Villa di Mare in Playa Puerto Nuevo, Puerto Rico
Despite being located in Puerto Rico, Villa di Mare exudes the atmosphere of a large Greek Mediterranean island. This Airbnb is very spacious, but let’s be serious – we check in here for access to the private beach. You can also just relax by the private pool and enjoy the salty Atlantic breeze. For other activities, this rental is in Vega Baja, which is less than five minutes from restaurants, supermarkets, and one of the top ten beaches in Puerto Rico: Playa Puerto Nuevo.

Colonial house in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Located in the historic center of Santo Domingo, this colonial home pretty much beats when it comes to checking every box in the Dominican Republic. Historical sights of the “New World”? Check. Traditional colmado (a small grocery store) playing music in the evenings? Check. Walk to Malecon? Check. You don’t do the Dominican Republic without visiting Santo Domingo.

Casa de Los Santos in La Paz, Baja California, Mexico
If you want to be close to downtown but don’t want to stay in a hotel, set up your stay at the Casa de los Santos in La Paz, Baja California, Mexico. Located between downtown La Paz and the beach, this Airbnb has everything you will love: indoor/outdoor kitchen, pool and grill on the large patio, popular cafes and restaurants within walking distance. The spacious and cozy accommodation is key to relaxation, but the large living room, dining room and kitchen will really bring your group together after a long day of exploring the city.

Casa Jose Clemente Orozco Coyoacan in Mexico City, Mexico
Tiny House Nature Experience in Mairipora, Brazil
São Paulo is arguably the busiest place in Brazil, at least for travelers looking for beach parties, live music, good food, and strong drinks. But if you’re looking for a more relaxed, carefree mentality, then book this tiny home just 45 minutes from São Paulo. The residence is literally in the middle of a line of trees. The rooms are equipped with large windows, natural light and hammocks. There is also a garden, a balcony and a fireplace. Added bonus: you are within walking distance of a lake, so you can relax after a long day in the sun.
