For the Party - Ibiza
For a small island off the coast of Spain, Ibiza makes a lot of noise. Maybe it’s because it’s one of the world’s top party destinations. In fact, The Secret DJ recently launched a weekly daytime party (every Wednesday through October 9) to round out the season.
And if partying isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty to do, between mingling with A-list celebrities and experiencing the extraordinary yachting culture. Ibiza is also a well-known wellness destination. When you’re not dancing it up on the White Isle, you can relax at one of their many hotel spas, take a trip to a decadent, Micheline-starred eatery, or catch some waves on one of the many golden-sand beaches.
For Relaxation - Maldives
If you're interested in escaping the world for a while, there are few better places to do it than the Maldives. Whether you want to enjoy a romantic getaway or get in touch with your spiritual side, this small island chain located in the Indian Ocean has precisely what you're looking for.
Get to know your significant other a little better in one of the airy cabins that sit atop the blue water. Or get to know your self a bit better at one of the resort spas scattered across the beautiful islands.
For exceptional luxury, take a speedboat to Como Cocoa Island -- one of the most exclusive resorts in the area. Yoga, fine dining, and untouched nature await.
For Adventure - Costa Rica
For those who get enough relaxation at home, it's time to get out and explore the rainforests of Costa Rica. From world-renowned water sports to exotic wildlife found nowhere else on the planet, there's no better place to spend the summer than among the Ticos.
Helicopter over the rainforest canopy, kayak through some of the most stunning rivers in existence and rest your weary head in one of the treehouse resorts. A Costa Rican getaway is the perfect escape from boredom.
