Star-Worthy Glamping Activities

By Jackie Dreyer

This spring, celebrities have been fiercely craving summer weather, and their choices in vacation spots—the more sun and sand and the closer to the water the better—clearly reflect that. From Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen to Rihanna, these stars are filling their time off with the same type of outdoor adventures as our glampers. Hawaii, Mexico, and Costa Rica are celebs’ top picks, and we’re here to show you how to have an active and exciting glamping vacation, filled with all the same activities as your favorite big names.

April was the month for sunny getaways to Mexico, at least for Selena Gomez and friends, as well as Zach Efron and his girlfriend, Sami Miro. Gomez found herself alternating between boogie boarding and floating in a blow-up tube, while Efron took it up a notch and found himself exploring Mexico on an all-terrain vehicle (ATV).

Style your Mexican vacation after the stars with a glamping trip to a seaside casita, a luxurious hut with an ocean view, or a tree house-esque bungalow, where you’ll get to enjoy Gomez and Efron’s preferred activities and then some—including snorkeling tours, parasailing, and sea kayaking.

Rihanna, Beyonce and Jay-Z, and Taylor Swift all said “Aloha!” to Hawaii in recent months, taking a welcome break from their respective, hectic music careers. From a luxury yacht, Rihanna found herself on a fishing excursion in Hawaiian waters, stopping to pose with presumably the largest catch of the day, later to be dinner.

Meanwhile, Beyonce and Jay-Z were celebrating their seventh wedding anniversary in mid-April, alternating between tranquil poolside time and cycling and hiking around the Big Island, the largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Taylor Swift found herself in Maui at the end of January with friends and fellow musicians, Este, Danielle and Alana Haim, of the group, Haim, which included plenty of tropical rainforest hiking and frolicking in the ocean.

For a thrilling glamping experience with many outdoor activity options, stay tucked away from it all in a secluded tree house on the Island of Hawaii, find inner peace at a luxury eco-lodge that doubles as a yoga and wellness center, or head down to the beach every day for every type of water sport imaginable from a unique yurt.

An adventurous, activity-filled luxury trip is also perfect for active families, like that of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, who chose to make Costa Rica their relaxation destination in March. Brady took his boogie boarding to a whole new level, catching some serious waves, while later on, the whole family went sunset horseback riding along the beach.

Costa Rica is also wonderful for surfing, zip-lining, jungle hiking, or even an oceanfront yoga retreat. You can even one up Brady and Bundchen by staying in a luxury tree house in the middle of a rainforest in Puerto Viejo de Limon.
