Acapulco, Mexico
Acapulco has been a vacation hot spot for a number of years. While you are there, be sure to catch the La Quebrada Cliff Divers, the peaceful Pei de la Cuesta, the small bay Puerto Marquez and the beautiful beaches of Isla de la Requeta.


This Caribbean island is located northeast of Venezuela. It has been dubbed "Little England" after all of the English settlements that once inhabited the area. Barbados is divided into five parts - Bridgetown, Central Barbados, Eastern Barbados, Western Barbados and Southern Barbados. Be sure to pack your sunscreen and stay hydrated, Barbados is 13 degrees off the equator so sunburns are easy to get.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

This vacation hot spot is located on the tip of the Baja California peninsula. If you are visiting Cabo San Lucas, expect to find large marine, beautiful bay, great beaches, a casual atmosphere and exciting nightlife. While there, don't miss the El Arco arch, an amazing natural rock formation at Land's End.

Cancun, Mexico

Cancun is a great place to enjoy sun and beautiful beaches. If you are visiting this spot, you can do everything from swimming with the dolphins and scuba diving to snorkeling and fishing. Be careful when you jump in the water, the Caribbean waters can have a strong undertow. Don't forget to take a day trip to Mayan ruins. Cancun is close to a number of great sites that you won't want to miss.

Ibiza, Spain

This city is located in the Balearic Islands. During your visit to Ibiza, be sure to visit the hidden cove Atlantis, the Hippy Market and Bar Anita - a gathering spot for artists and writers since the 1950s.
