Insulated totes for your beach vacation

Insulated totes are a must for any beach vacation, but strangely enough, a lot of vacation rentals do not provide them, leaving you to bring your own. And these days, with luggage space almost as valuable as real estate, you hate to put one more item on your packing list. Insulated coolers make great carry on luggage. They are padded so you can safely carry computers and cameras, and they have a lot of space for travel extras like books, magazines and snacks. If you are traveling with an...

This little Riviera Maya seaside town has changed very little throughout the years. I hope it retains its quaint quality on this ever changing coast. Check out some getaways located on Akumal Bay.
