Nineteen years ago this month I was relaxing on the beach in Cancun. I can't believe it was that long ago, as that trip was so memorable it seems like only yesterday. I can close my eyes and feel the warm sun and the sand beneath my toes. I can still taste the delicious food. And I'll never forget our day at Xcaret, swimming in the underground rivers and exploring the amazing butterfly garden and aviary.

I'm so grateful that I got to spend this week in paradise with my parents so many years ago. And now that I have my own family, I'd like to share a similar adventure with them. But times have changed and my family's safety is at the top of my priority list when planning any vacation. Fortunately there are a few easy vacation safety tips that will make our dream trip as safe as it is relaxing and fun.

Vacation Safety Tips Every Traveler Should Know

Staying safe is something everyone needs to include in their vacation plans, no matter your destination. With these easy tips, you can be sure that your trip will be memorable for all the right reasons.

Do Your Research
The U.S. State Department has a new system for alerting Americans about safety concerns when traveling internationally. Check their website and research your destination before booking a vacation. (PS - Cancun, Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos currently have no travel restrictions!)

Remember Your ID
Always bring 2 forms of identification on your trip, and it's a good idea to make a photocopy of your passport. Keep copies of your ID in the hotel safe just in case.

Know the Area
When you arrive at your destination, familiarize yourself with the information and security desks at your resort. Find out who to contact in case you need assistance. Use the resources at your resort to help you ensure that any outings or exploring remains in tourist-friendly areas.

Book the Smart Way
Always book your travel through a reliable, reputable company. Not only will you ensure that your accommodations will be what you are expecting, but often you can save when you bundle your hotel, airfare, and transfers together in one package.

Booking your Cancun (or other amazing destination) vacation through Apple Vacations is a no-brainer. You'll get an all-inclusive package including your flights, accommodations, and transfers, plus the added benefit of having an in-resort Apple representative at your service. These representatives have scheduled desk hours and welcome briefings at most resorts to help ensure that your vacation is perfect from start to finish.

Your Apple vacation also often comes with non-stop flights with schedules that maximize your time at your destination, not at the airport.

Use Common Sense
The last tip is really an easy one, but one that we sometimes forget in the excitement of traveling. Use your common sense and be cautious when you are in any unfamiliar surroundings. Use the trusted resources of your resort concierge or travel advisor to help you choose excursions or restaurants. And be sure to plan ahead by checking online reviews or talking with people familiar with the area. Stay smart and you'll stay safe... and have lots of fun!
