Four pools, two swim-up bars, a private beach and a spa – the Riu Palace Baja California has a lot to shout about since its unveiling in December 2018. You can also expect restaurants serving up everything from American breakfasts to Indian and Japanese cuisine. Plus, there are things like scuba diving lessons and access to the waterpark next door to look forward to.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
A couple of floodlit tennis courts* and scuba diving lessons* in the pool offer up something a little more active than sun worshipping. There’s a golf course* a 10-minutue drive away, too.
