MENTION THE WORD TEQUILA TO A foreigner, or anyone not from

Mexico, and chances are that visions of overzealous partiers wearing gigantic sombreros, all while slamming shots of the powerful liquor, might come to mind. For those from Mexico, however, tequila represents something different; it is a drink born, perfected, and enjoyed here—a product Mexicans take great pride in serving to the world. 16

CABO WABO PRODUCTION Cirilo Oropeza, Master Distiller at Distiladora San Nicolas which produces the world-famous Cabo Wabo Tequila, shares what makes their process so unique. Growing & Harvesting: Cabo Wabo starts in the agave fields of the Los Altos region of Jalisco. There, agave flourish in the rocky ground, drinking in the iron-rich water which gives it a bolder flavor. The Extraction: After the agave heart (or ‘piñas’) are cut and inspected, they are sliced and cooked for 18-20 hours to extract the maximum sweet flavor of the agave juice. Fermentaion: The juice is then sent to the fermenters, where special proprietary yeast is added to convert the sugars to alcohol. The fermentation process takes 96 hours, much longer than other tequilas, to squeeze every ounce of rich agave flavor. Distillation & Aging: It is then double distilled, as is tradition. Next, the Reposado and the Añejo are aged in American oak barrels to perfection. The Blanco is an unaged tequila. Cabo Wabo is also unique in that it uses a deeper char in the barrel aging process. All of this delivers a robust, agave-forward rock and roll tequila.

Untamed Baja — Eco-Adventures

any Los Cabos visitors only catch a glimpse of Baja’s mysterious

desert terrain as they cruise along the high-

way en route to their luxury beachfront resort or private villa. And, while plenty of visitors get a taste of the charms of the Sea of Cortez while aboard a sunset cruise, on a snorkel tour or astride a jet ski, plenty of magic lies ahead for those willing to detour from the standard tourist route. If you’re looking for a more unusual way to experience the awe-inspiring natural beauty of Los Cabos on land and sea, here are a few of our favorite eco-tours to take you off the beaten path. Even if you’re a seasoned Cabo visitor, you may just discover a new adventure lying around the corner.

PLAYAS PERFECTAS BAJA’S BEACHES ARE PERFECT FOR SOAKING UP THE SUN

by ERCILIA MEDEIROS

photos by ROBERT TRAMA

SEVERAL PRISTINE GEMS AND LOCAL FAVORITES stand out from the sandy crowd in Los Cabos. While a number of Los Cabos beaches are inadvisable for swimming due to strong undertows and wave action (always mind warning flags and respect surf conditions), most are perfect for strolling, sand castle building and enjoying the sunshine. Here are a few of our top picks for a perfect day at the beach. PALMILLA PARADISE. The sun-drenched beach at Palmilla is one of the area’s most attractive, and a popular spot with both locals and visitors.

If you’re looking for the ultimate in privacy and personality at a pleasing price tag, you may be a candidate for a villa vacation. More families, groups and wedding parties are discovering what savvy villa devotees have long known—that it’s possible to enjoy a swank getaway in a villa rental without breaking the bank. Here are some top reasons a villa getaway makes sense:

©20 11 ROBERT TRAMA / ©2011 DANNY RAMI REZ / ©2010 KEVI N DENNIS

1 VACATION VALUE — If

2 A CUSTOMIZED

you think you can’t afford a villa getaway with a private pool and amazing ocean views, you might be surprised at just how reasonable a vacation rental can be—and how competitive it often is with a comparable resort stay, especially for groups and families. Ranging from magnificent estates to cozy homes, we have villas for groups from 2 to 28 guests. When you divide up the cost of a villa stay between your group, it’s often less expensive per night, per guest than staying in a hotel.

EXPERIENCE — We know

Plus, with our lowest price guarantee, you can be confident you’re getting the best rate on your villa. And, of course, you can save even more by making use of your villa’s well-equipped kitchen and grill to prepare your own meals. When you book your stay with us, you can also take advantage of our free extras, like complimentary airport-to-villa transfers, welcome drinks and appetizers upon arrival, and free car rental delivery to your villa.

that all travelers have different tastes, budgets and visions of what their perfect trip should be—so we don’t sell “one-size-fits-all” vacations. Whether you’re looking for a remote retreat, a lavish villa with all the frills or a convenient home base close to downtown, our experienced team is well versed in helping every guest find their ideal villa. We can also help you plan all the extras including fishing and yacht charters, gourmet private chef services, relaxing in-villa spa services, a full itinerary of exciting activities and more.

3 PRIVACY

AND COMFORT — Nothing beats

the experience of relaxing around your private swimming pool, grilling out on your own ocean-view terrace or kicking back with friends in your personal jacuzzi. While resorts offer their own benefits, visitors sometimes have to contend with less-than-pleasant guests and busy swimming pools. When you stay in a

villa, you can be assured that you and your friends have a comfortable home away from home, where the only schedule is your own.

4 GROUP AND FAMILY FRIENDLY — Villas offer an ideal blend of wonderful gathering spaces and private areas—so that guests can enjoy both their own personal space and inviting communal areas for celebration. Hang out around the swimming pool with family or take a nap in your plush suite—there’s plenty of room for everybody. We even have villas with game rooms, theater rooms, putting greens and more—in other words, our villas set the scene for fun. Big, well-equipped kitchens are ideal for the chefs in the group. And, of course, nothing beats the security and privacy of a villa.

5 SUPPORT AND INSIDER EXPERTISE — For a quarter century, our team has been the premier villa rental company specializing exclusively in Los Cabos, Mexico. Our long-standing rela-

tionships with the area’s finest vendors and properties, our intimate knowledge of the destination, and commitment to exceptional service means you’ll benefit from our extensive expertise. These are just a few reasons our team has been recognized for six consecutive years as a top Villa Specialist in Mexico by Condé Nast Traveler and rated “Excellent” on TripAdvisor and FlipKey. From beginning to end of your vacation, a dedicated team member will assist you with all your vacation needs. In Los Cabos, your local guest concierge is available to ensure a perfect stay. Nothing gives us greater satisfaction than helping you make your dream villa vacation a reality.

“Los Cabos is a beautiful destination, easy to get to, and full of sun and fun! This will be our third villa vacation; we love the location and having the villa all to ourselves. Everything we could want is provided or within easy reach, and our villa is beautifully maintained. Watching the whales cavorting off shore from our villa terrace is always a highlight, and our guys love to golf at the fabulous courses near Cabo.” Sue, San Diego, CA
