We spent a month driving the Baja peninsula, from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas, and Cerritos was, without a doubt, one of our very favorite places.
Just an hour from Cabo, the area (which includes Todos Santos 15 minutes to the north) feels a million miles from tourist hustle and bustle of the cape. With an incredibly beautiful and swimable beach, pleasantly temperate weather, and the most amazing sunsets we'd seen, we could see ourselves buying a plot of land here, or going turn-key with a bungalow at the villas.
We stayed in a nicely appointed two bed, two bath second story unit. They are large and well designed, and after travelling through a few dusty desert locales, they felt like the lap of luxury! All villas include a full kitchen, and huge balcony that overlooks the Pacific. It’s an incredible view, and wonderful place to wake up and enjoy coffee and breakfast.
Resort facilities are centered around a large pool with hot tub, restaurant, and swim-up bar. Wifi is also available. We visited in July, so the restaurant was closed for the season, but on the upside, we had the run of the place. The staff is friendly and helpful, with most everyone speaks English.
The villas are quick walk to the beach. I swam every morning, and every morning I marveled both at its beauty, and the fact it was nearly empty. On weekends, especially Sundays, it gets busier, making it a great time to people watch and hangout for the day under a beach umbrella.
Catch the sunset from Hacienda Cerritos, where you’ll spend a ridiculous sum for a drink, or for free on the bluff just north of the hotel. In either case, watching the sun sink into the ocean here should not be missed.
We already miss southern Baja and the Cerritos/Todos Santos area, and we'll certainly come back to the villas, hopefully in the coming year. Highly recommended.
