Even the most doting mom can benefit from some alone time, but, for some of us, even an uninterrupted bubble bath is a rare treat. How about taking relaxation one step further with a solo trip designed specifically for R&R? We’re not talking about a bustling resort where you’ll be the only one on your own and where your single room is an afterthought tucked in a less than ideal part of the resort. Instead, Mexico’s Hotel Esencia, on the eastern peak of the Yucatan Peninsula, originally the private home of an Italian duchess, is launching restorative spa and wellness experiences specifically tailored to solo travelers.
Mama. Dada. Namaste? An activity for the littlest guests at a luxury property on the Mexican Riviera gives new meaning to the child’s pose position. Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, a 267-suite AAA Five Diamond resort located between Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta, is now offering a new Baby Yoga class. Included in the room rate, the activity is designed to let moms and dads bond with their infant while improving flexibility and inner calm. Yoga is also believed to help improve a baby’s fine motor skills, stimulate muscle and nerve development, boost the immune system, encourage a regular sleep schedule, aid in digestion, and relieve gas, constipation and symptoms of colic.

Known as the Malecon, this lighted, 13-mile-long walkway and adjacent waterfront takes in the city’s Golden Zone and continues to the far end of Cerritos Beach.
