The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Discover Stunning Wine Country in the Guadalupe Valley

More than a decade into its winemaking revival, the Napa of Mexico now lives up to its nickname with top-tier hotels and dining.


1. Where to Stay

The view from one of the private cabins at Endémico.  

Enjoy a wine country retreat on a budget at Hotel Meson del Vino (from $50), whose fourteen rooms are clean and simply decorated. Amenities like a pool, ATVs for rent, a wine-tasting room, and restaurant serving wood-fired pizzas round out the mix.

Get your design fix at Endémico (from $205), an architecturally stunning, twenty-cabin property that opened on a 40-acre winery late last year. Cars are left at the entry, but chauffered golf carts will shuttle you from your podlike, glass-and-steel cabin on the boulder-strewn hillside to the expansive tasting room and adjacent pool.

Play bocce ball in a private vineyard at La Villa del Valle (from $225), a hilltop organic farm and hacienda that offers six well-appointed rooms overlooking the valley’s olive groves and lavender fields (“El Valle de Guadalupe” in Spanish). Owned by a Hollywood executive and her husband, the property is also home to renowned restaurant Corazón de Tierra, where you can see the staff plucking ingredients from the garden for your meal.
