ST. MAARTEN

The island of Sint Maarten-Saint Martin is the smallest land mass in the world to be shared by two different nations. Only 37 square miles are governed by France and the Kingdom of the Netherlands Days filled with sunshine, velvet soft nights and breathtaking scenery are only some of the ingredients that create the unique feel and taste that reflect Saint-Martin.  Divest yourself of the every day on the beaches and discover the heat of the beautiful powder white sands. Enjoy the feel of turquoise waters that are ideal for massaging your cares away. Take a dive into the undersea world of coral and caves filled with the color of tropical fish.

CURACAO

Colorful and lively Curaçao has so many stories to tell. Of course, the island is a popular holiday destination all year round, because of the climate. It's always summer and the blue sea offers a nice cooling down. Everyone and everything between its beautiful beaches make it a perfect destination for the whole family - or those traveling without… Whether you’re looking for a challenging wall dive or a shallow snorkeling spot, you’ll find it here. Beaches, of course, are another big draw. With sugar-fine sand and calm waters, they’re perfect for kids and adults alike.

BARBADOS

Barbados is a coral island, pushed out of sea by volcanic activity in a far away time. On the West Coast of Barbados, coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue-green sea. Coral reefs fringe the Barbados shoreline to provide excellent snorkeling and Scuba Diving. Along the East Coast a lively surf is blown briskly by the strong and constant trade winds and the waves pound against a rocky shore. The constant breeze of the trade winds give Barbados a mild and pleasant tropical climate. Within the Barbados coral core there is a vast array of caves and underground lakes which provide an excellent supply of drinking water that is amongst the purest in the world.

ST. KITTS

Intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make St. Kitts one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean.  St. Kitts' wonderful beaches remain relatively crowd-free, and nature lovers delight in seeing lava formations, tropical forest and lagoons and underwater marvels while snorkeling or diving. Among more than 200 historical sites, former plantation homes now offer elegant accommodation. Eco- rambles, bio-tours and climbing are Nevis attractions. Rent cars or mopeds on-island and catch ferries between the two.

ALASKA

What can we say about Alaska?  It is the last of the true wilderness areas in the world with plenty of wildlife, natural glaciers, snow-capped mountains, lots of fishing,a nd the list goes on.  The capital city of Juneau can only be reached by air or water, there is no way to drive into this city from outside it’s mountainous borders. The city of Ketchikan is like stepping back into the Gold Rush days of the pionner with it’s rustic and historical beauty.  Denali national park is filled with wildlife and remarkable beauty that lingers on and beckons to you for years to come.  This is such a remarkable and beautiful place, that many continue to return their visit to this natural wonderland.

No matter what your travel likes are, Belize makes it all come true.  From exploring ancient Mayan temples to discovering marine world wonders, to meeting fantastic locals, it’s a sure thing to say that there are more things to do here than you could possibly cover in one visit.
