The Caliente Charms of La Casa del Zorro

Break away for a Borrego Springs idyll while the deals are hot (and so is the weather).

AUGUST IS HOT, as a predictable rule, around the glorious California deserts, and there isn't really any deep discussion to be had on the matter (unless you want to break down the science of it, which can get quite deep and fascinating). But when it is especially sun-intense out in our state's more arid expanses, there is something rather wonderful that happens: stay-over specials. As in, those delightful deals that hotels offer to people who don't mind a little triple-digit afternoon hot-a-tude. If this is you, and you love a pretty Olympic-sized pool in that mix, and a resort that includes a top-notch spa, and roomy casitas, then gaze upon...

BEAUTIFUL BORREGO SPRINGS, and La Casa del Zorro, which currently has a few tempting promotions going, all to treat those adventurers who prefer their getaways on the toastier side. There's the 3 Night Summer Casita Special, which includes a 2-room, 2-bath casita plus your very own pool or hot tub. For sure, you can still take a dip in that Olympic-sized pool, but you may just want to hang out in your tucked-away space, splashing with your sweetheart or bestie. The price? That starts at $699. There's a 6-Night deal, too, for a beginning price of $99, if you want to make a near-week of it. And an especially quirky promo from the property? Nab a pool-close room and pay whatever the daytime high is in Borrego Springs. One quick glance at the weather page will tell you it will be a bit north of 100 dollars, er, degrees, at least as August melts into September 2019.

THE 42-ACRE PROPERTY... includes several picturesque nooks, walking paths, and cactus-y details, giving it extra desert cred. Are you feeling like you want to make the end of your summer extra summer-licious? Here's where you start, and you can start by saving money, too. And one wonderful extra for those who love stars? Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is an International Dark Sky Community, so keep your eyes up, after sundown, should you want to spy heavenly bodies, nearby planets, and the shimmery spray of the Milky Way.
