We are pleased to introduce David Luna as our first-ever Rosewood PlaceMaker. We invite you on a journey deep into the local culture of Mexico, through authentic compelling stories that beckon you through the lens of a native. Our purpose is to encourage exploration and discovery while celebrating the culture of Mexico.
Born in a small town in Jalisco, Mexico, Luna moved to Guadalajara as a young man, remaining there ever since – save for a stint in Paris where he studied design. The home and workshop he has made for himself there is the stuff of legend, filled with exquisite furniture, found natural objects – his favorite medium – dried gourds, raw wood, and baskets of every size.
At 67, the artist says he has more energy than ever. Here, Luna talks to Rosewood about celebrating Mexican culture and the secret to his fountain of youth – the power of community.
Explore Los Cabos’ crystalline blue waters by luxury yacht, snorkelling or sailing day cruise. Tours visit the signature landmark of Los Cabos, El Arco de Cabo San Lucas - known locally as El Arco, meaning ‘the Arch’ - a limestone arch on the southern tip of the southern end of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula carved by tide, wind and time.
Held every Thursday during the high season (from November to June), the Art Walk sees the Gallery District in San Jose del Cabo come alive, featuring artists from all over Mexico in mediums including paintings, sculptures to photography and handmade Chiapas textiles. It’s an ideal way to sip wine, sample free tapas from wandering restaurateurs and meet artists in galleries as you wind down from another day in San Jose del Cabo.
Be transported to the land of Tequila to watch the agave fields unfold, savor an authentic Tequila tasting at one of Cuervos’ premier tasting rooms and interact with the maestros tequileros during a Distillery Tour. Discover their day-to-day life and ways of creating this magical liquor and end your journey with lunch at La Antigua Casona.
A company with more than 25 years of experience in the manufacturing of hand-blown glass, The Glass Factory was originally founded to meet the demands of local hotels and restaurants. It now employs over 30 local artisans who produce close to 500 one-of-a-kind pieces per day using recycled, lead-free glass.
