Rock On at the Panama Canal

The last time I really thought about the Panama Canal was back in middle school, when I studied how it transformed global trade routes when it opened in 1914. But then I began hearing rave reviews from several friends who had vacationed there. Suddenly it was on my travel radar. I learned firsthand what a fascinating historic and fun destination it is when I recently got to experience it for myself.

Given a limited budget, an unlimited appetite and an interest in local culture, you can’t go wrong with a weekend escape to Southwest Louisiana, the South’s party capital.  I recently spent three days in a Lake Charles casino for the annual Travel Media Showcase –- the best conference to learn about new destinations and what they offer travelers.

Me and My Monkey in Costa Rica

We were told about the monkeys when we checked into to the Hyatt’s Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort, a delightful, all natural spot nestled on Culebra Bay on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. There were two types in evidence — the capuchins and howler monkeys — and, instead of being alarmed to hear the latter earning their name at night, it was suggested we might become friends.

3 Bucket List Adventures to Check Off in Hawaii

The islands of Hawaii are known for their varied scenery and culture, so when we realized how expensive a trip would be, we picked the most diverse one -- The Big Island – to knock off some bucket list dreams. Little did we know that instead of luaus and hula lessons, we’d be able to swim with manta rays, see lava flowing into the sea, and stargaze from the world’s tallest mountain.
