Portugal – Benagil Beach Sea Cave
Portugal is one of those places so rich in history that you need to make the time to visit it at some point in your life. You can explore the landscape, absorb its rich culture, and possibly even find a hidden gem found on the southern tip of Portugal that boasts of magnificent views. Like most visitors, you might find yourself hanging out at the ever popular beaches of Algarve in the town of Benagil. It's a quaint, beautifully small fishing village that’s so much more than just its spectacular beaches. Algarve is where you will discover a phenomenal natural wonder of the world. It's a large cavern that's naturally formed and has an opening on top to let just enough warm sunshine in to light it up. You can get to this sea cave by boat, but the real treasure if found by visiting the site via kayak, canoe, or paddleboard. It's guaranteed to take your breath away - a must visit.
Mexico – Ik-Kil Cenote, Yucatan
Ik-Kil Cenote is a diver's paradise with unbelievable scenery and cliffs that are breathtaking. Here, you can also enjoy a relaxing swim with an exhilarating view of the jungle in the background. There’s an opening to this naturally enclosed well about 90 feet up from the crystal clear water below. Oh, and you don’t have to worry too much about hitting the bottom on a dive because there's about 130 feet of space to work with. What makes this destination fantabulously beautiful are the natural vines running down from the top and the magical way the sunbeams iridescently shoot through. This ancient Mayan ritual site can be exciting and gutsy, or relaxing and tranquil; it all depends on how you want to experience it. Bottom line is, you’ve just got to dive into this one.
Wyoming – Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park
Hands down, one of the most incredible sights in the US is the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park. It’s got the bragging rights as the largest hot spring in the United States and the 3rd largest worldwide. It measures a massive 160 feet deep and 370 feet in diameter. The color of the water is spectacular - the combination of blues, yellows, greens, and oranges are magical. In the summer months, the colors are typically red, yellow, and orange, but in the winter months you’ll see more greens. Nothing less than spectacular is what you'll get with this amazing wonder of the world.
