Royal Hideaway Playacar


Royal Hideaway Playacar is an adults only all inclusive resort on a wide stretch of beach in the Playacar complex close to Playa del Carmen. It's has a calm, upscale vibe. The popular spot is the infinity pool overlooking the beach. Be sure to try the guacamole made to order and the calamari at The Deck. One note - it does not have a swim up bar and the spa is modest.

Travel Gifts Part 3 - Safety

A few people asked for gift ideas for the traveler in their life so I pulled together this list of products that I use and love.  The pictures are affiliate links to Amazon.

 If you click on  the picture, you'll be able to add the product right to your Amazon cart.

These products worked well for me, but I am making no claim about them.

This is Part 3. Click here for Part 2. Click here for Part 1.

RFID Blocking Sleeves and Passport Holders
RFID readers can skim your credit card and personal information. These sleeves and passport holder block that signal.


Carbon Monoxide Detector
If your traveler frequently rents homes, I think this is a must have. A family visiting Mexico died from carbon monoxide poisoning in a home rental.


Cross Body Purse
I love this purse. It has great organization. You can't cut the strap. The main pockets lock. It makes me feel more confident walking around a new city.

Cord Organizer
I need to keep all my cords together or when I open my bag it looks like snacks are jumping out. Both my husband and I use this cute bag. 



3 oz containers
If you want to carry your bags onto the flight, you'll need to switch some of your favorite products to a 3 oz container. I use these.


Travel Adapter and Converter
If you headed across the ocean, this is great to pack. It's an adapter and a converter. An adapter will allow you to plug your device into a different type of plug. A converter protects your device if the electricity runs on a different voltage.

Cruise Captain T-Shirt

The gift that gets the most comments whenever he wears it is the Cruise Captain's shirt I bought my husband:



Jenni Chan Computer Tote
I have an older version of this bag that is my go-to as my personal item. I like all the pockets and the middle padded area for the laptop.



Portable Luggage Scale
This has saved us from standing in front of the check in counter trying to repack our bags.


Travel Blanket
This blanket is super soft and cozy. I often lay it over the hotel pillows if the sheets are a little scratchy. I like that you can attach it to the outside of your bag. The "Upgrade Me" is a little obnoxious so i turn that side toward the bag.



Packing Cubes
I am a packing cube convert. It keeps me so organized during travel - especially if we have two or three hotels. These offer a little bit of compression to squish down your clothes.

Grand Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta

 
 
Grand Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta is an adults only all inclusive resort with a fun, active vibe.  On the beach, rocks have formed a calm lagoon for swimming. I love that you can order food to your chair in addition to drinks.
 
If you love sun, be sure to head up to the Sky Deck in the mornings since the pool and beach areas don't get sun until the afternoon. The sky deck turns into a disco at night. Party suites are the suites surrounding the sky deck since loud music will be heard at night.
