Your photo album will seem like a National Geographic. See one of the most rare, most awe-inspiring sights in nature, the annual crawl of the newly hatched baby turtles into the sea. Tortuguero is a hotbed for endangered turtles coming to lay eggs, including green turtles, leatherbacks, hawksbills, and loggerhead turtles. Watch an experience like that during your vacation, and there is no chance of forgetting it.

The people of Mui Ne have got a lot of sand dunes, and it seems like they’ve got it quite figured out how to deal with it. Rent some sleds for a few bucks each, and make an afternoon of it. Jeep tours are great for getting you through the desert, and there are plenty of fun terrain moments to get some adrenaline pumping. Overall, such a unique and interesting trek.

The great thing about traveling abroad is the opportunity to teach your family about culture and diversity, as well as learn a little bit yourself. The Inti Raymi Festival, the annual celebration of the sun near Cuzco, is a great opportunity to take a step into the past, and have a load of fun seeing beautiful cultural wear and elegant dances.

7. Sailing in the Whitsunday Islands, Australia

Don’t get me wrong, sailing is awesome. But it doesn’t get any better than looking down to see the Great Barrier Reef. Whitsunday is a bit of a hidden gem, it is not as popular as some sailing locations nearby, but from all my attempts, I can’t see why. The spot is also built for snorkeling, there is plenty to see down there.
