Adventurous International Destinations for Your Next Trip

by Admin 22. October 2014

It’s possible to find some adventure without flying halfway around the world. Some of the world’s best international destinations are closer than many people realize. Let’s take a look at a few places where you can get a taste of the exotic without spending half your vacation in the air.

Belize is still an emerging international destination, and you can still be ahead of the masses if you book a trip. It’s easy to get the impression that it’s mostly a place to be lazy on the beach. Adventurers, though, will find amazing Mayan ruins plus world-class caving and SCUBA diving. Caracol is a can’t-miss ruin for those who want to witness the former splendor of the Mayan civilization; experts are still uncovering the site, which once covered more ground than present-day Belize City.

The Actun Tunichil Muknal cave offers a long adventure up an underground river. Tours are guided, but do-it-yourself cavers can tap locals for tips on other cave adventures. Finally, SCUBA divers and snorkelers can spend some time checking out the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Be prepared for huge - but docile - stingrays, octopi, barracuda and other colorful marine life.

Costa Rica is no secret among international travelers. But that doesn’t mean it’s lost any appeal: active volcanoes, cloud forests packed with wildlife, one of the world’s best zip line adventures … what’s not to like? If you’ve ever wanted to see an active volcano, Volcan Arenal near the town of La Fortuna is your best bet. You can take a hike around its base, and then unwind at a local hot spring resort and maybe catch a glimpse of red-hot cinders bursting from its crater. If you like wildlife, Costa Rica is difficult to beat. You’re likely to encounter monkeys, iguana, coatis, sloths and a plethora of bird species.

And let’s talk about that zip line: The Original Canopy Tour location in Monteverde (there are others throughout Costa Rica, too) is two hours of adrenaline on a 70-acre site. You’ll glide among the treetops of an old-growth forest. Even if you claim to be afraid of heights, chances are you’ll be ready to go again by the time you’re finished.

Now, turn your eyes north to Canada: Adventure seekers know Vancouver and its surrounding area offer four seasons of fun. In the wintertime, people flock north of the city to hit the slopes in Whistler. In the less snowy-months, the area near Vancouver is the photogenic star of many mountain bike magazine covers. It’s known for mountain biking of all types: downhill, freeride, cross-country, pump tracks and any combination you can envision.

And let’s remember that Vancouver is a maritime city, so you’ll find everything from kayak tours to whale-watching tours - you’ll never forget the first time you spot an orca leap from the water. Finally, Vancouver is within range of glacier tours. It’s often an eye-opening experience that shows people that a glacier is far more than a static mass of ice. Experienced guides provide knowledge along with gear like crampons and ice axes.

Charter Miami Air Flights to the World’s Championship BBQ Contest in Houston

by Admin 3. February 2014

When it comes to the best Texas barbecue on the planet, there is often no better place to find it than the Annual World’s Championship BBQ Contest. Held in Houston each year, it’s a mouthwatering affair known to attract thousands of cue connoisseurs from across the globe. Should you and your group of foodie friends want to join them in 2014, a charter Miami Air flight is the perfect way to get there:

 

The renowned, annual barbecue event is expected to take place this year from February 27th through March 1st at Reliant Park. The Annual Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is scheduled to follow the event and run until March 23rd. So your group may want to stick around a bit and visit the rodeo too.

 

Our charter Miami Air flights can depart from whichever U.S. location you choose and transport your group to the airport in Houston. Car, taxi and shuttle services are available from the airport to the Wyndham Houston Medical Center Hotel & Suites. It’s located on Main Street and often offers substantial discounts to those who make their reservations well in advance.

 

Furthermore, the hotel offers free parking to its overnight guests and is located within walking distance of the METRORail Station. The METRORail is slated to offer transportation to and from the World’s Championship BBQ Contest and the subsequent rodeo for all comers. Thus, your group won’t have to necessarily hire private ground transportation. Of course if you do want to secure private, chauffeured transportation there are many companies available that would be more than willing to oblige your group’s desires.

 

In addition to the World’s Championship BBQ Contest, live music, family entertainment and a public food tent are also expected to be available onsite. So your group will be able to soak up the event’s intoxicating aromas, flavors, sights and sounds in comfort.

Travel Agents - Use Aviation Charters to Grow Your Business

by Admin 25. July 2013

If you're a travel agent specializing in group travel, or if you'd like to expand into group travel, Aviation Charters are the way to make it simple for your clients to get from one place to another.  Miami Air International is a charter-only airline that can fly your group around the world in style and comfort.

As a travel agent, and like any other business professional, you are always looking for ways to generate more revenue. Expanding into group travel is a way to do this. There are many groups that would fit easily into this niche, many in your local area. Some of the groups you might solicit to use this service include:

  • Large businesses traveling to conferences or trade shows.
  • Incentive winners from one business or several grouped together. Offer this to smaller businesses who need sales incentives but may not have the large numbers needed to charter a plane.
  • Leisure travelers from a senior center, a senior residential community, a college alumni association or any other group.
  • Educational travel of students from your local high school, junior college, or university.

These types of groups, as well as many others, could be offered a travel package including the flight, accommodations, and sightseeing customized for interest and activity level. Miami Air has planes that carry as few as 68 persons or as many as 172 persons. That's a flexible size for developing tours that will delight travelers and cater to their particular needs.

Why charter flight instead of scheduled airlines?  Why not? The benefits are so many that you'll wonder why you didn't offer these tours a long time ago. Some of the benefits include:

  • No extra charge for luggage or name changes.
  • Plane-side security check-in on the ramp for private charters. 
  • Custom departure times, at the convenience of your group, can also ensure a convenient arrival time at your destination.
  • Direct Flights.  In most cases, the flight will be direct. Long distances may require fueling stops, but flyers wait on the plane. No disembarking necessary.
  • Meals available in-flight can be standard or customized according to dietary, religious, or gourmet needs.
  • In-flight videos and personal DVD outlets for each traveler.

Contact us today to start planning how to make group travel a major part of your business.  With Miami Air International as your partner, you can create group travel that will dazzle your clients and leave them with memories to last a lifetime.
