ElHerraderoLosCabos.com DAY 2 SAN JOSE DEL CABO We got up early to attend the yoga by the pool and it was perfection. A good stretch and sweat in the balmy late summer air and off to a two courses breakfast at the Acre restaurant FRUITS OF THE DAY with honey, flowers, and baja herbs followed by FRENCH TOAST on brioche, strawberry jam, maple syrup and pecans. This farm to table restaurant serves only local ingredients. Delish. Curious about all the luxury resorts going in the 20-mile stretch between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas including the Viceroy, Montage and the 3 year old Cape Hotel we stopped in to see the allure. The Cape (part of The Thompson Hotel Group) has a striking entrance, a perfect view of the Arch of Cabo San Lucas and a unexpected Mexican modern chic to it. I was greeted by Raquel, the marketing director and Mexican local who described all the hotel amenities and the incredible Mexican architects Javier Sánchez and Benedikt Fahlbusch and Interior Designer Marisabel Gómez Vázquez who put their passion into creating the beautiful resort It's the super sexy place to relax and be seen.
After dark we return to the tree house at Acre, and get ready for our dinner reservation at the renowned restaurant. Chef Kevin Luzande’s food is a marriage of global influences and local ingredients that evolves with the seasons. We feasted on Kumiai Oysters from Todos Santos, Tataki Catch of the day and Charred Octopus, followed by mango sorbet and Spiced Abuelita’s Hot Chocolate Cake what a delight and a meal to remember.

Then we decided to go for a swim looking for a local’s beach we happen upon Chileno Beach, this beautiful stretch of sand between two resorts. An uncrowded free parking lot, and great amenities, I see why locals would want to keep this place a secret. Although the sunset was behind us, we jumped the waves of the Sea of Cortez and collected shells on the beach. Swim days are paradise. An insider’s tip says: During whale season, take a moment to hold your head underwater and just listen. You may be rewarded with the sweet singing of a humpback whale.
