How to Make Local Connections in Morocco I would say the single most difficult thing about planning a trip is finding an authentic cultural experience with the locals and I'm not talking about pulling over in a small town to buy some souvenirs. I'm talking about a real sincere opportunity to get to know the locals, without artifice and without a script. By far my favorite memories have been getting the chance to get to know the locals and experience their daily life. Finding that local connection is especially arduous when planning a trip to Morocco. Morocco is undeniably a beautiful and fascinating country, but not the easiest place to find an authentic experience. It's really important if your planning to travel to Morocco that you go with a travel company that really knows Morocco well and more importantly, has amazing guides.  Having a local guide that you can trust is the true key to a successful trip in Morocco. Luckily for me...
Top 5 Reasons to Head to Costa Rica With my Padre My Dad and I are traveling to Costa Rica next week for a much needed vacation. I thought it would be a neat idea for each of us to write down the top 5 reasons we want to visit Costa Rica and compare them. A little about us first:  for starters, I'm in my 20's and my Dad is in his 60's. We've both been very fortunate to travel extensively, but his list is much more extensive than mine. Needless to say, finding a destination neither of us has been to was a challenge in itself. Luckily we have similar interests and both enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, rafting, snorkeling, etc...  We decided on Costa Rica in a very technical fashion... we both wrote down a list of our top 5 places we wanted to visit next and Costa Rica was the match!  Now for the reasons we want to go to Costa...

This photo really does says it all, traveling with your love is one of the most powerful experiences you can have togehter. When I took this photo I was traveling with a girlfriend and when we stumbled upon this sign it really made us realize how lucky we were to be traveling the world together. By far my best trips and memories have been spent traveling with someone I love. No matter what level or state the relationship was in, traveling together strenghted our bond. Traveling also gives you a chance to take your relationship to new heights. It gives you all the elements you need to build a better and stronger relationship: lots of time together (which, with our busy schedules doesn't happen as oftern as we like.), unforgettable memories, new expeirences, a reason to spoil each other and most importantly... it gives you a chance to leave all...

The New Morocco Let me start by saying 2014 is going to be an exciting year for Wildland and our travelers. Today, I get the honor of announcing that we have two new trips to Morocco. Yes, both our Exotic Morocco Tour and Moroccan Adventure have been totally redesigned. Luckily for me, I got to be the first one to experience our new Exotic Morocco Tour.  Here's a break down of  what to expect on our new Exotic Morocco Tour: The Wild Style:  Our 'Wild Style' of travel in Morocco is based on many years of experience designing trips throughout the Magreb. The design of our itineraries and your experience in the field is facilitated by our close-working relationships with guides, accommodations and outfitters on the ground to avoid the pitfalls of travel in Morocco. We assure you have the most comfortable, safe and authentic travel experience. Our expert driver-guides help you get the...
I recently set out on a two week reconnaissance mission to Morocco with the objective of searching for new routes and making deeper connections with the locals. I accomplished my goal and we are excited to announce we have redesigned our trips to Morocco, including new expert local guides who are your personal connection to the people and places you visit. Also expect to see plenty more photos and incredible stories from my trip to Morocco.   This was my second trip to Morocco, but the difference this time was the accompaniment of a local guide. With his help I found some extraordinary places which gave deeper insight into the culture, traditions and history of this marvelous country. From incredible adventure activities like sandboarding in the Sahara to authentic cultural experiences such as dinner with local Berbers, it was truly a trip of a lifetime. I sincerely hope everyone gets the chance to...
