Overview

About 110 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, CostaBaja Resort & Spa is a sprawling resort that overlooks the Sea of Cortez. The resort plays up its coveted seaside location with a marina and access to sea kayaking, fishing, scuba diving and whale watching (some of which you can book through the resort's concierge). Guests also enjoy CostaBaja's beach, but suggest arriving early to snag a lounge chair. If lounging poolside is more your speed, then head over to the swim-up bar. When hunger sets in, you can choose from six on-site eateries (guests particularly love Steinbeck's and La Barcaccía for their enticing menu items, like smoked chicken and fresh fish entrees). And when the sun goes down, retreat to one of CostaBaja's guest rooms, which each come outfitted with complimentary wireless Internet access, a 42-inch flat-screen TV and a private balcony. Do note that the guest rooms have no bathtubs: Accommodations only contain glass-enclosed showers that are visible from the bedroom, so choose your roommates wisely.
