Beach Babe or Daredevil? Perfect Vacation Planning

May 22, 2013

Whether you’re a beach babe or daredevil there are a few ways that you can enjoy a hassle free holiday with some expert planning.

General planning tips
A few planning rules apply to any getaway, no matter if you’re going to the beach or on an adventure holiday. These include the absolute basics of making sure you’ve got your passport and travel tickets. It is also important to ensure that you have your visa situation sorted. Some destinations require several weeks to process visa applications so get this done in plenty of time. You should also look out for the vaccinations you may need, you can be refused entry to some territories if you do not have the correct inoculations and proof thereof.

Another great planning idea is to check out the local entertainment scene before your arrival. This will give you an idea of the type of thing you’ll be doing when you’re not lounging on the beach or jumping off a cliff with nothing but an elasticated rope to break your fall. Check for things like bars, clubs and whatever else you fancy doing in your spare time.

Beach babe planning tips
Whenever you’re going on a beach holiday it pays to take sun tan lotion. Otherwise you could have more of an adventure than you were expecting. Suntan lotion is often cheaper and better quality in the UK so it’s a good idea to stock up on the stuff on home soil. Everyone wants to get accommodation close to the beach – however, this can be expensive. To save money you could try to get somewhere further in town, but look into transport to and from the coast.

Beach Destinations
The small South American country of Uruguay is often overshadowed by bordering Brazil and Argentina. However, during the summer months of December and January, tourists from these famous neighbouring nations flock to enjoy the white sand beaches of Punta del Este on the south coast of Uruguay, considered by many to be the best in South America. Also worth a look are the famous beaches in the South of France. Head over to this article for an idea of what the region can offer.

Daredevil planning tips
In truth, travel insurance is a good idea wherever you’re going on holiday. Even if you’re just relaxing on the beach and don’t plan to do much, it’s still better to be safe than sorry. However, travel insurance becomes absolutely vital if you plan to go on an adventure holiday. Not only will insurance cover you in the event that you are involved in an accident, it may even be a prerequisite for taking part in many adventure activities. Travel insurance doesn’t have to be expensive; here are a few tips on finding the best deal.

Daredevil Destinations
From boarding down the side of a volcano in Nicaragua to taking on the infamous Death Road in Bolivia and experiencing the Peruvian Andes on horseback, Latin America has all sorts of adventures available for very reasonable prices. New Zealand is also a pretty good place for those who fancy themselves as a daredevil, with legendary bungee jumps and zip lining available in the area. Perhaps the ultimate daredevil adventure is the Pamplona bull running festival in Spain – not for the faint-hearted!
