Los Cabos Named Among World’s Top Destinations for 2019


Los Cabos has long been a destination of Hollywood stars—beginning with John Wayne in the 1960’s and including George Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Cindy Crawford, Will Smith and more. California’s elite was drawn to the rustic beauty of the Baja, its pristine coastline, and its exclusivity (for years, Los Cabos was accessible only by private airplane).  While much has changed since the 1960’s, these things continue to be a draw for visitors from across the world.

In recent years Cabo San Lucas has earned a reputation for being a top destination for bachelor and bachelorette parties and college spring breakers due to its seemingly unending choices of bars and nightclubs, but the southernmost municipality of the Baja has so much more to offer. Savvy travelers are beginning to branch out and explore the areas surrounding Cabo San Lucas, like the historic towns of Todos Santos and San Jose del Cabo, the East Cape and Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park (a UNESCO World Heritage site), and the waterfalls and hot springs of the nearby villages of Santiago and Miraflores.

Over the last several years, Los Cabos has experienced unprecedented growth. Demand for luxury accommodations has sparked the construction of the Solaz, A Luxury Collection Resort (opened Summer 2018), The Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas (Spring 2019), Amanvari at Costa Palmas (slated for 2020), and others, with Nobu, St. Regis, and Park Hyatt—among others—in the works as well.

It’s no wonder that, with so much natural diversity, Los Cabos has been named one of the top travel destination for 2019 by Forbes, Architectural Digest, and Traveller Australia, along with several regional news outlets and independent blogs.

With the increase in visitors to Los Cabos, the demand for private villas is growing. Private villas are an amazing way to experience Los Cabos, offering you the flexibility and independence to do Cabo your way. Every Cabo Luxury rental comes with a professional, native English-speaking concierge who will help build a customized itinerary just for you and be your Cabo expert 24/7 while you are here. Our private chefs, butlers, and spa team turn your villa into your own private resort to be enjoyed by family and friends.

Our Top Picks

Family Vacation: Villa Cielito

Villa Cielito is the only villa available for public rental in the ultra-exclusive private community of Chileno Bay. Villa Cielito (which translates to “little piece of heaven” in English) sits beachfront on the most swimmable beach in all of Los Cabos and offers its guests kayaks to explore the protected bay, making it the perfect choice for families with kids of all ages. From Villa Cielito, you are also just a golf cart ride away from Comal at Chileno Bay Resort, which is one of our favorite new-ish restaurants in Los Cabos.

Best Beachfront: Villa Mar de Vida

Villa Mar de Vida is one of the last remaining classic Cabo beach bungalows. It sits on a point in the gated community of Punta Bella, just south of Palmilla, with a private beach to the left and a semi-private beach to the right. There are only eleven beachfront villas in Punta Bella, which gives you the feeling of having this little beach hideaway all to yourself. In addition to ultimate privacy, Punta Bella’s beach also boasts nearly year-round swimmability.

Corporate Retreat: Villa La Roca

Villa La Roca epitomizes the grace and opulence for which the Pedregal neighborhood in Cabo San Lucas is famous. With 8 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, Villa La Roca can accommodate an impressive 32 guests, making it the perfect villa for your next corporate retreat. Villa La Roca has large indoor and outdoor dining for chef-prepared meals, a room that can be converted to a conference room for board meetings or group activities like yoga, a gorgeous infinity pool, and stunning ocean views.

Luxurious Getaway: Casa de Karma

If you want to be spoiled rotten in your own home, Casa de Karma is the villa for you. Casa de Karma has everything you need for the ultimate luxury in-villa experience—a professionally equipped kitchen for private chef meals, a swim-up bar for your butler to prepare and serve freshly shaken cocktails, a regulation-sized bocce court, a private bar and cocktail lounge, and a private outdoor terrace ideal for yoga and massages.
