We spent the whole day on an abandoned bridge near Hollister Ranch with a gorgeous view of the coast,” she says. “It was such a cinematic location.” With the combination of the young Latin duo’s popularity, the video has had more than 47,000,000 (yes, million) views.

WHO’S THAT GIRL? Internationally known actress Camilla Belle started her career at the tender age of 9 months old, attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London as a teenager, and has worked with directors such as Steven Spielberg (The Lost World: Jurassic Park ) and actresses Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock (Practical Magic).
Camilla’s S.B. Go-Tos Lunch or an early dinner at LA SUPER-RICA TAQUERIA, 805-963-4940. I’ve been going there since I was a kid and will even drive up to S.B. for the day just to drink the horchata and eat tortillas with queso fundido con chorizo. At the OLD MISSION SANTA BARBARA, 805-682-4713, santabarbaramission.org, you feel like you’re walking through the set of Zorro. It is a really peaceful place to visit because of the architecture and history. A pit stop at MCCONNELL’S ICE CREAM , 805-3244402, mcconnells.com—their flavors are delicious and the fact that it is made locally makes it more special. I have stayed at the BACARA RESORT & SP A 888968-0100, bacararesort.com, a few times before and have always thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. The grounds are beautiful, the food is good, and sunset views are perfect.
