Luxury travel: Spa-tacular

The unknown outcome of the pandemic has left many of us tense and worried. So it’s not a surprise that an escape to a spa would be a desired destination. And when it is combined with adventure and physical activity, it becomes an enviable possibility.

Take, for example, a week’s stay at an adult camp in Baja. Camp Verano is a luxury summer camp for adults located at the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos at Costa Palmas. The resort offers six-day stays filled with the kind of programming and fun associated with traditional summer camps.

That includes Luna de Agave, a restorative treatment that uses indigenous blue agave leaf extract oil to soothe and repair the nervous system, improve circulation, reduce swelling and sharpen clarity.
