Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was an amazing experience. As expected it was physically tough but worth every drop of sweat and mud (no blood fortunately). For me personally, I found the heat hard to adjust to. I expected us to benefit from the shade of the rainforest more than we did and I guess going from a Scottish winter to an equatorial country didn't help. Having said that it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it harder work. We were also lucky because all 13 of us got on very well and it was a good mix of people. A special mention has to go to the guides and Danny in particular. I remember when we did the Cycling in the Andes that the guides were good but Danny was excellent. As well as being extraordinarily fit and knowledgeable about adventure stuff he was passionate about Costa Rica, it's environment and future. He had a great sense of humour and as if all that weren't enough he and his team were superb cooks. Although this wasn't everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday I came home envigorated and motivated with stacks of energy - apart from having to negotiate Terminal 5 on it's second day of chaos! I've already been on your website looking for the next potential challenge, if only work didn't get in the way.

Maldives

Maldives

Take an adventure sailing holiday to the MALDIVES with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.


The Maldives are located southwest of Sri Lanka, on the equator and consist of 1,190 coral islands, forming an archipelago of 26 major atolls. The Maldives stretch 820 kilometers north to south and 120 kilometers east to west. Only 202 of the 1190 islands are inhabited and of these 87 are exclusive resort islands.

The origins of the Maldivian’s are lost in antiquity, but history reveals that the islands have been populated for over 3,000 years ago. Early settlers were travellers on the Silk Route and from the Indus Valley Civilization. Inherently warm, friendly and hospitable by nature, it is easy to feel comfortable and relaxed with a Maldivian.

On World Expeditions sailing adventures in the Maldives you will swim and snorkel the magical waters coming face to face with the amazing plethora of sea life. During the day your boat will cruise between islands, and at night your boat will moore off remote islands with small settlements, a world away from the resorts.

The Weather in Maldives

The Maldives enjoys a hot tropical climate. There are two monsoons, the southwest from May to October and the northeast from November to April. Generally the southwest brings more wind and rain in June and July. The temperature of Maldives ranges between 24°C and 33°C throughout the year. Although the humidity is relatively high, the constant sea breezes help to keep the air moving.

The best time to visit is November to April. It is advised to wear lightweight cottons and linens throughout the year and pack light waterproofs are advised during the rainy season.
