Disclosure: Thank you to Villa del Palmar at The Islands of Loreto for sponsoring this trip and post. All opinions are 100% my own.
Where do I begin? I attempted to summarize four fun-filled days and three nights about my trip to Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto in one blog post. It didn’t quite work out. So I ended up writing several including 1) our boat tour, 2) diving for clams, 3) our morning hike, 4) my tips for paddle boarding, and even 5) how I learned how to make a beautiful sun-shaped garnish on the beach while sipping on some fresh cucumber lime margaritas. Oh! I even shared 6) How I wrapped my souvenirs in toilet paper rolls!
There is still so much more to share, so I summed it up as best as I could in a three minute video. In it, you will see photos of our entire trip including my gorgeous suite, all the adventures I mentioned above, and all the gourmet food we ate.
