|for Playa del Carmen : inside Mexico news: goings-on about the towns|
Some media is making an issue over tainted alcohol.
We dug a little and here's what we found.
Yes there have been instances of such. But not in every bar and hotel in the country.
Investagations by reliable sources and The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel received documented accounts from tourists who were staying at Iberostar Paraiso del Mar, Iberostar Paraiso Maya, Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso, Iberostar Cancun, Hard Rock Hotel Cancun, Grand Oasis Cancun, and Secrets Akumal.
So it appears this issue is confined to one or two hotel chains. To be safe, consider avoiding them for now.
Back a few months ago, Mexican authorities seized 10,000 gallons of illegal alcohol after discovering an illicit manufacturer was supplying tourist attractions in Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
Perhaps this is no longer an issue. Tainted booze can cause black-outs and dizzy spells.

Besides avoiding those resorts implicated, a good tip is to get drinks in a bottle with a label you can recognize and trust. Like a Bud in a bottle. Or soda in a bottle.
If you order a mixed drink, ask the waiter to pour himself some and try it. See what happens. Could very well be this is history now.
You want to arrive at your Cancun hotel looking stylish and polished; not an easy task when all you’ve brought are easily wrinkled clothes..
Who has time for steaming, ironing, or dry-cleaning especially here where dry cleaners may not be at par, when you have places to go and people to see? Luckily, the solution is simple.
Cotton, rayon, and silk tend to wrinkle like old Rip Van Winkle.
Lyocell is a semi-synthetic form of rayon and resists wrinkling.

Polyester won't wrinkle.
Cashmire is strong and warm yet lightweight and soft. If it appears wrinkly when taken out of your suitcase, just hang it or lay it flat for a bit. The creases should go away.
Cashmere is a hair acquired from goats,
Do knit versus woven.
If traveling with two teens with wrinkle free jeans you all can book here Aloft Cancun where two 17 year olds stay free with you in the same room with two queen beds.
Wool and polyester combine to make one adorable miniskirt.
Also consider spandex.
Leaves are changing color, a chill’s in the air and pumpkin can be found everywhere; Thanksgiving will be here before you know it.
So if you haven’t made your travel plans for the autumn holiday yet, there’s no time like the present..

Spirit Airlines decided to up the baggage fees for holiday travelers.
The fee-happy airline sucked all of the upcoming holiday cheer out of the air by announcing it would charge $2 more for checked baggage. Imagine if you have four bags to check.
Hotel deal in Cancun. We don't nickle and dime you! Hotel Krystal in the heart of the hotel zone party center.
Most airlines are charging for checked luggage these days, so try to travel with just a carry-on bag. But there's the issue of liquids.

Goings-on about town.
Hotel deals with 65% off.
myth one: Pilots Make Tons of Money
Pilots' salaries have declined 42 percent in the past three decades.
Another myth is it costs top dollar to book a Five Star beachfront hotel in Cancun. False! Hotel Krystal in the heart of the hotel zone party center.
Myth two: Flight Attendants same as Sky Waitresses or Waiters
Imagine having to deal with the public every day after a round of drinks. Set to the soundtrack of screaming babies and old foggies bellowing indignantly.
Worse having to smile the whole time even at them old geezers, because, you're the face of the company.
Now imagine having to selflessly leap to the aid of said unbearable members of the public should anything go wrong. Like that whinning infant throwing up on the geezer.
Now imagine being exactly as scared of disaster as they are but exercise self control.
being responsible for everyone's safety at the same time.
One tips the waitress what 20%.
At least be nice to the stewardesses.
Especially if she's cute.
Myth three: flying is expensive.
The prices for airline tickets have absolutely plummeted since 1980
Yes you can take a bus instead of flying, and when you arrive after 16 long bus-hours, you'll wish you had just shelled out for that two-hour flight so as not to have squandered precious hours of your life.
If you arrived late for your miraculous $30 flight you will loudly blame everyone except yourself because you are never wrong.
Myth four: flying is dangerous:
Tens of thousands of people die every year in car accidents in the U.S., and several thousand pedestrians with them. The only reason air travel seems dangerous is because you hear about literally every single incident. Imagine the papers if they reported on every single incident involving cars.
One is 65 times more likely to die in a car than in a plane according to statitics.
Better to do Mexico than Spain.
This is no bull.
Two Americans and one Spaniard were gored Friday while running with bulls during the annual San Fermin festival in Spain, and a few stepped in it.
A Spanish man sustained serious head injuries after he was gored and tossed by a bull.
The American men sustained more minor injuries and had to clean their shoes. A 35-year-old American was gored in the abdomen and a 29-year-old in the scrotum.
Other runners were saying next year in Mexico.
The running of the bulls is part of the nine-day festival for fools.
More than a million dumb tourists visit Pamplona to see the bull runs, or or bulls with diarrhea. They are a big part of summer festivals in Spain..

You see a great shot from your seat.
Make sure to get a window seat.
This way you don't lean over the guy to your right or left as the case may be to get up to the window.
And avoid a seat over the wings of the aircraft.
Or where you're blocked by the intake jets.
Look for a good geometric design down below.
Then use a good photo editor as there are many on Android.
Speaking of Android. Our app About CancunSteve is FREE on Google Play. Look for it. Download it.
You see a great shot.
Man with 80 pounds of sticks on his shoulders going by.
Should you just shoot the photo of him with his sombrero? Or ask permission first.
Ask permission and get that phony smile and him flashing the V sign with his free hand.
Making for a stereotype trite photo
Here is what will happen when asking for permission to take photos: all your subjects will be posing in the most boring way or giving you a V finger sign. Now isn’t it a stereotype?
Best to create an interaction, for the respect of the person you are photographing but also to improve understanding of the situation and composition.
But to me, this will happen most of the time after the photo has been taken: showing my subject their photo, telling them how beautiful they are, having a good laugh, etc. And this is often the best part of being a photographer, this contact and interaction you can create with the locals by understanding the way they live and their cultural expectations.
Or ask hey looke here man what ya doin with all them sticks?

right in the heart of Punta Cancun in the hotel zone.
For those comming to Cancun for a long time you'll all remember the Camino Real in the heart of Punta Cancun where all that great snorkeling was. And is.
Then this morphed into Dreams. The dream is over.
The location is now to become the new Hyatt Ziva managed by Playa Resorts which you will remember is the former Real Resorts.
Yes once the Hyatt Ziva opens expect something special. A special place for special people.
The place is getting a real work-over.

Before departing get together and speak about:
Making sure everyone is on the same page concerning money (how much to spend once there).
And tastes. A lot of stress can happen if one wants to just sit at the pool sipping margeritas and their friends are insisting hey come with us out to the archeological zone
This is your holiday time to party, not the time to have a dispute.
Be sure to pre-plan your trip if an airport is involved in your travels.
Just reaching the airport can be difficult to do quickly, especially if you are traveling through a major city during rush hour.
Pack your bags, including your carry-on, before you go to bed. To reduce your pre-flight anxiety, prepare for your trip well in advance. You want to do everything possible to avoid arriving late for your flight.
Which includes yelling at the cab driver to 'move it'.
One important thing to keep in your wallet is a color photograph of your child.
Beats putting it on a leash or in a cage.
This can come in handy if it gets lost. Losing a child is traumatic for almost any sober parent. However, in case it happens, you should be prepared. Being able to show a photo might make a critical difference in the time it takes to locate your child should he or she get lost.
Especially if the child is strange looking with a big head and little body or something.
