Even though you are living your life at a quarter of your usual pace at Del Mars Hacienda 502, it is impossible to get bored. There are games to play, a lively ping pong match on the on the patio, board games by the pool or video games in any one of many rooms. There is the simple act of hanging out with people that matter to you by the pool, cocktails in hand, and a tray of gourmet savories on the way, as you watch dolphins arc in the distance. It is not just time or life that slows, the whole planet seems to have lost a thousand years. There is nothing to worry about that your concierge, butler or chef cannot fix. Your only act of decision will be to discern what your appetite is telling you and then act on it, or not. There is much to be said about the comforts of making no choices at all, of the joys of doing nothing at all.
But when the moment calls for a choice to be made about what to do with the day, where to go, what to do because it is, after all, your vacation, you find yourself blessed by a panoply of tempting possibilities. You can have an adventure in diving, snorkeling and sailing in the Sea of Cortez, UNESCO-protected waters tabbed the aquarium of the world where you can race with dolphins, swim with sea lions, and watch various species of whales feed and calf in the balmy waters.
This is wonderful Los Cabos where you can go horseback riding, parasailing, surfing, gallery-hopping, and notion-shopping or take that browsing up a notch at the designer mall located in the marina at Cabo San Lucas. There are deserted beaches and colorful colonial art towns in easy reach. Or you can pull it back and spend time absorbed in golf or spa at Rosewood's One & Only Palmilla. The lavish luxury resort is located less than five minutes from your villa by the convenient golf cart waiting in your garage. Guests of Del Mar can enjoy a fresh seafood dinner, an afternoon of facials and nail treatments, or a challenging round of championship golf on the iconic Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed course that was the first in Latin America.
Or stay back and let the sea take you places you have never been while you watch it from your balcony as a massage therapist works your back and body. This is Baja your way, all the way. A simple conversation with the butler or call to your concierge and all the magic you have never been able to conjure in the life you just left behind is yours for the asking.
