives us a view of the striking Sea of Cortez and Golf Cabo del Sol Ocean is a mainstay for world-traveling golfers.
I always try to add a series of healthy activities that also highlight something each of us love during our family vacations. It’s wonderful to be able to learn together and try new things – most of our family’s inside jokes and best memories come from these trips!
Relax and Restore at The Spa at Esperanza
Most of my favorite treatments harness the healing power of regionally grown, picked, and processed plants. The Take to the Sea combination treatment uses Thalassotherapy to refresh and detox your skin! Retreat from the Sun is a special blend of rituals designed to keep your skin healthy after sun exposure – enriching it with aloe and fresh cucumber.
The Spa’s therapists are incredibly skilled at massage. My favorite, the Auberge Attunement, aids in restoring your balance and harmony through massage and a series of rituals that include their luxurious oils. If you’ve created a wellness retreat for your whole family there’s a wide selection of treatments tailored for the needs and senses of kids.
Family Eats and Date Night Retreats at Esperanza
Cocina del Mar, Las Estrellas, La Palapa, and La Terraza Americana house the decadent experience you can expect to have at Esperanza. There is a wide assortment of awe-inspiring restaurants, bars, and grills in the area but Esperanza does a wonderful job sharing all the variety you’ll love for healthy dining during your stay.
My top foodie picks:
Cocina del Mar: freshly caught seafoodLas Estrellas: incredible fresh juices (Kale & Spinach!)La Palapa: themed family fun nightsLa Terraza Americana: raw tuna tower and todos santos soup
Esperanza’s bursting assortment of fun, relaxation, and true to the region finds make it a little bit of heaven in Los Cabos.
