Oh hey there 2017, we are so excited to see you! One of our resolutions for 2017 at MI OLA is inspire you to #GetOutThere — and as always, keep you covered while doing it! With the help of our amazing brand ambassadors, we’ve rounded up the top places for you to #GetOutThere in 2017. Check ’em out below!
Hike through El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico + hop on a puddle jumper to neighboring island Vieques!
Are you dreaming of hiking through a lush rainforest and exploring waterfalls? Yeah, us too. Be sure to check out our #GetOutThere Guide to hiking El Yunque in Puerto Rico! Located about a 45 minute drive from San Juan, the El Yunque hike will take about four hours roundtrip to complete. When you finally reach the top you’ll enjoy the cold air from the mountains to cool you off! And on the way down, you get another refreshing reward: ice cold waterfalls to cool off in! And while you are visiting Puerto Rico, why not hop over to beautiful neighboring island of Vieques to explore its pristine beaches?
Road trip through Southern France and Spain searching for waves!
There’s no better way to enjoy the beautiful beaches of France and Spain than a surf road trip. If you have at least two weeks to explore and love to surf, brand ambassador Verena highly recommends road tripping through this beautiful region of Southern Europe. Not only will you be able to surf different breaks and explore the countryside, you’ll also get to eat and experience new things like gooseneck barnacles! Check out Verena’s Surf Guide to Southern Europe.
Mermaid in swimming holes in Northern Rivers, Australia + surf in Byron Bay
If you have been dreaming of a trip to Australia to explore, 2017 is the year to do it! Australia based brand ambassador Ellen offers a wealth of information to exploring in her home state of New South Wales. Check out some of her favorite activities, like swimming in “wild” swimming holes in Northern Rivers, Australia and surfing Byron Bay.
Hike a 14er or start to hike!
