MARIETAS ISLANDS, MÉXICO

bucket8

This secluded paradise just a few miles off the pacific coats of Mexico is just to die for. The uniqueness and beauty of this place may have a shocking past. It’s rumored that in early 1900’s this Islands were used to practice bomb targeting, which along with the underwater volcano eruptions created the picturesque scenery of the Islands.

Marietas is home and destination of a vast variety of stunning wildlife, making it a UNESCO MAB Biosphere Reserve. I can’t wait to see the humpback whales and to visit the La Playa de Amor (The Hidden Beach).

ALGARVE, PORTUGAL

bucket3

Way down South to the bottom of Portugal lays the region Algarve. This place is beautiful beach central and has it all. Gorgeous Beach caves, grottos and towering multiform rock formations adorn the landscape. If you haven’t figure it out yet, a common denominator for me is water. Algarve is also bathed by a wonderful warm blue mass of water. But there’s more to Algarve than just its beaches. There is also a pretty decent nightlife scene for those seeking a little more entertainment than sun worshiping. As if!

MALDIVES

bucket2

Is there any top ten-destination Bucket list that doesn’t include the Maldives? I highly doubt it. This is just a favorite place for everybody, specially for those like me who can’t get enough crystal clear blue water, fine white sand and warm sun over their heads. And there’s something else… you can literally go to swim in a Sea of Stars!

LEWA WILDLIFE CONSERVATORY, KENYA

bucket1I want to go on a safari to observe wild big cats. Since I was a little girl I’ve been fantasizing to see them running wild in the African savannah, especially Cheetahs since they are my favorite animals. This is a tough mission because cheetahs are known to be very elusive which makes it a big challenge. I just want to see them so bad, and it seems like Lewa Wildlife Conservatory in Kenya is one of those places where I might have the chance… not guaranteed.. but I’ll take it  !! Yay !

BERMUDA

bucket6

There’s no triangle scary story enough to stop me from visiting Bermuda. I’ve been here once and it is one of the most beautiful Islands in this world. Besides the amazing landscape and adorable pastel colored houses the people there are some of the nicest I have met. You’re going to have to excuse me because I’m going to go off on the color of the water again because it is unbelievable! If you ever visit Bermuda make sure you visit Elbow Beach, It has the most beautiful pink sanded beach, yes… you read it right … PINK!!!!

PLAYA DE LAS CATEDRALES, SPAIN

bucket-10

This is a new one for me! I was searching for rare beaches on the Internet and this one just pop out! It blew my mind. Its name is given due to its unusual geology, which resembles the soaring arches of Gothic cathedrals. This is really something to see!!

 

SANTORINI, GREECE

Architecture of Oia town on Santorini

These Greek Islands seem taken out off a fairytale. I honestly don’t know much about them but they just so freaking cute and I really want to go walk their pretty little streets and look white and colorful buildings and enjoy the sunset! No doubt a must go !

 

BALI, INDONESIA

bucket9

This Indonesian Island is definitely a must go destination for beach lovers!

I have been dreaming of visiting to Bali and I only want to wake up to go book my flight !

CAÑO CRISTALES, COLOMBIA

bucket5

Ironically, being Colombian I have never been to one of my top ten dreamed destinations. This place is just magic and it is literally the most beautiful river of the world. Caño Cristales is also known as the Seven Color River. True to its name, its vibrant colors come from the colored algae that populate the water. Even getting there is an adventure. It’s a remote but safe part of my home country. Here’s the best part, it’s really affordable to get there.

THAILAND

bucket4

Elephants… ✓; Amazing beaches… ✓, groovy temples… ✓, sweetest people in the world… ✓, and my favorite food of all kind … ✓ Thailand is my dreamland vacation!

I had a hard time picking just ten favorite destinations, I’m passioned traveler and there are so many other places where I absolutely  have to go in my lifetime.

I’d be happy to read what you think about them and even more happy for you to tell me about amazing destinations that I might not know  about!

    These look like beautiful and fantastic places. For a more northern flavor, I’d like to see the fjords in Norway someday. And also the old castles in Europe.

    Hey Rosana, I like your bucket list of destinations. I have traveled a bit and will definitely add some your list to my list. The southern Portugal beach looks fantastic, I also am not fearful of taking a Bermuda trip. Although, I want to golf when I get there. Let me turn you on to a few places I have been. Iceland was beautiful with huge waterfalls, geysers, thermal pools, glaciers. They also have a black sand beach. Costa Rica was visually stimulating also, with lots of diverse animal life to observe. Lastly I want to go, to the Tahiti islands and to Madeira island. Remember to keep traveling, Paul
