Keeping up with the Kardashians in Mexico

Over the Spring, Summer and Fall I work hard to set money aside in what I call the “Sunshine Fund”. The money I work so hard for over the warmer months in Canada allows me to nurse my aging joints in the delightful sunny winter in Mexico.
One of my favorite places is the Playa Careyeros beach close to the Four Seasons Hotel in Punta de Mita. I could never justify the cost of staying even one night at this luxury resort that hosted President Enrique Peña Nieto in November of this year.Tight lipped troops patrolled the beach we frequent each Sunday and a Mexican navy frigate was anchored off the sandy beach. I shared my guess with Humberto “some politician must be staying at the Four Seasons.” My hunch was right.
Along with our Mexican president many “A” Listers visit this secluded corner of the Pacific including the curvaceous Kim Kardashian, teen heart throb Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Charlie Sheen, Kate Hudson, Kirsten Dunst, Lady Gaga, Ewan McGregor, Joan Rivers and the discreet but enormously wealthy Sir Paul McCartney.
It is very unlikely that I will share their fame and fortune in this lifetime(though nothing is impossible) but I do share the same sunkissed beaches and the pleasure of playing in the warm waters of the gentle Pacific.
And the best thing of all as an ordinary traveler I don´t have to worry about tight security or running the gauntlet of paparazzi. If I’m having a bad hair day which happens quite often, nobody cares not even me!
