Your California Bucket List: A collection of new adventures and experiences in the Golden State for every day of 2017

Las Ventanas al Paraíso, Baja California, Mexico

The scene: Massive rooms (the smallest is 960 square feet), sleek pools, spa, luxe desert details, painstaking service, all near the water's edge in San José del Cabo. Spa, sushi bar. Managed by the luxury specialists Rosewood. My visit: 1998, shortly after the resort opened.
