John learns the art of pairing authentic Mexican food and wine at Secrets The Vine Cancun

We at Secrets The Vine thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce him to the exciting world of authentic Mexican food and wine, so we decided to show him some recipes!

Beginning the sopes at Secrets The Vine Cancun

We worked with John to create some traditional Mexican sopes and mole. John even tried making his own sope. The food was paired with Espacio en Blanco, a fine Chardonnary from Hacienda La Lomita.

Secrets The Vine Cancun

The secret to great traditional Mexican cooking is always starting with fresh ingredients at Secrets The Vine Cancun!

As the delicious  scent of fresh prepared mole filled the kitchen, Secrets The Vine chefs completed the final steps and it was ready for enchiladas, which were paired with Mogor Badan, a great Cabernet–Merlot wine from Valle de Guadalupe.

Celebrate Mexican Independence Day

In the early morning of September 16th 1810 a church bell in Dolores, Guanajuato rang out, gathering all the towns’ people. A priest named Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla wanted to gather the people of Mexico to rise against the Spanish crown. It took another 11 years for Mexico to gain independence but this event, known as the Grito de Dolores, was the spark that began it all.

Today the biggest celebration happens in Mexico City where at 11 p.m. on the night of the 15th the President steps out on to the balcony of the National Palace overlooking a massive crowd in the decorated courtyard. There he rings a similar bell to the one once used by Hidalgo and comments on the historical Heroes of Mexico ending with an enthusiastic “Viva Mexico!”

Spotlight on Eco-friendly Practices at Secrets Marquis

At Secrets Marquis Los Cabos, we are committed to a variety of environmentally-friendly practices to support and promote sustainable tourism efforts and social responsibility. We are lucky to be located in a place of incredible natural beauty and are proud to do our part to preserve both the land and sea environments around us for future generations and the creatures that call Los Cabos home. Below are some of the ways we work to promote sustainable practices at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos.

Natural beauty abound at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos, and we think that's something well worth protecting!

  • Rainforest Alliance Verified™
    Secrets Marquis Los Cabos earned this designation for its commitment to reducing its environmental impact within the resort and the surrounding community. This mark is awarded to tourism businesses that adopt best management practices and meet specific criteria developed and/or endorsed by the Rainforest Alliance.
  • Water Desalting Plant
    The Water Desalting Plant at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos is a vital initiative at the resort. This plant pumps in ocean water and sends it through a process to remove the salt from the water. Upon completion of this process, the clean, filtered water is used as the main water supply for the resort. In turn, Secrets Marquis is able to refrain from using the local water supply and preserve water.
  • Ecological Soap
    This environmentally friendly practice allows the resort to reduce its use of chemicals by providing guests with all-natural soap, made from cactus, right in the resort’s laundry room.
  • Composting
    Compost is made on site from the uneaten and unused vegetables and organic matter that is left over from the kitchen. The compost is then used as fertilizer in the resort’s gardens. The use of compost removes chemical fertilizers from the resort, providing the vegetation with all natural fertilizers.
  • Turtle Protection and Release Program
    Each year between the months of May and August, Secrets Marquis Los Cabos is dedicated to protecting the turtles that nest their eggs on the resort’s beachfront. Once the turtles hatch, resort guests are invited to participate in the turtle release. At this time, staff and guests protect and guide the newly-hatched turtles back to their natural ocean habitat.
