The Better Beyond ® aims to inspire curious adventurers to travel deeper and enjoy truly immersive experiences. It also strives to provide solutions for people who are looking to make better, more responsible travel choices. The Better Beyond is an enthusiastic supporter of those tourism operators who are putting into practice the 4Cs of Responsible Tourism: Community, Conservation, Culture and Commerce.


My name is Tara Cannon and The Better Beyond is a labour of love. For over a dozen years, I have been writing about unique family travel adventures on my site Pint Size Pilot. With this new site, I look forward to sharing with you more travel guides to special destinations around the world (this time, with less of a family focus). My goal is to encourage and inspire you to take a leap of faith with me and try something new – like Mexico City over Miami, or Moorea over Maui.

Let's Work Together Better Beyond


Through my written and visual content, I love to tell the stories of lesser-known destinations, tour providers, and lodgings that are endeavoring to create unique and thoughtfully curated experiences. I want to share with my audience the places that I am so excited to be visiting that I can barely sleep at night. If this sounds like your brand, please get it in touch via email or by direct message on Instagram @thebetterbeyond
