Today's Travel Tip Tuesday couldn't have come at a better time. Nothing screams SUMMER like a chilled glass of wine or a margarita on the rocks!
Speaking of wine & tequila...did you know that many all-inclusive resorts have a sommelier on property? A wine sommelier is a knowledgeable wine professional who is highly trained in the pairing of wine with food. Many fine restaurants feature a sommelier who is specialized in all aspects of wine and wine tasting. Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta actually offers a unique tequila sommelier.

This is one you're going to want to remember!
The Mobile Passport App allows you to fly through Customs (no pun intended), by electronically submitting your passport and trip information, and bypassing the regular Customs line.
Download the [free] app and set up your profile by answering a few questions. Then, once you are at your "port of entry, connect to Wifi, and submit your data. Follow the "Mobile Passport Control" signs, present your passport, scan the Customs barcode on your app, and you're on your way!
Mobile Passport Control is now available in 22 airports and 1 cruise port.
Did you know that some countries require your passport to be valid 6 months after travel? These countries will deny entry if your passport does not meet their validity criteria.
Make sure you know the rules before traveling internationally!
Here are the current "rules" for some of our most common destinations:
Mexico - Passport must be valid at time of entry
Dominican Republic - Passport must be valid at time of entry
Jamaica - Passport must be valid at time of entry & exit
Bahamas - Passport must be valid at time of entry
Tahiti - 3 months
St. Lucia - Passport must have 6 month validity at entry
Grenada - 6 months beyond the date of entry
Costa Rica - Passport must be valid for the length of stay
Turks & Caicos - Passport must be valid for the duration of stay
Please note that validity requirements may change at any time and without notice, which is why we always suggest that your passport be valid at least 6 months after you return.
