Planning a trip to Canada and figuring out an itinerary may seem monumental due to the size and geographical layout of the country. Bordered by three oceans, the Canadian motto “from sea to sea to sea” becomes more relevant when you start planning a cross country tour. Most travelers with a limited amount of time tend to focus on one area of the country. This is a good idea unless you incorporate some long distance internal flights. Canada stretches more than 5,500 kilometers from east to west, and much of the remote north is all but inaccessible.
Niagara Falls, Canada is a pleasant city on the edge of the Niagara Gorge, at the site of the famous Niagara Falls. The city itself can best be described as quirky, with a carnival atmosphere showcasing all kinds of amusements, but its strategic location has made it one of the top tourist centers in Canada. The falls are easily reached by just a short walk along the main street that runs down Clifton Hill leading to the gorge. Three bridges link the city of Niagara Falls with its American counterpart, all of them with fine views into the gorge that divides the two.

Former British colonies in the eastern Caribbean, Antigua and Barbuda boast some of the most ravishing beaches in the world. Antigua proudly proclaims it has “a beach for everyday of the year,” and Barbuda, Antigua’s sleepy sister island, is also blessed with some pristine stretches of pink-tinged sand sprinkled with chic resorts. Not surprisingly, many movie stars and moguls jet to these islands to swim, surf, sun, and swoon on the dazzling shores.
In the heart of the state of the same name and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and the high mountains of the southern Sierra Madre, Oaxaca is one of Mexico’s most beautiful cities. Displaying an attractive mix of both Indian and Spanish elements, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has successfully preserved its unique character and is a delight to explore. First settled as far back as 6000 BC, it was part of the Aztec empire until the Spanish arrived in 1521 and soon after established the royal city of Oaxaca, a name derived from the original Aztec fortress.
