New Obama admin regulations on Cuba to make travel easier to

Many Cubans welcome closer ties with U.S.

Washington (CNN) Americans will face fewer obstacles in traveling to Cuba under new regulations announced by the Obama administration on Thursday, continuing a promise to thaw relations with the country the President started last month.

While short of lifting the decades-old U.S. embargo on the island, a move that would require congressional approval, the administration’s new rules on travel and trade will likely herald a new era in ties between the two countries.

Under the softened regulations whose details were outlined in more detail Thursday, Americans will be able to visit Cuba without first seeking a license from the Treasury Department, so long as the travel meets certain criteria. The new regulations will take effect Friday, according to the U.S. Treasury.

President Barack Obama originally announced the change in U.S. policy on Cuba on Dec. 17, as part of a larger deal that secured the release of Alan Gross, an American government subcontractor who was imprisoned on the island for five years.

Cuban Americans traveling to see family members, American officials on government trips, journalists on assignment on the island as well as every day citizen visiting for educational, cultural, religious reasons will no longer need permission first.

The new regulations allow travel agents and airlines to book tickets for U.S. citizens to Cuba without a special license from the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control known as OFAC.

Americans traveling to the island will also be allowed to use credit cards, a restriction that complicated trips to Cuba in the past.

“Today’s announcement takes us one step closer to replacing out of date policies that were not working and puts in place a policy that helps promote political and economic freedom for the Cuban people,” Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said in a statement.

In unveiling the new regulations, the Obama administration revealed it is moving to establish a U.S. embassy in Havana, allowing American officials to make purchases that will revamp U.S. diplomatic facilities that already exist in the Cuban capital.

Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker is slated to visit Cuba later this year.

“Today’s actions, which are being taken in coordination with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, give legal effect to the historic policy changes that President Obama announced,” Pritzker said in a statement.

The administration’s rules still present challenges for Americans traveling to Cuba. U.S. citzens will only be allowed to import up to $100 in alcohol and tobacco products, under the regulations, setting a limit on the number of Cuban cigars Americans will be permitted to bring home.

Chris Chiames, Orbitz’s vice president of corporate affairs, says the travel booking site expects to have flights to Cuba, as well as hotel options, available to consumers in 2015.

“We’re working through how to turn that on quickly. It’s not going to be tomorrow,” he said, adding U.S. citizens should expect “travel sometime in 2015.”

In the short term, Chiames said it’s unlikely travelers will be able to fly on U.S. carriers. The first step appears to be giving consumers the ability to book tickets on international carriers like Air Canada, Aeromexico. Travelers could fly from the U.S. to cities in Canada and Mexico, for example, and then make connections to Havana.

Chiames said U.S. carriers are still working through DOT to determine how quickly they will be able to offer service from American cities.

Republicans have blasted Obama’s move to thaw decades-old tensions with Cuba. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) said Thursday that the new policies will have the effect of “enriching a tyrant” without benefiting Cubans.

“This is a windfall for the Castro regime that will be used to fund its repression against Cubans, as well as its activities against U.S. national interests in Latin America and beyond,” he said. “Given existing U.S. laws about our Cuba policy, this slew of regulations leave at least one major question President Obama and his administration have failed to answer so far: what legal authority does he have to enrich the Castro regime in these ways?”

The Guide to Drug Rehab Centers – Options, Finances and Expert


#

Drug Rehab Guides for Addiction Mental Health

What kind of questions do you need to ask to find the right drug rehab for you?

There are more than 14,500 specialized drug rehab centers in the United States alone. Families searching for care for someone in need have plenty of options, but they will need to ask in-depth questions about the facility s focus, treatment options, accreditation, and cost in order to make an informed choice. Understanding treatment options and interviewing providers can be time-consuming, but the work could help the family settle on the right provider, at the right price, for a person in need.

I n a study of addiction habits all around the world, published in the online journal PLOS Medicine , the United States took the top spot in terms of the use of illicit drugs like cocaine. In this country, both the use and abuse of substances are widespread. As a result, there are hundreds of drug and alcohol rehab centers people can utilize when their use spins out of control and develops into an addiction.The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that there are more than 14,500 specialized drug rehab centers in the United States. There are many other providers in private practice that offer help to people with addictions. Nonprofit support groups are available, too, that can assist people who do not want to get formal professional help.

If you are searching for a drug rehab center for yourself or for someone you love, this is all wonderful news. It is clear that you have options available, and there is bound to be a provider out there that can assist you or your family with the addiction problems you face. But which option should you choose? And more importantly, how can you be sure that the option you do choose is the right one?

This guide can help. Here, we will detail the options open to you, along with important questions you can ask before you settle on a specific provider.

Free Cost Assessment

The Breakdown in Cost

A s you are deciding how you might choose to pay for care, it could be worthwhile to understand how much specific aspects of care cost. You could, in theory, use this information to help you plan. You might pay for some aspects of care yourself, for example, while leaving other aspects up to insurance.

According to Kristy Bryant at American Addiction Centers, these are a few cost ranges for services people might need in rehab:

  • Intervention: $2,500 plus expenses
  • Supervised medical detox: $500-650 per day (private pay rate)
  • Partial hospitalization: $350-450 per day (private pay rate)
  • Inpatient care in a facility: $500-650 per day (private pay rate)
  • Intensive outpatient care: $250-350 per day
  • Sober living: $1,500-2,500 per month

That means families in dire financial straits might pay less than this amount for the help required, but not all facilities offer this service.

Help Is Available

I f you are looking for assistance with a very real and very persistent addiction problem that is touching your family, you do not have to do the work alone. Most providers are adept at explaining rehab options, including costs, so you can understand just how much you will need to pay and how the program will work. If you do choose to use insurance, representatives can work with the rehab provider on preauthorization and other paperwork, so you will not have issues to handle when you are working to recover.Do not let cost stand in the way of a fight against addiction. The options outlined here could make your rehab journey affordable and attainable. As always, we are here to answer any questions you may have about how rehab works and why you might benefit.

Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) Information

The CCAP program can subsidize the cost of child care for families that are residents of Rhode Island. CCAP is available for children who are US citizens or legal residents and under age 13. The age can be extended to 18 if the child has special needs.

Child Care Assistance is available to:

  • Low income families who meet income guidelines and are working a minimum of 20 hours per week at or above Rhode Island’s minimum wage.
  • Families participating in training, apprenticeship, internship, on-the-job training, work experience, work immersion sponsored by the Governor s Workforce Board, who need child care in order to take part in these job readiness/training opportunities.
  • Families participating in the RI Works program.
  • Pregnant/Parenting Teens participating in DHS Youth Success program.

CCAP is also temporarily available to families through the following Pilot Program

  • Transitional Child Care Pilot (October 1, 2013 – September 30, 2017)

Allows families already participating in the CCAP program to remain eligible for the subsidy program if their income increases and does not exceed 225% of the federal poverty level.

Choosing a Child Care Provider

Families that qualify for the CCAP program can choose their own child care provider. The CCAP program will reimburse authorized child care providers up to a certain amount. Most eligible families share in the cost of care, called a co-payment, based on their income, family size and the number of children receiving child care subsidies. This fee is paid directly to the child care provider.

Parents can select the child care provider of their choice and, if necessary, may use more than one provider to meet their child care needs so long as the hours of care do not overlap. Options for child care include:

  • A DCYF licensed child care center or before/after-school program
  • A DCYF licensed family child care home
  • A license-exempt provider (such as a family member) that has received approval from DHS

New York s DWI Guide #nys #dwi, #nyc #dui, #dwai #drugs,


#

What is the difference between the terms DWI, DWAI, DWI, OUI, etc.

These terms are all acronyms that refer to the crime commonly known as drunk driving. Different states have different names for the crime. For example, in Oregon, the term driving under the influence of an intoxicant or DUII is used; Massachusetts and Maine call the charge operating under the influence or OUI; Florida, Connecticut and numerous other states use the term driving under the influence or DUI.

Like many states, New York State law uses the terms driving while intoxicated(DWI) and aggravated driving while intoxicated (Aggravated DWI). New York also has a separate charge known as driving while ability impaired or DWAI. [Colorado is the only other state that uses the term DWAI.] More on those terms below.

I just got arrested for a State of New York DWI / DWAI charge. What happens now?

ISSUE ONE: The New York Implied Consent Proceeding: Your New York drivers license (or your right to drive in New York if you re not a New York licensed driver) was most likely revoked for a year or more if you refused a chemical (breath) test. You also face a $500 civil penalty. Read your paperwork carefully. It may be in your interest to challenge this revocation at a DMV hearing. Speak to your New York DWI hearing for more information.

ISSUE TWO: The New York Aggravated DWI / DWI / DWAI Case: Separate from the implied consent license revocation proceeding is the charge for DWAI, DWI, or Aggravated DWI. You were probably charged with one of the following offenses:

Driving while ability impaired (DWAI). Under New York law, it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while your ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired by the consumption of alcohol. This offense is most commonly seen when a driver s BAC is between 0.05 and 0.07 percent.

Driving while intoxicated; per se (Per Se DWI). Under New York law, it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while you have 0.08 percent or more by weight of alcohol in your blood as shown by chemical analysis of your blood, breath, urine or saliva.

Aggravated driving while intoxicated; per se (Aggravated DWI). Under New York law, it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while you have 0.18 percent or more by weight of alcohol in your blood as shown by chemical analysis of your blood, breath, urine or saliva.

Aggravated driving while intoxicated; child in car (Aggravated DWI). Under New York law it is unlawful to driving while intoxicated with a child under 15 years of age in your vehicle.

Driving while intoxicated (DWI). Under New York law, it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while in an intoxicated condition.

Driving while ability impaired by drugs. Under New York law, it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while your ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired by the use of a drug.

Driving while ability impaired by the combined influence of drugs or of alcohol and any drug or drugs. Under New York law, it is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle while your ability to operate a motor vehicle is impaired by the combined influence of drugs or of alcohol and any drug or drugs.

Important: The implied consent proceeding and the criminal DWI / DWAI case are completely separate from one another.

Will my New York drivers license be revoked / suspended?

RELATED TO ISSUE ONE ABOVE: Your New York drivers license (or your right to drive in New York state if you do not have a valid New York license) may be revoked under implied consent law for refusing a chemical test. New York s implied consent law does not suspend or revoke a driver s license if they fail a breath or blood test (though many other states do so).

RELATED TO ISSUE TWO ABOVE: If you are convicted of the DWI or Aggravated DWI charge. you will also lose your license (or your right to drive in New York if you don t have a valid New York license) for a six months or more.

A DWAI conviction will also result in a suspension or revocation of your license.

Keep in mind that these conviction-based revocations are separate and distinct from the implied consent revocation. Talk to your NY DWI lawyer for possible suspension and revocation lengths for your situation.

Also keep in mind that your license can be suspended or revoked for a variety of reasons unrelated to a DWI / DWAI arrest e.g. excessive tickets, a hit and run conviction, etc.

What happens if I get caught driving while my license is suspended / revoked?

Aggravated unlicensed operation (AUO) of a motor vehicle should be avoided as it is a new crime. Most commonly, you ll face the charge of aggravated unlicensed operation in the second degree. This charge is common after an alcohol related suspension / revocation. Penalties include fines and possible jail time.

If you re on probation for a DWI / DWAI when you are arrested for unlicensed operation, you also face a probation violation hearing.

If you re driving while intoxicated and driving after a revocation, you may face a charge of AUO in the first degree. This is a felony charge.

I really need to drive. Will I be able to get a NY restricted / occupational / conditional permit / conditional / hardship license?

If you’re serving a revocation, for a first DWI / DWAI conviction and you participate in the Drinking Driver Program (DDP), you may be able to obtain a conditional license. If you receive a New York conditional license, it is valid to drive only:

  • to and from work;
  • on the job (if driving is part of your job);
  • to and from a class at an accredited school, college, or university;
  • to transport your child to and from child care or school if necessary to maintain your employment;
  • to and from Drinking Driver Program classes and required evaluation or treatment;
  • to and from a state or county motor vehicle office for business related to your conditional license;
  • to and from court required probation activities;
  • to and from medical treatment for you or a family member;
  • during an additional three hour period each week .

The State of New York does not issue conditional licenses to drive commercial motor vehicles.

What is the New York State Drinking Driver Program (DDP)?

The Drinking Driver Program (DDP) is a government program designed to reduce recidivism among persons convicted of DWI. During the introductory phase of the program, participants discuss the social, medical, legal, and driver safety problems caused by alcohol and other drug abuse. The program includes classroom education, screening, and sometimes evaluation and treatment.

A DDP participant must attend seven weekly classroom sessions. Each session lasts two to three hours. If you satisfactorily complete the classroom sessions, your involvement in the DDP ends unless the program refers you for a formal evaluation and subsequent treatment. This referral may result from:

  • the results of a written self assessment;
  • two or more alcohol or drug-related driving convictions within the past 10 years;
  • an arrest for an alcohol or drug-related driving offense while enrolled in the DDP;
  • attending class under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
  • a request by the student for help with a substance abuse problem, or an admission that the student is currently in treatment;

If you are referred for evaluation, you may choose a treatment provider from a list supplied by the DDP. [Note: If you are not satisfied with the results of the evaluation, you may contact the DDP director and request a second evaluation. However, you must accept the findings of the second evaluation.]

After the evaluation, you may be required to complete a substance abuse treatment program. If you fail to complete required evaluation and treatment, you will be dropped from the DDP and your conditional license will be revoked.

You will receive a Notice of Completion when you have completed all the requirements of the DDP. A copy of your completion notice will be sent to the NYS DMV. Depending on your license status and driving record, your license will be restored or you will be eligible to apply for a new drivers license.

Is a DWI offense in New York a misdemeanor or felony offense?

In New York state, a DWI is usually a misdemeanor crime. However, if you have a prior DWI offense in the past 5 – 10 years, the offense may be a felony crime. Also, getting a DWI with a child under 15 years of age in the car results in a felony offense under Leandra s law. Refer to the table below for more information.

The Rock Island Armory Guns #1911,m1911,1911a1,m1911a1,chuck #taylor,pistol,colt,.45 #acp,rock #island #armory #m1911


#

The RIA .45 – a solid performer

I am a 1911 fan, a 1911 man, and never shall this change. The 1911 has taken game for the table, fed the poor, and saved my life on more than one occasion. I fought administrators for the right to carry cocked and locked and ready to rock and after retirement from police work still keep a 1911 or two close at hand. Keep your combat tupperware, please.

I reach for a man’s gun. In modern times, some of us long for a stock 1911 pistol. Oh, this is a perversity of human nature. When all we had were 1911 s we chopped them up, fitting sights into neat little dovetails, chopping the frame to put in beavertails big enough to paddle through a creek with and we also checkered the living demons out of every inch of frame space. Today, we ooh and ahh over any 1911 or Series 70 that has somehow survived this great bath of steel cutting and keep it original. Go figure, but be careful–you’ll end up nutty as a large dump rodent.

A real 1911, not alloyed with any bells and whistles

That being said, I have recently tested two 1911s that are pure GI. They are made in the Philippines but are more loyal to the 1911 template than most anything made in the good old USA. The Filipinos have been good allies and have a respectable handgun heritage. Many a Japanese soldier’s last sight was a Filipino Guerilla aiming a 1911 at him. So, if someone has to make a 1911 clone let them do it if they can do it well. In my opinion, they have succeeded admirably.

The handguns are marketed in America under the name Rock Island Armory. That is fine, they have to have a name. The guns are stock GI – with one difference we will inspect later — and they work about as well as GI guns. With an exception. They seem more tightly fitted. Well, most of the GI guns we have examined are pretty well worn. Few of us have had the pleasure of firing an almost new Colt 1911A1 of any type. Therefore, a value judgment is difficult. After all, look at all of the old well worn Mausers and Lee Enfields on this shore. They are pretty sloppy but find one new out of the crate and you will be surprised how truly smooth and accurate they are. The same with a GI .45. Where will you find a GI .45 of any type?

The RIA .45 is standard 1911A1, perhaps the trigger is a bit long, and that’s it. There is no firing pin or drop safety. The gun features the same low small GI sights we all knew and could not wait to get rid of it. But, when properly lined up, they are precise. The gun rattles just a little when shook. That doesn’t matter. As long as the locking lugs and the barrel bushing are fitted properly, the gun will shoot well. This is a close range pistol, a gun for trench fighting or for clearing uglies from your domicile in the wee hours of the morning. That is what the 1911 was made for. If you can’t see the sights, well, it sets in the hand very well for body position aiming. And delivers. The RIA gun is finished in a kind of phosphate finish. I found when the inevitable scratches came, I could squirt Hoppes gun oil on the surface and really polish it and the scratches seemed to go away. That’s nice, but this is not an attractive finish. It is functional and well done, which is what counts. I found a minimum of tool marks and good fit of all parts. The controls worked with a certain crispness. When working the slide, the link felt right and the locking lugs seemed to roll into place. Someone with knowledge of the 1911 tribe has had their hands on the gun in making this 1911. I like that. The grips are an attractive slab of dense wood, nicer than anything Uncle Sam ever put on his 1911s, so that is a bonus. The magazine is a quality eight round unit. That’s ok too, as it worked. I have seen some RIA guns with seven rounds boxes, but they all work so that is fine.

1911s like a break in period so I was prepared for my pistol to stutter through the first one hundred rounds and then perform well. I was wrong, and I have noticed this trend in many modern 1911s. They no longer require a break in except in the most expensive, tightly fitted guns. It seems the public wants to fire fifty rounds and put the gun in the dresser drawer.

With Pro Load ammunition and Wilson Combat magazines, this one is a good performer

SIGs and Glocks don’t require break in. Well, it works for me. Flat spots and the occasional too long link are to be expected from a quality 1911. Still, I didn’t see any problem. I loaded my first two hundred rounds with Winchester’s 230 grain bullet over a stiff charge of #231 powder. New Starline cases and a Winchester primer jolted the bullet to a full 850 fps. I commenced by firing at rocks and limbs at the range, then rapid fire at silhouette targets at seven, ten, and fifteen yards. I am glad I had a good supply of Wilson Combat magazines on hand! One hundred rounds went by in a few minutes. No failures to feed, chamber, fire or eject. Sure, I make good ammo but the absence of a break in jam is notable. I also fired a quantity of factory new Pro Load ammunition. The gun worked, and gave solid three inch 25 yard groups when I did my part.

Recently, the big news is a .38 Super version of the RIA gun. I received one of the first six guns in the country. It is a bit different from a standard 1911 in that this .38 Super features an enlarged ejection port, nicely scalloped. That is a good thing. The Super did require a break-in period, but after a few hundred rounds of Zero’s high quality reloads settled in for good function. Zero is the only manufacturer I know of that offers quality remanufactured loads in .38 Super caliber. That is a good thing! The original magazine did not function as I would have liked, so I ordered a number of high quality magazines from Metalform, Incorporated. Perfect function followed. In fact, the break in malfunctions may have been attributable to the magazines. The gun has a lot of power.

Author found the .38 Super pistol very pleasing. Note Caspian grips

The Super was introduced to give cops a better cartridge for use against light cover and vehicles. It does just that, with 130 grains at 1,300 fps being the operative number. Some modern loads do even better. After firing a few hundred rounds, I had the measure of this pistol. It is a good gun, very good. Accuracy was about on the par with the .45, but the .38 is easier to shoot. That does not mean it is a wimp load. Cor-Bon’s 115 grain JHP broke well over 1,400 fps. The sights were well regulated for the .38 Super, and function was good. I added a set of Caspian target stocks after a week or so, and found them a good addition to the handgun. I like the Super very much. I still rely on my .45, and I will tell you frankly I have never shot anything living with the .38 Super. But I have used Magnum loads in the .357 revolver with excellent effect. The Super is pretty close.

I am carrying my Super in a slick paddle from Gunleather, Inc, of Forth Worth, Texas. It just doesn’t get any better on the hip that this! Ten quick rounds, ten accurate rounds, and the gun leaps into the hand from a top flight rig. Here is a powerful cartridge on the 1911 format that equals or exceeds the .357 SIG. Controllable power? You bet. The .38 Super RIA gun is currently available form the Dealer Warehouse, a showcase advertiser at Shotgun News. I have had the best dealings with this company. If you are tired of the same old format and guns that don’t look like a GI .45, the gun we all know and love, check out the RIA guns. They are excellent performers.

This time, the gun is wearing grips by Esmeralda and is carried in a Gunleather, Inc holster. Enough to melt the heart of any 1911 fan.

[Editor s Note: Since this article was posted in January of 2004, I have received some problem reports on the RIA pistols. These have included reliability issues, heavy triggers and difficulty in obtaining replacement parts or support from the manufacturer. I have also received many letters from satisfied owners who appreciate the value represented by these guns. It should also be noted that I have received problem reports on on brands that cost much more. When you are paying $350 for a 1911 you can t expect to get an Ed Brown custom and the factory support of Smith Wesson. If you want to get into M1911 pistols without taking on a second mortgage, and especially if you know something about them already, enough to do a fluff and buff and some basic tune-up. the RIA pistols can be a very interesting and economical option.]

INNOVATORS

University Orthopedics directs many clinical research efforts intended to innovate new orthopedic surgery techniques; new surgical implant devices that improve the success of various procedures; and new ways to prevent orthopedic injury.

TEACHERS

The physicians at University Orthopedics believe that just as they benefited from the educational training they received early on in their careers, they should return the expertise they gain through private practice by educating those coming out of medical schools who in turn take their expertise into the community.

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Mark Palumbo. I injured my back at work, had some disc issues with horrible pain to the point I could barely walk. When other doctors said I would not ever be able to work my very physical job again, Dr. Palumbo proved them wrong. I have been back to work for over a year now.”

“I broke my left humerus in September 2013, I saw Dr. Got and he operated on me in October, it was a smooth recovery for me with the great team he had. I was back to work and back in the gym in four months. I would recommend anyone who experiences any bone break to go see Dr. Got.”

Dr. Bliss is awesome. I’m so grateful to have a doctor who cares about me. He listens and is genuinely concerned about my injury. The facility is well kept and staff is wonderful. I’d recommend them in a heartbeat.”

Amazing doctors, physical therapists, and facilities. The doctors are all very well educated and their staff are friendly as well. They also do a very good job of matching their patients to the physical therapists both in specialty and personality.”

Long Island Auto Insurance

Long Island auto insurance can be confusing. Everywhere you look, car insurance company after car insurance company boasts about how they are offering all types of discounts on car insurance quotes. Unfortunately, the one vital piece of information they never reveal is: What was the original quote? Without this essential piece of information, it’s hard to know what your car insurance savings will really be. So, since there are scores of auto insurance companies in New York, which LI auto insurance company do you choose to insure your vehicle? If you limit yourself to the few heavily advertised auto insurance companies you see on TV, you could be throwing away a ton of money on auto insurance premium when you do not have to.

    Voucher Reviews

    GRANDE ISLAND – INDOCHINA STRINGS – METRODEAL voucher

    Posted by La Vie Wednesday, October 24, 2012

    BEWARE – BIG HEADACHE.

    EDIT:

    As of writing today: April 29, 2014. I have received a note saying that this post was taken down due to a DMCA complaint i.e. a copyright infringement. For crying out loud, I have written this based on my experience and I have all the email conversations from Indochina Strings saved as proof that this is what happened. INDOCHINA STRINGS, get your act together! If you do not want a bad review then offer better service.

    I bought 4 vouchers from Metrodeal to go to Grande Island Resort Subic courtesy of Indochina Strings. I was really excited that time since I have not visited Subic for several years alrready and thought it was a great to spend a night in Grande Island.

    It costed me PHP1250 for each Metrodeal voucher. The travel agency Indochina Strings staff is simply incompetent. I do not want to use such a word but I cannot find a better way of saying it.

    I followed Indochina’s rules of booking. I went to the website, put on the Metrodeal voucher numbers and waited for a reply. After one day, I received a reply asking when I bought the voucher from Metrodeal. I replied and gave the exact date. I believe it was wrong of me to assume that if Indochina will be given the Metrodeal voucher number they will know all the data associated to it. It seems that it is not the case or perhaps Indochina’s employee is just too lazy to look it up.

    Anyway, Jane of Indochina replied to me and said to make another email and send it to a different email address because it is confusing for them. They said that I sent an email for Grande Island Low Season vouchers. I did this as I just want it to be over. I made the email, sent it to Indochina Strings and waited for a reply. I thought that since they asked me to send it to a DIFFERENT email address, that I will be assisted by somebody else. Surprise again! No, it’s same ole Jane who replied to me and said that they have to contact the Grande Island Resort staff first to book it for the date I requested. It was March back then and I was booking for April. After two more follow up phone calls and two emails, Jane of Indochina Strings told me that the date I requested is not available because I booked a peak season date. Err. So in the end, I did the right thing when I sent the booking on the first email that I sent! I had to think of another date to use my Metrodeal vouchers! Indochina Strings is just horrible! I was already thinking that I got scammed by Metrodeal when I bought the Grande Island voucher.

    Several weeks more passed and I still did not receive an email from Indochina Strings that my Grande Island vacation is confirmed. In the end, I called Grande Island Resort and informed them of my situation. I was even a little mad at them because Indochina Strings girl Jane said in the email that the Grande Island has not confirmed my Metrodeal voucher yet so they cannot send me a confirmation. Another surprise! The girl I spoke to in the reservations of Grande Island had no idea. She said that they reply immediately to any booking. They have not received any email from Indochina Strings. I asked if the date I requested is available and they said yes! I told her to reserve that for me and I will just inform Indochina about it. I also asked her to inform Indochina about it. I sent another email telling Jane that I already did her job and booked the reservation myself and that they only have confirm it on their side.

    The next day, I FINALLY received a confirmation of my Grande Island tour from Indochina Strings.

    I will just make another post how’s the Grande Island Resort.

    Puerto Rico Travel: 5 Ways To Make The Island A Cheap

    Puerto Rico Travel: 5 Ways To Make The Island A Cheap Getaway (PHOTOS)

    BEN FOX

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — There may have been a time when Puerto Rico was a cheap getaway but those days are long gone. Puerto Rico is heavily dependent on imported goods and fuel and that’s reflected in prices from a taxi ride from the airport to the mojito at your hotel. And it is, after all, the Caribbean, where tourists should expect eye-popping bills in season. A six-star hotel that opened recently in Dorado, east of San Juan, advertised rates starting at $1,500 a night, ranging up to nearly $5,000. There are, of course, cheaper options. There are also things to do that don’t cost anything at all. Here are five of them:

    BEACHES

    It’s an island about the size of Connecticut so there are many beaches, about 300 according to some estimates. In the capital, Isla Verde Beach is good for swimming and lolling on soft sand, groomed daily. Playita del Condado is a protected cove that is ideal for young kids and a surprisingly good place to snorkel for being in the middle of San Juan.

    Things get much better outside the capital. Crash Boat, about an hour west of San Juan, is great for swimming and snorkeling. Farther west in the west coast town of Rincon is Maria’s, which has great surf. Also recommended are the beaches along the entrance to the Guanica Dry Forest Reserve as well as Seven Seas in the east coast town of Fajardo. A good tip for all Puerto Rican beaches is to go early in the morning when the water is calm and there are no crowds. Otherwise, go to Vieques, which has spectacular beaches and that are secluded even in the high season.

    EL YUNQUE

    About a half-hour drive from San Juan, thanks to a relatively new toll road, is an actual tropical rain forest, the only one that is part of the U.S. forest system. El Yunque National Forest is a cool oasis on a hot day. The well-maintained trails are often shrouded in misty clouds and you can cool off in a waterfall or a river pool along the relatively easy Big Tree Trail.

    EL MORRO

    There’s an entrance fee to enter the Castillo San Felipe del Morro, but the best way to enjoy this U.S. National Historic Site requires no money at all. The fort that towers over San Juan Bay, known universally as just “El Morro,” is a great place to stroll, especially at sunset. The massive rolling expanse of grass at the foot of the fort has spectacular views in any direction. It’s a popular place to picnic and fly a kite, sold by nearby street vendors.

    OLD SAN JUAN

    At the foot of El Morro is the old city, the colonial heart of San Juan. In recent years, Old San Juan has been on an upswing; its cobblestone streets are cleaner and livelier. New stores, restaurants and coffee shops have opened and many of the old homes have been restored. It’s a working city, home to the governor’s office and mansion said to be the oldest in the western hemisphere as well as other government offices and an increasing number of professional firms. It’s also become an increasingly busy cruise ship port and outlet and luxury goods shops have proliferated in response.

    MUSIC AND SALSA

    A good place to catch free live music several nights a week is the Plaza Mercado, a fruit and vegetable market in Santurce, a neighborhood that is also home to what are considered some of the best restaurants in Puerto Rico. The lobby of the El San Juan in Isla Verde usually has live music and dancing on weekends. The bar of course isn’t free but there’s no charge to get in. The dancers can be intimidatingly good so the less-skilled may be content just to watch the scene. A number of restaurants and hotels also regularly advertise free salsa lessons.

    We also boast of an amazing coral reef system. the second largest in the world and this hemisphere’s longest, running offshore, and many cayes (islands of coral sand) are surrounded by astounding reefs to snorkle or scuba dive. The reef lies one-half mile east of the Ambergris Caye shoreline and runs the entire 25 mile length of the island (Maps ). This has made San Pedro Town the dive and water sports capital of our country as well as Central America. The Great Blue Hole. Turneffe Islands. Shark Ray Alley. Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Mexico Rocks. Lighthouse Reef. and many other diving areas are all only a short boat ride away from this coconut palm lined island.

    This area is home to a delightful variety of plant and animal life. With a large percentage of the country’s land under protection, the hundreds of species of birds. exotic tropical plants, monkeys, manatee, crocodiles, and thousands of colorful fish thrive and are a highlight of any vacation.

    But truly our people are the most memorable part. The mix of ten different cultures include East Indian, Garifuna, Mestizo, Maya, Mennonites, and Creole. They will welcome you, and their wonderful relaxed hospitality will allow you to relax and enjoy your time here.

    Come and explore our tropical wonderland. Walk the beaches, learn our history, talk with our people, buy a home or invest in real estate property. have your wedding or honeymoon, or enjoy your retirement in our country. Please visit our tours page or our list of businesses to get started.

    Here is a place where you can really relax, there is nothing that you can do to change anything. things will happen eventually, so you may as well just sit back and enjoy the view! Here is why we love Belize!
