6. Esperanza, Auberge Resorts Collection

Esperanza, Auberge Resorts Collection, Los Cabos’ reopened its award-winning spa as a new holistic and cultural wellness experience with transformative treatments, a refreshed look and feel by TLEE Spas + Wellness, and immersive well-being journeys. Drawing inspiration from the philosophy and practice of the medicine wheel and indigenous Mexican healing traditions, the spa experience debuts spiritually guided spa offerings to promote holistic restoration in a newly elevated environment.

The treatment menu at the Spa at Esperanza is inspired by the ancient Mexica (Aztec) medicine wheel, a framework used by numerous indigenous peoples of the Americas for many centuries. The four quadrants of the medicine wheel each focus on different natural elements - earth, water, fire and air - and are accompanied by unique treatment experiences pertaining to the four core areas of well-being - physical, mental, spiritual or emotional. Curated by lead therapist Connie Ruiz, one of Los Cabos’ top practitioners and an integral part of the spa reboot, the new therapies embrace the wheel as a sacred symbol of hope that represents all knowledge of the Universe, inspiring movement toward healing for those who seek it.
