Savings in South America Blossoming cherry trees, tulips and daffodils up north mean that the leaves of the beech trees in Torres del Paine and Los Glacieres National Park have all turned red and gold, sure signs that winter in the Southern hemisphere is not far off. But it isn’t too early to start planning your trip for next season to... For the first time in years, the cost of travel to Patagonia has decreased! Chile has eliminated the $160 Reciprocity Fee US citizens were formerly charged upon arrival into Santiago, a considerable savings for families. If you have some flexibility with your dates and aren’t set on traveling over the peak months of December, January and February, you can stretch your travel dollars further by booking one of the discounted shoulder season departures with savings of up to $1000 per person. (See below for a complete listing of discounted departure dates.) I had...

Why Shoulder Season Travel is Spectacular! I recently returned from a trip to Peru with my brother to trek the Inca Trail and search for wildlife in the Amazon region of Tambopata. Our trip was in early March, just a few days after the Inca Trail opened for the 2014 season and right in the middle of Peru’s ‘rainy season.’  Traditionally, this is not thought of as an ideal time to go trekking since most people prefer not to hike in the rain. (Unless you live in the Pacific Northwest, then you are just used to it.)  Our timing wasn’t the best in that sense but we were just stoked to go so we packed the gortex, rain pants and ponchos and hoped for the best. It only rained on us twice in 16 days.  There were occasional wimpy sprinklings in the mornings but those didn’t even merit breaking out the rain jacket.  Mostly we had...
Costa Rica Ranks Top 5 for Best Health Care in the World Costa Rica among the top 5 countries that provide the Best Health Care in the world. I felt very proud to hear Costa Rica was ranked among the top 5 countries with the best health care systems on the planet, according to the Huffington Post. If you have ever being worried about traveling to Costa Rica for health issues, you can rest assure that you will be in a very safe environment from arrival to departure and that in case of any emergency you will be in the professional hands with access to the best health technology.

Fresh Water: The water throughout Costa Rica is good to drink. Approx. 99% of the urban population is...

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...

Top 3 Places to Fall in Love in Ecuador Everyone knows that beaches are romantic, right? Walking barefoot in sand & surf, playing tag with the waves….awwww. But there are other natural locations that offer their own distinctive glow.  Here are my top 3 places to fall in love while traveling in Ecuador: The rainforest – Lazing in a hammock while a tropical storm sweeps through the verdant forest, leaving everything sparkling and sultry in its wake. A nighttime canoe paddles under star-studded skies, the sounds of the night forest alive all around you. Exhilarating and sensuous, all at the same time. At the top of my list is the Napo Wildlife Center in Ecuador. It is located adjacent to 82 sq miles of Yasunì National Park and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the largest tract of protected tropical rain forest in Ecuador. The Mountains – Specifically an Andean hacienda, tucked away amidst volcanic peaks. Spend the day hiking alpine trails, horseback riding,...
