Staying at the El Cosmico is a magical experience. It is like summer camp for adults. You can stay in a teepee, safari tent, refurbished vintage trailer, yurt, pitch your own and sleep under the stars or in the Brite Building. I had read about the property for years but never made it out. Fantasizing about a place is often a recipe for a let down but the El Cosmico exceeded my expectations. There's just something in the air... I felt particularly fortunate to have the opportunity to style a photo shoot around there and capture the wild, free, nostalgic energy with the help of traveling companions Rambo and Dillon.
