Brittny Gastineau’s Mexico Travel Tips

Brittny Gastineau Mexico
I’ve been blessed to have traveled the world and I’ve certainly seen a lot of life’s finer things. So my standards are high. And when I close my eyes and think of paradise, usually it goes something like this: perfect ocean, an amazing pool looking overlooking it, weather not overly warm, a perfectly-appointed bedroom, and impeccable food (most important). All this to say, Mexico’s Casa Aramara is my paradise.

At the resort, which is nestled on its own private property in Punta Mita, you literally can have anything and everything you want. By everything I mean, there’s a button in your room that let’s you call in an order any time you please. Craving a quesadilla or a margarita at midnight? It’ll be at your doorstep within minutes.

During my most recent trip, I went with a great group of people: my friend Rachel, Lance Bass and his amazing artist fiancé Michael Turchin—hosted by Joe Francis and his fabulous girlfriend Abbey. Our mornings started off with fresh juices and huevos racheros and Joe had flown in a Nobu chef, which meant lunch and dinner off the extensive menu was prepared with the freshest fish Nobu style. Can we say OMG? We also got got to swim in the pool with a sea lion that weighed 700 pounds. At first I was terrified but I thought, When in my life am I ever going to get to kiss and swim with a sea lion? So i jumped in.

To top things off, we would end our day with massages on the beach while listening to the waves crash—before an amazing five-course meal, of course. I got to learn what a traditional tequila bandera style was and let me tell you, any tequila lover would find it quite amazing. So if you’re looking to live out an amazing experience, it doesn’t get any better than Casa Aramara. Now I’ll let you have a look at my pictures (and video) and let you be the judge. Happy Travels.
