Beyond Orange County
We’re heading to Loreto, Mexico!
I grew up in California with my extended family living no closer than a 16 hour drive. Having a lot of family in Mexico meant that I visited my parent’s home country at least twice a year. Once married, the hubster and I took a few cruises to the Mexican Riviera to discover some new spots, and my love for Mexico deepened. Next week, I’ll have the opportunity to visit a new spot in Mexico, Loreto (located in Baja California) and I cannot wait to enjoy it.
Where I’m staying
Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto
This gorgeous beach resort and spa will host a group of bloggers next week. Starting with a welcoming reception, followed by dinner at Danzante Restaurant and ending with a Make-a-Wish Foundation Sky Lantern release, the Villa del Palmar will make our first night unforgettable.
I can’t wait to explore the property. The resort features 4,447 acres of unspoiled beauty! It has both a stunning ocean AND mountain views, three outstanding restaurants, five swimming pools, a 39,000-square-foot luxury spa, beautiful beaches, tennis courts, miles of hiking trails, glass-bottomed kayaks, sport fishing, and a soon-to-open Rees Jones-designed golf course. It’s also only a 2 hour flight away from Los Angeles, making this paradise accessible.

Have you been to Villa del Palmar or Loreto, Mexico? I would love to hear any tips you have for me.
p.s. I’ll be packing all of my clothes for this trip in one carry-on bag. If I can do it for Jamaica, I can do it for Mexico.
I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to update next week, but keep an eye out for bloggers using the hashtag #VDPLFAM and #VillaDelPalmarL, it’s the one we’ll be using during this trip. ¡Adios!
