Like most foodies, it’s important for me to eat authentic and delicious meals when I travel. I truly want to learn about and enjoy the cuisine of the culture I’m visiting. When planning a vacation to an all-inclusive resort, it’s important to pay close attention to the quality and training of the chefs, because at some resorts food is oftentimes an afterthought. The Hacienda Encantada Resort and Spa located in Cabo San Lucas in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico combines perfectly prepared authentic Mexican cuisine with all the amenities of a luxury all-inclusive resort. The resort offers a unique dining experience that allows you to choose between an all-inclusive dining plan or the traditional European plan. Between the Hacienda Encantada and the Marina Golden Zone, there are 16 different dining options to please everyone.
The Hacienda Encantada Resort & Spa offers a luxury experience with studio rooms, suites, and private villas, all with excellent service. The traditional Mexican architecture and décor make the vacation feel like an authentic trip to Mexico, while guests still receive luxury amenities such as spa treatments, poolside service, and top notch dining experiences.
The mountain and beach landscape is absolutely breathtaking, but it doesn’t stop there. Almost every view of the hotel is just as beautiful as the surrounding landscape. If you pay careful attention, you may even be able to see a humpback whale while dining waterside. Boat ride excursions are only a quick shuttle ride away at the Marina Golden Zone in downtown Cabo.
All the activities are fun at the Hacienda Encantada, but my favorite activity involves food. The resort offers a cooking class that you can book through the concierge. It’s an experience of a lifetime where you can learn how to cook authentic Baja cuisine. Not interested in cooking for yourself? The Baja cuisine is a must try at all the dining options. Almost all the restaurants offer the signature house-made pico de gallo and guacamole that you won’t want to miss.
