Plan your trip properly
The fresh breeze blowing from the sea, the scent of freshly smoked lobsters, a superb view of the twilight with the thinnest point of the golden sunbeams caressing the sand on the beach, the sweetness of ice-cold mojitos … this is the paradise of all holiday birds. After ten long and tiring months of hectic schedules and office work, people are eagerly awaiting the summer, when they will finally be able to go on vacation and relax without tensions or worries. And when we talk about holidays, the first image that comes to mind is that of an island with a quiet beach, an ideal home and lots of greenery. Well, if you're one of those looking for stress relief, just pack your bags and go on an excursion to one of these beautiful islands … Maarten or Hawaii … it's your choice. But before planning your trip with any of these travel agents and booking a ticket, let's take a little time and analyze everything that should be a great place to stay so you do not end up in the wrong place.
Location is one of the most important factors to consider before planning a trip. An island with a quiet beach would be the ideal holiday destination, because of the serenity and freshness that such a place can offer. Make sure there is a lot of greenery on the island. Being in the middle of soothing greenery and blue waters can have a relaxing effect on your mind. If you are taking part in an adventure trip or a safari, you can consider a desert, a jungle or even a historic place. But since you are looking for a quiet and peaceful break, an island with a cool breeze would be the perfect choice.
Food should be both economical and soothing (well, expensive food can not do much to brighten your mood). Make sure fresh seafood is available 24 hours a day (seafood enhances the mood and agrees well with the decor of an island) as well as a variety local cuisine (ethnic cuisine plays an important role in making you want to be part of the place). But in case you are bored with the same everyday specialties, a backup of your home cooking should also be available. A good supply of fresh coconut water and cocktails are other indispensable elements of a perfect retreat.
A villa, a condo or a spacious hostel (which can be rented) facing the sea is preferable. The windows must be large and open enough for the light breeze to carry you away and cheer you up. Rooms must be well furnished and equipped with all necessary amenities, such as TV, refrigerator, dryer, water heater, air conditioning, bedding, cutlery, etc., as well as a large swimming pool. Room service must also be good, with regular cleaning and maintenance. And yes, beautiful window curtains are a must, if you value visual beauty. In addition to the aesthetic appearance, the place must also be sufficiently safe and well equipped (hurricane shutters, emergency exits, etc.) to counter all natural hazards such as hurricanes and storms.
Cannibal tribes and hostile places infesting beautiful islands belong to the past and are found only in fiction. Most tourist islands are small towns with a modern civilian population, maintained by professional organizations and corporations. But even so, make sure you have good relations with the natives. Learn at least some words in the native language and read and study a lot about local culture and customs. Having a local travel guide with you will help a lot. If you manage to establish a friendly relationship with natives, your stay would become more enjoyable because you would have plenty of opportunities to socialize.
Entertainment and Nightlife
Entertainment is an important part of a good vacation. A perfect place would be full of opportunities for entertainment and nightlife such as casinos, discos and pubs, where you can enjoy some beer and cocktail mugs and have a good time. But if you are looking for something simpler, then a party with a barbecue will do the trick.
Vacation locations should also have all necessary amenities at accessible distances. Police station, airport, local post office, post office, bank, pharmacy, ATM machine, cybercafés, hospitals, stationery stores, grocery stores, etc. must be near your place and always accessible in case of emergency.
Some Places to See
Some cool places to spend your summer days in absolute peace would be St. Louis. The Maarten Islands, the Hawaiian Islands, the Palm Islands (Dubai), Goa (India), etc. are full of luxury villas, condos and inns in the midst of picturesque beauty to offer you the best time of your life.
