no. 1 los cabos isn’t just for spring breakers anymore.

AT A GLANCE, you might have thought I was on a post-finals bender. Twelve empty shot glasses and picked-over bowls of chapulines sat strewn before me on the bar. But this wasn’t some Cuervo-soaked bacchanalia—it was the Agave Experience at Montage Los Cabos (montagehotels.com; doubles from $975), a tasting more akin to a Bordeaux cellar visit than an MTV special. I am no spring breaker, and this is not the old Cabo. Los Cabos—a catchall name for the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo—has a reputation as a place full of wealthy Angelenos and college kids, less a Mexican destination than an Americanized resort getaway. And that’s true, to an extent. You can speak English, pay cabbies in dollars, and even make a Costco run. In parts…

these are the new must-visit cultural destinations.

NO. 2 MATERA, ITALY Set on the instep of Italy’s boot, Matera is best known for the white Sassi structures carved into its limestone hills, which earned the town a UNESCO designation. The announcement four years ago that Matera would be a 2019 European Capital of Culture signaled a new era, spurring hotel and restaurant openings and culminating in this year’s festivities. Don’t miss the museum Casa Noha (fondoambiente.it/casa-noha-eng), where a multimedia exhibit gives a glimpse of the city’s past. The tour operator Divertimento Group (divertimentogroup.com) can arrange an experience in Murgia National Park, where you’ll go on a foraging trek with a local farmer, then share a gourmet meal in a cave next to an ancient rupestrian (i.e., made out of rock) church. Bed down at the Aquatio Cave Luxury…
