Introducing Sharecare VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide

The prospect of traveling in this new world can feel overwhelming at times. How can we be sure the hotels we're staying in are safe? What kind of health and cleaning standards have been implemented? How do we know which hotels we can trust? While most of us are eager for a chance to unwind, it can be hard to believe travel will ever be relaxing again.

We hear you, which is why we've partnered with Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide to drive the adoption of a revolutionary new platform that's shaping the future of safe travel.

Through a rigorous and expert-validated system, the comprehensive Sharecare health security VERIFIED(TM) program with Forbes Travel Guide allows hotels to earn the VERIFIED(TM) badge - an easily identifiable "seal of approval" - by implementing expert-validated protocols and standards across their properties; these include health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures and measures to support proper ventilation, physical distancing and health safety communication. And for you? The Sharecare VERIFIED(TM) program helps you rest assured that your health and safety will remain top-of-mind throughout your stay, and you can get back to dedicating your pre-travel energy to other important matters, like choosing what books to read on the beach.

But that's not all - in addition to hotels earning the badge, your entire destination just may be Sharecare VERIFIED(TM)! In March 2021, Los Cabos became the first Sharecare VERIFIED(TM) destination thanks to an effort led by Visit Lost Cabos with Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide. As a VERIFIED(TM) destination, the Los Cabos Tourism Board committed to the adoption of the healthy security verification as a universal standard across the hotels and resorts within its coverage area. So, here's where to stay and how to live it up in this chic Mexican paradise.

Resting on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, Los Cabos is known for its luxurious resorts, sparkling nightlife and the luminous Sea of Cortez. It's in this magical place that Nobu opened its first Mexican location, with 200 guest rooms and suites built in the brand's stunning modernist architectural style. Of course, having been co-founded by culinary genius Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, the hotel has also invested heavily in ensuring its dining experiences are nothing short of extraordinary. Their signature restaurant sits right on the beach, with its Japanese-fusion dishes served in the salty Pacific air. Other onsite choices include the organic and sustainably-sourced Malibu Farm, Mexican a-la-carte at Pacific Restaurant or the refined Ardea Steakhouse.

During the day, Los Cabos is an adventurer's playground, and Nobu can set you up for everything. Spend time on a private catamaran or luxury yacht, jumping off to snorkel throughout the day; rip through the desert on a Polaris UTV; experience the once-in-a-lifetime journey to see migrating humpbacks off the coast; or visit the startling diverse Espiritu Island.

Another legendary Los Cabos hideaway is One&Only Palmilla. Nestled into the rocks of the Baja's dramatic coast, this boutique hotel features designer rooms, casita suites and luxury villas, including the exclusive Villa One perched at the resort's highest point. Not only are the views iconic, but One&Only's property also allows access to one of the region's best beaches for swimming.

To satisfy your appetite for fine food, the hotel's culinary collection includes Seared by One&Only(TM) steakhouse; an open-air brasserie with live music daily called Breeze; and Suviche by internationally renowned chef Jean-Georges.
