Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

 

WHEN IN MOOREA
After you check in to your hotel, enjoy the various on-site facilities before a romantic dinner on the beach. Explore further on a subsequent day and rent a buggy to tool around the island, stopping at Belvédère for breathtaking views or shopping for locally made crafts. Other options for your Moorea adventure include a tasting at a fruit juice factory, lagoon tours, swimming with sharks and rays, a motu picnic, zip lining, underwater helmet diving, golfing, snorkeling and more.

 

WHEN IN RAIATEA
Get to know Raiatea on a catamaran tour or kayak adventure on the Faaroa River. Travelers can also opt to stand-up paddle board on the waterway. Ripe for exploration are the island’s vanilla plantations and Taputapuatea Marae, a UNESCO World Heritage site featuring a number of marae and stone structures and once considered a central temple.

 

WHEN IN TAHA’A
Enjoy a drink on the beach or in your overwater bungalow in Taha’a. You can also enjoy breakfast in room, delivered via canoe, before snorkeling in the coral garden or indulging in a massage at the hotel spa. The island is also the spot to learn how to play ukulele with the locals.

 

WHEN IN TAHITI
It’s back to the island of Tahiti for your Air France flight home, but the dream vacation doesn’t have to end just yet. Explore Tahiti further before departing; find romance over dinner at Le Coco’s or sample from les roulottes, or food trucks, gathered near the wharf. Boat to see the legendary Teahupo’o wave and then hike to waterfalls. After checking out Papeete’s sights, take one last moment to savor the incredible beauty surrounding you.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

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.

Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.
