Awesome Azores: Archipelago Offers Adventure, Luxury

Climbing through cliffs and rappelling down waterfalls. The heart-pounding thrill of watching a bull run by you in the street. Ooohing and ahhing as your small boat chases a pod of dolphins in the Atlantic. This is all within a day’s adventures in the Azores, the archipelago once under Portuguese rule that’s now mostly autonomous — and still under the radar as far as a great family destination. From new seaside luxury hotels to plenty of activities and unique microclimates that provide tasty farm-to-table fare, there’s a lot going on in a little space on these nine islands.
