That’s just an average 40-hour week for some people. Executives and entrepreneurs typically add up to 20 additional hours to their schedules. Grueling schedules mean professionals are tied to their handheld devices and laptops — constantly plugged in to the electronic chatter.
Hard work deserves a serious vacation — one where you can unplug from technology and melt into euphoric surroundings, void of concrete buildings, Ubers, and conference tables.
As it turns out, such a place exists. Let me introduce you to a piece of heaven on earth.
Stashed away off the eastern coast of the Baja California Peninsula is Loreto, Mexico — home of the Villa del Palmar luxury resort.

This award-winning destination wants you to unplug and unwind — and they mean it.
Only good food and good conversation. With real people, and with the water as your backdrop
The temperature is almost perfect, and the air is clean — no faint smells of exhaust fumes, fast food, or hot asphalt from miles of traffic.
The island has lots of wildlife to help you tune out and reflect.
You see these guys aren't checking their phones, either.
Did I mention the food?
And the treats?
You’ll forget about the boardroom when you step out on your balcony to these inspiring views.
This place was a short plane ride from Los Angeles International Airport, but it still feels like a world away from the boundaries of modern life.
It's a lovely place.
