Casona Plams in Mahahual Mexico

Casona Palms

We had the luxury of staying at Casona Palms when we visited Mahahual, Mexico last month. All I can say is WOW! What a gorgeous vacation villa!

It was perfect in every single way! I don’t even know where to start. The home is gorgeous, cool and comfortable even with no ac. The breeze flows thru the house so it is always comfortable. It is well stocked with everything you need. I could sit for hours just looking at the sea. We went for a snorkel almost every day. There are several small coral reefs right in front of the home. Each time I saw something different; octopus, lobster, barracuda, snapper, blue tang, conch, star fish, sea anemones…. the list goes on and on! The care takers were very nice. Angelina keep the house clean and tidy and kept the beds made every day. They were always there if we needed them, but never really in the way. Most times we didn’t even know they were home. We ventured to see ruins, and the lake, and swam in cenotes, ate tamales from the street vendors. We had a BLAST! I highly recommend this home if you are looking for paradise. It is heavenly!

We found this property on VRBO, here is a link:  Casona Palms

Top 5 Places to Go in Marbella Spain

The Costa del Sol is a vacation hot spot for lucky luxury travelers year round. The wide array of excursions, beaches and night clubs can leave even the most seasoned traveler wondering what he or she should do first. Here’s a list of the top five things you should do first next time you’re in Marbella or Puerto Banus, Spain.

1)      Old Town Marbella. At the eastern end of town, just north of the main road you’ll find Old Town Marbella. Old Town is home to beautiful cobbled streets, local bars, pavement cafes and the best authentic Spanish restaurants. Orange Square is lined with orange trees and is a great place to people watch away from the hustle and bustle of everything else going on.

2)      Dali Statues in Marbella. If you’re a luxury traveler who enjoys the finer things in life, you’ll likely be impressed with the Salvador Dali sculptures in Marbella. They’re located in central Marbella down the Avenida del Mar. Both sides of the street are linked with fountains and statues in the center.

3)      Find a home away from home.  Although it may not be considered a tourist attraction, the beautiful vacation villas of Marbella and Puerto Banus are worth mentioning. The true luxury traveler doesn’t stay at a hotel, but instead rents a home away from home. Marbella Rentals  is one of the premier vacation rental companies of the region and has villas ranging from 3500 euros per week all the way up to 70,000 euros per week. Some of the villas are beach front, while others overlook the golf course. You can even find villas that include nannies, chefs, chauffeurs and butlers. Talk about rest and relaxation.

4)      Puerto Banus. If mingling with the rich and the famous is up your alley, then you’ll love Puerto Banus. It’s a favorite for jetsetters, A-listers and fun seekers alike. If yachts and marinas are your thing, you’ll be right at home.  Here you can find the hottest night clubs, fine dining restaurants, pubs and music bars to fit any taste.

5)      Beaches. What trip to southern Spain would be complete without soaking up some sun? For about 5 euros per day, you can rent a sun bed and parasol on one of Marbella’s beaches. If you’re an adventurous type, you can try out water sports such as water skiing and paragliding. If you prefer to just kick back, there are plenty of places to eat and drink along the shoreline.
