Those fortunate enough to have taken a luxury yacht cruise through the Adriatic Sea are the envy of history lovers, seekers of undiscovered, hidden gems, and those who want to relax surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscapes our planet has to offer.
If you’re looking for a wonderful place to stop on your cruise, consider Montenegro as one of your best options. It has become famous for providing visitors with one-of-a-kind Balkan charm and all of the luxuries that vacationers could want, without the crowds of tourists attracted to other nearby countries.
The promise of a “hidden gem” paradise is a major part of Montenegro’s appeal. It should come as no surprise that more spectacular experiences are possible for those willing to venture off the well-beaten path.
A beautiful long coastline filled with beaches, lapped by crystal clear waters, Cuba is a cruising paradise, virtually untouched by modern life. Explore little known archipelagos of islands and cays around the main island of Cuba , as Cuba is comprised of over 4000 bits of land of varying sizes. Whether cruising through islands to the north of the main island of Cuba, islands to the south or along the coast of the main island, white sand beaches beckon with beautiful coral gardens below the water line and tropical rain forests withan outstanding number of birds and wildlife await on land. While inland, fertile green plains and valleys, where plantations once flourished, lay in green swaths waiting to be explored.

From Cabo San Lucas to La Paz, a yacht charter itinerary cruising the Sea of Cortez in Mexico includes historic towns, lovely beaches, extraordinary rock formations, seaside cliffs striated with beautiful colors, and refreshing waters.

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the town of Trinidad located on the southern coast of Cuba, grew to its glory in the 1800’s during the heyday of the sugar trade. At one point in 1827, a sugar mill in Trinidad produced just under a million kilos of sugar. The resulting wealth of sugar plantation owners during this heyday is reflected in the streets in this town through beautiful Spanish colonial mansions, plazas and churches built during this time period. The reflection of wealth did not stop in the architecture, as those buildings were then filled with beautiful china, crystal, art, painted wall frescos, inlay, and other trappings of a wealth driven society in the Baroque Period. Outside of town, in the Agabama Valley, are the remains of the sugar mills, while nearby on the coast are beautiful white sand beaches, and lovely crystal clear waters. Trinidad should not be missed as a port of call on a crewed yacht charter along the southern coast of Cuba.
Where it is summer year around. Cuba is a very large island in the Caribbean Sea with smaller islands included in the country boundaries, all of which are surrounded by beautiful Caribbean waters, undulating with shades of beautiful blues and greens. A rarely visited island, the waters surrounding are teeming with fish and other marine life and miles of undisturbed coral gardens to snorkel with and swim over. Also undisturbed are towns and villages inland, with the Capital city of Havana virtually locked in the 1950’s, while south the towns of Cienfuegos and Trinidad, (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), are virtually locked in the 1850’s when the sugar boom evaporated. Visiting Cuba on a crewed yacht charter does require compliance with certain regulations and the use of Cuban services for certain activities such as scuba diving and fishing. It is well worth compliance with certain requirements in order to see Cuba as the country is now, before a myriad of changes are sure to occur.
A self-ruling sovereign island country since 1978, the official name of Dominica is the Commonwealth of Dominica; and is a Windward Island located in the Caribbean Lesser Antilles. Reaching this island is very easy on a crewed yacht charter when cruising through the French West Indies between Guadeloupe and Martinique. Unlike most other Caribbean Islands, Dominica is covered with rain forests, and lush vegetation through which run 365 rivers, which is one river for every day of the year.
