When we are able to travel, there are some world-class wellness experiences that await you that can help restore your spirits. Here is a sampling:
Hidden off the beaten path, the naturally formed thermal springs of Los Cabos offer true relaxation and healing! The Los Cabos we know today was created by thousands of years of volcanic eruptions and seismic activity. The low level remaining volcanic activity that is active today helps heat the natural springs by shooting currents of bubbling hot water up from the earth to fill the thermal pools! Known to locals as early as 1900, the large spring at East Cape was the first hot spring discovered in the area. Since then, many more hot springs have been found, transformed and utilized, including “El Chorro Hot Springs,” “Santa Rita Hot Spring,” “San Jorge Hot Spring,” “the Natural Hot Springs of El Sargento,” to name a few.
