Most people are looking to relax on vacation, but energetic Aries want to explore and get acquainted with the locals. Your ideal vacation spot will have nightlife, delicious local cuisine, and plenty of activities you can't experience anywhere else.

That's why Stardust says a trip to tropical Jamaica is just right. "Aries are very adventurous and fiery, which makes this a perfect spot for them to do some fun outdoor activities." Consider staying in Ocho Rios, so you can climb the famous Dunn's River Falls.

Taurus: Ibiza

Never one to settle for anything less than the best, Taurus wants a beach getaway that's equal parts beautiful and relaxing. When you go on vacation, you're looking to leave all your responsibilities at home; you don't want to lift a finger or worry about any of the details. And you'll spare no expense to ensure you get just this.

"Taurus is a lover of all things luxury, so you can be sure they'll love Ibiza," says Stardust. "They will adore the natural sightseeing opportunities and seaside fine dining options."

Gemini: Bahamas

You might be known for your easygoing vibes, but choosing your perfect vacation spot is tricky. You need a little bit of everything to have a good time. You want to be able to catch some sun by the water and read your favorite book before hitting the town for a night of karaoke and late-night food.

For indecisive Gemini, Stardust recommends the Bahamas.  "Unique like them, this spot has adventures for everyone and has plenty of gorgeous natural backdrops for your photos."

Cancer: Fiji

Cancers are the homebodies of the zodiac. So when you decide to take a trip, seclusion and serenity are the most important factors. You're looking to spend your time away doing nothing but sipping fruity cocktails at a swim-up pool and listening to your audiobook under the afternoon sun.

"Cancers will love being surrounded by the crystal clear waters of Fiji," says Stardust. "Their emotional side will embrace the water and help them embrace calm." Book an all-inclusive resort where you truly don't have to think about anything.

Always the life of the party, Leos want fun, laughs, and all the summer cocktails you can get your hands on. You come alive in the summertime, which means your ideal vacation spot will have plenty of sun, socializing, and nightlife.

"Leos are used to being the star of the show," says Stardust, which is why she recommends Tulum, Mexico for your tropical vacation. "They'll love that their big personalities will be able to unwind in this blissful vacation spot." And once you're well-rested, there are plenty of bars and beach clubs.

Virgo: Bora Bora

Virgos are all about health and wellness. So for you, vacation is a chance to get away from all the noise and find your center. You favor tropical retreats with spas, seaside massages, and delicious, locally-grown food.

"This introverted sign loves a little alone time, which means they'll love the peace and tranquility offered in Bora Bora," says Stardust. Splurge on one of the French Polynesian island's many over-water bungalow resorts, where you can really get away from it all.

Libra: Bali, Indonesia

Libras like to live the high life. You're looking for a vacation spot that's exclusive, aesthetically pleasing, and designed for ultimate relaxation. That's why Stardust says you'll find the "balance, peace, and harmony" you're looking for in Bali.

But the Indonesian island is also considered the artistic capital of the region, so you'll be able to embrace your extroverted side "by exploring and adventuring," Stardust adds. From nature preserves to Hindu temples to rice terraces, there is no shortage of beautiful excursions here.

Scorpio: Maldives

Scorpios might have a reputation for being mysterious, but it's not hard to deduce what you need in a dream vacation. You love a bit of adventure with equal parts alone time. And because you're a water sign, your tropical vacation must have plenty of oceanfront access.

"They will feel most in their element being surrounded by water and unwind on the white sand beaches," says Stardust, suggesting the Maldives as your ideal getaway. You'll have plenty of privacy away from the crowd during the day and an endless list of nighttime activities to enjoy after dark.

Sagittarius: Seychelles

Sagittarius likes to be where the action is, and vacation is no different. Sure, relaxing on the beach is nice for a bit, but you want to travel to parts unknown, befriending like-minded travelers and locals alike, and finding your next adventure.

Stardust says your "cheerful and outgoing side" will love the friendly vibes of Seychelles. It's an ideal spot to bar-hop, "not to mention all the diving and snorkeling along beautiful beaches," Stardust adds. Don't miss visiting the Aldabra Atoll, where you can see the namesake giant tortoises.

Capricorn: Dominican Republic

Capricorns are used to calling the shots in everyday life, so your idea of a vacation is somewhere far away from the hustle and bustle. And while you'll enjoy unwinding at a peaceful island retreat, you'd also do well with a location that encourages you to break out of your routine and let loose.

"The Dominican Republic is Capricorn's ideal destination," says Stardust. "They'll waste no time relaxing on the beach with a cold drink, while they embrace the music, food, and culture." Even better, find an all-inclusive resort where the decision-making is done for you.

You're the curious rebel of the zodiac, Aquarius, which means your ideal vacation spot is somewhere off the beaten path. Crowded tourist traps and over-priced luxury hotels just aren't your vibe. You're looking for a unique experience—like Aruba, a hub of adventure that mixes laidback island vibes with breathtaking views of nature.

"They'll love how easy it is to immerse themselves in the local culture. And their artistic side will love the jade and turquoise oceans and rocky bays," says Stardust.

Pisces: Costa Rica

Pisces are the creatives and mystics of the zodiac. For you, vacation is a chance to get back in touch with your spiritual side and balance out your energy. You like destinations that stay true to the local culture while still offering opportunities to explore new things.

For that perfect mix, Stardust recommends Costa Rica. "The jungle-lined beaches and hot springs will let Pisces' imagination run wild." Spend the day immersing yourself in the peace and quiet of one of the many nature preserves or national parks, and then finish your day with a meal on the waterfront.
