Ocean View Dining at Vespera Resort


Pequín peppers are small, vibrant peppers known for their versatility and ability to transform a dish — thus inspiring our name. With locally-sourced ingredients and flavourful twists, our menu has captured the same essence of the Pequín pepper highlighted in our Baja Coastal selections. Our oceanfront views and live music on the weekends add to the spice of the Pequín Coastal Cocina experience.
