ACAPULCO– Travel Agent is on hand for the annual Mexico Tianguis Turistico show where we attended a press conference by Los Cabos, in which the destination recapped measures being taken to bulk the luxury product.
Despite the challenges faced in 2009, Los Cabos has continued to grow and evolve, welcoming an array of new destination offerings within the last year.
The all-inclusive Barceló Los Cabos Palace Deluxe features 547 all-suite accommodations, including 34 unique swim-up suites, the first and only ones of its kind in the destination. Designed in the California hacienda style, the Barceló Los Cabos stylishly blends classic Mexican charm with modern, luxurious amenities, including three pools, a children-only water park and world-class spa with 16 private treatment cabins and a hydrotherapy room.
