Who does not want to go to the Caribbean during the summer? We recommend hiking up Dunns River Falls or going on a snorkeling tour!

Things to Do:

-Hike up Dunns River Falls– Did you know? In Jamaica, you can walk up a waterfall. Visitors can climb natural rock stairs at Dunn’s River Falls. You can soak in natural pools and enjoy the foamy water. Hiking the falls was not slippery as you might think it would be.

-Relax at the turquoise-colored beaches or go snorkeling

Peru is truly a place where culture is alive and thriving. The Peruvian population has a set of customs, beliefs, and ways of life inherited from the native Incas. The best places to visit in Cusco are Rainbow Mountain, Machu Picchu, Red Valley, Pisac Market Place, Ollantaytambo, Moras, and Moray ruins. Take pictures of the ADORABLE alpacas and adventures so that you will remember your time in PERU forever.
