Live up to the Jamaica experience

CAR_Vive Jamaica activamente

Traveling to Jamaica gives you the chance to enjoy plenty of excursions and activities, because Jamaica not only gives tourists the chance to lie down right by the Caribbean—you can also venture into the forest and mountain areas of this tropical island. You’ll find that there’s a lot you can do in Jamaica. I recommend all the open air activities because you’ll enjoy them fully and that’s why you spent so many hours on the plane anyway. Don’t you agree? Try out something different, for instance going trekking in the Blue Mountains, the famous Jamaican mountain range that can be…

The romantic Samaná

Samaná is a province of the Dominican Republic spanning the entire namesake peninsula, a beautiful part of the island that was discovered by Columbus in his first voyage to the Americas. It is known for the Samaná Bay and the palm tree beaches, plus the Sierra of Samaná, a stretch of hills setting the direction for the coastal breeze. Samaná provides an impressive view thanks to the sharp contrast between the green hillsides and the white sand. It is a large peninsula covering an area of over 850 sq. km, bigger than many Caribbean islands, meaning there is a lot…

Jamaica’s most famous waterfalls

Jamaica is known for its waterfalls and the most famous of them all, the ones you can’t miss no matter what happens, are the Dunn’s River Falls. It is no surprise that they should be one of the most popular tourist attractions on the island. Located near Ocho Rios, the waters fall directly into the Caribbean Sea, being among the few waterfalls in the world directly pouring their waters into the ocean. Thousands of tourists visit them every year but this should not be a throwback—it’s a sin to go to Jamaica and come back not having visited this natural…

Cenotes, treasures of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico) are caves, caverns and freshwater pits that are millions of years old. The water was trapped when the sea level rose and filtered through the limestone, forming these natural masterworks. There are three types: open, semi-closed and closed cenotes, depending on their access way. The ancient Mayas used them for their rituals and sacrifices—believing they led to the underworld. It is calculated that there are around 8,000 cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula, considering that many are yet to be discovered, and every one of them is a unique wonder of the world waiting…
