Taking the family to the Galapagos? Here are a few things to know!

Taking the family to the Galapagos?  Here are a few things to know!
I admit I may be a bit biased, but I believe the Galapagos Islands may be one of the best destinations on Earth for family travel.  They offer the perfect combination of education and fun activities - hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, and now even stand-up paddle-boarding on some vessels!  We work with yachts offering a range of family-friendly cabin configurations, and naturalist guides who are experts at not only imparting great information but also bringing all the kids onboard together in activities, promoting connections and friendships.  What are other differences in Family Departures that set them apart from regular Galapagos voyages?  The yachts with designated Family Departures will accept younger kids on those special dates.  For example, the Eric or Letty normally set a cut-off age of 12 years on regular sailings, but if you choose a Family Departure, the minimum age can drop to 5 years.Another favorite Family Departure yacht, the...

Why You Should Be Planning a Trip to Brazil

Why You Should Be Planning a Trip to Brazil
This massive country has so much to offer and has somehow managed to fly under the radar for far too long. Between sleeping in the Amazon canopy, working with local communities, trail running with monkeys, experiencing the Pantaneiro (cowboy) lifestyle in the wetlands, spelunking into caves, snorkeling in crystal clear rivers, admiring vibrant street art over a few cold cervejas with locals in the hip urban centers and trekking through ancient mountains and small villages lost in time, Brazil is one of our favorite destinations. Whether you travel to Brazil in search of adventures, wildlife or culture, there is a region to appeal to every interest!Where to go? Scout for Jaguars in the expansive wetlands of Brazil's Pantanal Swim with pink dolphins and explore the rainforest canopy on our Best of Brazil Adventue. Snorkel in crystal clear rivers and explore ancient caves in Bonito on our Brazil family adventure. Trek through the...

Redefining Adventure in Brazil’s Wild West (Part 2)

Redefining Adventure in Brazil’s Wild West (Part 2)
Here is part one if you haven't already read it: Redefining Adventure in Brazil’s Wild West (Part 1)Prying ourselves away from the majesty of the Pantanal’s landscapes and warmhearted people was a difficult task. To ease the pain of separation, we were surprised with a traditional Pantaneiro lunch of epic proportions at the charming Recanto Vale do Sol. Greeted by a live local samba band, grilled meats galore, a refreshing swimming pool for a mid-day dip and bottomless caipirinhas, we were instantly reminded that there is no time to be forlorn in Brazil, because the best always yet to come!The second half of our adventures in Brazil was based from the adventure heaven of Bonito- an ecotourism paradise chock full of natural attractions and rich in culture. Crystal clear rivers, cascading waterfalls, epic caves, abundant wildlife, tempting culinary delights, and a strong sense of community make this area utterly unique; it quickly became...
