pexels-photo-38674

The best thing about travelling is travelling with someone close to you. Not only do you get to go on adventures and a world of discovery, you get to rediscover each other and everything you may have been missing while raising a family or working. Of course, even those couples young and in love head off for a weekend away to get to know each other, it’s not just for those on a path of rediscovery. However, luxury is where it’s at and taking a few weekends off through the year for a little indulgence is good for the soul and we wholly recommend it!

It’s not often you get to say you’ve been travelling around the world. Aside from the usual choices of schlepping it through the desert, rainforests and jungles to discover new cultures, and backpacking across continents, there’s a little bit of luxury waiting for you. Choosing to go away for a weekend instead of long term travelling can be far more exciting – and cheap! White sandy beaches are the choice of sun lovers but what about you winter worshippers out there? Where should you go to soak up the scenery and stay snuggled from the snow? There are some beautiful places to visit across the USA and Canada so if you are whisking your partner away for a weekend and you want something different from the usual sun spots, check out our list of amazing weekenders.

With a nation that covers ten million square acres of land, you get plenty of choice with Canada, and all of it is geared toward outdoor living. Whether you want to ski down the side of a mountain in Whistler or enjoy some of the city life in Vancouver, Canada has pretty much anything you may be looking for. We’ll start with the Canadian spots for weekend winter wonders and then move onto the USA and hopefully by the end of this post, you’ll be enchanted to book your break away!

Vancouver is a rather beautiful city with many coastal resorts that have a ton to offer. Big city excitement for those who want to explore, shop and enjoy delicious food as well as natural splendour to be enjoyed. World class shopping facilities in the form of Oakridge Shopping Centre can give you somewhere to explore and buy souvenirs should you choose to and those who love the outdoors will be amazed and awed by Stanley Park. A weekend away here can suit any adventurer, especially those looking for a little down time with nature.

Whisk your wonder away to Whistler. Hole yourselves up in one of the biggest and best ski destinations in the world, with the right terrains and just a touch of luxury to suit everyone. Whistler and Blackcomb join together to form one resort and if you want some great snow, take your weekend away from November to May. If you’re not much into skiing or snowboarding, you can dig-sled, snowmobile and cross-country down the mountains. In the resorts, you could find indoor activities, hot tubs and great food. There’s really something for everyone here and the scenery itself is simply breath-takingly beautiful.

If you want something a little more intimate, Lake Louise is an enchanting place to visit for the weekend. It’s very popular with its skiers of any level and it is backed by the Banff National Park, which has majestic mountains and over four thousand acres of skiable ground. There’s a lake for those hand-in-hand walks and you can toboggan, ride horse-drawn sleighs and go snow-shoeing for something that bit different.

Heading down to the USA, Jackson Hole in Wyoming is home of the Tetons. A remarkably beautiful place to be, you can stay in hotels, resorts or there is an amazing lodging option available for those who want a truly authentic mountain experience. Close to Yellowstone National Park, Jackson Hole is one of the most luxurious places to visit for ski lovers and those who love an adventure. Dripping in history, there’s more than just a mountain or two to explore so a weekend away holed up in a beautiful lodge will be attractive to anyone.

One of the most popular places to ski in America is Aspen, Colorado. It’s renowned around the world and visitors from all over the place go there to ski, explore and enjoy the surrounding villages. Weekends away require a luxury atmosphere and Aspen has it in spades with a quaint style and first class hotel options. The town itself is traditional and warm in hospitality. It’s not all skiing either, with spa options available and guided walks in the mountain being an option for the very brave of heart.

Of course, there are plenty of winter weekend options throughout both incredible countries and the ones listed above are merely a small snippet of what you can find. Most of the time in the winter months, people seek the sun and warmth to enjoy and use it as a time to get away from the cold that can be pretty bitter. There is a beauty, however, in the mountains and the snowy scenes. It encompasses comfort, luxury and fun and being able to whip off on a weekend here and there to get your adrenaline pumping on the slopes or simply explore the scenery together is the ultimate fun option. Why bother with the local gym when you could strap on your snowboard and get a workout in that way?

It’s not just that either, it’s the fantastic food, accommodation and shopping in resorts to enjoy that really makes a winter weekend. Curling up by a fire while a snowstorm rages outside, building snowmen and enjoying time in a hot tub all make a winter weekend away wonderful. Choosing snow over sun can be the best weekend you have ever had so all you have to do now is book somewhere amazing to enjoy for the weekend. Truly, what’s stopping you?

Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Canada’s Coolest Provinces

Canada is such a huge country, there are various provinces and cities which you could visit, each of which has their own unique culture and attractions. Unfortunately, the sheer size of the country makes it pretty difficult to travel around and see everything during one trip. Most people see one area of the country and plan to return on another occasion to explore the rest of the country. But where exactly do you start when it comes to a country as huge as Canada? Well, here are some of the best provinces and everything they have to offer. Hopefully, this makes planning your whole trip a lot easier, and you don’t get too spoiled for choice!

Ontario

Located in east-central Canada, Ontario is home to some pretty impressive cities. Not only is it the home of the country’s capital city, Ottawa, but it is also where you will find Toronto, Canada’s largest city with a population of just over 2.6 million. Even though Toronto may not be the capital city of the whole country, it is still the capital of the province of Ontario. There are many famous landmarks in the city, including the CN Tower and the Royal Ontario Museum. If you are into your ice hockey, this city is well worth a visit as it is also home to the Hockey Hall of Fame. See how many famous players you can spot in this popular attraction! Ontario isn’t just about cosmopolitan cities, though. There are also lots of natural landmarks waiting to be explored! Take a trip down to the American-Canadian border to see the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. There are even more bracing landscapes to see at the Southern Georgian Bay. Don’t forget to pack your camera!

Quebec

Canada is known for having two official languages, French and English. Even though English is the predominantly spoken language across the country, the province of Quebec is largely French-speaking. But don’t let that put you off, as most people who live in this area are bilingual. However, it is worth bearing in mind that most signs and menus will be in French, so it could be handy taking a phrasebook with you! The two main cities in this province are Quebec City and Montreal. Montreal is possible the most well-known of the two and features famous landmarks including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Notre-Dame Basilica. Quebec is also popular with skiers as there are a few different ski resorts dotted around in the north. Mont-Tremblant gets busy during the winter, though you can find some reasonable deals by looking at various sites like Hotel Mont Tremblant.

Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is one of Canada’s maritime provinces, which are the easternmost provinces. They make up Atlantic Canada. Explore is known for its bracing landscape and scenic beaches. If you want to dip your toes into the Atlantic Ocean, you need to head straight to the Bay of Fundy. This is an excellent destination to go to if you want to go whale watching as you will be able to see some of the twelve species of whales that live in the bay! If you want to lounge on a beach, go to Melmerby Beach Provincial Park. The beaches in this park benefit from warm temperatures, and many people head there for surfing and sunbathing. Another thing that Nova Scotia is known for is its vineyards. Ever tried Canadian wine before? Well, you will have plenty of chance to once you are in Nova Scotia, as the province features many notable vineyards and wineries. The soil conditions and temperate climate have helped to make this province Canada’s most famous wine country, and you can explore the different grapes on one of the many wine tours.

Newfoundland and Labrador

The most easterly of Canada’s provinces, Newfoundland and Labrador is another of the country’s maritimes. Even though the are is thought of by many as being quite remote, it is only a three-hour plane journey from Toronto. And, believe us, that journey is worth all the effort! There are loads of amazing natural landscapes in the province, making it a great place to go to for birdwatching, hiking, and fishing. There are also lots of boat tours that take people out diving and whale watching in the Atlantic Ocean. There are four national parks located in Newfoundland and Labrador, including the Terra Nova National Park. Situated right on the Canadian coast, this park features both mountainscapes and secluded beaches and is known for its kayaking, boat trips, and golf. There are also lots of theater performances held in Terra Nova through the summer so you will find plenty of evening entertainment!

harbour-1284265_960_720
British Columbia

Right on the western side of Canada, British Columbia is where you will find the city of Vancouver. This city may be quite sizeable, but it benefits from having very walkable neighborhoods, and the metropolis is also very close to lots of natural areas and stunning countryside. There is lots to keep you very busy in Vancouver, from strolling around the farmer’s market on Granville Island to coming face to face with some curious fish species in the Vancouver Aquarium. But there is a whole lot more to British Columbia than just Vancouver. The province has a great reputation for its annual events and festivals, including the Surrey International Children’s Festival and the Kitimat Canada Day Celebrations. If you are into your outdoor activities, then why not head to the West Kootenays. This area becomes a popular ski area in the winter, but it is just as popular in the summer when lots of hikers and mountain bikers head here.  Lots of boat and ferry trips leave from the Kootenays and take visitors on trips around the large lakes.

As you can see, wherever you go in Canada, you are sure to have lots of fun and experience a varied culture. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to plan your Canadian trip right now!

How to cheer yourself up when you return from travelling

 

4013669692_4535d61ca2_o

For those of us who suffer from wanderlust, who constantly look for the next chance available to escape the confines of the traditional 9 to 5 job, returning home can be an upsetting experience. Although we always miss our close friends and family, we instantly miss the sense of freedom that travel brings. With this in mind, I thought I’d put together a quick post on some of the things you can do to cheer yourself up and rid yourself of the holiday blues, when you next get back from the holiday of a lifetime.

Stock up the fridge

First and foremost, grab your shopping bags and head to the supermarket. A sure-fire way to improve your mood is to fill your cupboards with all your favourite food and drink that you missed while you were away. Whether it’s your favourite bar of chocolate, or a cup of herbal tea that you can’t get anywhere else, it will instantly push all the right buttons to make you feel better.

Have a pampering day

One of the things I always miss the most when travelling is home comforts. When you’re bouncing from place to place, the chances of stopping for a nice hot bath with your favourite bath bomb somewhere are slim to none, so treat yourself to the ultimate pampering experience. Face masks, bath crystals, a manicure – whatever helps you to wind down and relax should be top on your list of activities for when you get back home.

Make a photo album

Just because your latest break is over doesn’t mean you have to forget all about it. You can re-live all those priceless moments from your trip by printing off your favourite snaps and putting together a themed photo alum or scrapbook. However, this is probably going to be an expensive task if you love to take photos of everything like I do, and can’t bear to leave any of them out. My top tip for saving money here is to buy things like photo paper, printer ink and hp toner from cartridgepeople.com, as you’ll get much better quality for a lower price.

Make more plans!

Although you might not be able to afford to jump right back onto another plane, you can certainly still make plenty of plans! Organise a day trip with your girl gang so you get to reconnect with all your favourite friends – these are the people you’ve missed most whilst on your trip, so seeing them again is sure to lift your mood. Even just going around to cook with your family or visit relatives is a way of enjoying some quality time with people you love.

I hope this post has helped to lift your spirits now that you’re back home and secretly lusting after another holiday. Do you have any other little routines you use to make yourself feel better? Let me know in the comments section below.

Buenas Vacaciones! Three Countries In Central America To Add To Your Bucket List

When it comes to travelling to beautiful, far flung places, Central America is one of the most unfairly overlooked places in the world. With incredible culture and food, it’s one of the regions that’s most worth visiting in the world. Here are three countries that are particularly worth a look…

Panama

beach-1665370_960_720.jpg

No matter what sort of vacation you want, you can find it in Panama. With the Caribbean Sea to its north and the Pacific Ocean to its south, its tourist industry is rapidly growing. Panama City is reminiscent of Miami with its gleaming buildings, and if your Spanish isn’t great then there’s no problem as a lot of its residents speak English. If you want a chilled out beach vacation then Panama is perfect for you, but there’s also a lot of nature for you to explore – you can go to the waterfalls in the highlands near Santa Fé, and explore the biodiversity of the Darién along with snorkelling at Boros del Toro and scuba diving with whale sharks in the Pacific.

Costa Rica

keel-billed-toucan-1021048_960_720

Probably the most popular tourist destination in Central America, Costa Rica is absolutely worth a visit with its glorious coastlines, white sand beaches and heavenly turquoise oceans. The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is shrouded – obviously! – in clouds and boasts lush green mountains and a tropical landscape along with zip lines that you can explore and natural beauty that will blow your mind. The Arenal Volcano is also worth a visit. Until recently it was the most active volcano in Costa Rica, but don’t worry – it won’t spew lava at you since it entered a resting cycle in 2010. You could visit a turtle sanctuary in Tortuguero National Park in the northeast of the country, where you can see the sea turtles that hatch and nest on the beach. If you want to volunteer in Costa Rica, you can easily do so, particularly if you’re interested in nature and biodiversity. Whether you want to work with nature, particularly turtles, sports education, at an orphanage, or with children with special needs, you’ll find the volunteering trip that you want in Costa Rica.

Guatemala

guatemala-1426549_960_720

Tourists will find exactly what they want in Guatemala, whether that’s all night partying, a chilled out luxury beach vacation, or anyone seeking adventure. With cobbled streets and colonial architecture, Guatemala is also a cultural feast for anyone who wants to find out about the history of Central America and not just the wildlife. The Mayan Ruins of Tikal, near the border of Belize, was occupied between 600 BC and AD 900, and has more than 3000 structures, including pyramids, temples and an acropolis. It’s one of the most important and largest Mayan archaeological sites in existence. Lake Atitlán is an area of incredible beauty and absolutely worth a visit. It was formed in a volcanic crater and has three volcanoes as its backdrop. With a lot of spiritual and new age centres in nearby cities and villages, this is also a great place to visit for the slightly more alternative traveller.

Luxury Breaks To Rekindle The Romance

Relationships are something that needs to be maintained. Mariggages or anything long term takes a commitment from one another to ensure that you communicate. Otherwise, that spark can fizzle out, and you can end up wondering why you are even together. It’s a scary prospect, but many marriages are now ending in divorce far more often than they used to. Starting a family, and even family issues can all help crumble your relationship. So ensure you keep the romance alive as often as you can. One way to do this is to try and enjoy a break away together when the opportunity arises. With that in mind, here are some of the most luxury breaks to rekindle the romance.

Capture the picture perfect opportunities Santorini has to offer

Santorini is a Greek Island that has grown in popularity in recent years. Known for it’s breathtaking scenery and stunning backdrops, it’s easy to see why. It won’t be long before you are sauntering the streets hand in hand enjoying wine and good food while marveling at the pretty scenery. If you want luxury then considering Santorini Villas or boutique hotels would offer the perfect accommodation for an escape from mundane life. Enjoy the tasty Greek cuisine in a local taverna and catch a glimpse at the stars in the evening light. The perfect place for romance to be rekindled for sure.

Head to The Maldives for a second honeymoon

Who can forget the magic that a honeymoon brings? Those long nights talking about the future, the plans you make and the dreams you wish to come true. But then fast forward to today, and you are both in the full throws of life, and your honeymoon can seem like a distant memory. This is when the chance to relive those precious moments could be enough to rekindle the spark in your relationship. Book an over the water villa, or stay in an all-inclusive hotel and just enjoy each others company once more. While living in lavish luxury.

Go on a trip of a lifetime to Australia

If you don’t have the commitments of a young family then why not book a trip of a lifetime to somewhere like Australia. Often this is the place that will rank high on anyone’s bucket list of places to go. You could enjoy the coffee culture Melbourne has to offer or take in the recognizable sites of Sydney. There is so much to do and see in this vast country that planning your trip will be essential.

Go all “Hygge” and get cozy with your loved one

Finally, you don’t have to travel too far to rekindle the romance. At the end of the day, it can be just at the heart of what you do for one another. So book a log cabin, get a fire roaring and light the candles. Hygge is the Danish way of coziness and promoting happiness within. It is commonly known that the Danish are the happiest people in the world. It’s all about being comfortable. Low lighting and embracing the indoors with good company. Just what the romance doctor ordered.

I hope these luxury breaks inspire you to rekindle the romance in your relationship.

Everything That You Need To Know About Planning A Trip To Cancun This Summer

Over the past few years, Cancun has become an increasingly popular travel destination. And it’s easy to see why – this Mexican island is truly beautiful. Five years ago it was all about Malaga, Zante, and Magaluf; now it’s all about Cancun. If this summer you’re hoping to hit the white sandy shores of this party island, you had better start planning. Bearing in mind that this is one of the most popular summer vacation spots, the sooner you book, the better.

Wondering why this is such a popular holiday spot – let me fill you in. Thanks to the fact it’s hot, has plenty of beaches, lots of things to see and do, and vibrant nightlife, Cancun has become a hotspot for tourists. Of course, Spain also offers a lot of the same things, but as Cancun is the new summer place to be, it’s incredibly popular.

Love the sound of taking a trip here this summer? Then keep reading for all the best tips and tricks for planning your trip.

Choose where you stay carefully

When it comes to picking where you stay, it’s best to opt for somewhere that comes recommended. While a lovely holiday destination, some parts of Cancun can be a little dodgy, so you need to be smart about where you stay. As a rule of thumb, steer clear of downtown Cancun, and stick to places that are close to the beach in the main resort area. While these hotels can be a little pricey, if you take a look at some Cancun holiday packages, you should be able to find a good deal. Obviously, before you pick a hotel, it’s important to research it and read the reviews on Tripadvisor.

Book your transfers at the same time as your tickets

When it comes to booking your plane tickets, you’ll most probably be looking for the best deal. There are plenty of deals online for plane tickets; it’s just a case of working out what the best option is. As well as booking your tickets in advance, it’s also worth getting your transfers booked. Don’t make the mistake of sorting out your transfers once you arrive, as in peak season you could be waiting hours. It’s best to get them booked early, so that you won’t have to wait around at the airport. Of course, if you’ve opted for a package holiday, you won’t need to worry about this.

Book excursions in advance

The best way to get out and about and see the island’s main sights is via excursions. Of course, you could book these once you arrive but if you want to ensure you don’t miss out, it’s best to book in advance. There are day trips to Cancun’s most amazing sights, like Chichen Itza or the Mayan Ruins of Tulum. For a day of fun and excitement, you can go to Xcaret Eco Theme Park or snorkeling off a catamaran. You can even opt to go caving or sea fishing. There’s lots to see and do here, so take your time to research what’s on offer and book any excursions beforehand.

There you have it, everything that you need to know about planning a trip to Cancun this summer.

Accommodation, Planning and Money-Saving Advice For A Disneyland Orlando Visit

disneyland-226725_960_720.jpg

Visiting Disneyland is every kid’s dream. Scratch that, it’s everybody’s dream! Even the sternest of adults wouldn’t be able to resist the temptation of the house of mouse.

The main attraction is Disneyland Florida, in Orlando. And straightaway, to clear the elephant in the room… it’s not going to be cheap. This article will offer you some money-saving advice, but you’ll still have to shell out a pretty penny.

But, to be honest, it’s worth it. Anyone who has been will tell you that. It’s the holiday of a lifetime, and you won’t regret the costs. Like any holiday, you need to find a hotel, plan the day, and execute that plan perfectly. If you have never been before, or want more tips for your second visit, you’re in the right place.

Plan to cater for yourself

Starting off with a more general holiday tip, but one that applies heavily to Disneyland. The costs of all-inclusive or on-site catering are ridiculously high, and it works out cheaper to buy food yourselves. Disneyland Florida is very close to local shops and amenities, so you will find it easy to locate a supermarket.

On-site hotels are usually way more expensive

Disney’s on-site hotels are nice, but very pricey. We’re after money-saving tips, remember? Choosing an off-site hotel will slash those accommodation costs. The only negative is that you’ll need to make a slightly longer journey to get to the park. But it’s not a big deal, as most hotels are close to the park anywhere. There are a ton of places to get cheap Orlando hotels, much like Hotwire.com, so don’t resort to those Disney ones straightaway.

 

disney-919924_960_720.jpg

Do not wait until you arrive to buy tickets!!

This is VITAL! You could get there and find the prices to be extortionate. You could get there and not have enough money to buy tickets. Buy them in advance. It will be cheaper. Disneyland has four theme parks, so plan to spend some time in each. There is a ticket option that allows you to visit all these parks, but it’s quite high. Go for the individual ones instead.

Much like the hotel, don’t use Disney’s website. There are many, many places that offer cheaper tickets, from attractionticketsdirect.co.uk to floridatix.com. Shop around for the cheapest deals. This is important, especially if you have a large group.

Arrive at the park before it opens

In order to get to the front of the line, and make the most of that ticket, get there early. You have paid for every second that the park is open, so use them. You’ll also beat the queues for rides and will get more time on each attraction as a result. Also, take in snacks, tissues and other amenities with you. It’s much cheaper than buying them on-site.

And that just about does it! Hopefully, these tips have helped you out somewhat, and you’re well on your way to Disney paradise. Orlando is a simple city to crack, so once you have shopped around for some good deals, you’re all ready to go. Have a great time!

How the Canadian Winter Almost Saved My Phone

It’s happened to even the most careful among us and it’s devastating. My confession: I am a hazard to my mobile. I can’t count how many times I’ve dropped my phone while rummaging through my purse, and I’ve had plenty of cracked screens in my life. The worst by far, though, is losing it in the water, which I did on my recent trip to Canada. It was the middle of February and I was having a cocktail at the heated indoor pool at the Sheraton Centre, making plans for the night ahead. Lucky for me, I’m a pro at rescuing drowned phones.

Cut the power

Once I fish it out of the pool, I always fight the instinct to see if it still works or, god forbid, finish the text I was in the middle of sending. The first thing I do is take the battery out ASAP to prevent a shortcircuit that will really do the phone in, then dry it off as best as possible. I’ve used dishcloths, paper towels, and even my own shirt when I’m in a pinch.

rice.png

Ice or rice

The rice trick is a classic: after taking out the battery and the SIM card, usually I just bury my phone in a bowl full of dried rice. It takes several hours to several days, but rice is one thirsty grain. It usually sucks out all the moisture and put your mobile back in working condition. One time, I was even out at a restaurant when it happened, and the kind server was more than understanding when I asked for my rice “extra al dente.” But here I was at a hotel pool in downtown in Toronto.That’s when I remembered another trick: wrap it up in paper towels and toss it in the freezer. The only problem was that I hadn’t thought to rent a fridge for my hotel room.What I did have was a balcony, a Ziploc bag, and a wicked Toronto winter.

Second hand replacements

Okay, so in the end, it turned out the circuits had already shorted long before I managed to run down to my hotel room. I was ages away from my contract coming up, and I was still in Canada in for a week. Online classifieds have always been my go-to for everything from bicycles to patio furniture. After asking the ex-pat friend I was visiting, she said that Canadians all use Kijiji. I usually take my time comparing prices (in this case I used Kijiji’s handy phone price checker which saved a ton of time!) and hold out for a good bargain, but I was on vacation, so I let distance be my deciding factor. If it wasn’t in downtown Toronto, it was someone else’s deal to snap up.

No more texting in the stall

After burning through bags full of rice and a couple of iPhones, I’ve learned that the best way to save a wet mobile is to keep it dry in the first place. As much as I’m married to my phone, I’ve learned to leave it alone on those poolside afternoons. The whole point is relaxing anyway, and I find spending some time away from the screen is the best way to decompress. The hardest task I’ve set myself, though, is to stop retreating to the restroom to text. If you can’t text at the table, maybe it just has to wait. When the itch to get in touch takes over, take it out to the sidewalk.

Helpful Tips and Tricks to Use on your Holiday

Tourist-with-camera_53637286.jpg

Going on a holiday is already something to be excited about, however you might be interested to know that there’s a few ways you can make your trip away even more enjoyable. With a couple of the helpful points that you can find below, you could afford yourself and the people you’re travelling with an even better vacation than you thought. Read on to find out what these are and how you can make the most of them:

Get your essentials from discount stores

Before you set off you’ll probably need to buy certain items such as clothing or sun cream (depending on the climate). As these are essentials you need to get them, but don’t spend loads at supermarkets and major label shops; instead head to discount stores and save more for your spending money.

Travel light

To build on the above point, when you’ve bought the basics don’t then take loads of additional items with you. Save money on travelling light (especially if you’re flying) and take the bare minimum. This is also good as you then have room in your luggage to bring things back with you.

Write down a few phrases

It’s worth reading up on a few phrases to use in the native tongue to help you get by. Even if it’s simply things like numbers and greetings these can be very helpful when you’re trying to communicate with the locals.

Avoid ‘Tourist traps’

Don’t get suckered into the overpriced and often underwhelming tourist spots, be more adventurous and look for the local points of interest. A quick look online on sites like TripAdvisor will show you the testimony of other travellers which often reveal hidden gems and attractions for you to visit.

Power through the time zones

Being jetlagged isn’t fun, but you shouldn’t let it ruin your trip. If you’re just starting your holiday you shouldn’t go to sleep straightaway, power through and try to adapt to the local time as best you can. You’ll acclimatise much quicker this way.

Be on the ball

The final piece of advice is quite simply act now to sort out important aspects you know could cause you delays. If for instance you have a family member who is unwell or disabled, or you need to get vaccinations or renew your passport – be sure to check what you need to get or have in place now.

So, take on board these useful tips and help make your holiday even more incredible and unforgettable.

 

Tenerife in March

Tenerife-tourist-figures-hit-a-high-in-February

The best way to escape the cold weather of winter months is to travel somewhere it is warm and sunny throughout the year. Such a destination is Tenerife. So why is this destination so great to visit in March? One reason would be that here, the temperatures in March are around 21°C (70°F) and sunny. So it is much better than in the cold and windy Britain this time of the year. No wonder so many Britons prefer a short escapade in this corner of the world. The island is incredibly beautiful, and it is suitable both for travelling in a couple or with your family.

There are many reasons to visit Tenerife. You will find gorgeous beaches, where you can sunbathe or go snorkelling. Also, you can visit the Parque Nacional Las Canadas del Teide, which is a major attraction in the area, since it houses the third largest volcano in the world. So the views you will have in the area will be unforgettable. The massive volcano is surrounded by lush green forests, something you get to see very rarely during life. As another interesting activity, you can take the boat out on the sea and go for dolphin and whale watching. These marine mammals prefer the warm waters of Tenerife, so the chance to see on in their natural habitat is significantly higher.

Don’t forget to visit the colorful capital, La Laguna. It’s been there since 1946, and it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage, due to its old appearance, very well-preserved even in present days. In spite of what you may think, La Laguna is not packed with tourists, being actually a great place to find some peace and relaxation. Only students and locals can be found here, so the place has a more laid back air than the rest of the touristic areas of the island. Plus, you will get a bite of the local culture and the chance to spend a lovely time in a charming city. So, are you ready to trade the rain of Britain for some sun in Tenerife? Sunshine.co.uk offer some of the best holiday deals. March should be the period of visiting the island since the number of tourists is much lower during this time of the year. You’ll be able to enjoy the beauty of Tenerife in peace.
