1. Stay at the Blue Wave Guest House (Caye Caulker, Belize)

If 1,200-thread cotton sheets are part of your travel requirements, the Blue Wave Guesthouse might not be the place for you. But if tropical summercamp vibes (impromptu parties, spur-of-the-moment pick-up soccer games) and a location 20 feet from the ocean, spitting distance from some of Belize’s best food, and close proximity to the world’s second-largest largest coral reef suits your tastes (not to mention super affordable rates and hammocks—did we mention the hammocks?) this might be the move for that last-minute vacation. Even better it’s located on super-friendly, hard-to-reach Caye Caulker—the mandatory 45-minute boat ride from Belize City is part of the fun. Holler at Julian (501-206-0114) for up-to-date rates and availability—or just book here)
