Best airlines in the world, staff excellent, crew excellent and friendly and helpful.

From the imposing Manhattan skyline and the colonial architectural gems of Cuba to the lush rainforests of Panama, North America is a land of glorious contrasts. The biggest countries, USA and Canada, are as diverse as their landscapes.

Travellers visting North America have a huge range of destinations to choose between. Colourful Mexico effortlessly blends old and new with its Mayan ruins and thriving modern cities. In the central part of the continent, Costa Rica has evolved into a prime eco-tourism destination, while Panama has some of the region’s best bird-watching and hiking opportunities.

The Caribbean islands within North America – Puerto Rico, Jamaica, the Bahamas, and Trinidad and Tobago – are a travellers’ paradise. Unspoilt beaches, coral reefs and world-class resorts define these laid-back towns and the most popular of all the islands, the Bahamas, draws millions of travellers to its islands each year

North America climate

North America’s climate varies throughout the continent. The US and Canada have four distinct seasons while most of the other countries including Cuba and Mexico have two. On the other hand, the islands closer to the Caribbean Sea – Jamaica and the Bahamas – are year-round destinations. 

What is good to know if travelling to North America?

  • Visit the captivating Grand Canyon in the US, with the Grand Canyon Skywalk you can inspect it from a glass walkway, 21 metres from the canyon’s rim.
  • If you’re a lover of the great outdoors then head to Canada’s British Columbia. Its snowcapped summits, rivers and forests, and quaint villages will leave you in awe.
  • Take a trip to Mexico’s Calakmul Biosphere Reserve on the Yucatán Peninsula. Inside this 1.8 million-acre lush jungle you’ll find the walled city of Calakmul with a spectacular pyramid: the tallest in the Yucatán.
  • In Cuba the Valle de los Ingenios can’t be missed. Scattered throughout the valley are 12 sugar mill ruins from the 19th century and the Manaca Iznaga estate, a hacienda owned by Pedro Iznaga, a notorious slave trafficker.
  • Reggae fans, or anyone visiting Jamaica, should head to the Nine Mile Museum in the village of Nine Mile, Bob Marley’s birthplace and resting place. The museum houses all sorts of paraphernalia including the inspirational Mt Zion Rock where he learned to play the guitar.
  • The Hacienda Beuna Vista in Puerto Rico’s colonial city Ponce is well worth a visit. Built in 1833, it was once one of the most successful coffee, corn and citrus plantations on the island. There’s also a two-story-tall waterwheel, turned by water from the river.
  • While visiting the Bahamas, take a break from the beach and walk along the trails leading to the pine trees, mangrove swamps and large caves of the Lucayan National Park.
  • Watch sugar cane carefully transform into refined sugar at the Santa Rosa sugar refinery in Panama’s agricultural town, Aguadulce. The best time to go is during grinding season from the middle of January until the middle of March.
  • Deep inside the rainforest in Trinidad and Tobago’s Northern Range is the Asa Wright Nature Center, a former cocoa and coffee plantation and home to a huge number of native mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and butterflies, as well as more than 2,200 species of flowering plants.
  • Take a scenic drive past contrasting landscapes and coffee plantations up to Costa Rica’s Parque Nacional Volcán Arenal. Hike across the lava fields of the active Arenal Volcano or take a sunset boat tour around the Laguna de Arenal.
  • When is the best time to fly to North America?

    Depending on the time of year you plan to visit North America and the purpose of your trip, the two biggest countries in the continent, America and Canada, both have diverse weather conditions. During winter the eastern part of the US gets considerably colder than the West Coast and in Canada the weather is bitterly cold throughout the country. The best time to visit both countries is late spring (April to May) and early autumn (September to early October). Mexico and Panama have two seasons: dry and wet; the dry season lasts from mid-December until mid-April and the rainy season is from May to November. The Caribbean countries enjoy warm weather all year round with a few rainy spells in summer from May to November.

  • What is the best way to travel around North America?

    The countries of North America cover a vast area, and getting around is easiest by plane. If you're flying to North America and plan to travel around the United States, Mexico, Canada and beyond, then you'll find both domestic and international flights. If you are staying in one location or wish to explore destinations off the beaten track, you can hire a car. Before you book flights to North America, find out what deals your destination airport offers on vehicle rental. You can also find inter-state buses with affordable deals for long-distance travel to complement your North America flight deals.

  • What are some things to do in North America?

    Once you book flights to North America, get ready for a real adventure! Looking for an active holiday? Mountain-goers can enjoy trekking through the Canadian Rockies, while surf-enthusiasts can catch a wave in Hawaii. Cities like New York and New Orleans are famous for their diverse cultural and culinary highlights. Meanwhile, Mexico is a popular destination during the southern hemisphere's winter. Stroll along miles of palm-lined beaches, and learn about the history of indigenous cultures such as the Maya and the Aztecs as you explore ancient ruins.

Visa requirements differ in each country, so check restrictions when booking direct or transit flights to North America. Tourist visas for the United States are valid for trips of up to six months and can be applied for at an embassy or visa application centre. South African passport holders must also apply for a Temporary Resident Visa to visit Canada or a Multiple Immigration Form for Mexico. Remember that visas will add an extra cost on top of your North America airfare.
