Last Updated

Vacations have evolved a lot from just being an opportunity to knock back a margarita and relax in the sun on a beach with family and friends.

While that is still a well-loved pastime for many travelers, what a vacation can be now takes on many different forms.

One of the most popular is a chance to engage in well-deserved health and wellness activities, the kind that can quickly fall by the wayside in the super-competitive working world many Americans live in.

Furthermore, far from being a short-term fad, the trend of health and wellness vacations continues to grow in popularity year on year.

This means it shouldn’t come as a shock that the forward-thinking and American traveler-positive destination of Los Cabos has taken huge steps to ensure that this is the best choice for relaxing, unwinding, and improving both mental and physical health.

Surroundings Matter

Before diving into the almost endless choices available for Americans to boost their health and wellness in Los Cabos, it’s only right to point out just how beautiful this destination is.

The landscape that surrounds Los Cabos is some of the most beautiful in Mexico, the mix of deserted hillsides and other-worldly plant life that has grown up against the many stunning beaches really sets the scene.

And awesome landmarks like the arch perched out in the bay at Cabo San Lucas add an extra layer of stress-busting magic to this already unforgettable destination.

World-Class Spas

When it comes to Los Cabos, it’s as easy to find a high-luxury spa here as it is to find a Starbucks in New York.

And a lot of the time travelers don’t even need to leave their resort to find the right treatment for them, while there are many fantastic independent spas throughout the destination, health and wellness has become so important to travelers here that the majority of resorts their own in-resort spa.

Fishing Is In The Culture

Long before Los Cabos became a world-famous vacation destination it was a center of fishing. This is reflected in the amazing local seafood dishes that, even at the most humble of restaurants, are always prepared with super fresh produce.

Today, it isn’t just local fishermen that get in on the action, there are a huge number of fantastically organized and safe fishing charter trips on offer, and Americans from all over the United States flock here each year to take a crack at the famous Marlin.
