In our current global predicament, it may be difficult for some to commit to a trip on the other side of the world during these uncertain times. Although travel is ramping up and we’re optimistic for what the future holds, we understand the hesitancy, but also believe getting away–whether across an ocean or a few hour drive–is a necessity. The last couple years taught us that we don’t need to travel far distances to get a taste of something new or have an experience that fills us up.
So, we’re looking a little closer to home this time: North American adventures for every type of traveler.
Las Ventanas Al Paraiso
Located at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort, combines a striking desert landscape with rich Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez. A sanctuary for revitalization and romance, the 84 suite and villa resort between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas sets the standard for luxury hospitality with an unparalleled level of service and amenities. With Mexican artwork and hand-carved furniture, the bright colors and overall aesthetic reflect the vibrant culture and the surrounding seascape. The hotel also has a private residence, The Ty Warner Mansion, that is 28,000-square-feet and directly on the water. There are three restaurants on the premises that take inspiration from the sea, India and the East, and the Mexican state of Oaxaca, and there’s a Prohibition-era speakeasy bar as well as an outdoor ceviche and tequila bar. Enjoy the surf, lounge on private cabanas, or escape for a desert excursion.
Tribù preferred hotel amenities include: room upgrade upon availability, early check-in/late check-out, daily breakfast, $100 resort credit, and mini tequila blanco tasting experience for reservations 5+ nights.
Auberge Chileno Bay
Auberge Chileno Bay is a sophisticated contemporary escape also in Los Cabos. Its overall openness blurs the line between outdoor and indoor spaces with an abundance of terraces and large sea-faced views. Don’t let the chill and effortless style fool you, your stay can be as mellow or as action-packed as you like. The resort is not short of adventure: located on a protected cove on one of Cabo’s only swimmable beaches, one can snorkel, paddle board, and kayak on the tranquil Chileno Bay. Dive in to see tropical fish, sea turtles, and coral reefs! Other sea activities include deep sea fishing, sailing the Sea of Cortez, and whale-watching safaris. Baja California is a world of contrasts: stay on land for exploration of the historic town of San José del Cabo or take a Mexican cuisine workshop.
Chileno Bay has guest rooms, villas with a full kitchen and pool/jacuzzi, suites, and sky villas with unobstructed views of sunrise and sunset. Designed for families and friends traveling together, the ample communal spaces allow for guests to convene. A free-spirited, cool Cabo stay, choose your own adventure at Auberge Chileno Bay.
Around Baja California Sur:
Explore beyond your resort and head north to the sleepy fishing village that's also a thriving art community, Todos Santos. A desert oasis of palm trees, Saguaro cacti, and white sand beaches, Todos Santos is quaint, charming, and away from the crowds. Eat at Los Adobes, Hierbabuena, or one of the town's oldest restaurants serving up authentic Italian food, Café Santa Fe. Near Todos Santos is the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve that covers 28,000 acres of diverse plant and wildlife. Hike for the day or spend multiple days hiking to encounter waterfalls and experience the majestic "island in the sky".
Beyond Todos Santos is La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur, where you'll find ultimate outdoor adventures like sand boarding the El Mogote dunes, and even swim with sea lions and sea turtles at Espiritu Santo Island, and seasonally, whale sharks between the months of October to May.
Designed with sustainability in mind, Chablé Yucatán brings harmony between modern spaces and nature. Located in Chocholá, 26 kilometers from Merida in Yucatán, the casitas and villas are surrounded by jungle vegetation and made of rich stone and wood. Become immersed in Mayan culture and history through art, gastronomy, and storytelling, and partake in ancestral healing, purification, and energy balancing ceremonies such as Temazcal. Food is an essential part of the stay at Chablé with culinary offerings created by acclaimed Mexico City chef Jorge Vallejo.
Tribù preferred amenities include: free wi-fi, early check-in/late check-out upon availability, complimentary breakfast, and $100 hotel credit.
We're sure you heard of Cancún, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, so let's explore further into the Yucatán. Archeological sites of the Mayan civilization are scattered all over Mexico with a major concentration in this state. Most famously, one can visit Chichen Itzá main pyramid El Castillo or take the Puuc Route: a collection of five ancient sites. Escape south nearing the Belize border to Laguna Bacalar or the 'Lagoon of Seven Colors' that's been said to be the Maldives of Mexico. Head to the opposite site of the peninsula to Isla Holbox or as far as Mérida and stop at Las Coloradas, a tiny fishing village with bright pink lakes on the way.
Montage Palmetto Bluff
Cobblestone roads, moss-draped live oaks, and wrap-around porches: a classic Southern escape. On South Carolina’s coast between Hilton Head Island and Savannah, Montage Palmetto Bluff is along the May River in Lowcountry spreading 20,000 acres. It is located on an extensive nature preserve with access to a riverfront marina, a golf course, and countless shops and dining experiences. The accommodations–from spacious cottages, suites, and village homes–nod at the region’s rich heritage. We’re particularly fond of the one bedroom cottages equipped with a gas fireplace, wood floors, and high ceilings, and the large two to five bedroom village homes for groups and families with exquisite Southern charm and privacy. Bicycles and golf carts are provided for use to get around the property.
Palmetto Bluff is unique in geography and history, making it a haven of inspiration for landscape painters like Ray Ellis and West Fraser. The natural lighting and beauty has been compared to that of Provence, France: Its marshes, forests, and rivers are a spectacle to artists, visitors, and locals alike. Embrace an environment with a mix of cultures and histories, as well, from viewing historical Native American artifacts dating back to 10,000 B.C., learning about the antebellum era, the Civil War, and the preservation of Gullah culture.
San Ysidro Ranch
San Ysidro Ranch, a Ty Warner Property, is a legendary hideaway in the foothills of Santa Barbara, California, and has been a destination for peace and tranquility since 1893. The ranch has a lengthy historical guest list: John and Jackie Kennedy honeymooned here, John Huston finished writing the screenplay for The African Queen while in residence, and the list goes on and on.
Stay among abloom gardens, lily ponds, large sycamore and oak trees, and fragrant magnolias and jasmine overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. The ranch has thirty-eight vine-covered cottages with stone fireplaces, patios, and outdoor rain showers. These romantic bungalows have private parking and are decorated in global antiques and original artwork. Included in your stay is nightly live music, complimentary dining, and access to 17 miles of hiking trails, a heated pool, and signature salon and spa. San Ysidro Ranch is home to multiple award-winning restaurants and a world-renowned wine cellar with 12,000 bottles of varietals. The dining experiences are from an ocean view terrace, outside the stars and twinkle lights, and more intimately indoors within stain-glass windows and rustic decor.
The Resort at Paws Up
It’s difficult to find a location in the United States that’s as secluded yet rich in unspoiled wilderness as Montana. With lakes, rivers, mountains, and forests, it is truly an American treasure and is impossible to ignore its vast beauty. Located in Western Montana, 35 miles northeast of Missoula, The Resort at Paws Up is a 37,000 acre authentic working cattle ranch with luxurious accommodations and five-star amenities. The expansive property is home to more than 300 elk and a couple hundred Black Angus cows roaming the pastures, over 100 miles of trails, and 10 miles of the Blackfoot River, originally named Cokalahishkit by Native Americans meaning “the river of the road to the buffalo.”
Paws Up is private and yours to explore. A playground for both adults and kids, there are countless activities to take part in like fly-fishing, horseback riding, white-water rafting, and ATV tours. With safari-style tents, secluded tree houses, and multi-bedroom timber homes, Paws Up accommodates couples, families, and groups and doesn’t shy away from incomparable quality and comfort.
A sanctuary among the trees, The Green O is a Tribù preferred hotel partner. This new exclusive retreat is on the Paws Up property and fully exclusive in the forest. Staying at The Green O tree houses include $300 credit towards wilderness adventures, early check-in/late check-out, and a local traditional gift.
The Lodge at Blue Sky
35 miles from the Salt Lake City airport, The Lodge at Blue Sky is a private retreat in the Wasatch Mountains. Powerfully reconnect with nature and engage in experiences that will transform you. With outdoor yoga, guided meditation, sound healing, sage ceremonies, and even an opportunity to deeply connect to horses through breath work and exercises with these majestic and sacred animals, this 3,500 acre property certainly heals. Visit Gracie’s Farm, the on-site sustainable farm, to pick vegetables or go on a high-alpine helicopter adventure (skiing, hiking, fishing, or mountain biking) to Utah’s most remote and off-the-beaten-path locations. The suites and houses available are natural extensions of the land: the materials have been locally sourced with limestone and grass roofs, and the color scheme blends in with the peaceful surroundings.
Tribù preferred hotel amenities include: upgrade upon availability, free wi-fi, early check-in/late check-out, breakfast credit for 2, and $100 resort credit.
Opening seasonally on May 1st through mid-October, Sonora Resort is located in the Discovery Islands archipelago off the coast of British Columbia and is only accessible by boat or air. What began as a rustic fishing lodge in 1979, the resort transformed over the 40 years as a luxury wilderness destination. The finest of the Pacific Northwest, watch grizzly bears, hike through rainforests, ocean kayak, and fish for salmon.
In partnership with First Nations communities, Sonora Lodge aims to honor, protect, and educate about the natural and cultural heritage of the land.

The lodge's dining reflects British Columbia's multi-cultural community and thriving PNW culinary scene with local ingredients and sustainably sourced produce.
