North America

Even though there are a lot of people who think that North America only means the United States, they are mistaken. North America is a spectacular continent famous for its towering forests, the vibrating metropolises and its large fields. The continent is also famous for hosting iconic cities, such as Washington DC, which plays a vital role in the history of the United States of America or Mexico City, a place that is still waiting to be uncovered spiritually speaking.

The countries in North America deserve attention

The United States of America is, without any doubts, the continent’s most famous country. What is special about the United States of America is that it has a little bit of everything: sandy beaches, glaciers, impressive canyons, soaring skyscrapers and bustling cities. New Orleans is famous for its jazz tradition, New York is famous for its skyscrapers, its vibrant pace, the Statue of Liberty and Fifth Avenue, while Chicago became famous thanks to its landmark, the Sears Tower. Of course, the list can go on, so a simple one week holiday is not enough in order to discover all the wonders that the United States of America prepared for its tourists.

Canada is perfect for those who area dreaming about backcountry adventure. Even though Canada is one of the biggest countries of the world, it only has around 20 million inhabitants, so it is clear that there are thousands and thousands of miles that are uninhabited. These are the places where nature hasn’t been touched yet. In addition to this, Canada has a few interesting cities that deserve attention, such as Ottawa, Toronto or Montreal.

Mexico is a spicy country. It is the place where tequila is at home, the place where the amazing Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza can be visited and the place where the skydiving lovers love to go, as the Yucatan coast is packed with fascinating coral reefs.

Cities to visit

Montreal is one of the North America’s cities that tourists can’t miss. A lot of people don’t know much about Montreal, so a first visit there manages to impress every visitor. Montreal is a French speaking city that has the European vibe, regardless of the fact that its skyscrapers take tourists with the imagination in New York. Even though Montreal is not Canada’s capital, it is the country’s largest city, so it deserves all the attention it can get.

Honolulu is Hawaii’s pearl. The city is a cosmopolite one that offers its visitors countless sophisticated entertainment opportunities. Those who visit Honolulu are surely going to be impressed with its fine dining options, its theatres, museums and resorts.

Other attractions

The Tortuguero National Park, located in Costa Rica, is famous for its boat explorations. Seeing the rainforest from a boat is a once in a lifetime experience that tourists will never forget.

The Cuyamel Caves are found in Honduras. They are hidden deep into the forest, so they cannot be visited without a guide. They are worth being visited by tourists for their interesting secrets, as the caves were used by numerous ethnic groups starting with the pre-Colombian times.
