Considering traveling to Costa Rica? Costa Rica Nature Escape would love to assist you!

Costa Rica Nature Escape has been a tour operator and travel agency since 1994. Its governmental license is OT-340, and it has earned level 3 CST for its sustainability efforts. Visit the wonders of Costa Rica, the country that encompasses 6% of the world's biodiversity. It is an ideal vacation spot for groups, families, couples, and individual travelers who are seeking close-to-nature experiences. Costa Rica offers a great variety of natural venues, more than 25% of its land and the majority of its waters are protected. Encounter a wide variety of forests, breathtaking flora and fauna, active volcanoes, and tropical beaches with warm sea water, always enhanced by the friendliness of the "ticos" (native Costa Ricans).

If you enjoy a little adventure, Costa Rica Nature Escape can arrange for adrenaline-filled tours on various levels and for all ages, like white water rafting, zip-lining, and more! As if starting up a business and marketing a new brand is not challenging enough on its own merits, doing it in a new top level domain name space adds its own share of trepidation along the way. When AURA Travel was an online start-up, it was set to revolutionize, commoditize, and standardize the holiday rentals by owner niche of the accommodation market, while providing an online platform that easily facilitates listing, search, and booking of holiday rental properties. The business name the company chose – AURA - has its own historical reasons and drives. This was only half of the challenge. Choosing an online domain name extension was the other half.

Because AURA was effectively launching a new online, unknown brand, the domain name extension in itself was considered a quintessential component of the brand. The popular TLDs (i.e., .com domain space) was not only saturated, but also somehow monotonously insignificant due its popularity.

Scouting the web for alternatives, AURA arrived at the .travel extension as a part of a number of domain name spaces offering specialization for different industry verticals. The .travel domain made sense instantly. This is what AURA’s new business was offering - accommodation for people who travel - for business, for pleasure, or for no reason at all. What it did, is what travelers needed, whether looking for a place to stay while in vacation around the globe, or booking a weekend escape a couple of hours’ drive away. As much as the domain name made sense, it was initially dismissed, because at the time it was too new and unknown. Let's face it, who is not scared of the unknown? Eventually, however, AURA came back to it and decided to launch its brand new business on a brand new domain name space that made sense to what it did.

The company was excited and full of start-up spirit. It was all new and starting from scratch, so why not give it a go? The company was no longer just AURA - it became Now the results speak for themselves. AURA considers its journey so far a great success and is looking forward to further expanding globally. The company will never give up its identity for the world. AURA welcomes anyone who wishes to join them - property owners, travelers looking for accommodation, or industry peers wanting to improve the status quo.

Diverse travel to be discovered in Ecuador

Ecuador is located on the equatorial line in northwestern South America, bordering the Pacific Ocean to the west, Colombia to the north, and Peru to the south and east. Ecuador is the eighth largest country in South America, at roughly the size of the US state of Nevada. Ecuador is 283,561 square kilometers in size and has a very diverse geography.

Ecuador has four geographical regions: The Andes (La Sierra), the Amazon Rainforest (El Oriente), La Costa (The Coast), and the Galapagos Islands. The Galapagos Islands are located around 1,000 kilometers west of mainland Ecuador. The volcanic islands have a subtropical climate and are marked by beaches and forests. During the Galápagos Islands' dry season, which runs from June to December, the weather is cooler and windier. From October to May, the weather is warmer and there is frequently light rain.

The coast runs along the west coast and features low mountains, valleys, plains, mangroves, rivers, and rainforests. The coast has a tropical climate, and is hot and humid. The coast is cloudy, cooler, and dry from May to December, and hotter and rainier from January to April. The Andes region, or central highlands, lying between the western coastal lowlands and the eastern jungles, consists of mountain ranges, foothills, and valleys.

The two sides of the Andes, the Western and Eastern Andes contain 60 volcanoes with an average altitude of 7,000 feet, covering a distance of 400 km from the northern to the southern Andes. This is called the “Avenue of the Volcanoes.” Due to the altitude, the Andes region has cool, spring-like weather, with a great deal of sunshine. Temperatures vary throughout the day. The highlands are overcast and wet during the rainy season (October-May), and drier, with mild showers, common in the afternoon, during the dry season (June-September).

The Amazon region is east of the Andes, and it borders Colombia and Peru, and contains part of the Amazon rainforest, as well as rivers and rolling jungles. Three active volcanoes are located in Ecuador’s Amazon rainforest: Sangay, Reventador and Sumaco. This is the only country where three active volcanoes are located inside the Amazon rainforest, The Amazon is hot and humid, and receives a significant amount of rainfall year-round. The Amazon is the wettest from June to August.
Ecuador uses the US dollar as its currency. Natural landscapes make up a good deal of the land mass—the Amazon alone takes up about 50% of the land area.

“The past year has been truly outstanding for us and we are overjoyed to have been selected to receive this iconic global award. This accolade is a further validation of the great efforts we undertake to promote and lead the way in authentic experiences that aim to always protect, preserve and enhance the beautiful environment in which we are so fortunate to operate. We applied in the category 'Sense of Place," because we see our unique Auckland-based business as having a mission to always go the extra mile to leave our environment in a better place than how we found it, plus to always strive to lead the way for others to follow in Ecotourism. We see this latest accolade by National Geographic as one of the world’s most respected organizations as further motivation to keep improving for the benefit of the many stakeholders that are involved in our unique business,” say Neill and Ceillhe Sperath, Founders and Directors of TIME Unlimited Tours.

ETOA has worked with .travel domain since its inception

ETOA, the European Tourism Association, is a leading trade association of over 850 travel industry members. We have worked with .travel since its inception, and are proud to help our members choose the right .travel domain name for them. We ourselves have several .travel sites for our flagship events. Using these sites helps showcase our industry, and we plan to have more in the future.

Technology and its ever-evolving usage has transformed the visitor economy in recent years. It has altered the way travellers research, book and enjoy their experiences, as well as how travel businesses talk to each other and partnerships are made.

The consumer purchase cycle for travel products has changed. A short chat with a travel agent has been replaced by a content-rich research phase, carried out across multiple devices. We trust our own networks the most, and integrated review technologies and unfettered access to targeted social media platforms have made access to these options easier than ever. Today’s travellers want to share their experiences during and after their trip; there has never been a better time to be an Instagrammable destination or attraction.

The ability to be seen is not always a good thing for some destinations, though. There is now such a problem as too many visitors, and we are starting to see a backlash from cities such as Venice and Barcelona, who are struggling to support increased visitor numbers to some of their once lesser-known corners.

For businesses trying to keep up, personalisation is the name of the game. Increased access to large amounts of consumer data are making it easier to tailor-make content to the individual, and consumers increasingly expect to see this.

Ecuador: mega-diverse country for travel

Ecuador is perhaps one of the most mega-diverse countries per square kilometer on the planet. In relation to its surface, Ecuador holds the greatest amount of species of plants and animals on Earth. At latitude 0 degrees in the middle of the world, shadows disappear in the presence of the mid-day sun. It is a destination where everything feels close and where each region is a different world, from the Galapagos Islands to the Pacific Coast, to the Andes Highlands and the Amazon Rainforest.

Ecuador’s key tourism products are eco-tourism, adventure tourism, and cultural tourism. Here, travelers journey through a life-changing experience that generates personal growth and make them better human beings. As far as city life, Quito, is filled with bright blue skies and art, and bears the largest best preserved colonial center of Latin America fused with a modern and contemporary city. Museums, churches, convents, parks, skyscrapers, and town squares captivate visitors from all over the world.

Named after Pichincha and surrounded by powerful green mountains, visitors may observe 14 volcanoes with over 4,000 meters of altitude from different places of the city. The capital and political center of Ecuador was the first city named by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1978, and was the winner as the best destination of South America. Ecuador uses the .travel domain to gain that instant brand recognition.

Website visitors know that they will be “traveling” to Ecuador when they see the .travel web site extension.
