What have you planned for Valentine's Day? You know it's today right? Don't worry, there's still time to run out and buy something. But wouldn't you have preferred to organise a special romantic escape? Los Cabos, Mexico, is one of the world's most romantic destinations. If you're looking to ignite the passion, treat your partner to a memorable holiday or maybe even ask those three life-changing words, we've got the municipality's best romantic experiences to help you out.
1. Stay At An Adults-Only Hotel
Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort is a new all-suite resort on the stunning Pacific coast. Completely adults-only, relaxation and exclusivity are two key components to any stay. The All-Inclusive package is one option, which gives you unlimited gourmet a la carte dining, top-shelf spirits, and juice and soft drink. Day and night activities, themed parties, and pool and beach wait service are also included.
2. Six-Course Meal With A View
Enjoy a meal with your loved one and arguably Los Cabos’ best view, the famous Arch at sunset from Sunset da Mona Lisa. Dine on the Tattinger Terrace to start – oysters perhaps, with champagne – before moving on to a six-course meal with live music while soaking up a 180-degree view of the bay, mountains and Arch. Sunset da Mona Lisa was named one of the coolest five restaurants in the world according to the International New York Times.

3. Couples Massage At The Luna y Mar Spa
Head to the Luna y Mar Spa at the Resort at Pedregal and opt for the Damiana & Honey Moon (90 minutes). Native Baja cultures such as Guaycuras, Pericues and Cochimies used the damiana flower to increase energy, calm the nervous system, uplift the spirit, and primarily as a powerful aphrodisiac. This treatment, especially designed for couples, starts with a damiana leaf and sea salts body scrub to remove dead skin cells, followed by a damiana flower and honey wrap to deeply hydrate your skin. Conclude this experience with a full-body massage with damiana liquor oil to ease your muscles and senses in a deep state of relaxation. After your treatment has concluded, 30 minutes extra will be provided in the spa couple’s suite to further promote relaxation in a beautiful romantic setting.
4. Glass-Bottom Boat Ride To Lover’s Beach
Is there anything more romantic than a place called Lover’s Beach? Take a glass-bottom boat past the famous Arch and stop for an afternoon of snorkelling in the warm, clear Baja waters, teeming with colourful fish. More adventurous couples can hire kayaks and paddle to Lover’s Beach. If you’re lucky enough, you might spot a whale.
5. Underwater Weddings & Vow Renewals
Those wanting to make their love official or renew their vows, can do so a little differently to the every-day couple. Bahia Hotel and Beach Club now provides certified divers an exclusive underwater wedding in the Sea of Cortez. The wedding package includes pool training, gear, and a rehearsal and official ceremony dive at Land's End. You'll also received a veil, two replica rings, underwater bouquet (to throw to the fishes), bowtie, white lace garter (probably not a good idea to remove it with your teeth) and an official marriage minister. Underwater photos and champagne for a post-ceremony toast are also included.
