Leg 5 – Alamos, Mexico
Well we had a great time in La Ventanna, some good days sailing, the others spent exploring and hanging with new and old friends.
Now we are off on Part 2! A bit of an explanation first. Milton and I were down in Palm Springs last fall at a aviation convention and there was a guy promoting his hotel/spa in Mexico with a discount. I booked 2 nights and then won a extra night in the presidential suite! This sounded good as it is rated as the number 4 hotel/spa in Mexico.
First lots of paperwork to get airborne out of La Paz and then an exciting flight over 60 miles of ocean (yes we had a raft just in case and some cold beers for survival). We arrived to the tiny town of Alamos which sits in the mountains and parked in a beautiful hangar decorated in authentic Mexican style( see pictures,all are of the hangar).Our ride was waiting and took us to the resort.
Well let me say this – Oh My God! This place is drop dead gorgeous and we were treated with our host standing at the door with Margaritas. We may never come home! If you pilot folks don’t come down here you are missing out on the most magnificent fly-I spot ever. Time to go grab a great dinner and see how many of the 500 types of tequila I can sample.
