Beyond Hollywood: The Real Los Angeles

Malibu (Photo: Michelle Rae Uy) There's no city better suited for a staycation than good ol' Los Angeles. The destination's many facets--from the broad beaches of Venice and the sea-kissed cliffs of Malibu in the West to the granitic peak of Mt. Baldy and the arid hills in the East--as well as its different cultural textures guarantee an endless array of pursuits, all clamoring for everyone's attention. I never, therefore, pass up an opportunity to explore it whenever I'm home from my travels a...

The Caribbean Island Europeans Don't Want You To Know About

Another beach on Cayo Levantado (Photo: Michelle Rae Uy) Embark on a two-hour drive heading northeast from Dominican Republic's blustering historical capital, past roadside villages and farmlands, and you'll find yourself in a place completely different from the one you just came from. Samana is, in many ways, still very old-fashioned and uncomplicated. There are no towering skyscrapers, barely any trivialities of the modern city life. There are just brightly painted houses, lush hills, locals...

3 All-Inclusive Resorts for Every Riviera Maya Traveler

Beautiful pool area at The Royal Playa del Carmen (Photo: Michelle Rae Uy) As a world-class vacation destination, the Riviera Maya is home to a ragbag of all-inclusive hotels and resorts, each one offering amenities that target a specific type of audience. In many ways, that's a good thing as it gives us travelers a chance to pick and choose. But having too many choices can be a frustrating thing, as you know, and sometimes we need to boil it down to what kind of vacation we want to have. On m...

Wandering Along the Vermilion Sea

The Sea of Cortez | Photo: Michelle Rae Uy Stretches of dry desert, tantalizingly golden yet intimidatingly rugged, carpet the mostly untrammeled land between the Los Cabos International Airport and Los Cabos itself, the two-city destination that has long been considered by the not-so well-traveled lot the height of exoticism. I can understand why they would think so. In fact, like so many before me, I've fallen somewhat in love with it and its ragbag of attractions (possibly even the kitsch...

Bathe in Mexican Splendor: 5 Luxurious Things to Do in Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen (Photo: Michelle Rae Uy) The first time I visited Playa del Carmen, I settled for a mid-range Airbnb studio apartment that turned out to be more expensive than it was actually worth. So while my overall experience in the Riviera Maya then was amazing, my accommodation wasn't such a pleasant experience and it put a damper in my vacation. I've learned my lesson since then; and on my second visit a little over a year later, I manage to indulge in some well-deserved pampering. S...

The Art of Shelling: Shellcationing in Sanibel and Captiva

Shelling is not just a casual endeavor that people do on the side, time permitting. At least not on the islands of Sanibel and Captiva in the Southern section of Florida's shimmering gulf coast. And especially not to the folks that live or frequent there. On these quiet, idyllic barrier islands that together form a natural scoop for the shelled mollusks that roll in from the West and the South, shelling is, more than anything else, a way of life. Olive shells found at South Seas Island Resort |...

The Magic of Anza Borrego

Anza Borrego (Photo: Michelle Rae Uy) The stillness of the desert looms over us as if in warning, as we hastily drive-for the very first time-through Anza Borrego's shadowy roads in the middle of the night, desperate to reach our destination. Maybe it's just me, paranoid from having watched one too many horror movies. Or maybe this arid land is, in fact, paralyzing at night when the mountain lions and rattlesnakes hunt in silence and the coyotes howl grimly, making the more timid want to crawl ...

Enchantment Isle: Exploring Puerto Rico's Eastern Side

San Juan, Puerto Rico from San Cristobal (Photo: Michelle Rae) It was unfortunate that my very first glimpse of Puerto Rico was on a plane late at night. From my window, all I could see were dull patches of city lights over an endless blanket of black. A more scenic welcome would have been nice - lush and green and surrounded by that heavenly Caribbean blue to which I've become quite attached.

Soaking Up the Sun: My Favorite Beaches in Oahu

Puaena Point Beach in Oahu's North Shore (Photo: Michelle Rae) When it comes to gorgeous beaches, the Pacific archipelago and youngest state wins. In Hawaii, you're pretty much at the mercy of the irresistible pull of the ocean. This I can attest to, having spent a week exploring Oahu to ring in the New Year. Like every island in Hawaii, Oahu is like a patchwork of beaches - all gorgeous, all accessible to the public (no private beaches here), all completely enticing. Still, no two beaches are ...

Things I Absolutely Adore About Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

I stand on the Malecon, astonished at how different the Malecon looks from the night before. In the morning, when the boardwalk's bustling nightlife has faded to a temporary stop, Puerto Vallarta's most popular attraction is a different world entirely, one with shops selling local products instead of bars and clubs, bizarre metal sculptures instead of twenty-somethings in party dresses, and the endless sea glistening blue instead of the unsettling black. At the palm tree lined Malecon sit sc...
