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 regardless, just to explore and absorb the rich culture. That aside, there is a hidden secret located on the southern tip of Portugal that boasts magnificent. Most visitors hang out at the ever-popular beaches of Algarve in the town of Benagil. A quaint, beautiful small fishing village that’s so much more than just spectacular beaches. Algarve is where you are going to discover a phenomenal natural wonder of the world. A large cavern naturally formed in the formation of a huge cave with an opening on top to let the warm sunshine in just enough to light it up. You can get to this sea cave by boat, but the real treasure is visiting by kayak, canoe, or paddleboard. Guaranteed to take your breath away. A must visit.

Mexico – Ik-Kil Cenote, Yucatan

Ik-Kil Cenote is a diving paradise with unbelievable scenery and cliff diving that wows. Here you can also enjoy a relaxing swim with a breathtaking view of the jungle in the backdrop. There’s an opening to this naturally enclosed well about 90 feet up from the crystal clear water below. And you don’t have to worry too much about safety because this diving pool drops down about 130 feet. So you can through your hat to the wind and dive deep. 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, depending on how you decide to experience it. You’ve got to dive into this one.

Wyoming – Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park

Hands down one of the most awesome 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. With a massive size of 160 feet deep and 250 by 300 feet in capacity. The color of the water is spectacular. The blues, yellows, greens, and oranges marry with magic. Interestingly, in the summer months the colors are typically red, yellow, and orange, in the winter you’ll see more greens. Nothing less than spectacular is what you get with this wondrous wonder of the world.
