i mean i refuse to go to Mexico....people can refuse to travel to different locales.
Mexico is scary and I live fairly close to the border.  I have a lot of coworkers who tell stories of family members kidnapped and killed.  It's not even surprising anymore.  I wanted to go to Monterrey but ermm....no.

A friend of mine just got back from Dubai and he liked the first couple of days. He called it an upscale Las Vegas. After shopping and eating there isn't much else to do.

mexico? you can go to baja, tijuana, cozumel, and cancun and not feel like you even left the country. in fact it's quite boring. looks like a blend of la and miami.

i feel the same way about ochos rios, jamaica.

you guys need to get out more.

i've just blacked out the whole country in terms of vacationing.  there's a whole big world out there...not missing out by skipping Mexico. i've also never had the urge to go to Jamaica

No offense to anyone here, but clearly BHM is not the place for travel advice outside of the US. How can people who either haven't been where you want to go, know very little about it, and/or have no intention of ever going give you advice on said place? Try asking people on TripAdvisor or other travel sites. You are more likely to get more useful feedback. Good luck OP.

I heard 3 star hotels are like 4 star in the US.

What to do outside of shopping?


My mom is retiring from nursing in April and my birthday is in April so I'd like to do a retreat for the both of us.

Please share your experiences and thoughts.
 
Good resources:
 
 
 
Try searching through other travel guides (online and offline) outside of BHM to get extensive reviews and places of recommendation. Some general advice when visiting:
 
- Try to gain experiences that are unique that country (If I go to another country, I want to experience things- their food, places, culture, etc- that I can NOT experience in America. I don't understand why ppl go to different countries only to try American food - McD's, etc. Try their souqs, desert/safari surfing,  camel rides, visit landmarks, mosques, shopping malls, etc ).
 
-When visiting any place, read up on the customs and laws of that land. Learn what is appropiate and what isn't. This applies to anyone visiting any country, whether its somewhere in the Middle East or a country Europe.
