Holidays at Esperanza Resort Making Spirits Bright


This winter, we invite you to discover a new series of festive experiences that bring loved ones together. Discover the enchantment of a winter holiday at Esperanza, where elevated experiences come together amidst unspoiled natural beauty for a Baja California Dreamin’ holiday to remember. Wind through the deep desert canyons of the Baja outback on a Polaris RZR, let go of negative thoughts during a private intention-setting sea turtle release, and gather for celebratory holiday meals on our rocky promontory overlooking the sparkling Sea of Cortez. Magical moments set the stage for a festive season that will leave you feeling invigorated and filled with joy.

Sunset and Ponche Private Glamping Beach Dinner | Signature Experience

For centuries, Ponche Navideño has filled homes with sweet festive aromas and filled hearts with the spirit of the holidays. At Esperanza, a peaceful respite along the coast in Los Cabos, Mexico, guests will learn about this traditional Mexican drink as the prelude to a private beach glamping gathering. Under the canopy of a private luxury tent, this elaborate dinner connects guests to one another and to the powerful surrounding nature of the Baja Peninsula. With a goal to ignite the spirit of giving, we will be donating 15% of this signature festive experience to Baby2Baby.

A new series of festive experiences

Cacao Ceremony

Join us in this fun, uplifting experience where you will sing, pray and set intentions together to the beat of ancient drums and chants in a safe environment. Cacao bore great significance in Mayan mythology, with cacao ceremonies used not only for medicinal and spiritual purposes, but also for inner awakenings and creative guidance.

California Dreamin’ Cocktail Class

Enjoy a welcome ponche as you immerse in the festive spirit and learn how to prepare three different cocktails inspired by the spiced Mexican fruit punch traditionally served during the holidays. In this interactive, drop-in class, you will learn the art of blending with Nacho’s garden herbs and ingredients for holiday cocktails you will want to make any time of year.

Pickleball Tournament

Serve, shadow, smash – get in on the action at Esperanza’s second pickleball tournament of the year, open to guests and locals alike. All entrants receive special amenities including tournament T-shirts and more.
