More infamously, Miami is known for its party scene. According to TimeOut, dance to the Latin beats, LGBT hotspots, snack at the night eateries, and come morning, take a late morning stroll to the coffee shops.
4. London, Britain
Now, take an international trip to the country that brought us the Beatles, Ramones, and obsessions with the royals: Britain. More specifically, venture to Britain’s capital, London, where you are sure to experience the English city life.
While in London, make sure you visit the Tower of London, the British Museum (which is free), Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey.
5. Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

The locals (or ticos) live a pura vida lifestyle (which translates to “simple life”), which in a nutshell means not to sweat the small stuff. That said, you can bet you’ll have a relaxing and peaceful experience.
Now, Puerto Viejo is known as the hub for the party scene, where dancing and music are in the air. If you’d rather have a quieter trip, you may want to stay in Cahuita or Santa Teresa.
