Adventure seeker – I get bored easily
By adventure we mean lost of activities, nature inspired options and sporty. These destinations are usually off the beaten track a little. Our top recommendations for you are:
Dominica – The Caribbean
Swim with sperm whales, snorkel in bubbling waters, go canyoning though ravines, see incredible waterfalls and hike to boiling lake – yes it is actually boiling, it’s a volcanic island. This Caribbean island is out of this world – read more about Dominica’s attractions.
Grenada – The Caribbean
Grenada is one of the Caribbean’s hidden gems; expect often empty yet incredibly stunning beaches, lush green rainforest to hike in (you can see monkeys and lots of bird life) and swim in captivating waterfalls – the island is very natural. To get your adrenaline going try river tubing! Discover more about Grenada holidays.
Las Vegas, USA
Its not all about partying and gambling! There’s so many stunning natural wonders, canyons, national parks and thrill seeker activities to be had! Raft down the Colorado River to Emerald Cave, see the Grand Canyon on a helicopter, watch a magic show by legend David Copperfield or hike to see the electric blue waterfall, Havassu falls. Vegas is epic – see what else you are missing in Las Vegas.

If you are low on cash, don’t care so much for the sights and would prefer to soak up the sun with an all-inclusive cocktail and a good book then these destinations are for you:
Turkey is cheap. Cheap hotels, cheap flights, cheap food and cheap attractions. There’s two sides of Turkey; the tourist destinations like Bodrum, Antalya and Marmaris where everything is in £’s, there are endless all-inclusive hotels and day excursions can cost as low as £6 for a whole day. Then there’s the real Turkey which is astonishing! See cascading calcium pools high up on a hill that turn pink at sunset, with inspiring ruins covering the area or visit Cappadocia; it’s like The Flintstones town but in real life! Ancient volcanic lava cones cover the area and they have been turned into houses – there’s even a lava cone castle.
Great incredible value hotels that often have much better standards than Europe – and it’s always hot! You can stay in a great all-inclusive hotel and soak up the sun. There are many free attractions including The Grand Mosque, the beach, a fort that looks like a castle and museums.
