The Globetrotter featuring Karisma El Dorado’s Palifitos

Get Away before the Holidays!
El Dorado’s OverWater Bungalows in Riviera Maya

The Holidays are about being with family and creating memories that last a lifetime. Sometimes you need to get away, just the two of you, to reconnect and rejuvenate so that you can be the best for your family and loved ones. While most of us go on vacations with our families over the holidays, I have found many clients wanting something simple and relaxing before taking on the task of planning and implementing their Holiday time off. A vacation before the “vacation” so to speak. Such a place exists for each of us and for me it has always been the ocean. If when you think of those bungalows over the water you tell yourself that’s “too expensive” let me enlighten you to a property that is only a few hours away from Houston and one that you are sure to enjoy.
