When it comes to adventure travel the destination should be as adventurous as the activities planned. The day after we got to Eilat, we visited the Underwater Observatory with the rest of our tour group. This Underwater Observatory is built into a coral reef, and is one of the largest seaquariums in the world. Through a glass type observatory built into the sea-bed, we were able to interact with the most beautiful and colorful sea creatures I’ve ever seen. Legal currency exchange outlets line the Ben Yehuda Street pedestrian mall, Jaffa Road, and King George Street travel insurance (they offer slightly better rates than banks, will exchange money in less time, and charge no commission; they also have longer hours of operation). You don’t even have to shop around because they all offer the same rates. For those interested in ecotourism and wildlife, combining Manaus with a river trip is the perfect answer. The former provides an opportunity to really study the unusual Amazon species in depth and at a close range. Traveling on the river and trekking in the rainforest then provide a view of wildlife in their natural habitat but at a distance.
