Day 2

Start the day early with surf lessons on the beach with Cocoa Beach Surf School by Flohana. Cocoa Beach is known as the “surf capital of the East Coast.” Choose from private, semi-private and group lessons; they also offer surf clinics. Once your surf lessons are over, spend the day relaxing at the beach. They offer chair and umbrella rentals and even do the set up for you.

Day 3

Spend part of the day in Cape Canaveral. Start off at the Kennedy Space Center. Learn more about NASA and get a chance to meet and chat with veteran astronauts. Wander around and enjoy up-close views of NASA memorabilia and the Space Shuttle Atlantis. Take an epic journey into space with immersive films and experiences. Spend some time at Port Canaveral and watch the cruise ships come and go. Next head back to Cocoa Beach to go to the world’s largest surf shop, Ron Jon’s. Whether you are a surfer or not, you can’t miss this shop; make sure to grab some merchandise as a souvenir.

Day 4

Get an early start to the day with some fishing; whether you brought your own gear or not, head to the pier for the best fishing spots. The pier extends 800 feet over the Atlantic Ocean, offering many different types of fish to catch. The fishing pier opens at 6 a.m., so make sure to get there earlier to get a good spot. After a morning of fishing head to Dog Sea for a quick bite to eat before leaving for the airport.

The Party Starts Late and Lasts Past Dawn in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina, comes to life at night. Translating to “good airs” or “fair winds,” Buenos Aires is an autonomous district filled to the brim with eclectic European architecture and a rich cultural life. The multicultural city, a melting pot of language, history, incredible food and music, comes to life at night. When you travel to Buenos Aires, be prepared to eat late, choose from hundreds of restaurants and thousands of bars and clubs, and dance beyond dawn. The city’s nightlife, as varied as it is intense, allows you to dance to whatever rhythm takes your fancy. A city that oozes sex appeal, it proves dynamic and passionate, and the beauty and rhythm will get under your skin for an amazing trip.
