Insider travel tips for perfect Puerto Plata holidays

Aug 10, 15 Insider travel tips for perfect Puerto Plata holidays

Puerto Plata is one of the most popular Dominican Republic destinations because of its stunning scenery and countless activities that you can do. This is an excellent honeymoon destination but also a great choice for those who are travelling with their families. To this extent, before arriving in this wonderful location and taking part in those amazing Puerto Plata tours, here are a few travelling tips that will come in handy when you get there:

 

Travelling with pets

If you have decided to take your pets with you, you should know that the Department of Animal Health requires the following documentation to allow you to enter the country with your furry friends:

  • A health certificate that has been issued no more than 15 days before the arrival
  • Triple vaccine, anti-rabies vaccine and parvo-virus vaccine certificates that show inoculations 15 days before arrival.

These documents are requested for cats and dogs.

 

What to wear?

This is often a question that many tourists ask. Make sure you pack comfortable clothes, as Puerto Plata is very casual. Don’t forget your hat because you need it to protect you from the tropical sun. Of course, nice restaurants do request a semiformal attire, so pack an elegant dress and a nice collared shirt as well. If you plan on taking one of the Puerto Plata tours to the mountains, you should also take with you a sweater and a jacket.

 

Tipping etiquette

If your hotel has not already accounted for all the gratuities, the hotel employees will expect a tip, depending on the value of their service. Usually it’s 1 or 2 dollars per bag and the same when asking the valet for a car. Room service is 15% unless it has gratuity included.

 

Learn a little Spanish

Whenever you are travelling to a foreign country, it is always recommended to learn the basic names for words such as food, water, restroom, hello, thank you and so on. Not only will you be able to understand the locals better, but you will also enjoy the culture more and have a better overall experience. It is amazing how much learning small words and phrases can help you during your stay, so take a little time to read a guidebook in the airplane, on your way to Puerto Plata.

 

Immerse yourself in the culture

During your stay, make sure you walk the streets among the locals and experience the local culture as it is. Choose one morning to walk the streets of the city and see how businesses open up and locals prepare for a busy day. It will put you in sync with the local vibe of the city and make you enjoy your stay even more.

 

To conclude, if you want to make the most out of your trip to Puerto Plata, following these tips will certainly help you have a lovely time and be grateful for having taken the time to do the necessary arrangements before coming to this destination. The details are the ones that can make or break an entire holiday, so always make sure you have everything under control.

The perks of having your own plane

Jun 29, 15 The perks of having your own plane

Having a private plane is not like having your own car, that is certain, but while years ago, only the wealthiest men on earth used to own one, nowadays this has become rather common for businessmen, politicians and other public figures. The term private aircraft includes a wide variety of vehicles of different sizes or characters and used for different purposes, from pleasure to business or security. Of course, in case you are thinking about getting a plane, after deciding what you need it for, you have to think about the piloting options because the person in charge with the aircraft must have a professional certification. If you have already figured this out, then the next thing you could do is making a research on dedicated web pages such as http://www.centrelineair.co.uk. Once you get over all these details, then you will be able to enjoy the comfort and safety of flying in your own plane.

 

Availability will no longer be your concern

Taking into consideration that you have already established all the legal and technical details, you will be able to fly whenever and almost wherever you want. Once you have bought or rented a plane, you can forget about the struggle of finding the most affordable company which flies on the needed location and also about making reservations and booking the tickets in advance. Whether you need to go on a spontaneous vacation or you have to attend a meeting abroad, all you have to do is make sure the crew is prepared, and you can get on board at any time.

 

You can reach any destination in no time

In case there is an unexpected event where you have to be present, your aircraft will always be ready to fly. If you feel the rush to take a break and go to a faraway place, then all you have to do is call your pilot and you are ready to go. You will have all the freedom you need, because you can get to any place you can think about in less than a day and see a lot of places that you could not normally reach.

 

Enjoy the thrill of flying

Even if most of the times, those who use private jets are businessmen or public figures, sometimes those who are passionate about piloting also decide to get their own aircraft. If you are one of those, then you can understand that the passion of flying is very strong. Being able to pilot a plane that is your property is a proof of independence, but also a huge responsibility.

Tips for choosing your hotel in Nuremberg

May 07, 15 Tips for choosing your hotel in Nuremberg

Nuremberg is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany and the destination of choice for many people. Whether it is because of its beautiful architecture, the numerous attractions that can be visited or simply because they want to experience the vibe of another city, Nuremberg attracts millions of visitors every year. With this being said, if you have decided to make this city your next destination as well, you are probably looking for a hotel. Here are some tips regarding how to choose your hotel Nürnberg in order to make the most out of your stay.

 

The first thing you should look for is location. If you want to really enjoy your stay in this city, you should look for a central hotel, one that will allow you to reach every important place on foot. When you go on a city break, half the fun is exploring the city and you can hardly ever do that from a taxi. When your hotel is in the city center, even if you do choose to travel with the public transportation means available, you will still have an easier time reaching all your targets than you would from a hotel located on the outskirts of the city. After having seen the hotels that can be found near the city centre, the next thing you should look for is the price. Every person has a certain budget, so you should think how much you are willing to spend on accommodation and try to find something that meets that budget as closely as possible.

 

You will be glad to know that there several hotels in this city that offer accommodation for reasonable rates, so provided that you do your research properly and take your time, you will surely manage to find something that meets your requirements perfectly. And finally, the last thing you should look for before booking a hotel is impressions from previous tourists. This will allow you to make an idea about the customer service provided by the hotel you are interested in and give you the peace of mind that you are making the right choice. Even though the process of choosing a hotel can take a little longer than anyone wishes to spend, it is probably the most important part of your planning experience. You will not be able to enjoy the beauty of Nuremberg if you are not satisfied with your hotel arrangements.

 

These are the main things you should look for when choosing your hotel. Fortunately, this city has plenty of options to offer its visitors, so you should not have any problems in finding just the one you were dreaming of. In fact, you might even be able to find a room at a special hotel, one that has a certain theme and will make your stay in the city that much more enjoyable. One thing is for sure, your stay in Nuremberg will be fun and you will love every minute of it.

Do’s and Don’ts when travelling from Cancun to Playa del Carmen

May 06, 15 Do’s and Don’ts when travelling from Cancun to Playa del Carmen

Going abroad is always a fun and exciting time in any person’s life, even more so if the country that he or she visits is one they have never been to before. Packing the bags, looking for things to wear and taking care of the flight arrangements are not the only things which should be on your mind when visiting another country, in particular one as memorable and rich in culture as Mexico. Here, the most important aspect is to be organized and plan everything in advance so as not to miss out on the beauties of the land, people and architecture. Those who are heading for the Cancun international airport should keep in mind that no matter if they are staying in Cancun or somewhere else along the coastline, such as in the stunning Playa del Carmen, they still need a way to get from the arrival gate to their accommodation which can be quite far. There are many mistakes being done by inexperienced travelers or individuals who have not done their research, haven’t been here before or simply are not very good at organizing trips which is why we are about to go through a small list of things to do and not to do when in the area.

 

Do’s:

  1. Find a reliable shuttle

Avoid crowded buses by choosing a shuttle service instead and enjoy the first moments of your memorable vacation from the comfort and security of your premium transportation. There is no classier or more recommendable way to start a voyage on the Riviera Maya than this!

 

  1. Book in advance

Take the time to make a reservation before you leave, preferably with a couple of days in advance. The sooner the better actually! Just search for shuttle Cancun Playa del Carmen online and you will find great companies. The reason why this is such an advisable action is because transport gets booked quickly and you don’t want to be left with the worse possible solutions.

  1. Opt for a shuttle companies you can read about online

A trustworthy and dependable firm does not act in secret, but rather it spreads the word regarding its activities, the routes it takes, prices it demands and chauffeurs it provides. Opt for those shuttle companies that have all of this information visible to clients online.

 

Don’ts

 

  1. Don’t take a taxi!

Cab or taxi drivers can be found in abundance in and around all of the major airports of the world but this does not mean that you should trust all of them. As a matter of fact, most independent drivers will charge you extra, take you on a rerouted course towards your accommodation, waste your time and have high financial demands in the end.

 

 

  1. Don’t take an unknown shuttle service

Trusting complete strangers with your luggage, health or even life is never recommended but in cases like these you have to resort to local transporters. The secret to a great ride to your hotel is to minimize the element of novelty by avoiding shuttle services you do not know of or haven’t read about online. Look on the web, choose a provider based on testimonials and client feedback and stick with that company!

Equip your car before travelling

Apr 24, 15 Equip your car before travelling

Road trips are extremely fun, especially if you are travelling with a group of friends or your family, but they also involve a prior period of planning and preparations. Before hitting the road, you have to make sure you are prepared of everything that may occur and that your car is in perfect condition. This will keep you safe and help you avoid accidents or breakdowns due to technical issues. Here are some suggestions about the things you must do before jumping in the car and starting the adventure.

 

Check all the technical aspects of the vehicle: the fluids, the air pressure, the lights and so on. For instance, if you know that you should change the oil soon, do it before leaving, to avoid an unnecessary pause during the trip. Check the tires or change them, if you know one of them has issues, because after a long road their condition can worsen and they will be unusable. Another important technical aspect is represented by the lights, especially if you will have to travel by night. Make sure they work appropriately and all the signals are in perfect condition, and change the bulbs if you notice any problem.

 

Clean the car. Remove old wrappers or cans you left under the chairs on the last road trip, wipe the board and steering wheel and vacuum the floor. This will prove extremely useful, because after few days spent in the car, you will see how dirt will accumulate again, and it will become extremely difficult to clean it out. Furthermore, you will need a lot of storage space, so waste has nothing to do in your car before the trip.

 

Make an emergency package. You never know what could happen, so the best thing you could do is take everything you consider useful: charged mobile phone (and the charger), water and food supplies, a map of the region where you are heading to, extra tires and first aid kit. In addition to this, make sure you tell somebody about your route and make sure you have the number of a vehicle towing company. Although you have checked the car and everything seems to be ok, unfortunate situations may occur, so you should be ready for anything.

 

Design an itinerary. Grab the map, look for touristic attractions you may run into on your way to the destination, and try to create a route which will also include some of these. It is known that sometimes, the road is more important than the destination, so try to make the best out of it. Be flexible, but do not forget to choose the most safe and shortest route.

Mar 07, 15 Finding the best holiday apartment in Jerusalem is not hard! 

If you are tired of going to the obvious, yet not so thrilling, holiday destinations such as the beaches of Greece or the shores of the pacific ocean, here is a traveling idea which should be on everyone; s list: the stunning country of Israel and its prized jewel, Jerusalem. There are few places on Earth which can top the cultural, historical, social and religious heritage of this ancient city so visiting it can prove to be an enlightening experience with advantages on more than one level. As a matter of fact, Jerusalem is a multicultural city, a hustling and bustling metropolis where the old meets the new in a strange and unique harmony seen nowhere else on the planet. Indeed one of the most interesting cities in the entire Middle East and without a doubt, the highest in terms of religious and intercultural significance, Jerusalem should be visited by every traveler who wishes to broaden his horizon, to come across some of the most interesting sights and visit the place of worship that millions think about in one form or another. But the city is not only meant to be seen by religious persons and historical scientists, it is a capital like every other and it embodies the beauty of the Israeli and Palestinian people alike. In fact this extremely peculiar mixture of nations and beliefs is exactly what has given the area its air of eccentricity and element of novelty.

But by traditional, we are not referring to living like the first settlers in the area did millennia ago, but rather like the modern day Jerusalem residents do, in their gorgeous and lavishing suites which combine old décor styles with the novelties and facilities of the modern day world, in perfect harmony with the rest of the opposing elements visible throughout the city. Jerusalem truly is a place of contrast and this is why there is absolutely no visitor which will not fall in love with this location, from the first visit there.

Tips for traveling to Mexico

Feb 27, 15 Tips for traveling to Mexico

When you are organizing your summer holiday, there are a few things you should handle to make sure nothing will ruin your fun. Sometimes, even though your destination is magnificent, certain details can make your stay unpleasant and leave you a bitter taste at the end of your holiday. This becomes even more important when you are traveling to a tropical destination such as Playa del Carmen and you want everything to be just perfect.

How to spend a weekend in Toronto

Feb 27, 15 How to spend a weekend in Toronto

Toronto is a great city to live and a fun place to visit, but if you only have the weekend available for a city break, then you might have some trouble fitting all the attraction into three days. Here are some ways that can help you save time and some tips and tricks that will help you decide which local attractions are a must see and which can wait until your next visit. But first, here is an essential piece of advice for those who don’t want to be rushed when travelling in a hurry: book the best Toronto limousine service instead of getting by with public transport. Hopping on and off buses and subways can be a bit hectic, especially in a city as big as Toronto and by the time you arrive at the best museums and landmarks, you might be too tired to enjoy them. However, by travelling by limo, you will be able to enjoy some peace and quiet, have time to look for other attractions and, briefly, to relax.

 

If there’s one sport that Canada is famous for, that will definitely be hockey, so you should start your trip with the Hockey hall of Fame, a fantastic place with great hockey exhibits and plenty of things to do. You will have the chance to learn more about the history of hockey in Canada and, if you travel with kids, they’ll have fun too! If hockey is not your thing and you’d rather look for cultural attractions, then definitely check out the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). Visiting it won’t take more than one or two hours and not only will you see amazing artworks, but also enjoy the architecture of the majestic building, which was renovated in 2008. Of course, you have to stop by the CN Tower, which is already known as a symbol of the city. You’re brave enough to climb all the way to the top, you’ll definitely love the Toronto skyline. While you’re there, you can have dinner in one of the fancy restaurants and even go shopping. Even though Toronto is mainly a modern city, that doesn’t mean fans of medieval architecture won’t find charming attractions. For example, the Casa Loma is a beautiful building with mysterious underground passages and secret tunnels that will take your breath away.

 

Every major city has a noteworthy park and for Toronto is the High Park. Here, you can spend several hours looking at the animals, going on hikes and taking at walk inside the greenhouse. This park offers several activities as well, so if you are with children, ask about hiking and baseball. Last, but not least, it would be a pity to leave Toronto without walking its streets and taking in the vibe of the city. Forget about Chinatown and try the picturesque Kensington Market. Its quirky shops and restaurants will give you plenty of things to do and you will also get an idea about the lifestyle of the Toronto community. If you’re lucky, you might even get to see a festival while you’re there!

Buying a second hand car: good or bad decision

Feb 27, 15 Buying a second hand car: good or bad decision

As you might have noticed, the car market has not been growing in terms of popularity at least. Even though the economic crisis has reached its end, people are still reluctant to spending a great sum of money on buying a car. Of course the alternative is to buy a second hand vehicle or none at all. It is true that as far as living in the city is concerned, the public transport services can replace a car. However, there is the aspect of holidays. Road trips are the best types of family activities. Jumping together with your children in the car and heading to interesting location seems like a real adventure. So what is there to do? Do you make a financial effort and buy a new car or collaborate with one of the many second hand car dealers in Ottawa? The decision is a bit tricky, simply because you can’t make up your mind based on the possibility of a road trip that may or may not happen any time soon. Thus, when thinking of whether or not to buy a second hand car, try to consider a few aspects like the ones that follow.

 

It is clear to everyone that second hand cars are first of all cheaper than the news one. If you are not very pretentious and you do not care about the maker or year of making, then you could find great offers. You might find it difficult to say no. However, when deciding to buy a second hand vehicle, you have to look at other aspects beside the financial bargains you are bound to discover. For instance, the state of the car should be of a great interest to you. It really isn’t an option if it breaks every once in a while, because it could happen to you when you are on that adventure, on your family road trip. Imagine that the vehicle doesn’t start and you are in the middle of nowhere, together with your family. It certainly won’t be a memory worth keeping. When buying a new one, the financial effort is greater. However, you are buying functional car, in a perfect functioning state or at least, you presume so. This false security that new cars are safer and better than old ones is really no aspect to rely upon.

 

The truth is that there is no guarantee. Even if you pay a large sum of money on the vehicle, there is no assurance that it will function properly, and that it will not break down just when you least expect it. The advantage of buying a second hand car is that you can buy two or three different vehicles at the price of a new one. So, even if one that doesn’t work, you can always replace it. Quite frankly, the dealer is the one that makes all the difference in the world. If you manage to locate a trustworthy dealer that respects all clients, then second hand car do appear to be a good, wise decision that few regret.

A party bus will allow you to travel all together and have loads of fun in the process. You can choose several clubs in Toronto or even visit its most famous attractions while having fun with your friends. The driver of your bus can take you anywhere you want and during your trip you can listen to any music you want.

The final ingredient in obtaining the perfect bachelorette party is to make sure the bride agrees with everyone you are planning to invite. As much fun as certain movies can be regarding uninvited party guests, in real life these situations hardly seem funny. A real friend would never invite someone her friend does not wish to have on her side, so always double check with her the guests list. One thing to remember is to not get lost into organizational details and to enjoy the party just as much as the bride to be. It will be a success and it will be your merit. When you have the right outfits and the right party bus, there is nothing that can stop you from having fun together with your friends. A good piece of advice you should always remember is never to put the bachelorette party the evening before the wedding. You do not want the bride to have dark circles around her eyes and not enough energy to feel great at her own wedding. The party should be about a week before the wedding. This way everyone will have a chance to catch up with their sleep and look fresh on the big day.
