Selfless work, dedication and passion are three key factors present in the inspiring work of those striving to create a better world. Just in Los Cabos there are many people, associations and foundations making titanic efforts to help the communities in vulnerable conditions, and to provide empowering tools to build better futures for themselves.
The best way to explore a culture is, perhaps, through its gastronomy; enjoying dishes infused with history and flavors that evoke Mexican traditions in every bite.
This is the premise behind the culinary tour visitors and locals alike can experience in Anica, the signature restaurant at Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas.
With the same passion an artist creates a masterpiece, Chef Alberto Collarte from Grand Solmar Land’s End orchestrates a symphony of sensory experiences in every themed night that takes part of this resort’s collection. The latest addition, the much anticipated themed soirée, Grill Night at Don Luis Restaurant, is the anteroom of an evening embracing most of what made Los Cabos one of the finest dining places in Mexico.
