These days it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of interests and distractions that draw our attention. Every moment needs to be captured, too – what you had for lunch, who you met up with, where you went for the weekend. The trend of being on all the time can get exhausting and that’s where the idea of digital detox comes in: vacations or retreats where there is minimal or no interaction with technology.
Get ready to unplug and declutter your life with these destinations:
The world’s southernmost continent offers the ultimate escape from technology. Disconnect from the rest of the world and keep an eye out for adorable penguins and massive icebergs instead.
Say hello to complete serenity in Nepal, where you can go on a retreat at a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. Find inner peace by learning how to meditate and properly channel your focus onto the right things instead of getting distracted by all the noise.
Go off the grid in one of Costa Rica’s rainforest regions, where you can choose to stay in one of the jungle resorts or lodges. Take advantage of its remoteness by hiking jungle trails, climbing waterfalls or going kayaking.
St. Vincent and the Grenadines
Palm Island is located in the remote St. Vincent and the Grenadines, a country in the Caribbean. The island discourages technology, so there’s no WiFi, in-room phone or even the requisite television in hotel rooms. There are, however, five beaches, two restaurants and one lagoon to keep you busy during your stay.
Take camping to a whole new level by going on wild camping in Norway, where you can pitch a tent away from the hustle and bustle of life. Amenities will depend on what you choose to bring, so choose to wisely and go with basic necessities.
Cuba just recently opened their borders to the rest of the world, so it’s still relatively difficult to get a good internet connection. Take some time out from social media and explore Havana’s colorful old town or head to one of Cuba’s beautiful beaches for the perfect tan.
