I started this blog to share my experiences because I am always looking for more information when planning trips. And, it helps me when I revisit an area! To help readers understand my point of view, I am listing the clubs I belong to and my status. IHG: Platinum; HHonors: Diamond; Marriott/Starwood and Hertz: Gold; Choice Hotels, Hyatt, Best Western, Delta, United: Basic; Sandals Select; Avis, National: Preferred, Executive. I appreciate good service, and I have high expectations. Established for over 25 years, we pride ourselves on offering quality value for money holidays in the UK, Ireland and Europe. From the beautiful views of Ben Nevis in Fort William to the spectacular cliffs of the Isle of Wight, there is a destination for everyone!
Look at flights from different airports in your country. For example, compare flights to Johannesburg or Cape Town from London to flights to those South African cities from Manchester or flights to those top African cities from Birmingham. As you do this you will find that for flights to South Africa from Manchester or Birmingham you may find that the cheaper flights are not from London at all, but from Amsterdam or somewhere else in Europe.

Your Virtuoso travel advisor will have plenty of suggestions on what might work best for you.
Mexico did not rank at all in the World categories for Best Small Hotels, Best B & Bs and Inns, Best Destinations on the Rise, Favorite Restaurants, or in the more general category of Best Destinations. It did get one rating under the category of Best Beaches in the World, as number ten of 25 for Playa Norte in Isla Mujeres. Similarly it did make the grade under Best Hotels in the World, but only for The Saint Regis Punta Mita Resort in Punta de Mita. And presumably because of the dollar/peso exchange rate, it placed number 21 and 25 for Bargain Hotels in the World, with respectively The Bungalows Hotel (Cabo San Lucas) and Luz en Yucatán (Mérida).
Our friends had no trouble finding Monica at the appointed time and location when they disembarked at the ferry dock. I had provided Monica with our stay information, and she was able to enter our resort to pick us up in front of the lobby. The vehicle/van had two seat rows behind the driver’s seat, which easily seated 2 to 3 people in each row. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. Monica had a cooler in the back for us filled with cold Corona and bottled water. She spoke good English, and she assisted us perfectly with our day’s activities. She exchanged our cash for pesos, negotiated and made our purchases for us at each stop, provided information about the best restrooms, beaches, food, and more.
