Head to Goidhoo Pass for excellent surfing conditions with some of the best waves in the Baa Atoll.
The 75-foot yacht sleeps a maximum of four adults and two children. There are two bedrooms with in-suite showers. The master cabin features a glass-bottomed tub for prime marine life viewing. Guests can also enjoy the on-deck Jacuzzi, daybeds, dining area, bar, lounge and library. The on-board crew includes a captain, mechanic, head chef, wellness therapist and butler. A dive instructor, surf instructor, photographer and astronomer may be added upon request.
Pricing for the three-night charter starts at $9,900 and includes all food and beverages. Dive and surf instructor rates for two guests cost $750 and $600 per day, respectively.

After driving through the arts and entertainment district of Delray Beach, I was expecting the lively and vibrant energy to follow me to my doorstep at Crane’s Beach House that evening. I was pleasantly surprised when the spirited rumble of a night downtown halted right at the front gate. As I walked the pathway to the front office for check-in, I was welcomed by a quiet rustle of the greenery and flowers that guided my walk, strung with lights and colorful, tropical décor. At check-in I was provided with a complimentary parking pass; although I would only be there for one night, I much appreciated this unexpected perk. I received my room information, including a pass code that would open my door. Keyless entry was a nice touch.

While it’s on the water, Buenos Aires is not a beach destination like Rio but rather a port city — hence locals are called Porteños and have a zest for life and want to share it with all who visit.
