I woke up with the sun on my first morning at Villa del Palmar and still thought I was dreaming. The only thing missing was my husband who I will definitely bring next time! I felt well rested and refreshed, ready for a fun day filled with adventures!
The morning began with this decadent breakfast spread!
After breakfast we took a tour of the property. This is the Danzante Bungalow. It is at Danzante Bay on the outer edge of the resorts property and is an 800 square foot yurt! It is totally private with its own jacuzzi on the deck right on the sand! How romantic! I would love to stay there and sip champagne in the jacuzzi under the stars!
This was an interesting and important part of the tour because it is part of the desalinization system which is the process of removing dissolved salts from water, thus producing fresh water from seawater. A big concern when traveling to Mexico is always the water. At Villa del Palmar all the water is drinkable because of this system! It was impressive. They really care about the environment and do a lot to give back to their local community.
I loved spending time at the Sabila Spa. It was absolutely gorgeous and soooo relaxing. I had a wonderful mini massage and then spent time hopping around from the jacuzzi to sauna to steam to cold water plunge. They also offer yoga, meditation, juice therapy and have a new wellness program.
The afternoon was spent taking a scenic 50 min. shuttle ride along the coast into the quaint little downtown area of Loreto. There is shopping in Handcraft Alley, great food/drinks and historic buildings like the church and Mission. Carlos from Villa del Palmar was our guide and really gave us a lot of historical information about the town as well as the best spot for chocolate clams and jalapeño margaritas!
When we returned from town we had a magical meal at Danzante, the fine dining restaurant at Villa del Palmar. My photos don’t do it justice because of the soft, dim lighting but trust me, it was delicious!
More adventures from this trip coming soon!
