Frank Del Rio: Milestone Inaugural Voyages to Cuba

Oceania Cruises announces its highly awaited Cuba Inaugural Voyages.

Fiji | Vomo

This post is part of a series from my recent trip to Fiji.  Click here for the introductory post.

AT VOMO, I did a reef excursion which was out of a movie. The small boat takes you to a reef – which just pops up in the ocean. You jump off with your naturalist and swim along the edge looking at all sorts of cool fish and ‘plants’. If you turn around and face the ocean there is nothing but the deepest blue you’ve ever seen. Simple, but I’ll never forget it.

And to see the reefs from the air on your arrival via heli is unforgettable too. 

Just 32 bures including a few villas, they’re almost all directly on the beach so you walk out and there u are.  They’re not big, but they are beautiful and cozy. And the beach is RIGHT there.   The main pool is quite chic as is the new restaurant and bar.

The brand new Palms 4 bedroom villa is spectacular. Chic modern design. Fab for entertaining or hanging out with friends. Indoor/outdoor private pool. Next door’s Beach House 3 bedroom is great as well (combine them for 7 bedrooms!).  There are small individual bures which are very well done. A new sexy restaurant and bar is scheduled to be open several nights a week. And the main pool has a beautiful teak deck. 

This hotel is great for families and those wanting easy access to the water. And diving. 

For all pix of my sojourn, visit my Fiji Flickr page.  And click here for our perks at Vomo.

Piscola | Chile 

Did you know that 1) Pisco originated in Chile, and not in Peru. And 2) the Piscola also originated here – a mix of Pisco and Coke. And 3) the best Pisco Sours are made by Cristobal.

That’s today’s word on beverages in South America. The photo is of  a Calafate Sour at The Singular, a luxury resort here at the tip of So America.
