Latin America: Top 5 Vacation Ideas (Part 4)

Number Five: Holbox, Mexico. A shallow lake separates an island from the main land, which supports all sorts of wildlife. Flamingos, pelicans and even whale sharks have been spotted in the near vicinity of this destination.

Number Four: Ica Desert, Peru. Fans of pisco, you absolutely must go here! Enjoy a delicious pisco sour in the place where the world’s best pisco is made in this desert landscape straight out of Star Wars.

Number Three: Tayrona, Colombia. Though this lush destination is admittedly very humid, it means that it is teeming with life. There are more than 300 species of birds that live here.

Number Two: Cocora Valley, Colombia. This place is teeming with wax palms, Colombia’s national symbol. This makes sense when you take into account the fact that Cocora Valley is also a wildlife sanctuary.

Number One: Green Lagoon, Bolivia. The wind here causes sediments in the lake to alter its color between a spectrum of turquoise to dark emerald. And the photos will never do this place justice; the pigments are visible from the sky!
