Here are a few hidden tropical gems to provide you an oasis to rejuvenate in a hideaway tucked away from the tourist crowds.
A glimpse of Off the Beaten Path Adventures:
Hana, Hawaii Isolated from the rest of crowded Maui Bay, Hana is a great location to get the best of Hawaii's unspoiled beauty. For a nature-lovin' stay in peace and paradise, Hana is a gorgeous, laid-back Hawaiian destination, where you can rest cozy with the water nearby.
Tulum, Mexico With its always authentic and laid-back vibe, Tulum is the perfect escape to unplug near ancient ruins and white, sandy beaches. The beautiful cabanas at Secret Garden Tulum are nestled around a gorgeous courtyard tucked away in a quiet street, yet still close to town for you to munch on tasty, authentic tacos
Las Galera, Dominican Republic Compared to its mega-resort neighbor Punta Cana, Samana boasts a beauty on a sleepy peninsula that's almost an entire island in itself. Chalet Tropical Village is a charming property with villas surrounded by gorgeous gardens and a beautiful beach just steps away.
Curacao Aruba's lesser known and less-crowded cousin offers the same perks: warm weather all year round and loads of Caribbean flair. The boutique apartments at Scuba Lodge have fully equipped kitchens and balconies for views and lounging. And true to its namesake, you're in a prime location for any water activity you can imagine.
Limon, Costa Rica Limon is one of the more pristine areas of Costa Rica and less traveled at that, making way for untouched rainforest and unmatched beauty. El Encanto is a charming beach hotel made up of tastefully decorated bungalows just footsteps from the sand.
