Six Brazilian Cities to Host Olympic Soccer Games

Who says Brazil is not totally focused on the 2016 Summer Olympics?

Parks & Recreation = Family Travel Highs in Costa Rica

“If any destination is tailormade for family travel, Costa Rica is it.” I wrote that sentence in Recommend’s Costa Rica Specialist Program based on just looking around during many years of traveling in this family-friendly nation.
