The capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, Barcelona could well be the ideal destination for a European urban getaway. This historic, artistic, gastronomic, sporting hub is full of great food and attractions for everyone to enjoy.

Barcelona is great for food,

Hacker Tip

With overtourism being a very real issue in Barcelona and so many travelers flooding in during peak season, we suggest visiting during the slower, winter months for a more local experience (also you will likely save money, a nice bonus).

San José del Cabo


You’re going to love San José del Cabo

San José del Cabo is great for relaxation & beach.

Hacker Tip

A 30-minute drive from the touristy Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo is its more laidback cousin. You’ll find pretty views, a historic center and miles of white sand beaches.

You’re going to love Lisbon

Portugal’s capital is one of Europe’s most exciting destinations. This may be due to its youthful, creative population, or it could be the gourmet and artistic renaissance that the city is undergoing. Or perhaps it’s the blend of superb museums and historical attractions. Whatever the reason, Lisbon will captivate everyone who visits.

Lisbon is great for culture,
sightseeing & art.

Hacker Tip

Get lost in the Alfama district’s maze of pretty, narrow streets where you’ll find indie shops, restaurants, and hidden plazas. But wear your walking shoes: the city’s many steps and steep inclines can be a workout.

Saint Thomas

U.S. Virgin Islands

You’re going to love Saint Thomas

Travel passport-free to a paradise of beaches, seafood, snorkeling, and golf. And while people are catching on, it’s still not as popular as some other Caribbean spots, which means fewer tourists.

Climb the “99 Steps” (there are actually 103, but who’s counting?) built from the remnants of Danish tall ships. At the top, catch the view from the summit of Government Hill.
