Suite view: Villa La Estancia

On the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, where the desert meets the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez, is Los Cabos. The area works its natural charms to lure deep-sea fishing aficionados and avid golfers, eco-tourists and rock n’ rollers. The once-sleepy fishing village now offers a wide range of modern resorts.
    Catering to “the discriminating traveler” is the new Villa La Estancia, a luxury property on El Médano beach in Cabo San Lucas. The 158-suite resort and spa offers an intimate meeting setting for 15 to 200, with nearly 4,500 square feet of event space. Suites feature full kitchens, whirlpools and balconies.
    On the western tip of the peninsula, in Pacifica, is the 326-suite Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach. By November, the resort will open 7,000 square feet of meeting space and a 16,000-square-foot spa.
