Cienfuegos, Cuba 

Cuba is rapidly becoming one of the most popular travel destinations in the world, however most people only travel to the capital, Havana, and ignore what many call “The Pearl of the South.” Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, Cienfuegos’ old colonial town center is something to behold, and is a big reason why many believe the city to be the most beautiful destination in Cuba. No other place in the Caribbean boasts a cluster of Neoclassical structures that even comes close in comparison. After taking in the wondrous architecture, experience the beauty of Cienfuegos’ nature by visiting El Nicho Waterfall. It has been described as a naturally occurring water park, and it features cascading waterfalls with pools for swimming at the bottom of them. There are also hiking pathways to explore, as well as small bars and vendors selling delicious food. Cienfuegos is a place not many know about, but all should explore if they get the chance.

Margaret River, Australia

Most people think of seeing Melbourne, Sydney and The Great Barrier Reef when Australia comes to mind, however most outsiders don’t know about all that the town of Margaret River has to offer. The town is located in the South West of Western Australia, and is known to natives for its top quality wine and dining. The region only produces about 3 percent of all wine in Australia, but produces more than a fifth of the continent’s premium wines. With more than 120 world-class wineries available for exploration, visiting the vineyards is a must when staying in Margaret River. The town also features several beautiful beaches and some of the best surfing available in the world, with infamous breaks such as Surfer’s Point and The Cowaramup Bombora. One of marvels of the area happens to be below ground at Lake Cave. The cave features the one of a kind “suspended table”, a natural limestone crystal masterpiece that hangs from the ceiling, just above the cave’s enduring lake. Discover the depths of Australia and avoid the tourist crowds by venturing to this amazing town.
