My Private Mexico Uncategorized THE END OF SUMMER




 And what a summer… dashing from London to Devon, on to Mallorca, and finally to Paris. 

On arrival in PMI, we headed straight for the hills or more correctly the mountains of Tramuntana to glorious ES GUIX I never tire of this, my favorite place on the island: linked with a stay at LLUC monastery making the heat much more bearable. 

We paid several visits to MILLOR our little family restaurant situated in the district of Son Armadams (Close to the tennis club) 

A great lunch with a cooling sea breeze at VISTA MAR situated in San Telmo a super fish restaurant overlooking Dragonara Island. 

A quick catch up with friends at MELIA, always a joy to visit these lovely offices, LAURA is always so welcoming LINK TO GABRIEL ESCARRER. BOOK.


One of my regular visits to MEDISANS the great clinic owned and managed by Dr Marta Serna, I cannot recommend her highly enough.



IFTM; a great travel fair, easy to reach from Gare du Nord. Quite a good representation from Mexico and great to see the ever energetic GHYSLAINE  

working hard for TIANGUIS 2024. The Yucatan was represented here by Cristina Leyva Aguilar, I have been lucky enough to be invited to attend their special event in Merida In November 

This event has been completely organised by Polo Sanchez – Valle of Metonymie, this Company always does an excellent job. 

So great to catch up with Olaf Bock von Gersum of “Native Trails” a trusted, good friend 

We stayed at our regular, comfortable Hotel Anjou Lafayette close to our favourite restaurants. 



FAIRMONT! Absolutely top of my list for a gorgeous place to stay, nestled deep within Mayakoba.” So far from the madding crowd”. 

They now offer “secret” all inclusive packages, excellent value with exciting restaurant options in and around the property.  These range from the barefoot, romantic on the beach to the elegant Tauro steakhouse and bar. I truly love this property. Currently, there are Christmas offers available  hurry to take advantage before they expire. We will be seeing MARCO PARAMO and ANA  RAMIREZ at WTM on the MEXICO PAVILION 

CABANAS DE ANNA Y JOSE! Who can remember this beautiful rustic beach front location, surrounded by sand dunes on the edge of Tulum just as it 

used to be. I began working with this family over 35 years ago! 

The owners are now offering a beautiful individual villa with a private pool 

and all amenities still available for Christmas 2023. 


Headed up by my good friend Daniel Mellado, I have recently placed a Christmas family booking for one of their stunning “swim up” suites. 


Limited availability for Christmas due to the popularity of this child friendly paradise. 


HOTEL CHICHEN, this small, delightful property is so old world it has been part of the little village of Chichen for many years. Often overlooked by the average traveller and hosted by the famous Luis Maldonado, this has all the advantages of the larger properties without the higher cost! 


Still working with this lovely simple beachfront hotel. I do so enjoy recommending these long established traditional properties and BEACHSCAPE  

ticks all the boxes. 


I would like to make reference to EVA LONGORIA “Searching for Mexico” 

on BBC2. What a joy “Food and Mexico” my two most favourite subjects. 

Still on the subject of food, invited to SANTO REMEDIO COCINA MEXICANA 

by Lupita Ayala of Velas Hotels. Food Fabulous! 

Grateful thanks to Cariad Marketing for their invaluable help in developing my website. Hopefully to be completed soon. 

And finally  

Our thoughts are with ACAPULCO and the Hurricane damage. 

I do hope some of you read the glorious article: 

“A female police officer has been praised for breast feeding a newborn baby boy whose mother was experiencing difficulties”
