5 Best Tropical Island Vacations to Relax this Summer

Enjoy sun, sand and sea before summer ends. Looking to get away from it all? Nothing beats a sun-drenched getaway to a seaside resort, from The Bahamas to Cancun. Imagine swimming in stunning blue waters and sipping your favorite frozen beverage on the beach. Pack your bags and book a relaxing holiday – here are five spectacular tropical destinations to explore this summer.

The Bahamas
This tropical paradise spans across more than 700 islands across the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll never be more than a few steps from the beach wherever you stay. Learn to scuba dive during a three-hour session with a professional instructor or snorkel at Stuart’s Cove to see a magnificent coral reef and sunken shipwreck. If you’re brave enough, you can even embark on a shark adventure.

Dominican Republic – Puerto Plata
Kick back in the DR. Spend your days frolicking on the beach, golfing or strolling through the historic old town of Puerto Plata. Just get plenty of rest because this beachy nirvana offers many (many!) hours of excitement, from day to night. Visit the largest manmade dolphin habitat in the world, and then catch a dinner show with live dancing and colorful costumes.

Cancun
Nestled on the spectacular Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, Cancun is a vacation wonderland that attracts people from all over the world. In between bites of spicy south-of-the-border fare and sips of refreshing margaritas, you can pick from a variety of unforgettable experiences. Swim with the dolphins during an amazing animal encounter or explore the mystical pyramid ruins of Chichen Itza, a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Maui
Featuring dramatic volcanoes and rugged beaches, Maui is a stunning destination for an island getaway. Race down a zipline above lush tropical gardens, fly over volcanic craters on a helicopter tour or set sail for a romantic sunset cruise with a champagne toast. Of course, you can’t leave Hawaii without enjoying a famous luau with an all-you-can eat Polynesian buffet and live hula dancing.

Kauai
This natural paradise is all about the great outdoors. The magical landscape of Kauai is a highlight of Hawaii. Hike through lush rainforests and along awe-inspiring coastal cliffs. Paddle down the Wailua River or explore the 4,000-foot-deep Waimea Canyon. The Kauai Movie Adventure takes you on a Hollywood odyssey to famous film locations across the island.
