    Travel Today - The One&Only Palmilla

    in Travel

    This week's episode of Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from The One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico. After being hit by Hurricane Odile in September 2014, Los Cabos was badly damaged. Like many other properties, the One&Only Palmilla suffered major wounds and had to close for a massive recovery and rebuilding effort. But now it’s back, and some would say, better than ever.


    The resort’s staff pulled together as a community in one of the stronger examples of a public/private partnership. Arnie Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of Travel Weekly, talks about disaster tourism and why now is the time to go to Los Cabos. Then the President of the Los Cabos Humane Society, Aida Trujillo, talks about animal displacement after the storm and how visitors can help…including international pet adoption! (Hint—you get to fly your new pet home…for free!). All of this and more on this week's Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from The One&Only Palmilla.

    Travel the World: Visiting Belize and the rich Mayan culture

    in Travel

    Tonight on the CommDiginews Hour Travel the World we continue our tour of Central America with a tour of Belize. Geographically situated South of Mexico with Guatemala to the West and South, Belize is the only country in Central America whose official language is English.


    The Mayan civilization dates to about 1500 BC and thrived until about 900 AD before it suddenly disappered; Modern day Belize is formerly known as British Honduras, gaining its independence in 1981. The influence of the British on the schools and the world feel of this tiny county combined with the depth of the Mayan culture creates a diverse community wiht many cultures, including a strong Amish influence.


    Today the Mayan way of life is still strong as Mayan's work to keep their historical places and culture survive. Descendants of the Maya still have a rich presence and  thrive primarily as farmers in the region, while many of the youth are found in tourism as docents at historical sites, the many pyramids that still exist, the largest being Lamanai in the Northeast of the country.


    Join us as we Travel the World, tonight to Central America and Belize.

    Travel the World: Visiting Luxury in Turks & Caicos at the Sands at Grace Bay

    in Travel

    Travel to Providenciales, Turks & Caicos with Travel The World on the Communities Digital News Hour.


    Old Man Winter hit the east coast of the U.S. with a vengeance this winter, which means the Caribbean beckons. The Turks & Caicos are within easy reach from the U.S., especially the Atlantic coast, and the Sands at Grace Bay is an ideal getaway to escape the common cold.


    No imagination is required to see how this lovely 114-suite resort in the up-and-coming Turks & Caicos Islands derives its name. From the moment you cast your eyes upon the seemingly endless expanse of powdery white beach that seeps gently into crystal-clear turquoise and ultra-marine waters, you are beguiled by timeless rhythms that wash over you and cast your fate to the winds.


    The Turks & Caicos are situated in the British West Indies south of the Bahamas and north of the Dominican Republic. The archipelago of 41 islands and cays is less than 600 miles from Miami and is accessible by air from Florida in about 80 minute

    Pets have never been more pampered and spoiled in history than now. Boutiques, Doggy Daycare, Pet Clothes, Boutique pet food, and owners leaving millions to their 4 legged loved ones is all the rage.  So why not travel with your trusty companion.  They deserve a vacation as well.  If you are traveling with the one you love then for a lot of us that may mean our loving cat or dog.

    This is valentines month which is the day to show your loved ones you care, that means Vido as well.  Listen for travel tips on flying or driving with your pets, pet friendly hotels, database on animal import requirements, and cool websites to help you make the right choice.

    in Travel

    This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from The Athenaeum in London. Situated just steps away from St. James Park, this family-owned establishment is one of Peter’s favorites.

We pay tribute to Sally this week, as we’re joined by Tim Arthur, CEO of Time Out, who gives some of his off-the-brochure secrets for visiting London.


    Also joining us is London travel writer and U.S. expat Amy Laughinghouse who talks about the best walking tours in London. All of this and more when Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Athenaeum in London.
