It’s a great idea to pack your bags and travel in May. Whether it’s for a relaxing beach getaway or an exciting city adventure you’ll find beautiful weather and amazing prices in many of the world’s top destinations. Check out these amazing hotspots that are perfect for a May vacation.
Spring is widely considered the best time to visit Greece. In May the temperatures are warm but not overly hot like they are in the summertime. The large summer crowds haven’t arrived yet either, so this is a great time to explore some beautiful islands. Renting a private villa in coastal areas like Mykonos and Santorini is the ideal way to enjoy a Greece vacation in May.
Similar to Greece, May is a wonderful time to head over to coastal areas in Italy. Comfortable weather, better prices, and smaller crowds create a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy scenery and culture. The luxurious Amalfi Coast is filled with breathtaking scenery and friendly locals.
With so many luxurious safari camps opening up, there’s never been a better time to explore Africa in style. May is a great time to visit the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The temperatures are dry and less hot with clear skies and lush landscaping. Observing rare wildlife in their natural habitat at Vumbara Plains Camp will be a guaranteed unforgettable experience.
Seeing the mountainous scenery in St. Lucia should be on every bucket list for Caribbean vacations. The weather here is beautiful year round, but May is an especially fun time to plan a visit. The St. Lucia Jazz Festival happens this month, which is an internationally renowned event bringing together musicians and artists from around the world.
