As travel restrictions ease and the world opens up little by little, now is a great time to start planning your next trip. But instead of thinking about staycations and regional road trips, why not consider traveling to a more far flung destination? Somewhere that will not only allow you to play, but learn and work remotely should you need to.
One such place is Los Cabos. This Mexico resort city is most often praised for its pristine beaches, water activities, and nightlife. And while all of those things are great, Los Cabos has even more to offer.
Whether you plan on staying for a week, a season, or longer, you’ll find plenty of ways to work, learn, and play in Los Cabos.
Here are some ideas to get you started.
The remote work revolution is alive and thriving around the world. And thanks to its warm weather and decent wifi, Los Cabos has seen its share of digital nomads setting up office in resorts, hotels, and in beachfront villas.
There is no doubt that having such stunning views can renew the mind and create space for a new way of working. Many hotels and resorts offer business lounges where you can catch up on emails. Or set up a private office space in an office bungalow, like the one Chileno Bay Resort offers. Rent an all-day spot where you’ll have access to high-speed wifi, a menu of mouthwatering food, epic views, and a three-tiered infinity pool perfect for dipping into during your lunch break.
The great thing about booking a stay through a resort or hotel, is that you’ll have all of your needs covered. Even the Hard Rock Hotel is now offering remote office spaces that give you access to work stations, conference rooms, in-room dining, free long-distance calls, and daily activities (dinner, spa treatments, pool area, etc.).
But should you want to venture out onto your own, vacation rentals, private villas, and apartments are also available. Depending on your budget and amenity needs, you can find everything from humble Cabo casas to luxurious ocean-view condos. You can even settle into a cozy coworking office space should you want a more traditional atmosphere.
Even if you’re on vacation and looking to do more playing than learning, Los Cabos offers plenty of opportunities to discover new passions and learn new things. And oftentimes, you’ll find that the learning feels incredibly similar to playing!
For example, you can find all kinds of educational workshops and tours that steep you in Los Cabos history and culture. Explore the Baja outback and enjoy a nature walk with a Pericu shaman. Learn to craft your own garden-fresh cocktails using local herbs. Take up paddle boarding or surfing. Stroll the historic streets of San Jose del Cabo. Check out an art museum. Learn the history of Mexican cuisine.
Some places even offer private tutoring sessions and remote schooling opportunities so you can travel with the family without having to worry about the kids missing school. And for those interested in enriching grown-up classes, you can find resorts that offer adult education courses inspired by Cabo culture.
As a resort town, Los Cabos has plenty of entertainment and activities to keep you busy. From water sports to city strolling, you’ll find something to suit your vacation style.
If you’d love to get away and immerse yourself in a few rounds of golf, you’ll hit the goldmine in Los Cabos. As the home to over a dozen championship courses, you’re spoiled for choice. Chileno Bay Resort, for instance, offers a private 18-hole course overlooking the Sea of Cortez. There’s also the elite One & Only Palmilla, a 27-hole course designed by actor Jack Nicklaus.
If golfing is not your go-to activity, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to entertain yourself. Have a picnic on the beach, indulge in a spa treatment, kayak Chileno Bay, snorkel or scuba dive, sail through the Sea of Cortez, explore fishing villages and marinas, shop til you drop, or simply lounge by the pool and catch up on your reading.
Thanks to pandemic procedures and Covid fatigue, Los Cabos is quickly becoming one of the top spots for people looking to work, learn, and play outside of their home bubbles. As you can see, this Baja Mexico destination is ripe with opportunities for individuals and families to celebrate, educate, and take care of business. So whatever it is you’re looking to do – and for however long – you’ll easily find what you want and need under the blue skies of Cabo.
