Forgot it’s Father’s Day this weekend? No worries, there still time to surprise dear old dad with a preppy gift he’ll love; a stay at the new Vineyard Vines Suites.
If you haven’t heard already, the nautical-inspired brand has partnered with Lark Hotels, a boutique hotel group with properties throughout coastal New England, to create guest suites at two Lark hotels: Captain Fairfield Inn in Kennebunkport and Nantucket’s 76 Main (which just opened it’s suite this week).
Forget what comes to mind right away when you think about this coastal Mexicana retreat off the Caribbean Sea. For years MTV—back when shows did not focus on teenage pregnancies and music video ruled the tube—portrayed Cancun as party central 24/7, showcasing the flocks of spring breakers. While that ‘party like there’s no tomorrow’ mindset does exist at the end of February and March during peak season of college visitors, they are not everywhere.
My recent journey to the tropical destination proved that the spring break scene only exists if you go looking for it. If you’re partying leans toward that of the gay variety, you’re in the clear, as the gay downtown scene was filled with locals and various traveling gays who are were not as rambunctious as your typical college boys and girls.
While downtown Cancun has most of the gay clubs, many come for fun in the sun at oceanfront stays. Leading a new gay hotel revolution of the sorts is the freshly renovated and rebranded Oasis Sens from the Oasis Hotels family, a chain of ten hotels and resorts in Cancun.
