Vancouver provides stunning scenery to discover in endless outdoor fashion all year-round. Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge are just two of the top highlights. British Columbia’s marine parks offer remote fjords and vast lakes perfect for whale-watching and hiking, or swimming and kayaking from May to September. Vancouver’s Gulf Islands are teaming with wildlife, keep your cameras close and binoculars at the ready for spotting pods of dolphins, seals, eagles, whales, otters and sea lions.
San Francisco, California
Sitting between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Nevada mountains, laid-back San Francisco is home to an eclectic mix of cultures and the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge. Survey the superb vistas over the Bay or traverse the steep rolling hills by tram. Explore ‘The Rock’ of Alcatraz, visit the Museum of Modern Art or head for the celebrated vineyards of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.
Los Angeles, California
Welcome to the gateway to fame and fortune, with its endless beaches and non-stop excitement. There are wonderful restaurants, exceptional museums, fabulous stores, dazzling nightlife, unlimited recreation and sporting attractions, and a rich multiculturalism that adds international allure. Hit Hollywood to spot all-time film favourites immortalised on bronze and marble stars along the Walk of Fame, compare handprints outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre then glimpse behind the scenes on an illuminating studio tour.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
While growing as a popular tourist destination, Cabo still retains an uncrowded feel with warm hospitality to match the sunshine. Nestled on the Southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, it is famous for its casual atmosphere, exciting nightlife and stunning beaches and scenery.
Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala
On the Pacific Coast of Guatemala, one of the world’s newest and most exciting eco-tourism and cruise destinations, the Central American cruise port Quetzal leads you into a country boasting sublime scenic drama and a colourful history going way back to Mayan times.
Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Explore Puntarenas and discover how rich this ‘Rich Coast’ really is. See the rainforest from up high during a canopy tour through wispy ferns, winding lianas and delicate orchids. You can taste nature’s bounty, too, at one of the plantations which produce the country’s famously rich coffee. Or relax surrounded by lush palms and crystal clear waters.
The fast-growing city of Fuerte Amador lies at the Pacific end of the Panama Canal on a peninsular jutting out from Balboa. It has a marina and a yacht club, and lies close to Panama City, which is on the other side of Ancon Hill. But, if relaxation and shopping is not your thing, you can easily head into Panama City to explore its atmospheric old quarter, Casco Viejo – a warren of streets lined with fine French and Spanish colonial houses and site of a neo Classical palace.
Aruba is the Caribbean, but with a charming rugged edge. Brightly coloured houses, vibrant street life and a distinct buzz in the air, are all part of the experience when you visit the Schooner Market and watch merchants sell exotic fruit and fresh fish direct from tiny boats. Keen golfers should take a tip and reserve a round at the Tierra del Sol course.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Fort Lauderdale is a city famous for its beautiful beaches. With plenty of choice for shopping and dining, you could also take a stroll around it’s historical districts.
