Where Do You Go On Holiday?

Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or colleague. You are talking about holidays/ travel. At some point, the other person wants to know where you usually go on holiday and says to you something like: "where do you go on holiday?"

In Spanish, the other person could choose to be less formal and say:
¿Adónde vas de vacaciones?

Alternatively, he/ she could choose to be more formal and say:
¿Adónde va (usted) de vacaciones?

The question is an invitation for you to say where you go on holiday. When you say where you go on holiday, you DO NOT need to be concerned about the level of formality in the other person's question. Your main concern should be about saying what your holiday destination is. Perhaps you want to say that you usually:
  • Go on a type of holiday
  • Go to a general destination (e.g. country);
  • Go to a more specific destination;

Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Voy de vacaciones a la playa (I go on holiday to the beach);
  • Voy de vacaciones al campo (I go on holiday to the countryside);
  • Voy de vacaciones a España (I go on holiday to Spain);
  • Voy de vacaciones a Mallorca (I go on holiday to Majorca);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Adónde vas de vacaciones?
