The Galapagos of North America

ISLANDS OF LORETO Its not often that I would describe a place as both serene and exciting, but that is exactly the case for the Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, Mexico.

Kayaking without the Effort of Paddling

As someone who started traveling a little later in life, there are many “firsts” on my journeys. My first plane ride was at 36.
