Just an hour north of Cabo, near the artist’s enclave of Todos Santos, lies a dirt road marked by a small sign. Head down it's dusty drive and you will end up at a quaint boutique hotel that lies on the Pacific coast of Baja. Rancho Pescadero will greet you with gardens full of fresh vegetables, rolling fields of flowers and walls awash in soft terracotta hues. As you get closer to the entrance you will spot  guests doing yoga poses in the pavilion overlooking the ocean. Longboards are neatly propped next to the front desk enticing you to book the surf lessons offered at the property. 

This oceanfront oasis is a nice reprieve from the glittering resorts of Cabo itself. Here you will find a much more adventurous yet laid-back crowd. The intimate, non-corporate resort sits on 15 acres and is lovingly cared for by Lisa Harper who opened the hotel in 2009 after drawing her vision on a scrap of paper a mere 18 months earlier. Lisa had owned the beachfront land for years and one morning while sitting in her Sonoma home, she brilliantly sketched what was to become the Rancho Pescadero of today. Now, on a balmy summer day, we found ourselves enjoying the fruits of Lisa's labor after being invited by The Wedding Artists Collective to go on a creative retreat.

Valle de Guadalupe has been coming up again and again in travel magazines and blogs that follow all things travel trends. With its abundance of great wineries, delicious and foodie-centric restaurants, gorgeous scenery, charming hotels and ease to travel to, this northwest corner of our beloved Mexico may just be the next hot spot.

Nestled among the uncharted territory, there’s a venue-in-the-making from the crew behind One Bunk (this one dubbed One Bunk Valle). As the venue is not yet complete, we were lucky to get in on a little of the action by scoring this photo shoot from the talented team at Luna Wild. Sit back and enjoy the inspo as we chat with the group of designers behind this styled elopement.

Imagine looking at a frozen waterfall cascading over a mountain ledge; a white icy hue enveloping the mountain side. After taking in the sublime, you find out that you are not looking at a waterfall at all. You are looking at Heirve El Agua, a mountain of illusion. 

This petrified mountain is the product of thousands of years of spring water rushing over the mountain side. What is left is the mineral deposits creating this natural facade. Time to cross this monumental mountain off your #BirthdayBucketList.
