Chileno Bay, Cabo San Lucas

Posted on Apr 14, 2017

My family traveled to Cabo San Lucas for spring break this year. I chose Cabo so we could see whales, ride camels (yes, you can ride camels in Cabo!), and sail around the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas, but also to stay at recently opened Chileno Bay, the newest hotel in Auberge Resorts’ collection. For those of you familiar with Auberge hotels (think Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch and Esperanza to name a few), any property that falls under their umbrella is guaranteed to be extraordinary, and Chileno Bay proved to be no exception. The service, setting, design, and cuisine are outstanding.
