Number Five: Monteverde Cloud Forest, Costa Rica. This place’s impressive biodiversity can be attributed to the fact that 90% of the forest is virgin and untouched. This would be a great spot for inquisitive kids and explorers alike.

Number Three: Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina. Prepare to meld your mind when you see these pictures. Tourists come here during the summer to watch giant sections of the glacier break off. Interestingly, the glacier is actually growing, and it is one of only three in the world to be doing so.
