Check out the Horrifying Hotel that Inspired 'The Shining!'
Caving might just be one of the coolest things you can do in your spare time; how could it possibly be made cooler, you ask? How about caving inside a dormant freaking volcano -- for a window of six weeks, scientists are leading underground explorations into the magma chamber of the Thrihnukagigur volcano. Before entering the lava-spewer itself, you'll swim in some insanely clear water, bed down at a luxe hotel, and ride in a super jeep (whatever that is, it sounds awesome).
Panama: land of hats, and a canal. But wait -- there's more? This 10-day, coast to coast tour will take you from the jungles of Boquete to the islands of Bocas del Toro. Indulge in local cuisine, sample fresh joe at a coffee plantation, or go rogue and choose your own adventure.
See this tortoise? He's just one of the exotic locals you'll meet on this Ecuadorean cruise. There'll also be white sandy beaches with sea lions, snorkeling with cormorants and exotic fish, and totally trail-less jungle hiking. You'll spend your seven nights aboard an Ecoventura yacht, with all meals and snacks comped.
