Baja California Sur: part of a peninsula encircled by the Pacific and the romantically-titled Sea of Cortez. A bit confusing to those unfamiliar with the area, it’s not part of California but is actually the smallest state in Mexico. And at the very foot of the peninsula you’ll find Los Cabos: a traveler’s playground boasting some of the most luxurious properties in the country.

Mexico is mammoth, its many corners offering something unique to travelers no matter their tastes or budget. Yet for lovers of sand and sea, here are three must-see all-inclusive resorts in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Hotel Riu Palace Cabos San Lucas
Hotel Riu Palace is just that: a tremendous bit of palatial architecture. The grounds lay themselves out like a castle, with splendid sea views from nearly every part of the resort and water features cleverly woven throughout to create a truly picturesque landscape.

Though targeted more for upscale adult travelers than wild spring-breakers, all rooms come with Riu’s popular built-in liquor dispenser so you don’t even have to leave your room for a cocktail. When you’re ready to explore, the all-inclusive resort is alive 24-hours a day—so whether you take advantage of the water sports, incredible Renova spa or nightlife, you’ll never feel like you’re missing out.
