Diamond Resorts International Timeshare -- Offers Travel Destinations for Thrill-Seeking Explorers

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - July 12, 2016) - For some people, a vacation means more than just relaxing by the pool and naps on the beach. Those are the travelers in search of pristine and unspoiled lands, a place that few others have discovered yet. Diamond Resorts International® timeshare ownership industry leader with over 420 managed and affiliated properties and cruise itineraries, reveals some of the most unexplored vacation destinations on Earth.

Patagonia, at the southern tip of Argentina and Chile, separating the Atlantic Ocean from the Pacific Ocean, is a dream come true for the outdoor adventurer, according to Diamond Resorts International® timeshare experts. The landscape is almost untouched by human hands, with unparalleled vistas of the Andes mountains glaciers. During the winter months in the southern hemisphere (mid-June through September), Patagonia offers world-class skiing. Some of the best whale-watching spots on earth are here, with the enormous, graceful mammals swimming through the area in September and October.

The small South Asian country of Bhutan is nestled in the mountains between China and the eastern arm of India, about half the size of the state of Indiana. Entirely landlocked, it was only accessible by foot and remained virtually unvisited by foreigners until the 1960s. Since then, modern transportation infrastructure of roads and airports has been built allowing some ease of travel, but not without a bit of bureaucracy. The government of Bhutan maintains a strict tourism policy that requires visitors to book only through an approved travel program and to pay a tier of travel fees. But it is worth the effort, because this country of less than one million people offers unspoiled festivals, mountains and culture to satisfy the desires of any adventure purist.

Compared to Copper Canyon in Northern Mexico, the United States' Grand Canyon is a cute hole in the ground. This is a meta-collection of more than 20 canyons, making it about seven times larger than the Grand Canyon. Options for seeing the canyon are many, whether by foot, train, on a bike, horseback or while white-water rafting. The indigenous people who live in Copper Canyon retain their simple and rustic way of life, but some tour groups can help to give visitors a taste of their culture, food and festivals of the locals in the Tarahumara Mountains.

Ediposos, Greece, has been drawing people to its natural hot springs for thousands of years. Believed to have magical healing properties, emperors including Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius, Constantine the Great and the great philosopher Aristotle all came to Ediposos to be restored. And no wonder, because legend has it they were created by Queen Athena and her brother Hephaestus as a place for Hercules to rest his aching muscles after feats of strength and valor.
