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.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with. From ANA's amazing in-flight food to its excellent customer service, it comes as no surprise ANA has been awarded five stars for its seventh consecutive year by the SKYTRAX World Airline Rating.
Not being able to bring a pet along for a trip can be a dealbreaker from some dog lovers when making plans. Luckily, the folks at Pup Flask created an easy-to-use portable dog bowl that will travel anywhere you and your pup go so hydration is never a problem.
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.
Lantern festivals are sweeping the nation. Lanterns originated in China, but made their way across the world. Lantern lights are mesmerizing when they light up the night sky. I always think of the scene in the Disney movie Tangled, where the whole town sends lanterns up to the sky in honor of the missing princess and the entire sky is covered with lanterns. Travel around the world to see the best lantern festivals.
