Ready for a holiday but don’t know where to go?  Here are our top 4 dream holiday locations that are trending and why they are gaining popularity.

1. Marrakesh

From the moment you arrive in Marrakesh, you’ll get a distinct feeling that you’ve left something behind – tooth floss, a hairdryer maybe?  You check and have both, what you’re missing is any sense of direction or predictability. Riad palace after riad palace (many of which now provide the city’s accommodation), market after market, bargain scouring tourist after bargain scouring tourist.
Relax in the sun at your riad, walk the action packed souk (market place) in search of babouches and Moroccan carpets, visit the modern boutiques and galleries or mountain bike ride through the desert.  At the end of the day there’s always dinner and drinks to be had in the old city of Ville Nouvelle.  Marrakesh is majestic and not to be missed.
2. Cuba

Cuban holidays are about to explode in popularity so before it gets a Disney tourism makeover, get yourself over there!  Soak up the fading colonial beauty and enjoy an idyllic beach break.  Visit Old Havana, if you’re a literary fan, see Ernest Hemingway’s home.  Cuba has the history, the food and the beauty – we’re booking our trip ASAP!

3. Iceland

Icelandic holidays have been growing in popularity for a few years and we’re not surprised.  Volcanoes, glaciers and hot springs plus Reykjavik is a perfect place to party on those long summer nights (the sun is visible for a full 24 hours around the summer solstice!)  Do we need to go on?

4. Nicaragua

Nicaragua is the new must see in Central America.  Set between the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea, Nicaragua is full of stunning beaches, a terrain of lakes, volcanos and Spanish colonial architecture.  It’s also a great place for people looking for an adrenalin rush.  Nicaragua’s diverse geography is perfect for underwater cave diving, surfing down volcanoes or canoeing through alligator-infested wetlands.
