My favorite destinations in March
Boa Vista in Cape Verde
Boa Vista is an island located in the Cape Verde archipelago off the coast of West Africa. Also known as “Dune Island”, Boa Vista is famous for its huge beaches like Praia de Chaves or Praia de Santa Monica, its countless sand dunes and for its volcanic landscapes. If you are looking for tranquility in an exotic setting, this fairly desert island is perfect, it also has very beautiful hotels that will welcome you very well.
You will have the possibility of making beautiful walks on the island, on foot, on horseback, in quad or in 4×4 vehicules, and discover among others the Viana desert, the stranded boat of Cabo Santa Maria or the friendly city of Sal Rei. Many nautical activities are also offered on the island such as diving, catamaran trips, surfing, paddle boarding, windsurfing or kitesurfing. Finally, you can also participate in excursions to observe humpback whales or sea turtles.
Havana in Cuba
Havana is both the capital and the cultural center of Cuba. One of the favorite activities of tourists in Havana is the visit of Habana Vieja (the old town) which dates from the 16th century and the famous promenade of the Malecón by the sea. The old part of the city is indeed classified as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will find in particular the Castillo de la Real Fuerza, the Maritime Fortress Museum, the Baroque Cathedral of the Virgin Mary of the Immaculate Conception and Plaza Vieja, whose buildings testify to the architectural variety of the city. In the Centro Habana district, you can also discover the imposing El Capitolio, which was the former headquarters of the Cuban Congress, or the Revolution and Fine Arts museums.
Discovering the city in an old American car from the 1950s is a nice activity that I recommend, but know that the price is relatively expensive now. Finally, the city is also recognized for its festive atmosphere with its rumba groups playing in the alleys or its salsa tunes that escape from bars and nightclubs.
Jaipur in India
Jaipur is the capital of the Indian state of Rajasthan located in the north of the country. This city is nicknamed the “pink city”, because of the characteristic color of its buildings. The city tour immerses you in an unforgettable adventure thanks to its incredible historical heritage. Indeed, the city is home to many places of interest, such as the Palace of the Winds (Hawa Mahal) and its superb wavy facade of pink sandstone, or the imposing City Palace which remains a royal residence. A few kilometers from Jaipur, don’t forget to go to the very interesting Amber Fort, with its finely worked paintings and wall sculptures.
On the way back to Jaipur, you will discover Jal Mahal, a magnificent partially submerged palace that is reflected in the water. Also on the outskirts of the city, I advise you to visit the temple of Galta Ji or “monkeys temple”, as its name suggests, it is populated by many monkeys. Beyond these beautiful historic sites, getting lost in the streets of Jaipur through its markets and other bazaars remains for me great travel memories.
Las Vegas in USA
Las Vegas is an American city located in the Mojave Desert in the state of Nevada. The city, temple of entertainment and bling-bling, is of course renowned for its nightlife and its immense casinos and hotels open 24 hours a day. You can easily explore this multifaceted city through the city’s most famous avenue: the Strip, which is 4 miles long. You will find many themed hotels on this boulevard such as the Caesars palace, the MGM Grand or the Bellagio with its incredible fairyland of fountains. Other hotels even offer replicas of famous monuments such as the Luxor and its Egyptian pyramids, the Venetian and its Venice Canal, or the Paris Las Vegas and its Eiffel Tower.
Beyond the city, going to Las Vegas is also an opportunity to visit the surroundings and discover, for example, magnificent natural landscapes such as the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, Bryce canyon, Lake Mead, or the Valley of Fire.
Saint Barth (French island) in the Caraibbean
The Caribbean is a heavenly destination for those who wish to enjoy the beaches and the sea. Saint-Barth or Saint-Barthélemy is a destination of the French Indies that still escapes mass tourism, surely because the high cost of living. It is however worth exploring this island for its fine sandy beaches, its turquoise blue sea, its small coves, its mountains and its few historical points of interest. Gustavia is the main city of this island located north of Guadeloupe. The city is built around a marina and offers high-end restaurants. Make the most of your stay on the island to relax on the many superb beaches such as the ones of Saint Jean, the Flemish and Grand Cul-de-sac. To the west of the island, I also highly recommend the pretty walk that leads to Colombier beach.
