Population destinations at the moment include the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, New York City, Last Vegas, Cancun, Miami, Hawaii Riviera Maya, and Los Cabos.
The company calls themselves a “hotel tell-all,” and features stories on topics ranging from foodie travel to luxury hotels, and even a photo fakeout section comparing altered photos to the real deal.
