Book Your Thanksgiving Stay in Los Cabos
Heading to Los Cabos for a well-deserved getaway is something that should definitely thrill travelers. Those who are fortunate enough to make their way in this direction over the Thanksgiving holiday will find there’s even more to look forward to from their stay! Whether you’re excited to savor the flavors of the season, have a passion for on-the-water fun, or can’t wait to get to know the countryside, a trip to Los Cabos is designed just for you. The following are a few of the many reasons you’re going to want to book your Thanksgiving in Los Cabos this year.
Savor a Delicious Thanksgiving Dinner in Los Cabos
Thanksgiving might not be an official holiday in Mexico, but it’s certainly celebrated in Los Cabos in a savory way year after year. This fun destination sees a large number of American travelers heading this way at the end of November, and many restaurants provide a holiday menu that speaks to Thanksgiving style! While many holiday adventurers come this way to make the most of the sand, sun, and surf in abundance, there’s something nice in knowing you can still access those traditional Thanksgiving meals if you choose to during your stay. Travelers who are excited to treat their tastebuds to an exceptionally savory Thanksgiving meal will want to make their way to Humo on November 24, 2022. This San Jose del Cabo eatery will be serving up a special holiday menu for guests between 4:00 pm and 11:00 pm. A reservation is highly recommended, and prices start at $85 USD for adults and $45 USD for kids ages 5 to 12. There’s no dining charge for kids 4 and under. This welcoming dinner experience will include a family-style three-course meal featuring a unique fusion of Humo chef specialties and American traditional culinary favorites alike. It’s a delicious moment you simply won’t want to miss!
Enjoy Snorkeling at Santa Maria Bay
Beyond the savory holiday, moments waiting for visitors in Los Cabos this Thanksgiving, there are plenty of options to get out and explore on the water! Los Cabos enjoys year-round amazing weather, meaning those with a passion for snorkeling fun will have ample opportunities to get out and enjoy the underwater view this holiday. Be sure to head over to Santa Maria Bay when you’re looking to spend your time snorkeling in one of Los Cabo’s prime destinations. Santa Maria Bay is an incredible place to see everything from fish and reefs to incredible marine life too. While snorkeling independently is always an option, many visitors prefer to book a guided tour in order to make sure they’re enjoying the best spots and experiences around. Consider booking a sail and snorkel tour or make the most of a kayaking and snorkeling adventure with companies like Cabo Outfitters. Either way, you’re in for an adventure you won’t soon forget!
Take a Tour of Flora Farms
A fun addition to your Thanksgiving itinerary in Los Cabos is taking a tour of scenic Flora Farms. Situated just north of San Jose del Cabo, this one-of-a-kind stop is sure to inspire! Flora Farms sits within the breathtaking foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains and sprawls across 25 acres of land. Flora Farms is a local organic farm that also houses an on-site restaurant, grocery store, gift shop, and spa just to name a few. While dining here is always a delight thanks to the fresh flavors and ingredients paired with impeccable views, it might just be the farm walking tour that proves unforgettable. Guests will get to stroll the grounds and learn more about the importance of organic farming alongside those who have made it their life’s work! It’s a tour that shines a light on gratitude for the earth and healthy eating in many ways.
Add a Beach Day to Your Stay
For many Thanksgiving travelers, the beauty of a trip to Los Cabos over Thanksgiving is that they can swap the cold for time on the sand. When a beach day is just your style, head to Medano Beach at least once during your holiday travels. This vibrant stretch of shoreline is a great place to work on a tan, go for a swim, or strike up a game of sand volleyball.

Our Top Tips for a Los Cabos Trip with Friends
Sharing new adventures together and getting to know each other better are just some of the amazing advantages of traveling with friends. But, to make sure everyone in your group has an incredible getaway, we’ve compiled some handy tips and tricks to guarantee you’re all still laughing by the end of it!
What do you want to do on your vacation?
Believe it or not, not everyone wants to bask under the sun all day while sipping margaritas! An ideal vacation is often different for everyone — some want to soak up the culture of a new place, endlessly exploring every museum, art gallery, and festival they can. Others want to detach from the world with a good book on the beach. And some just want to sleep most of the day and come alive at night in the local clubs and bars! Deciding beforehand what you want to get out of your vacation will largely dictate where you go — this, of course, has to be a joint decision! If your group are mostly on the same page about having a beach holiday with no stress, search for a destination that gives you just that. If you’re all rather different and have a mix of things you’d all like to do, your destination should be somewhere that boasts a large range of different activities, like Los Cabos. Make sure you shop around to find somewhere perfect for everyone.
All-inclusive or villa rental?
This should be another question high on your list before booking anything with your gang. Each option brings numerous advantages — an all-inclusive resort means no cooking, cleaning or added costs to consider, while a villa rental provides the utmost privacy to sprawl out and really make the place your own!
Choosing a stunning villa rental with Elegant Mexico provides the best of both worlds. Some of our magnificent homes come with a full-service team including private butler and chef — please everyone in your group at the same time! Pic: Casa Bella Villa, Palmilla, Los Cabos.
Once You’ve Arrived:
It’s a great idea to plan your days in advance, noting when your group activities will be. Â Having a rough guide as to how you’re all going to spend the next week or two will make things run smoothly and will avoid mixed communication, or disputes about what the agenda looks like. Map out where and when you’re doing things as a group — this way you can plan around it for personal activities. Meal times can be a great time to unwind together and catch up over some local food and drink!
Moving on from the last point, it is important you plan personal time for those things you really do or don’t want to do. Traveling with a large group can become tiring at times and all you’ll really want is to spend some time with yourself. Â Not interested in the group paintballing trip? Take that time to visit the local spa you had your eye on — it’s your vacation after all! Having a mixture of group and personal activities to ensure everyone spends their vacation just as they want, is key.
Perhaps the crux to having an incredible trip with those closest to you is your ability to compromise! With so many opinions and differing likes and dislikes to contend with, conflicts are bound to arise at some point or another — it’s inevitable! The main point to remember is to compromise — perhaps you’re not a huge fan of Italian food, but are willing to go with the group consensus. That means you’ll get first choice at some other point in the week to visit the quaint little bakery you’ve wanted to try for breakfast! Compromise from the outset — it can make or break your vacation! Traveling with a group this year? We’ve got some of the finest luxury homes across Mexico to offer that are made for group getaways!

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo in Los Cabos
Cinco de Mayo has become a staple holiday for many westerners, but in Mexico, it is only considered a national holiday in the cities of Puebla and Veracruz. But in Los Cabos, whether you want to go out and enjoy the day, or relax by the pool at your luxury villa rental, we have everything you need to know.
Cinco de Mayo, which falls on a Sunday this year, is a holiday in commemoration of the Mexican Army’s victory over the French on May 5th, 1862 (not to be mistaken with Mexican Independence Day, September 16th). It was not until the 1980’s that the holiday became popular in North America largely due to liquor and beer companies using it as a promotional tactic.
It is thought that the holiday’s popularity is high in countries with a prominent Mexican population, as the day is a recognition of the bravery of those who continue to fight against oppression and celebrate their heritage. Despite the misconceptions of the holiday, we promote any excuse to spend time with your family and friends to enjoy and indulge in Mexican culture, foods, and drinks. Parades and music in the streets can be found in Cabo San Lucas and Punta Mita, with many restaurants and bars serving special promotions for the day.
For the past 13 years, the Los Cabos Mexican Grill and Cantina in Cabo San Lucas hosts an annual Cinco de Mayo block party. With outdoor dining, live music, and various entertainment and of course, an abundance of drinks, the event takes place all day long. Take the kids in the early afternoon to experience the festivities and child-friendly activities before returning for some evening fun, and maybe a cocktail or two. To To truly immerse yourself in traditional Mexican cuisine, we suggest Si Señor restaurant in Punta Mita. Located directly on the beach, enjoy the highest quality foods, and margaritas made from freshly squeezed lime juice, with the tequila of your choice. Surround yourself with palm trees under a canopy of traditional tapestries, and check out the gallery of historical sculptures and pottery on your way in.
Prefer to stay in and host your friends and family? Many of our private villas offer amenities including personal concierge and chefs, to make your Cinco de Mayo party run seamlessly. Pick up some decorations and tequila, and let our chefs cook traditional foods like tacos and enchiladas. If you can get your hands on some Ancho Reyes liqueur, hailing from Puebla, add the spicy spirit to your cocktails for a kick your guests will love.No matter how you decide to celebrate Cinco de Mayo—in the privacy of your gorgeous villa or out and about in town—don’t miss the opportunity to participate in the festivities.

The Most Exclusive Homes in Los Cabos: What You Need to Know
Have you ever wondered how Los Cabos became the premiere spot in Mexico for luxury and glamour? Who put Los Cabos on the map? And why do people love vacationing in these communities? We’ll tell you everything there is to know, from the groundbreaking and historical developments that have occurred in Los Cabos to the amazing lifestyle residents and guests can enjoy in the two original communities that started it all.
In the early 1950’s, a man named Don Abelardo Rodriguez Jr. came to Baja California Sur. Rodriguez was the son of the interim President of Mexico, General Abelardo Rodriguez, and had wealth and freedom to travel. A few years earlier, in 1948, Abelardo and his wife Lucille Bremer opened a luxury resort in Los Cruces. When he arrived in Los Cabos, meaning The Capes, he found a mostly uninhabited area with some fishing and hunting lodges. Rodriguez recognized the coast’s unique beauty and realized he could make something special there too. In 1957, the husband-and-wife team built the Hotel Palmilla on the undeveloped shore of the Sea of Cortez. It’s known today as the monumental One&Only Palmilla. But back then, it was a small 15-room resort that guests could only access by private plane or yacht. Luckily, that was no problem for the kind of people who frequented the resort. Lucille Bremer was a Hollywood movie star, and usually had the company of her counterparts at the Palmilla. Desi Arnaz, Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, John Wayne and even President Eisenhower were among the guests who stayed at the Palmilla in its early days. Word soon got out and other exclusive resorts and hotels opened in Los Cabos, catering to the glamorous lifestyle of the Hollywood elite. Guests like Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Mick Jagger and Elton John made Los Cabos their private playground in the 60’s and 70’s.
Then, in 1994 two Houston-based friends and business associates were visiting, and like Rodriguez, they saw the potential for something really special on the undeveloped mountainsides close to the Palmilla Hotel. They had come to play at the new Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and couldn’t help but notice the pristine ocean fronts that had gone untouched until then. The two friends were visionaries and successful developers, so they bought a small portion of land on the oceanfront near the Palmilla. They set about developing five houses, all of which sold before completion. They decided to call their project, the first luxury community in Los Cabos, Villas Del Mar. They realized the potential of Villas Del Mar and continued to expand. The community was renowned for excellence in design, quality of life and top-tier management and services. Villas Del Mar set the standard for high-end resort communities. Not long after, Del Mar Development created a second community called Espiritu. But Del Mar Development didn’t stop there. They’ve continued the legacy that Don Abelardo Rodriguez jr. and Lucille Bremer started all those years ago by expanding the mountainside in to six communities, with another in development. The beauty of Los Cabos has been made available to people from all over the world. Thanks to these trailblazers, we can experience the pristine landscapes, the living sea and the warmth of the Mexican sun that is only found in Los Cabos. Let’s dive a little deeper into the way of life in two of the original Los Cabos communities, Villas Del Mar and Espiritu.
Villas Del Mar and Espiritu
With all available activities, residents and guests staying in Espiritu and Villas Del Mar are never bored. The two communities neighbor each other, so they share many of the same exciting options. For off-site excursions, you can enjoy access to the Elegant Mexico Activity Concierge. This service arranges everything from yacht charters, art walks, whale watching trips to spa services and quiet tee times at the golf courses. From romantic outings to family fun, they’ll help you arrange whatever your heart desires. This hassle-free service is also completely customizable, so guests get exactly the experience they hope for. On site, the possibilities are endless. Guests and residents can walk over to the One&Only Palmilla to enjoy the hotel amenities like first class spa treatments, exclusive fine dining and bars and cocktail lounges. You’ll have five restaurants to choose from.
We love SEARED, the gourmet steak house serving Wagyu A5 and certified Kobe beef, and Suviche which serves sushi and ceviche. Both were brought to Los Cabos by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Residents and visitors of the communities will be only a short walk away from culinary heaven. Also included is access to the the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Palmilla golf course, an amazing private beach club, state of the art medical and fitness facilities, yoga and wellness meets at the hilltop sanctuary Mirador de la Cruz, and undisturbed beach access where you’ll find the most swimmable beach in all of Los Cabos.
The residents of Espiritu and Villas Del Mar form a community of happy, relaxed,like-minded people. With so many coming to live their best lives, it’s no wonder that they’ve made one of the most pleasant places to live in all of Mexico. Everything is only a stroll or cart-ride away, and cars are seen as an occasional tool rather than a necessity. The communities are staffed by over 200 people, and everyone is treated like family. Guests and residents enjoy a rich social network, complete with community events and shared cultural experiences. Homeowners build privileged connections with each other, as well as long lasting friendships with guests who keep coming back year after year. Espiritu has 28 acres of community parks, gardens and open spaces. There is also a tennis court and sports playing fields where community members regularly meet for social games. Many of these facilities have play areas for the little ones, and green spaces for joggers and dog walkers. Everytime you leave your villa, you’ll meet a friend. The communities are also extremely safe. Leaving doors unlocked is the norm there, and residents are beyond respectful to each other. Del Mar Developments have blended privacy and sociability perfectly, so when you want anonymity, you’ll have no trouble finding it. Whether you’re looking for high-class social functions or undisturbed relaxation, life here means a community connection beyond compare.
Del Mar: The resort homes that started it all
Villas Del Mar is recognized worldwide for setting the bar in luxury resort home design. And it was set high! Its homes are known for their alluring architecture. Some of the older beachfront homes feature a timeless design, while the newer penthouse homes blend contemporary design with traditional Mexican decor. All houses have a unified theme, without any two looking the same. Two decades after Villas Del Mar was founded, it continues to innovate with remodels and new additions. The homes feature an emphasis on outdoor living, the best part of Los Cabos life, with wide windows and glass doors to let the Mexican sun fill the rooms. Pool decks are larger-than-life, and the outdoor dining and lounging areas look out off the mountainside and onto the ocean. There are homes sized to accommodate all kinds of groups, from couples to multi-generational families. Some of the homes even have detached casitas for additional guests.
Espiritu: The most exclusive resort homes in Los Cabos
All of the homes in Espiritu were built by a team of experienced engineers and designers working with Del Mar Development. Del Mar Development had invaluable experience going into this project, having already built the successful Villas Del Mar. At Espiritu, you’ll find homes of extremely high quality with stunning outdoor living spaces. Large pools and decks, lush plant life and BBQ and lounge areas are the norm. Many newer communities in Los Cabos were built quickly and shoddily, attempting to capitalize on the real estate opportunity that the two original communities initiated. But at Espiritu, homeowners know their properties are top-notch. They experience luxury everyday! Espiritu also offers interior design services and has a full service onsite Design Center. Owners can make use of these services, ensuring that their homes are beautiful beyond compare for their own pleasure and for their guestsâ€™ as well. Ladco Resort Design, a nationally known Houston design group, provides expert consultation and furnishing. They cater to individual tastes, so no home in Espiritu is the same as another.
While you’re staying at Villas Del Mar or Espiritu, you’ll never want to leave! But once you manage to pull yourself away from all the pampering, it’ll be time to see the rest of what Los Cabos has to offer. Since you’ll be so close to San Jose Del Cabo, you’ll want to spend some time there. San Jose Del Cabo is the tranquilo older brother of Cabo San Lucas, with a much richer heritage and such a beautiful cultural scene that you won’t miss any of the busy streets and crowds over in the more touristy San Lucas. But since it’s only a 30-minute drive away, why not visit there for some amazing nightlife as well? Back in San Jose Del Cabo, go on an Art Walk in the artists district or a sightseeing tour to discover the heritage of the area.
You’ll have amazing food at your villa, but while you’re out, you should stop for a bite at Jazmin’s Restaurant for traditional fare, or at Don Sanchez for contemporary gourmet. When you’re ready to venture out a little further, the onsite activity concierge will help you get around. If you’re in to the great outdoors, check out our blog for all the great nature activities you’ll find in Los Cabos. There’s a great camel ride tour in Cabo San Lucas. And if you want to spend some time indoors, visit some of the luxury malls in the area. Now that you know the interesting history of the exclusive communities in Los Cabos, it’s time to see them first hand! We’ve got amazing rentals for you to stay at that you’ll fall head over heels for. Browse through our properties in Los Cabos and find the perfect one for you. As a guest of Elegant Mexico, we’ll make sure you receive all the resort treatments in the luxury of your own private vacation home.
