Frolic with flamingos on Aruba
Aruba’s private Renaissance Island is home to a flock of flamingoes which spend their days strolling along the beach and wading through the balmy Caribbean waters. The beach is primarily open to resort residents, however, a day pass can be purchased on the day for $99.00, which includes lunch, 1 drink, and a water float. It doesn’t get more Insta-pretty than this! Make sure you bring your camera, as you’ll want to remember the day you frolicked with flamingoes and got up close with these amazing birds!

Crystal Caves Bermuda
Explore underground lakes of Bermuda
Bermuda’s Crystal Caves are a sight to be seen, with crystal clear underground lakes, stalactites, and stalagmites. These huge formations, which grow slowly each year, began 30 million years ago. Even the most difficult to please tween will stand mouth agape at these incredible wonders of earthly beauty. Their sister property, Fantasy Caves, is equally astonishing and well worth the visit.
