  • I sat in a curiously speckled kitchen, dotted with trinket cows. They were mounted to the wall, stuck on the fridge, poised on the stove, splashed by the aceite of many a meal. Tía Alba, as she is known in Chimaltenango, has a knack for the vaca. We were sitting at the fold-out table eating...

  • Beaches with white sand, pool’s with the most sparkling blue water and restaurants with the best menus. Wouldn’t that be the most terrific family vacation ever?

We realized after just a short week on the sunny, breezy beaches, that this was a spot on earth that was closest to heaven itself.

  • Family vacations have been a summer tradition since I was little. Sometimes we fly, other years we’ve driven, but either way, my parents, two brothers, and I head out of town for a week to discover new things. Throughout the years, we’ve been in over 30 states and after last summer, 10 different...
