So you have traveled all over the world and seen everything. Or have you? With so many places to go and so many types of transportation, it can be confusing not to mention hectic. If you have never cruised before I highly recommend looking into it. It can be a great way to knock a bunch of countries, cities, and places off your bucket list.
Two countries, one island: Sint Maarten and Saint Martin offer the world a lesson in sharing. With the lively Dutch Sint Maarten to the south, the laid back French Saint Martin to the north, and no marked border in between visiting the friendly island is like getting a two-for-one deal. With dozens of beaches, excellent duty-free shops, countless land and water activities, and abundant world-class dining options, this tiny island is one of the leading destinations in the Caribbean.
Puerto Rico may be a commonwealth of the United States, but its culture stays true to its Spanish roots and Caribbean heritage. Nowhere is this more evident than in bustling San Juan, where customs and folklore continue to thrive alongside modern day conveniences. Known as “La Cuidad Amurallada” (the walled city), San Juan was founded and settled by the Spanish in 1521. Today, San Juan is the second oldest European settlement in the Americas with one of the largest natural harbors in the Caribbean. You can fully appreciate its colonial past by taking a stroll through Old San Juan. From architectural landmarks to world-class art museums, this picturesque part of the city is full of interesting things to see and do. And for the more adventuresome, you won’t want to miss the massive El Yunque Rain Forest, once believed to be the Fountain of Youth.
On the north coast of Haiti sits a tropical haven Royal Carribean calls their own. Set amid spectacular mountains and lush foliage, Labadee is reserved exclusively for Royal Carribean International guests. Though privately owned, this breathtakingly beautiful destination still retains much of its local color. 5 white sandy beaches with crystal clear water awaited us with numerous water activities.
Five days of work this week and then hellloo long weekend! If you haven’t made plans as yet it’s still not too late to do so. Rounding up Memorial Weekend activities and getaways around the San Francisco bay area.
While Cinco de Mayo has nothing to do with drinking and margaritas, it somehow has become the thing to do. So in honor of Cinco de Mayo and drinking (which please do responsibly) I am sharing with you the best margaritas recipes + San Francisco’s Best Margaritas (if making one doesn’t go so well or you just get lazy).
