You haven’t seen the ocean until you’ve dived at the Maldives

The word “dive” is even in the name of the country, right?
But let’s be serious. And let’s talk about a world-class destination for water sports.
The Maldives is a country in the midst of the Indian Ocean, comprising 19,000
square kilometres, of which less than 300 are on land. Its highest point is a
staggering 5 metres above the level of the sea. In other words, welcome to the
ocean. And whether it’s diving, snorkeling, jet-skiing, paddle-boating, or just lazily
floating through the reef with the fishes, the tropical paradise of the Maldives has it
all!


Whatever you want to do in the Maldives – if there’s water involved, then it’s an
option. Whether you’re a thrill-seeking adrenaline junkie, or a newlywed just
looking for a place to relax – or maybe you feel like one today, the other tomorrow.
Never fear. These beautiful, low-lying islands can give you whatever you’re after.
Here are just a few of the exciting, world-class options available on the sparkling
Maldivian waters:


● Parasailing: We’ll start with some sports that you’ve heard of, but probably
never tried. Well, it’s time to try them! Parasailing in the Maldives is incredible:
with beautiful, sapphire water and cerulean skies; it’s not an experience that
you’ll ever forget.

● Windsurfing: One of the more popular water sports in the Maldives, windsurfing
is the diva that’ll steal the thunder from the rest of your vacation. Zipping along
the crystal clear water, seeing fish or even stingrays darting below you… what’s
not to love about it? Book it through a resort that specialises in the sport for an
optimal experience.

● Flyboarding: Odds are you’ve never heard of “flyboarding.” But if you’re a
thrill-seeker, this most popular water sport in the Maldives was made for you! It
involves getting on a board which is attached to a jet ski by a hose that sends it
up into the air! And begs the question: is this really a “water” sport, or is it an
aerial one?

● Fun tubing: If the name isn’t evocative enough, imagine zipping through the
water at breakneck speeds in an inflatable raft. Yep, that’s “fun tubing”! And in
the Maldives, it’s a great option that’ll keep you close to the ground (or at least
the water’s surface!) but still offers plenty of bumpy, jouncing thrills.

● Catamaran Sailing: If you’re not so much a thrill seeker as someone who wants
some time to relax and soak in the tropical vibes, then this is for you. Take you
catamaran to one of the islands’ many deserted beaches, and spend some time
alone – or alone with your special someone.

blank


● Snorkeling: One of the best activities in the Maldives, this needs no
introduction. Short of diving down with them, it’s the best way to view the atolls’
wonderful fauna – and it’s available almost everywhere you turn!

blank


● Scuba diving: And last, but not least: the reason that many people come all the
way out to the Maldives. The diving opportunities here are simply unmatched in
the rest of the world. The islands’ most popular activity, you can’t pass up scuba
during your visit. And if you’ve never dived, you can learn how in one of the most
exquisite diving spots on this planet!

Mediterranean Islands in Europe which is are a must visit!

Is it the sea, the strange sense of security, or just that wonderful feeling of escaping from life on the mainland that makes an island break so special? Whatever the exact chemistry, islands make brilliant holiday destinations, and nowhere more so than in the Mediterranean in summer. With the help of our experts, we’ve created the definitive list for this summer

The Mediterranean, or the Med as it’s often abbreviated to, defines a group of twenty-one countries. Each country is unique and has its own distinct culture. With so many different destinations to choose from, it’s not easy deciding which is the perfect one for your getaway break. The tourists make a beeline to the rivieras over here, in the summer season, to sample the Mediterranean Sun, sand, and sea. That said, the best places where one can sample the best of what the Mediterranean Sea has to offer is the Mediterranean islands.

Some of the best Mediterranean islands which one can visit are –

blank

Santorini (Greece) – This volcanic island is world-famous for its black sand beaches, white houses, blue domes, bazaars, blue sea, etc. It is a place where you can sample some of the best seafood which the Aegean (a sea which is a part of the Mediterranean region) can offer. The ambience of Santorini island is unmatchable. Tourists make it a point to observe the sunset from Santorini as it is a vision that one can never forget.

blank

Mykonos (Greece) – This island, also a part of the Cyclades Archipelago like Santorini is famous for its azure blue sea and sandy beaches. The seaside restaurants serving cuisine which includes seafood fresh from the sea is another attraction. Tourists in their bathing suits either swimming or sunbathing is a common sight on the beaches of Mykonos. In the evening the dance clubs are a popular attraction for the visitors as Mykonos is one of the hubs of Electronic Dance Music.

blank

Ibiza (Spain) – A part of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza is famous for its nightlife. That said, there are numerous activities in Ibiza like scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, jet boating, etc. for the adventurous streak. Those who wish to indulge in cultural tourism can check out the archaeological sites of Sa Caleta and Puig des Molins too. The Renaissance-era fortified upper town of Ibiza, also known as Alto Vila, is also worth a visit. Ibiza has often been considered a victim of its image as a party destination but, the reality is that parts of Ibiza are also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So, when here, you are assured to get a sample of a bit of the modern world, the neo-modern world, and also the early modern world.

Sardinia (Italy) – This large island is surrounded by azure blue seas and sandy beaches. It consists of historical towns and archaeological sites as well and is a traveler’s delight. In comparison to other islands in the Mediterranean, this island offers options like trekking, in the hinterland, as well. The main town of Cagliari is a place popular for shopping on the island.

Consult a travel expert so that they can help you with the destination you would like to visit. So, do not think twice. Start preparing for a trip which you would remember for a lifetime!

Our top ten things to do in Los Cabos

I am often asked how I have chosen the top 10 list, that I put up on my blog.  While in college I found it much easier to create a list when I started studying for a test or writing a term paper. Knowing that it is easy to understand why I create a top ten list, now as to how do I decide what goes on the list, simply put it is things I would like to do or have done in Los Cabos.  I have chosen things on this list either because I have come across them while studying for certifications, personal experience, research, or client recommendations. Each of the item on the top 10 has a link, which will open a new window for more information.

 Let us know what you think of our list in the comments below the list. 

 1. Golf

From the moment Jack Nicklaus arrived on the scene in the early 1990s, Los Cabos has been in the midst of an unprecedented golfing boom. Four of its 18 courses were ranked among the World’s 100 Best Courses (U.S. excluded) by Golf Digest in 2018:  Querencia, Quivira, The Dunes at Diamante, and the Ocean Course at Cabo del Sol. That’s an astonishing percentage, especially when you consider the first course didn’t open until 1987.

 2. Diving

Have  you ever been diving with thousands of Mobula Rays, schools so massive they literally block out the sun? How about snorkeling with Mako sharks? Or encounters with gigantic, breaching humpback whales and their newborn calves?  Scuba diving in Los Cabos gives you the chance to do all of that and much more! We recently held a Girls that Scuba event in Los Cabos, with our awesome dive friends Dive Ninja Expeditions, and were so amazed at the life we saw underwater that we couldn’t wait to tell you about it!

 3. Shopping

Although first-time visitors to Los Cabos can’t help but notice the area’s oversupply of jewelry shops–Taxco silver and Mexican fire opals are the most sought after commodities–cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo do indeed offer a wide variety of shopping options, ranging from upscale clothing boutiques and art galleries to colorful flea markets and souvenir stalls.

 4. Sunset Cruise

I love being out on the water.  There’s nothing more peaceful to me then hearing the crash of waves and the melodic sounds of the ocean. I’ve always wanted to do a sunset cruise, and the perfect opportunity presented itself during my trip to Cabo. I was so excited when I discovered Cabo Sailing and the experiences they offer. 

 5. Fishing

That is how Zane Grey, master storyteller and IGFA Hall of Famer, described the sportfishing potential of Cabo San Lucas some 100 years ago. The southern tip of Baja California has a longstanding tradition of leaving its visiting anglers breathless, as anyone who has fished here already knows. No matter how experienced you are, these waters will change the way you think about fishing.

 6. San José del Cabo Art Walk

Often galleries will have special events such as “artist in attendance” or openings of new exhibitions. With the ever-growing popularity of the Art Walk, downtown San José as a whole is bustling on Thursday evenings but the heart, soul and sophistication of this weekly event lies within the borders of the Gallery District inside the galleries, located behind the church and main square.

 7. Mission San José del Cabo Church

While most travelers are familiar with Cabo San Lucas, few have heard about San José del Cabo, a tranquil destination just a few miles down the road that’s filled with history and beauty. Whether you make it your destination or take a day trip here from Cabo, there’s a variety of activities in San José del Cabo that showcase Mexico’s history and culture, and with the sunny San José del Cabo weather, getting out and exploring the cobblestone streets is a great addition to any vacation. Once you know where is San José del Cabo, it’s tempting to return to this peaceful town year after year.

 8. Whale Watching

Whale watching season in Cabo San Lucas can vary from year to year, but the whales pass through Cabo from Mid-December to April annually. We recommendtravelling to Cabo between January and March to have your best chance of seeing whales.

 9. El Arco de Cabo San Lucas

As one of the world’s most sought-after destinations for fun in the sun, Cabo San Lucas is home to countless fabulous sights and activities which will turn any vacation into a memory-filled experience you will cherish forever.  One of the most iconic of these attractions in Cabo is El Arco (Land’s End), the stunning stone arches emerging from the sea which have been flawlessly carved by nature and are no doubt the most common image associated with this amazing destination.  

 10. Wirikuta Botanical Cactus Garden

Can you feel the fuzzy spines along the rows of these cacti?

Visit the Wirikuta cactus gardens in Los Cabos, Mexico, and you can check out zillions of cactus plants.

Okay, not exactly zillions. But almost!
