When thinking back on my best vacations, thoughts on experiences tend to always go to the dishes we ate. I can’t stop thinking about the day I had the pleasure to eat the meals at the luxury resort Las Alamandas a few years ago. It was all fresh, organic and full of colors. This Mexican boutique hotel is just two hours away from Puerto Vallarta in a secluded area, near a small village and far from the crowds –it’s a must stop for any family or couple. And, if privacy is an issue, they have the ultimate luxury with their own landing strip so you can park you plane on their property. I will never forget the amazing margaritas they made from fresh squeezed lime, crushed ice and the best tequilas from their bar. The best part, since everything you’re eating is fresh and prepared for your needs, they will ask what you would like on the menu for the next day or you could just be surprised, making everyday there a culinary experience.

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
