What’s on your travel bucket list? Antarctic Expeditions? Sailing Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands? What made the cut?? We have compiled the ultimate Top 10 travel bucket list for any willing globetrotter. One could consider themselves lucky to do even one of the trips on this list. Have you done any?
- Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Nestled far away from bustling Guatemala City, Lake Atitlan in the Guatemala Highlands of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range is a majestic place where you can relax and be immersed in your natural surroundings. Consider staying at Casa Palopo, where you’ll have sweeping views of the lake and the volcanoes. Don’t forget to bring home plenty of the beautiful textiles from the local markets.
- Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Take the flight into St. Thomas and then hop on the ferry over to the idyllic island of Tortola. Book a stay through Airbnb with a group of friends, rent a car so you can get around the island with ease, and enjoy sunshine, sparkling blue waters, and forget about the struggles of life until it’s time to check in for your return flight. Truly paradise!
- Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Head to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming for some of the most spectacular natural settings in America. Camping will be your best, most affordable bet, but you had better start booking a campsite now.
- Santiago, Chile
Travelers have often overlooked Chile’s capital city in favor of more popular South American cities like Lima or Cartagena but the city is attracting more world-class chefs than ever, and has more and more design-centric boutiques and breathtaking views of the surrounding Andes.
- Lofoten Islands, Norway
Thanks to budget airlines like Norwegian Air, getting to Norway is more affordable than ever. Make the journey to the Lofoten Islands, north of the Arctic Circle, and stay in a fisherman’s cottage for a few days of majestic landscapes, tasty fresh fish, and more.
- Isla Holbox, Mexico
This under-the-radar island off the Yucatan Peninsula is a must this year. Stay at Casa Las Tortugas (super affordable), and unwind on the beach for a few days of good food, yoga, and sunshine.
- Chefchaouen, Morocco
Make the trek to the majestic Blue City of Morocco, Chefchaouen. Situated in the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen was painted blue by Jewish refugees in the 1930s and has stayed that way ever since. It’s no wonder Instagrammers are flocking to this blue gem.
- Kyoto, Japan
As one of the best-preserved cities in Japan, Kyoto is home to hundreds of Shinto shrines and thousands of Buddhist temples. Spend a few days in Tokyo and then head to Japan’s imperial capital.
- Bocas Del Toro, Panamá
An archipelago made up of nine islands, Bocas Del Toro is a true sanctuary. Full of tropical rain forest, empty beaches, and beautiful coral reefs, this rugged retreat is a great place to escape from it all. Stay at the stylish Sarani Resort, and spend your days eating the fresh local catch and enjoying the area’s natural wonders.
- Jaipur, India
You’ll want to head to the Pink City — widely thought of as one of the most beautiful places in the world — with an empty suitcase and a full wallet. The goods and textiles are all still made by hand. How much is it to check 10 suitcases full of handmade Indian goodies?
