When you think of The Four Seasons, you probably think of class, elegance, and fabulous upholstery. One of the last things you might expect? A Lazy River.
The Four Seasons in Punta Mita, Mexico has a Lazy River which tunnels (lazily) through masses of greens. The Lazy River is a complimentary perk for guests, as are the big, squashy inner tubes. One loop around takes about seven minutes, and you’ll see everyone from the cute couple in the room next door and parents with kids to the General Manager, who has confessed to me he heads there with a book or paper to hide his face when he needs a break.
The best time to go is around 3pm, when free mini frappuccinos are passed out to all the floaters. When you check in, ask the concierge about the other special hours; there’s a Haagen-Dazs hour and I’ve heard rumors of a forthcoming taco truck.
Honestly, upon reading this, why would you vacation anywhere else? You’ve worked hard. You’ve earned a float around the Lazy River at the Four Seasons.
