Mexico. My perfect place in the sun. Where I can relax and let go and time stands still for a few days. The hubs and I recently took a quick trip south of the border for a little 'babymoon'- one last getaway before our new addition joins us in this world. We were so excited to head back to the area where we were married a year and a half ago. It was the perfect spot to reconnect, reminisce, and talk about our rapidly approaching future.
I had read a great deal about the gem of a hotel called Hacienda San Angel and knew it would be the perfect place to spend some time while in Puerto Vallarta. And wow, did it live up to its reviews. The property once belonged to Richard Burton and from the second you enter the courtyard through the carved wooden doors you are in heaven. It feels like a beautiful old rambling house with tiny candlelit gardens, rambling staircases and chandeliers hanging in nooks around every bend. There are three small pools tucked into the property, bathtubs on rooftops, and balconies that overlook the beautiful landmark Puerto Vallarta church. Each room is furnished with hand carved antiques and old sculptures and the softest white linens you've ever felt. We dined by candlelight, fell asleep to the tolling bells of the church, and awoke to see the sunrise from our private balcony. We could have moved in.
Should you ever find yourself in Puerto Vallarta, don't think twice about staying here. Truly heavenly and the perfect spot for us to begin our Mexico babymoon.
