Gone through a breakup? Love life in a rut? Our own ImageGal Samantha Bessudo Drucker, author of the hit book 90 Days To Husband No. 2!, has the answer. Here’s where you can visit in Colombia, South America to escape to paradise: Hotel Las Islas!
“After a bad divorce, my uncle Jean Claude Bessudo sent me on a trip. I needed the fresh air of the Caribbean to breathe and clear the mind,” shares Samantha. “He is always right! There is something about the Caribbean that inspires fresh perspective and the ability to smile again.”
Indeed, we DivaGals were all in need of fresh air, perspective and a change of scenery. “There are a few places in the world, like Paris, France, with the ability to change your soul,” Samantha says. “Cartagena and its nearby islands like Baru, where the hotel is located, have that kind of magic.”
