Los Cabos, Mexico (March 27, 2019) –Forget chocolate squares and warm chocolate chip cookies, the latest luxury turndown is a DIY nightcap. Guests at Los Cabos’ newest boutique hotel, Mar del Cabo, can request a Rum Flip, Hot Chai Tea Toddy or Whiskey Skin as part of its new Nightcap Turndown offering. All the ingredients, necessary equipment and a recipe card with the instructions to make one’s own will be delivered on request. Whether getting over Jet Lag or being in a new place, a soothing nightcap calms nerves and relaxes the body for a full night’s sleep. If you can’t make it to Mexico this year to try out the creative turndown, Mar del Cabo shares its recipe for a Rum Flip.

Mar del Cabo is a stylish adaptation of the classic boutique hotel, designed to captivate and comfort with its space of unassuming and pleasing minimalism.
