JET SET EXPERIENCES: Viva Mexico! Best Resort Renovation

A dramatic and comprehensive revitalization of the already established and highly regarded Esperanza Resort in Cabo San Lucas is decidedly buzz worthy. The intimate, 57-room beachfront property is anchored in a contemporary design that evokes the finest coastal Cabo living. The contemporary rooms are restyled with sun-kissed warm palette of soft neutrals and local Mexican handcrafted furnishings. The sea-facing terraced pool features new lounge spaces and cabanas, while cliffside dining at Cocina del Mar Restaurant and Lounge Bar features dramatic candle lanterns to illuminate the hand-woven palapa. Why wouldn’t you?

In the heart of the Mayan World, the Yucatan Peninsula offers an intriguing blend of past and present, and Merida offers an ideal base for exploring both.  Merida (known as The White City) is a colorful metropolis filled with Spanish-colonial architecture, narrow cobblestone streets, historic plazas and centuries-old mansions. This is a perfect destination for travelers seeking culture as well as gourmet restaurants and luxury accommodations. Best of all, Merida is one of the safest locations in all of Mexico.

A memorable visit to Merida should include a stay in an authentic hacienda. Many of the local mansions have been turned into luxury boutique hotels with anywhere from 7-30 rooms. Jet Set World Travel recommends the sumptuous Hacienda Xcanatun as an exemplary way to capture the essence of this lifestyle. The former mansion is located about 15 minutes from the city center and features 18 uniquely designed and decorated suites. The surrounding gardens, ponds and sitting areas make it a place that is hard to leave.

If you prefer to stay in town with an even more boutique experience, Casa Lecanda is a must. This fashionable hotel sits in the historic center of Merida. Spacious gardens and terraces offer visitors a unique experience at this sanctuary within the city.

The Yucatan offers visitors a culturally very rich experience, and it is so easy to combine with a beach destination. Contact Michelle Pragnell at to learn more and think “beach +” for your next visit to Mexico!
