When you only have a few days and want a vacation that’s bite-sized but more than memorable… 

1 | Costa Rica

Costa Rica

Teeming with wildlife and gifted with astonishing panoramas, Costa Rica is made for adventure, though travelers seeking R&R will love it too. Its seven provinces include towering volcanos and lush jungles plus Instagram-worthy beaches, rivers, and streams, making this destination perfect year-round. 

  • Raft Costa Rica’s whitewater or for a mellower commune with nature, paddle a kayak or canoe 
  • Explore the landscape from above via zipline, cable car or walkways that wind through the canopy
  • Experience world-class golf (we love the Four Seasons Resort for this)
  • Witness monkeys, sloths, and other wonderful creatures while hiking with a private guide

Hotels we love: Four Seasons Resort and Andaz Resort at Peninsula Papagayo, El Silencio Lodge & Spa

2 | Mayakoba

An exclusive enclave located along the pristine beachfront of the Riviera Maya, Mayakoba is everything you could want for a rejuvenating, sun-filled holiday. Bask in the spectacular scenery of this luxurious hideaway. 

  • Relax with a great read on a beach of sugary sand 
  • Practice your swing at the PGA Tour-rated El Camaleon Golf Course 
  • Snorkel the second-largest coral reef in the world 
  • Spend a morning diving amongst tropical fish, stingrays, and whale sharks 

Hotels we love: Rosewood, Banyan Tree, Andaz 

3 | Aspen

Small Bites Winter

A well-known getaway for the world’s elite, Aspen’s reputation for exceptional skiing and outdoor activities is only surpassed by its legendary après ski scene. Nestled in the snow-topped peaks of the Elk Mountains, Aspen is surrounded by extraordinary beauty no matter the season.

  • Dine on delectable French American cuisine at Cache Cache or savor yummy fondue at Cloud Nine, a ski-in ski-out bistro atop the lift by the same name
  • Enjoy incredible shopping at Aspen’s premier boutiques and art galleries
  • Tackle the slopes at the Highlands, Snowmass or Buttermilk resorts
  • Pamper yourself at Heaven on Earth one of the city’s most stylish day spas

4 | Puerto Rico

A sun-kissed paradise, Puerto Rico is known for its rich history, majestic mountains, gorgeous beaches, and welcoming locals plus the largest shopping center in the Caribbean. Partake of this island’s vibrant ethos, and you may never want to leave.

  • Spend the day admiring works of 17th Century art at the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico
  • Dance your cares away at La Placita, a Farmer’s market by day a hopping outdoor nightclub by night

Hotels we love: Dorado Beach – A Ritz Carlton Reserve, St. Regis Bahia Beach, Serafina Beach Hotel

5 | Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas is home to stunning shores, copious watersports, and a spirited nightlife. The hard part: figuring out what to do first. How about jet skiing or parasailing? Or maybe horseback riding? There’s very little you can’t do in this exhilarating hotspot.

  • Charter a boat for some of the best deep-sea fishing in the world
  • Play 18 holes on courses “Golf Digest” describes as “surreal mountains-meet-desert-meets tropics”
  • Savor fresh ceviche, fish tacos, or shellfish at one of the city’s many mouthwatering restaurants
  • Be eternally entertained by breaching humpbacks, playful dolphins or curious sea lions during a thrilling private zodiac expedition
