Travelers can have the best of all worlds on Tropic's new
adventure!
Tropic Ecuador: Land v. cruise in the Galapagos? How about both?! Tropic Ecuador is excited to offer a new Land and Cruise Galapagos Adventure. The first two nights are at Tropic's Galapagos Magic tented camp. Travelers will enjoy kayaking, SUPs and snorkeling in the Itabaca Channel as well as other activities (additional cost or self-guided) while on Santa Cruz. Guests then embark on a 4d/3n cruise aboard the 16 pax catamaran M/C Galapagos Seaman, for a total of 6 islands in 6 days! 2017 dates and rates here (see far right tab).

At The Manta resort, guests can relax - it's 'fully-inclusive!'
The Manta Resort: For The Manta Resort, the term 'all-inclusive' is a relic from the past. They've ramped it up a notch to be 'Fully-Inclusive,' meaning your guests will not receive a bill on departure, except for additional excursions or diving activities they have taken part in. What's included? Breakfast, lunch, dinner and all beverages (including alcoholic), spa treatments, kayaks from the beach, and endless days of relaxation and fun. If your travelers choose to include additional off-site activities and excursions, these can be added to the price in advance, or charged directly while they are there. Contact us for access to the Manta Resort's agent site for pricing, options, and specials!

Antigua's gorgeous setting enhances its culinary experiences!
Maya Trails: Be sure to have a full belly before reading this delicious San Francisco Gate article on Antigua, Guatemala's burgeoning food scene. Foodies can admire beautiful local produce in the city's Mayan farmers' market, visit local farms and coffee plantations, take part in cooking classes, and enjoy food from street vendors or in Antigua's many fabulous restaurants. Travelers can then quench their thirst during a workshop at the Mayan Drinks and Spirits School. The variety of food and drink activities in Antigua is almost endless. Work with Maya Trails to find the right combination for your travelers, or start with their Flavorful Guatemala itinerary!
