Capri, Italy

Can you think of something better than soaking the sun in a magical Island of Italy? Capri, Italy, is all about sunny days, tanned bodies and Mediterranean food. After a day enjoying the crystal-clear waters of ¨Marina Grande¨ or ¨Marina Piccola¨ and soaking up the sun, you will want to try Il Riccio or Piazza Umberto, two famous restaurants with the most famous Italian dishes. And of course, there´s nothing better to beat the heat than trying a Gelato.

You can take a day cruise or boat ride to the Blue Grotto, an underwater cave with the most beautiful blue waters you will every witness. Sunlight passes through the cavity and creates a reflection that illuminates the interior of the cave and gives such remarkable blue color to the water.

Cairo, Egypt

You don´t necessarily need to soak up the sun in front of the beach, for example, you could also do it in front of the oldest of the seven wonders of the Ancient World: The Great Pyramids of Giza.

Cairo, Egypt, is the perfect mix of ancient and modern. This fantastic city holds buildings from every era of its history, so the view is quite unique.

Taking a tour through the beautiful Cairo will sure leave you a tan, especially if you start it from the Giza pyramid complex. When preparing your bucket list of the places to visit in this interesting City, make sure you add Cairo Citadel, a medieval Islamic-era fortification offering visitors splendid views of the metropolis; and Khan el-Khalil, a famous bazaar with jewelry, street food, Arabic coffeehouses and much more to explore.

Costa Rica

You have probably heard “Pura Vida en Costa Rica”, a mantra adopted by Costa Ricans over 50 years ago that truly represents what Costa is all about. Eco-tourism is massive here, there are over 60 beaches all over the country that are perfect for soaking up the sun, surfing and even snorkeling.

At Costa Rica, the opportunities to soak up the sun are endless. You can surf, jungle trek, or simply relax on the beaches.

Clearwater, Florida
