Hotel Viceroy Riviera Maya – Playa del Carmen, Mexico

The Viceroy hotel near Playa del Carmen on Mexico’s Mayan Riviera is quite fab, a relaxing atmosphere; you are the star of the show, not the hotel. The patio restaurant used for breakfast and lunch, is about twenty meters off the sea. This was the perfect introduction to the fabled Mayan Riviera as we gazed into the blue blue waters and at the attractive clientele.

Széchenyi Baths – Budapest, Hungary

The Széchenyi Baths are the heart and soul of Budapest. Here one hears children giggling, lovers canoodling and old-men chatting. Truly a local hangout where you can be a part of the city, as opposed to a visitor to the city. Széchenyi is certainly one of the places not to miss when you travel to Budapest. Highest of our recommendations.
