I am a more lazy person when it comes to holidays, I like to lay down for a week or two and actually feel that I can get some rest, which is why I always pick places like Tubac Golf Resort and Spa. My husband, though, is the climber type that prefers to see all the national parks and natural reservations. I followed him a few times and I was amazed with the beauty of these places, but I couldn`t do this year after year, I must admit.
