Top 5 holidays for travellers in their 30’s

You have finally hit your 30’s – you have worked your way up, are no longer dirt poor, and able to feast on finer things other than dried instant noodles.

You are ready to do the finer things in a new place (thank god for those budget airlines, provided you pack light!) in your own way. So, the team here at GoLearnTo would like to introduce you, the fabulous 30-something, to some fantastic new trips for those who live for their holidays and love to try new things but with a bit of luxury minus the crazy price tag.

These learning activity holidays are great for a group of like minded friends or the perfect escape for solo travellers wanting to meet others with similar interests. Get exploring, be curious and try new things, during your 3rd decade on this wondrous earth.

1. Spanish and surf holiday in Fuerteventura, Spain

Ideal for the social, as you will be placed in a shared room in the brightly lit, beachfront, Canarian style villa, or perfect for those who like their own space offering private rooms, this holiday will keep you active, brush up your Spanish language skills, and finding like minded company with both other students and locals. Take it easy and get a BBQ going in the garden at night with friends, or treat yourself to a beach front restaurant followed by a few drinks; the options are endless and cater to whatever budget you have in mind for a quick get-away with a short hop to Fuerteventura. Whatever your level, come see what the island has to offer; get your fix of Tapas, surf, Spanish, and even take a day with some new friends and explore the nearby natural park- this is the perfect island getaway for those with a free week coming up and no friends who have off work!

2. Yoga and SUP in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

If you are ready to up your beach game as you immerse yourself in lush surroundings, yoga and SUP in Costa Rica will make a fabulous change to your typical daily routine, and comes with gorgeous features that will leave you knowing, without doubt, that you are finally away from home and in paradise. A world away from the hostel holidays in our 20’s, this has a whole lot packed in at a price that will still not break the bank. Bring a friend, or treat yourself to a private room (now we can afford the luxury!), and get to know why people flock to Costa Rica with its waterfalls, huge palm trees, rainforests, and fresh fish meals on the beach. All of this plus daily yoga and SUP in the blue Pacific waters will have you feeling relaxed and sleeping like a baby in no time during hammock naps while the monkeys chatter away…

Perfect for someone who loves a bit of everything and simply can’t choose just one activity, this holiday is conveniently located in the ancient village of Saint-Jeannet on the border of Provence and the Cote D’Azur, and is perfect for you! Packed with the cobbled streets of medieval villages, chapels, walks on Roman paths, markets, French cooking and regional recipes, vineyards, and even goats (and their cheese) – this is THE holiday for those that want a bit of everything, and don’t know where to start. After 5 days of wonderful activities from yoga to cooking to hiking, you will have 2 free days to explore the places that drew you in the most, or get out into the great outdoors; go kayaking, wine tasting, or hit the museums. Your hosts at your cosy B&B will be there to point you in the right direction during your free time and team you up with someone who would like a similar experience of France off the beaten track.

5. Yoga with optional detox on the Costa Blanca, Spain

Perfect for the slightly undisciplined and the post weekend guilt-ridden, this place will help you kick start the detox, while keeping you social (we know how difficult it is to combine the two at home), and enjoying yourself. Easy to get to and conveniently located close to Alicante airport, this yoga retreat allows you to visit for any duration, on any date and offers various accommodation options and prices to fit every budget and levels of socializing. If you really want to go for it, have a 2 day juice detox; if you don’t, tuck into delicious fresh vegetarian meals that will leave you satisfied without the guilt. During your free time, take a stroll along the beach and check out the seaside villages, or just relax with a juice by the pool with a book. Feel free to join in as much or as little as you want – the choice is yours. This wellbeing holiday is designed to take things as they come.
