In a Nutshell
- Most memorable travel experience: Convincing myself to zipline over the rainforest in Maui after being deathly afraid of heights and learning to surf for the first time at age 47!
- My top 3 favourite resort destinations: Riviera Maya, Jamaica, Los Cabos.
- My favourite resort: El Dorado Casitas Royale, Riviera Maya.
- Why is it my favourite: The service and food are impeccable and the luxurious design of the round casitas that comes with a romantic Aguas del Amor (private outdoor shower) are so unique. The resort is so well laid out with each casita section having its own pool/pool butler/swim up bar. The view of the ocean isn't too shabby either! It's a perfect place to unwind for a week.
- Travel Advice I can give to anyone: If you are flying with smaller children and want to be sure to sit together, pay the extra money and prebook your seats when you book your trip. Don't assume the airline will automatically seat you all together if you wait until airport check in.
- Where I have recently been: Europe - AmaWaterways Europe River Cruise.
- Where I'm planning to go next: Palm Springs.
