Villa Buenaventura is conveniently located close to downtown Cabo, so dinner reservations will be easy when you hire a car to take you back and forth. There are mosquitoes, don’t forget to wear repellant. The pool is not heated from June to October due to warm weather. The beach in front of the house is beautiful, but it is not a swimming beach. It is full of rocks and tide pools. There is a private swimming beach just a short walk or golf cart ride from the house, located at the Punta Ballena Beach Club.

Though they are interesting to look at, watch out for the thorny & sharp trees in the courtyard.

The private beach front palapa, the mexican artwork, the layout of the house- which is positioned perfectly to capture amazing sunsets, but also is very open and centered around a courtyard with a huge star-shaped fire pit.

Notes from Misha: Villa Buenaventura was serene, luxurious, and perfect for our Mexican getaway. I stayed here for a bachelorette party with a group of girls and we had loads of fun! My favorite activity was zip lining with Cabo Adventures, where we got to rock climb and do a bunch of crazy stuff while surrounded by a beautiful nature setting. The Office was my favorite spot for dinner, not only because it was lively and fun, but because it had a totally unique atmosphere that I haven’t experienced anywhere else! As a member of Inspirato, they will set all of that stuff up for you.
