No, Canada is the price for the car, not per person. USA charges that price for a car that can hold 3 people. Once you have 4 people they charge more, presumably because they're giving you an SUV.
they basically end up being around the same price for 3 people. I noticed Canada transfers has larger vans, also if you pay in CAD it usually ends up being a little cheaper as well.

Thoughts on new Mordechai Shapiro?
I listened to it a few times, sounded like one long Mordechai Schapiro track  ???

Does Chabad include hot plates for Shabbas food delivery?
no.

Was in Mayacoba recently (deff would reccomend the Banyan tree on so many levels) order shabbos food from both Chabads, was quite impressed.

After listening to some sefira albums, I feel a need to reiterate a rant I once had
You have my vote!

Anyone know if there any other kosher delivery option in Playa Del Carmin other then kosherrivieramaya.com?

They will usually do a cash upgrade to turquoise IME between $50-100 a night.
Good to know, you can do prior or only at the hotel?

If i reserve with points how can i get the turquoise tower?
When I went they weren't taking Hyatt points. so I ended up booking with UR on the Chase reserve, they were also running a 40% off on top of that.
can you give more details?
It's way nicer then the rest of resort, it's adults only with lot more perks and such as you own private butler, access to the infinity pool, hot tub on your porch to name a few. we had a sky room so the views were to kill for.

trying to go to Ziva for a week in July. Do I need to be in the club for free breakfast? Is there a way to get in without status, using a reg 25k rezzy? SHould I book via CSR and somehow get an upgrade using some more points?
Not sure what your situation is, but if you can get in the Turquoise tower there it's a whole different level! highly recommend. (unless ur going with kids).

Just came back from Playa del Carmen (Mayakoba). Rented a car. Had a great time. Felt safe the whole time.  It sure if I am happy or disappointed that I didnít get a speeding ticket and have to bribe a police officer.

Can try to write a trip report but in short red heifer was very good. Didnít go with steak. Got a bunch of appetizers and a pasta with chicken and pesto.  Everything was really good.

Spent most of the time on the banyan tree property where we stayed. Went bike riding, kayaking, etc. Canít say enough good things about the property. Everyone there is friendly and helpful and ready to take you wherever you want to go on the property on a golf cart. Eco tour on a boat around the area is really nice and free.

Ate at mas pan in playa. Nothing amazing but was good enough and really cheap. They have some delicious danishes. Pizza was decent. Panini were ok. Bourekas were average. It is right next to the tourist area on 5th ave. Interesting area to stroll.

Thanks for this, looking to go in the next few weeks. I'm not crazy about renting a car. how hard is it to get to playa from Mayakoba without a car? if you do rent a car what's parking in like in Playa itself?

Thanks for your advise.

I have nothing to do with that channel - I run @JewishAlternativeMusic. They merely reposted it.

I'm not particular with copying music, but every song on my playlist - both this years and last - was released as a free single and/or has the artists permission. Shmuely Ungar's Shabbos was supposed to be on it but was left out for that reason. Mach A Bracha is on becuase it was released as a music video.
Impressed.
