Thang Thien Waterfall Ecotourism Resort – Ideal Destination to Relax

It is quite difficult to find a fresh, clean and airy palce escape from the smoky, dusty and stuffy atmosphere during the weekend when living in a crowded urban area.

Fish Tales & Sailing Adventures in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

I met Nemo the other day. Well, actually it was his cousin. Instead of a cute bright orange and white striped Clownfish, this little guy was a vibrant yellow and turquoise with dark stripes. It swam right up to my snorkel mask, in my mind to say, “Hi!” Really, what it was probably thinking was “bug off,” given that it was a…

Riding the El Yunque Jungle Trail in Puerto Rico

Recently in Puerto Rico I attended the Saborea (savor), a “culinary extravaganza.” The event is a series of tastings and parties that culminates at Escambron Beach, ocean side under enormous tents. One tent showcased tastings from island chefs and Puerto Rican rum. Yum! The other tent was set up as a food theatre where two chefs had 45 minutes to create their own signature dish that was then judged side by side by a panel. The chefs were either Food…

Birding in India's Corbett National Park

Watching different kinds of birds and their activities enchants many of us even if we're not be avid bird watchers. The colours of their feathers, the shape of their beaks, their chirping sounds, are all quite interesting to witness. Corbett National Park, being situated in between the Himalayan foothills and the Indo-Gangetic plains, offers an excellent habitat for all kinds of birds, and therefore, this activity can be undertaken while one is staying at Corbett resorts. The forests,…

Belize, a Tiny Country With a Lot to It

When one thinks of Belize, most likely the first thought to come to mind is the fabled Blue Hole, and the world’s second largest barrier reef, second only to the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia. But the tiny nation surrounded by its big brother to the north, Mexico and Guatemala to the west and south, is an eco-travelers, adventurer enthusiasts dream.

See the Forest Above the Trees on a Costa Rica Aerial Adventure

Suspended on cables gliding through the tops of giant tropical trees, amid hidden, dripping, hanging gardens full of plants and animals in the rainforest, is a pretty cool experience. Rainforest trees are tall, really tall, even towering up to more than 100 feet high. The microcosm of life happening at this level is abundant and amazing, and not often seen.

What to See and Do Around India's Corbett National Park

A visit to India's Corbett National Park is only a two day affair, provided you are not planning to go for excursions, which are, if not more, as exciting and enchanting as the jeep safari in Corbett Park.

There are so many other places to be seen around the Corbett National Park that one is tempted to increase the stay duration at Corbett resorts by another two days at least. Hence, if you’re planning a four-five days…

In the Galapagos, the Art of Slumbering Under the Stars

My God, it wasn't just your run-of-the-mill gorgeous outdoor destination, it was a freaking, sparsely populated island in the Galapagos! "How could you people walk away from the sky and ensconce yourselves in walls. For chrissakes, come outside and sleep!"

Those were the thoughts that passed through my mind as I dragged my mattress off the rustic, yet sturdy, hand-cut, wooden bed frame and dragged it across the floor of the cutest little cabin I'd ever been in, and slammed it down…

Tanzania's Singita Grumeti Game Reserves: Exotic Splurge of a Lifetime

Many of us have been fortunate enough to have been on safari in Africa - some of us more than once. An African safari is something that should be on everyone's bucket list.  I have been fortunate enough to have been on a hot-air balloon over the Masai Mara - truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But all safaris, safari lodges, and games reserves are clearly not all alike. Once in a while you just have to live like a star.

But even if you're not Brad and Angelina, but just have…
