    most Americans get their vanilla from Madagascar, but Mexican vanilla is much better....you can buy it in any drug store, bring plastic bags to get it back to your destination without spilling!

  • 10. Snorkling in Playa

    you can snorkle in Playa and see as much in the ocean as if you went diving...many places will take you right off the beach. It can be a little rough, but well worth it
