The Hyatt, The Marriott, The Four Seasons…BORING!. All fine hotels, but after a couple of trips, they all start to look and feel the same. If your idea of a vacation is more than spending the day sunbathing by the hotel pool, you should be looking for variety: something new, exciting and, in the best of circumstances, something eco-friendly! It doesn’t mean you have to head straight for the more rustic options of hammocks or refugios. Enter alternative lodging: if you can imagine a concept, it exists. From underwater hotels, to hotels made entirely of salt or ice, to treehouses and capsule hotels. In almost every country in the world, there are creative, off-beat places to drop your backpack.
