If you are looking for a little extra TLC, a wellness retreat is a great choice for a vacation. Read more about wellness vacations and my trip to Mexico in this newsletter.

"We had a great time in Grenada at Sandals Resort! It was a wonderful choice for us. The food was excellent and the property did not seem to be overly crowded over Christmas. We were able to get a nice spot on the beach each day, if not at the pool. We would definitely recommend it. Thanks so much for your recommendation. We have passed your name to some friends looking for travel advice and hope they reach out to you soon. " - K.W.

ON LOCATION AT ZOETRY PARAISO DE LA BONITA RESORT IN MEXICO
Earlier this month I travelled to Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita Resort in Mexico and I loved it. This AAA five diamond all-inclusive resort is great for rest and relaxation and is situated along Cancun’s famed Riviera Maya.
Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita includes a wellness and spa, fabulous beach, fantastic service. The staff went above and beyond and received 2 thumbs up from us. Drinks arrived cold and fast and the food hot and delicious. A shout out to Victor our favorite beach waiter, Armando and Speedy Gonzalez for making our stay top notch.
Zoetry Paraiso is a truly luxury resort and includes a more elevated and personalized stay than the typical all-inclusive resort. Enjoy the twice daily refreshed mini bar, Bvlgari bath amenities, 24-hour, private in suite dining, complimentary, unlimited worldwide calling, maid service three times daily, a bottle of sparkling wine and fresh fruit daily, gourmet dining options with an assortment of organic food and beverage selections and even free Wi-Fi and free international calling to the US, Canada and Mexico.
My new favorite resort!! A true AAA five diamond property!
"Thank you for our fabulous trip to Tahiti. You seriously made it so very easy. What a beautiful culture and place! Seriously the most beautiful place in the world (as if I've been to many places). Even though it rained every day and was cloudy almost every day, it was still so amazing. We cannot wait to go back. Keep us updated if you have any good deals. Before we have kids, we are thinking of Maldives or another exotic destination. I will definitely send you referrals if I have anyone that inquiries about our trip. My physician colleague has already asked." - A.D.
