Fantastic for people going to the Rivieria Maya
Kay does an excellent job finding people who either live in or have moved to the Riviera Maya. If you want to learn more about the area (especially if you are interested in cool new things to see/do while visiting there) this is a must listen. In fact, I think anyone who is travelling to the area should listen to this first.
