Where are you going?

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain

It’s the same old story, the wise adult tells the bright-eyed youth to “travel now, because once you get older it’s not as easy.”

I know plenty of 20-something year olds who tell me they wish they could travel and plan to as soon as they’ve got the degree, the job, the security and the “means”. Then there are the older folks who wish they could pick up and go but feel bogged down by their age, family commitments, work deadlines and mortgage payments. So, what are we really saying here? There is no good time to travel? I wholeheartedly disagree. In fact, I believe there is always a good time to travel…now! 

It’s just like anything you can try to plan for, waiting for the perfect situation, waiting, still waiting. All the while, life is passing you by.
Travel comes in all sizes and shapes, with destinations in our own home state or across the world. With penthouse to hostel price tags, there is something and somewhere for everyone, at every single stage in life. Don’t wait for later or wish you could turn back time. Go now. Live now. Travel for you, now. Because today’s now is gone tomorrow!

Top 3 Picks for Off-Peak Summer Destinations

Summer is one of the busiest travel times of the year and with that can come big price tags. But there is good news! The North American summer is low-season in many tropical locations, winter-sports meccas, and destinations on the other side of the hemisphere. And low-season, of course, typically equates to money-saving travel deals! Here are Cruise & Travel Master’s top 3 picks for off-peak summer destinations:

St. Lucia snorkeling

St. Lucia snorkeling

#1 -St. Lucia

Has lush, tropical St. Lucia always been on your bucket list? Go this summer. This lovely island has low-season prices, from cheap flights to discounted packages! One reason you can get to St. Lucia for less this season are all the new airline routes. Increased service includes JetBlue flights out of New York’s JFK, new summer service on Delta out of Atlanta, and new Saturday nonstop service from Newark on United starting this July.

According to Nerdin St. Rose, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for the St. Lucia Tourist Board, “St. Lucia’s summertime savings will attract vacationers of all ages. From family vacations to couples on their honeymoon, our romance and family-friendly offerings make St. Lucia the perfect getaway.”  And St. Lucia’s visitors’ bureau is raving about the huge savings on summer stays!

South African Safari

South African Safari

#2-South Africa

Find the “big five”—elephant, rhinoceros, lion, buffalo, and leopard—on safari in South Africa. And find the lowest prices when you go during the winter low-season. “Winter” in this case corresponds with the North American summer. During this time South Africa experiences cooler, less humid weather from June through September. South Africa’s winter is a fantastic time to go on safari, as many animals are especially easy to spot during this season.

One of the best ways to put together a wildlife-watching trip is to purchase a package. And those seeking safari packages in South Africa will find the prices during low-season months to be much more affordable!

Costa Rica waterfalls

#3 Costa Rica

Costa Rica in the summer can be rainy at times but that also means no fighting for a chair at the beach! May through June is considered the “green season,” which means that you might experience some drizzles and humidity. But with cheaper accommodations, activities, and flights to the country, coupled with less crowds, it’s a smart time to visit.

You can find very affordable flights from the U.S. to Costa Rica on Frontier Airlines, but only during summer. The airline operates seasonal service to San Jose through mid-August. The fares for nonstop flights from Denver to San Jose in July were seen to be as little as $470 round-trip. This is a lot cheaper than the fares from Denver in November, which usually require some sort of connection flight.

With more flights being added, you’ll find even more affordable options to Costa Rica—more routes, of course, means more competitive prices. JetBlue’s new service from Ft. Lauderdale to San Jose begins this June. Delta just added year-round flights from Los Angeles to San Jose and United started service from Chicago to San Jose. There are so many options!

For more information on scoring the best travel deals for your next trip, please contact our travel specialists at Cruise & Travel Masters!

Majestic Falls in Lebanon

Baatara Gorge Waterfall, Lebanon

Baatara Gorge Waterfall, Lebanon

Baatara Gorge Waterfall  is a natural wonder in Tannourine, Lebanon. It is truly a sight to lay your eyes on!

The waterfall descends the Baatara Pothole, located on the Lebanon Mountain Trail. Discovered in 1952, the waterfall drops 255 m into a cave of Jurassic limestone. The waterfall and accompanying sinkhole weren’t fully mapped until the 1980s. The cave is also known as the “Cave of the Three Bridges.” During the spring snow melt, a 90-100 meter cascade falls behind the three bridges and then down into the 250 meter chasm. The falls can only be seen during the months of March and April, when the snows are melting. So, now is the time to go!

During spring and early summer, the wildflowers are in full bloom making it a great time to hike the Tannourine Cedar Forest Reserve, part of the Lebanon Mountain Trail that takes adventurers to the immense and breathtaking Baatara Gorge Waterfall. For more information on traveling to Lebanon contact our travel specialists!
