Surfers Paradise in the Gold Coast of Australia is a city for tourists. Comprised of mostly bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels, and apartments, the city caters to all types of travelers. If you plan on visiting around November / December, know that the city tends to be taken over by schoolies - students on break who party non stop. This may not be the best time to visit if thats not what you're looking for, however, for some of you maybe it is?

Mandalay Bay Beach & Pool Review, Las Vegas

Mandalay Bay Beach & Wave Pool

When choosing your hotel in Las Vegas during the summer months, the pool often times becomes an important factor. The Mandalay Bay Beach and pool is nice; it's well rounded, but not the best around. Depending on what type of pool scene you're looking for, the Mandalay Bay pool is hit or miss. It's got a lazy river, a wave pool, a sand beach, a couple bars, a casino overlooking the pool, a wading pool, and a couple other smaller pools around the outside. If you're looking for a party scene, the Mandalay Bay pool is not so crazy, but it is what you make of it, you can certainly get your drink on and have fun. Cabanas are available, but probably not worth it.

How To Get From The U.S. To Cuba

If you’re a US resident trying to get to Cuba before it loses its communist charm, and you aren’t fortunate enough to have a visa approved by the US government, it still is relatively easy to get there. It is illegal and there are consequences if you get caught, but I don’t think catching tourists coming back from Cuba is high on a US Customs Agents list of things to bust people for. The general routes you can take are from the US to Mexico or the Bahamas, and then take a connecting flight to Havana. I went through Cancun, Mexico, so that is what my advice is based on.
