• Visit the world's second smallest country

    2011-10-17

    Tuvalu is a tiny, yet mighty, nation that makes for a thrilling destination to choose while planning an adventure travel trip. Covered in tropical vegetation and pristine beaches, these wonderful islands in the South Pacific are a perfect choice for those who enjoy the outdoors and soaking up the sun.

    Baby boomers who are interested in exotic and incredible wildlife can spend time at the Funafuti Marine Conservation Area. According to Lonely Planet, visitors can find the main complex on the Nanumea Atoll, which is home to some beautiful lagoons, coral reefs and colorful fish and fowl.

    A tropical island may seem like a strange place for stamp collecting, but Tuvalu is home to the Philatelic Bureau , which is a center for stamp-related items and more, reports World Travel Guide. Those seeking uncirculated Tuvalu stamps can visit this location, which also offers literature on the island nation's history.

    Travelers visiting Tuvalu from November to April should be wary of possible inclement weather, however. Packing rain gear may be smart, as this area is sometimes prone to tropical cyclones or rains during this time.
