By

Cancun-JW-Marriott-Resort-and-Spa

Cancun is a must-see travel destination for many, and for good reason: great weather, beautiful beaches, and fantastic hotels and resorts. For those traveling without a budget, the fairly new JW Marriott is easily Cancun’s best hotel and resort. In fact, it has earned AAA’s coveted five-star diamond resort status.

The hotel boasts a comfortable 448 rooms and 74 suites; large enough to make it profitable to run with world class amenities, while small enough to provide great personalized service. The quality of the rooms are top notch, as is expected from any hotel baring the name JW Marriott. Each room features an oceanfront view, spacious private balconies, 32″ flat screen TV’s, and some of the more luxurious plush carpet we’ve ever seen. Oh, and world famous Revive bedding helps too.

If you want your travel time to be a quiet and relaxing time for you, a chatty or worse an annoying seatmate is your worst travel nightmare. Here are some subtle, simple tricks if you want to be exempted from the small chit chats while in transit:

No eye contact

Looking directly into another person’s eye is one to way to promote some bonding, a hint of wanting to communicate or even flirting. So if you want the peace and quiet during your flight or ride, do the exact opposite.

People try to connect with you because it is a social function that we naturally do. Some talk to you because they may be anxious during the flight or cruise.

Turn away slightly from your seatmate

Here are some of the places that only the most insane people will try to break into:

Svalbard Global Seed Vault

It is 2012, and for those who believe Armageddon might come soon, the few who will survive has this big vault in a mountain in Spitsbergen, 390 feet below ground, storing all hope for mankind. This vault houses about half a million samples of the plant species. It is about 620 miles from the North Pole and protected by miles of ocean. It is practically resistant to earthquake and any potential nuclear disaster that can wipe everything off the face of earth. It is also high enough that it is safe from flooding. The vaults are enclosed behind four steel doors and we heard that the keys to these doors are not under the doormat.

If you worship the sun, love the water, and just crazy for all the fun summer brings, then you might also be into the best summer drinks you can get hold of. We list down some of the best beach drinks that we know of while at the best beaches across the globe:

Caipirinha in Brazil

You will find caipirinha in any cafe or bar along the beaches of Brazil. It is made from cachaca (spirit made from sugarcane juice), sugar, and lime. This blend is quite easy to make as vendors along the beach can prepare them in no time. You can also find variations of the caipirinha like the caipifrutas which adds a fruit into the equation like kiwi, mango, passionfruit, or cashew fruit.
