There is something for everyone in Hawaii. Not surprisingly, it’s a beach lovers’ paradise. But there are also many places to explore, tourist attractions to see and various sporting activities available here.

Kauai, which is also known as the Garden Island, is a great destination for those keen on outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing, golfing, wind surfing, horseback riding and scuba diving. But if you’re looking to do something less energetic, you can simply chill out and sunbathe on one of Kauai’s delightful beaches.

The island of Oahu is another great Hawaiian destination. Here you will find Honolulu, the capital of the state of Hawaii. Honolulu itself boasts plenty to see and do, including museums, historic buildings, art galleries, restaurants and bars. While you are there, try to visit Iolani Palace. Also in Honolulu is the Ala Moana Center, the world famous shopping centre which is a must-visit for all those who are looking to enjoy some retail therapy!

While you are staying on Oahu, you should also check out the world famous Waikiki Beach, which is an ideal place to learn how to surf.

Molokai is another delightful Hawaiian island which is well worth a visit. If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and want to just relax during your holiday, this is the ideal holiday destination. You will find peace and tranquility in Molokai, which is also known as The Friendly Island.

If you are a keen golfer, you should head to the island of Lanai, as it has two championship golf courses! And on Lanai you can see Keahiakawelo (also known as Garden of the Gods), which is an amazing landscape with various shapes and sizes of rocks and boulders.

There’s also the Hawaiian island of Maui. This is a good location to go humpback whale watching. You should be able to see the whales around Maui from mid-December to mid-May each year. You can take a boat trip and, hopefully, will catch a sighting of these incredible creatures during your visit here.

Hawaii’s Big Island, meanwhile, is a great island to explore. Here you can visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which is a popular tourist attraction.

Not surprisingly, Hawaii is a perfect wedding and honeymoon destination. This is a truly beautiful part of the world to get married and to spend an idyllic honeymoon, too.

But whether you’re planning on tying the knot or not, Hawaii makes a superb location for any holiday, whether it’s a family vacation, a sporting trip or a more relaxing break.

These beautiful Hawaiian islands have something to offer everyone. And no matter which island you choose, you are likely to have a fun and relaxing time during your holiday.

No one is too old nor too young to enjoy a Mexico vacation.  Mexico vacations are ideal for solo travelers, honeymooners, married couples, and families.  While the world is full of romantic destinations, Mexico has much to recommend it as the place where you and your special someone should spend your next vacation.


Mexico’s romantic escapes have much to offer.  Their visitors can bask in the warm, balmy, tropical climate at almost any time of year.  The weather is what makes Mexico vacations and ideal choice for those seeking to escape the cold northern winters, and her brilliant vegetation, sparkling white beaches, and turquoise seas create the perfect backdrop for a romantic interlude.


One of the most delightful aspects of a romantic Mexican getaway is that her seaside resorts, unlike many US hotels which are not directly on the beach, allow their guests direct beach access.  A stay at Zihuatenejo, for example, lets Mexican beachgoers experience the best in resort luxury combined with the serenity of a secluded beach village.  Nestled against the backdrop of the Sierra Madre, this small town on the Pacific Ocean offers a full slate of water sports, including scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, and cruises to more remote beaches.


Traveling as a family in Mexico need not eliminate the romance from Mexico vacations.  Children are considered a national treasure in Mexico, and your children will be greeted warmly wherever they go.  Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, and La Paz are all great Mexican vacation destinations for families.  Your children will need to carry adequate documentation, and you can learn exactly what is required by visiting the US Department of State website at and clicking on International Travel.


When selecting a destination for your romantic Mexican getaway, look for an area where you can enjoy your favorite activities.  The coastal resorts abound in opportunities for Island cruising, scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, and even cliff diving for the very brave.  You can swim with the dolphins at Chakalal Bay, or for $20 enjoy an all day horseback ride to the crater of the Paricutin Volcano, where you will have to make the final 1 1/2 mile journey on foot.


If you want a permanent memento of your romantic stay in Mexico, visit Queretaro and shop for one of the locally mined opals.  Along with southern Australia, Queretaro is one of the two places in the world where opals are commercially mined.  Visit El Artesano, a small shop whose owner hand-carves miniatures of opal. 


While you are in Queretaro, soak up its romantic atmosphere with a stroll around the historic center.  If you are staying there on a Sunday night, visit the Jardin Zenea, Queretaro’s most popular public square, where you and your sweetie can join the crowds dancing to band music from the 40s, 50s, and 60s.


Whether you choose to enjoy a romantic getaway at a Mexico beach or you choose another location, you are sure to enjoy your trip.  With all that it has to offer, Mexico can easily be considered a lovers paradise.
