Reading Time: 5 minutes This post covers our recommendations for Savannah, Georgia USA.
Reading Time: 3 minutes In this post we share photos from our time on the Old Savannah Historic Overview Trolley Tour. This locally owned-and-operated tour company has been voted Best Trolley Tour every year since 2003.
Savannah’s heat and humidity makes it difficult to walk all day, so this ride offers a 90-minute snapshot of the city’s best sights and historical markers. The trolley brings you to 16 stops through the heart of downtown Savannah, with a lively driver and period actors providing historical details set against beautiful squares, architecture and streets.
Reading Time: 4 minutes In this post we share photos from our time at Charleston Tea Garden, the only tea factory in the United States that fully produces and distributes tea. While it is a trek from downtown Charleston, this is a unique opportunity to see firsthand what 100% tea grown in America looks and tastes like.
Reading Time: 2 minutes In this post we share photos from Whitehaven Beach located on the Whitsunday Islands, an archipelago of 74 tropical islands located just 34 miles (54 kilometers) off the Queensland coast in Northeast Australia.
Adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef, Whitehaven Beach is Australia’s most photographed and its swoon-worthy white silica sand is an idyllic setting for Instagram shots and relaxation alike.
Reading Time: 5 minutes In this post we share photos from The Thompson Hotel in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Situated on Playa La Ropa, the hotel is part of Hyatt’s luxury property portfolio and was named “The Most Romantic Resort in Mexico.”
Reading Time: 3 minutes In this post we share photos from Playa la Ropa in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. This mile-long fine grain white sand beach is lined with coconut trees, and the hotels and restaurants on the shore are nicely integrated into the surrounds as to not disrupt the tranquility.
Playa la Ropa still maintains its roots as a fisherman’s village but offers the modern comforts for a beautiful walk or stay in the area. For this reason, it is a must-visit.
Reading Time: 5 minutes In this post we share the history of Zihuatanejo, Mexico and photos from “El Centro”, Zihua’s downtown area.
While travelers may know of Acapulco, Guerrero state’s glitzier resort hub, few know of Zihuatanejo, a bucolic Mexican fishing village that offers fine-grain white sand beaches with the Sierra Madre mountainous terrain as backdrop.
Zihuatanejo is still unspoiled by tourism and offers the comforts of nicer home stays and well-integrated hotels. Pair your trip with a day in nearby Ixtapa for a true escape.
