Top 5 / South America

Travelers who want to get to know the local culinary culture should look out for the following traditional drinks in Nicaragua.

Flor de Caña
This Nicaraguan rum is famous across Latin America, and you’ll find it everywhere in Nicaragua. It’s usually affordable too, so you can stock up without breaking the bank. The dark rum makes a mean Cuba Libre.

You’ll find this cornmeal and cacao drink at most markets, where it’s mixed with water or milk. The sweetened version is tastier but the unsweetened version is definitely healthier. It’s a good shot for breakfast if you need something quick when you’re on the road.

This fermented corn drink is found in various Latin American countries. You’ll find some that have hardly any alcohol at all, and others like weak beer.

Local Beer
The most popular local brews are Victoria and Toña. Both are light lagers and best served ice cold. When they get warm they’re not nice.

These milkshakes come with any fruit currently in season. Try some of the exotic fruits Nicaragua has to offer, mixed with water or milk depending on your tastes.

What Not To Do in Singapore

Singapore is known for being on the cutting edge of many industries, so it can be strange for foreigners to group the city-state with developing Southeast Asian nations like Thailand, Cambodia or Vietnam. But the multicultural hub represents diverse nationalities and religions, and knowing as much as possible before visiting Singapore can help you prevent any faux pas. Here are a few things you shouldn’t do when visiting Singapore.

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.
