    • Best Resorts / Hotels for 20-something singles to stay

      Puerto Vallarta Aug 19, 2014 at 1:01 PM

      Hey All,

      I'm traveling to PV with a couple of friends in two weeks and we're having a really hard time figuring out which AI resorts or just hotels in general will cater more to young single people rather than families or older couples. The only two places we came up with that were reasonable were the Golden Crown and one other one. After looking at the pictures and videos it seems like its almost all older couples or older singles.

    • A month in Cabo?

      Cabo San Lucas Aug 17, 2014 at 9:45 PM

      I've got a month clean on my calendar (November) and am thinking of bunking down in Cabo. I know very little about it except its warm, dry and a nice blend of lively and relaxing.

      What do I need to know about which neighborhood to target, what are the tricks to finding quality apartment-style accommodations at great pricing, what I can expect weather-, event- and vibe-wise that time of year and anything else I should know to determine if this is the place to be for me and how to get the most from my month as a temporary resident?

      For context, I'm a 40 year old educated male, just out of a long-term relationship, looking to clear my head, enjoy some good times and get some quality downtime before returning to the grind of urban civilization. Am I looking at the right place?

    • Is it safe to drink alcohol in Cozumel?

      Isla Cozumel Sep 3, 2014 at 8:26 AM

      Me and my Husband are traveling to Cozumel in December.
      We heard that drinking any alcohol that is NOT in a closed bottle, to not drink it because it will
      make you really sick.

      If it's not safe to drink mixed drinks, what kind of alcohol do you drink besides beer?

      Is it safe in SR Frogs, and Hard Rock Cafe?
      Would appreciate the info :)

    • Why do you people leave the USA in the first place?

      Playa del Carmen 12 hours ago

      I stumbled on this forum for travel and as I scrolled through the comments I thought "why do these people bother to visit?" I find most of you to be whiny, privileged, spoiled, complaining people who will not be satisfied with anything short of taking a slice of USA and plopping it down in some third world country. This is clearly a very very close thing to what 5th ave in PDC has done, and you do nothing but gripe.

      Let me give you a clue. PDC fifth is a glittering tourist trap designed to appeal to wealthy westerners (mostly Americans), and separate you from your money as rapidly as possible. It is NOT designed to give you a "taste of Mexico" but rather to isolate you from Mexico as much as possible.... think Boca Raton where the service industry all speak poor English and hawk overpriced giltzy souvenirs so you can hang on your wall or wear to show you are a world traveler.
      The people here despise you, but they need your money. They have contempt for you, even as they grovel. You can get over that, if you treat them kindly,with respect, and ask them questions about their lives. They are often very eager to practice English (I am teaching English to some of them here). Mexican people are, in general, some of the most kind and accommodating and friendliest people in the world.
      PDC is a perfect example of giving you what YOU want, which is small overpriced (CRAZY overpriced!!) refuge where you can indulge in an alcohol soaked binge of self indulgence, complete with sexual fantasies (they import girls from Eastern Europe who are functionally human slaves to perform whatever degraded acts rich perverts want) and drugs (they are sold openly on fifth). These, of course, draw in the crime syndicates, and the Zetas rule the strip, extorting "protection" money and wantonly killing any honest Mexican businessman who tries to resist, controlling both the drug trade and the sex industry..... and providing you a chance to "tsk tsk" at the horrible corruption and violence endemic to Mexico and to bless your lucky stars you don't have to live in such a filthy nasty place....., right.
      So, my advice to most of you is, STAY HOME. As bad as Mexico needs the tourist dollars, the crap you bring with you is actually more destructive than the poverty.

      OTOH, if you want a paradise of beach escape, complete with a chance to mingle with a class of Mexicans who are relatively wealthy and sophisticated compared to the rest of Mexico, a chance to expand past the small world of mall shopping and pre packaged life in the USA, a chance to meet people from all over the world, a chance to practice (or learn) a bit of Spanish, and a chance to take home true treasures (memories of some wonderful people), then check your ego, privilege, and snootiness at the USA airport and come on down. It can be a beautiful place.

    • excursions with 13 1/2 month baby

      Cancún Aug 30, 2014 at 7:39 AM

      Hi, really need some help! Travelling to Cancun in January with my partner and baby boy who will be 13 1/2 months when we travel.

      We really want to do some adventure excursions and days out but what is suitable for us as a family?

      I have been twice before and done pretty much everything but without a baby! I can only really think of Xel-Ha, Xcaret and Isla Mujeres but really wanted to do dolphins etc.

      If anyone can suggest any days out/trips that accommodate babies please advise.

      Thanks in advance!!
