If I had to say there was one can’t miss spot for a weekend get away from Cartagena, it would have to be Tayrona National Park, located just north of Santa Marta. Colombia’s most well known national park, Tayrona offers beautiful scenery with the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range running into the Caribbean Sea and mostly unspoiled beaches.
From classic car rides to the quaint restaurants of the old town, to the beaches and the museums, Havana has a lot to offer. And many of these activities are free!
Located on Belize’s largest island, Ambergris Caye, is Belize’s most popular destination — San Pedro. Thousands of visitors flock to this tropical paradise every year, so why does it seem like such a little known paradise?

While many know about Bermuda’s famous pink sand beaches, this historic island has a recipe for so much more than just a typical beach vacation. First, throw in some interesting colonial history and architecture, as Bermuda was a British colony dating from the 1600’s. Then, mix in some fascinating underwater adventures, from snorkeling and scuba diving to the world-class science and marine life museum. Next, add a dash of delicious dining experiences including world-famous chefs. Finally, blend in a variety of uniquely fashionable clothing styles at amazing shops all across the island. The finished product is what makes Bermuda special. Once you experience this island, you’ll never want to leave.

If you think about it, Pirate Travel is a completely sensible topic for posting about. It’s always good to get back to our (ancestral??) roots and remember that they were the original pioneers of the randomised, inquisitive and adventurous ideals of travel.

So here’s to tracing the footsteps (or peg steps!) of history by outlining a few treasures of pirateyness left unplundered around the world.
