Mérida was named the American Capital of Culture for a second time in 2017. Here’s what makes it so special and how to enjoy the city in a thoughtful way.
Go beyond Cancún’s all-inclusive resorts, Tulum’s ‘eco-chic’ and Mérida’s haciendas. Experience the vibrant life of the Maya, who still live in Yucatán, speak the language of their ancestors and maintain the old ways.
Just trains – no planes, no automobiles. Travel green on one of US epic rail journeys: LA to Seattle on the Coast Starlight. Break free of congested airports and freeways. See the West Coast one of the most spectacular of all train routes in North America.
Nicaragua is a strong competitor for the title of the new ecotourism hotspot. It’s jewel – Granada – is the perfect blend of nature and culture. No trip to the “Land of Lakes and Volcanoes” is complete without a few days of soaking up the colonial charms of the city.
