14 Places Where It’s Summer Right Now

Even in April you can tour your dream beach spots, sip cocktails and go on fun adventures


The time for cold temperatures, snow storms, wet feet, and heavy coats is gone, but summer is still not around the corner in certain parts of the world.

Picturing yourself in a shorts walking on the beach and sipping drinks seems like an impossible dream. The need to get away from the city grows. This is where you can go right now.[slideshow:100564]

Jump on a plane – you may be surprised how many airlines offer huge discounts this time of year – and find yourself in flip-flops, heading to a scuba diving center, for the ultimate thrilling adventure – swim with the sharks.

Some of the locations on this list fit in the “last-minute destination that will not cost you fortune” category. Experience two exciting cultures in one vacation; see the splendor of some remote, untouched and naturally beautiful beaches; go on a surprisingly thrilling whitewater rafting adventure, or consider adventurous day trips, such a catamaran cruise.

Being spontaneous and impulsive is always adventurous but not always possible. Even in April you can tour some of your dream beach spots, live like a local in an offbeat location in Africa, and go on a rugged quest to push your limits.
