For those of you considering the upcoming 5-night Gluten Free Gourmet All-Inclusive Vacation to the luxury El Dorado Royal Resort along Mexico's Riviera Maya -- with Celiac expert Dr. Alessio Fasano as the featured guest -- I encourage you to take advantage of it. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! There is still space available, but Lesley Hayden Hock, gluten free travel specialist at Travel Leaders agency (and the person working with Dr. Fasano and his team to plan this unforgettable trip), will need to hear from you by September 8, 2015. That's when a small deposit is due. El Dorado was voted by Conde Nast as one of the Top 100 Hotels in the World! The trip is a fantastic value -- and Lesley and Dr. Fasano's team have worked with El Dorado to ensure that there will be wonderful and safe gluten free options (and gluten free wines and other alcoholic beverages) at each meal. See the brochure below…and give Lesley a call at 800-487-6110 or email her at You can read more about the trip in my previous Blog post. Read more →
