Surfing Costa Rica’s Pacific coast

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Dec 27, 2010

The Pacific coast of Costa Rica is fast becoming one of the
hippest spots on the backpack merry-go-round. It’s a surfer’s
paradise in Central America’s most laid-back holiday spot. Areas
such as the Nicoya peninsula and Dominical further
to the south are the real hotspots where the beaches are sublime
and trees and rocks tumble down to meet the fine, white sand –
Costa Rica has a reputation for its magnificent flora and fauna
and there’s nothing to be disappointed about on that score here.
Pelicans and frigate birds wheel overhead as the booming calls
of howler monkeys resound from the nearby rainforests. For those
not satisfied by the ocean alone there are also numerous hikes
in the region and due to Costa Rica’s relatively small size you
are never far away from the eco-tourism centres further inland.

Sticking out like a spare limb into the temperate waters of the
Pacific, Nicoya has a myriad of unspoiled beaches where
the breakers roll in consistently offering great surfing for all
levels of ability whether you’re a pale rookie paddling out for
the first time or a sun-gnarled veteran. It is this variety that
makes the area perfect for one of the world’s fastest growing
sports and the region has had a fantastic reputation in the
worldwide surfing community. A few years ago villages such as
Santa Teresa were no more than a few fishing huts
clustered together but with the boom of tourism in the area
numerous services are now provided by locals offering the dusty
streets a ramshackle charm – a perfect setting for the laid-back
surfers and the ever-growing community of young visitors. For
those just wishing to hang out then there a numerous beach
restaurants and beer shacks where laid back tunes and chilled
cerveza set the tone for the after hours entertainment.

Further to the South lies Dominical, probably Costa
Rica’s most famous surfing grounds. It’s slightly less isolated
than the Nicoya region offering easy access to the surrounding
national parks and also the nation’s capital, San José.
The area is famed for its “surf camps” where surfing,
accommodation food and activities are all included in the
package and is a great way for beginners to get into the sport
and even for experienced surfers who get the chance for tips
from local instructors. The region has begun to develop but by
no means to the extent that we are used to in big European
resorts, eco-lodges are the typical accommodation here and the
focus is on preserving an area of immense natural beauty.
Whether surfing Dominical’s famous breaks or just
chilling on the beach you’ll find the area is as close to
paradise as you’re likely to get in Costa Rica. It’s also worth
noting that it’s not just surfing that’s on the activities list
on Costa Rica’s pacific coast, the whole area is a huge aquatic
playground; waters teeming with fish and other life mean great
scuba diving and yes, you guessed it, great fishing with many
local boats taking tourists out on the hunt for tuna, wahoo,
marlin and other big game.

There are even language schools opening to cater for the influx
of young travellers (an excellent example of this is
http://www.babylon-idiomas.com/ with a great presence in
mainland Spain and Latin America) – no longer solely the domain
of evening classes in your home country, learning a second
language these days is all about cultural immersion. The message
is “why not learn Spanish whilst you’re learning to surf or
dive?” and with much of Central and South America now more open
to tourism there’s no better time to learn the skills to make
yourself understood whilst enjoying the more obvious pursuits
open to travellers.

Virginia Beach

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Dec 27, 2010

Virginia Beach offers just the right balance of water activities and landlocked attractions to visitors of this popular vacation spot. With miles of sandy beaches on one side of its three mile boardwalk and rows of endless attractions on the other side, visitors can make the most of their stay by participating in the endless opportunities for an exciting and memorable adventure. Make your way to Virginia Beach for your next sun and sand expedition and experience more than you ever expected from a coastal town.

The sparkling sandy beaches of Virginia Beach are the ideal place to throw down a towel and make your way into the rushing surf. Whether you prefer catching some sun, lounging on the beach with your favorite book, or jumping waves as you make your way further out to sea, you will find the perfect spot on the miles of beaches that stretch along the coastline. You can spend an entire day at the beach, or you can stroll across the sand and head over to the attractions that shine just across the boardwalk.

The Virginia Beach boardwalk is a popular tourist spot for those looking to break up their day of lying in the sun and frolicking in the water. There are shops and amusement parks that line the shore, but the most common activity is for visitors to walk down the boardwalk and catch sight of the enormous pieces of art that seem to pop up out of nowhere. There are large fish and seashells scattered among other pieces and after seeing them, you can head over to the Virginia Legends Walk to see which individuals, who were either born or resided in Virginia, have made a significant contribution to the nation or world.

While in Virginia Beach, consider visiting the most popular park in the entire state. First Landing State Park is a great place for water activities such as fishing, canoeing, or kayaking while also offering land adventures for those who prefer to stay ashore. Visitors can hike or bike on 9 different trails for a look at the dunes, ponds, and wildlife that abound, but the most popular trail, Bald Cypress Trail, is perfect for those who want a short yet meaningful look at what this area has to offer.

If you are looking for an indoor activity that is sure to delight children and adults alike, head over to the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center for an entertaining afternoon. There are two buildings, the Atlantic Ocean Pavilion and the Owls Creek Pavilion, that are stuffed to the gills with marine life and bird life that are native to the different areas they represent. Catch sight of sharks, stingrays, sandtigers, seahorses, fiddler crabs, egrets, pelicans, and turkey vultures all while enjoying the hands-on exhibits and the IMAX movie for an informative and interesting day.

Staying near the water typically means a journey out to sea for a fishing expedition on a charter boat. Climb aboard with a charter company such as Aquaman Sportfishing Charters for a try at blue and white marlin, wahoo, dolphin, and many other species and come back with a fishing story you are bound to repeat numerous times over. The experience is always memorable with an offshore adventure so don’t forget your camera and come prepared to reel in a big one.

Virginia Beach is simply buzzing with activities both on shore and on land. To get the most out of your trip, stay close to all the festivities in Virginia Beach vacation rentals that are located on the water with breathtaking views of the ocean. You can watch the sunset from the comfort of your patio or take the short stroll to the sand for a romantic end to an already exhilarating day. No matter what you are looking for, you are sure to find a home or condo rental that has everything you need for the most convenient and relaxing vacation you have ever experienced.

Astounding Alaska: Home to Pristine Wildlife, Majestic Nature and Rich Culture

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Dec 27, 2010

The state of Alaska has countless possibilities. From the many distinct traditional customs to the jaw-dropping glaciers and mountain panorama to the copious activities and adventure, visitors can experience the thrill these have to offer.

Unique Tradition and Myriad Recreations
If you are fascinated with history, culture, and outdoor adventures, Alaska has countless possibilities. The many distinct indigenous customs of Alaska simply stir up the minds and hearts of tourists. Time-honored arts and music, the Eskimo blanket toss, Native dance, totem carving, and cultural museums are some of the means by which guests can have a taste of Alaskan rich tradition. Not to mention other intellectual draws like the Russian iconography. What’s more, Alaska tourists can be awed not only of breath taking panorama of mountains and dazzling glaciers as well as bodies of water, but also of scores of activities one can engage in. Fishing, mountain biking, whale watching, river rafting, kayaking, wildlife hunting, and bear viewing. All these and lots more are in store for visitors to experience the thrill they have to offer.

The South-central and Southeast regions normally encounter average temperatures and heavy rainfall with summer seasons varying from 15 to 21°C. The western side is generally foggy, breezy, and rainy with summer averaging at about 7 to 9 °C. Majority of Alaska regions savor the midnight’s sun enchantment, an oversupply of daylight which make friends and families trekking after dinner. Most of summer seasons provide 24-hour daylight. The later part of August and September provide cooler temperatures as well as fewer sunlight hours.

Best Time To Visit
Since May to September have the longest and balmiest atmospheres, throng of visitors flock Alaska. Certain leisure activities and accommodations are only offered during these peak months. Expect to catch bargains on both activities and lodging come after the peak seasons (May and September to October). During these months, the weather is typically very moderate. Alaska’s winter time is from November to April. For someone captivated with skiing, witnessing the drama of Northern Lights, cheering for the sled dog and ice carving contests and going to the Fur Rendezvous, visit “The Great Land” during these periods.

Getting There
Alaska Airlines, the primary local airline, flies to most cities and towns. Airports are located in Juneau, Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Ketchikan. Bush planes are available for lease so as to bring you into the midst of the wilds or reach far-flung communities. Public busses are accessible in the bigger cities and towns. However, if you have company of more than two, it can be more economical to hire a vehicle. If you are arriving by marine ferry, you’ll sail alongside Inside Passage watercourse and if you are driving, you will track the Alaska Hwy. European and Asian visitors will have to first stop over in LA, Seattle, Chicago, Vancouver or Minneapolis and take a connecting air travel to Anchorage. In addition, biking can be an efficient and inexpensive means to get around.

• Wildlife Watching
The unspoiled, wonderful wilds of the state can be considered as the last remnant of booming inhabitants of North America’s wildlife. You can observe the following rare animals in their untouched territory: Grizzly bears, polar bears, bald eagles, moose, humpbacked whales, blue whales, and wolves and hundred more!
• Fishing
Alaska brings 627 fish species along with 3,000 rivers, 3 million plus lakes, and myriad streams. The state has several of the most magnificent fishing quests on earth! These include freshwater and saltwater fishing, fly fishing, and ice fishing. You can rent a ferry or fly to unload you to a quiet, isolated fishing nook or stop at the roadside and cast a line. Selecting where and what species to catch is all up to you.
