Monteverde is a town in mountainous northwestern Costa Rica. It’s renowned for its beautiful forests in the clouds. The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve shelters countless wildlife species, including jaguars, ocelots and the strikingly colored quetzal. Cut through ferns and orchids on the reserve’s exceptional trails and walk above the forest canopy on suspended bridges.

From pristine beaches, to tropical forests, and rugged mountain terrain, there is almost no landscape that Costa Rica can’t offer you, but the crown jewels of the outdoors are the nation’s cloud forests.

Madrid, Spain’s central capital is a city of elegant boulevards and spacious, manicured parks and gardens like the Buen Retiro. It’s well-known for its rich repositories of European art, including the Prado Museum’s works by Goya, Velázquez and other Spanish masters. The portico-lined Plaza Mayor is The heart of old Hapsburg Madrid, and nearby is the baroque Royal Palace and Armory, exhibiting historic weaponry.

It’s perfect for a culture-rich weekend or extended break, with great food and an energetic atmosphere that goes long into the night. Madrid is a captivating place whose total energy carries a simple message: this city really knows how to live.

Odenza Reviews Isle of Skye, Scotland

fp

Scottish culture is filled with nature based Celtic myths and legends that tell of magical beings living under hills and waters filled with large and small beasts. The Fairy Pools near Carbost, Scotland encapsulate that sense of magic in their beautiful blue waters.

The series of small waterfalls that make up the so-called Fairy Pools are located near the village of Carbost on the Isle of Skye and accessible only by a foot hike through the Glen Brittle forest. These Fairy-Pools are some of the most pristine swimming holes in the entire world. On a sunny day, the turquoise waters of the natural pools are so clear, you can clearly see each moss-covered stone at the bottom.

I hope this review of Isle of Skye, Scotland will encourage you to visit soon!

The floating port city of Takamatsu sings a vibrant, many-part harmony – esteemed castle grounds that host fashionable craft fairs, the small town/big city energy of a prefectural capital. There are numerous sightseeing attractions including spots from which you can enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Seto Inland Sea like Yashima and Goshikidai, places where you can appreciate the stunning nature during all four seasons like Ritsurin Garden, and spots connected to history like Tamamo Park (Ruins of Takamatsu Castle), and Shikoku Mura Village. You can also can take a ferry ride from Takamatsu to remote Ogijima and Megijima, where modern art festivals are held. It’s urban Japan at its most lovely and free of pretension.

ZAKYNTHOSl

The Ionian Islands are a wonderous, and visually stunning paradise. The waters beautifully blue, the sands are silky and smooth. The largest of the Ionian Islands, Zakynthos is as rich as it is pretty, boasting an abundance of crops such as olives and grapes. Music is a huge part of the local culture—you can catch a concert or festival almost any night of the week, and you’ll be charmed by the sights and sounds of the Zakynthos performers.
