As we go into the weekend, you might be wondering where you can go. Or….you might be planning your next vacation later on down the line. Here is a list of location ideas that we thought would be useful, even if you didn’t break up! ~DHSI
There’s no way around it — getting dumped stinks. But the silver lining is that it’s a great excuse to get away for a few days. We scoured the globe and found the best places to get over your good-for-nothing ex. By the time you get home, you’ll have forgotten their name.
Tensing Pen, Negril, Jamaica
When your ex broke the news, did you feel the urge to jump? Well, gone are the days of “lover’s leaps” (he/she is sooo not worth it) and here are the days of low-bridge-jumping — an exhilarating rush that’s a little like falling in love with someone new. Set in the cliffs of Negril’s West End, Tensing Pen faces the ocean but doesn’t have a traditional sandy beach. Instead, high, rocky cliffs descend to the pure blue water below. Guests can climb down the cliffs and swim from a handful of ladders that have been built into the cliffs, but the general consensus is that you can’t finish your stay without jumping from the long, skinny bridge about 20 feet or so above the water. Doesn’t that sound refreshing? And it doesn’t hurt to be on a sunny island while you’re getting over your ex who’s stuck at home, filled with regret.
Casa Velas Hotel Boutique, Marina Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
The 80-room adults-only Casa Velas Hotel is perfectly situated amid quiet luxury in the small neighborhood of Marina Vallarta, which has a Palm Springs-meets-Beverly Hills vibe. With a gated entry, a friendly, (mostly) bilingual staff, and gorgeous rooms that more than meet the challenge posed by the surrounding posh ambiance, Casa Velas is a great pick for those heading to Splitsville. The best part? The hotel sometimes offers a Divorcee Package which includes accommodations in the Presidential Suite for you and your closest (single) friends, a spa treatment, a night out on the town, a farewell cocktail party (complete with a mini-coffin for your wedding ring), and a consultation with a jewelry designer to create the perfect post-marriage setting for that gorgeous engagement-ring rock. Hey, maybe you did get something out of that marriage after all!
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada
If your way of getting over someone is moving onto the next, you’re going to want to head to Vegas. And no hotel does Vegas parties better than the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Aside from the notorious pool parties in the summer, the hotel is home to Vanity (just one of your ex’s many flaws), one of the hottest nightclubs in Sin City. The 14,000-square-foot nightclub features world-renowned DJs spinning until 4 a.m. for an uber-attractive crowd; bouncers keep an infamously tight velvet rope, so they practically do all of the work for you! And as they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Unless, of course, you want to bring your dance-floor-makeout-partner-turned-significant-other home just to show your ex how forgettable they really are.
Fontainebleau Resort Miami Beach, Miami Beach, Florida
After a breakup, it’s time for some R&R. One of our favorite spas is the Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau Resort in Miami. The spa sits between the pool and the beach and looks like a shiny sapphire dropped from the sky. At 40,000 square feet, that’s a pretty big rock. A $35 spa pass gets you into the locker rooms, Jacuzzis, cold pool, steam room, and sauna, along with regular access to the gym. The pool, saunas, and steam rooms aren’t crammed into a corner, like they are at so many other spas, but are instead gracefully laid out in the large, trendy subterranean lair. Special treatments like massages are extra, of course, but with 30 treatment rooms, there’s no waiting in line.

Let’s continue to shine, Everyone!
