Escape where the sun always shines!

August 21, 2018

Three getaways that will heat up your weekend…

Summer doesn’t have to end! Get away from the cold and relax at the most paradisiac spots in Mexico.

Los Cabos

From its breathtaking waters to its magical desert landscapes, the diversity of Los Cabos lies not only in its ecosystem but also in its amazing attractions. Whether you are traveling in couples or with a large group of friends, Los Cabos has something special waiting for you.

World Citizen Tips

Los Cabos has dominated the golf scene in Latin America, so, if you are a golf enthusiast; don’t forget to visit at least one of its beautiful 15 golf courses open for play (few of them award-winning).

If relaxing at the seaside is what you’re looking for, The lover’s Beach is a must-go for you. Its huge rocks and famous Arch surround the crystal blue dream waters of this renowned beach.

Tulum

Definitely one of the hippest beaches in Latin America. Besides its turquoise waters and crystalline sand, Tulum’s vibrant cultural scene makes it one the most magnetic places of all the Caribbean.

World Citizen Tip

If you are a night lover you can’t miss Gitano, one of the coolest bars in Tulum, a place to dance with the best lounge music and enjoy a delicious cocktail.

Bacalar

Also called The Lake of Seven Colors, is the second largest natural body of fresh water in Mexico and our favorite spot to relax and fall in love. This freshwater lake is fed by a set of beautiful underground cenotes. Its white sea sand and huge length (55km) give a special sense of being at the ocean.

World Citizen Tip

If you’re looking to have a romantic getaway, Bacalar’s quiet scene and spectacular landscapes are perfect for a couple’s celebration or a special proposal.

The Way of St. James

August 20, 2018

For more than 2000 years (since the pre-Christian era) “El Camino de Santiago” has been the most emblematic pilgrimage and travel experience in Europe. This amazing route is a journey of enlightenment, self- knowledge, and self-discovery.

El Camino de Santiago crosses different parts of the ancient world, along the way there are a set of lodges specially constructed for the attendance of pilgrims. These set of inns carry on an incomparable mystic vibe that goes beyond its physic amenities and gives an exceptional sense of warmth.

Pied à Terre as part of its Brand design adopted the famous pilgrim’s shell; the shell carried for centuries by ancient travelers who followed the Milky Way up to the end of the world in Finisterre. This shell appears on our logo as a way to express the special philosophy that inspires our company.

With this philosophy in mind, we’ve selected El Camino de Santiago as Pied à Terre ’s signature route. To book or get more information about El Camino de Santiago, visit our Routes section.
