  • If you’re a lover of the great outdoors then head to Canada’s British Columbia. Its snowcapped summits, rivers and forests, and quaint villages will leave you in awe.
  • Take a trip to Mexico’s Calakmul Biosphere Reserve on the Yucatán Peninsula. Inside this 1.8 million-acre lush jungle you’ll find the walled city of Calakmul with a spectacular pyramid: the tallest in the Yucatán.
  • In Cuba the Valle de los Ingenios can’t be missed. Scattered throughout the valley are 12 sugar mill ruins from the 19th century and the Manaca Iznaga estate, a hacienda owned by Pedro Iznaga, a notorious slave trafficker.
  • Reggae fans, or anyone visiting Jamaica, should head to the Nine Mile Museum in the village of Nine Mile, Bob Marley’s birthplace and resting place. The museum houses all sorts of paraphernalia including the inspirational Mt Zion Rock where he learned to play the guitar.
  • The Hacienda Beuna Vista in Puerto Rico’s colonial city Ponce is well worth a visit. Built in 1833, it was once one of the most successful coffee, corn and citrus plantations on the island. There’s also a two-story-tall waterwheel, turned by water from the river.
  • While visiting the Bahamas, take a break from the beach and walk along the trails leading to the pine trees, mangrove swamps and large caves of the Lucayan National Park.
  • Watch sugar cane carefully transform into refined sugar at the Santa Rosa sugar refinery in Panama’s agricultural town, Aguadulce. The best time to go is during grinding season from the middle of January until the middle of March.
  • Deep inside the rainforest in Trinidad and Tobago’s Northern Range is the Asa Wright Nature Center, a former cocoa and coffee plantation and home to a huge number of native mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and butterflies, as well as more than 2,200 species of flowering plants.
  • Take a scenic drive past contrasting landscapes and coffee plantations up to Costa Rica’s Parque Nacional Volcán Arenal. Hike across the lava fields of the active Arenal Volcano or take a sunset boat tour around the Laguna de Arenal.
