When you think of sleeping in a tent, does the image look anything like that scene above from Cuatro Cuatros in the wine country of Mexico?
The word “luxury” is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you picture sleeping in a tent, but this tented camp is more Africa than Alaska. Larger than a standard hotel room, the units are made from canvas over a steel frame that’s mounted on top a smooth hardwood platform.
They are outfitted with sturdy, comfortable furniture: embroidered armchairs, and various small tables and dressers. They also have mini fridges, ready with cold beer, water, and white wine and sodas. Lockboxes join small AC units for the summer, space heaters and a wood-burning stove for winter. Each tent has free Wi-Fi.
You won’t be roughing it in the bathroom either. It contains “an overabundance of towels, quality bath products, and a rainforest shower with a glass door that opens up to a tiny enclosed porch, creating an intimate outdoor shower area.”
Besides all that, there’s a veranda for sipping the wine you purchased that day and gazing at the view by day, the stars by night. Cuatro Cuatros is close enough to Ensenada for shopping and restaurants, but is a short hop from Baja beaches around the Salsipuedes Bay on the Pacific Ocean. The location and sleeping style here make you feel up close to the natural landscape of Baja Norte though in a way that’s not possible in an enclosed hotel.
No worries of course if you didn’t bring your own wine. This property is part of a vineyard and they make their own red blend and savignon blanc. You can explore the property on bikes they provide or hit the hiking trails.
At night lighted paths lead to a tented restaurant serving BajaMed style food that’s a mix of Mexican and Mediterranean, with an emphasis on the abundant seafood and produce sourced locally from this sunny region.
While some may be scared off by the idea of not having solid walls around them at night, this luxury camp offers more privacy than a typical hotel and a unique experience in Mexican wine country.
