We change continent and go to America, to be exact in the Bahamas, a archipelago made up of 700 islands and islets. Long a British colony, the Bahamas are another of favorite destinations for honeymooners. The cost of airfare can weigh heavily on the budget.

In short, we are in the Caribbean, precisely off the coast of Florida (from which several day trips also depart).

The geographic conformation of its "cayos" makes these islets long strips of sand immersed in a sea that cannot be clearer!

Don't miss the beaches of Albufeira and Lagos but don't miss visiting Faro, the nerve center of the region.

You will see pastel-colored historic cars strolling through the streets of Habana Vieja, passing in front of the Revolution Museum to stop and enjoy the best rum in the world at La Bodeguita del Medio.
Among the best beaches we suggest Varadero and Cayo Largo.

But Cuba is not just Havana, however enormous the beauty and interest of its capital may be. Countries like Cienfuegos, Santa Clara, Trinidad and Viñales are perhaps the best places to still breathe the authentic atmosphere of Cuba.

If possible, prefer the first half of the month as from the second part we enter the rainy season that gives way to tropical cyclones.

A somewhat unusual maritime destination, but absolutely practicable and located on the coast of the mediterranean sea. Tel Aviv is a very city large and populous, and has long been the capital of Israel.

One of the most multi-ethnic and avant-garde metropolises in the Middle East, full of points of interest scattered throughout the urban fabric.

It is located exactly in the center of the gulf marked by the coasts of Turkey, Syria and Lebanon, south of the Anatolian peninsula. A territory, in short, which in addition to giving it geographically unparalleled beauty, has been marked by a thousand-year history that is reflected in its cities, starting with the capital Nicosia. A perfect solution, therefore, for those who love to alternate sunny days and the beach with excursions and naturalistic and historical visits.
