Loreto, Mazatlán, Sin., Mexico
A Trip to the Islands of Loreto Changed My Entire Perception of MexicoMexico 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 in beautiful environs (inside and out), I saw a side of Mexico I didn't know existed. What I had experienced in the past was an all-inclusive resort, and 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. And from the moment I checked in, I felt a sense of calm. In this video, we 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.
