Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA
Originally a fort built by the U.S. Army in 1838, during the Second Seminole War, Ft. Lauderdale has little left of its warlike past. Instead the city welcomes visitors with broad beaches and an easy pace of life, plus convenient air and water connections that make the city a perfect place to begin or end a cruise.
Appearing as emerald streaks in a sapphire sea, the two islands of Bimini—North Bimini and South Bimini—are just 50 miles from Miami, but just far enough to have garnered some lore and legend. The isles were used as a secret storehouse for rum-runners during prohibition, and Ernest Hemingway made no secret of spending time here knocking back libations and trolling for the Bahamas’ world-famous game fish. Today, this tropical locale is a favorite escape for vacationers seeking a laid-back pace, astounding natural scenery, a drink or two of rum and a dip in clear waters.
Charming Cartagena is one of the most fascinating towns in South America. The old city, almost completely surrounded by lagoons, bays and the Caribbean Sea, is still girded by its 17th-century fortifications. Once these guarded the gold and treasures of the New World, bound for Spain; now they shelter ornate churches and convents, the dramatic Palace of the Inquisition, and other historic gems.
Caldera, Costa Rica
Superlatives abound when describing Costa Rica, one of Latin America’s most peaceful countries. Often called the “Switzerland of Central America,” it does not possess an army and boasts a stable democratic government as well as a high literacy rate. Strategically located between two great continents, it has been the benefactor of great cultural contributions from each. In addition to discovering its fascinating traditions, visitors to Costa Rica will be welcomed by friendly people and will enjoy superb scenery and an ideal climate.
Your visit to Nicaragua’s northwest puts you in the center of cultural, intellectual and outdoor plentitude. Just south of port is León, an energetic, colonial city full of fine museums, chic eateries and architectural treasures, including the Basílica de la Asunción, the largest cathedral in Central America. Off the coast, huge waves draw fearless surfers. Edging shore, boggy wetlands bound by sandy beaches invite nature lovers to look for birds and nesting turtles. Farther inland, volcanic peaks draw trekkers and photographers to experience a landscape shaped by the collision of two tectonic plates, creating a display of earth’s primordial power in miles of lava and ash, smoke and rock, crater lakes and steamy hot springs.
Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala
Pronounced “ket-ZAL” by the local people, Puerto Quetzal is named for a rare and magnificent bird of the same name who sports iridescent tail feathers three feet long. So revered by Guatemalans, this bird’s graceful image has appeared on the national coins, the country’s flag, stately coats of arms and prized stamps. Sightings today are rare, for man has encroached on the bird’s natural environment.
Spectacularly situated where rugged mountains meet the sea, legendary Acapulco is the gathering place for pleasure-seekers from around the world. Considered Mexico’s capital of fun, it is its most glamorous Pacific resort. Outdoor activities abound, from aquatic sports to golf at emerald green courses. Golden beaches await you and glistening seas beckon swimming, snorkeling and surfing enthusiasts. Thrill at the sight of the La Quebrada cliff-divers cutting into azure seas or browse through an array of boutiques that boast treasures of silver, fine lacquers and pottery. After dark, the sound of mariachi music and a vibrant disco beat fills the air while horse-drawn carriages clatter along the colorful streets. It is hard to believe that not so long ago this resort town was an inconspicuous fishing village, but secrets such as Acapulco are hard to keep.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Cabo San Lucas is nestled on the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean meet the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. Commanding rock formations, timeless desert and a translucent sea provide a compelling introduction to this tranquil resort town. Here, mile upon mile of golden sandy coves dot the shoreline while marlin and sailfish frolic in the waters offshore. Laze on a deserted beach, explore the undersea world or discover bustling shops and markets for tempting treasures such as silver, jewelry and wooden sculptures.
Los Angeles/San Pedro, California, USA
Spectacular natural surroundings combined with the vitality of a creative and artistic community make Los Angeles one-of-a-kind. Sunshine, majestic palm trees and the sandy beaches of the Pacific share the spotlight with L.A.’s glamorous movie industry and its world-famous celebrities. Formally founded in 1781, it is now one of the world’s largest metropolitan centers.
