Summer is around the corner and when summer comes around after a long, cold winter, many of us start fantasizing about tropical getaways and time in the sun. However, if we don’t take the proper time to actually put thought and planning into our summer vacations, we can end up spending a ton of money on a trip we don’t even have time to enjoy. That’s where Royal Holiday comes in. Planning a vacation shouldn’t be stressful, and it shouldn’t take up a lot of time. From the sunny beaches of San Diego to the exotic shores of Mexico’s southern coast, Royal Holiday offers first-class vacation properties to individuals, families, and couples just looking to get away for a few weeks. When you plan with Royal Holiday, you don’t have to stress about all the aggravating details. All that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy your time off. So what are you waiting for? If you’re dreaming about a summer trip, here’s what you need to do to make the best of your Royal Holiday vacation sooner rather than later.
Find Your Location
You might know where you want to go on your vacation, but hold off from buying those tickets before you know the whole story. When it comes to booking the perfect summer getaway, you’ll want to do a bit of research about the climate, peak travel times, and events taking place in your destination of choice. For instance, you might want to head out to Italy during late August, but you’re going to have a ton of competition for sightseeing and getting around town. And you might want to head out to Royal Holiday’s Park Royal Miami Beach hotel in June, only to run into a ton of tourists and some less-than-pleasant weather during early summer. If you’ve got your heart set on a certain location, such as the Caribe Club Princess in Punta Cana or the CLC Marina Dorada in Costa del Sol, Spain, make sure you know enough about weather and tourist patterns to avoid ending up in an unpleasant, easily avoided situation. Remember: You only get one summer vacation per year! Put in the work beforehand to avoid getting hit with long lines, bad weather, and traffic.
Find Your Dates
After you’ve picked your destination, you’ll need to figure out the best time to set sail. While June can be perfect in terms of weather, it can also lead to overcrowded restaurants and tourist attractions. Many travelers opt for August and even early September to take vacation time off in order to beat the rush. When you travel will have a lot to do with your work schedule and flexibility. However, make sure you’re choosing a time slot that will give you plenty of time to plan things out and relax. You don’t want to cram everything into a few days, and you don’t want to spend your whole vacation sitting on a bus or a train. If you’re traveling with family, it’s even more important to figure out the timing. If you really want to spend one week in one place and one week somewhere else, it’s fully doable. However, to get the most out of your vacation, you might want to consider staying in one place for the whole time while factoring in a few longer day trips.
Plan Your Itinerary
What’s important to you and your family? Are you an artsy bunch? Do you love museums and small galleries? Do you like hands-on activities like hiking, biking, and rock climbing? With literally hundreds of destinations abound you can find the trip you so desire. Even if you are you a totally mixed bunch with completely opposing interests? No matter what or who you’re planning for, you’ll want to create an itinerary that has tons of options for everyone. That doesn’t mean you have to break your back trying to please everyone all the time. It simply means that everyone should have options during your trip. If someone really wants to see a certain site or go to a certain beach, make that a priority for a day. If someone else is dying to go surfing, try to make it happen. But don’t stress if you can’t serve everyone’s needs all the time. Keep things flexible enough that you can make last-minute changes if needed without feeling stressed or guilty. If you’re working with a tighter budget, some of these decisions will be made for you. Remember that you can’t be in two places at once, and that’s totally fine. As long as you’re creating enough space for everyone to do a bit of what they want, you’ll be able to create a totally harmonious, invigorating trip for the whole family.
