Forget about cleaning. Springtime in March is the perfect time of year to pack your bags and go on a much-deserved getaway.
Aside from saving yourself from getting rid of those cobwebs, shoulder seasons such as spring often give you the chance to enjoy high-season weather with smaller crowds.
Listed below are some of the best places to travel in March and have an unforgettable trip like no other!
Chile is an impossibly thin and long slither in South America where you can see a breathtakingly diverse selection of natural scenery. Torres del Paine National Park’s icy blue glaciers and the Atacama Desert’s red plains that look like they came from Mars are just some of the many attractions that await you here.
The country is also home to Santiago, a cosmopolitan hub with an up-and-coming food scene, as well as Valparaiso, with its colorful street art displays and association with the poet Pablo Neruda, a Nobel Prize winner.
The 7th of March is the Hindu festival of Holi. It is the time when adherents commemorate the triumph of good over evil. It is also a great opportunity to unleash the inner child in you.
The festival is marked by the tradition where participants throw brightly colored water or powder over each other, similar to a rainbow shower, earning it the nickname “Festival of Colors.”
Jaipur is the best place where you can experience it firsthand, which is also an interesting backdrop in itself. Dubbed the Pink City, Jaipur is where you can see several major sights, such as the Amrapali Museum and Hawa Mahal Palace.
There are a lot of reasons to visit Marrakech in March. Daytime temperatures linger at a manageable 72 degrees Fahrenheit or 22 degrees Celsius, which is ideal for exploring the city on foot. Stroll along the tantalizing maze of alleyways in the ancient medina walls and Jemaa el-Fna, the massive public square at the center.
Get lost in one of the best souks in the world and soak up the ambiance of street food stalls after the sun sets.
Riviera Maya, Mexico
The shadow form of the snake Kukulkan can be seen by visitors to Chichén Itzá, the Mayan ruins shrouded in myth. These rare occurrences happen only on the fall and spring equinoxes, which are September 23 and March 20, respectively.
These are the times when the centuries-old phenomenon of the legend’s feathered snake deity shows up on the steps. It gradually descends while the sun sets to eventually connect with the stone serpent head sitting at the base of the grand staircase, which has a step dedicated to each day of the year.
The heavenly Bermuda island is another perfect destination for a March getaway with its low chance of rain, lots of sunshine, and blue skies.
Spend your day soaking up the sun on a pink sand beach, exploring the coastline on a yacht or boat, or going snorkeling or scuba diving to see the diverse marine life up close and personal.
