Curator’s statement

Cabo San Lucas is the perfect destination for anything, but especially reconnecting with friends! I like to think of it as the place where the desert meets the beach. A perfect spot for families, honeymoons and especially girls' getaways! A quick hop from the west coast (a bit longer from the East) and you are listening to the waves crash with a craft cocktail in hand. Whether you plan to relax and spa or are in the mood for something more adventurous, an unforgettable weekend awaits!
