You can also look for vacation rentals like condos for staycation or private beachfront Puerto Vallarta villa rental units for a weekend beach getaway. If you want a more adventurous holiday, you may book exciting activities that involve a shark encounter, snorkeling and deep sea diving.
If you are looking for a cultural trip, one of the most attractive options is Paris. With its incredible museums including the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay, you can discover the art of many different periods.

Prague is another popular European destination because of its rich cultural heritage. It’s certainly a must to visit its Castle, which is actually the largest fortress in the world and includes such important buildings as the Cathedral of St. Vitus.
Another of the best known symbols of the area is the Charles Bridge, decorated with statues, mostly in the Baroque style. But remember, you can’t leave Prague without seeing its Astronomical Clock, a 15th century engineering work located in the Old City Square.
Another idyllic city that can be visited in a short period of time is Barcelona. This place has it all, the beach, the mountains, a shopping area, amazing restaurants, and it’s a hub of culture and art as well…
The architecture of the city is marked by its most renowned exponent: Antoni Gaudi. His works include the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, Casa Mila and Park Güell, among many other buildings. In Barcelona you can also enjoy the culture of other times, visit the Temple of Augustus, a Roman temple built during the imperial period, the Gothic Quarter, or return to the present to see the latest artistic trends at the MACBA, the museum of contemporary art.
