Touring the Best Luxury Resorts in Cabo

Here at Luxury Latin America, we've been covering the best of the best hotels and resorts in Cabo since our inception in 2007. Back when we started it wasn't hard to keep track of the top Los Cabos luxury hotels because there weren't all that many of them. The Los Cabos Tourism Board, until very recently, made their luxury advertising decisions based on how the general managers at just four resorts decided how to distribute funds. Cabo is a different place now, and it's going to continue evolv...

A Second Le Blanc Luxury All-inclusive, Los Cabos in Baja

Luxury resorts are sprouting up like desert mushrooms along the Los Cabos tourist corridor between the two cities. Many are offshoots of U.S. or Spanish chains, but there are plenty of Mexican ones in the mix as well, including a Le Blanc Spa Resort. Joining the Le Blanc Cancun one we've been covering since our launch, this adults-only all-inclusive resort follows the same playbook of indulgence and stylish spaces with a great pool complex by the beach. The pool complex is a real gem here, wit...

An Original Luxury All-Inclusive Turns 20: Royal Hideaway Playacar

I remember the first time I read an article about a "luxury all-inclusive" resort. It was long before we launched Luxury Latin America, back when most travel information came from vessels holding ink on glossy paper that were mailed to your house. The writer was talking about a new resort near Playa del Carmen in Mexico. She was skeptical about the whole concept, someone who had shunned all-inclusive resorts her whole life, but was forced to spend time at this one because her editor sent her t...

Vast Ice Age cave system discovered underneath Montreal

Walking the streets of Montreal, Canada, you’d probably never guess a cave system lurked 10 meters below. But that’s exactly what two speleologists, or cave experts, recently discovered. Daniel Caron and Luc Le Blanc found a 15,000-year-old network of caverns that might have formed as glaciers receded during Earth’s last Ice Age. They think it’s possible that no person had ever set foot inside these caves until now. Back in 1812, the Saint Léonard cave beneath Pie-XII Park was discovered. But ...

Draft Review: Coyotes Stress Economics, Player Development

If the Arizona Coyotes hired John Chayka for his penchant to dissolve numbers into results, the organization may be getting its first real benefit. In a move to take an amount off the Coyotes’ salary cap and gain a player whom they sought, Chayka made a deal with the Detroit Red Wings on draft night to accomplish both objectives. After selecting diminutive center Clayton Keller at number seven overall, a player whose scoring touch and creative acumen is compared with the Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane...

Coyotes Need to Resolve Several Off-Season Issues

  For a team which has not qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs in the past four years, there appears little sense of urgency to address the maladies of the Arizona Coyotes. Other than parting ways with general manager Don Maloney last month, things have been relatively quiet. Then again, we’re only a month into the post-season, and teams, out of the playoffs, do not start seriously start to plan ahead until after the Cup is awarded. Currently, there are three basic issues on the Coyotes’ fron...

Lululemon Now Wants To Dress You For Work, Not Just Workouts

Photo: Courtesy of Lululemon. If you haven't ventured to Vancouver, Canada in the past few years, you've probably never heard of Lululemon's high-end, beyond-the-gym Lab offshoot. The Lab's first (and only other current) outpost is in the northwestern Canadian city, which originated in 2009. This week, the company opened its second Lab location (and its first in the U.S.) in New York City's Noho neighborhood. Each Lab's selection caters to the store's location — the Vancouver outpost stocks m...

They’re 17, 20 and 22-years old and with respect to more seasoned players like Colm Campbell, Des Morgan or Dan Holland or newcomers to top level such as Jonathan Yates, Caolan Rafferty or Cathal Butler, they will be worth watching at Rosses Point on Monday.Kevin Le Blanc, the former Junior Open champion from The Island, is gunning to become the youngest West of Ireland champion since Rory McIlroy won aged 16 a decade ago.The rangy 17-year old has been more concerned with ...

Our Revamped Review and Video Tour of Le Blanc Cancun

Le Blanc Spa Resort is not typical Cancun and it's not typical all-inclusive, so check this one out with an open mind. Among many luxury travelers who can afford the best of the best every time, the phrase "all-inclusive" is spoken with a wrinkling of the nose or a looking down of that nose. The whole idea, in their mind, is associated with mass-market vacationers stuffing their face and falling down drunk, whooping like a loud American watching a football game. There are plenty of places li...
