8 types of travellers: Which destinations in Latin America suit you?

Latin America Guide

5. The Lazy-Bum

Typical characteristics

You have worked so hard and now you want to enjoy your time off and do absolutely nothing. Well actually that is not entirely true, you are working on your tan while sipping cocktails. You don’t really care about what country you are in as long as the sun is shining and the beach chair and sun umbrella are part of the all-inclusive deal of your hotel. The last thing you need during your time off is a challenge and you want to travel as little as possible.

Places to visit

Tamarindo and Jacó in Costa Rica, Playa del Carmen and Cancun in Mexico and Fortaleza in Brazil. These are all places that are very touristic and therefore easily accessible as they are close to international airports or have good access through domestic flights.

Places to avoid

Pretty much everything else. If you are travelling by public transport, getting around in Latin America can be quite a bit of work and it can take a lot of time to reach places.
