Born between 1980 and the year 2000, millennials are a generation known not only for their love for technologies and social media, but also for their passion for traveling! And now that we think about it, they actually go hand in hand—tweeting about the dream destination, posting cute vacations pictures on “The Gram”, checking in on Facebook…
As this generations starts to grow up, become more mature (sort of!) and financially independent, traveling has proven to be one of the biggest aspirations for millennials. In fact, according to The Fun Plan, one of the biggest travel agencies in Spain, your regular millennial will happily spend an average of 20% of their monthly income to travel around the world.
The other 80% will probably go to paying their never-ending student loans and treating themselves with the latest iPhone. But, hey! At least they’re traveling.
But where are millennials going? Certainly, somewhere Instagram worthy! Check out the top 5 dream destinations for Generation Y!
1. Riviera Maya, Mexico
Bathed by the waters of the Caribbean Sea, this is one of millennial’s favorite destinations for the summer days and the holidays. One of its main attractions is Playa del Carmen, 68 kilometers away from Cancun, where you can swim with dolphins in Xcaret ecological park.
2. Ibiza, Spain
The island with turquoise waters offers so many fun options you won’t even know which one to choose! Boat trips to discover unusual coastal landscapes, trips on air balloons to have the very best view of life, water sports in the mornings and endless night clubs are only some of the many things to in the island.
3. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
There’s no doubt millennials love beaches, and that’s exactly why they love Punta Cana. Must-see activities in the Dominican town include snorkeling in the Saona Island, surfing in the crystal-clear waters of Macao, and kayaking in El Cortecito.
4. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
A city with beautiful architectural designs from the 16th and 17th century— the perfect environment for romanticism! The Amsterdam Museum is a mandatory stop to see the work of the legendary Van Gogh. And of course, there’s the local delicacies like Amsterdam’s iconic apple pie!
