With a population of only about 125 people, Little Cayman, an island of coral and sand that just got electricity in 1990, is an absolute paradise of beaches, lagoons, lush foliage and amazing diving. Jacques Cousteau declared Little Cayman's waters to be among the top three diving sites in the world. Reefs, shipwrecks and Little Cayman's Bloody Bay Wall, considered the Caribbean's most sensational wall dive, create unforgettable dips. Walk or rent a bike to get around the ten-mile-long island.
In Nuevo Vallarta, you can lounge on the golden-sand beaches of Banderas Bay… or take an ATV tour through the nearby Sierra Madre jungle. A local water park has great twisting slides and sea lion shows… or you could treat the kids to a memorable swim with dolphins. (It'll make for a great "What I did over summer holiday" report.)
You won’t find superstores or theme parks in Corolla. What you will find is a slow-paced holiday destination with vast, isolated stretches of beach. Corolla is the perfect place to gear down, relax and forget about your hurried life back home.
While quiet dinners and strolls on the beach are mainstays of Corolla’s lifestyle, other more action-oriented recreation options include kayak tours, Jet Ski rentals, deep-sea fishing charters, and go-karting. No visit to Corolla is complete without climbing the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, a 158-foot high structure built in 1875 that still flashes at 20-second intervals to warn ships hugging the chain of barrier islands. Next on the must see list is the Whalehead Club, a 21,000-square-foot Art Nouveau home that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
A truly unique experience in Corolla is taking a tour of the Spanish Mustang Reserve, where you can see wild Spanish Mustang horses grazing in their natural habitat. Horse lovers will also enjoy the Corolla Wild Horse Museum located within the restored schoolhouse of Corolla Village. Kids have an opportunity to paint their own wild Colonial Spanish Mustang.
For some great family fun, play the Grass Course, a miniature golf course on all natural grass.
Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, has the tall buildings, neon lights and crowded streets of many cities, plus a multicultural Caribbean character and a home-grown calypso soundtrack. The best-known event is the flamboyant pre-Lenten Carnival. Among the city's other offerings are cricket and football matches, year-round festivals, a botanic garden, malls, an art and history museum and historic buildings. Entertainment options abound, but be cautious after dark.

Argentina's top beach resort town, Mar del Plata boasts 10 miles of sandy beaches, from family-oriented La Perla in the north to very popular Bristol in the centre and sophisticated Faro in the south. Regardless of the beach, expect very dense crowds, particularly in the summer months. Once an elite enclave, it now attracts visitors of all budgets.
