Canada's only predominately French-speaking province, Quebec boasts a French heritage that not only sets it apart from other parts of this sprawling country, but also from the rest of the continent. A trip to Quebec allows tourists to discover a land with a European look and feel, which you can best appreciate by immersing yourself in the region's bistro culture. Like the rest of Canada, this province features impressive natural attractions, which many choose to discover on a network of nearly 3,500 km (2,100 mi) of bicycle paths. For an urban experience, add Montreal to your Quebec sightseeing itinerary and discover a busy metropolis with a perfect blend of history-steeped neighborhoods and trendy districts offering modern distractions for every traveler's taste.

Tiny in terms of land area, Costa Rica is astoundingly diverse when it comes to culture and natural attractions. In a country called "Rich Coast", it's no surprise most Costa Rica vacations dedicate at least a few days to picturesque Pacific and Caribbean beaches, ideal for water sports and relaxation. Few small countries offer such a range of landscapes, allowing tourists to observe towering volcanoes while soaking away their worries in a hot spring, or hike into dense rainforests in the morning and surf at a modern resort in the afternoon. A trip to Costa Rica also lets you discover pristine national parks, ensuring plenty of chances to view wildlife from the comfort of eco-friendly lodges packed with amenities even ardent nature lovers secretly desire.
