Isla Holbox
Holbox (pronounced Hol-bosh) is a small island in the Yucatan region of Mexico. The best way to get here is to fly into Cancun and drive to Chiquila, which takes about 2 hours driving. From Chiquila you take a quick 20-minute ferry and then arrive to this adorable little laid back piece of paradise. After arriving, I hopped on my golf cart taxi (main…

An Artistic Retreat in Holbox
  When I arrived to CasaSandra by golf cart in Holbox, Mexico, my first thought was ahhhhh. The beautiful white stucco building with a thatched roof, surrounded by hammocks and white sand. Then, you turn around and you see the beautiful blue ocean just steps away from the hotel. This is paradise I thought. Inside the main reception/dining area is so warm and inviting…

Snapshot of Costa Rica
    I’d been curious about Costa Rica for a few years, always hearing about the lush jungles, eco-lodges, surfing and yoga, so I finally decided to check it out for myself and see what this Pura Vida lifestyle was all about. After some research and speaking to friends I decided to take a quick trip to Nosara, a laid-back bohemian surfer town located…

Villa Marie
As you can tell from reading my blog, I love to talk about hotels. When we travel, where we stay can have such an impact on our trip. If you really love your hotel, then the trip is usually much better. Your hotel is like your home, it’s where you come back to every evening and wake up each morning (hopefully ;). When I…

Le Sereno St. Barth’s
St. Barth’s is an island that’s nothing short of chic and luxurious. I always enjoy visiting this French island and unwinding at one of the many beautiful hotels, which are small and mostly privately owned. One of my favorites is Le Sereno. This family owned hotel, located on a pristine private beach, is absolutely stunning. Upon walking in through the reception and out onto…

Tulum is one of those magical beach destinations that I could go back to again and again and never get tired. In fact, it seems the more I go, the more this place inspires me.

NEST Tulum

NEST Tulum
Tulum is well known for its hotel scene, mainly compromised of small, privately owned boutique beach hotels. Big name resorts and chains won’t be found here, which is part of the charm and allure of Tulum and provides such a unique experience. During my most recent trip I stayed at NEST Tulum, an 11-bedroom beachfront bungalow that opened in 2015 and is mainly referral…

San Giorgio Love
My obsession with luxury boutique hotels continued on my trip to Mykonos, and a visit to the San Giorgio Hotel was on my list. Upon entering, there’s an overwhelming sense of peace, serenity and warmth. Maybe it was the big olive tree in the court yard right past the reception desk. I just felt very at peace. Classic Greek architecture paired with a bohemian chic…

Sexy Scorpios Nights
Upon my arrival to Mykonos I’d been hearing a lot of buzz around Scorpios, an ultra-chic beach club with one of the most killer sunsets around. Scorpios is all of that and more – sexy people in every direction, DJ’s spinning sultry tunes, and one of the coolest atmospheres around. The design is stunning – very desert/rustic, almost farmhouse inspired, but with a modern…
