Explore the Grand Canyon at Night

Sunsets at Grand Canyon National Park are gorgeous, but you don’t have to call it a day when the sun goes down. The canyon’s high elevation, dry air, and dark skies make for spectacular stargazing. Learn more about the best spots and times for viewing the beautiful night sky.

What are some must-do activities in Puerto Vallarta?

At any time of the year, one of the most pleasant and inspiring experiences you will have in Puerto Vallarta is a simple one: a sunset walk along the Malecón, the pedestrians-only waterfront promenade. Fabulous tropical sunset colors in the sky, dozens of quirky and beautiful modern art sculptures along the promenade, sand sculptures below on the narrow beach, and hundreds of crazily amusing people to watch. Free, fun, and unforgettable. I recommend taking a day trip to the Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens, an hour south of town. Wander the lush, lovely gardens, then swim in the river than runs through them.

If you could only recommend one beach in Los Cabos, which would it be?

Playa del Amor (Lover’s Beach) is the only beach in the world to border the Sea of Cortez on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Take a water taxi from Playa El Medano or the marina in Cabo San Lucas, or rent a kayak and paddle yourself. Bring snorkeling gear and a picnic lunch for a perfect afternoon in the sun.

Where do you recommend eating in Belize?

Ambergris Caye has the reputation for being more "touristy" than other parts of Belize, but it also has the best restaurants and most delicious food options in the country. From Ruby's Deli (where locals line up every morning to grab fresh-baked, stuffed johnny cakes) to Latin specialties like pupusas grilled by street vendors, from Elvi's Kitchen serving the best shrimp curry I've ever had in the Caribbean to fresh seafood eateries like Caramba, San Pedro is a foodie's paradise. Throw in upscale, intimate fine dining spots like Casa Picasso or the beachfront Blue Water Grill, and it's no exaggeration to say that San Pedro is Belize's best all-around food destination. The Cayo District is a close second, with the best farmers market in the country and easy access to fresh vegetables, fruits, and cheeses.

Any advice for visiting Los Cabos during peak season?

Don’t be afraid to leave the resort and venture out on your own. Take the bus from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo to browse the art galleries and walk the organic farmers market on Saturday. You can also rent a car and drive to Todos Santos or the East Cape for the day to see the quieter side of southern Baja.
