Romantic Ideas for Valentine’s Day & Beyond, at Mexico Hotels
Desperate for the perfect venue to celebrate Valentine’s Day? It’s not too late to book a luxurious, secluded getaway in Mexico. Here are some ideas to get the romantic vibes flowing.
Valentine’s Day Packages in Los Cabos, Mexico
Capella Pedregal: This resort’s “Romance Under the Stars” package includes a private dinner under the stars and a dinner at El Farrallon Oceanside Terrace, where the Pacific waves crash up with dramatic and romantic effect.
Esperanza Resort: The “Romance Para Dos” package here includes a tequila and artisanal chocolate tasting, as well as a dinner for two and 90-minute spa treatment (the package is available through December 19, 2013, so don’t worry if you can’t make it on Valentine’s Day). Prices start at about $875 per night, for a minimum four-night stay.
Las Ventanas al Paraiso: The “Pure Romance” package includes roundtrip airport transfers in a Mercedes G-500, Moet et Chandon Champagne and rose petals upon arrival, full breakfast and dinner for two daily, and one couple’s massage. The package is already sold out for the days right around Valentine’s Day, but you can book it for later in February for prices starting at about $1,768 for four nights — and the deal is available through December 18, 2013.
Valentine’s Day Dinner in San Miguel de Allende
Hotel Matilda: This stylish small hotel in San Miguel de Allende, a member of Design Hotels, is setting the table for a “Supper Club” that will showcase the culinary creativity of three of Mexico’s top chefs. Held over Valentine’s Day Weekend, on Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, the first Supper Club of 2013 will be a multi-course feast and wine pairing in Hotel Matilda’s Moxi Restaurant.
The three chefs collaborating on the menu include Enrique Olvera, the operator of Moxi Restaurant and owner of the much-praised Mexico City restaurant, Pujol, which is #36 on the San Pellegrino list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Also working in the kitchen is Guillermo González Beristáin, who opened the Monterrey restaurant Pangea after time spent at Michelin-starred restaurants in France and Spain, and Diego Hernández Velasco Baquedano, who was named one of the most promising chefs of 2011 by Travel + Leisure, and who operates Corazon de Tierra (Heart of the Earth), a restaurant in Baja’s Guadalupe Valley.
The three culinary masters are developing a surprise menu for the evening. The dinner will start at 7:00 pm and the cost per person is 1,800 pesos, or about $142.
