For couples hoping to conceive, our couples’ Damiana Amoroso treatment includes one of Baja’s indigenous plants, Damiana, which is known for being an aphrodisiac. The tribes of the region would make a ritualistic tea out of the Damiana leaves in order to help with fertility, to which they have created a delicious Damiana liqueur from this implant, which is served to couples at the end of their treatment. For those looking to immerse themselves in the culture, take a farm-to-table cooking class among the gardens or learn to create a cocktail at a Mezcalita mixology lesson. At Rancho Pescadero, wellness is culminated through barefoot luxury and Mexican soul, and whether it be exploring the 30-acre property’s nine interconnected gardens designing a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers or its 25,000-square-foot wellbeing pavilion, we have no doubt you will find moments of bliss and solitude with the one you love.
