These hotels throughout Mexico let you get away from it all without sacrificing the planet—or your high standards.

Verana in Yelapa, Jalisco

1 of 12

Tucked up in the hills overlooking the Bay of Banderas, Verana is a five-acre boutique hotel that could double as a Hollywood backdrop, which makes sense as the husband-wife owners are a former movie set builder and set decorator. Beyond the aesthetics—the nine rooms, a newly remodeled restaurant and spa, and a springwater pool best enjoyed with a spicy margarita or aged rum mojito in hand—there is cochinita pibil, slow-cooked in an underground pit Yucatán style, freshly caught octopus and lobster (opt for the meal plan; $95 for three daily feasts cooked by Yelapan chef Fabian), yoga classes, ocean kayaking off Verana’s private pier, whale-watching, and waterfall hikes in the jungle. Rooms from $250.
