Macation Anyone? How the Fellas Should Go About Taking a Guy Trip!

Where has all the time gone? There’s only one month left until the Summer comes to a close, and a lot of us haven’t done squat. It’s almost as if we’ve been sitting around doing nothing, while the hot months pass us by. Well, some of you guys have been in the gym, trying to get that “Summer body” that we’ve been working on since January.

But everyone else has taken their fun trips and excursions. So why are you still at home eating hot wings, waiting for Love & Hip Hop to come on; or Sports Center? It’s to get your guy friends together to have an epic “Mancation”. You’ve seen that new Will Packer film Girl’s Trip right? Or you were dragged to it by your girlfriend, female friend, sister, mother. Anyway, do what they did. Get your best guy friends together, pick a place, and have a lot of fun.

Now remember, you don’t have a lot of time left so here are some locations that you and your friends can consider. No matter where you choose to go, the point is that you’re having fun with your friends.


Dubai

First up is Dubai, one of the world’s most luxurious, exotic, and exciting destinations. Just in case you didn’t do too well in geography class, this Middle Eastern city is located in the United Arab Emirates. And the tourist can enjoy the metropolis of Dubai, the surrounding beaches, or the desert that isn’t too far away.

Dubai holds some of the world’s grandest hotels and best shopping. Their malls are beyond impressive. However, if you get tired of the city life you can take a desert safari, and ride around on camels and desert-runners (might not be the correct name). And if you don’t want to spend your entire day in a desert paradise, Dubai has indoor skiing.


Las Vegas

Not everyone has a passport, and that’s okay because there are plenty of places in the U.S. to have fun. Las Vegas or Sin City has been the epicenter of bachelor (and bachelorette) parties for years. People generally go to this city to have unrestricted fun. There’s bars, lounges, casinos, hotels, and tons of people to partake in the party. If you have doubts about Vegas, ask anyone you know who’s been there.


MancationRio de Janeiro

It’s not Carnival season, but Brazil is a great destination year round. Not only is Rio and its beaches beautiful, but the people are beautiful also. Voluptuous women are everywhere. And there’s a lot of delicious food to consume.

Brazil’s tourism has increased a lot since the new millennium. Who wouldn’t love a place where the people give a round of applause to the sunset? There’s beaches, mountains, rain forests, orchards, and lagoons to explore. And if any of your friends are good at soccer, then you guys are in the perfect place.


MancationMontreal

Ever wanted to go to France, but couldn’t afford the European flight. People forget that there’s a city with a lot of French influence right here in North America. Montreal has the same cobblestone streets and similar grand architecture as Paris itself. And there are many boutiques, restaurants, and attractions that will make you believe that you’re in Europe. But don’t expect the Effel tower.


Puerto Rico

San Juan

Puerto Rico is a hot spot. Within the last couple of years, a lot of people have been making trips to the island. And the best part is that no one needs a passport. Because Puerto Rico is a territory of the U.S. and Americans don’t need passports to travel there or to Guam. But it’s the perfect place to feel like you’re getting out of the country. The island may be small, but a lot of partying goes on around those beaches of white sand and blue water.
