Orlando is an action-packed holiday destination known as the Theme Park Capital of the World! No visit to Orlando is really complete without a visit to one of its famous theme parks. There are so many to choose from, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and LegoLand to mention a few. They say it takes more than 62 days to experience every visitor attraction in Orlando. If this is your first visit we recommend that you start by exploring the attractions around International Drive, or I-Drive as it is known locally, in the heart of the city.
After the thrills and excitement of Orlando, the next stop on your holiday to Florida is Miami, famous for its Art Deco architecture and South Beach, the ‘American Riviera’. There are lots of entertaining attractions to enjoy on a family holiday to Miami. Enjoy the antics of Salty the sea lion and his friends at the Seaquarium or spend the day on the beach at Crandon Park, the kids will love the amusement centre with carousel, roller rink, splash fountain and the playground. The city also gives easy access to Florida’s popular Gold Coast resorts and attractions, as well as the natural wonder of the Florida Everglades. Once you have taken in as much fun and excitement as this great city has to offer, it’s time for some relaxation on the white sandy beaches of Cancun, Mexico.
Cancun is one of the most popular beach holiday destinations in North America and its reputation is well deserved. Cancun is a Caribbean paradise; the powdery white sand and clear waters of Cancun’s beaches are picture perfect. Scuba divers and snorkelers flock to the region, which offers some of the best coral reef diving in the world. Cancun is also known for its vibrant and energetic nightlife, with a great selection clubs, bars and cocktail lounges to try out during your holiday.

Cancun - Make sure your snorkel or dive tour includes a visit to The Silent Evolution near Isla Mujeres. Mine only included a stop at The Gardener of Hope near Punta Nizuc, and while as nifty and as uplifting an experience that may sound, its not quite as impressive as the 400+ statues youll see near Isla Mujeres.
