"You can use credit cards through PayPal and Square. The simplest things to set up and you will be able to make so much more money!  I just did 14 tickets to Ireland at $35 a pop in fees. All you need is a bank account to transfer the money…"

"Stayed at the Hyatt Ziva last Dec and what I did not like about it was that it was very quiet, not a lot going on at either resort. Not very active for 23 year old and 17 year old.  It had the old Ritz Carlton stuffy feel to me.  I do have…"
