There’s a reason people go to the tropics for vacation. The weather is great, there are beaches, it’s a unique ecosystem, and there are plenty of things for the whole family to enjoy. Here are 10 tropical adventures you should try in 2020.
10 Tropical Adventures You Should Consider in 2020
1. Zip Lining
Zip lining involves attaching to a harness that is attached to a sturdy wire high up in the sky. While attached, you quickly slide down the wire. You receive a burst of adrenaline and an incomparable view of the scenery.
2. Scuba Diving/Snorkeling
Tropical locations generally have clear blue open oceans with new, beautiful fish to examine. You won’t be able to see everything from the shore. You need to get some equipment and take a look in the water yourself. Scuba diving and snorkeling give you the opportunity to breathe underwater, allowing you to explore the oceans personally and see things you’ve never seen before.
Sometimes, you just want to explore the area. Many places are simply gorgeous, and you need to walk around to see the hidden gems you might miss if you don’t wander around. Get your hiking boots on and research the best hiking locations in the area. Some hikes are even overnight, adding something special to the experience.
4. Eat Local Food
Adventures don’t always have to be physical. Go outside of your comfort zone by eating some of the local cuisine you normally wouldn’t try. To be really adventurous, go outside of the resort and eat where the locals eat to get the full experience.
There are special fish in the tropics you won’t be able to catch at home. For that reason, fishermen will want to go fishing in a tropical location for a new adventure. Always check the local laws to ensure you don’t hurt the local wildlife or catch prohibited fish unknowingly.
6. Go Dancing
Go enjoy the nightlife while you’re in a tropical location. It’s a completely different environment, and you have an excuse to put on your dancing shoes and get a little crazy.
7. Swim with Sharks
You can swim with a variety of animals you never thought you’d interact with, such as sharks, dolphins, and sting rays. You are usually not in any danger, but it’s still extremely exhilarating. Plus, it’s a great opportunity for a photo op. If you are really adventurous, you may even be able to swim with dangerous animals.
8. Give Back to the Community
Get adventurous by getting involved. Look for charity opportunities in your location and spend a couple of hours giving back to the place you were lucky enough to enjoy. You will be doing a good deed, and you will feel good about yourself.
9. Explore Your Resort
Most exotic resorts have a variety of activities for you to enjoy. However, many times, a vacation is too busy for the guests to enjoy everything there is to offer at luxury villas in the Bahamas and other tropical locations. You may find a Jacuzzi, a pool, or a spa. There may be a number of other items, too. Plan some time to enjoy your villa and utilize the fun they have to offer. You already paid for it, after all!
There can be some wild waters in the tropics. Some are perfect for white water rafting. This involved getting in a raft and letting wild waters take you on an adventure. Only go in designated areas. You don’t want to end up hurting yourself by going in a location with a current that is too strong or too swallow of water.
Your exotic vacation is as exciting as you make it. Make it the best you can with these exciting adventures!
