4-star eco-adventure resort amid Costa Rica’s mountains and jungles; getaway includes a choice of two activities; airfare not included
Blue River Resort & Hot Springs lies in a remote region of Costa Rica, at the north side of the Rincón de la Vieja Volcano in lush rainforest with blue rivers and natural mineral hot springs that isolate guests from the country’s crowded tourist centers. TripAdvisor awarded Blue River the Travelers’ Choice title and it’s easy to see why, given the spacious accommodations and the variety of onsite tours and activities.
Please Note: All tours are subject to weather-related condition and guides have the final say. If a tour is not available at the chosen time or day, another tour, among the options, will be offered when possible. As the safety of the client and the group is the top priority, the hotel and guides have absolute say regarding whether a client is fit to participate in a tour.
The province of Guanacaste in northwestern Costa Rica takes its name from the umbrella-shaped guanacaste tree. These trees blanket the slopes of the Guanacaste and Tilaran Mountains, helping shelter the coastline from rainstorms and keep the beaches warm and dry.
Stick to the shore of bustling Playas del Coco and you’ll find plenty of waterfront activities as well as lively nightlife. But it’s worth heading farther afield to take in some of the province’s national parks. Starting in October, Marino las Baulas National Park serves as a major nesting ground for leatherback turtles. And in the north, Santa Rosa National Park is known for its legendary surf breaks, including one featured in the documentary The Endless Summer II.

Family-friendly hotel near Boston has a sports deck, which includes a pool and basketball court, as well as drive-in movies
Located less than a mile from Boston, this hotel can be a great choice for both family vacation and those travelling for business. Many companies, colleges, and universities are just a short drive away, making the commute convenient. Guests of all ages may enjoy a visit to the New England Aquarium, catch a baseball game, or visit Assembly Row for shopping and dining opportunities.
Located in Somerville, just .5 mile from Charlestown prides itself as being Boston’s oldest neighborhood. In fact, it was the first capital of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. You can experience a bit of the neighborhood’s colonial history along the 2.5-mile long Freedom Trail, which marches across the Charlestown Bridge to stop at two historic areas in this northerly neighborhood. The first is the USS Constitution, where Navy sailors run 30-minute guided tours of the 200-year-old ship’s spar deck, gun deck, and berth deck. The impressive vessel was nicknamed "Old Ironsides" after British cannonballs simply bounced off its hull during the War of 1812.
The northern terminus of the Freedom Trail, the Bunker Hill Monument, commemorates the Revolutionary War Battle of Bunker Hill with an obelisk reminiscent of the Washington Memorial. Follow the trail across the Charlestown Bridge (or hop on the MBTA orange line) to reach downtown Boston, where you can explore the Freedom Trail’s south end.

All-inclusive stay at a 5-star adults-only resort lets vacationers drink and eat to their heart’s content or venture out on day trips
Though this adults-only resort boasts enough amenities to keep guests on site, its proximity to local Dominican destinations is a boon to curious travelers. A day trip, for example, could bring them to Bayahíbe, a fishing village less than three miles away that—though tiny—is a big attraction for scuba divers. Farther west, but still less than 20 miles away, they could also end up at Altos de Chavón, a replica of an old Mediterranean village that includes a Caribbean art center and amphitheater.
Other nearby destinations include Saona and Catalina Islands, which can be reached by a scenic 30-minute boat ride, as well as Parque Nacional Del Este, a national park that contains some of the most impressive remains from the island’s first inhabitants, the Taino Indians.
Once dominated by sugar production, La Romana is now one of the Dominican Republic’s most prominent resort destinations. The city draws visitors year-round thanks to its lush vegetation, gorgeous golf courses, and beautiful beaches with warm ocean waters.
There are several attractive options for day trips near La Romana. The 100,000-year-old Las Maravillas Cave, which was once inhabited by native Taíno Indians, is available for tours.

Boutique hotel designed by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie features upscale amenities; located near Yonge Street
Pantages Hotel places its guest right in the heart of the bustling downtown of Toronto. Visitors can experience the vibrant and lively neighbourhood, with all of its dining, shopping, and entertainment opportunities. The Pantages Hotel is a stone’s throw away from theatres and Yonge Street–Canada’s longest street.
Toronto is known as a wonderful walking city with eclectic neighborhoods and miles of waterside parkland. Set on the shores of Lake Ontario, the city’s scenic hiking and walking trails wind along the harbor front. From there, a northerly stroll leads to the Fashion District, where warehouses and old factories that sat empty for years now house upscale restaurants, galleries, and boutiques. A bit farther north lies Kensington Market, a bohemian village rife with vintage shops and organic-food markets.
Toronto may be home to Canada’s best collection of museums. Hockey is a national pastime, so it makes sense that the Hockey Hall of Fame is here. Its centerpiece is the hallowed Esso Great Hall, home to the Stanley Cup and portraits of all inductees. Science buffs can stop at the Ontario Science Centre to delve into space at the planetarium or touch a plasma ball at the Science Arcade. The Art Gallery of Ontario exhibits an astounding collection of work from Canadian artists and European masters in a Frank Gehry–designed building that centers on a circular floating staircase.

Coastal hotel with views of the Pacific Ocean, featuring a spa, fitness center, restaurant, and bar; includes a bottle of wine
Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa can be a great destination for those looking for a bit of luxury. Located on a historic property on the Pacific Coast, the hotel offers views of the ocean, which can be enjoyed from select rooms or the rooftop. When they want to relax in their rooms, guests can take advantage of pillow-top mattresses and Zent’s spa bathroom amenities.
The city of Monterey is at Monterey Bay’s southern end, in an area considered one of the world’s most scenic thanks to its rugged cliffs and dramatic ocean views. Author John Steinbeck lived for several years in the neighboring town of Pacific Grove, and he immortalized this part of central California in works such as East of Eden and Of Mice and Men. In Cannery Row, Steinbeck depicted the Monterey fish-canning industry at the turn of the 20th century. Today, a tourist destination of the same name houses souvenir shops and eateries right where the sardine factories used to be.
Among the city’s must-see attractions is the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Its mesmerizing displays include a living kelp forest filled with leopard sharks and wolf eels. Note, the Aquarium is currently closed, opening information can be found here. For those who want to get closer to the sea, there’s the oceanfront Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail, where sea lions sunbathe on the rocks and otters play in the surf. A variety of whales pass by the shores of Monterey all year; visitors might also spot a few dolphins from aboard one of the popular harbor cruises.

Modern hotel close to the international airport and transportation gives guests a chance to comfortably explore Seattle and its outskirts
Towering above the South Seattle retail industry and located just an 8-minute drive from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Hotel Interurban can be a perfect springboard for a Tukwila and Seattle adventure. Whether you wish to go on a shopping spree, experience some fine dining, have a little bit of movie-going, bowling, golf-playing fun, or visit a busy city center with everything that it has to offer, all of this is just a short walk or drive away. Exploring is made even easier by the fact that the hotel is located near Sounder and Amtrak train stations, bus lines, and I-5, I-405, and SR-167.
All this exploring and adventure-taking can make anyone a little bit tired and in need of a good rest. Luckily, Hotel Interurban has something in store for all kinds of needs.
A busy and important commerce center at the intersection of rivers, railroads, and freeways, Tukwila is home to many a shopping center and corporation facility. It also hosts The Museum of Flight and the Rainier Symphony. And its location just 12 miles out of Downtown Seattle makes it a perfect springboard for a trip there.
If you decide to visit Downton Seattle, you may be greeted by street performances, flowers, and fresh-caught fish find a common home at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Founded in 1907, it’s where both sightseers and locals shop. Drop into the Fish Market to watch the staff tossing salmon, halibut, and cod—a famous tradition. There are plenty of nonperishable goods as well, including jewelry and other crafts. And you might want to take a picture in front of the market’s iconic sign, which now rivals the Space Needle as the city’s most recognizable symbol.
The original Starbucks coffeehouse has operated out of Pike Place since the 1970s. You can stop here for a pick-me-up before taking the half-mile walk to Seattle’s Central Library. Whether you love books or architecture or both, this futuristic-looking library is worth a visit. The 11-story glass-and-steel structure consists almost entirely of diamond-shaped windows arranged to look like a geometric net. The otherworldly interior is a playground for book lovers. Be sure to check out the library’s "living room" in the morning, when sunlight creates a kaleidoscopic shadow on the floor.

This historic hotel features 18th-century Creole cottages steps from Bourbon Street, Jackson Square, and the French Market
Hotel’s St. Pierre row of 18th-century Creole cottages earned this quaint inn a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, fitting in with the French Quarter’s multicultural heritage and patchwork architecture. Bourbon Street’s burlesque clubs, restaurants, and music venues are just a short walk away, and so is Jackson Square, where you can watch plein air artists paint. Also nearby is Faubourg Marigny, a bohemian district rife with shops, restaurants, and music.
“Stop thinking of New Orleans as the worst-organized city in the United States,” writes author Dan Baum in Nine Lives, his post-Katrina book. “Start thinking of it as the best-organized city in the Caribbean.” Some folks think there is something distinctly foreign about New Orleans, a place where people’s priorities seem inclined toward enjoying life and relishing the moment at hand. Nothing says it better than the town’s unofficial Cajun creed: "Laissez les bons temps rouler," or “Let the good times roll.”
Historical buildings with intricate wrought-iron balconies line the narrow streets of New Orleans’s French Quarter. Here, street musicians often fill the air with jazz music, their trombones and tubas swinging back and forth. Just off the Jackson Square park and near the towering St. Louis Cathedral, the legendary Café Du Monde serves beignets under heaping piles of powdered sugar. The nearby Frenchmen Street, just north of the Quarter, provides a slightly less touristy taste of New Orleans nightlife. Some of the city’s most popular live jazz and blues bars dominate this historic two-block district, with each venue hosting world-class musicians nearly every night of the week. And then there’s Bourbon Street, where neon lights advertise frozen cocktails and crowds gather along 13 city blocks.

The Courtyard Boston Cambridge boasts stunning views of the city skyline, making it clear that hotel visitors are right in the middle of the action. Some of Cambridge’s top educational institutions are all within 2 miles of the hotel: Harvard, MIT, and BU. And for the sports-minded, Fenway Park is just a 1.5-mile walk across the Boston University Bridge.
Cambridge lies about 3 miles west of downtown Boston, on the banks of the Charles River. The city has a long and storied history, beginning with its founding in 1630 by members of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Later on, the city served as an important center of rebel activity during the Revolutionary War. Cambridge Common, located on the campus of Harvard University, was a camp and training ground for the Continental Army. A few blocks away, the house of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow functioned as George Washington’s headquarters during the British army’s siege of Boston.

The brick-accented Pointe Hotel is spacious and comfortable, with facilities focused on fitness and wellness.
Named for the layers of stately evergreens that carpet their slopes, the Green Mountains are a branch of the ancient Appalachians that stretches north to south through the center of Vermont. It’s a relatively even swath of rolling forests capped by a few summits that rise above the tree line, including Mount Mansfield, which tops off at 4,393 feet. The landscape is home to other rugged scenery, including alpine lakes, and more than 900 miles of mixed-use trails for biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing.

3-star top-secret hotel in central New Jersey is located near the famous Staten Island, Newark, and Manhattan
When you book a top-secret hotel, you’re guaranteed a name-brand property with a rating of 3 stars or higher in the neighborhood we specify. We’ll let you know the name and exact address of your top-secret hotel after you purchase the deal: Look in the redemption instructions for this deal, found in your account and on your email confirmation.
This 3-star, top-secret hotel places its guests right in the heart of New Jersey, close to the charms of the famous Staten Island, Newark, and Manhattan. Being far away enough from the noisy New York City, this hotel makes for a great haven for tourists looking to explore the area in peace.
You don’t hear as much about Staten Island as NYC’s other boroughs, probably because it’s the most residential. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do here. The island features the beautiful Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, a group of Greek Revival–style buildings that house an art museum. There’s also the Staten Island Museum, a natural science, art, and history museum with several interesting exhibits, such as a cicada collection.
When you’re ready to venture into Manhattan, take the iconic (and free) Staten Island Ferry, which passes by Liberty Island and offers great views of the skyline. If it’s your first time in the city, you’ll want to head for Times Square, located at the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue in Midtown. The famous address—affectionately known as "the Crossroads of the World"—is home to hypnotizing billboards, giant wraparound news tickers, and the neon lights of Broadway. Beyond the glitz and gimmicks, the area boasts a number of world-class cultural offerings, ranging from museums to Michelin-rated restaurants. Buildings of historical and architectural interest include the art-deco-style Paramount Building and One Times Square, site of the annual New Year’s Eve ball drop.

South Beach boutique hotel in Miami Beach’s Art Deco District, walking distance of the beach, restaurants, and shops; resort fee is waived
Though it’s a short walk from the beach and the nightlife on Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive, the street El Paseo Hotel is on looks more like a European village than most visitors’ ideas of South Beach. The boutiques and sidewalk cafés on Española Way stray from the Art Deco District’s style in favor of Spanish- and French-inspired architecture. The narrow cobblestone street is closed to cars, allowing pedestrians to wander between the stucco storefronts.
Just east of downtown Miami, on the barrier island that forms Miami Beach, you’ll find one of the world’s nightlife capitals: South Beach. The clubs along Ocean Drive are legendary for their boisterous, all-night blowouts—and for good reason. With all the rum-soaked mojitos, colorful neon, and celebrity sightings, it can feel like an endless party. Perhaps that’s why the area pops up so often in film and TV shows, including Burn Notice and The Birdcage.
The coast of South Beach is known as Lummus Park, which Frommer’s calls Miami’s “best beach for people-watching.” Head across the bay, to South Pointe Park or Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, for quieter, more secluded shores.

Hotel located within walking distance of Newport’s iconic mansions, the Cliff Walk, and access to the public beach
The classic New England town of Newport is home to a collection of historic mansions built by wealthy American families during the Gilded Age. The Astors, the Vanderbilts, and other captains of industry erected these massive homes—many adorned with classical gardens, fountains, pavilions, and marble statues—along Newport’s oceanfront cliffs at the turn-of-the-century. Today, the mansions are Newport’s most popular tourist attractions. The Cliff Walk trail that leads to each one begins just 1 mile from Atlantic Beach Hotel Newport.
Newport sits on Rhode Island’s Aquidneck Island, just 30 miles south of Providence and 70 miles south of Boston. With its picturesque cliffs running along the rocky coast, Newport understandably attracted America’s upper class at the turn of the 20th century. The prestigious Astor and Vanderbilt families joined other captains of industry in building their summer "cottages" here—sprawling estates that epitomized the Gilded Age’s glitz and glamour. You can sign up for mansion tours at the historic The Elms, Marble House, and The Breakers, a 70-room Italian Renaissance–style palazzo commissioned by Cornelius Vanderbilt II in 1893 and inspired by the palaces of Genoa and Turin.
Year-round, the Cliff Walk is one of the most popular activities in town. From sunrise to sunset you’ll find visitors strolling the 3.5-mile path, ensconced between the beautiful Newport shoreline and the spectacular mansions. If the conditions are ripe, you might see surfers catching waves on the ocean breakers. The ocean is easily accessible from Newport’s western, eastern, and southern coastlines. It’s often referred to as "the Sailing Capital of the World," and in the summertime, fishing boats fill its harbors and beachgoers flock to its shores.
