UNITED STATES

A thousand incredible travel experiences, from the Southwest's desert's incredible natural sculptures to the most bustling Northeast metropolis to Alaska's stunning glaciers to the breathtaking splendor of the Hawaiian islands.

America's diversity of travel opportunities has never been more incredible, from sea to shining sea.

 

MARTHA'S VINEYARD

Whether you cart surfboards or pack the family wagon with fishing rods for a few weeks on Chappaquiddick, a few hours spent in the warm sand will surely recharge your batteries – just ask the Vineyarders who have been returning for generations.

 

Clambakes, terrific B&B’s, fish markets and fishing boats, bicycles, antiques, clamming, kayaking, tucked away rentals, sailing, hours of baseball on the beach, football in the waves and Mad Martha’s. The ice cream at MM’s alone is worth the trip

“The Pacific is my home ocean; I knew it first, grew up on its shore, collected marine animals along the coast.

I know its moods, its color, its nature.”

YUCATAN

Chichen Itza at dawn, in time to see the sunrise crest over

the top is worth every lost wink. Arriving at this magnificent

archipelago of ancient Mayan structures in the dark, but in time

for sunrise — just you and your guide – will leave anyone

energized and rejuvenated by the gods of this wondrous

structure. Follow up with a leisurely breakfast under the trees, an

adventurous swim at Catherwood’s cenote Xocempich and a first

rate tequila tasting.

 

The number of meticulously restored haciendas will never leave you wanting for a place to lay your head or explore the Mayan traditions past and present. Have we tempted you yet? No? Well, how about a magical performance at Hacienda Tamchen by the celebrated artist James Turrell, accompanied by composer Phillip Glass?

 

Let us help you explore the wonders of Yucatan.

 
 

SOUTH AMERICA

South America offers imposing waterfalls, the Amazon, Patagonia, Machu Picchu and Galapagos, as well as the extraordinarily festive cities of Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Quito and Lima. Machu Picchu, Cuzco and The Sacred Valley are only recently accessible. For a truly breathtaking adventure, add Lake Titicaca to the mix. From there you can cross into Bolivia in a grass boat!

 

The archipelago comprising Galapagos is rich in diversity of species, as well as a variety of means by which to experience this equatorial gem. Don’t let the amblyrhynchus cristatus iguana frighten you away, he shares his home with Giant Tortoises and Blue-footed Boobies, to mention a few!

 

Santiago, Chile – nestled in a large basin bordered by the Andes – offers your heart’s desire within a two hour radius. Skiing? Hang gliding? A sun drenched beach? You guessed it, two hours away. However, should you choose to explore Santiago, she will steal your heart in less than two minutes!
