recently I've taken on a project that is a bit overwhelming due to the fact I have never made a website this big before. It's a travel website that features reviews, photos, user articles, etc.

Anyways, I've been reading a lot of threads here about custom post types, categories, and taxonomies, but I'm a very indecisive person and would like some of your guys' advice on how I should tackle this specific permalink structure.

So let's get down to it. There are currently 4 'post types' of the site that include: destinations / travel-logs / photo gallery / hotel reviews. I was also given a permalink structure that goes like this (with example):


So my idea is to set each 'post type' as custom post types, then each continent/country/city as categories. For you skimmers:

'travel-logs,destinations,etc' => custom post type
'continent,country,city' => category

My question is this: will it work? If I have 5 custom post types and a ton of hierarchical categories for the locations, will it work and be efficient? Or should I use taxonomies instead of custom post types?
