Traveling to Mexico?

Tags : 

Important News:

Cancun Airport is offering a link to an on-line Tourist Card (Immigration Form) for passengers to complete and print prior to departure.  This would eliminate the need of doing it in flight while you search for that pen you can never find or while waiting in line upon arrival at the Immigration Office at the airport.

You will see on the website the following Travel Advisory

“Starting soon some commercial airlines will stop handing out immigration forms aboard their airplanes, we highly recommend you fill out the form(s) online now so you don’t delay your immigration process when you arrive in Mexico.” 

Here’s what you need to complete the form:

  • Contact information
  • Passport information
  • Full Name of the Hotel or address in Mexico
  • Arrival flight information
  • Email to send you the Tourist Card
  • A printer to print the Tourist Card

Tourist Card FAQ:

What is a Tourist Card and why do I need it?

  • If you are visiting Mexico you need a Tourist Card which is an Entry Immigration Form that details information about your visit to Mexico. The Tourist Card is per person regardless of age and how long you will stay in Mexico. The information you provide in the Tourist Card is kept by the Mexican Immigration Authority as an official record of your visit to Mexico.


Do I need to send my passport for inspection?

  • NO , you DO NOT need to send your passport. On the application form will ask you for the information needed from your passport in order to process your Tourist Card. When you land in Mexico you will be required to present your passport and your Tourist Card to enter Mexico.


How long do I have to keep my Tourist Card?

  • There are two (2) parts of the Immigration Form, the Entry Form & the Exit Form. You will be emailed both forms already completed with the proper information and when you arrive in Mexico you will immediately proceed to the immigration booth at the airport where the immigration officer will keep the ENTRY Part of your form and he/she will stamp the Exit Part of the form which you will keep while in Mexico. When you are checking in for your flight back home, you will present the Exit Part of your form along with your passport.

Jamaica Updates

 It is very important to keep our clients up to date with the things that are going on in the destinations. Here is an update from the island of Jamaica. Good News! The U.S. market grew 7.4 percent from 2016.
2018 February 7

Dear Travel Partner:

I would like to provide you with an update on Destination Jamaica.
First, I’d like to assure you that despite the enhanced security measures, which will continue to be in force until May 2, Jamaica remains safe for travelers. The extension does not impact the daily activities of residents and visitors

 In fact, now more than ever, travelers from all over the world are coming to our shores. Jamaica closed out 2017 with a stellar record of visitors, receiving 2,352,915 stopover arrivals in 2017, a 7.8 percent increase from 2016, which saw 2,181,684 stopover arrivals. Visitor arrivals in the month of December 2017 hit a record 251,800, a 9.3 percent increase from the 230,453 recorded in December 2016. The number of cruise passengers to Jamaica also grew, with 1,923,275 cruise passenger arrivals in 2017, an increase of 16.2 percent from 2016.

We look forward to continuing this upward trajectory through 2018 and beyond, with new and varied accommodation offerings and improved programs that provide visitors with an authentic and sustainable taste of Jamaican life.

Allow me to share additional arrival information – the U.S. market grew 7.4 percent from 2016. But I’m proud to say the U.S. was far from the only market to experience growth. Cumulatively, 2017 saw 405,174 visitors from Canada, marking an increase of 8.9 percent from 2016. The European market grew 10.6 percent and the Latin American market has provided the most extreme growth as Latin American arrivals in 2017 increased by 16.2 percent from 2016. Stopovers from Asia also increased 3.8 percent in 2017 compared to 2016.

Of the 251,800 visitors who arrived in Jamaica in December 2017, the resort area of Montego Bay hosted 32.8 percent, amounting to 82,610 visitors. Ocho Rios welcomed 21.2 percent; Negril received 17.8 percent and Kingston saw 10.4 percent. The remaining 17.8 percent stayed in Port Antonio, the South Coast region and the other beautiful parts of our island.

With your partnership, we are confident that we will draw even more visitors to our island in 2018. Thank you for your continued support.

‘Love Letter’ to St. Croix

Tags : 

This morning I opened up an email that really needed to be shared. It came from the travel/tourism to St. Croix and the U.S. Virgin Islands. And her name is Wendy, with a “y”. Enjoy this and we are here when you are ready for your next amazing vacation!


Once I started writing a ‘love letter’ to St. Croix, I found it hard to stop, as the appreciation flowed out of me for my life on this beautiful, understated, spirited, eccentric ‘rock’ I am lucky to call home.  The reasons to love St. Croix are plentiful, and if you are reading this,chances are you also love St. Croix.

Are you willing to share your St. Croix love to our facebook page using  #gotostcroix #ilovestcroix hashtags? It’s easy. We’ll be re-posting your photos and stories for the rest of February.  And… any true romantics out there that want to send a hand-written valentine (by snail mail), I will send a postcard back to each of you in return.  That’s how much I love your enthusiasm, and appreciate you for supporting!

I #feelthelove
Wendy Solomon

The many ways I love you…

I love my morning walks and weekend hikes in the rugged east end hills. The light changes constantly and the views go on forever. I love when people gather to watch the sunrise and moon rise at Point Udall, and the sunset in Frederiksted. I love how brilliant the night sky is, full of bright stars, and how rainbows and shooting stars are a regular occurrence.

I love gentle rolling hills that uncover a new beautiful vista around every curve. I love how there is cactus on one side, and a rain forest on the other side, within 20 miles of each other. I love taking drives – the journey becomes the adventure and often I never reach my destination because something unusual happens along the way. I love sugar mills and ruins that are just waiting to be explored up close.

I love to be surrounded by the glittery water from a kayak, or paddle boarding alongside a family of turtles. I love scuba diving with friends. I love that my sunblock, hat, towel, and snorkel and mask are always in the car, ready to go, and I love that my car has enough sand on the floor to be it’s own beach.

I love how (practically) the entire town of Christiansted is on the National Register of Historic Places. I love that I work in the same town that Alexander Hamilton once did. I love meeting present day locals and visitors whose ancestors can be traced back hundreds of years on the same soil..

I love witnessing the renaissance of Frederiksted and Christiansted, as new residents jump at the opportunity to relocate, reinvest, rehabilitate and reinvent the spaces that have stood for hundreds of years, creating a new chapter in the history books. I love watching the transformation of historic buildings as they evolve for modern day uses.

I love how even our local artists and artisans create products tied to the land and culture of St. Croix. The hook bracelet, the chaney collections, textiles and original fashion collections, housewares made from fallen mahogany in the rainforest, chocolate from cacao plants, hot sauce from our peppers and spices, skincare from our natural botanicals, and local recipes from the freshest local ingredients and a melting pot of African, Caribbean, and European cultures. I love reading books by local St. Croix authors, taking art classes with local artists,and pushing my limits alongside accomplished local pros, athletes and yogis.

I love when our visitors say that upon returning to St. Croix, they are “home”. I love that we are a home people are nostalgic for. I love when island guests and residents become lifelong friends. I love how the land and people are connected. I love the strong community we have. I love the resilience of the people. I love how the landscape bounces back after major storms (the people… we’re bouncing back too). I love that the most.

I love the things St. Croix is NOT just as much. Not Crowded. Not Noisy. Not Over-Developed . Not Commercialized. Not fake or man-made artificial. Not a bustling hub. Not a hub of anything but authenticity, the knockout beautiful scenery is just a bonus. I also love the passion of the community – rising to face the big and small challenges our territory faces and fill the gaps where govt services may be lacking. It is the hard work of the people that shape the identity of St. Croix – past, present, and future. It is an honor to be a part of it.

Love always, Wendy Solomon

Tipping Tips for Travelers

While there are dozens of items on the average traveler’s packing checklist, one item commonly omitted is tip money. People are often are confused about the rules and customs for tipping. A recent article written for Travel Market Report by Rich Thomaselli helped demystify the topic, and we wanted to share some of his advice with you.

See the source image

The Ultimate Guide to Tipping While Traveling

It’s always one of the more interesting conundrums of traveling, either domestically or abroad — whom do you tip, when, and how much? Here are some guidelines to pass along.

If a rental car shuttle driver is helping load those heavy suitcases, it’s a good idea to tip him/her at least a dollar or two per bag. Double that for airport skycaps who assist in checking your bags. And depending on the length of the trip from counter to gate, a wheelchair attendant should receive $5 and up.


Arriving by taxi or limo? Taxi drivers should receive 15 to 20% for good service. You can adjust upward or downward for a particularly good, or bad, ride. Same thing with limo drivers.

If you drive in with your own car and use the hotel’s valet service, there’s always the question of when to tip. Coming, or going? Answer: Definitely going. Tipping $2 to $5 when the valet retrieves your car when you are leaving the hotel is fairly common.

Bellhops should receive $3 to $5 a bag, obviously on the lower end for a gym bag or shopping bag and on the higher end for carry-ons and larger suitcases.

Tipping the concierge can be tricky, so think of it in terms of hierarchy. A simple dinner reservation is worth a tip of $5 to $10. But if he or she is scoring you tickets to Hamilton or pulling strings to get you front of the line at a trendy club, it clearly demands much, much more — even upward of $50. The concierge doesn’t necessarily expect it, but it is always appreciated.

Your hotel maid deserves a tip, and most experts suggest $2 to $5 a day, a little more for a larger room or a suite. Clearly mark the envelope and place it on the nightstand or another prominent place.

If you are staying at a high-end hotel/resort and have butler service — especially when the butler is unpacking and packing bags, getting your ironing or dry-cleaning done, drawing a bath, providing turn-down service — the general rule of thumb is 5% of the hotel bill.

Just as you would tip your restaurant waiter or bartender while going out at home, certainly tip them at a hotel, and be sure to tip a few dollars to those who deliver your room service order.

It doesn’t hurt to tip service workers who bring you an umbrella or towels at the hotel pool, $1 to $2 per item.

Cruising is an interesting case, and some of the homework will fall on you or your travel agent for the research.

You should know the tipping policy of your cruise line before you go. In general, the mainstream cruise lines will charge you about $12 a day per person (or $24 for a two-person cabin) in gratuities. That money is split among the crew members whom you come in contact with most every day, notably your housekeeping staff and your dining staff.

And some cruise lines, such as Seabourn and Regent Seven Seas, have strict no tipping policies because such charges are often built into the cost of the ticket.

Your bar bill will likely already include a 15 percent tip on it, but just like a night out at any establishment a few dollars up front will certainly serve you well with your bartender.

Spa treatments also generally include a 15 to 20 percent tip on the bill.

It is still customary to give a couple of dollars to porters who help with your bags and for a room service order.

Shore excursions are sometimes set up by companies separate from the cruise line, but you should generally tip your guide $2 to $4 for half-a-day, double that for full-day excursions.

In general, tip your guide $10 a day and your tracker $5 per day, at the end of the safari.

Adventure guides
Did you raft down the Colorado River and live to tell about it? Think about tipping your guide $25 per day per person in your party.

Tour bus drivers
While not necessarily customary, tipping the driver a couple of dollars when you are returned to the hotel or to the port is a nice gesture. There are times when a tour organizer might ask the bus passengers to drop a dollar or two in a jar for the driver as well.

Traveling abroad
Again, this is an area where you and your travel agent must do some research, because different countries have varying, and sometimes opposite, rules and customs. In some countries, such as Japan and China, tipping, especially at a restaurant, is considered an insult. In countries like the United Arab Emirates, tipping is a government mandate and is often added to a bill.

Travel Identifications

See the source image

It can be tricky to know the difference between passport books, passport cards and other types of identification and when each type of ID is needed when traveling. And with new laws requiring IDs to be REAL ID compliant combined with rumors of a “passport crisis,” it can all get very confusing. Here’s what you need to know to help your clients understand these two issues.

First, REAL ID compliance is a standard approved by Congress in 2005 to make the issuing and use of driver’s licenses and other state-issued ID cards more secure and less prone to fraud. It’s a state-level issue that affects travelers flying domestically, and the first big deadline for states to meet is January 22, 2018.

The looming passport crisis is not as scary as it sounds, but it could affect international travelers in a big way. The crisis refers to an influx of passport renewals expected to happen in 2017 that will slow down processing times. The U.S. State Department is currently recommending travelers with soon-to-be-expired passports to renew as soon as possible in order to avoid any delays.

Here’s some basic information about these two issues.

WHO NEEDS IT All U.S. citizens flying domestically. Anyone traveling internationally by land, sea or air.
WHEN YOU NEED IT By October 1, 2020 At the time of travel. Some destinations require that travelers have a passport for at least 3 months before traveling there.
WHAT IS IT A state-issued driver’s license or identification card that meets minimum security standards set by the Federal Government. A document issued by the Department of State to show ultimate proof of citizenship and to entitle citizens to travel to foreign countries.

Note: A U.S. passport is REAL ID compliant.

WHERE TO GET IT From your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (when they are compliant with the standards). From the Department of State.
HOW TO GET IT Renew your driver’s license or identification card and present documents that further prove your identity (e.g., birth certificate, Social Security card). To apply for a new passport, apply in person at a Department of State Passport Agency or submit an application by mail.

To renew a passport, mail a renewal application to the Department of State.

WHEN TO GET IT As soon as your state is REAL ID compliant.

If your state is not REAL ID compliant by January 22, 2018, you will have to show an alternative form of acceptable identification for domestic air travel.

Apply for a new passport 6 months or more before traveling.

Renew your passport when it has 6 months validity remaining.

A Quick Update on REAL ID



A Quick Update on REAL ID
Travel insights from VAX VacationAccess

The deadline for REAL ID is once again extended, but this time until October 1, 2020. There has been a lot of confusing news out there about the true deadline and deadline extensions. REAL ID affects everyone who flies domestically, so it’s important for you to know what’s really going on so you can help your clients be prepared.

VAX contacted TSA via email and they said that starting on January 22, 2018, if a traveler’s driver’s license or ID card is issued by a State that is not compliant with REAL ID and has not received an extension, the traveler must present an alternate form of acceptable ID. According to this page on the Department of Homeland Security’s website, however, all states are either compliant or have been granted an extension until October 10, 2018 to issue REAL ID-compliant IDs. So the January 22, 2018 date is not an issue for travelers.

If a traveler’s ID is issued by a compliant State or a State with an extension (so, all states), it is not necessary for them to renew their ID early. Unexpired licenses from compliant States or States with extensions will continue to be accepted.

Starting on October 1, 2020, every passenger must present a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license or ID card or another acceptable form of ID for air travel.

Here’s a refresher on REAL ID. In 2005, after a recommendation from the 9/11 Commission, Congress passed the REAL ID Act, which enforces a minimum security standard for states issuing licenses. Ultimately, the REAL ID Act aims to create safer travel by eliminating the occurrence of falsified identification.

It’s a good idea to review this information regularly in case further changes are made. And because this is such a confusing topic and TSA’s web pages on it are not always clear, it may not hurt to tell your clients to bring their passport as a main or alternate source of identification for both domestic and international travel if you have any doubts about their ID type and their state’s compliance.

15 Reasons Why Frequent Travelers Are More Likely To Be Successful

Success can be defined differently for everyone but the fact is some people achieve it and some people don’t. What is it that successful people do or have to find success that others don’t? There has been a lot written about the skills and habits needed to live a successful life and I think most of us know the things we could work on like building confidence or overcoming fears to be more successful in areas we want to. There are people that have a higher likelihood for success than most. Frequent travelers, people constantly on the move learn many life skills exploring our world. Here are 15 reasons why frequent travelers are more likely to be successful because of that:

1. They Know how to Thrive Outside their Comfort Zone

Frequent travelers are in unfamiliar situations regularly. They must work through the unknown because of necessity. Faced with countless new experiences they learn valuable coping strategies that help them shoulder uncertainty and remain calm and effective. This is a key skill for success in both business and leading people.  

2. They Welcome and Embrace Change 

Travelers invite novelty. People constantly surrounded by new and different things avoid boredom and learn to focus better. This way of thinking inspires innovation and creativity.

3. They Know how to Manage their Emotions 

Frequent travelers experience varying levels of stress routinely; tight flight connections, interrogations by border guards, and rude hotel staff can all cause ones nerves to fray. Travelers hone the ability to manage emotions and remain calm under pressure developing keen self-awareness. Being self-aware increases productivity and helps people find what makes them happy in life, the ultimate success.

4. They Trust and don’t Always Need to be in Control

Travelers have to rely on people they don’t know all the time. They deal with language barriers, cab drivers in strange cities and are often dependent on the kindness of strangers. Accepting the fact they can’t always be in control helps them build new relationships. They develop confidence in their ability to choose friends and acquaintances that are genuine and trustworthy.

5. They Manage Fear and move Past it

The key to success is taking action. When you travel a lot you put yourself in situations where there is no turning back.This makes people face fears head on and develop coping skills to take action despite the fear.

6. They Recognize and Seize Opportunities 

Travelers have a wider breadth of experience and knowledge about the world. They learn new and better ways of doing things being exposed to different customs and cultures. This knowledge  helps them recognize opportunities to improve and innovate at home and in the places they visit.

7. They Know how to Negotiate to get What they Want 

Travelers negotiate to avoid being taken advantage of. Good negotiating skills are needed to get what you want or need without becoming pushy or aggressive. This skill is important in influencing others and helping them understand and accept your ideas in business and as a leader.

8. They see Beauty Where Most don’t 

Frequent travelers see many different types of things and train their brains to focus on the beautiful. Constant novelty keeps the mind and the eyes sharp. People who travel see beauty where others see the ordinary. This skill belongs to great photographers, poetic writers and fertilizes the garden where inspiration grows.

9. They are More Confident and Know how to Fake Confidence when Vulnerable

People who travel a lot learn to rely on themselves and are confident that they can accomplish what they want to. This belief helps them to be persistent in the face of obstacles and recover better after failure because of that.

10. They Better Understand Differences in People and are More Accepting 

Travelers are always meeting new people. They become good at asking questions to learn about the people they meet and what their opinions are on their city and culture. The questions come naturally because of travelers curiosity and desire to learn about the places they visit. This inspires great conversations that help travelers understand and accept the person and their views on a deeper level. They make friends easily and are loved by many because of this.

11. They Know When to live in the Moment 

Learning to live in the moment has many mental and physical benefits. Frequent travelers know their time in a place is fleeting. This helps them think to live in the moment more than average.

12. They Smile More and feel Happiness More Often 

Studies show travel makes us happy. Frequent travelers smile more than average because they explore new places regularly. They feel happy because they get to meet different people, see incredible sights, eat new and delicious food. That living in the moment skill helps with happiness to.

13.They Understand the Importance of Listening 

This is a life skill that a lot of people struggle with. Learning to focus and really listen to what people tell us is so important to success in life. Achieving success is about building relationships and you build strong relationships understanding people. People who travel a lot know you really need to listen to have good understanding.

14. They are Less Judgmental and More Empathetic 

Great leaders know the ability to relate to others gains loyalty and moves business forward. Frequent travelers learn to show empathy and avoid being judgmental because of that. Empathy comes from a willingness to understand, people who travel come by that willingness naturally

15. They may not be Rich but they Know how to Save and Spend Wisely 

Frequent travelers know where their money goes farther. Making the world your home you can choose places based on cost of living. People who travel and work can make less and live well in a lot of countries.

Travel inspires and educates in a ways that build character and develop skills naturally. Frequent travelers learn these skills and are more likely to be a success as a result.

Jamaica Ministry of Tourism Update

January 23, 2018
Dear Jamaica Travel Specialist:
  Thank you for your continued support of Destination Jamaica.  The new year has started with a lot of excitement!

No doubt you have received questions regarding the current state of public emergency for the parish of St. James, implemented by Government.

A State of Public Emergency is a tool to ensure enhanced security for all persons entering and leaving a particular geographic area. It does not require any modification of movement as restrictions in the stated areas should not adversely impact law abiding persons.

All business activities will function as normal including all airports, cruise ports, hotels and attractions.

Allow me to reassure you, our valued travel partner, that Jamaica remains open for business.  The enhanced security measures in St. James have been put into action to ensure the continued safety of our residents and visitors.  I am pleased to report that individuals and groups have been enjoying their daily activities throughout the various resort regions, without issue.

As a destination, we have been fortunate to have very few negative incidents against visitors, which is borne out in the statistics and we believe the current proactive initiative will only serve to boost our record of safety and security.  Note that for 2017 we had in excess of four million visitors (2.3 million stopover and 1.9 million cruise visitors), with over 40 percent repeat rate.

We appreciate the great work you do in promoting and selling Jamaica and wish to laud your unwavering commitment.

It is our hope that you will continue to help us in getting the word out that all is well in Jamaica, even as we seek to maintain our reputation of providing a safe, secure and satisfying travel experience.

We stand ready to assist you should you have any questions.


Edmund Bartlett, M.P.
Minister of Tourism

A Celebration of Life in Tahiti

<iframe src=”” width=”560″ height=”315″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”></iframe>


In Tahitian, the word Heiva (hei meaning to assemble, and va meaning community places) refers to activities, pastimes, physical exercise, and festivals. Music, dancing, singing and sporting events have always held an important place in Polynesian communities. In ancient times, they were essential components of religious and political ceremonies. Dance was one of the most sophisticated and ritualized art forms performed in groups or individually.

In the 19th Century, Christian missionaries condemned these demonstrations that were described as an erotic form of debauchery. In 1819, King Pomare II legally forbade the practice. At that time, after being banished from public areas, dancing became a clandestine practice for the people.

In 1881, after a long struggle with England and Protestant missionaries, France annexed a large part of what is today French Polynesia. Bastille Day, France’s national holiday celebrated on July 14th, became symbolic for the Polynesians. On this one-day, France allowed sports and dancing in an effort to overcome the Anglo-Saxon influence and to satisfy Polynesians’ taste for festivities.

Traditional dance made a resurgence in 1881 after being severely restricted for several decades. That year, the first Heiva I Tahiti was organized and named Tiurai, meaning “July the month of festivities.”

In 1977, French Polynesia gained greater political autonomy from France. This political and cultural emancipation led authorities to organize the Heiva I Tahiti in June 1985, which replaced the public holiday festival of the Tiurai.

More than just a simple festival, Heiva I Tahiti has become the symbol of the Polynesian culture and an iconic event for a people proud of their heritage.

These performances highlight the drama of an opera and the distinct imprints of an ancestral tradition. The dances are unique creations, for which the dancers train for six months or more. Text music, choreography and costumes are based on a historical or legendary theme.

Live music and singing accompany the dancers. The orchestras are made up of five to fifty musicians using traditional instruments such as the nasal flute or “vivo,” made from a portion of bamboo, marine shells or “pu,” and more recently, the ukulele, a small Hawaiian guitar with soft tones.

The traditional singing competition accounts for another powerful portion of the Heiva I Tahiti. The melodies include a cappella in “reo ma’ohi” (Polynesian language), which express moments of joy and melancholy.

Since its creation, the Heiva I Tahiti, has also been a showcase for traditional sports and games. The traditional sporting events are based on ancient athletic activities and include; a stone lifting competition, a javelin- throwing event, outrigger canoe races, a copra competition, and a fruit carrying competition.
