When I was in college, I met a friend in San Diego and we roadtripped down to Baja to go surfing in this tiny surfing village called Erindira. It was blissful and to this day, was one of the best (and cheapest) trips that I've ever taken. On our way to Erindira, we stopped in Ensenada and, while it wasn't my favorite spot, it was still pretty cool. Well, they just upped the ante in 'ol Mexico.
Hotel Endemico is a new collection of well-appointed cube dwellings built into the mountains of Mexico's vineyards in Valle de Guadalupe. If you are in need of just getting away and falling off the grid/wagon, this is one hell of an option. The Endemico Resguardo Silvestre Hotel opened about a month ago and is part of the funky Mexican hotel group, Habita. This eco-friendly hotel features a set of twenty independent rooms - eco-lofts - with a minimal steel structure elevating it to avoid contact with the soil and a wall of glass overlooking the sprawling vineyards below.
If you want my opinion (and you do), I say book this vacation asap. I say that you plan on rolling out of bed in the early afternoon with your late-summer fling (this is definitely too cool to do alone) and toast your surroundings in your private sundeck. Did I remember to tell you that they give you complimentary sombreros at check-in? Yeah...that wouldn't leave my head the entire trip. Between wine glasses and day trips, you should definitely make time to just lounge in the Hollywood Hills-esque infinity pool that spills over the cliff's edge and just drink delicious wine until you feel recharged enough for re-entry into the real world.
