The Bay Islands of Honduras are an amazing Caribbean paradise. Utila is the smaller island, with a great reputation for diving and snorkeling.

In fact, Utila is one of the cheapest places in the world to get a scuba diving qualification, and the island teems with diving schools. You can get your open water certificate for around $250, far cheaper than in most other countries.

Sign up for a diving school and you’ll go and explore a selection of the many dive sites near the island. If you are lucky and in the area March–April or August–September, you might even be able to dive with whale sharks. The biggest fish in the sea are often seen in the waters off Utila during these times.

The diving is great, but there are also plenty of snorkeling spots, too. Whether you’re on a budget or just don’t like diving, you can still see some of the marine life by hiring a snorkel and a mask. You can swim off the beaches or go on boat trips to other spots.

As well as the marine activities, Utila has a reputation as a party spot. Let off some steam at one of the many bars, but remember to get some sleep before your dive the next day

Dubai on a Budget

Dubai is one of the most expensive cities in the world, but that doesn’t mean you have to be a millionaire to visit. Keep these travel tips in mind while planning your trip to Dubai.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

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

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.
