Bora Bora, French Polynesia

— 9 nights
There's a reason why many consider Bora Bora the most romantic island in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to Mount Otemanu and Bora Bora Turtle Centre. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Matira Beach, explore the gorgeous colors at Leopard Rays Trench, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Pahia, and get up close to creatures of the deep with Reef Discovery Bora Bora.

Papeete, French Polynesia

— 7 nights
The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.
Explore hidden gems such as Tahiti Lagoon Paradise and Aratai Safari. Step out of Papeete with an excursion to Taharuu Beach in Papara--about 50 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: stop by Papeete Roulottes, view the masterpieces at Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art, pause for some serene contemplation at Notre Dame Cathedral, and take in the natural beauty of Arahoho Blowhole.

Tahiti travel guide

4.1
Gift & Specialty Shops · Flea Markets · Safaris
The largest and probably best-known of the French Polynesian islands, Tahiti remains synonymous with turquoise coral lagoons, lush tropical vegetation, and palm-fringed beaches of black, volcanic sand. Tall, green mountains rise out of the blue ocean, lined with deep valleys, foaming waterfalls, and tumbling streams. Settlements skirt the island, including French Polynesia's small but vibrant capital Pape'ete, where colorful architecture, a bustling market, and smiling locals generate a great deal of charm. Top things to do here include exploring the island's rugged interior, as well as experiencing the traditional culture through archeological sites and hip-shaking music and dance.

Land of the Incas
In a country renowned for its pre-Columbian archeological sites, no Peru vacation would be complete without an adrenaline-inducing hike to Machu Picchu, World Heritage-listed symbol of the once-mighty Incan Empire. Aside from visiting these spectacular ruins set against the backdrop of photogenic mountain peaks, most holidays in Peru also include an exploration of the country's pretty cities, boasting well-preserved colonial architecture and a slew of modern buildings housing fine museums, galleries, shops, and restaurants. Ideal for active vacationers, Peru trips are also tailor-made for gourmands, as the country's eclectic cuisine blends tasty influences from Africa, Asia, and Europe.
