40 best romantic getaways
These days, locals refer to Mexico’s Baja Peninsula as La Frontera, the frontier, because it remains largely undeveloped, except for the peninsula’s tip at Los Cabos, where the desert blooms with luxe resorts. But you can still find a quiet spot to relax with a chilly Pacifico beer and a succulent shrimp taco. Stay at the recently renovated, 56-room Esperanza, where the Technicolor sunsets look digitally enhanced. Escape to the resort’s hidden garden by the sea, with a view of humpback whales migrating right offshore. Don’t miss a tasting of Mexico’s Baja, Querétaro, and Coahuila wines at El Restaurante.
