Where to Stay in Baja California Sur

The Mexican state is having a hospitality moment and we rounded up six cool hotels for every trip budget

By Tansy Kaschak on 5.20.21

Baja California Sur has long attracted an eclectic stream of visitors. A land of distinct and contrasting character, the southern tip of the westernmost state of Mexico is a place where the desert meets the ocean and ancient cacti thrive side by side with unexpected, lush palm tree groves. For decades, its dusty trails, surf breaks, abundant marine life, farmlands and mountain ranges have drawn travelers in search of nature and outdoor adventures, while the more populated centers have instead become known for their young and extra lively visitors. Now, hotel lovers — and hotel creators — are flocking to the peninsula as lodging options start to abound and several new projects are known to be in the pipeline. The greater news is that there is already a cool and inspiring option for every budget and we rounded up some of our favorites independent hotels — with recommendations of what to do in the area inside each hotel review.
