Chef Surprise at Capella Pedregal in Los Cabos

The sun was once again shining on the Capella Pedregal resort in Cabo San Lucas and my friend Lynn and I were ready to take full advantage of it on our final day.   We started off with a leisurely breakfast at Don Manuel’s Restaurant. Julieta Hernandez of the Los Cabos Tourism Board joined us and told me about some of the new hotels going up in the area. She also told me a bit about nearby La Paz and the whale shark tours. I had known that as a Mexican playground for Hollywood stars Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo boasted many fine resorts, but I didn't realize until our conversation how many more there were in this area that were among the best in the world. I promised Julieta I would return soon to check out more of the Baja Peninsula and then headed to enjoy my final pool day for a long while. Even though my foot had just been stitched and I couldn’t go in the water, I enjoyed a few hours in front of Capella’s massive infinity pool under warm sunn

Day of Luxurious Fun at Capella Pedregal Cabo San Lucas

The sunrise from my balcony at Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, was so beautiful I didn’t mind that I was up so early and had almost forgotten I was still in a wheelchair from my injury. I vowed to enjoy the day anyway and that didn’t seem hard at a place as beautiful as this. Breakfast was outside at Don Manuel’s where we had a view of the ocean. My friend Lynn took a little of everything from the buffet and I just had some of their warm doughnuts with jam and a side of yogurt to start my day. Adriana Silva, the resort’s Public Relation Coordinator, took us on a tour around the property after breakfast. We were far from the only ones who thought Capella Pedregal was incredible. It had been bestowed the rare AAA Five Diamond award. The tour took us by golf cart in and out of the buildings, including one area that was reserved mostly for families.  It reminded me a bit of some of the resorts I had visited in Arizona with cacti between the casitas.

Introduction to Capella Pedregal

We were up early for our last room service breakfast at Hotel El Ganzo . I hadn’t expected to be continuing my trip in a wheelchair, but an accident had left me resting a dislocated toe, torn ligament and deep cut a bit longer. I was in Los Cabos, though, and determined not to let the injury keep me from enjoying it – especially since my friend Lynn and I were heading to one of the most acclaimed resorts in Mexico, Capella Pedregal . I had heard so much about this hotel and had actually been trying for two years to plan a trip there. As much as I had looked forward to the other two hotels in Los Cabos , it was this one I had been waiting for. The excitement began before we arrived as the driver took us through the private tunnel in the mountain that leads to the grand entrance at Capella Pedregal.  We were a bit disappointed that it was raining, but since the weather had been beautiful all week (and looked to be again), we didn’t let it ruin our mood.
