Top 5 Vacations for 2021

Many are predicting 2021 to be the year of travel. Why? Because travelers will be making up for missed travel in 2020 and they’ll need to use their travel vouchers (which may expire soon). Others are planning bucket list trips as this pandemic has shown us we can’t take our health, travel privileges or anything else for granted.

Data shows people are definitely looking to plan trips for 2021… search engines are seeing a jump of almost 400% in searches for international travel for the first half of next year.

However, planning trips for 2021 gets tricky… if you plan too soon and the pandemic is not under control by next year you may have to postpone a trip again. And if you wait too long to plan you may be paying higher prices as many flights and hotels will be sold out.

So for the time being let’s start dreaming and thinking about where to travel next year. Below I’m sharing with you the Top 5 Vacations for 2021. These destinations offer quite a bit of privacy and the opportunity to explore regions that are not overly crowded.

Enjoy Nature and Wildlife

There are few places in the world that can offer the incredible diversity offered by Costa Rica. Enjoy unique experiences… from the spectacular wildlife, the rainforests, volcanoes, and hot springs, to the adventure activities including rafting, zip-lining, hiking, and horseback riding.

You can enjoy all this while staying in an eco-friendly lodge in the rainforest where your closest neighbors will be howler monkeys and beautiful toucans.


Experience Morocco

Morocco is an unbeatable destination where the landscapes are breathtaking… the sea, mountains, and the most majestic golden sand dunes in the Sahara. Beautiful ancient cities and sweeping deserts make for the vast contrast you’ll experience while visiting this stunning country.

I love this option for 2021 because all our Morocco tours include a private guide/driver for the duration of the trip. Your guide will escort you from the airport and through all the cities you’ll be visiting, he’ll provide you with the best sightseeing opportunities and take you to places only known to locals. The entire experience is highly personalized and tailored to you.

Explore the Authentic Italian Countryside

The region of Umbria is the most authentic Italian countryside. Explore medieval hilltop towns and ancient walled cities, learn about the art of olive oils, salumi, and black truffles. Plus, there are so many adventure activities in Umbria. Monti Sibillini National Park offers zip lining, horseback riding, biking, whitewater rafting, and paragliding.

Visiting this Italian region is like stepping back into another century. The mountains, the sunsets, and the overall vibe is incredibly special. Plus it’s an area where you can stay away from the crowds while experiencing it’s lush, earthy, and warm environment


Rent a Private Villa in the Caribbean

Renting a villa will provide you with privacy, plenty of room for family gatherings, a private pool, breathtaking views, and even your own chef. Villa rentals can include the services of a butler, chef and housekeeper. So you can enjoy these magnificent homes and be catered to throughout your entire vacation.

With a Caribbean Villa, the ocean is your backyard and you’ll have plenty of privacy away from the crowds.

Visit Unexplored European Islands

The Azores... These nine islands off the coast of Portugal are still a hidden gem. Each island has its own landscape and magic.

Here’s what you can experience in the Azores… Lovely towns with mosaic cobblestone streets, not far from these charming towns you can visit hot springs and float in thermal waters, hike to waterfalls, and marvel at beautiful gardens throughout the islands. Enjoy a myriad of activities such as mountain biking, canyoning, surfing, canoeing, and infinite coastal hikes.
