Northface Women's Horizon II pants I got my first pair of Women's Horizon II Pants (black) about four years ago for a safari in Africa and since then that’s the only type of pants I like to travel with. They are especially nice for traveling in Central America, where I work and play. Since then I've bought two other pairs in beige and olive green. They are perfect for the sometimes intense tropical weather conditions you can find at these destinations. The pants are super light weight, dry very quickly and offer a lot of mobility and flexibility for climbing, hiking and trekking. They also feature roll up cuffs with tabs to keep the hems out of mud or pools of waters and provide some relief when it gets too hot. Having a good pair of pants in the jungle is important because they can also protect you from bug bites. It has a secure-zip...

Chile for hip travelers When thinking of trips to Chile, most travelers think of the rugged, southern frontier of Patagonia or the arid, crimson Atacama Desert in the north. Santiago, when compared to some of it austral capitol counterparts, is often overlooked. Though I personally do not find Santiago to be the most inspiring of cities, its surrounding wine country and western, more artsy sibling city on the coast, Valparaiso, are absolutely amazing and tend to go undiscovered by the vast majority of adventure travelers. When taking off on an adventure, I find that as much as I yearn for foreign nature and wilderness, I equally find myself lusting for culture and unfamiliar urban inspiration. Santiago’s neighboring areas of Valparaiso and diverse wine country offer just this juxtaposition and make for an excellent way to begin or end a trip in Chile before or after embarking out into its more far-flung back country. Take...
What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco? I recently had the opportunity to answer that great question: "What's so different about  Wildland Adventures' trips to Morocco?" What we do in Morocco (and everywhere else in the world for that matter) is individual and personalized, much different than virtually all other tour companies running adventure trips in Morocco. Our driver/escorts, and local guides we meet up with along the way, will not take Wildland travelers to places without asking. For example, before setting out each morning our lead driver/guide, Kamal  Abdelfadil, will show you where you've already traveled, where you are planning to go and do that day,and what your options are to see and do. So, the extent to which you do some additional research as we are planning your itinerary, or simply in anticipation of your trip to Morocco, it will help you to have an idea of places you would like to see. You will...

The Art of Organized Packing My first step for packing for any adventure is to write my pack list and the second is to pull out my packing cubes and my RuMe Reveal Pockets . When traveling with all of my belongings on my back, I try to stay as organized as possible. I can’t count how many times my Ziploc bags have broke during travel and The RuME pockets are a great solution. They are durable, lightweight and TSA approved. The packing cubes are also great as you can see through them and they are flexible - no need to sit on them to make them close! I put dirty clothes in one, my clean clothes in another and my son’s clothes in a third. Finally, my dirty shoes get a fully-closed cube. When you get to your hotel, just pull out the cubes and you are unpacked! Or go to the beach with one...
Nicaragua’s Newest Airport Is Officially Open If you've been planning a trip to Nicaragua there is good news! The newest airport is officially open and that means it’s even easier to get to the enchanting Ometepe Island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua. The La Paloma Airport received its inaugural flight on La Costeña Airlines from Managua. The flight from Managua to Ometepe Island is about a 20-minute domestic flight. Ometepe Island is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is home to richly diverse habitats and wildlife, as well as incredible culture and history. Its two distinct volcanoes, Concepcion and Maderas, grace the skyline as you glide into the new Ometepe Airport from Managua. Airfare costs about $65 one-way, or $100 roundtrip. You can also take the ferry as we have done in the past. Either way, it’s worth the trip to Ometepe!  Why is Ometepe such an attractive destination? Well there is a wide variety of...
