In our search for more unique sustainable destinations in the world we came across villa del Faro in Mexico. This boutique hotel holds a breathtaking position perched high on a hill overlooking the gorgeous East Cape coastline. Imagine being in the middle of nowhere, with spectacular sunrises and only the sounds of birds, palms, and rolling surf. If you are looking for rest and you prefer a sustainable environment, than this is the place.

Villa del Faro is an absolutely magical place. You can walk for miles on an empty beach where the only footprints could be your own. Nature is still untouched and you can even rent the beach hut on the beach and live the life of Robinson Crusoe if so desired.

Each accommodation is a separate, comfortable, private house – a casita – with individual patios, views of the gardens, fountains and ocean. In the right season you will have a big change seeing humpback whales & blue whales on a daily basis. The gorgeous architecture, with no detail left out, offers multiple spaces to enjoy the beautifully furnished lodging. Each one is unique, full of handcrafted Mexican art. This property has 8 casitas where the maximum number of guests on the property is about 20.

This resort gets an amazing rating on TripAdvisor and an average rating of 9.2 on booking.com.

How to get there

Villa del Faro is an hour from the Los Cabos airport, but is a world away in seclusion and serenity. Although not an easy drive to get there, it is without a doubt worth every single bump on the long dirt road when you get there.
