Cuba: Go Now
1,000 Places to See Before You Die
Cuba is on everyone’s lips these days. Should you go now? My answer is a resounding “yes!” While Cuba may not be for everyone (read on), my April trip with International Expeditions was an experience simply not to be found elsewhere. Just 90 miles from our shores (and a hard-to-believe 45-minute flight from Miami), it offers up an experience that feels light years away. It is a place of romance and intrigue, at once elegant and downtrodden, uplifting and at times heartbreaking.

Top 12 Animals to Spot in the Galapagos Islands
Independent Traveler
For travelers who love wildlife, a Galapagos cruise should be at the tippy-top of your bucket list. Not only is this remote chain of Ecuadorean islands home to some of the world's rarest animals -- tropical penguins, anyone? -- but its relative isolation has also engendered a community of creatures who are strikingly unafraid of humans.

Cuba: Meet tobacco farmers, botanists and locals on 10-day trip

The Obama administration eased U.S. travel restrictions to Cuba by announcing last year it would grant licenses to selected travel companies to lead "people-to-people" tours to the Communist-led nation. The action meant Americans, who have been essentially prohibited from visiting the island for the past 50 years, could now travel to the country legally.

There's plenty of wildlife to see in Costa Rica, from brightly colored motmots (jungle birds) parrots, toucans and quetzals to manatees and monkeys. But sloths are the stars of International Expeditions' small-group tour of Costa Rica this summer, which includes a free two-day add-on in the capital San Jose.
