Have you ever thought about taking a vacation in the city of Faro, Algarve
Publicado por: Toni Martins em 2022-03-05
Even today Faro is not considered a holiday destination, the capital of the Algarve tourist region continues to be seen as a residential city. Although Faro has a lot more to see, what to do and where to spend their time, few tourists decide to go on vacation to this city. Maybe because Faro doesn't have its foot on the beach is one of the decisions that lead to not being so publicized? I don't think Faro is right with the foot of the Ria Formosa and it takes 15 minutes to the beach by public transport, or the best option is a boat trip to the islands, but Faro has much more beach options than most famous destinations in the world. Algarve and if we analyze the remaining components, it wins in practically all of them, let's see; it has much more options and quality in restaurants, it has a very good nightlife atmosphere, it has better stores, and it has better prices. I personally recommend Faro to those who like to do tourism with more contact with the local population, who like to get involved in regional culture and gastronomy and for those who like good beaches with less confusion than the famous ones.

Vacations in Maputo, Mozambique
Publicado por: Toni Martins em 2021-12-01
Maputo cannot be considered a holiday destination, in my case Maputo served as a starting point to visit other destinations in Mozambique. In any case, Maputo has some places of interest to visit, places with the history of a recent past but which continue to be of interest. But first of all it is worth mentioning that Maputo is a dangerous city, you should not bring anything of value with you and you have to pay attention to the friends of the stranger but also not forget that the police can stop to ask for a refreshment. Perhaps the best thing is to hire a local guide to take you to places of interest and somehow give you a little more security in addition to the information. Therefore, an interesting place to visit is the Maputo Central Market opened in 1901, you cannot miss the train station (train) considered one of the most beautiful in the world by Forbes magazine, the Fortress of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, where you can see close up the wooden coffin with the remains of Ngungunhane, the controversial emperor of Gaza, (Feima), the Handicraft, Flowers and Gastronomy Fair of Maputo, another suggestion is to visit the Fish Market, there you can buy fish and fruits from the sea and take them to the side, where you can choose one of the numerous stalls that prepare food on the spot, the Casa de Ferro built by Gustave Eiffel in 1892 is another place to visit. One of the restaurants I recommend is Restaurante Marnabrasa with fabulous cuisine and service, and at night or even during the day, South Beach. Maputo is one of the destinations where you can eat very well, especially what comes from the sea.

Holidays and visit to Cape Town, South Africa
Publicado por: Toni Martins em 2021-11-27
They are one of those places that you want to visit at least once in your life, Cape Town has a lot to do and a lot to visit. Starting with the busy harbor area, many restaurants and a wide range of boat trips, another place not to be missed is the mountain to the north of the city or Table Mountain, and not to be missed is the sunset in the city of cable, they say it's unique, I went and loved it. Not far from Cape Town is the penguin colony on the way to the Cape of Good Hope. Another of the opportunities and places to visit are the vineyards and wineries, the best thing is to buy a tour that will show you the cellars and vineyards. The best time of year to visit Cape Town is in summer (from December to March) this is the driest period of the year, with average temperatures around 21ºC, but on extreme days they exceed 30ºC. It is during this period that the city receives more tourists, has more parties and lives its splendor. Don't forget to visit Robben Island. You cannot miss visiting Penguins Beach with hundreds of them in their natural habitat.

Visiting Commodore Rivadavia and Rada Tilly
Publicado por: Toni Martins em 2021-11-28
Getting to Comodo Rivadavia has 2 options, either by road or by plane, I went by car and it is without a doubt the most exciting way to do it. It's 1730 km from Buenos Aires along Ruta 3, but the interesting thing is not just the road, it's all that we can stop and visit along almost 2000 km. Then it's one of those roads where you never get to the end, there are dozens and dozens of kilometers in a straight line where the landscape is always the same and where from time to time you have to stop so you don't get your eyes closed. Comodoro Rivadávia has one of the largest Portuguese communities in all of Argentina and for that reason alone it was worth it. Comodoro is also the largest producer of oil and natural gas in Argentina, which is perhaps why it is one of the cities with the best quality of life. When I arrived in Comodoro, I met a descendant of Portuguese, Oscar de Brito, who took me to know the city and where the oil wells are located, as well as the sea lion communities and the landscapes of the region. 12 km from Comodoro is the town of Rada Tilly which is a satellite town of Comodoro where middle and upper class families live. Rada Tilly is the seaside resort of Comodoro with a beautiful beach located in the bay of Rada Tilly.

Visiting Buenos Aires - Casa Rosada
Publicado por: Toni Martins em 2021-11-28
Buenos Aires is a city where I felt nostalgia and a sense of well-being at the same time. Everything I've visited I've loved. Caminito is undoubtedly one of the places not to be missed, when we get involved in the history of the place we can transport ourselves to the time of immigrants, how they arrived and how they stayed and at the same time we feel the atmosphere of celebration and joy of the place. The streets are full of music, dancers, lots of tango and beautiful cuisine. Another of the places where I loved visiting was Tigre, strolling through the Tigre canals is a labyrinth of canals that almost looks like Venice where everything is transported by boat. To visit the canals of the Tigre, you need at least a morning or an afternoon, take one of the boats that run along the canals and let yourself go, they come and go, you don't even need to change boats. Then the entire city center is worth visiting, Plaza Mayo, Casa Rosada, the Recoleta cemetery, etc. And of course you can't miss a tango night, I went to one of the most typical and oldest houses in Buenos Aires, La Comparsita. I loved it.^ Buenos Aires will need at least 4 days to get to know the main points.

Santos Bay Boardwalk
Publicado por: Toni Martins em 2022-02-25
Today I decided to come and revisit Santos. It had been more than 10 years since I had come to visit this beautiful city, which is located about 70 km from São Paulo. Despite being a very busy city, Santos has a lot to offer, the beaches are good, the seafront offers a very pleasant boardwalk for those who like to walk or ride a bike and it has good restaurants. Between São Vicente and Guarujá is a good option for weekends or holidays, especially for the population of greater São Paulo. One of the points of interest is its historic center with good restaurants and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Santos is a beach town, privileged by the sun and the sea of ​​calm waters, but with metropolis infrastructure and full of beauties and attractions for all ages, all year round. Santos is still one of the main cruise routes, with many of them starting or ending in this city. For diving lovers, did you know that one of the best places is off Santos? 45 km from the coast of Santos, is Laje de Santos with crystal clear water where visibility reaches 40 meters deep and which is home to an impressive fauna with colorful schools, manta rays, turtles, groupers, dolphins and, depending on the season ( and luck), you can see sharks and even whales! Santos offers you a great diversity of tourist entertainment: Schooner tours, the Santos Aquarium is the oldest in Brazil and since 1995 it has been on the Guinness World Record, among others. Santos also has the largest commercial port in Latin America.
