An International Guide to Sporting Vacation Destinations

A relaxing break doesn't have to mean a sedentary week spent in a lounge chair. From the Philippines to southern Spain, some of the most exotic and luxurious destinations in the world offer state-of-the-art sporting facilities for fans of scuba-diving, kite-surfing, rock-climbing, and other active escapes. Here, the health experts at the Q Blog by Equinox profile six active holidays that will take your breath away—for more reasons than one.

Argentina: Horseback Ride

Where to Play: The mountains of Cordoba, Argentina, where the history of gauchos and horses is nearly as old as the landscape itself.

Where to Stay: The top notch equine facilities at luxury ranch El Colibri Estancia de Charme offer meandering rides through the storybook countryside as well as an on-site polo club for a chance to play the game of kings with the assistance of local professionals. Wine, Argentine barbecue, and thoroughly elegant accommodations await you after a day in the saddle.

The Draw: According to the book 1000 Places to See Before You Die, El Colibri, "make[s] you feel like a protagonist in a Ralph Lauren ad," and who doesn't want that?
