NYLON Guide To Los Cabos, Mexico


Where to stay, what to do, where to eat

There were several things that I heard about Mexico's Los Cabos prior to going there last month: It has the most perfect weather (tropical with no humidity), it has the most beautiful sunsets (which look different every day), and you can see a lot of whales (like a lot). “You haven’t been there yet?!” one of my co-workers asked me when I shared this insight with her prior to her going there a month before me. "And here I thought I was the last person to go!"

It’s true, Cabo is a popular destination for snowbirds, spring breakers, and anyone looking for a quality beach getaway. But, as popular as Los Cabos may be, it remains a gem even for those in the know. Earlier this year, the New York Times ranked it the 11th must-visit city of 2018.

Located on the tip of the Baja California Sur peninsula, Los Cabos is divided primarily into two parts, Cabo San Lucas (the party side where many flock for the beachside resorts and rowdy bar scene) and San Jose del Cabo (the historic side with an up-and-coming art scene). Flanked by mountains and two azure bodies of water (the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez), Los Cabos is truly one of the most picturesque cities you'll visit.

Ahead, the best places to stay, drink, eat, and shop, as well as activities in which to partake, that prove that Los Cabos is worthy of its must-visit standing. Even if you're the last person you know to go there.

Where to stay
As with any heavily populated resort town, there are plenty of options of where to stay in Cabo, but, important to note, not every hotel will have a swimmable beach, even if they're located on the water (strong currents, waves, and deep floor drops are to blame).

Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort: This stunning property does offer a swimmable beach. In addition to prime access to the Sea of Cortez, the hotel houses two pools (see the infinity one above), a spa with native Mexican rituals, and a fitness studio with beachside yoga and zumba classes. Helmed by the visionary chef Mauricio Lopez, the onsite restaurants offer some of the best and most innovative food you'll have on your trip. Spring for La Vista Club club rooms, accommodations located on the top floors of the hotel, boasting giant marble bathrooms stocked with Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries, aromatherapy turndown service, terraces that offer breathtaking ocean and sunrise views, and access to a private pool area equipped with a butler. Come here between late July and November and you can also participate in the hotel's turtle protection program, that works to protect the hatching Olive Ridley sea turtles and safely release them into the water.

Tree houses at Acre Baja: This is not a long-term stay option, but if you’re looking to do something different, stay at one of the tree houses in a canopy of palms, equipped with a king-size bed and outdoor shower, at Acre, a restaurant-turned-event space-turned resort (more on that later).

Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos: Set to open in June, this beachfront property is anticipated both for its sleek design (that nods to the area's traditional architecture) and commitment to immersive experiences for the guests. Paying tribute to the history of the Baja Peninsula, the 128-room resort will double as a museum with original works of art displayed throughout the property. The seven onsite restaurants will further the mission of immersing the guests by introducing them to Baja's culinary traditions.

Premiering today via NYLON

Small Talks, aka Cayley Spivey, has come a long way since starting a band, then becoming the entire band herself and forging her own fan base from the ground up. On her recent album A Conversation Between Us, she began to unpack any lingering baggage with one particular song: "Teeth." Today, she premieres the accompanying music video exclusively via NYLON.

"'Teeth' is about my personal battle with letting go of the past," Spivey tells NYLON, admitting that it's easily her favorite song off of A Conversation Between Us.

Watch the video for "Teeth" below.

Must have been pretty awkward

Taylor Swift and Sophie Turner were guests on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show together, which must have been awkward for Turner's husband, Joe Jonas, seeing as he also happens to be Swift's ex. I wonder if his name came up?

The interview doesn't come out until Friday night, but promotional photos show the two sharing a couch. Swift is making an appearance to perform her new single, "ME!" while Turner is promoting her new film, X- Men: Dark Phoenix. But it seems necessary for the two to be asked about Jonas.

Swift was just on the Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month, where she brought up the fact that she felt bad for putting Jonas "on blast" on DeGeneres' show back in 2008 by telling the audience that he broke up with her in a record-setting short phone call. But, according to Swift, she and Jonas are chill now, since it happened pretty long ago, which means she's probably already hung out with Turner and maybe even gossiped about him with her.

We can only hope that they get the chance to spill some tea on television.

"That's! His! Auntie!"

Leslie Jones has rewatched the Game of Thrones finale with a beer in hand, Seth Meyers at her side, and a full camera crew ready to take in all her glorious reactions. Spoilers ahead, but, if you haven't watched last week's episode already, that's kind of on you at this point.

When Jon Snow started to make out with Daenerys, also known as his aunt, only to stab her through the chest moments later, it was emotional whiplash for everyone watching. And, Jones' reactions—both from her first and second viewing—sum it all perfectly.

"That's! His! Auntie! [gagging noises]," Jones says before making an aside about calling the police if her uncle ever tried to do the same. But then the knife goes in, and Jones screams. "Did you see that?!" Jones asks, "Yeah bitch, that's a knife in you." Meyers points out the funniest part of all: "Why are you so upset about someone kissing their aunt but totally fine with someone killing their aunt?" Jones replies, "Because that bitch needed to go," and, well, same.

Other highlights from the comedians' rewatch include comparing Dany's victory speech to a bad improv gig, predicting that their dogs would have less of a reaction to their deaths than Drogon did to his mother's, and more.

Watch all of Jones' reactions from this Late Night clip below.

These lyrics are a lot

Robbie Tripp, aka Curvy Wife Guy, is back with a music video, titled "Chubby Sexy," starring his wife and a trio of models. In it, Tripp raps about his bold choice to find women with an average body size attractive.

The video begins with a series of statements laid over some pool water: "Curves are the new high fashion," "Chubby is the new sexy," "We Out Here." Tripp posits that these queens deserve an anthem, which they do. What they do not deserve is this Cursed Song. As he lists all the names he knows to call them by (thick, thicc, and BBW), one model (who I really, really hope was paid well) squirts some lotion down her cleavage, and Tripp begins dancing.

"My girl chubby sexy/ Call her bonita gordita," Tripp states in his chorus, before going on to compare "big booty meat" to the peach emoji. Another thing he mentions is that his wife can't find a belt that fits her waist, and that's why he calls her James and the Giant Peach. He then tries to dab. Here are some of the other Cursed highlights from his, uh, verses:

Got those Khaleesi curves/ Knows how to dragon slay
She like a dude that's woke/ We like a girl that's weighty
Some say a chubby girl that's risky/ But they ain't met a curvy girl that's frisky
Imma dunk that donk like I'm Andrew Wiggins.
Thick like an Amazon/ Built like Big Ben.

Tripp says one thing in the video that I couldn't agree more with: "She don't need a man." No, she does not. Please run. If you must, watch the entire video, below. Or send it to your nemesis!

See the promo here

It was bound to happen. The Kadashians and Jenners have committed themselves to letting the cameras roll on their lives, for better or for worse. So if you thought that the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal was off limits, you thought wrong. The trailer for Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was just released, and it involves the famous family working through the fallout of what happened when Woods went to a party at Thompson's house.

The teaser includes the infamous clip of Khloé Kardashian screaming "LIAAAARRRRRR." It's still not explicitly clear who prompted that strong response. She could be responding to Thompson, who clearly isn't always honest. Or she could be reacting to Woods account of the events on Red Table Talk. But the most revealing moment comes when we see Kylie Jenner—who was Woods' best friend before all of this happened—react for the first time.

In a heart-to-heart conversation, momager Kris Jenner says, "For you and Jordyn, it's like a divorce." Kylie only offers this in response: "She fucked up." Based on Woods' version of events—which I'm inclined to believeThompson is the one who fucked up. Still, I'm hoping for some kind of reconciliation between the two longtime friends. Perhaps we'll have to wait until next season for that.

Check out the promo video below.
