Villa Del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto: Why It Should Be On Your Travel List
It was just a few hours into my trip at Villa Del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto in Mexico, and I knew it was already a place I was dying to come back to. In this video, we explore why resort life here is incredible. On a boat tour to see nearby islands, we see many birds of the Baja, including blue-footed boobies and frigates. And even a pod of bottlenosed dolphins who didn’t shy away from us as our panga boat approached to get a closer look. The resort also offers traditional experiences like Mexican Fiestas, where dancers on stage entertained us during a traditional Mexican dinner, and Beach Parties with a series of games and even a Conga Line.
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.
Puerto Vallarta Excursion: Hidden Beaches, Horseback Riding, Waterfalls, and More!
This was probably my FAVORITE Carnival Excursion we did! If you are thinking about booking the Sea Safari excursion while in Puerto Vallarta, I highly recommend it, but don't take my word for it, check out this video and see how fun it is for yourself! The Sea Safari was an amazing way to see parts of Puerto Vallarta you couldn't possibly see on your own, such as the secluded town of Quixtmo, a hidden waterfall, and a secluded beach that will take your breath away. This Sea Safari Carnival excursion costs $119 per adult, and $99 per child (under 12 years old). I wouldn't recommend this excursion if you have young children or if you have physical limitations as it can be physically demanding at times, such as the horseback riding bit and also the getting on and off of boats in the water and also in the surf as these stops don't have docks for the speedboat to dock in.
