Relaxation: Puerto Vallarta Day 6

20110515-093925.jpg

The term ‘All-Inclusive Resort’ means that there are tons of things to do without leaving the property. So far we’ve gone on two excursions, surfed, explored the activities The Palladium offers, but we haven’t taken time to do what most people travel hundreds and thousands of miles to do, relax. Being that this is nearly our last day at the resort, it’s good that we finally got a day to do nothing but hang out. Don’t get me wrong, we have had time everyday to kickback, but there is a difference between taking an hour here or there and taking an entire day.

It took me several days to unwind to the point that I could take the day off, and I didn’t realize how hectic my life usually is until I had today. While I wouldn’t want to have everyday be like today, I no longer look down on the other resort members who haven’t left the pool area yet. Everybody needs time away from the life they’ve built to let go of the pressures and enjoy the fruits of the work they do in order to appreciate everything, even the little things like endless Ticket-To-Fly drinks, quesadillas, and papas fritas.

Bob is a lifetime traveler, whose main focus is making the most out of every dollar and figuring out how to do the complicated tasks of traveling. If you see him out, he'll probably be the one with the camera in hand and a pen and notebook in his pocket. If you like what you see here, just wait till you see what I'm dishing up next.

    These videos are so fun- and the perfect length for a quick catch up and by the time they are over, I’m so jealous that I’m not there myself!

    I know what you mean! You guys definitely deserve a day to relax by the pool. Sometimes I feel like this if I spend a day at home here in Italy (although usually it entails working at home) but sometimes you just need to do nothing! And the fact that you guys get free drinks and food means that you are just getting what you paid for! :)

      Yeah, I’m really bad about not taking time to relax myself, but, whenever I happen to take a day, it’s great. I do the same thing at my house though, if I plan to take the day to relax, I end up working.

    I’ve visited Puerto Vallarta and I can say I had the perfect balance between impacted days as well as just reserving a cabana and laying out the whole day. Puerto Vallarta is the place to do it!
