Mexico Resort Calls You Up The Coast

For surf, beach, and bar lovers, Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas has it all. But those with a desire for the unbeaten path have a new diversion up the coast in the CAMINO REAL LORETO, BAJA. The three-hour road trip between the tip of Baja and the midcoast resort glimpses the rural parts of the peninsula along the pristine Sea of Cortez. Backed by the Giganta Mountains and bordered by an 18-hole golf course, the 155-room seaside property offers out-your-door kayaking, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, and whale watching. Even if you’ve come for the rugged beauty, you’ll appreciate the bright decor of the rooms and the margaritas mixed at five bars and restaurants. From $140. (800) 873-7484,
