Americans are Spending More on Summer Vacations This Year

According to the 8th annual Vacation Confidence Index just released by Allianz Travel Insurance, Americans are spending more on summer vacations this year.  In fact, vacation spending has topped $100 billion for the first time.  This is an increase of 12.5% from last year.  I have to say this is a bit of a surprise […]

3 Days at the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of my favorite countries on Earth. I have spent more time than I can recall in Costa Rica and have seen every corner of the country from my first trip way back almost 20 years ago. Costa Rica has changed a lot in the last 2 decades and the influence of […]
