Los Cabos, Mexico is many things. A deep sea fishing capital. A world-class golf mecca. A major foodie destination. A beacon for those who love the mesmerizing desert meets ocean setting. But Cabo has also become a wellness retreat, a place where healthy minded travelers can relax, restore and recharge.

Situated a short private car service from San Jose del Cabo Airport is access to the good life or the Q Life, luxuriously crafted by Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort. You can spend countless hours putting around the award-winning Quivira Golf Club or sate culinary cravings with an all-inclusive dining plan that includes not only Pacifica’s four restaurants, but also the restaurants at three sister resorts in Cabo San Lucas. 

As for this yogi, I chose to indulge in the Armonia Spa wellness collection — a holistic approach that ventures beyond traditional spa services.

On the doorstep of Pacifica hotel’s Sunset Beach, I started my stay with sunrise yoga alongside the sights, sounds, and scents of the soothing Pacific surf. Stimulating serotonin, mindful physical practice produce a sense of euphoria and a gentle mental release; welcome sensations in this busy digital age.

Working out worked up my appetite; after light fare at the Whale Watching VIP lounge, my butler escorted me to my next wellness experience. Named among the three “Best Spas in Mexico and Central America” by Condé Nast Traveler, the ambiance at Armonia Spa lived up to its accolades and namesake: Armonia means harmony. From luxury facials to massage therapies, the treatments are designed to relax and revive.

The more popular items on the spa menu are the rituals using Armonia’s signature organic collection. My ritual began with an exotic exfoliation followed by a body wrap. I also got to enjoy a massage with sound healing during my stay. 

The spa treatments left me feeling completely content and ready to bask beachfront in a cabana or a pool sun lounger. My butler arranged all the reservations and the Aire Restaurant poolside service provided a carefree dining option, not to mention delicious craft cocktails from Aquabar Aire. Dinner at Quivira Steakhouse was preceded by a reception at the private Beach Club where stunning sunset cliffside views overlooking the ocean made me forget time.

“The real beauty of Quivira comes from living life at your own pace,” says Paloma Palacios, director of Q Life, “By celebrating the art of living well…residents can transform minutes into unforgettable moments.” The Q Life is a lifestyle club built around active pursuits or leisurely passions. My personal favorite of their seven wellness philosophy pillars is mindfulness.

One of my most memorable moments while visiting Pueblo Bonito Pacifica was the Divine Connection Heart-Opening Cacao Ceremony.

Of the many dining options, my trip wouldn’t have been complete without a visit to Perfect Balance at The Market at Quivira. The health bar sources organic ingredients to offer nutritious (and delicious) cold-pressed juices, wellness shots, smoothies, salads, snacks and more.

The Quivira Los Cabos setting at the tip of the Baja Peninsula is an adults only sanctuary for guests and residents to take a break from the workaday world, alleviate stress, and renew themselves. At Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, I got to take a deep breath, focus on wellness, and indulge in self-care and exploration. The Quivira experience felt like stepping onto my yoga mat, with upgraded sensory delights.
