    Originally appeared in the fall 2021 issue of The Compass Magazine.

    What’s better than one vacation? Two vacations. That’s right, port cities make for the perfect pre-cruise getaway for travelers getting ready to embark on the open seas. Get the most out of your time away from home with a visit to one of these three tourism hot spots that also happen to be home to some of the busiest cruise ports in the nation.


    Port of Miami


    Sunny Miami is beckoning with its world-famous beaches, flavorful Latin American food and wild nightlife. Book a few extra days and you will find that an extended stay in the Magic City with a side of tan lines and vitamin C is just what the doctor ordered.

    Where to stay:

    From beach clubs to motels, Miami has an endless array of lodging options. If you’re looking to save some cash, check out Days Inn by Wyndham Miami Airport North, a classic hotel offering free transportation to and from the airport and an Olympic-size swimming pool. For a more beachy option, visit Royal Palm South Beach Miami, a Tribute Portfolio resort or go full luxury at Casa Marina.

    Where to eat:

    One of the best foodie cities in America, Miami has no shortage of tasty temptations to whet your appetite. For a quick bite to eat, check out the Atlantis Cafe, a family-owned establishment serving up scrumptious Cuban and Latin food. If it’s award-winning Mexican food that you crave, look no further than PEZ, a classy establishment with everything from guacamole to oysters. Or, for an unforgettable evening out on the town visit KYU, the wood-fired Asian-inspired restaurant located in the heart of Miami’s bustling art district, Wynwood.

    Can’t-miss experiences:

    Of course, you’ll need to visit the beach, but is it relaxation or a party that you seek? Nikki Beach ranks among one of the best beach clubs in the area with its bumpin’ Tiki bars and cabanas, while 21st-45th Street Beach is a cute local spot that’s perfect for low-key sunbathers and beach bums. After a day in the sand, visit Wynwood Walls to admire beautiful street art or head to Collins Avenue to keep the party going all night long at fabulous bars and nightclubs.


    Port of New Orleans


    Historic New Orleans has a way of transporting you to another land where jazzy street performers play amongst Voodoo shops and dive bars and travelers admire metal gas lamps mounted beneath the colorful French-inspired architecture.

    Where to stay:

    For a stay that emulates the charm and flair of the French Quarter, book a night at Hotel Vinache, a boutique hotel nestled between NOLA’s theater and central business districts with delightful on-site culinary options and downright lovely decor. If your budget is set to luxury, The Roosevelt New Orleans, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel is an ideal offering that radiates timeless elegance and Southern hospitality. Or, for a quick and affordable stay, Trident Inn & Suites has all of the simple accommodations one might need for an adventure in the Big Easy.

    Where to eat:

    While there may be a long line, it would be remiss not to sample the powdery-goodness that are the legendary beignets served at Cafe Beignet. Grab an order of these tasty treats upon arrival before exploring the rest of the Quarter. Then, for a brunch buffet not to be missed (we’re talking homemade fried chicken, mac and cheese, bread pudding and more) or some good old-fashioned soul food, make your way to Li’l Dizzy’s Cafe, a local favorite located just a short jaunt north of the Quarter. To end the night feeling lively and high-spirited, visit Effervescence, a glamorous Champagne bar that offers bubbles and bites.

    Can’t-miss experiences:

    Kick off your day at the National WWII Museum, a massive space dedicated to sharing the story of the American experience in the war. After a few hours of history, take a self-guided tour through the nearby Garden District, a neighborhood of historic homes, some of which were featured in popular TV shows like American Horror Story. To end the day, make your way back to the French Quarter and listen to some live jazz music before joining a local ghost or vampire tour for a good scare.


    Port of Galveston


    Did you know that Texas has islands? Located in the Gulf of Mexico, Galveston Island is one of the Lone Star State’s most popular getaways. Plan an extended stay in this unique city to experience the history, beaches and fun for yourself.

    Where to stay:

    The newly renovated Hilton Galveston Island Resort is a favorite among travelers thanks to its exceptional accommodations and facilities. Enjoy the resort’s on-site fitness center or enjoy a few drinks at the swim-up pool bar and grill. Best Western Plus Seabrook Suites is a top-rated budget option that’s popular for its corporate business center and fresh morning breakfast. Or for a more premium stay, visit HarborWalk Lodge on the Bay, a 4.8-star bed and breakfast with premium offerings such as memory foam beds and smart TVs.

    Where to eat:

    Ask any local and they will point you toward Rudy & Paco Restaurant and Bar for the finest of fine dining in Galveston. Serving grilled seafood and juicy steaks with a hint of South and Central American flavor, this restaurant’s friendly staff and wonderful presentation add to the romantic ambiance. For a more laid-back experience, Los Compas Taqueria & Mexican Restaurant is sure to serve some of the most drool-worthy Mexican food you’ll ever have the pleasure of sampling, and the Shark Shack Beach Bar and Grill offers some of the best burgers in the area.

    Can’t-miss experiences:

    Moody Gardens is a good place to kick off your adventure; you’ll recognize the gardens immediately as the three giant glass pyramids just west of the port. Each pyramid has a different theme — aquarium, rainforest and theater — in addition to a number of other on-site activities like golf and zip lining. History buffs will want to take some time to enjoy Galveston’s famous mansions including the Moody Mansion and the Bishop’s Palace, both of which date back to the 1800s. After enjoying a blast from the past, check out the Galveston Pleasure Pier, one of the area’s most popular attractions with a dozen rides, one roller coaster and a restaurant that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico.


  • Why Buy Travel Insurance?

    11/8/2021 12:14:13 PM Link 0 comments | Add comment


    Why You Need Travel Insurance for a Mexico Vacation


    Planning a trip to Mexico is relatively easy to do. There are ample flights from the U.S. to several cities in Mexico and there are all types of lodging choices to match budgets and vacation goals.


    American vacationers cross the border to experience the culture, heritage, beaches, historical sites and rich culinary scene.


    Mexico is a vibrant country that’s diverse from coast to coast. “Whether you choose to book a tour or explore on your own, you should consider trip cancellation coverage. When you’re paying a lot of money upfront, you want to be sure that you won’t lose your deposits if something unexpected prevents you from going on your trip as planned.


    Here’s how a robust travel insurance policy can offer a financial safety net for your Mexican getaway


    A travel insurance policy can provide peace of mind that your trip investment is protected.


    Particularly for international travel, pick a comprehensive plan with coverage for:

          Trip cancellation, delay and interruption
          Medical expenses and emergency medical evacuation
          Baggage loss


    Planning adventures like ziplining, parasailing or scuba diving? Be aware that many travel insurance plans exclude adventure and extreme sports. Work with a travel insurance agent to identify the policies that will cover the activities you’re planning.


    What If You Can’t Go


    It’s exciting to look forward to a trip to Mexico and the country’s joyful vibe and laidback tropical backdrop. Maybe you have added swimsuits to your wardrobe and arranged for a pet sitter. But the unexpected can happen, and travel insurance can help make sure you don’t lose your shirt if you have to cancel the trip.


    Trip cancellation coverage within a travel insurance policy can reimburse you 100% for the non-refundable deposits you lose if you have to cancel for a reason listed in the policy. Typical acceptable reasons include illness or injury of you or someone in your traveling party, illness or injury of an immediate family member, civil unrest, a job loss, severe weather like a hurricane, military deployment or a serious family emergency.


    Not all reasons for canceling a trip will be eligible for a trip cancellation insurance claim. For example, if you booked an all-inclusive resort in Tulum and the reviews online say the pools are slimy and the food is sub-par, this is not a reason covered by a standard policy.


    If you want the greatest level of flexibility to cancel a trip and make an insurance claim, upgrade your policy to “cancel for any reason” (CFAR) coverage. This adds an average of 50% to the policy cost but gives you the ability to cancel the trip for a reason not listed in the base policy, such as bad resort reviews or simply changing your mind.


    You generally must cancel no less than 48 hours before your scheduled departure and you typically get back 75% of the trip cost (not 100%) under a CFAR claim.


    Delays During a Mexico Trip


    It’s ideal to fly directly to Cancun, Mexico City or Cabo San Lucas. But maybe you can snag a bargain fare with a stopover and use the savings for lime margaritas at the beach bar. If you’re on a connecting flight through Miami en route to Cancun and you get stuck at the airport because of weather, travel delay coverage can reimburse you for the extra costs related to the delay, such as buying airport food and essential toiletries.


    Or if your connecting flight is canceled due to thunderstorms, and you miss out on the private beach cabana you booked, you can make a trip delay claim for the lost deposit.


    Mexico Trips Cut Short


    When you are lounging on the beach in Riviera Maya, or paddle boarding in the crystal blue ocean, the last thing on your mind is going home early. But if a problem crops up and you have to cut your vacation short, trip interruption insurance can reimburse you for the money you lose.


    For example, if you’re in the military and find out you’re being deployed right away, your last-minute flight home could be covered, as well as any unused, pre-paid excursions, hotel rooms and tours. Check the policy for the reasons covered under trip interruption insurance.


    Handling Medical Problems in Mexico


    Check your health plan coverage rules well before you jet off to Mexico. It may have little global coverage, or a very high out-of-network deductible. Knowing whether your health insurance will work in Mexico will help you decide how much travel medical insurance you need. And Medicare doesn’t work in Mexico.


    “Whether you’re marveling at Mexico’s colonial treasures, taking a dip in the cenotes, or going to a Mezcal tasting, medical emergencies can happen no matter what your activity—and at any point of your travels,” points out Cheng.


    “You could be at risk for mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue fever or malaria. Having a travel insurance plan with good medical coverage can help save you from getting stuck with out-of-pocket expenses and from having to scramble around to find the right hospitals or health care providers, she says.


    Plus, your travel insurance company’s 24/7 emergency assistance hotline can help you find doctors, hospitals and pharmacies.


    You can find policies with $500,000 in coverage for medical expenses—or lower amounts, depending on your budget. Choose a plan with “primary” medical insurance if you don’t want to have to make a claim on your own health plan first (if you have coverage in Mexico).


    If needed, your travel insurance company can dispatch an air ambulance to get you to a medical facility that’s properly equipped to handle your condition or injury. Without this coverage, you could be on the hook for thousands of dollars for medevac costs. You can find policies with $1 million in medical evacuation coverage.


  • Top 4 National Parks to Visit in Fall

    10/21/2021 1:35:56 PM Link 0 comments | Add comment

    Travel insights from Taylor Coulson, associate editor of The Compass

    Are you looking for the perfect place to fulfill your fall foliage wanderlust? Visit any of these five national parks this fall when the changing palette of green trees begins taking on hues of gold, orange and red. Plus, Nov. 11, Veterans Day, is your last chance to visit a national park for free in 2021, just in time to see those famous fall colors up close.


    1. Shenandoah National Park



    Virginia is for (fall) lovers and the best place to visit when fall foliage is at its fiery peak is Shenandoah National Park. It’s one of those lesser-known national parks but it holds treasures of its own, especially in late October to early November. Shenandoah National Park is actually one of America’s most accessible parks, located about an hour away by car (75 miles) from Washington, D.C. and surrounded by charming towns like Charlottesville and Harrisonburg. Some hidden treasures here include more than 200,000 acres of waterfalls, 500 miles of hiking trails, campsites and outdoor recreation. It’s easy to hit the road and take in the plum-colored sumacs and deep purple dogwoods while driving down Skyline Drive, a 105-mile stretch filled with incredible vistas from 75 overlooks of the Blue Ridge Mountains.


    Peak fall foliage: Fall Foliage Prediction Map projects Oct. 11-25, 2021


    Where to stay: The DoubleTree by Hilton Harrisonburg , located 21.7 miles away from Shenandoah National Park and 9.7 miles from the Shenandoah Valley Airport (SHD).


    2. Grand Teton National Park



    Wyoming is wild, wonderful and especially colorful during fall at its gorgeous glacial park – Grand Teton National Park. From the third week in September through early October, hikers, botanists and photographers fall in love with the yellows and golds that make everything about Grand Teton grand. More than 200 miles of hiking trails, quaking aspen along the slopes and narrowleaf cottonwoods covering the banks of the Snake River and other streams make this one of the best national parks for fall photography. You’ll find some of the best fall colors that make for excellent backdrops along scenic drives to Oxbow Bend, along Antelope Flats and on the Inner Loop Road. Also, be sure to listen for eerie elk bugles in the park – a key sign of autumn ambiance in the Tetons.


    Peak fall foliage: The third week of September through early October


    Where to stay: Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa, located just one mile away from Grand Teton National Park and eight miles from the Jackson Hole Airport (JAC).


    3. Acadia National Park



    Maine is one of America’s favorite fall destinations and its home to the only national park in New England: Acadia National Park. This picturesque park on the coast of Maine starts cooling off in late August and by mid-October, tourism picks up. Its peak weeks in fall are filled with famous foliage covered in fiery autumnal colors and crisp, refreshing air to experience endless fall possibilities. Beginning in early October and lasting until early March, Acadia National Park also has the distinction of being the first place in the U.S. to see the spectacular sunrise every morning from the 1,530-foot summit of Cadillac Mountain. Acadia National Park is also dubbed “the crown jewel of the North Atlantic Coast,” where outdoor lovers will be in their element from finding various wildlife, ocean-front landscapes, mountain bike tracks and 160 miles of hiking trails to explore. You can easily explore plenty of the park by car – plus, your furry travel companion can ride shotgun since this is also a pet-friendly national park.


    Peak Fall Foliage: Mid-October


    Where to stay: The Lucerne Inn is 23.7 miles away from Acadia National Park and 20.9 miles away from Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport (BHB).


    4. Arches National Park



    Utah is the ultimate and underrated state to visit in fall because of Arches National Park. It’s one of the most popular parks in the U.S. and has something for everyone. Visiting this red-rock wonderland is like stepping into another world. While it’s known for its incredible orange and red rock landscapes year-round, fall is the best time to visit for hiking, camping, 4x4 tours, stargazing, rock-climbing and scenic flights. The autumn air is cool and tolerable in mid-October, which makes it a hot spot for hiking. Some fall favorite hikes to consider are the famous Delicate Arch or visit easier hikes to the Landscape Arch, North & South Windows, Balanced Rock and Sand Dune Arch as well.


    Peak Fall Foliage: Mid-October


    Where to stay: Westgate Park City Resort is around 230 miles away from Arches National Park and 34.2 miles away from Salt Lake City Airport (SLC).


    We want to remind you that Wednesday, November 11, Veterans Day, is a fee free entry to the park. Also beginning Wednesday, all U.S. armed service veterans and Gold Star dependents will be granted free entrance to all Department of Interior managed lands and waters.

  • Time to Shine Again: The Shows Go Back on in Las Vegas

    10/15/2021 3:22:38 PM Link 0 comments | Add comment


    As a city of glitter, glamour, and lights, Las Vegas is shining all the brighter for its grand comeback. Of all the many options this destination has for entertainment, these are the ones that Southwest Vacations considers the surest things to make their first time back, the best time.


    Experience the Magic of Las Vegas


    Las Vegas is the ultimate city of escape—freedom from limitation, or even the bounds of reality. Amazing illusionists in residence like the famed David Copperfield—a headliner at MGM Grand Las Vegas—suspend audience members twice over, from rapt attention to disbelief. Plus, new at The Mirage is Shin Lim’s LIMITLESS act, the only person to ever have won America’s Got Talent twice. But if you want to catch the stars before they make it big, watch the selfsame show live at Luxor Hotel & Casino this fall, twice a night, five times a week.


    Laugh Until It Hurts So Good


    Top-notch comedians are bringing the belly laughs we need to some of the best stages in the city, such as that Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand, a stage known for being specially designed just for the funnies. Sure, he anchors there, but guest acts and special hosts add even more standouts to the standup schedule, too. Brad’s a big man with a big name, but if their taste runs more toward a big name with a big mane, Carrot Top is at it again at Luxor Hotel & Casino.


    Don’t Be a Dummy


    Snagging your customers tickets to Terry Fator’s Who’s the Dummy Now act is a smart show to add to their itinerary. Already voted “Best Strip Headliner” three years in a row, this brand-new show incorporating puppetry, comedy, and chart-topping tunes at New York-New York Hotel & Casino is a crowd-pleaser set to become a classic. And don’t think his cast of puppets will be the only guest appearances. Close your eyes and a mixed bag of more than 200 celebrities might join the stage as “the world’s most gifted singing ventriloquist” channels their voices into his new lineup.


    Unlike Anything Else


    There are certain experiences that are distinctive to Las Vegas: the rare, the unusual. Among them is Jabbawockeez at the MGM Grand, a for-all-ages mega-tech production of dramatic scale. And don’t forget Cirque du Soleil’s range of surrealistic, acrobatic feats. “O,” Beatles-inspired LOVE, and Michael Jackson tribute ONE are back on the roster, too.


    Hit a High Note


    It’s Saturday Night Fever every night with The Australian Bee Gees tribute show at Excalibur Hotel & Casino! They’re one of many musical acts you can count on year-round in Las Vegas. Also, keep an eye out for one-off concerts like Alanis Morissette, The Killers, Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin, and more! Hot off the debut of his new band Silk Sonic’s debut album, Bruno Mars took the stage again for a limited engagement at Park Theater at Park MGM.


    Complete Your Experience


    Riveted in your seat as you will be, eventually, do will have to leave the grand stage of your choosing. The best way to make the encore as good as the headliner? Staying at an MGM Resorts property, always only steps away from all these great shows. There are over 10 hotels to choose from to suit any travel or entertainment style, from iconic Las Vegas splendor to gorgeous architecture from a different city and budget-friendly digs to high-end luxury. Get there with Southwest Vacations, with your pick of countless routes and guaranteed lowest prices that can have your customers packing their bags in no time, and often with no additional fees! And best of all, in an uncertain world, this trip can be backed up with the certainty of travel protection. Learn how to travel LuggageFree.
