Villa del Palmar At The Islands Of Loreto; The Perfect Family Getaway
Finding an affordable trip that doesn’t take too long to get to and or break the bank is like searching for a needle in a haystack! I was recently invited ( hosted) to the incredible, luxurious Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto for an amazing four-day tour of the Mexico hotel and its beautiful surroundings, a United Nations Heritage Site .
What I loved most is that it is a two-hour flight south of Los Angeles. The town is also the site of Misión de Nuestra Señora de Loreto Conchó, one of the earliest successful Spanish missions.
Behind The Scenes of Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto
Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, which opened about three years ago, is nestled within the Danzante Bay of the Sea of Cortés. It overlooks the sparkling sapphire of a wonder that legendary marine explorer Jacques Cousteau once christened the “Aquarium of the World.” Let me tell you they are not joking! I have never seen so many amazing Dolphins and Sea Creatures!
The resort is on an approximately 4,500-acre plot of protected land, which will soon include an 18-hole golf course ( they hope by November 2014). It is eco-friendly and the resort also houses their own seawater purification system, converts their beautiful sunny days into energy via rooftop solar panels, and implements a grey water recycling program.
