Villa di Mare in Playa Puerto Nuevo, Puerto Rico
Although Villa di Mare is located in Puerto Rico, it gives off major Greek Mediterranean island vibes. This Airbnb is very spacious, but let’s be serious – we check in here for the private beach access. You can even just lounge by the private pool while soaking up that salty breeze from the Atlantic ocean. For other activities, this rental is located in Vega Baja which is less than five minutes away from restaurants, supermarkets, and one of the top ten beaches in Puerto Rico: Playa Puerto Nuevo.

Colonial House in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
This colonial house is located in the historic center of Santo Domingo and pretty much slays when it comes to checking off every box in Dominican Republic. Historical attractions of the “New World”? Check. Traditional colmado (a small grocery store) that plays music in the evenings? Check. Walking distance to the malecon? Check. You don’t do Dominican Republic without doing Santo Domingo.

Casa Jose Clemente Orozco Coyoacan in Mexico City, Mexico
Tiny House Nature Experience in Mairipora, Brazil
São Paulo is arguably where most of the action is in Brazil, at least for travelers on the hunt for beach parties, live music, good food, and strong drinks. But if you’re looking for a more laidback, care-free mentality, then book this tiny house just 45 minutes from São Paulo. The residence is literally located in the middle of a bunch of trees. The rooms are fitted with large windows, natural light, and hammocks. There’s also a garden, balcony, and fire pit. Added bonus: you’ll be within walking distance to a lake so you can wind down after a long day in the sun.
