Traveling to Mexico in the Age of COVID-19

We often have friends who ask, “Are you still traveling these days?” The answer is “Yes” and “No.” Yes we are still traveling. We just returned from a trip to Palm Springs to visit friends there. I traveled to Georgia to help a friend who’d had surgery. And in November, we will make our annual pilgrimage to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. But No, we aren’t traveling as much, or in exactly the same way. We’re much more careful when moving through crowded areas, such as airports.

A review of Vidanta from our friend, Alex, a first-time visitor to the Nuevo Vallarta resort. We invited him and his family to come for a visit while they were in town this past November. Just worked it out with the concierge – they got wrist bands and a charge account, just like any other guest. Here’s his observations Luxury. Calm. Carefree. Metaphysically decadent. I played that game where I challenged myself to – without thinking – write the first three words that came to my mind as I reflected on spending time at the Grand Luxxe resort in Nueva...
