Holiday Bookings for 2008 From Ireland to Overseas Destinations

Feb 25, 2008
Ireland residents are already booking their holiday spots for 2008. They are seeking out places such as Majorca and Menorca in the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, and other places located across the Mediterranean, as well as South America. It seems that with unreliable weather conditions in Ireland during the summer months, residents would prefer to go out of the country for their holidays.

No More Weather Worries

When weather conditions made a turn for the worse in the summer of 2007, many Irish residents tried to book holidays to different locations overseas. Because many of the package deals were already booked, however, they were stuck at home. So that won't happen again, they are booking their holidays early for peace of mind. Now they have better choices of accommodation, along with guaranteed flights.

Holiday Hot Spots for the Irish

Most Ireland residents are also very concerned when it comes to environmental issues. For this reason, they are choosing holiday destinations that are eco-friendly and also offer kids options for having fun. To this end, the hot spots that are being booked early this year include:

Madagascar - This destination proves a favorite among kids! The wildlife is unmatched in any other place in the world. Madagascar teems with unusual plant life that is a wonder to behold. You can go whitewater rafting down obscure rivers, stroll sandy white beaches, trek up mountains, and even spelunk through caves infested with crocodiles.

Guatemala - This country has more than 19 different ecosystems that are sometimes separated only by small rivers. Guatemala has its own unique varieties of flora and fauna, as well, which are a sight to see. Because of its diversity, Guatemala offers many opportunities for outdoor adventures, including:

* Fishing
* Caving
* Horseback Riding
* Hang Gliding
* Mountain Trekking
* Volcano Climbing
* Bird-watching
* Pilgrimages
* Bicycling
* Rafting
* Diving

Nicaragua - This destination has it all. It can please any traveler in one way or another. Activities include fishing, wildlife viewing, snorkeling, and many other outdoor adventures. You may even catch a glimpse of some fresh-water sharks. Landmarks include Isla de Ometepe, an active volcano that last erupted in 1957, the main plaza, and caves filled with over 20,000 bats. Plenty of adventure can be found in Nicaragua.

Honduras - Places to visit in Honduras include Pulhapanzak Falls, which is 43 meters high. If you check out the ruins of Copan, you can learn about King Great Sun Lord Quetzal Macaw, who ruled Honduras from AD 426 to 435. Other popular places to visit in Honduras include Lago de Yojoa, the largest lake in Honduras, as well as Iglesia de los Delores, which is a huge white church featuring pieces of religious art on the inside of the building.

Colombia - Also on the list of hot places to travel this summer is Colombia, the only South American country with coasts on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean. You will find marvelous beaches, grand colonial cities, and many archaeological treasures to keep you in awe.

The capital of Colombia is Bogota, a city rich with history and culture, including old cities and beautiful churches. Cartagena, a fortress to keep pirates away in the old days, is now a place to go for nightlife entertainment. Isla Gorgona was once a prison, and now tourists are welcomed to view the ruins. You will also see scores of monkeys, snakes, whales, and other wildlife while you are visiting the prison. This especially intrigues the kids!

If Ireland's summer weather conditions prompt travel urges, the winter weather on the opposite side of the world might prove to be just the right ticket.
