Serpent Mound for your next Family Vacation?

Nature and mystery come together in the enigma surrounding Serpent Mound, Ohio. The history in a few sentences or less: Built 1400 feet above sea level, around 1070 CE, this prehistoric mound is 1370 feet long, 1 to 3 feet high that is shaped like a snake (guess you knew that by the name) with an egg at the end. It is defined as an effigy mound (mounds made to resemble animals). So, maybe it doesn't sound as interesting when summarizing what exactly it is, but when you see the picture, curiosity and awe are almost everyone's first reaction. The enigma surrounding Serpent Mound: who built it and why there? It's safe to say it is of aboriginal descent, but think about the size. Predating airplanes the serpent can only be appreciated from above, which makes one wonder who was up there in 1070 (ish) CE  looking down at it?

Horse Back Riding in Playa Del Carmen

Every tourist heading to Playa Del Carmen has something in common; they want to find the best things to do in Playa Del Carmen. The options are plentiful, but if you are heading here for romance one of the best things to do in Playa is a horseback ride with Rancho Baaxal. Emerge in this hidden jungle ranch off the regular tourist path. Prepare for a one of a kind experience. Baaxa if translated from the Mayan origination means 'have fun', and this is exactly what will happen. In the theme of romance, I would suggest the full moon ride. Leisurely ride through the moon lit jungle and along the beach. There is nothing more memorable than this tranquil experience. (If you are thinking of popping the question, what better way then this?)

Best Diving Spots Around The World

The Yonaguni Monument is a massive underwater rock formation off the coast of Yonaguni, the southernmost of the Ryukyu Islands, in Japan. The sea off Yonaguni is a popular diving location during the winter months due to its large population of hammerhead sharks. There is an ongoing debate as to whether the site is completely natural, a natural site that has been modified, or a man-made artifact. The flat parallel faces, sharp edges, and mostly right angles of the formation have led many people, including some scholars, to the opinion that those features are man-made. Þingvellir is the largest natural lake of Iceland. The lake is part of the Þingvellir National Park. The volcanic origin of the islands in the lake is clearly visible. The cracks and faults around it, of which the famous Almannagjá canyon is the largest, is where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet, and is the only place on the earth where tourists can swim between two continents. Silfra fissure is also a popular SCUBA and snorkeling site due to the sheer translucence of the water.
