King’s Day is held on April 27 and leads to an all day long, citywide, street party that is family friendly and solo female tested. Keukenhof Gardens over in Lisse, only a bus ride away, showcases its most spectacular blooms the last weeks of April.

Travel to the coastal town of Ajijic, cut off by tropical mountains and dense forests from nearby Guadalajara. Ajijic is a mecca for Canadians and military Americans who come down to retire. As such, boutique hotels, condos and entire estates have been leased or rented for English-speaking visitors. You meander the boardwalk and watch boats float past. Spend some time exploring the mountain trails meandering between Catholic shrines. When you are ready to eat sample some freshly caught seafood at one of the beachside restaurants. Grab a green michelada at one of the local bars and go dancing in the main square in town.

The hike only takes about four hours total and is relatively easy. Your payoff! Out of this world views of Monte Fitz Roy and surrounding peaks leave you feeling like you’ve left the earth altogether.
