Why choose Playa Del Carmen for you next Getaway

This little Caribbean beach town has grown tremendously in popularity during the last decade. There's a good reason for that – Playa del Carmen is a fantastic place to spend your vacation, hang out, or live. The town has grown along the beach, so wherever you go, you will feel the closeness to the sea. The main street is called Quinta Avenida, or 5th Avenue. Sometimes it's just called La Quinta. It is a pedestrian walkway and a common point of reference. The town basically has two parts. Starting from the dock and the main square going west from here is Avenida Juarez, where you will find the bus station, post office, police and most banks. Now head north on famous 5th Avenue, walking parallel to the beach. This first part of Playa is where you find most hotels, restaurants, bars and shops. Basically, the town gets less crowded the further north you get. Not that Playa is very crowded to begin with as far as towns are concerned. The next big avenue you get to is called Constituyentes and it ends on the point of the beach where the big yellow hotel Porto Real is located. On the beach between the dock and this point you have a choice of many nice hotels, restaurants, bars and dive shops.

Is air travel really more safe?

With the mile high meltdowns we've seen in the media, more and more travelers are questioning the safety of air travel. But after much research, we've come to the conclusion that not only is air travel safe, it's the safest it's been in years. According to airsafe.com Airlines from the US, Canada, the European Community, Australia, and Japan were responsible for about three quarters of all airline traffic, but less than one quarter of the fatal events (9 of 43) took place in those countries or involved an airline based in those countries.

9 Important Safety Tips When Abroad

Whether you are an avid traveler or taking your first vacation, you should always review travel safety tips before you go. Just because you are a good person, doesn't mean that everyone else is. Even if you have gotten away with taking risks in the past it does not mean you should continue to do them in the future. Here's an example why: Friends just returned from vacation, these are travelers who take multiple trips per year. They love mingling with locals and have never had a bad experience... until now. They were visiting a marketplace and made friends with a man at the booth who told them about a place to get the best soup and beer in town. They agreed to go with him and he hailed a taxi. They stopped in the middle of no where and were told to hand over $200. They handed over what they had and the taxi driver and 'guide' took off, leaving them stranded. Both the guide and driver were in on the scam. This is just one example of many true negative experiences when traveling abroad, and why you need to keep common sense and intuition at the forefront of your getaway.
