San Miguel at Night (photos)

A Night View of San Miguel de Allende 12 Days and 11 Nights in San Miguel After spending 12 days of exploring San Miguel de Allende in the center of Mexico, I never grew tired of this fantastic city’s character and vibe. I was happy to explore and meander the stone streets and have a giant liquado verde, a fresh squeezed and blended drink of orange, cactus, greens and ginger. I would sit in the park and watch the people moving about their lives. San Miguel de Allende After Dark However, after dark, families came out along with teams of...

Wedding Weekend in Los Cabos

Sure, I could spend the entire wedding weekend at the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar — what with the five pools, four fabulous restaurants, five equally great bars, the Cactus Spa, pristine beach… why not? But, there is a bit more to explore in Los Cabos. For future Cabo travelers, I’ve laid out a nice itinerary that includes dramatic sunsets, bucolic farms, and yes, all those pools. And, depending on the time of year – maybe even a whale or two. Rehearsal Dinner at Sunset da Mona Lisa There’s a reason that ‘sunset’ is in the name. I got the...

Actun Tunichil Muknal, Belize, Caves and Superstition

My guide, Jose, looked around at me and put his finger to his lips, “Shh, can you feel the spirits?” I held my breath. Human skeletons and cracked pottery lay scattered on the ground. Obsidian blades that were once used to pierce the tongue and genitals sat near a slate altar at the far wall. We were more than a kilometer underground. I was in Actun Tunichil Muknal, Belize’s “Cave of the Stone Sepulchre.” The Mayans thought caves to be the entrance to Xibalba, or “place of fright.” In order to ensure...

Our guests enjoyed a four-course dinner and we laughed as the sun slowly dipped into the Gulf of California. Later that night, we sat by the fire and chatted to the sound of lapping waves...

Volcano Boarding the Cerro Negro, Nicaragua

Volcano Boarding in Nicaragua The blazing sun beat down as I tried yet again to adjust my board to a comfortable position with little success. I stumbled over the jutting rocks and felt the heat of the sizzling black sand.

Cerro Negro, Nicaragua I was at the Cerro Negro a short drive away from the Nicaraguan city of León on a mission to appease my adrenaline cravings with a spot of volcano boarding....
