Puerto Rico is known for its Creole-inspired food, “bomba” style music and currently for the amazingly talented Lin-Manuel Miranda and his Grammy award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway show, Hamilton. What Puerto Rico is not so known for, however, is bone fishing.
Just off the northeastern coast of Puerto Rico you will find a quiet, beautiful island called Culebra. The inhabitants say it’s their best-kept secret, one that they love and yet hate to share with the rest of the world. It’s in this paradise you’ll be able to indulge in some of the best bone fishing you’ll ever experience.
If you’re into fishing, and you think you’re an expert or even just an aficionado, this should be next on your list. The fish you’ll find here are as big as the ones you see in those framed photos hanging in the fishing tackle shops, the ones you swear one day you’ll catch. These bonefish are tricky devils, mind you. So once you actually get a bite, get ready to start hauling that line, because they won’t give up without a fight.
You will be sure to have an unforgettable time here, and it’s relatively cheap, too. The island of Culebra boasts a selection of boutique hotels, and the food is fantastic. If you haven’t fallen for the idea of bone fishing hook, line and sinker, but your significant other has, the surrounding island is home to some breathtaking reefs you can snorkel over and even see some turtles. This island has something for everyone.
Traveling to exotic locales often means contending with unusual weather. Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
Nicknamed “The Last Great Race,” The Iditarod is a grueling, long-distance sled dog race from Anchorage, Alaska, to Nome. It’s an incredible race that both humans and dogs train for all year. It takes a lot of strength and teamwork to be able to complete the race, let alone win. The person who directs the dogs, or mushers, must be prepared for all situations. Mushers are on their own during the race and face challenges as they occur.
