DRIFT Travel magazine - - The Trav­el­ling edi­tor -

• Eco Chic Suites: All 23 rooms are open air, palm thatched cab­ins that float on stilts, over­look­ing the ocean.

• Stair­way to Heaven: There are lots of stairs; 176 to be pre­cise with 215 feet of el­e­va­tion from the beach to the top jun­gle room. I used that walk­ing time to en­joy the jun­gle and be alone with my thoughts.

• Book­ing a Flight: Xi­nalani is only ac­ces­si­ble by boat, and only dur­ing day­light hours. It is im­por­tant to book your flight to ar­rive in Puerto Val­larta be­fore 4:30pm and de­part af­ter 11:30am.

• Pack Light: You truly do not need a lot here. Xi­nalani specif­i­cally tells you not to bring yoga props, lap­top, hair ap­pli­ances, soap or sham­poo. Oh, and leave your stress at home too.

• City Fix: If you feel the need to es­cape the soli­tude and go into Puerto Val­larta for a lit­tle shop­ping and sight­see­ing, there is a wa­ter tax ($20pp) that goes to and from Xi­nalani fre­quently.
