Every destination I go, I try to embrace as much local information as possible, and with the help of my local contacts, always I like to learn about the typical drinks. This time in Mexico to subject is of course the Tequila, but also the Mezcal, not very well known by many, but very important for Mexico. So the Four Seasons Punta Mita, assigned their Tequila Sommelier, to give us a tasting class.
What an amazing way to close my week stay at the Four Seasons Punta Mita at Riviera Nayarit, Mexico that onboard the Four Seasons Yacht sailing along Bahia Banderas, all the way back again to the Marieta Islands, and then sunset dinner along Anclote Beach, back to the marina over a fabulous dinner by the Executive Chef of the Four Seasons Punta Mita. OH and the final touch, a school of Blottenose Dolphins following our yacht and jumping around like saying farewell, such a magical afternoon.
Today I spent my full morning exploring the area of Bahia Banderas, and Marieta Islands National Park in the state of Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, waters of the Pacific Ocean. A group of small uninhabited islands a few miles off the coast with two main volcanic formations dating from 60K years ago, each called Redonda (Rounded) and Larga (Long).
Tonight we decided to go local, and together with Jason S. – Four Seasons and Richard K – Tourism Riviera Nayarit, we showed up at Rosa Mexicano. Not only amazing, full of taste and fresh local and overall Mexican traditional dishes, but also an incredible setting at this outdoors restaurant over Anclote Beach, with a terrace right over the beach.

You might say, Carlos is Argentinean, therefore Polo carries on his veins… but how about going a bit further, bigger and taller… how about Elephant Polo. It sounds quite eccentric right. Thanks to the Four Seasons Tented Camps Golden Triangle in the northern region of Thailand, I can say this this my new thing. Those of you following my blog regularly, know my weakness and devotion for Elephants, so I was quite intrigued and happy when this activity was proposed to me on my last visit to the camp.
A year passed by, and I had the need to see my girl back again. Yes you are reading right… I LOVE my girl. TongKam is the elephant I try to visit at least once a year, in the north of Thailand, at the Golden Triangle. Only one hour flight from Bangkok, you will arrive to Chiang Rai. From there the Four Seasons Tented Camps will transfer you in full style and comfort, to the Golden Triangle by a private transfer, and from there a brief long tail sail to the camp.
Dear followers, yes I am alive and back. Been away for a few well deserved days, at the Golden Triangle in the north of Thailand – Lanna District – at the fabulous Four Seasons Tented Camps. You know me, when I camp I do it in style. The Golden Triangle is located in the border between Laos, Myanmar and Thailand, and for the last few years, thanks to Four Seasons and two other main foundations, has served as the refugee and paradise, for elephants rescued from the streets of Bangkok. Both Mahouts and elephants were given a second chance, and this is one of the main areas in Thailand, to come and experience living up close with the elephants. See my brief interview with John Roberts – Director of Elephants for Golden Triangle Asian Elephants Foundation. Also visit and give your support to Think Elephants International. Congratulations and my full support in all the great work they are doing.
