San Miguel at Night (photos)

A Night View of San Miguel de Allende 12 Days and 11 Nights in San Miguel After spending 12 days of exploring San Miguel de Allende in the center of Mexico, I never grew tired of this fantastic city’s character and vibe. I was happy to explore and meander the stone streets and have a giant liquado verde, a fresh squeezed and blended drink of orange, cactus, greens and ginger. I would sit in the park and watch the people moving about their lives. San Miguel de Allende After Dark However, after dark, families came out along with teams of...

Wedding Weekend in Los Cabos

Sure, I could spend the entire wedding weekend at the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar — what with the five pools, four fabulous restaurants, five equally great bars, the Cactus Spa, pristine beach… why not? But, there is a bit more to explore in Los Cabos. For future Cabo travelers, I’ve laid out a nice itinerary that includes dramatic sunsets, bucolic farms, and yes, all those pools. And, depending on the time of year – maybe even a whale or two. Rehearsal Dinner at Sunset da Mona Lisa There’s a reason that ‘sunset’ is in the name. I got the...

ITKT deals at Villa del Palmar

Getting Married at Villa del Palmar in Loreto We were the first couple who got married on Villa del Palmar’s golf course, which will be in full swing, pardon the pun, later this fall. The evening of our wedding was idyllic. They had set up a gorgeous canopy and we faced the ocean. The wedding itself was about fifteen minutes of flowery, sincere words. Our guests enjoyed a four-course dinner and we laughed as the sun slowly dipped into the Gulf of California. Later that night, we sat by the fire and chatted to the sound of lapping waves...

La Paz, Mexico, and the Sea Lions

La Paz, Mexico, Perfect for Snorkeling Snorkeling in La Paz The water surrounding La Paz, Mexico, was not as cold as I expected as I climbed off the boat, but I was still nervous. The sea lions were everywhere, and as far as I could tell there were no fences between me and them. I bobbed up and down with the surf because the wet suit I was wearing made me like a cork. I am terrible in the water, almost as bad as I am on a boat. However, these were sea lions. Lots of them. They lounged only feet from where I was splashing around. They...

There were other options of course – Sayulita’s main beach is riddled with offers of surfing lessons by everyone from attractive twenty-year-old professionals to local beach bums working out of scruffy shacks – but something made me stroll right by all the others and straight to Pepe’s haphazard thatched stand. Pepe le Pew is a native to these parts, with long black hair and dark skin that had long ago been...
