Most of you probably heard about the Kuang Si waterfalls in Laos, or the Ban Gioc waterfall in Vietnam, or even of Samuc Champey in Guatemala. But have you heard about Plitvice lakes? This beautiful natural site is located in the heart of Europe, in Croatia and is part of UNESCO World Heritage.
Have you heard of Uvita? If not, don’t feel bad. Costa Rica is well known for its lush Rainforests, beautiful beaches of Santa Teresa, or the Caribbean vibes of Puerto Viejo. To be honest, I only came here because I crossed the border with Panama and wanted a quiet place on the beach to relax. And it was perfect!
Monteverde is a complex of parks and natural reserves that are well prepared to receive tourists. There are night tours, animal refugees, canopy tours, a snake zoo, a frog sanctuary. Nature lovers will not get bored here, fore sure.
One thing is for sure: Costa Rica has the most amazing nature I have ever seen in my life. The lush, heavy, green, wild jungle is right behind you when you seat on the beach, resting from a day of surfing, watching one the most stunning sunsets in the world. That’s how I remember it.
When you read blog posts about traveling to Colombia, you will come across a recommendation of Palomino. Where is it, what is it, and if you are not going further east, is it really worth it? The answer is: it depends on what you are looking for. Here’s what Palomino is all about.
While a lot of people begin their journey through Mexico from Yucatan, most of them stop on the Caribbean coast. It is beautiful, sure, but too full of tourists if you ask me. Everyone speaks English and when you enter a store or a restaurant saying “Hola!” you will hear “Hello, how are you today?” in return. It’s a wonderful place for a stress-free holiday, diving with green turtles and trying some amazing Mexican food. And if in addition you would like to venture yourself to the heart of Yukatan and meet the real Mexicans, follow me.
