A Guide to Punta Cana Beaches
Punta Cana Beaches are among the most beautiful in the world and offer a recreation area for young and old to enjoy.
The beaches around Punta Cana and Bavaro, are full of white sand and beautifully maintained. The clear blue waters lined with tall palms, seem to go on forever. The calm waters around the Punta Cana area make for great swimming, especially for younger children, and are ideal for water sports as well. All beaches offer a wide range of excursions, water sports, and beach activities including beach volley ball, boat tours, paragliding and sailing trips. Most of the beaches offer guided instructions and classes for diving and other water sports ranging from beginner courses for children and advanced training for professionals.
There are various diving packages available ranging from $41 for one dive with your own equipment to $800 for 25 dives and equipment is also available to rent on the spot. There are also diving tours available for those who prefer them. Prices of these tours may vary from $200 to $1,200 depending on the kind of package offered. Before taking part in these activities it is advised that visitors carry a doctor's note stating your fitness level.
In Punta Cana, there are a lot of large, all-inclusive resorts along the beach that seem like small, self-contained cities. Resorts like the Bavaro Beach, Paradisus, Iberostar and others offer everything from swimming and water sports activities, different restaurant and nightlife options, casinos, golf courses, spas, tropical gardens and even mini-zoos. Some resorts have freshwater lagoons and provide facilities for visitors to snorkel among a fantastic array of sea creatures.
Some beaches are children-friendly while others have big waves, strong undertow and rocks. Visitors are advised to stick to the shore whenever in doubt. As with anywhere else in the world, the same rules apply in Punta Cana. It is best not to take a swim soon after a meal. Avoid swimming alone and leave your valuables at the hotel in order not to risk losing them.
Ten Reasons to Move to the Costa Brava
After France, Spain is Europe's most popular holiday destination, and the apparent dominance of France is to a large extent due to visitors in transit elsewhere. In 1996 between 1.2 and 1.3 million European tourists visited Spain. It is therefore not surprising that many of them become interested in buying a home there. Spain's property market generally has enjoyed strong growth, with the Costa Brava enjoying a particularly large rise in values. About 20% of foreign owners are more or less permanent residents of Spain, while the remaining 80% bought their property for either holidays or investment purposes.
Timeshares Vs. Condo Hotels For Vacation Home Ownership
Condo hotels, also known as condotels, are a relatively new concept in vacation home ownership. They allow individuals to own condos in luxury hotels and have access to all the amenities of that hotel. When not using their condo unit themselves, owners have the option of placing it in the hotel's rental program and receiving a percentage of the revenue it generates.

Oceanside Vacations on Hilton Head Island
The largest barrier island on the Atlantic coast between New Jersey and Florida is Hilton Head Island. This beach paradise is 12 miles long and 5 miles wide. Because of the high Atlantic tides, the twelve miles of beach are wide and clean, with a new selection of seashells each time the tide goes out. The island's latitude contributes to its mild climate, with normal temperatures that range between 55º and 75º F all year round. The ocean breeze provides the island's air-conditioning. Hilton Head oceanfront rentals are available in all price ranges, to allow each visitor a place to lay rest in between treks on the sand.

European Car Rental - Top Ten Tips for Europe Travel - Tip #4: Before You Go
Many people believe that the first thing you should do to plan a trip is to figure out where you want to go. In a way this is correct, but only in a general sense. For example, say on your next trip to Europe you want to visit France, Spain and Italy. This is fine and you should have an idea of this to begin with. The reason that I wrote the previous three articles in the order I did: Car Size & Type, Price and Insurance, is that I feel you should have a good idea of what it is you need before you decide on what it is you want. The same is true of airfare and hotel accommodations as well but here we are only talking about planning the car rental part of the trip.
