    No mention of any of the dozens of bars catering to those tubing in Vang Vien, Laos?

    Damn, how’d I miss that one on Bantayan? The island’s really not that big!

    Great collection, Kristin.

    I’m always confused why some places have a pool just five feet from the ocean, hahaha. But damn, those all look fantastic.

    The Tabacon resort in Costa Rica is especially awesome because Arenal volcano is still very active (or at least it was 10 years ago, when I was there), so there’s a pretty good chance you can watch it erupt while sitting in the pool drinking a cocktail out of a coconut. It’s like a show put on for the tourists, except that it’s real.
