As you prepare for the upcoming Valentine's Day weekend read up on our new companies, maybe they might give you ideas on what to do with your significant other.
We are in Portugal once again for the first company of our companies of the week. Algarve SUP Tours is a watersport company in Portugal giving stand up paddle tours . Stand up paddle provides a different way to explore the waters. An easy to learn activity that is suitable for all ages, guests stand on boards and paddle their way through tranquil waters. Stand up paddle brings the guest closer to nature, unlike boats and other vessels the paddle boards can explore caves and smaller crevices easier. While you are having fun paddling the waters, you will also be getting a workout. All of this combined is making stand up paddle a popular activity, and Algarve SUP Tours is one of the premier companies exposing this sport in Portugal.
Tours are given in small groups with no more than eight people on a single tour. All equipment is provided, and a tour guide will be with you every second of your tour. Although you are being guided the trip is in your hands, you decide how far you want to take the trip. Guests can take in the wonderful views of the coastline, views not seen by many because most of their route includes unreachable sections of the coastline. “The natural beauty of rock formations, caves and imposing cliffs is so breath-taking that you feel as if you've left the real world behind you.” You can choose to hop off and go swimming into the caverns, jump off on of the high cliffs, or just lay on the board and enjoy the sun.
With the help of TrekkSoft guests can now book the activity directly on Stand Up Paddle Algarve’s website. A “BOOKING” button has been conveniently placed on multiple places on the website, so guess looking to book dont have to go through the hassle of finding out how to book. They can book ahead of time, show up to the site and enjoy a wonderful time on the waters.
With Valentines Day coming up, why not plan your romantic getaway to Mexico with a company that is aptly named for this holiday. Loving Tours is a an activities and vacation rental company offering tours and rentals in Cancun & Playa del Carmen. The company has partnerships with the best hotels in the area, and not to mention partnerships with the best tour suppliers in the area as well. All of this to ensure that the guest is well taken care of during their stay in Cancun or Playa del Carmen. These partnerships allows Loving Tours to provide services at a competitive price. You get to enjoy yourself without breaking the bank.
Tours include everything from Horseback riding, swimming with turtles, catamaran tours, to snorkeling. With so many activites thats they offer guests can have a full vacations worth of activities in one day. To make it easier for guests to decide what they want to do Loving Tours have put together different packages that feature multiple activities. My personal favorite is the “ATV + Cavern + Zipline + Cenote. This tour will have guests riding Outlander MAX ATV’s through the jungle, to a remote location for some ziplining. After ziplining above the jungle, they lead their guests to an underground river with crystal clear water for some snorkeling. They end the day with a nice buffet lunch featuring authentic Mexican food.
Plenty of activites to do in one of the most popular destinations for tourists, Loving Tours has a lot to offer guests. Those taking a trip to Mexico for Valentine’s Day make sure to give them a call!
We venture out to Ecuador for our last feature company of the week. Terrandes Adventure is one of the many companies in Ecuador working with TrekkSoft. Located in the capital city of Quito, they are an adventure tour operator, with a young, but experienced staff in planning tourism services around the country. They employ some of the best guides the country has to offer, all specialized in their specific tour, tours are giving with state of the art equipment and transportation vehicles are fully equipped with modern technology. It is no wonder why they have the number one ranked activity in all of Cumbaya on TripAdvisor. So if it is a city tour in Quito, an eco tour in the Galapagos Islands or a rainforest tour in the Amazon Terrandes is definitely the company you want to go with.
Ecuador is a unique country because you can find almost any activity you want to do there. Quito is an historic city, the most famous rainforest is there and the Galapagos Islands are there. Terrandes Adventure has a tour that covers every centimeter of the country. What seems to a favorite of guests to partake in is the Huaorani Lodge. It is a tour that takes exposes guests to indigenous people. Most describe it as a life changing experience. Guests spend nearly a week with the people where they learn all about the culture and fully immerse themselves in it. It is a form of sustainable tourism, where Terrandes has formed friendships with the local communities and make sure that each tour gives back to these communities to preserve them. The Huaorani people are all very inviting and welcoming, and are always waiting for guests.
