Your perfect vacation should be an adventure you will never forget. Some people take vacations and don’t take the time to fully consider what they want out of a destination and end up disappointed. They miss out on great adventures.
This doesn’t have to be the case. Taking the time to ask yourself the right questions will help you find the right adventure destination for your next vacation.
We’ve provided the details you need to consider to get the most out of your next vacation experience. Whether you are traveling with friends, family, or by yourself, read on to find out how to choose the right destination.
Decide What You Want
Part of making an adventure great is satisfying your idea of what adventure is. Whether you want to scuba dive on a beautiful reef, visit ancient ruins, or just walk along the beautiful countryside, you have to decide before you can work toward making your custom travel plans.
You also need to consider who you’re bringing with you. If you plan family vacations, your idea of an adventure destination could be something geared toward children or families. For example, our friends at Metro Journeys offer Ecuador Adventures trips for family vacations.
On the other hand, if you are traveling with an adventure-seeking friend, you might be looking for more active vacations.
Whatever your travel situation, decide what you want to experience and make it happen.
Consider Your Timeframe
Now that you’ve decided what you want in an adventure, you need to consider how much time you have to dedicate to your adventure.
While you can have a great adventure whether you have an afternoon or an entire year, choosing an adventure destination depends on your timeframe.
Are you solo-traveling and have a wide-open schedule? Are you taking an end-of-summer family trip before your kids return to school? Whatever the case, your timeframe will help determine what you can accomplish.
What’s Your Style?
As we discussed earlier, the definition of an adventure depends on the individual seeking the adventure. You may prefer the backpacker’s lifestyle and are looking for budget-friendly hostels. Alternatively, you might want to stay in a luxury hotel near the city center.
Part of your travel style involves your desired climate. Someone looking for a snowy adventure might not find Hawaii to be their perfect adventure destination.
Finally, decide how flexible you are willing to be in regard to your travel style. Is it more important for you to stay at a luxury hotel or stay by the beach? Your flexibility will either help to broaden or narrow your destination choices.
Build a Budget
The biggest limiting factor in your travel plans will likely be your budget. Decide how much you can afford to save before you go as well as how much you can spend once you arrive. Remember to be realistic with your budget so you can enjoy your adventure vacation without breaking the bank.
Calculate the cost of your desired activities and create a spreadsheet. Then add in the amount you need to save. Finally, divide this amount by the number of days, months, or weeks until departure to determine the amount you need to save at each milestone.
Choose Your Adventure Destination
Now that you’ve determined what you want from your adventure, how much time you have available, and how you want to travel, you can put these details together to choose your adventure destination.
