Travel To North America
It may be a surprise to some, but the North American continent isn't just the US and Canada. It is home to Central America, Greenland, and the Caribbean islands too! The United States and Canada make up most of the land mass in North America, but with 23 countries and 9 territories, there is so much to explore.
Information To Know Before You Travel To North America:
- The primary languages throughout much of North America is English or Spanish, followed by French and Creole.
- Hostel culture is practically non-existent in the US, so be sure to track cheap hotel prices for budget getaways.
- Hurricane season runs from Jun-Nov so plan accordingly if booking a trip to the Gulf, Atlantic Coast or Caribbean.
North American Favorites & Recommendations:
Food & Drink
New Orleans is the place to be for food and drink. Other faves include: NYC, Toronto, Mexico, and most Caribe islands ...because fresh fish!
Destinations You Can't Miss
Don't miss the continent's National Parks: they're my top recommendations. Visit volcanoes Costa Rica and dive in Belize.
The US has great lodging but for a hefty price tag. This place in Milwaukee was a favorite. Blue Osa in Costa Rica and this Aruban boutique hotel were ideal wellness getaways.
Deals & Experiences
Roadtripping the US is a pleasant surprise when you realize many states hardly have highway tolls! Flying to Central America can be achieved with less than $250 -- I use Fly.com to track prices.
