PUNTA MITA | ST. REGIS PUNTA MITA

I had the opportunity to join the VII Punta Mita Gourmet & Golf Classic last month through the St Regis Punta Mita, in the Pacific coast of Mexico. I have a soft spot for Mexico, specifically their cuisine, which is possibly my favorite. So when I received the invitation to this event I wanted to cry of happiness. This year I have been channeling my inner Arnold Palmer, by golfing not once, not twice, but three times this year. Also in attendance Lorena Ochoa, a top-ranked female golfer in the world, who I had the privilege to meet during my trip! Punta Mita is an ultra-luxurious resort and residential area located on a private peninsula 45 min far from Puerto Vallarta, surrounded by white sand beaches of the Pacific Ocean. Punta Mita is a golfer’s paradise, you can enjoy of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses and several beach clubs and the gorgeous St. Regis Resort Punta Mita. This place has become Mexico’s most coveted hideaway. I was treated regally since day one with the best food from chefs around …

The Ritz-Carlton Cancun

Cancun is definitely a place to love. I recently got back from a four-day escapade with The Ritz-Carlton Cancun. The city is way bigger than I imagined and has a whole lot to offer besides from the beautiful turquoise waters and the friendly and polite people of the city. This isn’t my first time to Mexico, however, it is my first time visiting la Riviera Maya, and it was the perfect way to top off the summer season. Every experience that The Ritz-Carlton offers is always the best of the best: From the food and location to the staff and entertainment. On my first night at the hotel, I had the chance to experience the Chef’s Table with Chef Mara Barba, which I highly recommend if you want an intimate dining experience. The menu for the night was Mexican cuisine with a local twist. We were treated to a 6-course meal, which was prepared inches away from us, and in between bites we sipped on local Mexican wines. As she cooks she explains the story …

VIILA HORIZON CURAÇAO: LUXURY CAN BE AFFORDABLE

Curaçao, the big sister of Aruba and Bonaire, is an hidden gem in front of the coast of Venzuela. As part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands, Curaçao has a lot to offer. Small beautiful beaches in secluded bays, a buzzing nightlife, historical colonial architecture, watersports… a perfect island to spend your vacation. But where to stay? In one of the many hotels or resorts? No, let me tell you a secret. Why not renting a vacation home…like Villa Horizon Curaçao. This one-of-a-kind vacation villa is exclusively designed by the famous Dutch designer Des Bouvrie. The white (bring your Ray ban with you!) design villa with its sleek lines and great views has 4 bedrooms with your own bathroom and AC.
