Would you lie to your Wife?

What happens when you arrive at the executive retreat and catch your first glimpse of the icon for paradise called the Azul Villa Carola?

Most men find that they instantly possess new communication skills when checking in with the wife back home.    Here are some of my favorites.

“Things are starting to heat up”.  Translation:  The chef has fired up the private poolside barbeque.

“Going a few rounds with the competition”.  Translation:  Golfing with my work bros.

“It’s gonna take hours to find if they’re gonna bite”.  Translation:  5-hour deep sea fishing excursion for Sailfish.

“International discussions are scheduled tonight”.   Translation: Talking about our delicious Gourmet Inclusive specialties from around the world at the restaurant.

“We might be in hot water”.  Translation:  Drinks in the 10-man hot tub after dinner.

There is no reason to leave the ultra-elegant Villa with countless generous amenities.  Full access to a Gourmet Inclusive experience at the adjacent resorts fabulous restaurants, spa, and pools provides even more choices.

The one excursion that might stand out for all is a golf outing.

If you and the gang are only going to hit one course during the stay I recommend the Playa Mujeres Golf Club. 

Greg Norman designed this spectacular 18-hole, par 72 course with lots of traps and challenges.  The biggest obstacle to making par is the distraction of lake and ocean views.

A bag of Callaway Clubs will run about $35.00 and add another $17.00 for shoes at Playa Mujeres Golf Club.   They can fit men, women, juniors and lefties.

It takes the average golf party about four and half hours to finish 18 holes and the course closes at sunset.   You’ll need to take that into account when you have your Majordomo make the arrangements.

Be sure to add some time for the chipping and putting range because your outing comes with unlimited practice balls.  They also throw in a complimentary bottle of water, transportation and a shared cart.

The club house has all the usual major brand golf gear.   There’s a pretty good snack bar on site, a lounge with liquor and beer, and a Car Bar.   The quality is good overall and don’t forget the dress code.   Bermudas or dress pants with collared shirts and golf shoes.

No jeans are permitted.

You can get comfy back at the Azul Villa Carola.  There’s still enough light from the amazing sunset to write a card to your wife.  The one that goes with your surprise gift of a couple’s vacation for just the two of you.

It’s a good time to tell her the truth.  This trip was for business.

The next trip is for pleasure.
