In most cases, tranquility is found in off-the-beaten destinations. And it doesn’t get better than the Rancho San Lucas. About fifty years ago, a restaurateur, hotelier and founder of the Solmar Group envisioned a gorgeous all-inclusive estate on the Pacific side of the lower peninsula. He soon purchased the land, and the rest is history. The 834-acre resort, located south of the Baja California cape, has become the perfect escape for romantics and solo travelers looking to ditch the routine metropolitan distress.
With sweeping vistas of the Pacific Ocean and wild desert landscape, the Rancho San Lucas slowly claws its way up the list of the world’s most picturesque destinations. The resort offers visitors 1.2 miles of pristine beachfront on the Pacific and a luxurious golf course to perfect your birdie skills on a sunny morning.

The all-inclusive ranch has become synonymous with avid golfers looking to take full advantage of the 18 holes. Golf legend Greg Norman designed the golf course. The resort also offers visitors varied shopping stops and family-themed entertainment.
