88…a lovely number! And its how many days til Huatulco Mexico!

Leave a comment

So I printed out my calendar today and marked the days til arrival! I love doing that! So many fun things to do as you count down on a trip! I love checking off each day that passes by…and it helps me stay organized too in all the things I like to do before a trip!

This is an exciting countdown because it will include the holidays of both Thanksgiving and Christmas not to mention New Years all ticking by before I head out to Dreams Huatulco! So starting now will keep me on track and organized!

I start out by printing a Monthly Calendar…then I print out a weekly calendar and mark down the things I want to accomplish and remember as I am counting down to “Take OFF”! Then the last month I print out a daily calendar to really make sure I don’t forget a thing!

So 88 days! Tic Tic Tic!

This morning I went over to Trip Advisor and found this!

It’s a really great review by one of the TripAdvisor Members!

I love how she refers to it as “my other home” and how she sings the praises of “The concierge, Alicia Nunez is top-notch in customer service, always going the extra step to ensure everyones stay is nothing less than spectacular.” AND…”The chief concierge, Everett, is also superb in ensuring each guest is completely satisfied, well cared for and wanting for nothing. It is this attitude of outstanding customer service among all the staff that makes this resort so enjoyable.”

Reading this makes me want to get there EVEN MORE!!!

She goes on to mention the Activities Team, The Spa and so much more!

Each day it seems that I find something new and wonderful about DREAMS Huatulco that makes me even more excited to be headed there! And Leoparo Laptop is very excited too!

So…if you are headed down to Dreams Huatulco like Leopardo Laptop and I…I suggest you read this great review…at the link above…

SWEET DREAMS!

Did you KNOW… What Huatulco means?

3 Comments

I didn’t… but after looking around the internet I found this…

The name Huatulco comes from the Náhuatl word cuaúhtolco, meaning “the place where the wood is adored,” since legend has it that the great civilizing god Quetzalcóatl left the inhabitants of the bay and port of Santa Cruz a wooden cross. The seat of the refined Zapotec culture, the region witnessed the movement of Spanish boats and violent pirate raids. Hernán Cortés used it to distribute the produce of his farms along the coast, which turned Huatulco into an extremely active port. This attracted pirates during the second half of the 16th century, including Drake himself and the famous Thomas Cavendish, causing the local inhabitants to flee. Thereafter the place was a fishing village, until the Mexican government began developing it as a planned tourist complex in 1983.

I am really getting excited to visit! Research is such fun and learning new fun facts about a place I have not been to is so exciting! Did you know nahuatl is the language of the Aztecs?

For example did you know there are 9 bays around Huatulco?

Huatulco and its nine beautiful bays are also somewhat legendary in and around Oaxaca. Some believe that the god Quetzalcoatl himself visited the inhabitants of Huatulco to hand down his legacy, a Holy Cross made entirely of wood. Settled in around 900 A.D. by one of that period’s most prominent groups, the Zapotecs, Huatulco was witnessed countless battles and conquests involving groups vying for primacy in the area.

History, Beauty, Art and so much more awaiting Leopardo Laptop and me! I am so excited about visiting Dreams Huatulco for so many MAGICAL REASONS!

Some Sweet Dreaming of Magic Memories on a rainy night in B’more…Missing the MAGIC!

Leave a comment

Yup…its COLD in B’more and that makes Leopardo and me MISS Warm Beaches, Blue Water and SWEET DREAMS!

I hate the cold wet weather we are having today…it makes me SLEEPY…

Soon as I came home today I hit the couch as NAP TIME was calling me! So after I cuddled up on the couch all covered up in my Leopard Snuggie…I dropped off the DREAM LAND and had SWEET DREAMS…

Just a few of the SWEET DREAMS and bit of Zoetry Magic from the DIVINE DOMINICAN TOUR OF January 2010…
