If you’re at your happiest with your heart racing and head buzzing, look no further! We’ve hand-picked 5 incredible locations around the world where you’re guaranteed to get that adrenaline hit! On sea or land, up mountains or volcanoes, this list will take you through the highs and lows (literally) of the best TEFL destinations around the world for adrenaline junkies! Ready, set, go…
- Macau, Hong Kong
In at number 1 is Hong Kong’s answer to Las Vagas – and it’s a fascinating place to TEFL. After work if you’re wanting to swap blackboards for something a little crazier, Macau is the place. For starters, you can tie a giant rubber band around your feet and plunge off the edge of the 764-foot tall Macau Tower – officially the world’s highest bungee jump. If you prefer something a little more down-to-earth, you can always try your luck at one of the city’s famous casinos – good luck!
2. Leon, Nicaragua
If balancing on a piece of wood and zooming down the side of an active volcano sounds like your idea of fun, then we definitely recommend Leon in Nicaragua. And once you’ve got the hang of staying upright on boards, you can try out your shiny skills on the nearby ocean surf too. Even better, Nicaragua is really starting to make a real name for itself as a top TEFL destination. Perfect!
3. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio is always buzzing – from the sizzling samba clubs and street football to baking beaches. But if you really want your adrenaline fix, strap yourself to a kite (ok, hang glider is probably the official term) and take in the view from up high!
4. Futaleufu, Chile
Sparkling turquoise waters, snowy mountains and one of the greatest white-water rafting experiences in the world. If you’re an adrenaline-junkie then you will love Futaleufu. It’s not all about this river either. Chile offers thousands of miles of amazing outdoor adventure – and it’s is a super cool place to TEFL!
5. Kathmandu, Nepal
We love Kathmandu – it’s a popular place to TEFL and it’s the gateway to Mount Everest. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, the challenge of climbing up the world’s highest mountain (or at least trekking to base camp) is hard to beat! But even this experience could be topped if you skydived over those peaks instead. Possibly the ultimate adrenaline rush!
