Travel Ideas for Men
Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • Juneau is the capital of Alaska and one of the largest cities in South East Alaska. One of the things that makes this city pretty unique is that the Mendenhall Glacier is located not far from downtown and unlike other spots in Alaska, you can actually see it without having to book an expensive excursion. However, there's a lot more to do in the area, so let's take a look at some of our picks for the top things to do in Juneau.

  • Puerto Vallarta was popularized in the 1960's as a top destination for Hollywood elite but over the years faded a bit as it was eclipsed by other parts of Mexico where fancy mega resorts were built (including Riviera Nayarit... just a few miles north). My visit was hosted by Puerto Vallarta Tourism and Casa Velas resort, but after spending a week here and exploring it a bit, I was impressed since unlike other "tourist towns". Unlike other places that I've visited in Mexico, Puerto Vallarta is more than just mega resorts with all-inclusive packages designed for rich Americans. Instead, it's a real city with great culture and tons of opportunities for guys to have fun. Here are some of the top reasons why it makes a fantastic destination for your next guys getaway.

  • Most Americans unfortunately only have a vague understanding of what Philippines is all about. The country is so off the radar when it comes to mainstream tourism, that it’s likely you won’t even consider going there on your next mancation. This is really a shame, since going to beautiful undeveloped countries opens up a ton of possibilities to have fun and enjoy a very special holiday. Plus, you'll find that your money goes much... much farther than more popular spots.

  • If you have been suddenly struck by the wanderlust bug only for it to be accompanied by an adrenaline junkie itch, it’s time to satisfy the two and embark on some adventure travel. If you love nothing more than skydiving out of a plane, jumping from a bridge with some elastic around your ankles or heading off on extreme hikes across the daunting terrain, you will want to mimic this adventurous tone in your next vacation.

  • So, you have been tasked with planning your friend’s bachelor party? A lot of people assume that bachelor parties are easier to plan. After all, all you need is alcohol and strippers, right? Wrong! In fact, very, very wrong if your friend is not the sort of person that would appreciate a stripper! They are only going to get one bachelor party, and so you need to make sure it is one to remember for all of the right reasons. With that in mind, read on to discover everything that you need to achieve bachelor party success.

  • We were really impressed by our visit to Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta Mexico, but what we didn't realize is that they have some awesome bachelor party and mancation packages too. While resorts like Casa Velas have unlimited golf packages, they also offer golf and fishing packages, in-room cocktail parties, taco bars, and even Guacamania...

  • We had the privilege of joining the Norwegian Bliss as guests of the cruise line during its inaugural West Coast cruise out of Los Angeles. While our cruise experience was just under two days, it was abundantly clear that Bliss is the finest ship sailing under the flag of any of the major cruise lines today. Not only did it hit the mark for virtually everything I could possibly review - but it offered new experiences that will help open cruising to new audiences in search of manly adventure.

  • Casa Velas is a boutique hotel located only a 10 minute ride from the Puerto Vallarta airport that offers nightly activities including cigar rolling, tequila tasting, craft beer tasting, and cocktail making, plus includes unlimited golf at three different Puerto Vallarta golf courses. We stayed here as a guest of the hotel and had a fantastic experience that might make this one of our favorite destinations.

  • Honestly, even though I was with a tour group I was a bit afraid to tour Puerto Vallarta at night. Unfortunately Mexico doesn't have the best reputation these days but thankfully I ignored those concerns because I had an awesome experience that was safe, clean, and tourist friendly. While I'm sure that most of you could wander around and explore the Puerto Vallarta food scene on your own - it was so much easier to do with the folks at Vallarta Food Tours who guided us and made everything easy.

  • Majorca (or Mallorca), one of the most visited islands in Europe is located in the Mediterranean sea, to the South East of Spain. This perfect location gives Majorca extraordinary weather that is the envy of most parts of Europe. As the largest of the Balearic islands, it is a prime holiday destination of many Europeans but also a great spot for Americans too. Here's some of the reasons why you should consider the island for your next lads holiday or mancation!

  • While many Americans sadly might not know much about Morocco - it's cities are legendary... Tangier, Casablanca, Marrakesh, and of course, who hasn't heard of a "Fes Hat"? As the most stable country in Africa and the most wealthy per capita, Morocco has been a tourist destination for generations. As a result, this is a great opportunity to explore some of the most exotic places on earth while creating memories that will last a lifetime. Let's take a look at some of our picks for mancation ideas in Morocco.

  • Planning a father and son guys getaway vacation can be a challenge.  On one hand, you have to pick a destination that will hold the attention of an active boy. On the other hand, you need to find a spot that also appeals to you. But lounging in a hammock while sipping margaritas on some tropical island isn’t much of a comprise.   

    Disney World is a great middle-ground because it offers a variety of activities that you and your son will both enjoy and plenty of opportunities to bond. There are thrilling theme park rides, giant water parks, mouth-watering cuisine, sports, boats, monorails, swimming pools, and the list goes on. While it may sound like a kid’s destination on the surface, trust me, grown men have just as much fun as the kids! With that said, let’s take a look at how to plan a father/son Disney World adventure.

  • Whether travelling with a group of your mates for a lads holiday or or a more reserved mancation getaway, Gozo is a destination you may not have thought of, but should. It’s ideally suited for guys because while it has all the activities you might want - hiking, fishing, diving, surfing, snorkelling, biking, etc. but it's a bit off the beaten path. Because of this, you're going to find more personal attention, lower costs and more opportunity to relax on the idea, the second largest island in the Maltese archipelago.

  • I learned more about the dynamics of a performance automobile in three hours at the BMW Performance Center than I think I have in the past 20 years of simply driving on my own. Once you pass "drivers ed" in high school, most guys simply learn from trial and error. Unfortunately, that can be a very expensive and painful way to learn - and most likely you still will not have proper techniques. I am on a mission to break that pattern, so BMW invited me out to their school for the day. What I discovered there was far more than just the "driving experience" that I expected.

  • While most casinos want to keep you trapped inside their giant resorts, there's much much more to Las Vegas than the modern glitz and glam. While these air conditioned resorts might be the perfect spot to hang out in the summer, come fall, late winter and early spring Las Vegas has a wealth of outdoor adventures that are perfect for a guys trip. Let's purge a bit of the glitz and glamour and head off strip to see what we can find.

  • The beautiful continent of Australia makes a popular vacation destination, with bright blue water that makes the beaches a top hotspot. Although the land and water may provide gorgeous sights to see, there are still some emergencies that could come up while vacationing there. With these five tips for dealing with vacation troubles, anyone can be as prepared as possible no matter how their trip goes. 

  • There’s almost no bad time to visit London and explore this amazing city with someone special. While London isn't known as a romantic city like it's sister across the channel is but when you peek beneath the rigid British facade you'll discover that this city is every bit as romantic as New York or Paris.

  • Nevada is one of those states where most visitors only visit one or two points. In the case of this state, you have Vegas and Reno... but while much of the state is empty desert, there are some real gems that deserve more attention. Carson Valley is one of those spots and it's surprisingly convenient, low cost, and packed with awesome stuff that guys of all ages will love.

  • Indonesia’s rich diversity extends beyond the people, culture, and ethnicity. The sprawling archipelago is also home to a myriad of wildlife that will fascinate anyone. From birds to primates, discover awesome native animals you can only see in Indonesia.
