Rancho Pescadero

with Ashley Wick
  • Where:Todo Santos

  • Why:We had a week to kill in between two weddings in Mexico and it seemed
    like our kind of place.

  • When:May 2013

  • Who:Me and my man.

Highs & Lows

  • The hotel is artfully landscaped and promotes privacy. There are plenty of places you can retreat to for a dip, to lounge in the sun, or star gaze…

  • Attention to detail; the hotel has anticipated your every need at the pool – from complimentary sunblock, straw hats and cucumber infused water on tap.

  • It is muy romantic. Don't bring your brother.

  • The rip tides are particularly strong near the hotel and it is not always safe to swim in the ocean.

  • The hotel offers a myriad of activities, but I wish there was more than one yoga class per day.
