You might have noticed that the part of Mexico where President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were engaged in diplomatic and economic talks during the G-20 Summit looked nothing like the impoverished border towns we’ve seen in the news related to illegal immigration and violent drug cartel wars.
That’s because they were at, according to Travel and Leisure, one of the top 50 resort hotels in the world, the Esperanza in Los Cabos. In fact, the Esperanza is listed as #23.
Here’s the skinny on the place, just in case you want to book your own presidential-style summit with your significant other.
57 rooms with oversize tubs and handcrafted furniture (plus an infinity pool overlooking a private cove) on the Sea of Cortés.
Stats: 42 rooms; 15 suites; 4 restaurants; 1 bar.
Rooms to book: All rooms are ocean view; higher-up Palapa Casitas afford the best views of humpback whales during migration.
Insider tip: Tequila tastings are held in El Restaurante, where you can toast the view of Land’s End.
Cost: Doubles from $475.
