As great as it can be to plan a holiday, it can sometimes be tricky to know exactly where the best place is to go. If you’re like most people, you’re continually daydreaming about your perfect trip, but when it comes time to book it, it can be tough narrowing down the many great destinations available.
Whether you take a holiday every year and you’re planning the best destination for this year, or you haven’t had a holiday in a long time so you want it to be extraordinary, there are a few things you can do to narrow down the perfect place.
Some people like to go somewhere new each time they go on holiday, while others tend to find one place where they’ve had an amazing time and then stick to it- returning again and again. If you’re the type who always returns to the same destination (or even the same resort!), it can be difficult to take the risk of heading somewhere new when you may not like it quite as much. But let’s not forget that there’s also a chance that you may end up liking the new destination more, and having an even better time while learning about a brand new culture, interesting history, and different people.
So how do you narrow down which place is the best for a perfect holiday? First of all, you’ll need to consider exactly who you’re travelling with. If you’re heading off on holiday alone, you get to make 100% of the decisions by yourself too, which can be both a good and bad thing- no compromise, but no input or feedback.
If you’re travelling with kids, you’ll want to choose a destination that’s kid-friendly, so that the whole family can enjoy themselves (honeymoon destinations are typically out). Couples may want to choose a resort that’s entirely kid-free, while a group of young friends may be all about adventure.
Next, consider what you’d like to do on your holiday. Some people want to do nothing more than lie on the beach and pretend that they never have to go back to work, while others get bored of this in about three minutes. If you’re travelling with someone who loves adventure, while you love nothing more than relaxing with a cocktail and a good book, you’ll want a destination that allows you to do a little of both- so you’ll both feel like you’ve had a balanced holiday.

I got Costa Teguise, Spain, which I’ve never been to but I’m now researching the best time of the year to go.
