Airfares may be low these days -- but getting there is a smaller part of the equation now, in the face of the dollar's declining value abroad. To show where you'll get the most bang for your buck, we'll be publishing a monthly column comparing the cost of common consumer goods in various cities around the world.
Nestled in between Belize, Southern Mexico, El Salvador and Honduras, Guatemala is an upcoming tourist destination priding itself on pristine jungles, two coasts, an incredible fresh-water lake, active ancient volcanoes, and beautiful rolling countryside filled with great oral and cultural history. Think about going soon -- the dry season, ending in late May, is the best time to travel to the Mayan wonderland.
Just like the spring blooms that slowly begin to emerge at this time each year, so goes it with a new crop of package deals to Europe. Today we look at a decent collection of air and hotel combinations to Paris, which allow you to keep the cost down up front to help ease the sticker shock on the ground.
If you like the sea, you'll love Nova Scotia. The entire region combines the history of every North American discoverer from the early Vikings to the ancient Celts and Gauls to the known explorers such as John Cabot, Vasco de Gama and Samuel Champlain. And they all put a cultural stamp on the string of land that marks Eastern Canada's beautiful shores.

From Musial: "I will be going to San Diego soon and was wondering where a good place to learn how to surf is and how much it costs for lessons?"
From rogerlmartin: "There is a $59.95 membership fee to join this club that supposedly saves you money. It came recommended through a friend's sister who says it really doessave you money. Is anyone a member? Is it worth the annual membership fee? Thanks!"
From EJN01: "We will be traveling to Europe in spring and renting a car while we tour. My insurance company only provides coverage (liability, collision, etc.) for cars rented within the continental US. I realize that there are two options available: 1) transfer my policy to another insurance company that provides foreign coverage or, 2) accept the insurance coverage offered by the car rental company. Are there any other options that others have used and can suggest?"
From Sheila Monk: "I have just returned from a spectacular trip to Bolivia with Rutahsa Adventures. Ric Finch is a genius at putting together trips that are exciting, fun, in touch with the local culture and altogether rewarding. I came away saying that this was the best trip ever. We enjoyed Carnaval in Oruro, explored the great salt flats (the Salar) at Uyuni, overnighted in beautiful Sajama National Park, traveled thru the mountains by 4x4s, checked out a mine in Potosi, sailed Lake Titicaca in a catamaran. And Ric does it without breaking the bank. Rutahsa Adventures is a great tavel value."
From J.Conway: "We visited Hammamet end of January for two weeks at the all-inclusive Iberostar. It was an extremely nice hotel, the food was excellent, and our tours reasonable. Great golf as well. While we there several couples moved from other hotels because of the food to the Iberostar! We booked through Peter Kirk of www.tunisiafirst.com. Peter did an excellent job with our arrangements. We did our own booking to London, and he took care of the rest."
