After a late night, we woke up bright and early (7am!) to go on a hike and explore the area around the Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto. It was quiet and serene as we caught a birds eye view of the resort and the peaceful blue Danzante Bay waters below.
Upon descent from the hike, we passed by a cute jack rabbit, not at the least bit startled by our paparazzi shots. We walked along the beach and joined some other early risers at a sun salutation with the on site shaman. The ancient sound of the seashell and the sweet smell of copal smoke, aided our thanksgiving prayer and ask for new blessings from father Sun.
Working up an appetite, breakfast was in the grand penthouse suite. We were then treated to a massage at the Sabila Spa. It was tranquil; I could have relaxed there all day soaking in the aloe bath.
Instead, I retired to a hammock that called my name and managed to get a tan within the hour! There comes a time when you must soak up the sun and this was definitely one of those times. Late lunch was yummy fish tacos (of course!) as I had to get my fill before I left.
And then we learned about tequila. Here are 3 facts that were new to me:
- It takes 7-10 years to make tequila.
- Tequila is made from the agave plant.
- Do not have a lime after you drink tequila it as it mixes the sugars. Hangover mystery solved.
Over a celebration of Mexican culture, our last meal ended off on a sweet note – warm and tasty churros right from the fryer. Yummy! Thank you Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto for the amazing stay at your beautiful property. I can’t wait to return.
