St Martin Island – Caribbean

This unique Caribbean island is half French and half Dutch, and was destroyed by Hurricane Irma. But it is now under reform. The famous Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Martin has been open since late October 2017.

Most of the island’s electricity has been restored, and many beaches, bars, restaurants and businesses have reopened. Because tourists are still afraid to take this journey, many hotels have discounted prices as well as the prices for Airbnb rentals, which are as low as $50 a night.

Naples is one of the oldest cities on the European continent, and it is filled with cultural sights and interesting monuments, from seaside castles to underground catacombs, showing the beautiful Baroque architecture and a large collection of contemporary art.

Surrounded by huge stone walls this beautiful city can be very hard to resist to, with its glowing charm of the old world and the city’s limestone streets, giving it a cool feeling during the hot summer days.

The houses and monuments here are well preserved and some of the best tourist attractions are the Church of St Blaise, the Sponza Palace and the Gothic Rector’s Palace. These make for an ideal trip when you visit the island along the Adriatic coast. Also, if you get a chance to visit this place you definitely don’t want to miss the beautiful medieval fortresses!

Santa Fe is, without a doubt, the go-to place for nature lovers, art lovers and spa seekers. Surrounded by natural beauty, the city’s roots go deep in the culture of Native Americans and the Spanish. It contains more than 250 restaurants, more than 300 art galleries and at least 100 boutique shops, and is home to dozens of festivals and exhibitions.
