At the exclusive, 17-acre Esperanza Resort between Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo the beautiful spa is reached by way of a stone path over a koi pond. At check-in you're presented with an agua fresca, a healthy drink made with papaya or mango, or other fruits and herbs. Before your treatment, linger in the grotto, enjoying the Pasaje de Agua (water passage) therapy, which includes steam caves and a waterfall. Treatments incorporate local ingredients,
tropical fruits, and ocean-based products. Look for such pampering as the papaya-mango body polish, the grated-coconut-and-lime exfoliation, the four-hands massage, and the Mexican beer facial. Yoga classes are held at 7:45 and 9 each morning for $35.
