Where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

When vacationing in Cabo, the family have often stayed at the stunning Cabo Platinum, Villa La Datcha. At $35,000 a night, you’d expect nothing less than ultimate luxury and the luxury villa offers 10 beds, 12 baths, an infinity pool, a fire pit, 3 chefs, 6 butlers, a masseuse at the ready, private security guards and a PT.
