El Encanto de Cabo Pulmo
Cabo Pulmo is a National Marine Park located in one of the few such protected areas in Mexico. Despite being only a few hours north of Cabo San Lucas, Cabo Pulmo’s quiet and relaxed charm is a million miles away from the party scene in it’s big brother town.
El Encanto de Cabo Pulmo is a beautifully designed and decorated home away from home. The ‘wow’ moments start before you even open the gate and continue as you walk through the meticulously kept botanical gardens that surround the property. Orioles and Black-fronted Hummingbirds fly in every direction, and the vast array of cactus from around the world are dotted with brightly coloured flowers.
At the centre of it all sits the main house, a delight for the senses, with gorgeous bright colours and curves in all the right places. The big open windows allow you to bring the outside in, and enjoy the garden from the comfort of the living room. The house is decorated with incredible artwork throughout, and the attention to detail is impeccable.
A wooden archway to the side of the main house leads you to the beautiful casita, which is where we stayed. This adorable building is ideal for two, with a big four-post bed and open bathroom. Again, the design is elegant and inviting.
The porch is just amazing. With a big comfy hammock and two lovely adirondack chairs, it’s the perfect place to spend a day watching the world go by. The garden invites so much wildlife – it’s a nature lover’s dream. Birds sing from morning til night, landing in the trees before your eyes.
It’s easy to lose track of time. Before you know it you’ll be staring awe-struck as the sky turns an incredible wash of orange and purple, and the sun sets over the hills. Lighting the chimaneer as the sun goes down gives you even more time to enjoy the outdoors, and to take in the incredible night sky with more stars than I’ve ever seen before! It’s so peaceful, you’ll be sure to get a great night’s sleep.
You’ll really feel at one with nature here. Everything around you boasts an eco friendly touch, from the natural building materials to the fact that El Encanto runs on solar power alone. It’s a true off the grid experience with all the comfort and convenience of modern amenities, including WiFi and a coffee maker.
