Travel With Pilkington: Mexico, Italy, St. Lucia...
Updated: Oct 22, 2021
Whether it is at my home or elsewhere, I love being a host. Every guest is important, and I want you to be happy and comfortable. Is a small group tour with me right for you? I wouldn't think of this as a group trip, but more of traveling alone (or as a couple), when you might run into some friendly faces and make new friends. I would love to know of your interest, so please contact me!
4-5 star hotels
Plenty of relaxation
Mostly relaxed, sometimes fancy
Stress-free for you
Customizable (add days, destinations, etc)
As of now, three tours are in the works:
Playa del Carmen, Mexico
January 13-17, 2022 (MLK weekend)
Cancun is so much more than cheap Spring break thrills that you may or may not remember from college! Cancun is luxury, value, culture, and excellent service. It also includes other areas, such as Playa del Carmen. Just 45 min from Cancun International Airport, it's close enough to be accessible but far enough for a different vibe.
Enjoy four nights at Playacar Palace all-inclusive resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. I chose this resort very carefully. Some reasons:
Upscale and relaxed
Family-friendly but mostly adults
Location--walking distance to downtown Playa del Carmen for a safe, authentic taste of Mexico
Location--close to Tulum, Cozumel, Mayan ruins, cenotes, and more
Great food, drink, and activities
Starting at $841 per person (double occupancy) for a Superior Deluxe Partial Ocean View Room (1 King or 2 Double Beds). Flights not included.
Optional tours to Coba Mayan Ruins, Tulum, cenotes, Cozumel, and more....
The BodyHoliday, St. Lucia
February 18-22, 2022
The BodyHoliday is a luxury, all-inclusive wellness resort in St. Lucia. Not only are food & drink included, as is typical at an all-inclusive resort, but daily 50-minute spa treatments are also included, as well as many other daily activities.
"Give us you body for a week, and we'll give you back your mind" is the motto.
Daily spa treatments
Fly to UVF and transfer to resort via boat (my choice), helicopter, or car.
Starting at $2100 per person (double occupancy) for Standard Garden View (1 King or 2 twin beds) or $2176 for single occupancy. Other room categories available. Flights not included.
Opera, Food, and Wine in Italy & France
Do you dream of a European tour that includes glamorous nights at the opera, cooking classes in Tuscany, and sipping rosé in Côte d'Azur? This tour will be perfectly orchestrated to include all of that without feeling like a whirlwind. The point is to experience la dolce vita and joie de vivre, which mustn't be rushed!
This is a work in progress. Here are some highlights:
Begin in Milan, tour La Scala, and see an opera there
Enjoy a cooking class at an Tuscan villa
Relax in the French Riviera
Create lifelong memories!
