watching, it is easy to take advantage of an abundance of loungers and attentive pool staff and while away an afternoon being lulled into a dreamlike state by the rhythmic pounding of the surf. If swimming in the sea is a must, a calm cove can be accessed a short beach stroll away. Activities extend into the evening hours, although I found stargazing on my balcony with a nightcap to be the optimal way to ease into a restful night's sleep. Equally relaxing is the 13,000-square-foot Spa Marquis. Indigenous ingredients including cactus oils, agave, sea salt and seaweed factor heavily into the lineup of facial and body treatment options. Following your service, you can retreat to a trio of oceanfront whirlpools reserved for spa guests. Tempting as it is to remain in a state of supreme satiation without ever leaving the property, there are a few places within easy reach that are worth a visit. Numerous tour companies nearby provide paddleboard and sailing options to the famous arch of Cabo San Lucas, which marks the sport where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. e quaint and quiet Gallery District in San José del Cabo includes a mélange of art purveyors, ranging from listed artists to indigenous artisans. There are also excellent bars and restaurants in the area—La Revolución, Baja Brewing Company and Paleteria Tropical were among our favorites. Travel a little further afield along a dirt road to reach Los Tamarindos, an organic farm and restaurant that dates back to the 19th century. Seated at a rough-hewn table in the shadow of a late 1800s stone brick farmhouse, we feasted on delicacies including their signature dish—octopus on a bed of arugula with house made habanero sauce—as well as a salad made of heirloom tomatoes so naturally sweet they could have sufficed as dessert. Our farm-to-table feast was complemented by wines from Mexico's Valle de Guadalupe. From foodies to fitness enthusiasts, Marquis Los Cabos Hotel and Spa makes it easy to go all-in for their all-inclusive experience. Rates from $435 to $2,308 double per night all-inclusive with taxes.
