El CosmicoMarfa, USA

Break the shackles of modern civilisation and return to a nomadic state of bliss beneath the wide, open Texas sky at this off-beat camping site. Located in the high plains desert just outside of arts hub Marfa, El Cosmico is the perfect place to unplug, recharge, do something amazing or nothing at all.

The Ritz this ain’t – choose between a gorgeous vintage trailer, magnificent Mongolian yurt, Sioux-style teepee or safari tent, each decked out in style.

Begin your day at the outdoor bath house, share a meal with your fellow nomads at the alfresco communal kitchen, settle in for an afternoon snooze in the hammock grove, and end your evening by soaking in a wood-fired hot tub under a clear, starry sky.

If you feel the cold, remember that, during winter, temperatures can fall below freezing. Bring lots of clothes (and extra blankets if you want to camp or stay in a teepee) and be prepared to go without a shower – the pipes in the bathrooms freeze up.
