What is glamping and why is it so popular?

Glamping is a form of camping that combines the comfort of being in a hotel with the experience of being in the middle of nature, making the most out of both worlds. The word “glamping” is a concept that derives from the words “glamour” and “camping”. 

Instead of camping in a tent or recreational vehicle, glampers (the name for those who go glamping) enjoy more luxurious, sophisticated accommodation options, such as yurts, safari tents, chalets, or domes. These structures are usually more comfortable than a simple cabin and have nice furniture, electricity, and private bathrooms.

What are the benefits and advantages of going glamping?

Glamping is the ideal activity for those who want to go camping without having to forgo the comfort or privacy that a hotel offers. 

With this solution, which is increasingly common among travelers, you can get up close to nature and away from the noise of the cities and enjoy a setting brimming with peace and serenity. What’s more, glamping options are usually found in incredible natural settings such as forests, mountains, or beaches, which makes them an excellent opportunity for hiking, cycling, or even water activities, such as kayaking.

Another advantage of glamping is the unique experience it offers. There are many kinds of accommodation options and each one offers a different experience, from the decor to the panoramic views and the location they are found in.

Glamping in Ensenada, Mexico

One of the most common areas for glamping is Ensenada, a coastal city found in Baja California, Mexico. This region offers unique glamping options for nature lovers.

In this area, it is the Bubble hotels that particularly stand out. This type of accommodation is a fabulous solution for camping out and being able to enjoy the starry sky all through the night. As their name suggests, these hotels have a bubble structure and the walls and ceiling are transparent, enabling you to admire the beauty of the sky throughout the day and night, without needing to worry about light pollution.

And it’s not just that because Ensenada is also the ideal place for sightseeing. Among the most highly recommended activities in the area is the wine route, where you can sample wines from the region and enjoy their intoxicating flavor. You will also be able to go to the beautiful beaches that surround the area, and even see La Bufadora, considered the second largest marine geyser in the world, reaching 30 meters high. 

What other activities are available with glamping?

Glamping offers exciting outdoor activities such as hiking, star gazing, and outdoor culinary experiences. You can also enjoy water activities in rivers, lakes, or nearby coasts for your favorite outdoor sport. You can do yoga and relax in the middle of nature, giving you the chance to fully disconnect from your daily routine. These activities will enable you to make the most of your glamping experience, combining the comfort of the accommodation with the connection with nature. 

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the landscape, sample delicious outdoor meals, and find tranquility in practices such as yoga. Glamping is the perfect way to enjoy adventures and relaxation in a natural setting.

Advice for going glamping

At Del Mar Boutique, we want to give you some tips for when you come to enjoy a glamping vacation and give you an unforgettable experience.

Pack appropriately

Remember that you’re going to be up close with nature, so taking comfortable clothing and footwear that is suitable for the climate and the natural setting is essential. Don’t forget to take essential items such as sunscreen and insect repellent. Even though many establishments provide it, bringing cooking utensils for grilling or cooking outdoors is always a good idea.

Study the area in depth

Most glamping accommodation options provide guides and routes of what there is to do in the area. However, there’s never any harm in having a quick look at the activities in the area to plan your vacation, book tickets in advance, and therefore be able to enjoy your experience to the full.

Connect with nature and respect the environment

As we mentioned before, glamping establishments are in natural areas. It is the ideal setting to disconnect from the stress of our daily life and get away from our routine. However, we must note that we are in the middle of nature and we need to respect the environment. It is very important to take care to collect our waste, avoid causing any damage to the setting, and try to leave the natural environment as we found it.
