Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort Is a Dream Escape

Easily accessible from Westchester, this resort tempts golf lovers with its signature Quivira Golf Club, which features a Jack Nicklaus design.

Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort is the perfect spot to get away from the bustle of New York. The lodgings and dining are superb, the spa is world class, and the golf is nothing short of exhilarating. Oh, and don’t forget three miles of private Pacific Ocean beach. There are direct flights from New York to Los Cabos International, making it as accessible as any West Coast destination.

Quivira Golf Club is the signature amenity of the resort. It’s an epic Jack Nicklaus design marked by huge dunes, sheer cliffs, and rolling desert landscape. While there are many other good golf courses nearby, Quivira has more oceanfront exposure than any of them.

The course also features not one, but two golf holes that will literally make you dizzy. They are reached by a nearly mile-long cart ride up a mountain-hugging path with incredibly dramatic views of the Pacific bevlow. The two holes hang on a cliff over the ocean and dare you to be aggressive off the tee. The 6th is a 310-yard par 4 that begs you to try to reach in one but brutally punishes a miss. The 7th hole, a par 3, challenges you with a 180-yard shot to a sliver of green.

From exemplary spa services to organic gardens, art galleries to world-class restaurants — not to mention uncountable ways to relax and enjoy the water — Pacifica provides a plethora of ways to pass the time. It’s worth noting, too, that the resort is adults only, so peace prevails. If you want to bring the kids, they’re welcome at one of the other three nearby Pueblo Bonito resorts in Cabo — Sunset Beach, Rosé, or Los Cabos. Guests, at these resorts, have golf privileges at Quivira, too. Speaking of golf, the staff at Pacifica will happily make tee times for you at over three dozen other courses nearby.

Dining at Pacifica spans every taste. Choose from the Quivira Steakhouse and 19th hole bar located in the thatched-roof clubhouse at the golf course; Península, featuring recipes hand-selected from regional kitchens; Siempre, offering international cuisine infused with Mexican flavors; or Pescados, with casually elegant ambience and a delicious sushi menu.

While Pacifica is blissfully isolated from bustling Cabo San Lucas, there are a multitude of reasons to visit the city. A terrific day begins with a late breakfast at Las Palomas at the Los Cabos Beach Resort. Then, no visit to Cabo is complete without a tour to Land’s End in a glass-bottom boat with Bonita Tours. Finally, the perfect end to that day is a fine dinner at LaFrida Restaurant in Pueblo Bonito’s Rosé, honored by a AAA Four Diamond Award.
