We segue from southern Florida, moving from design-loving Miami and Hemingway's colorful Key West to the pastel houses and leafy plazas of Yucatan capital Merida. Embracing ancient Mayan civilization, we might visit Uxmal and Chichen Itza or take a soul-cleansing, shaman-led wellness ceremony at a cenote - almost surreally stunning fresh-water sinkhole. We seek flamingos at the Rio Lagartos lagoon and mind-bending pink lakes at Las Coloradas.

New Orleans, for parades, paddle boats, joy and jazz. We wander elegantly faded Bywater and the French Quarter, it's wraparound wrought-iron balconies seemingly draping the facades in lace and join the Big Easy's revelry of live music from the famed Preservation Hall to jazz clubs and street jamborees. Recuperation comes from our Bahamas private island retreat before Miami pulls us into her orbit once more.

Progreso is a coastal town known for its beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere.

The main attraction in Progreso is its long pier, known as the Malecon, which is lined with restaurants, bars, and shops, and is a great spot for strolling, fishing, or enjoying the sunset. Progreso's beaches are known for their white sand and calm waters, making them ideal for swimming, sunbathing, or water sports such as kayaking or paddleboarding.

Intact was fortunate to remain the oldest neighborhood, the French Quarter, the flagship Jackson Square and the magnificent buildings that surround it. There are also the bustling French Market and many of the most interesting museums in New Orleans, such as Conti Historical Wax Museum (with wax statues of great personalities of history) or Historic Voodoo Museum (dedicated to voodoo). The equally famous Royal Street will amaze you with its lovely antique shops and galleries, which are placed among the most expensive places in the world. Exceptional interest present  the art galleries, shops, cafes and restaurants of Magazine Street, which runs many of the historic neighborhoods of New Orleans, such as the Garden District, peer "adversary" of the French Quarter. Stroll to Louis Armstrong Park at French Quarter or visit the zoo in Audubon Park.
