We love Denver. You love Denver. But we can also agree that it’s nice to get away from city life for a weekend trip or maybe even a longer vacation and simply relax. If you’re in need of such a break, check out these amazing places in Central America and the Carribean you can visit with a flight out of DIA via Southwest Airlines.
Cabo San Lucas
Live music at Cabo Wabo Cantina, spectacular weather, beautiful scenery, ocean water, surfing, and plenty of beaches to soak up some sun. Sure it’s a popular spring break getaway, but they’re not there all the time so it’s still easy to relax, hang with some locals, or head to the coves and rock formations of the Cannery beaches.
Puerto Vallarta is the perfect coastal city getaway along Mexico’s western shores. Here you can take a stroll along Malecon boardwalk, dine on wonderful local food, walk and ship the cobblestone streets of Old Vallarta, sip tequila, find yourself on an exciting ATV tour, or even dive in the warm waters of the Bay of Banderas.
Liberia and San Jose are both wonderful places to start your Costa Rica adventure. A stay in Liberia means modern churches, an authentic colonial atmosphere, rich history, and the gateway to white sand beaches. San Jose, or “Chepe,” as locals call it, is the modern hub for Costa Rican culture including chic cafés, shopping, dining, and a growing craft beer scene. To get away from it all, take the scenic drive to Playa Flamingo for a slower pace, sailing tours, small local restaurants, spectacular beaches, warm waters, and stunning sunsets.
Just look at the picture above and you’ll see why Punta Cana is one of the best places to visit in the Carribean. Whether it’s lounging on the beach all day, waterfall repelling, zip lining, or hitting any number of the upscale restaurants and bars, this Dominican Republic gem will not let you down.

With a rich Mexican food scene, it is no surprise that the people of Denver also loves their Margaritas. Whether the classic or variants with new twists, the 303 has something to offer all the people looking to chill with a glass in their hands.
So if you are in the mood for some cold Margaritas, these are the places you should check out:
One of the best taco joints in Denver so it is not even mildly surprising that they also have one of the best Margaritas in town. Their House Casa Crib Coin Margarita is a must try if you are in the area. It uses Exotico Blanco Tequila, cointreau , syrup, and lime, served in glasses with salted rims.
1514 York St Denver, CO 80206 (720) 475-1337
There is a bunch of different Margarita variants you can try. They use a variety of ingredients to mix with their own house-infused tequilas. Their $6 straw-Mary Margarita is a must have. It is made with agave nectar, lime juice, and some home-infused strawberry-rosemary tequila. Best part is that part of their profits from Margaritas goes to local schools.
3628 West 32nd Avenue Denver, CO 80211 (720) 889-7946
This joint has over 200 different tequilas you can choose from so that is definitely a good sign. They have regular tequila tastings and you can even order a coin style margarita based on your age or preference. Or you can just order from their extensive Margarita selection instead. Whatever you choose, there is no going wrong here.
1575 Boulder Street Denver, CO 80211 (720) 570-8686
The Margaritas here are served a little on the strong side so drink with caution. This is a no frills Margarita zone. You can either have plain, mango, strawberry, or their special, the “manberry” which is a mix of mango and strawberry Margaritas.
1525 Blake Street Denver, CO 80202 (303) 623-5432
There is no dull location when you spruce it up with some good design and appropriate flowers. That is what seems to be the calling card of the Newberry Brothers. Whether you want an elegant wedding or a swanky corporate gala, the company to call in Denver is the name that has been in the business for over 60 years.
The company was started when founder Weldon Newberry and his brothers bought a greenhouse on Garfield St. in Denver that focused on growing the famed Colorado Carnation. The company has grown since then and has been producing different types of flowers and plants. The company is now focused on the floral and design side of weddings and different events but still keeps their roots as a top flower arranger for special occasions.
Attention to Detail
The company takes pride in knowing what their client needs. Customers do not have to fear that they do not know which flowers they want to get or the intricate details of the design they want for their event. Whether it is for a big event or just a simple bouquet for a simple occasion, trained staff will listen intently on what customers want to convey and will show the appropriate options based on the information given by the customer and, of course, their budget.
After all, they believe that the biggest honors come from bringing a client’s vision into reality.
Of course, because of their consistent and excellent service, the Newberry Brothers have become the go-to place for all floral and design needs, not only on the 303, but on nearby locations as well. Major brands have also tapped their expertise in sprucing up their events.
So while they say that the biggest honor is getting their client’s vision right, it is also no wonder that this company has been recognized by different award-winning bodies like ICON where they won multiple awards like Best Overall Event and Best Wedding under $75,000 in 2011.
To get you more excited about this company, here are some pics from some of their events.
All in all, it is no surprise that Newberry Brothers seem to be a beloved company here in Denver. Not only do they provide the best floral and design service for weddings, birthdays, bar mitzvahs, corporate events and other special occasions, they also provide the best customer service because they don’t discriminate between big and small clients. Everyone simply gets the attention and service they deserve.
