Cuba travel guide

Beaches · Historic Walking Areas · Landmarks
The largest island in the Caribbean, Cuba lies just 140 km (90 mi) south of Florida and captivates a growing number of Western visitors with its tropical landscapes and cultural attractions. Sightseeing in Cuba inevitably begins in Havana, a city of photogenic architecture, lively nightlife, and a passion for baseball. The country's smaller colonial towns usually feature central squares, ideal places to meet the locals under wrought-iron street lamps. Savvy visitors escape the cities during their Cuba holidays, devoting plenty of time to the country's charming countryside, where you can get the feel for this diverse land by conversing with friendly tobacco farmers and small-scale fruit producers.

State of Amazonas travel guide

4.3
Theaters · Bodies of Water · Beaches
One of the least densely populated Brazilian regions despite its size, State of Amazonas occupies a huge section of the tropical forest zone irrigated by the Amazon River. Largest city Manaus serves as the starting point for most State of Amazonas tours, offering plenty of urban attractions, modern amenities, and easy links to the surrounding area. Adventurers interested in getting lost in the wilderness during their State of Amazonas holiday can visit some of the world's biggest nature reserves, where they can hike, fish, camp, and sail without ever running into another tourist. Using seeds, wood, and vines, local tribes living in the region's forests produce baskets, ornaments, and hammocks, all of which make excellent souvenirs.

Patagonia travel guide

Bodies of Water · Geologic Formations · National Parks
Sparsely populated and largely untamed, Patagonia is equally appealing to photographers, nature lovers, adrenaline seekers, and fans of long road trips through desolate regions far from the noise and pollution of big cities. Many Patagonia vacations start in thriving Neuquen, the region's largest center and a major hub of Argentina's fruit production. Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, is another important stop on most Patagonia tours, serving as a base for excursions across the region and trips to Antarctica. While its urban centers provide modern comforts, Patagonia's main appeal remains its vast, remote stretches, crossed by a network of paved roads linking old oil boomtowns with ancient forests and nature reserves.

French Guiana travel guide

Museums · Tourist Spots · Wildlife Areas
The only part of South America still governed by an overseas country, the tropical, rainforest-covered French Guiana is the second largest region of France. The department was used by France as a penal colony in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with several islands that you can visit today used as prisons where inmates were forced to catch butterflies. On a trip to French Guiana, you can witness different ecosystems, diverse plant and animal life, as well a mix of cultures influenced by French colonization and a large immigrant population.
