The Pacific port and tiny town of Puerto Caldera is well-situated for many of Costa Rica's top attractions and most popular cities, including San Jose, Jaco and Puntarenas. This tropical city is located off of the Gulf of Nicoya and its unspoilt, natural beauty is a true spectacle. The vast rainforest around Puerto Caldera spreads from the coastline up into breath-taking mountain ranges where rivers, waterfalls, parks and wildlife preserves are all waiting to be discovered.
Follow in the footsteps of The Beach Boys and fall in love with incredible Hawaii.
Quintessentially Hawaiian, gorgeous Lahaina blends a mix of history, beauty and modern-day delights, creating a wonderfully charming, and rewarding, destination for any visitor to breathtaking Maui Island. Situated on Maui’s picturesque west coast, the town was once Hawaii’s capital and an important part of the whaling boom in the 1800s. Now, while the days of whale trading are long gone, Lahaina remains a symbol of the past and features on the U.S Register of Historic Places. With every turn, especially within ‘Old Lahina’, you really get a feel for the history here, as around 55 acres of the town are designated historic districts. It’s all easily explored on foot, with highlights aplenty to discover; take a stroll along lively Front Streets, one of America’s ‘Top Ten Greatest Streets’, and see sights such as the U.S. Seamen’s Hospital, Hale Paahao (Lahaina Prison), the Pioneer Inn on the historic trail. Aside from its attractions from centuries past, Lahaina also offers a taste of authentic island culture and beauty – as you might expect from somewhere found in one of the world’s most spectacular archipelagos. You can immerse yourself in Maui’s way of life, tasting locally grown and sourced produce at Lahaina’ fine restaurants; catch performance of traditional dance and music at a seaside luau; head out for a volcanic hiking adventure; or simply indulge in pure relaxation at the dream-like beaches.
A mixture of enthralling cultural attractions and magnificent natural phenomena, Hilo offers some of the best sights in Hawaii.
Raiatea, which translates to ‘faraway heaven’, certainly lives up to its name. The island boasts breathtaking scenes of lush jungle interiors, volcanic peaks – including 3337ft-high Mount Tafatua and Mount Olympus, where rare and scared Tiare Apetati flowers grow – and extensive coastal lagoons offering stunning seascapes of azure blue waters and coral reefs teeming with colourful flora and fauna. Beyond the island’s abundant beauty, Raiatea is also rich with cultural and historical importance. It’s believed to be the original birthplace of Polynesia, and where the great Polynesian migration to Hawaii and New Zealand began many centuries ago. Today the island is a pilgrimage for those who wish to retrace the historic steps of their ancestors. Amongst the awe-inspiring landscapes, many fascinating historical and archaeological treasures await discovery, including Marae Taputapuatea – the largest outdoor temple in French Polynesia – and Hauviri Marae, home of the famous Te-papa-tea-ia-ruea sacred stone.

Spread out across the hillsides and beautiful northern shores of Papua New Guinea’s picturesque Milne Bay, Alotau assumes a rarely visited, undiscovered feel. Visitors to Alotau can connect with nature amongst the town’s scenic surroundings and fauna-rich waters; unwind at the untrodden volcanic black sand beaches; and immerse themselves in authentic local culture. Alotau natives are proud of Papua New Guinea’s age-old heritage and traditions, which are celebrated at the not-to-be-missed Alotau Cultural Festival – an extravaganza of tribal music, dance and chanting. Also worth visiting for a taste of traditional life is Alotau’s bustling town market. Although Alotau is relaxed and laid back today, it was an entirely different place just a few decades ago. In World War II, Alotau was on many occasions at the centre of fierce and bloody battles between Australian Allied soldiers and Japanese troops. It was here where the Japanese suffered its first decisive defeat in the Pacific Theatre. The Australian War Memorial offers a detailed description of the Battle of Milne Bay, while the Turnbull Memorial – a short distance from Alotau – commemorates the death of Australian Squadron Leader Peter St George Turnbull, who was killed during the battle.

At the port, you’ll notice how centuries-old trading traditions – represented by high-prowed Bugis schooners and historic architecture – co-exist with the marvels of modern day commerce and engineering, from cruise ships to tower blocks, highlighting the importance of Celukan Bawang as an industrial centre. Beyond the port however, it only takes a short journey to discover the dream-like scenes that are synonymous with Bali; head north for exotic black sand beaches, or south to indulge your wanderlust at postcard-perfect white sand stretches.
