Celebrity Travel: Go away with Sebastian Zurita

By Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

Actor Sebastian Zurita views his hometown of Mexico City as another character on his Amazon Prime Spanish-language scripted series, “How to Survive Being Single” (“Como Sobrevivir Soltero”). Splitting his time between Mexico and the United States, Zurita, 33, traveled frequently prior to the coronavirus pandemic and said the destination was less important than his traveling companions. “I truly believe a dream trip comes from the people you are with and the type of trip you are making,” Zurita said. “Anything with friends without having to rush. I hate rushing.” The actor is active on Instagram (@szuritaoficial) and Facebook (@szuritab).

Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?

A. I have this secluded little place that I go to at least once a year called La Ventana in Baja California Sur. It’s a kite surfer’s paradise, where the desert mountains meet the Sea of Cortez. It’s amazing! It’s a small town where there is almost no cell service. The food is amazing, the people are warm, and you get to kite all day. It’s my little retreat from the world.

Q. To someone who was going there for the first time, what would you recommend that they do during their visit?

A. Get into one of those little hotels by the beach. Kurt N’ Marina is one of them. After you settle, find out where they are having the nightly event, go meet some new people and find someone to teach you how to kite surf. Eat somewhere new every day, too.

Q. What untapped destination should people know about?


A. I feel like people should take a bit of a road trip through Ensenada to get to Cabo Pulmo to scuba dive and then finish at Valle de Guadalupe for some amazing wine. I’m sure you will thank me for that.

Q. What was the first trip you took as a child?

A. We have a family tradition where every winter we travel to different parts of the world. We have gone to Australia, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Russia, Italy, Paris, Brazil, Argentina. You name it. But some of my first trips definitely were to Acapulco in the 1980s. We used to spend most of our summers there and we loved it.

Q. What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?
