i can adapt to different type of traveling but i like adrenalin stuff the most. it has to be somewhere warm with a sea. That is why Costa Rica look promising...rafting, zip-lining, interestin jungle, beautiful latin women :)

have you been anywhere interesting ?

When are you going? Not sure the sea around Amsterdam is ever warm, but it's an awesome place to visit. I have been there a couple times and you can make a trip to Amsterdam whatever you want, great party scene, great cultural scene, if you know what you are looking for great food scene.

I am going to Cuba in a couple weeks, but just to a resort, not really travelling Cuba. I have been to Cuba before, Mexico, Dominican Republic, all of which have nice resorts and good beaches, good day trips, but again I haven't actually explored the real country. If you are going more in the summer than I would highly recommend the southern coast of Croatia. Dubrovnik is great, Hvar is my favourite place in the world I have ever been. Again, great relaxing days hanging out on the sea, good little bars and cafes, great food, and at night it turns into a real party scene, mostly for young drunk English people.

i'm thinking about going in May.

Amsterdam is definetly on my to-go list before i die.

I'm not into partying or resorts. I was in Vardero, Cuba which was a resort and it was the worst part of my trip.I'm looking for excitement.
I was in Croatia many times since it's close to me but i'm looking for more exotic destinations.

HOw was Dominican rep. ?

It's just a resort type place. Resorts are nice, they have typical things like swimming with dolphins and ziplining or whatever, nothing to exciting. Not worth travelling across the ocean for, unless you are into something specific like cigars.

For getting more exotic, one of my next trips will hopefully be Peru. I would love to do the Inca trail and see Machu Pichhu. I have a buddy that has been to almost anywhere in the world you can think of and he spent a month in Peru and raves about as one of his favourite places.

The best vacation I have even had was 15 days rafting the Grand Canyon, first trip of the season is in early May and you might have to book 12 months ahead of time.

New Zealand

Just spent 3 weeks travelling New Zealand and it is hands down the most beautiful country in the world. I cant believe what I was seeing, turquoise lakes, green hills, volcanoes, thermals, geezers. Its the most stunning natural place on earth. So many adventures and activities as well. You'll need a bit of cash, but it is superb

I spent 13 years in Costa Rica. Weather is OK but it depends on the region. Sea temperature is always warm. Latin girls are HOT.. but also a bit wild. I've got one at home so I sort of know what I'm talking about LOL :laugh: Nature is amazing if you want to see different things in a short period of time. Jungles, Mountains,Volcanoes, Beaches (although not as spectacular as in the Caribbean)
Just keep in mind Costa Rica is sort of expensive.
It's an interesting place to visit. Let me know if you decide to go there, I can probably recommend a few places depending on what you wanna do and what you are interested in.

Hmm, probably can't offer much, as I'm not much for adrenaline stuff. You could try the three peaks challenge.
