5 Of The Best Destinations For Active People Vacationing

by Royal Holiday

Vacation time for some people means soaking up the sun by the beach, eating and sipping on cocktails all day, relaxing and just slowing down your lifestyle trying to make every minute away from work count. There is nothing wrong with this type of thinking; vacation may be the only time people have to let their bodies and minds rest, and that’s why they try to do just that. However, there are those whose idea of relaxation includes walking, running, canoeing, bungee jumping and surfing. Vacation is just another opportunity to get out there and try new things. Who has time to sit around and not take advantage of all that free time to stay active and try new things?

Here we have a list of some of the greatest destinations to get away, but not to leave your active lifestyle behind!

Surfing – Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

There are many places in Santa Teresa that offer all-inclusive surf packages for beginners and also advanced surfers traveling alone, with their significant other or the entire family. The packages include everything to make your vacation a delight and be able to enjoy surfing lessons all day every day if you wish to do so. The town of Santa Teresa is famous for its quiet atmosphere, its rustic shops and the amazing jungle that surrounds the white sandy beaches. 

Tennis and Golfing Vacations  – Tampa, FL

If you are serious about tennis or golf, the Tampa area is right for you. Let us begin with the fact that there are plenty of tennis courts in all different types of surface for your enjoyment. Packages in this area include classes, daily clinics, access to courts and matching with players of your similar skill. When it comes to golf, there are amazing golf courses and world-class academies designed to train professionals, adults and young golfers.

To finish out the day in style, luxurious European-style Spas are easily available and feature full menus of body treatments, massages, hydro-tub, facials and salon services, as well as outside dining.

Muay Thai Training – Phuket, Thailand

When it comes to active vacation spots and fitness packages, it doesn’t get any more extreme than this. Phuket has the world’s biggest and most recognized Muay Thai, MMA & Fitness training gyms. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner, curious about the sport, a fitness junkie or a world-class fighter; all will find a fit challenge in this amazing place. 

Yoga Getaways – Machu Picchu, Peru

These vacations are particularly special for mixing an offer of exploring the magical city of Machu Picchu and the adventure into the spirit that Yoga provides. Think about starting your adventure with a welcome dinner in Cusco, from there you depart to the Secret Valley and visit the Moray Circles and stand in awe before the majestic mountains, see the local village and hike to the Maras Salt Farms. Spend time hiking and revitalizing your mind spirit connecting with the old culture of gods that were here since before modern man step foot in this mystic land.

Royal Caribbean Fitness Cruises

The fitness center on Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas is the best at sea, no questions asked. The view out of the windows is amazing, the number of machines and equipment is enough and adequately space so the place doesn’t feel crowded no matter what. There is ample enough to accommodate different types of training from state-of-the-art cardio, weight-training and circuit-training machines to sets of free-weights and a full-size boxing ring, complete with speed bags, jump ropes, heavy bags and padded punching mitts. Royal Caribbean is also the only line to offer ice-skating and now roller-skating on its Quantum Class. For those who simply hate gyms, there are even more options available like a surf simulator, a rock climbing wall and a high-tech indoors sports complex.

Most people don’t think about cruise lines when they have fitness in mind for their next vacation, but with features like this, you’d be hard-pressed to find such inclusive locations that cater to families, passive exercisers as well as hard-core athletes who do not want to sacrifice their training simply because they are traveling.
