One of the most beautiful places in the world that I have found in my travels is Tahiti. It is one of the few places that was even more magical in person than it looked in photographs. The water was warm and crystal blue. You could wade in several feet and see the bottom of the sand. Amazingly clear, clean water that felt more like a bath than the ocean.
The scenery was spectacular.
It was very laid back and peaceful there.
The over water bungalows made you feel like you were stranded on a deserted island. You could feed the fish from your coffee table. It was quite extraordinary.
The backdrop was an ideal setting for romance and I highly recommend it for honeymooners or just a romantic getaway.
My family friendly favorite has got to be Costa Rica. The country was so beautiful and tropical everywhere you looked. There was so much to do. Our favorite was zip lining through the jungle.
Our all-inclusive resort was right on the beach and had a spectacular pool.
There were so many activities for the family. One was horseback riding on the beach.
Everywhere you looked there was wildlife.
Overall, the best family vacation we ever had.
