Passports with Purpose 2012: A Luxury Penthouse with Pampering in Mexico

For me, the ultimate holiday cheer is finding the balance between giving to others while taking care of myself over the holidays. One constant way I’ve done that over the past few years is by participating in the fantastic travel blogger fundraiser, Passports with Purpose. That’s the “give.” The “get” is making my own donations for the chance to win a laundry list of sensational prizes.

Our founders created Exclusive Resorts in 2002 and pioneered the original Destination Club industry model. After leaving Exclusive Resorts, our founders were determined to do things differently so they created Inspirato in January 2011, the first club that uses the leasing versus ownership for featured properties, which leads cost savings for members.
