For this reason, many of our Punta Mita vacation rentals include the services of an experienced chef who will delight your senses with spectacular meals, drinks, and appetizers. To say that you can experience Mexico through its food may be a bold statement, but understand that food is a massive part of the culture.

Mirrors are essential in any hotel, but maybe no mirror is more vital than a full-length mirror. It’s something every traveler looks for once they check-in, and, let’s be honest, it’s inconvenient to dress when you have to rely on a half-mirror that barely reaches your waist.

When we think of all the factors around accommodation, and what we consider when choosing a place to stay, there are a few key things it boils down to: cost, location, safety, and level of comfort.
Staying at a hotel vs Сouchsurfing is the very definition of traditional vs new age accommodation; the sharing economy (couchsurfing) has completely dirupted the travel industry since the early 2000’s, and now there are a huge range of alternatives to the traditional hotel model.
But that’s not to say that hotels have lost their relevenace, in fact, they’re still as popular as ever.
Each of these ‘ways to stay’ has their pros and cons, and neither has to be an exclusive choice / travel style; ie you may decide to stay in a hotel for one trip, and that courchsurfing suits your purposes for another.
Comparing the two and trying to decide which one will suit you? Let’s delve in to see the pros and cons of both options.
New York City is famous for many things, but one thing that has always been a draw is the incredible views.
From skyscrapers to iconic buildings to the fabulous green spaces, theaters, yellow cabs, and so much more, there is always something to see in NYC.
Perhaps this is why NYC hotels with a balcony are such a popular choice. If that’s what you’re looking for on your next trip to the city, you’ll certainly have many great hotels to choose from. Here are ten for you to think about.
Since the pandemic, the way people vacation has changed. While humans have always gravitated towards outdoor spaces, physical distancing and lockdowns have made us appreciate our natural surroundings more than ever before. And now the feeling is, why would you only spend the day immersed in nature, when you can also spend the night?!
RVs have become a hugely popular way to travel since the pandemic, because they allow you to sleep in your destination, and spend time in interesting and exotic places overnight. And beaches specifically can be a great place to park, offering a free ocean view, falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing ashore, and underneath a million stars. Below are some of the benefits of RV camping on the beach.
The hospitality industry has seen many changes since it first began in 15,000 BCE, when the Lascaux caves in France were developed to accommodate members of other tribes.
It has evolved from family owned accommodation, where weary travelers would seek out lodging, food and drink, to inns and taverns, until the hotel industry took off with the opening of The City Hotel in New York in the 1790’s.
Nowadays travelers have an incredible range of accomodation options, with hotels and home rentals being the most popular. If you’re considering which is best for you, this post will compare the two options.
As world borders start opening up once more, travelers are booking hotels again and noticing that many hotels are falling behind the times, having let themselves slip over the course of the pandemic.
So if you’re a hotel owner welcoming business back, here are a couple of points to brush up on.
Devonport has been called the Gateway to Tasmania, but much like the island’s first European explorers did, it is often bypassed by travellers who make a quick dash for Hobart, Cradle Mountain, or the beaches of the East Coast.
But The Cove oceanside retreat is ready to put Devonport on the tourism map and make it more than just a gateway, finally offering up a level of luxury accommodation that the city has always lacked.
With a prime central position along Tassie’s northern coast this is the perfect base for exploring all the famous Northwest has to offer. And whether you plan on sailing in via Spirit of Tasmania, or flying into Devonport Airport, you’re just minutes away from Northern Tasmania’s best luxury accommodation.
Set in a sheltered bay in-between Don Heads and Lillico Beach, The Cove is blessed with what are arguably the best ocean views in Tasmania’s north.
For generations, this large full working farm known as Cheviot Dale was enjoyed by its founders and descendant’s of the Lillico family. But now Bruce and Kim Robinson have decided to share their slice of heaven, and welcome all adults to check-in at The Cove!
Of the dozens of casinos situated along the Vegas Strip, none seem to receive as much attention as the Bellagio. The most expensive hotel ever built when it initially opened, it’s hard to believe a time without its famous dancing fountains.
However, truth is the Bellagio is only slightly above gambling age itself, looking to celebrate its 24 birthday this coming October.
In addition to its famous choreographed water feature, the Bellagio attracts high-end boutique shoppers looking for a bit of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada, or Gucci, and the casino of course also attracts plenty with its 5,600 square-foot BetMGM Sportsbook, and high table limit poker rooms. But despite its worldwide fame, there are many secrets and fun facts about the Bellagio that a lot of Vegas visitors don’t know about.
Most travellers to Tasmania are likely to include a visit to the Tasman Peninsula. It is after all where many of the island’s most notable natural wonders, endemic wildlife, coastal walks, and historic sites come together including the island’s number one attraction, Port Arthur.
With so much to do, it’s far better to base yourself here to discover the region than to take continual day trips driving back and forth from Hobart. And, set in Tasmania’s Eaglehawk Neck (which also goes by its dual Aboriginal name Teralina), The Wayfarer’s prime position places it right in the middle of all the Tasman Peninsula has to offer.
This is a luxury beach shack overlooking the water of the famous peninsula, allowing you to experience Tassie beach shack culture – an escape to a private cottage, vacationing like the locals do.
Famous for excellent hospitality and luxury hotels, every traveler will have heard of the Hilton hotel brand. And with more than 584 hotels across six continents, there’s a lot of opportunity to stay with them!
But with such a competitive accommodation industry these days, why should you choose a Hilton property over another franchise, a boutique or family owned hotel, or alternative accommodation like resorts, airbnbs, or even house-sitting?
We often picture camping as simply pitching a tent in the middle of the woods somewhere, but many of today’s European campsites offer a whole lot more.
Whether you do indeed enjoy roughing it a bit in the wild or are looking for more of a glamping type experience possibly along the Mediterranean with no lack of amenities, there’s a campsite to suit any personality.
From camping on a nearly deserted English island or high in the Swiss Alps to not even having to camp in the great outdoors at all, Europe offers the chance to enjoy some pretty crazy campsites. Here’s a look at some of the most notably beautiful and rather unique campsites worth a visit.
Many people shudder at the thought of camping, despite the fact most of us thoroughly enjoy spending time in the great outdoors. We have sadly become too accustomed to having modern-day conveniences like a comfortable bed, electricity, and running water!
There are however, a number of ways to make camping an enjoyable and relatively comfortable experience. So if you’ve been putting off that camping trip out of fear of having to endure an unbearable sleepless night, fear not! Camping comfortably is indeed possible and often starts with investing in a quality air mattress.
As far as budget accommodation goes in Sydney, you can’t find a hostel with a better reputation than the Sydney Harbour YHA.
With a killer location, killer facilities, and that million dollar view (think sushi from a rooftop terrace directly overlooking the Bridge and Opera House), booking a room is the best choice you’ll make.
But not only is the hostel clean, affordable, friendly, with spacious, stylish communal areas and all the amenities you’d expect from a modern hostel, it also wraps around the archaeological remains of colonial Sydney.
The Big Dig Archaeological Site is an area of land with archaeological remains from the late 18th century, the time of Australia’s first European settlement. The excavations are part of the hostel itself, and this remains one of the largest urban archaeological dig sites in Australia.
With rooms built around the excavated foundations of over 30 homes and shops from 1795, and artifacts on display throughout it’s halls, this is one of few opportunities in the world to spend the night on an archaeological dig site.
Being that Canada is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area, it should come as no surprise that it’s home to many incredible hotels and resorts.

Seclusion in the Canadian wilderness? Fun in the snow at world renowned ski resorts? Or maybe endless entertainment in Canada’s vibrant provincial and territorial capitals? There are hotels and resorts for every interest that easily stand out from the rest.

Even though I grew up in Ukraine, I didn’t realize how much natural beauty there is in this country until I started camping. While most tourists like to go to see the cities, local Ukrainians love to camp.
Why? Because it’s generally free.
You might know that Ukraine is not a very rich country, so we Ukrainians derive a lot of pleasure from nature. These 3 awesome places to camp in Ukraine tend to be filled with locals, but hopefully this guide in English helps bring some interested foreigners to my beautiful country.
