Tripadvisor has dubbed the once sleepy fishing village of Playa del Carmen “a Riviera Maya destination.”

We’re passionate about Portugal and we’re even more fanatical that Funchal made it into Tripadvisor’s Top 10 Spring Destinations.

The historic city, established in the 1500s, is the capital of the Madeira Archipelago.
