Villa Del Palmar Overview: A Trip To The Islands of Loreto Changed My Entire Perception of Mexico
Mexico has never been a top pick travel destination for me, but all that changed after a trip to Villa Del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto on the country's Baja Peninsula, off the Sea of Cortez. During a three-night wellness-focused vacation, I saw a side of Mexico I didn't know existed. I had experienced all-inclusive resorts before, not the modern kind with multiple restaurants and celebrity chefs, but the variety from a few decades ago that involved three buffet meals a day, constant cocktails, and a rowdy party vibe. Not really my kind of travel as I prefer to stay active, feel healthy, and partake in fun excursions during the day. So when Villa Del Palmar delivered this, as well as a striking landscape of mountains, sea, and islands, I was pleasantly surprised. This video will show you why this is a top pick for a wellness-focused vacation. We head out on hiking trails, enjoy healthy food, test our balance during stand-up paddleboard yoga and enjoy every second at the Sabila Spa.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
