A trip to Nicaragua would not be complete without trying out volcano boarding: sandboarding down an active volcano—an extreme sport that could have only been created in a place known as the “Land of Lakes and Volcanoes”. Cerro Negro, an imposing dark mass of rock and volcanic ash true to its name (“Black Hill”), is the place to test your fear. Formed in 1850, it is the youngest volcano in Central America, and has erupted more than twenty times. Best of all: it’s still active today. Although the Cerro Negro volcano is relatively small at only 400 meters high, its slopes are incredibly steep. One of these has an incline so dramatic that walking up is impossible, but because it is uniquely composed of volcanic ...
Tucked away above a small resort town amid beautiful alpine scenery, the Banff Upper Hot Springs is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the incredible mountain views of Banff National Park. Discovered in 1884 by settlers, the streams that formed the Banff Upper Hot Springs were once considered to have sacred healing powers by Natives in the area. These naturally-heated mineral-rich waters come from deep within the appropriately named Sulphur Mountain, and are enjoyed by visitors from all over the world. Today, the ancient waters of the Banff Upper Hot Springs are fed into a large modern pool which overlooks the Rocky Mountains behind the historic bath house building. Buy your entry ticket for less than C$10, and head to the spacious change rooms ...

As I stood on a tiny wooden platform, staring down into the impossible depths of the lush Costa Rican Rainforest, I began to reconsider my decision to try zip lining for the first time. After the first leap into the forest-abyss, overwhelmed and exhilarated from my jungle flight, I was hooked on Costa Rica zip lining. The small town of Montezuma, located on the southern tip of Costa Rica’s beautiful Nicoya Peninsula, is famous for it scenic waterfalls and coastline. A canopy tour in Montezuma is an unrivaled means of exploration, simply put, it is Costa Rica zip lining at its best. The Canopy Tour takes visitors across 9 cables and 11 platforms situated 1200 meters above the forest at different points along the Montezuma ...
Softly glowing from behind its celebrated stonewalls, the lights in Old Town Dubrovnik pour out over the Adriatic coast. The seasoned streets are full of medieval charm, and on a rare night, undisturbed by any other tourists, I was one of small group of travelers who had the privilege of the place all to ourselves. I came to Dubrovnik by sailboat – the third stop along our Dalmatian coast cruise. Completely unaware of its enchanting power, intensely rich history and lively culture, I was taken happily by surprise. After docking amongst the other beautifully crafted European boats in the harbor, we trailed down the marble streets of Dubrovnik one at a time. Running our fingers over the carvings along these ancient buildings, we hurriedly soaked ...
