This is the third of four days they are spending in this lil’ paradise, courtesy of the hundreds of thousands of points they accrued in the Club Carlson loyalty program.

Before Aruba, they were in Panama for a day at the Aloft Panama City , and then Cartagena, Colombia for six days, at the Radisson Cartagena Ocean Pavilion.

Aloft Panama City

All the hotel nights were free from either Club Carlson or Starwood Preferred Guest points and the flights were on United miles. So, besides small tax and fee surcharges, there were zero costs on the trip besides local transportation and food and drink!

It’s ten days in paradise, for peanuts, and I’ve had to wake up to taunting emails, like the one below, for the past week.

Someone please call Diddy and tell him to quit this foolishness, because my parents are now hitting white parties in Colombia.
