The best time to take a vacation is during the colder months of the year. Escape the frigid temperatures and get a little Mexican flavour by heading to the One & Only Palmilla resort.
Flight expense from Canada to the resort is worth it for the experience at this one of a kind vacation getaway. Located at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, the resort was originally built in 1956 as a 15-room luxury hideaway for Don Abelardo Rodriguez, the son of the President of Mexico. Earlier guests intrigued by the privacy of the resort included famous Hollywood celebrities John Wayne, Bing Crosby, Lucille Ball as well as others.
Part of the One & Only resort experience is its multitude of activities for an exciting and unique stay. Activities located at the resort are tennis and golf that you can access at your leisure. The resort also provides opportunities to take excursions off the property to adventures beyond. Some unique One & Only excursions are chauffeured Hummer H2 mountain explorations and tours of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez on a 43-foot Azimut yacht. Additionally, horseback riding, picnics, mountain ranch cooking lessons and aerial coastline tours are easily arranged by the One & Only Concierge.
For a unique marine life experience, the One &Only Palmilla resort’s Sea of Cortez location allows guests to get up close and personal with 50-ton gray whales. The resort offers whale watching excursions from December to March.
