Mexico is much more than just tequila and mezcal. Well-heeled travelers know that Mexico even has its own wine region, known as Valle de Guadalupe and within day trip distance from San Diego. Explore this increasingly popular area south of the border with a stay at MIRA Earth Studios. Opened just over a year ago, these hillside suites feature dramatic views and luxe amenities that make for a one-of-a-kind stay in one of Mexico’s new popular destinations.

“The studios are integrated into the natural environment, providing an intimate connection to the earth,” said Nick Kendall, co-founder of MIRA Earth Studios. The sleek studios sit along a craggy ridge overlooking the valley, using natural materials to blend into the landscape while the modern design provides bold contrast.

Many southern California residents will know Valle de Guadalupe as Mexico’s answer to Napa Valley, though this increasingly buzzy area is starting to gain much-deserved wider acclaim. Situated 1.5 hours to 2 hours south of San Diego in the northern part of the Baja Peninsula, it has become a popular destination for a weekend trip and is developing an increasingly impressive array of places to stay as a result.

Studios are much more than just their views. In addition to luxe room features like private terraces with firepits and jacuzzis, each studio offers a projector for movie nights, and a well-stocked mini-bar with snacks, pre-bottled cocktails, and local wines. The property incorporates thoughtful touches throughout a stay, like breakfast baskets, locally inspired pizzas, a pour-over coffee and tea ceremony, and more.

Studios are also profoundly eco-friendly to preserve the natural beauty and rich ecosystem of the Valle de Guadalupe. “The rammed walls and indigenous plant green roof honor the land by conserving all available natural resources,” says Juniette Bermudez, Co-Founder and Principal Architect and Designer of MIRA Earth Studios.
