A Margarita for Laura

The wonderful thing about vacation is enjoying the finer things in life that we don’t always prioritize (or afford) while at home. Recently, our Local BINGO grand prize winner, Laura Ludwig got to do just that as we sent her down to the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Resort in Cabo San Lucas for some much needed r & r. She rocked out our challenge last summer of getting her BINGO card stamped at some of Des Moines best local businesses. She’s now a proud Urban Card® member and we’re thrilled to hear, and share, the details of  her vacay:

Q: What element of this vacation did you love most, or what will you try to recreate here at home?

A: I really love all of the natural beauty Mexico has to offer, it was truly amazing and beautiful. I have always enjoyed the beach and have added Cabo as one of my own personal favorite destinations-it was so beautiful! This trip reminded me to step out of my box and try new things, which I can do in Des Moines by allowing my Urban Card® to be my guide.

Q: What was your favorite meal?

Most of my meals were eaten on the resort which were all fabulous!  I loved  the fresh seafood and authentic Mexican dishes.

Q: What was your favorite experience?

A: My favorite experience had to be the whale watching, it was amazing to be so close to one of the most incredible mammals known to Mother Nature.  It was amazing to be able to be a part of that, far away from the routine of everyday life.  

Urban515 is researching what people want when seeking out quality experiences. For example, when Kari recently traveled to the Caribbean, the villa she stayed at left helpful notes for her in picking the best local restaurants – who owned them, and why they like them so much. It was this personal amenity that made her trip extraordinary, adding to her desire to seek similar experiences elsewhere in her travels, and to have the Urban Card® add that very same local concierge service right here in Des Moines, Ia.

Q: In Cabo, was there a person (hotel employee, tour guide, server, etc.) or special service provided for you that made your trip memorable? Please explain.

Every person at the resort was exceptionally friendly and extraordinarily helpful.  I was very happy with the concierge, they pointed us in the right direction with places to go and things to do, always offering a generous incentive on services and amenities which really made the trip nice.  

Cabo was an incredible experience and I would love to go back someday soon.  I’m so glad I got to be a part of the whole Urban 515 experience and look forward to using my Urban Card® with an entirely new mindset.  Thank you so much! :)

You’re welcome, Laura. Thank you for being a proud Des Moines local and a conscious consumer. You’ve been a gracious winner, and we love having you as an Urban Card® Member.

Thursday Margaritas up…Salud!!
