November and December were good months for us with the publication of four freelance travel features and a half dozen pieces about hotels around Latin America. If you want to know what it’s like to be surrounded by orcas in Antarctica, how to find the best happy hour in New Orleans, where to get off the beaten path in Honduras, or which new hotels and hotel trends to watch we’ve got you covered.
Our piece about making the most of an Antarctic adventure was published in the Dallas Morning News travel section which also published our feature about old favorites and new finds in New Orleans. The Minneapolis Star Tribune published our piece about discovering the Lencan culture in Gracias, Honduras. Then we got practical with a piece about travel experiences that make awesome gifts (learning to ice climb in Colorado, riding a jet pak in Florida, kayaking in Baja and the music binge that is Jam Cruise) for Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine.
We also told you about three new hotels in El Salvador including Casa ILB, the best new boutique hotel we’ve seen in a long time, a new romantic hideaway at the iconic Los Almendros hotel and a new beach escape called Tortuga Village Resort.
And we covered the increasing number of upscale all-inclusives in Cancun (spring breakers need not apply) for a website called Travel + Escape (the web component to Canada’s version of the Travel Channel) which we’ve just started contributing to. Then there’s our piece about staying at the hottest hotel in Playa del Carmen (prudes need not apply).
