Going to an island vacation is a lot like going on a treasure hunt. With hidden gems and uncharted locations, an island can really rejuvenate your spirit and rekindle your inner explorer. So here are some tips to help you get the most out of your island getaway.
First, walk and get outside. You don’t need a plan or a map, just walk the sandy beaches and the bustling town, and look around you. Let curiosity be your guide and carry you through the day, and if you see a cove or a restaurant that looks interesting, then go for it. Live like a local (even if you are staying in a troncones hotel), and take the time to truly set yourself free from any other influence and just walk.
Next, take advantage of the exotic mystery and activities. Where else can you swim with a coral reef, or eat freshly caught fish, or hike up a mountain trail? The island is going to offer you many activities, and feel free to try them all. A vacation like this is a once in a lifetime experience, so don’t let it slip away.
Finally, talk to the people around you. We all tend to live in our own bubbles, and an island is a self-contained bubble. Talk to the people, try to understand the island culture, and just breathe in a new life for the extent of your trip. You might have gone to an island to find yourself, get a new experience, have a family vacation with friends and family, or just because you needed some time alone.
Take whatever that goal is and fully commit to it during your time on the island, and you’ll walk away from the trip a changed person.
