Visiting Cabo San Lucas in January can be a welcome respite from the cold winter weather of the season in the majority of the states. In order to escape to Mexico, you can choose from the various activities available in the beginning of next year.
Grand Solmar Vacation Club members can enjoy a stay at Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa while venturing out to see what events to participate in.
One of the places to visit includes Todos Santos, which is a short day trip from Cabo San Lucas. This eclectic small town, referred to as one of Mexico’s magic towns, is an enclave for artisans. It is located near the top of the Baja Peninsula. Various shops and art galleries line the streets and offer many different items available for purchase as souvenirs to take back home. There is a half-day sightseeing private tour walking over the cobblestone streets to museums, galleries and a local winery. One of the highlights during this tour is a cultural visit to the mission of Nuestra Señora del Pilar.
Sticking to a cultural theme, members of Grand Solmar Vacation Club can take the Hideaway Villages tour in nearby Rancho Viejo. A visit to the House of Culture gives an education of how the local clothes are made. Saddlers and rustic furniture makers are also part of this tour. The regional zoo is down the road and the only one located in Baja South. Next is the tourist favorite fishing village of Los Barriles.
After sightseeing in the nearby towns, a return to Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa, offers Grand Solmar Vacation Club members luxurious resort style living. With the nickname of Ocean Paradise, this resort offers plenty of activities. Vacationers can swim in the infinity edge pools; lie out at the Solmar Beach that borders the resort, or simply relax in the luxurious suites.
Nothing yells relaxation like a visit to Playa Grande Spa, which sits on the premises awaiting the next guest to be pampered. Located right on the ocean, this gives members of Grand Solmar Vacation Club an opportunity to enjoy a couples or single massage for complete rejuvenation. Experience Mexican rituals for wellness that leave you with a tranquil spirit as well.
This hacienda-style resort has six restaurants serving distinctive international and Baja cuisine. One restaurant, Brigantine, overlooks the ocean and is a staple for fresh seafood. International dishes that include Mediterranean faire can be tasted at The Ridge Restaurant. Spanish and Mexican dishes can be found at another restaurant called Calima. Those who wish to keep up with various sports events can catch them while sipping on beer and wine with light snacks at Sports Bar. No matter what type of cuisine Grand Solmar Vacation Club members desire, there is a restaurant in this resort to fit the bill.
Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa offers many amenities both inside their suites and on the resort grounds. From swimming to dining and a visit to the spa for rejuvenation, vacationers will find something for everyone. Venturing outside the grounds to check out the small towns and cultural icons will also pique one’s interest in the local scene. There is no doubt a return visit will be in the works.
