In Israel “old” isn’t measured in decades or even centuries, but by millennia.  In very few cities can you experience traditional museums, operas, theaters, dancing, and fine dining while side-by-side with buildings that claim origins as far back as the days B.C.

What is the first thing you think when you hear Canary Islands? Do you think of a bright, yellow, lively creature that is full of life, happy, and quite talkative?  If you are referring to the bird, then you couldn’t be any more accurate.  The same could even be said about the islands, too.  A huge hot spot just off the coast of Africa, the Canary Islands are quite the popular location year-round, and the most visited and populated, Tenerife, is right up at the top of the list.  The reasons why are easy to see, too – it is a volcanic paradise wrapped in sandy coasts, palm trees and other vegetation dominating the landscape and welcoming you with warm days and cool, vibrant nights.

Glancing to your right, you notice a rocky paradise, a couple lounging upon stones that are older than time itself.  Looking out across the blue span of water surrounding you, you see a catamaran navigating the glassy waters, lifting one of its hulls high off the water, defying gravity while the wind has its way with its sails.

And finally, to your right, you see a foursome playing golf on a course with breathtaking views; every swing they take brings their ball closer and closer to the shore, the mountains in the distance cheering them on.

This beach paradise is America’s beautiful backyard neighbor – Mexico.  This is Los Cabos.
