  6. 6. HUATULCO, MEXICO • On the Pacific Coast of Mexico, southeast of Acapulco, Huatulco is a 22-mile stretch of coastline with nine magnificent bays and 36 beaches. Great for fishing, Huatulco also offers true peace and tranquility on its miles of secluded beaches, tucked away and waiting to be discovered. Many of the bays are only accessible by sea, and a perfect day excursion on the tranquil waters is awaiting. • For water sports fans, Huatulco offers deep-sea fishing and snorkeling. Land lovers can take in the environment by bike or on horseback. There's plenty of tennis, an 18-hole golf course and two shopping areas on Tangolunda Bay. Take a day trip and visit La Entrega, a protected marine park with a long coral reef and natural aquarium with more than 700 species of colorful marine life. Diving enthusiasts can enjoy the reefs off Chacahua Bay and La Montosa Islands.
  7. 7. HUATULCO, MEXICO • Today you'll find Huatulco is still one of Mexico’s most relaxed destinations. The centerpiece of Huatulco’s charm is a series of nine bays, encompassing 36 beaches and numerous inlets and coves, each with its own unique setting and ecology. All are noted for their dream-like beaches of golden sand and crystal clear water, yet the bays remain delightfully unspoiled, sometimes accessible only by boat. • In Huatulco, you'll find your senses drawn momentarily away from the ocean by another of the area's greatest charms: coffee. Close to the beautiful beaches are the coffee plantations of Pluma Hidalgo where one of Mexico's best coffees is produced. The unmistakable coffee aroma, the surprising landscapes of Oaxaca’s sierra mountains and the people working this beautiful land offer you a warm and delicious welcome.
  8. 8. HUATULCO, MEXICO • What to do after a day of sun and fun at Bahias de Huatulco? The evenings are cooler and ideal for a relaxing stroll, refreshing yourself for the adventures of the following day. At Huatulco, most visitors opt for a visit to La Crucecita, the picturesque little town located at the heart of Bahia Santa Cruz, where the warm and spontaneous atmosphere of Oaxaca’s coast can be felt first-hand. Tours depart from La Crucecita to the other main bays of Huatulco, making it a central point on any visit to the coast. You'll also be in the ideal place to sample some of the region’s traditional dishes, from seafood and fish to traditional Oaxacan recipes, finishing off your meal with a local mezcal, the traditional – and strong – regional drink made from agave. A delicious ice cream or a fruit drink can accompany you on one of the most enjoyable missions of any visit to La Crucecita: handcraft shopping.

  40. 40. PUNTA CANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC • Occupying the eastern portion of the lush island of Hispaniola, the Dominican Republic vacation offers a vibrant travel destination whose endless charms bring the island’s admirers back to vacation time and again. The flawless beaches and sparkling cobalt waters of the Dominican Republic are nature’s gift to visitors on vacation. • And whether your vacation includes enjoying the unspoiled beauty of the Dominican Republic from a sailboat, surfboard or horseback, you’ll be enthralled with the beauty of your vacation experience. • There’s plenty to explore while on vacation on the charismatic island of the Dominican Republic, where old world flavors and long-standing colonial traditions rest side by side with the contemporary rhythms of the Caribbean. • And for the truly inspired, be certain to take in a baseball game the national passion of Dominican Republic.
  41. 41. DOMINICAN REPUBLIC Language Spoken: Spanish is the official language of the Dominican Republic. English is spoken by tourism staff, however, knowing a little basic Spanish is particularly helpful in the interior. Signs and menus are generally in Spanish. Water: Drink only bottled water. Never drink water from the tap unless it has been thoroughly boiled. Fresh, bottled water is available almost everywhere on the island but if you venture off the beaten track you may have to stock up. Look for the words filtrada and purificada on the bottle's label. Security: Most areas of Puerto Plata are safe for visitors but precautions should be taken, especially at night and in the poorer sections of Santo Domingo and Sosua. Avoid unmarked street taxis and hustlers who attempt to offer their services as guides. Pickpockets, street hustlers, and muggers target tourists. Do not leave valuables unattended on the beach or in cars. Large amounts of money and other valuables are usually best kept in a hotel safe.
