What is REAL ID?

 
 
 
What is a REAL ID?
After the terrorist attack on 9/11, the government identified a major issue with DMVs across the country. They were not collecting adequate identity information when issuing photo IDs and driver licenses. A set of reforms was put into place including REAL ID. Obtaining a REAL ID requires you to present additional identity information to secure your government photo  ID.
 
Why should I get one?
Beginning October 2020, a REAL ID will be required to access Federal facilities, enter nuclear power plants, and, board federally regulated commercial aircraft.

How do I get one?
You may already have one. Many states implemented the REAL ID requirements early. Check your license for a gold star or contact your local DMV to confirm if you have a REAL ID. If you don't, your local DMV should be able to issue one. Be sure to specify that you want a REAL ID. It may have an additional fee.

Do I need a separate REAL ID if I have an Enhanced Driver’s License or Passport?
People who live in border states may have the option to get an Enhanced Driver’s License. This allows passage between the US and Mexico and Canada by land. This counts as a REAL ID. A passport is also a REAL ID. I personally got a REAL ID driver’s license in addition to my passport so I don’t have to take my passport on flights within the United States.

Family All Inclusive Resort - Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta

Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta is a family all inclusive resort in the heart of Puerto Vallarta. It's a great headquarters if you'd like to explore the downtown. It's worth the upgrade to the Club level for access to the great upper level adults only area and the Veranda deck for a special happy hour.  I think this resort is a great value and the whole family will enjoy the swimmable beach and large pool.

Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta



 
 
Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta is a family all inclusive resort with gorgeous views. The beach is public, but feels exclusive since large rocks block walking access on each side of the beach. The pools are infinity pools facing the ocean. 
 
I love how you can have a la carte breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
 
One of my favorite room categories is the Club Level Swim Up Suites because the bar waiters will visit your swim up pool. The resort also has two adults only pools. The resort has two towers. One tower does not have balconies. The Club Level Tower has balconies.

Now Amber Puerto Vallarta

 
Now Amber is a family all inclusive resort in downtown Puerto Vallarta. It has an active pool vibe and a swimmable beach. The rooms are large and I love that you can book guaranteed connecting rooms. The Explorers' Club for ages 3 - 12 is large and one of the best I've seen at a Now resort.

One unique feature is that Now Amber is the only all inclusive resort with a casino inside. It's only open hotel guests and includes a sports bar.

The Secrets adults only resort is right next door, but Now guests do not have exchange privileges except for one adults only dinner you can set up through the Sip, Savor and See program.
