Now that the weather has changed from freakishly temperate to ridiculously freezing, I am lusting for a beautiful warm-weather vacation in a favorite location. Perhaps it’s my most recent cuisine encounters at the new Agua Fresca in Harlem or the new Toloache on the Upper East Side, but I can’t seem to get Mexico off my mind. In my last post about my visit to Los Cabos, I mentioned how unfortunate it was that I didn’t have time to go on a whale-watching trip.
I guess the Solmar folks read my lament, as they now have an offer that’s designed to ensure my quick return. The “Whale Watching Special,” a bonus for guests who book five or more nights at any of the five all-suite Solmar hotels, gives a chance to view the hundreds of whales that settle into their “snowbird” home around the Baja Peninsula. Included are tickets for two adults and two children to an intimate whale watching tour where spouting (when the whales exhale air) and breaching (when the whales leap out of the water and dive back in) are the order of the day. The special is available for travel through March 31, 2012. Call 1-800-344-3349 or visit www.solmar.com for reservations or more information.
