Before we dive into it, here is a quick story about Costa Rica that you will enjoy.
A Hotel on a Boeing 727
Window or corridor? Let’s discover one of the most amazing hotel rooms in the world. Can you imagine sleeping in the cabin of an airplane (without ever leaving the ground)? Then join us in Costa Rica, where the Costa Verde Hotel lets you sleep in a fully-equipped and meticulously designed two-bedroom suite in the fuselage of a Boeing 727 that rises 15 meters to offer magnificent views over jungle and ocean, making you feel as if you were flying.
In its previous life, the plane transported jetsetters under the banners of South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines until it ceased operations at the San Jose airport, from where it was recovered and transported to the jungles of Manuel Antonio National Park.

Have a good trip!
Discovery without limits
The United States is famous for its iconic attractions and spectacular scenery, but its best attribute is its people.
Iconic cities? National parks? Scenic byways? Movie-like landscapes? Sports, music and food? The U.S. has it all. In fact, in a country so varied – and with so many possibilities – the hardest thing to do is decide where to begin. The good thing is that there is always room to keep exploring new areas. Whatever the final decision, success is assured.
Bergen and the West Fjords
Norway’s second-largest city, Bergen, combines World Heritage-listed historical monuments with innovative fashion, excellent restaurants and a booming music scene. Bergen is the gateway to some of Norway’s most famous fjords, such as Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest, and Hardanger Fjord, home to the famous Trolltunga mountain plateau.
Many of the fjords have arms that are just as beautiful, but less crowded. Another good idea is to travel to the village of Flåm aboard its famous train; it’s one of the most beautiful train rides in the world. And if you’re looking for fun in an incomparable natural setting, visit Voss or Nordfjord.
Land of contrasts and colors
In the Maghreb, to the north, lies a land full of contrasts and colors. It’s a land that smells of jasmine, dates and freshly brewed tea. You have the blues of the Mediterranean Sea, the golds of the Sahara desert, the greens of the oases and the coppers of the Atlas Mountains.
Tunisia is also known for its open and modern society, which has made it a long-running hotspot for European tourists. Hospitality, history and incredible landscapes are the attributes that have made it such a popular destination over the years.
Phuket, open to tourists
If you are vaccinated and feel like returning to Phuket this summer — or visiting the Land of Smiles for the first time — you can now do so.
After enjoying a week in what is known as the “Pearl of the Andaman” (thanks to its idyllic beaches with turquoise water, its hospitality, its gastronomy and its varied cultural offerings), you can also travel to five other provinces open to tourism: Krabi, Phang Nga, Koh Samui, Pattaya and Chiang Mai.
It’s got it all
Mexico has an array of options for travelers who want to see it all, be it a desert, a forest, a beach, or a volcano. So how can you fully immerse yourself in its destinations?
You might wander through colonial cities like Morelia, Querétaro, and San Miguel de Allende, take a trip to the past in its Archaeological Zones, discover its culture and traditions through its Pueblos Magicos, or marvel at the postcards offered at its beaches, coastal towns and unexplored interior.
