Just a couple hours south of the border in Valle De Guadalupe you will find Encuentro Guadalupe, the eco chic anti resort with 20 pods scattered throughout the valley over looking the best views of Guadalupe Valley.
After many visits down to this very special place, I had simply fallen in love. Being a lover of the valley, the food, the wine, the local beers, and of course Encuentro Guadalupe, I was beyond thrilled for the grand opening of their newest addition, Convivia by Flor Franco.
The valley is filled with amazing restaurants and culinary masterminds but until now there had been no cool local hot spot to enjoy craft cocktails, local craft beer, and typical cantina tapas.
A menu consists of an array of ceviches, tostadas, and flatbreads with all ingredients sourced locally and produce from the properties garden. My favorite, the Pulpo Ceviche!
AND lets not forget the delicious assortment of craft cocktails designed especially for Convivia by San Diego based Snake Oil Cocktail Company. My fave, the ¿Qué Hay De Nuevo, Viejo? : Jaral De Berrio Mescal, carrot, grapefruit & lime, chile morita, cumin, honey, fried pork belly, YUM!!
For all you beer lovers out there, lets not forget the wide selection of local craft beer. San Diegans are not the only ones brewing delicious craft specialties. A must try, the Aguamala IPA.
With the open indoor bar, expansive patios overlooking the valley, Convivia offers another amazing option to host events, private parties, and celebrations. Or simply come for a cocktail and appetizers and relax.
