Feels like SummerπŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈπŸŒ΄!

As summer continues to wind down – it is so important to enjoy as much of it as you can😊. Especially since August is right around the corner and for many people, back to school will be a reality. Cozumel is a perfect last minute destination to enjoy a great vacation. Here is a glimpse of what you can expect: youtube.com/shorts/RG3hib2jhtA

Looks pretty cool, huh 😎! That is absolutely what you can expect from visiting Cozumel. Cozumel is such a beautiful island to see. There is just so much to do and so little time πŸ˜‚. On the occasions that I have visited, I felt like I needed more time to spend there to explore. I visited only for a day or two when I have cruised there via Carnival.

Would definitely like to spend a full week there to unwind. On this particular day, it was a joy to discover the beautiful sights and sounds of Chankanaab, an amazing beach park that has it all. Along with what you see in the video above, it also has animal shows, swimming with the dolphins 🐬 and even tequila tasting! Absolutely my type of place to go.

I must warn you ahead of time, hours of time will disappear when you visit this wonderful place. There is so much to see and do, you will struggle to fit it all into one day. All that means is that you will have to make sure to visit again some time in the near future!

New Week Vibes πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ”₯!

It is the start of another great week! Hope that you are having a great day so far. My latest blog posts have been about Jamaica which is one of my favorite islands to visit. Here is another reason why πŸ˜„:youtube.com/shorts/vMvaOsProb4

This view is exceptional πŸ˜„! That water is just the perfect shade of blue. Summer vacation is just better when you get a little Vitamin Sea πŸ˜‚. Nothing else like the sights and sounds of vacationing on a beautiful island 🏝. It just never gets old!

The location that I captured in the video above is Negril, Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡². It is a must see and a must visit. If you happen to go to Negril in the future, I would love to highly recommend Rick’s Cafe😎. The slogan “Eat at Joe’s” should have been “Eat at Rick’s”. Rated the #1 Travel Bar in the World 🌎, Rick’s offers not only great cuisine and awesome drinks 🍹 but the best views of the Caribbean Sea that you can find.

Trust me, the video and the pictures do not give it justice. There is no place like this place in the world. Make your plans to see why the Travel Channel rated Rick’s #1 in the World 🌎!

Life is a Beach – EnjoyπŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ!

Life is always better when you are at the beach πŸ˜‚! It is amazing how everything that you might have thought was important before you got to the beach, suddenly is not so important anymore. The beach πŸ– has that calming, peaceful vibe that no other place on the earth 🌍 has. Maybe it is the sound of the water πŸ’¦ splashing on the shore or it could be the vastness of the water πŸ’¦ that seems to go on as far as the eye can see. Here is a beautiful beach πŸ– that I recently visited in Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡², that has everything that I described above: youtube.com/shorts/G5jXA6NSIXc

It is a wonderful feeling visiting the beach. Even though I visited this beach, I cannot wait to visit another one before the summer ends. In recent years, as I am planning vacations, I have only one requirement, a beach nearby. Even if I am not staying at a resort with a beach (which is my preference πŸ˜€), I will calculate how close I am to the nearest beach πŸ– πŸ˜‚. I am addicted, and I cannot get enough of it.

Admitting it is definitely the first step to recovery πŸ˜‚, but thankfully πŸ˜… I am not looking to change my ways. This particular beach is located at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. If you have followed this blog for some time, you know that this hotel is one of my favorites! I have been there twice now and cannot wait the go back a 3rd πŸ₯‰ time.

It is totally incredible and you will enjoy the beauty of the resort, the pools, accommodations and of course the beach πŸ– which is located onsite. As summer is quickly drawing to an end, I encourage you to experience all that this gorgeous hotel has to offer!

Waterfall Wednesday😎🌺❀️❀️!

Chasing waterfalls is a passion of mine πŸ˜‚! I saw my first waterfall and I have been hooked on waterfalls ever since. In fact, this video shows the first waterfall (Kahuna Falls) that I have ever hiked to and it is a beauty: youtube.com/shorts/Osa-p5p4fA0

Hope that you enjoyed the videoπŸ˜ƒ! As you can tell from the video, it was not a very sunny day πŸ˜‚. Actually it was raining 🌧 a lot on that day, so it was a wet hike to Kahuna Falls. Thankfully the hike wasn’t very far. I parked on the outside of the park, paid the fee and entered the park. The place where this waterfall is located is called the Akaka State Park located in Hilo, Hawaii.

Hilo is located on the Big Island 🏝 of Hawaii. From my hotel 🏨, it took about an hour and 30 minutes πŸ˜€to get to Akaka Falls State Park. It was so well worth the driveπŸ˜ƒ! It was such an incredible experience and certainly one that I definitely recommend to any tourist visiting the island.

If you love waterfalls and would love to see one on an excursion, I suggest seeking out waterfalls that may be close to where you live, or take a trip, like I did, to see one for yourself 😎. I am a believer of exploring the world 🌎 and all of its beauty. Waterfalls are certainly unlike anything else on earth 🌍!

Ocean Views for DaysπŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈπŸŒ΄!

Love my share of beautiful ocean viewsπŸ˜ƒ! Nothing is like looking at the beautiful views of the oceans. How amazing it is – the piece and tranquility that it gives you is amazing. Vitamin Sea is always needed, early and often πŸ˜‚Here are some vibes that will certainly get you going on today: youtube.com/shorts/4TkqIYR7w2Y

Such phenomenal views to say the least! I am always in awe when I look at the videos that I captured of beautiful Hawaii. If you are new to this blog, I invite you to peruse the previous blog posts and take a look at the waterfall, volcano and beach views that I have captured here. It is sure to make you smile and give you great vacation ideas.

Up until this trip, I had never been on a catamaran before. I highly recommend looking for a catamaran excursion on your next vacationπŸ˜ƒ! I heard about them in the past but had a little anxiety 😟 about being on one. Mainly because my experience on boats 🚀 have been aboard Carnival Cruises 🚒 which are ginormous. The smaller boats seemed too small!

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you will make your plans to visit Hawaii in the future πŸ˜ƒ!

Cool 😎 Jamaica Vibes🌴❀️

If you are looking for a great location to visit for summer vacation, look no further than beautiful 🀩 Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡²! Business is back to normal and the views are incredible. Here is an example of what you can expect from visiting this beautiful island: youtube.com/shorts/qXR4akRtan0

The view is perfect in this video ❀️❀️! I can imagine myself being here and hanging out watching the waves as they beat against the shore. If you have never been, you are in for a great time. The locals are so friendly and accommodating, truly some of the best people that I have met along my travels.

Jamaica is known for a number of things but the Blue Mountain Coffee is just superb. In my mind, it is truly in a class by itself. The weather is perfect 🀩, not too hot or cold, but just right. When I visited the island 🏝, I had a magnificent time at the Hilton Rose Hall in Montego Bay. What a place to hang out for sure. The rooms are spacious and the amenities are truly top notchπŸ˜ƒ!

Hope that you enjoyed the video above and that you will soon make plans to visit this magnificent island for summer vacation. Summer will definitely be over in no time 😎🎈!

Journey to the ArchπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜πŸ˜Ž!

Some people live for an adventure and I happen to be one of those peopleπŸ˜ƒ! Does not matter what type of transportation that I am using to get there, I enjoy the journey. It has often been said that half the fun of getting where you are going is the journey. The journey to the Cabo San Lucas Arch was a little rocky but well worth the wait, as you can see here: youtube.com/shorts/BuWr-66qFpE

What you see in the video, is the World Famous – Cabo San Lucas Arch😎! If you have never seen it before, here it is. What a magnificent sight it is. By the way, the main way to see the Arch and all of its splendor, is by boat 🚀.

The boat that I am sailing on is a glass bottom boat that seats around 8 people. These type of boats are used a lot as you sail to various excursions around the world. I prefer these because you can see the fish swimming up to the floor of your boat πŸ˜‚. It is a sight to see!

This particular voyage took me to various excursions along the way (Neptune’s Finger, Lover’s Beach πŸ– etc.) Always great when you can see so many sights all in one tourπŸ˜ƒ! I would definitely recommend taking this tour or any glass bottom tour when visiting your location of choice. I had a positive experience and I am sure that you will also. Always check the reviews first to determine if the expedition is the right one for you and your family πŸ˜ƒ.

Sailing on the Coastβ›΅οΈπŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ–!

With an incredibly hot πŸ₯΅ summer here in the USA and in other parts of the world 🌎, nothing hits the spot like a magnificent coastlineπŸ˜ƒ. Here is a great memory of sailing ⛡️ the wonderful Napali Coast: youtube.com/shorts/_h4M6229NCc

The Napali Coast is one of the magnificent wonders of the world 🌎. I don’t know if there is anything else that comes close to the beauty that is found in this spectacular place. I must admit, I was speechless looking at these amazing views. These are views that you will definitely have to see first hand on a sunset cruise like the one I experienced!

Before embarking on this cruise 🚒, I took the liberty of looking on Trip Advisor to peek at some pictures that other tourists captured while on the cruise. I was impressed with the pictures but they really could not accurately depict the wonder that I was able to see there.

Hope that you enjoy the video above 😊! Hopefully you will make your plans to visit this beautiful coastline first hand.

Check out the Best Beach πŸ– Bar in the WorldπŸ–πŸ˜Ž!

Rick’s Cafe in Negril Jamaica was voted the best beach πŸ– bar in the world by the Travel ChannelπŸ˜ƒβ€οΈ! If you have been there, you absolutely know why. If you have not, take a look at this video: youtube.com/shorts/wxHgBH3t3os

Views like these abound here at Rick’s. The breathtaking views, food and the cliff dives, makes this place a must see! If the cliff dives peaked your interest, check out some earlier posts here in my blog to see this entertainment.

Yes, Rick’s Cafe was phenomenal and a very popular hang out for locals and tourists alike. In fact, as night was falling and I was preparing to leave, the party was just getting started πŸ˜‚. Buses of people were just arriving at that time, so I am sure that the party went on into the wee hours of the morning.

You need to see this wonderful place for yourself, so I encourage you to make your plans to visit some time in the future. It is an amazing place to go and have fun 🀩!

Waterfall Vibes – Unbelievable πŸ€©β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½!

How I love chasing waterfalls 😍! Made popular by the 90s group, TLC – chasing waterfalls has been on folks minds ever since then. I have always wanted to see them for the first time, up close and personal, just to see what all of the hype is about. Boy, was I very happy that I did – the view was amazing:. youtube.com/shorts/oXI7-2IIItE

This sight was just phenomenal🀩. I could not believe my own eyes. Such a wonderful sight. If you haven’t seen a waterfall, make sure you plan to do so. It could be as massive as this one or even smaller than the one above. The great thing about Hawaii is that waterfalls abound almost on every single island 🏝.

This particular one is called Akaka Falls and it is located in the Akaka Falls State Park in Hilo, Hawaii. Hilo is at a higher elevation than the rest of the Big Island 🏝 of Hawaii, so get ready for mountain elevation. The air tends to be a lot thinner in the mountains πŸ” as I discovered when hiking to see this waterfall πŸ˜‚. I was panting a lot – since I was not accustomed to higher elevations.

It was an adventure that I would absolutely do again. I always love to see new places and experience new things. Certainly some the great opportunities that travel affords you!
