Isla Holbox, Mexico

Officially the best-kept secret in Mexico (until now). Forgo the crowded beaches of Puerto Vallarta, the elbow-to-elbow tours of Mayan Ruins in Tulum… find your paradise on a stretch of nearly-private island. A single town that retains an authentic, small-town feel. An untouched nature preserve. 26 miles of pure relaxation, peace, and the beauty of Mexico at it’s best.

Reykjavik, Iceland

The name doesn’t sound like a summer destination, but visiting this natural wonder of the world in the summer months means skipping the extensive lines. Experience the Blue Lagoon the way it was meant to be experienced, a private session between you and nature. Bathe in the purifying waters of volcanic earth, enjoy a facial using thousand-year old clay. And with no one there, there’s nothing between you and complete relaxation.


This coastal African country boasts some of the most beautiful views in the world, and yet it remains a relative secret to jet-setting travelers. The turquoise waters and swaying palms spell out the perfect vacation that blends exposure to new culture and the comforts of luxury. Get lost in the architecture, the nightlife, and the hypnotic ocean. Pack your passport and your sense of adventure.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

When you think of your happy place, do you see a bungalow on stilts being suspended over crystal clear water? You’re in luck. That place is real, and it exists in Bora Bora. Whether you want to relax with a great book or go scuba diving, snorkeling, or swimming: this destination guarantees you a deep dive into luxury, and a trip you’ll remember for a lifetime.


Those who have traveled here call it “the most beautiful place no one’s ever visited.” The waterfalls in Krka National Park will take your breath away, the cities drop off steep cliffs that plummet into royal blue waters, the sunsets are stunning and the people are kind. Croatia has every ingredient for a summer adventure you’ll never forget.
