If you’ve been having a hard time living in the moment lately, it might be time for you to disconnect from your daily life and take some time to reconnect with nature. This includes saying goodbye to your cell phone, refraining from the use of Wi-Fi, and staying away from any screens. Disconnecting might sound difficult, but if you find the perfect vacation spot to do it in, it should be a breeze.
- St. Lucia
Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet resorts in St. Lucia are the perfect place to detox from all technology. Neither location has access to radios, TVs, and even phones so you’ll be forced to live in the present. If you grow tired of relaxing in your room, you can always explore the Anse Chastanet Reef, which has over 150 types of fish living nearby.
- The Guatemalan Jungle
Las Lagunas Boutique Hotel is located in the Guatemalan Jungle near the Tikal, Uaxactún and Yaxhá ruins. This remote resort has just 19 bungalows meaning you won’t have to worry about dealing with rowdy neighbors. There are plenty of things to do here to distract you from your phone and laptop including taking an ATV tour through the jungle, visiting with spider monkeys, and kayaking through a beautiful lagoon.
If you’re visiting the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, you may be privy to experience their Digital Detox option, which encourages guests to leave their cell phones behind at the front desk and instead explore the island sans phone. The best part about staying here is that you’ll still be able to snap memorable pictures of your vacation thanks to the disposable camera you’re given by the hotel in exchange for your phone.
Guests are encouraged to leave their phones with the front desk and are rewarded with points the longer they go without asking for their phones back. Thanks to the beautiful sandy beaches, pools and top of the line restaurants, you won’t miss your phone one bit.
