2017 Travel Trends

2016 is coming to a close and we’re looking ahead to the next year of luxury travel. What will change about the way we vacation in the coming year? You can expect to see these trends emerge in 2017.

Special Event Vacations

More and more, travelers are seeking unique experiences abroad. Planning a vacation around a special event gives your trip an unforgettable feel – and gives you something to brag about on social media.

Casa de Campo is looking forward to hosting several special events in 2017, like the 43rd Annual International Pro Am golf tournament in January, and the 1st Annual Sporting/5 Stand Pro Am Clay Shoot in March.

Going Green

The United Nations declared 2017 the International Year of Sustainable Tourism. How can you support this initiative as a traveler? Our five tips for an environmentally friendly vacation include:

– Going paperless

– Using eco-friendly products

– Leaving environments clean and undisrupted

– Eating local

– Connecting with nature in mind, body, and spirit

Multigenerational Trips

Multigenerational travel has been steadily growing over the past several years and has emerged as one of the biggest travel trends for 2017. As baby boomers retire and extended family members live farther away from one another, multigenerational trips become a way for families to get together in a fun, new environment.

What makes an ideal multi-generational travel destination? It should offer something for everyone: comfort and luxury for seniors, adventure and sport for active younger generations, extensive children’s programs, and great dining options for big family dinners.

Wellness Destinations

2016 saw an increase in wellness vacations, and we expect to see travelers wanting more in 2017. The right vacation can help you relax, rejuvenate, and recharge, resulting in a lasting positive impact on your life.

Here at Casa de Campo, we go above and beyond when it comes to helping you unwind with personalized retreats. After all, wellness isn’t one size fits all! Check out these five tips for creating the perfect wellness vacation here.

Tech-Savvy Travel

Travel is getting tech-savvy. In 2017, expect to see more travelers booking their vacations online and using apps to organize their itineraries. As the quality of smartphone cameras improve and new editing apps emerge, you’ll see more travelers posting professional-quality vacation photos to Instagram. And fitness trackers can even help you count your steps and stay healthy on vacation!
