It is always a treat to plan a holiday and just leave all the worries behind once at the destination. However, if you end up choosing the wrong destination for yourself, the opposite might hold true. Therefore, it is always a good idea to plan your holiday way ahead of time. Apart from that, you should also search for places worth visiting in the season that you are going to travel.

Additionally, researching the best Internet deals like the Frontier packages in the States will be a bonus to stay connected with friends and family. To help you plan, here's a list of some summer vacation destinations for you.

best places to visit in summer in the world

1. Antigua & Barbuda


This is more like a weekend getaway sort of place. So, if you reside in the States and wish to go to a place that is calm and serene, consider these islands. The best time of the year is the end of April if you wish to visit these twin islands. Because the Antigua Sailing Week is a treat for the visitors at that time. The event brings a new kiteboarding competition to the islands. Which is a fun activity in itself?

However, even if you visit it later than that, you won’t be disappointed. If you are someone who is in search of something unique, then you should head to Antigua's Valley Church Bay. The canvas beds and fire pits will add to the already amazing experience.

2. Crete, Greece


Whenever someone mentions a summer vacation, there are some countries that come to one's mind almost immediately. Greece is one of them. Although Santorini and Mykonos are the more prominent places that people know in Greece, you should visit Crete. This place is ideal for all those people who want to skip the crowd and relish a calm vacation.

Crete offers a calm countryside along with the medieval ruins and fishing villages. The place also offers affordable hotels and Airbnb rentals. Thus, making it a perfect vacation spot.

3. Cuba


For some time, the U.S residents could not visit the country. The restrictions meant that the people from the States remained deprived of the beauty that this place has to offer. However, since 2015 people are visiting this country after the reopening of tourism there. However, people still have to apply for a people-to-people cultural exchange visa to visit this place.

But this does not stop the Americans from visiting this picturesque place. One of the easiest ways to visit Cuba is through a cruise. You can opt for Regent Seven Seas Cruises or Silversea for that purpose.

Cuba is magic and it is passion. Walking through the streets of Havana causes in the stomach those butterflies of your own when you are newly in love. When you walk through Old Havana, through Vedado or the Malecón, you cannot do anything but enjoy the surroundings and a wonderful town as you travel Cuba.

Some will say that it is to go back to the past, for its colonial buildings and its vintage cars, but in reality it is to move to a world of tenacity and character. A character that is printed on each of the things we can see here. There is passion in cigars, in rum, mojitos, daiquiris and food of Cuba.

There is talent in salsa and jazz, and there is a bit of paradise in each of the Keys and, of course, in Varadero. Among things to do in Cuba, laze around white sands, transparent water and a whole hotel floor designed for the enjoyment of tourists. In Cuba there is also history, such as the monument to Che in Santa Clara, the cities of Camagüey, Pinar del Río and Santiago de Cuba. All this and much more in a single island while you visit to Cuba and travel to Havana.

Trinidad is the best preserved colonial city in Cuba. In addition, it has the famous Ancon beach of just 15 minutes away considered one of the best beaches in Cuba. Near Trinidad there is a huge natural reserve called Topes de Collantes. You will be able to hike along its paths among incredible waterfalls. From Trinidad you can hire excursions in Cubatur or even with the locals of Trinidad to go to the park on horseback or even in 4 × 4 vehicles to see the best corners of the park and the best waterfalls.

One hour away from Trinidad you can find hundreds of waterfalls to explore. The Caburni waterfall of 75 meters of fall is the most famous and the typical to do in an excursion from Trinidad. But the most impressive is the El Nicho waterfall but its access is very complicated and tortuous, we recommend you use a 4x4 vehicle to reach the waterfall.

And the most photogenic and the one you usually see in photographs when you look for the waterfalls of Trinidad is the Vegas Grande Waterfall since it is easy to capture the entire fall of the waterfall.

4. Nova Scotia


Nova Scotia is a rather inaccessible province in Canada but a beautiful one too. There is good news for people who are always looking for new places to visit. There are a couple of new direct flights to this province that are making it easy for travelers to access this province.

People often overlook this mesmerizing province for provinces like Quebec and British Columbia. However, what many do not realize is that it is a charming and worth exploring place. Especially Cape Breton Island. It requires a bit of work to reach there but you will be surprised beyond words when you get to see the beauty that the place is.

Apart from that, the Halifax Jazz Festival is a popular event that the island hosts. The event takes place in July and is a 3-4 day long gig.

5. Grand Canyon


Adventure lovers would know the amazing place that Grand Canyon is. From the dangerous mountains to the challenging treks, this place is an adventure lover's paradise. One thing that you should keep in mind before visiting this place is that the temperatures drop drastically once the sun sets. Therefore, do not forget to pack layers of clothes that you can wear to protect yourself from the cold.

If you plan to visit the place somewhere in June this year, then you might be lucky enough to witness the Grand Canyon's 100th Anniversary.

6. Tasmania


This is yet another suggestion for people who look for places that are quiet and calm. Some people do not like crowded places. Tasmania is a perfect option for these people. It is a scenic island south of Melbourne. The best part is that it won’t be that hot in this island at this time of the year. So, if you want to escape the heat, then this is the best option for you.

One of the best ways to experience this place is planning a road trip. Because you would not want to miss out on the scenic beauty that this place offers.

7. French Polynesia


If you are a fan of really hot weather, then French Polynesia in Tahiti is the place to be at. It wasn't an affordable option to visit this please before. But now that a couple of airlines offer their services to take you to this island, it has become an affordable option.

8. Fiji


Within the great Pacific Ocean is a conglomerate of twenty volcanic atolls belonging to the Fiji, called the Mamanuca Islands. All of them are of a unique beauty, although the most popular are Malolo Lalai and Malolo. Mamanuca Islands can only be accessed by small planes or by taking a boat from the port of nearby Denarau. This area is very touristy, so it has all kinds of commercial and lodging services such as restaurants and hotels.

From this same geographical point one can approach the enchanting Yasawa Islands. When one imagines idyllic beaches of white sand with turquoise and transparent waters, an ideal temperature allows to practice diving all year round among coral reefs.

As revealing curiosity in relation to the beauty of this enclave, it is noteworthy that the film Cast Away, starring Tom Hanks, was filmed in this place. Go by barge to one of the atolls that are still uninhabited. Monuriki is one of those islands that are deserted.

8. Guatemala


Home to the two highest volcanoes in Guatemala: Tajumulco (4,220 m) and Tacaná (4,093 m) and border with Mexico, San Marcos has valuable ecotourism destinations. San Marcos also offers the beaches of the Suchiate and Naranjo rivers, the Ixiama, Shula, Mopa and Cabuz rivers, with places authorized for hunting and fishing.

You can visit the waterfalls and caves of La Castalia. In the municipality of Río Blanco are Los Tres Chorros and the Tibia Water Falls. In Tacaná there is La Cueva del Negro, the Piedra Movediza and the volcano that bears the same name.

A trip to Guatemala must include a stay of several days in Atitlán Lake. Located 4 hours by bus from the capital, Guatemala City, Lake Atitlan, surrounded by volcanoes, is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. In the morning, the immense volcanoes are reflected in its blue waters. Its reputation as the most beautiful lake in the world is well deserved.

9. Cayman Islands


Unless it is a stopover during a cruise in the Caribbean, the British archipelago of the Cayman Islands is a holiday destination recommended only to lovers of relaxation and scuba diving. Turquoise blue waters, protected marine parks and millionaire villas are three ingredients for these three islands located less than 300 km from Jamaica.

Grand Cayman, the main port of arrival of cruise ships, offer a greater variety of hotels. Cayman Brac is, above all, a destination for lovers of scuba diving, although its practically deserted beaches also lend themselves to a stay of several days. Little Cayman, meanwhile, is a paradise, both in terms of native wildlife species and the few tourists who are captivated by its charms.

It is strictly forbidden to go topless on the beaches of the archipelago. The laws that regulate the protection of the seabed are very strict. For example, collecting coral or sponges is prohibited. The restaurants of George Town and Seven Miles Beach, serve both typically American Tex-Mex specialties, lavishly watered with beer. Although the Caribbean may lend itself more to tasting fresh fish, crustaceans and tropical fruits.

10. Bahamas


The Commonwealth of The Bahamas is an independent state formed by about 700 islands located in the Atlantic Ocean, north of Cuba, northwest of the Turks and Caicos Islands and east of the Florida peninsula. The country enjoys a climate between tropical and subtropical, and like all the Caribbean, suffers the scourge of hurricanes from late summer until the end of autumn.

Its capital, Nassau, has a large shopping center where you can breathe its colonial heritage mixed with the island's own folklore. In the peripheral islands, handicrafts include basketry made of palm leaves that end up being the most popular tourist elements.

This destination combines the most precious ingredients for a relaxing holiday. While vacationing in the Bahamas you can enjoy the tranquility of the beaches and the deserted keys, an omnipresent sun, an underwater world to discover, and the fun of aquatic and terrestrial sports. You can also savor a good gastronomy based on seafood with a glass of rum and the kindness of its inhabitants.

The list does not exhaust here. However, if you think that you do not have enough funds to travel to a new country or an island, make good use of your Frontier Internet plans. Binge watch all the shows that you can. Enjoy!
