There are some best getaway destinations for travel and relax.
- Puerto Rico's El Yunque Rainforest
There's a place on U.S. soil that is so lush and tropical that it is hard to believe even when you see it. Within its boundaries there are rare and endangered species of wildlife as well, and three distinct ecologic and climatic levels.
- The Mighty Usamacinta River and Yaxchilan
If you're not meek or mild; if adventuring through dense rainforest infested with monkeys and crocodiles sounds exciting; if you're not afraid of ancient Mayan magic or the shrouded secrets of a lost civilization - then canoeing down the Usamacinta River to the Mayan magical city of Yaxchilan may be your one of the next best getaway destinations. Feel like Indiana Jones and live like Lara Croft.
- Land of the Lost Caverns
Spelunkers and high adventurers are discovering a Land of Lost Caverns in the highlands of Barra Honda National Park in Costa Rica, and a delightful backcountry experience in Central America's tropical zone. Easy travel and access, scenic wonders of beauty and mystery, and ancient unexplored caverns await adventure travelers in a traveler-friendly environment.
- Cotopaxi: High Adventure
This is one of the best getaway destinations that is known for many things, but perhaps its single greatest site is the highest active volcano on Earth, the looming Cotopaxi funnel located in the heart of Ecuador's high country - the focal point of the great Andes. An adventurer's paradise, this high-altitude getaway destination puts you in touch with ancient Inca and Spanish Colonial history, and provides generous adventure opportunities on foot, mountain bike or pack animal.
