Culinary destinations, sustainable tourism, tourists traveling with pets, family vacations… 2020 is the opportunity to live an endless number of new adventures and, here, we will address some of the travel trends in the coming year for NexusTours destinations, and help you choose the best travel options for your customers.
As part of the wave of sustainability that permeates the world at this moment, the increase in the emergence of new options within the destinations with the aim of reducing environmental impact is one of the main trends.
Similarly, when we take into consideration the environment and aim to find a way to be part of the solution, it is desirable to look for less polluting means of travel. Even if it takes a little bit of time from the client’s holidays, the benefit for them will be to slow down the hectic pace of their daily life before reaching their destination. They will value the tranquility and enjoy the journey better until they reach their destination.
Offer more with less. Choose destinations with multiple attractions such as Cancun, Mexico or Liberia, Costa Rica, which offer a wide and varied combination of activities. This will result in a vacation filled with fun, time to relax, and with the necessary infrastructure to facilitate the days away from home to your client.
A trend that is constantly growing is traveling with pets, because it makes no sense to leave our faithful companion at home. Tourists now think about the needs of their pets before choosing where to go, where to stay and what to do. It is important to consider that the search for destinations with hotels that take good care not only of the traveler but also of their pet has increased. They look for accommodations that have special characteristics for them, because it is no secret that they are important members of the family.
In the meantime, have you considered family vacations without parents? That’s right! This is a new side of grandparents and grandchildren enjoying a quality time. Grandparents feel rejuvenated with their grandchildren, they exude energy and vitality, and grandchildren are more spoiled than ever. In addition, parents get a “vacation” to rest and enjoy a moment alone.
On the other hand, it is guaranteed that culinary destinations will continue to be a trend during 2020. The novelty lies in the search for local food with a home-made flavor, places that probably only locals know about. Dishes made with fresh regional ingredients that support the local economy, that are sustainable and that create a unique experience for the traveler.
For example, Mexico is one of the most sought-after destinations for its traditional dishes; however, what many don’t know is that the Dominican Republic also has a delicious culinary side.
Finally, according to Forbes magazine, Aruba and Costa Rica, two of our NexusTours destinations are among the best places to travel in 2020. This is partly because they have sustainable options that will no doubt remain one of the biggest trends for a long time to come.
Stay tuned to these markets, new targets and new destinations.
Have a good trip!
