Explore Underwater Life off San Cristóbal Island in the Galápagos

Wildlife viewing in the Galápagos Islands reaches its prime from June through December, but realize the water is cold for snorkeling and scuba diving in the summer months. The temperature increases as you get closer to January, the reason many locals think Christmas break is the best time of year to visit.

The reefs and rocks off San Cristóbal are known for their wealth of sea life. Book a two-tank dive with Galapagos Underwater and you’ll likely be headed to Kicker Rock, a unique rock formation one mile offshore. Expect to find sea turtles, hammerhead sharks, stingrays and eagle rays. Snorkelers can also swim through the channel to see this natural aquarium. Casa Opuntia, an 11-room boutique hotel on the beach in San Cristóbal, features a swimming pool and a seafood restaurant known for its ceviche, all within easy walking distance to the scuba and snorkeling shops in town.

Antica Torre di Via Tornabuoni 1 Review

If you’ve ever dreamt of experiencing the good life of Florence’s great families — but in a modern context — Antica Torre di Via Tournabuoni 1 more than fulfills the requirements. The former private villa in its newly reinvigorated state (completed during the pandemic) offers a full-on Florentine immersion, whether you are traveling on business, pleasure or some mix of both. The location (the physical and cultural center of Florence) and the mid-13th-century building’s conversation-starting pedigree (built by the Guelf-Ruggerini family and owned by the Gianfigliazzi family) are two of the most important selling points. However, it’s what the current management has done to make the property relevant to 21st-century travelers that makes it worth checking into.
