North America is more than what you think it is. America is a continent, and a lot of people forget this. If you’re struggling with travel plans for business or leisure, why not take a broader look at North America?
Let’s start from the top with Canada. Yes, the land of maple syrup and hockey is indeed part of North America. Canada has some of the best cities in the world. If you like to party and you like to eat, from Toronto to Vancouver you’re completely covered.
Now Canada is a very big place. A lot of it is still woodland. If you’re into hunting or just like being out in nature, a camping trip in Canada is a great idea. Make sure you have the appropriate hunting and fishing licenses. Be careful too, there are bears out there.
Moving down some, you’ve got Mexico. Mexico has a bad reputation in spots. Don’t believe all of it. Mexico’s issues are very more localized to places you’re unlikely to go. Resorts like Cancun are perfectly fine.
If you like sea air and a lot of sun, the Mexican coast is going to be for you.
If you want to go down just a little bit more, we have Costa Rica. Still considered North America, it’s moving closer towards Central and South America.
You might be at a loss for place to go in Costa Rica. Punto de Vista is a villa resort not far outside San Jose. If you’re in Costa Rica for a little comfort, you’re going to be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the facilities available.
If you want to go a little more native, there’s opportunities for that too. Boats regularly go into the rainforest. There are plenty of trips and tours ready to take as well.
Of course, all the Islands Saint Lucia, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago are technically counted as North American territories. A holiday out into the Caribbean is never something you can say no to. You could be drinking cocktails out of a coconut before you know it.
If you’re looking to see where all the tax avoiders supposedly live, the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman are also part of the North American territory.
Now we’ve stepped around this for a while now. Yes, the United States is a very big draw when it comes to North American countries. If you’ve never been, I would advise you go at least once. The United States has so many things to see on all fronts that it can be quite hard to pick specifically where to go.
The great American road trip is an option if you have the time and money. Rent or buy a car, and then take it from coast to coast and see everything in between. Whether you end up at New York deli or a Los Angeles bistro, you’re going to have a wild ride.
Don’t think North America is represented solely by the United States though. There’s so much more to it than that.
