Hacienda del Mar in Cabo San Lucas

We are staying at a beautiful resort that is along the shore of the Sea of Cortez about ten kilometres from Cabo San Lucas.  Hacienda del Mar has colonial style architecture painted in vibrant, warm tones.  The villas are surrounded by gardens, pathways and courtyards which attract hummingbirds, sapsuckers and a wide variety of other birds.  This is our second visit here and I took a little time to photograph the grounds on the way to the beach before sunrise the other day.

Hurricane Odile hit the Los Cabos area on September 14, 2014 unleashing 210 km/h winds and 6 hours of torrential rain.  The aftermath saw heavy destruction all along the coast and an unprecedented disruption to Cabo’s primary industry – tourism.  Hacienda del Mar was hit hard but, as seen throughout the area, the people here have done incredible work to get the resort not just back into service but I would say to a better than before state.  It’s a great place with very special people – we are lucky to be able to enjoy time with both.

  2. We were in this area in 2011 and enjoyed our time there. It was sad to see the destruction via hurricane Olilia. Pelicans are fun birds to photograph and great thieves-one stole away one with one of my son’s sandals!
