San Francisco is a melting pot of cultures and an important financial center of the world. Hellenic in its setting and climate, European in its intellectual and cultural scope, American in its vigor and informality and Asian in its tranquility, San Francisco is indeed one of the most exciting cities of the world. Opportunities for discovery abound. Stroll through Chinatown, shop at Union Square or browse through Fisherman's Wharf. Or perhaps, the attractions of North Beach will beckon.

Cabo San Lucas is nestled on the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean meet the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. Commanding rock formations, timeless desert and a translucent sea provide a compelling introduction to this tranquil resort town. Here, mile upon mile of golden sandy coves dot the shoreline while marlin and sailfish frolic in the waters offshore.

Puerto Chiapas, Mexico » 10 am 6 pm
 

Mexico has long been known for its charming cobblestone villages, colorful marketplaces and wide stretches of beach. More recently, Mexico also has become a popular eco-adventure destination. Millions of dollars are being invested in beachside and jungle resorts, where guests are invited to not only admire nature, but become a part of it.

Puerto Chiapas is one such place where the natural landscape takes center stage. White-water rafting, horseback riding and jungle trekking are just a few of the area's popular activities. Those who hope to delve into the Mayan culture won't be disappointed either, as the Mayan archeological site of Palenque is nearby.

Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala » 7 am 4 pm
 
Pronounced "ket-ZAL" by the local people, Puerto Quetzal is named for a rare and magnificent bird of the same name who sports iridescent tail features three feet long. So revered by Guatamalans, this bird's graceful image has appeard on the national coins, the country's flag,stately coats of arms and prized stamps. Sightings today are rare, for man has encroached on the bird's natural environment.
 
Aug 18, Saturday
San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua » 12 n 5 pm
 
Once a sleepy fishing village, San Juan de Sur has been energized by the discovery of its charming, crescent-shaped bay, excellent surfing and fishing, and authentic, laid-back culture. Vacationers certainly appreciate this slice of Pacific Coast paradise, strolling along golden-sand beaches and streets lined with wooden buildings painted in vibrant colors. What continues to make San Juan del Sur special is that it still retains its quiet side, with the town belonging mostly to the locals during the week and morning wake-up calls still being provided by the neighborhood rooster. Hammocks and sunsets are the way of life in San Juan del Sur, where the hilltop statue of Christ of the Mercy gazes upon the bay, like Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, but on a much smaller scale.
 
Aug 19, Sunday
Caldera, Costa Rica » 5 am 11 pm
 
Superlatives abound when describing Costa Rica, one of Latin America's most peaceful countries. Often called the "Switzerland of Central America," it does not possess an army and boasts a stable democratic government as well as a high literacy rate. Strategically located between two great continents, it has been the benefactor of great cultural contributions from each. In addition to discovering its fascinating traditions, visitors to Costa Rica will be welcomed by friendly people and will enjoy superb scenery and an ideal climate.

Cartagena, Colombia » 10 am 3 pm
 
Charming Cartagena is one of the most fascinating towns in South America. The old city, almost completely surrounded by lagoons, bays and the Caribbean Sea, is still girded by its 17th-century fortifications. Once these guarded the gold and treasures of the New World, bound for Spain; now they shelter ornate churches and convents, the dramatic Palace of the Inquisition, and other historic gems.

Bimini, Bahamas » 8 am 6 pm
 

Appearing as emerald streaks in a sapphire sea, the two islands of Bimini—North Bimini and South Bimini—are just 50 miles from Miami, but just far enough to have garnered some lore and legend: The isles were used as a secret storehouse for rum-runners during prohibition and Ernest Hemingway made no secret of spending time here knocking back libations and trolling for the Bahamas’ world-famous game fish. Today, this tropical locale is a favorite escape for vacationers seeking a laid-back pace, astounding natural scenery, a drink or two of rum and a dip in gin-clear waters.

New York City, New York, USA (overnight) » 9 am  
 
Welcome to one of the world's most famous and exciting cities. Broadway, Times Square, the Empire State Building and Central Park are just some of the celebrated spectacles this bustling city has to offer. Giovanni da Verrazano was the first European to glimpse Manhattan Island in 1524, but the area was not explored until Henry Hudson arrived in 1609. It is said that Peter Minuit bought the entire island from Native Americans for $24 worth of beads and trinkets in 1629 - the biggest real estate bargain in history. In 1664 the Dutch surrendered to a British Fleet, and the town was renamed New York in honor of the Duke of York. George Washington was inaugurated here in 1789, and for a time, New York served as the country's capital. Since then, the city has grown spectacularly and has become one of the most exciting and electrifying cities in the country - not to mention one of the most rewarding to visit and explore.
