Average time to visit
Baja California is a rare destination that offers a great getaway year long. Peak time for travel is when weather is temperate in the low 20ºc range and whale watching opportunities are at their best (late-November to April). This also includes the festive holiday and New Year period. Cool temperatures are ideal for desert adventures and hiking and boating for wildlife viewing and island exploration. Summer (April to September) can be hot and humid but the beaches are less crowded. Summer waters are ideal for snorkelling and diving. Hurricanes are much less common than in the Caribbean, but it is something to be aware of for September and October travel which is considered low season.
Baja is blessed with two marine life rich oceans; the Sea of Cortez to the east has a warmer sea temperature than the more exposed than the Pacific Ocean to the west. In the summer the breeze coming from the Pacific is a blessing. For surfing, waves break on the eastern side of the peninsula March to October and on the Pacific west November to March.
When planning your visit, it is worth noting the peninsula's main fiestas. Each March San Jose del Cabo throws an 11-day long Fiesta Patronal with parades and carnival and La Paz holds a similar event. Easter is also a busy time for Mexican's heading to the beach to celebrate Semana Santa and September 16 is Mexican Independence Day.
Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, formerly known as Resort at Pedregal, is an exclusively private resort reached through torch lit carved tunnel in the mountains where guests are pampered with personal assistants, gourmet dining and a world-class spa.
Reached by an incredible torch lit tunnel carved through the mountains, Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, formerly known as The Resort atPedregal, is an exciting addition to the luxury hotel scene on Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.
With a picture-postcard position on the southernmost tip of Baja, it has a stunning oceanfront position from which the dramatic waves can be seen crashing against the shore. The resort consists of 113 luxurious and spacious rooms, all with a private terrace and plunge pools. They are fitted out with hand-crafted Mexican details and state-of-the-art amenities. The grounds are glorious, with palms, cactus, sculptures and huge stone vases dotting the property, as well as three beautiful pools.
Service is exemplary, with personal assistants assigned to each guest, while the food is exquisite, ranging from real Mexican food served at Don Miguel’s to the seafood restaurant El Farallon tucked into a cliff above the ocean.
During your stay here you can spend your time relaxing at the hotel by the inviting pool, being pampered in the spa, listening to the lapping waves at the beach or in the privacy of your room. Alternatively you can explore the local town - discover the artisan shops, dine at the local restaurants or charter a yacht to explore the coastline.

Villas, rooms and casitas each feature a terrace with spectacular ocean views, with refined, upscale touches, such as specially chosen reading material, luxury amenities, premium bedding and a private plunge pool.

From the drama of the crashing waves to the entrance through a torch lit tunnel, Resort at Pedregal has been designed to emphasise the great natural environment which surrounds it and a great attention to detail is evident throughout.
I loved my stay here - the rooms were tastefully Mexican in style yet contemporary, food and drinks were delicious and the views from almost everywhere within the resort were fantastic. Service was attentive but never too full on and the range of activities on offer was a big selling point.
We were fortunate enough to enjoy a treatment in the spa and it was a great experience - the traditional Mexican foot treatment to begin was a great touch and the massage was perfect. Could not recommend it enough.
From the resort's entrance via a jaw-dropping 1,000-foot-long tunnel carved through the mountain, to the seafood restaurant El Farallón tucked into a cliff above the ocean, to the views of whales and dolphins splashing in the surf, the focus at Capella's new property on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula is on making the impossible feel routine. Eight contemporary buildings (some of which back right into the mountains) house 66 rooms on 24 acres of dramatic yet manicured bluffs. Huge stone vases, metal turtle sculptures, Jurassic-size shells, and dozens of varieties of cactus dot the property, while three curvy public pools—two freshwater and one salty—snake through the grounds. Rooms, the smallest of which measure 820 square feet, take on a Mexican gothic look and, happily, include private plunge pools, stand-alone tubs, one-button fireplaces, and complimentary minibars. Personal assistants assigned to each guest will eagerly fulfill even the most self-indulgent request. Lunch options consist of upscale twists on the usual burgers-and-salads resort fare, but the breakfast buffet at Don Manual's is elevated to craft with bountiful fruits and fresh pastries and no fewer than five milk options, all presented in a warm, rustic kitchen.

There is a real sense of drama to The Resort at Pedregal, right from the moment you drive through a specially created tunnel through the mountain to get there, to the visionary entrance and lobby areas, to the Pacific surf that pounds against the southermost point of Baja. Rooms are very large and are great if you like maximalist design, each with a private plunge pool, and the service is as exemplary as you would expect, but what truly sets the Resort at Pedregal apart is the food. Dine at the open-air cliffside Farellon restaurant and you might be at a table next to George Clooney, dining on fresh abalone or Pacific King scallops the size of a large fillet steak as huge waves crash beneath you. Dine in the indoor gourmet restaurant and have a Hollywood-style alcove to yourself. The idea is to see but not be seen.
