I was mulling about where I would go on vacation if neither free time nor money was an issue. Then I discovered Verana: 'The Handmade Hotel' (as they call it) in a quiet corner of Mexico.
Their introduction says it all:
"A 3 HOUR flight takes you from L.A. to Puerto Vallarta. A quick drive gets you to Boca de Tomatlan — the last beach you can reach by car. From there it's a 30 minute boat ride along the beautiful coast to Yelapa. We will be waiting for you at the beach with our mules to take you and your luggage to our hillside location."
I am not crazy about busy, bustling places the rare times I take a breather so this would be perfect for me...and the view...

If you cannot make it there, purchase Their Book and dream about it.
Maybe I will settle for Quiet Days in Vermont (not Quiet Days in Clichy) instead.
