Solaz Los Cabos

During my recent travels in Los Cabo, I was afforded an opportunity to do a site visit to a new resort under construction – Solaz Los Cabo.   While many luxury vacation resorts often offer many onsite amenities to lure clientele (which you will certainly find here too), the nature environment of Solaz is the key here.

Beyond the Comfort Zone

  I remember sitting outside on the hot concrete patio floor of my best friend’s apartment. It was a hot summer day, the sun was beaming down on me, sweat was beading up on my forehead, and bees were buzzing around my head, but I didn’t care. There I sat with my knees bent tightly to my chest as my arms hugged them, as tears continued to stream down my face. My visit with my friend would be over in a…
