A Day at Flora Farms

Since we decided to extend our Cabo trip by 4 days while we were there, we started looking for a few activities to do!  Almost every single person we talked to (friends, two different concierge at two different hotels, taxi drivers and even my trusty Oh So Glam readers) recommended taking a day and heading over to Flora Farms.  The first part of the week flew by and we moved up from The Cape Hotel in San Jose over to Secrets in Los Cabos, about 30-40 minutes up the coast.  I’m so glad we ended up waiting until the last part of our trip to venture over to Flora Farms, because our hotel in Los Cabos ended up being only 10 minutes away… it couldn’t have worked out better for us!

Flora Farms is a beautiful family farm at the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains in Los Cabos, Mexico.  The property has an organic farm and grocery store, a farm-to-table kitchen restaurant and bar which we dined at for lunch below, weekly cooking and floral arranging classes, a few boutique concept stores (including James Perse, a favorite of mine), and beautiful cottages available for purchase on 10-acres of land.  It’s seriously one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever been to — and yes, they do weddings and events!  Can I maybe get a re-do?!


















We took a taxi over from Secrets Los Cabos (about $25 if I remember correctly) and got to Flora Farms around 11AM.  We wanted to go an hour early before our lunch reservation to explore the property and ended up asking the hostess if we could push back our lunch because there was just so much to see!  I will start off by saying that you NEED to make a reservation (something that Mr. Oh So Glam isn’t always fond of), but it’s insanely popular for good reason and books up fast.  Lunch is actually a little less busy due to the heat during the day because since you’re off the coast, there’s less of a breeze.  As soon as we walked in, we realized how magical this place would be at night for dinner (hello, TWINKLE LIGHTS!!!) and seriously debated going back later on that weekend — but every single reservation was gone.  Even the late ones.  Lesson learned.  It’s on our list to return for dinner the next time we visit Cabo!

Their menus change frequently since it’s a farm-to-table concept and they cook with whatever is in season.  We ordered a winter root and kale salad and the burrata to split, and were kicking ourselves for not showing up absolutely starving after eating breakfast at our resort.  I ordered a glass of Sauv Blanc (basic) and then my husband sees this tall glass of Bloody Mary artwork walking by us on a tray and says, “I’ll have whatever that is.” THAT was one of the most insane Bloody Mary’s I’ve ever seen in my life with basically every single ingredient on the farm — kale, celery, green beans, cilantro, a little puffed ricecake, radishes, peppers, tomatoes.  It was a MEAL.

We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around exploring the gardens, checking out the gorgeous cottages (“couldn’t you see us living here?!?”), meeting a few of the family farm dogs (this one loved me), and popping in and out of the cute little shops.

I packed the BEST I ever have this trip (even Raja said it) and ended up rewearing a ton of my dresses that I brought for dinners during the day and as beach coverups.  This one dress was a favorite — it was so lightweight (perfect for the Mexico heat), and looked good with a pair of heeled sandals and slides.  For this day trip, I paired it with my favorite mesh sneakers and my oversized boater hat.  I adore these sneakers I got last summer — I love that they are less sporty looking than a lot of sneakers right now, and they basically go with anything.  I wore them while traveling to and from Cabo and ended up wearing them a bunch of times throughout the week as well!  I also always bring some sort of wide brim hat with me on every vacation and I end up wearing it more off the beach than on — it keeps the sun off my shoulders and chest when we’re walking around exploring.

I have a few more posts from Cabo to share this week — stay tuned!

    […] It’s always so funny to go back to somewhere you’ve been before.  Since our last stay at Secrets in 2014, we’ve done a ton more traveling and we were wondering if our stay this time around would live up to what we remembered.  Secrets in an all-inclusive resort, and after a week going the non all-inclusive option, it was a nice change not worrying about taking out our wallets.  The staff is so friendly, the service is great, and the food and drinks are very good in my opinion (especially for an all-inclusive resort).  The property here is also stunning and HUGE, so even though they were at 85% occupancy, we weren’t at all cramped.  We upgraded to the Preferred Club option once again this time, which gives you a better room (usually with a view), and access to a special concierge and lounge.  I recommend taking advantage of the spa at Secrets — we try to get a message when we’re on vacation and both agree it’s one of the best spas we’ve been to!  Secrets is a little bit farther from downtown Cabo San Lucas (about 40 minutes), so it’s a lot quieter of a property and definitely not as lively as where we came from.  We were also a lot closer to Flora Farms (where we took a day trip) — make sure to check out my full recap HERE!
