North America offers a vast expanse of places to discover, from the multiculturalism of the different U.S. states and their charming routes, to the natural beauty of Canada, or the thousand and one colors of Mexico, just to highlight a few qualities.
Whether you are planning a trip to the American West Coast, which includes the states of California, Oregon, Alaska and Hawaii among others, to the East Coast (which includes New York among others), to Canada or to Mexico, North America offers an unparalleled experience for any traveler.
It should be noted that it is advisable to take out travel insurance before traveling in North America, as health care is generally private and costs can be very high.
We also recommend choosing a travel insurance that not only covers medical expenses, but also offers luggage coverage, as well as other services that will be very useful such as trip extension or repatriation due to illness, among others.

The same one that has witnessed the most mythical scene of King Kong and the scene where some of the greatest kisses in the history of celluloid have been filmed. With a height of 381 meters, the Empire State Building held the title of tallest building in the world until 1972.
