How do you know things are getting serious in Los Cabos? A tequila sommelier shows up. From November 2-6 at the One&Only Palmilla, shot-master Manuel Arteaga will host evening tastings—and that's just the beginning of the resort's five-day Mexican Culinary Festival. The first annual event will feature a new star chef from a hot Mexican restaurant each evening: Pujol's Enrique Olvera, Paxia's Daniel Ovadia and Sud777's niño prodigo Edgar Nunez will host cooking demonstrations and prepare special menus. Meanwhile, Guadalupe Valley vineyards Roganto, Vinisterra and Singergi VT will provide wine pairings. The festival is all the more delicious due to the One&Only's special weekend package, which offers 30 percent off luxury accommodations and two $50 spa gift certificates. Tastings and suppers are included, por supuesto. From $590 per room; palmilla.oneandonlyresorts.com.
