You’ll find the Las Lajas Sanctuary in a gorge on the border between Colombia and Ecuador. The church rises 45 meters above the river between rocks and waterfalls. The building and its interiors are spellbinding!


Huacachina, Peru

Huacachina is an oasis town in the middle of a vast desert. This lovely place is about five hours away from Lima, Peru’s capital. A tiny town of just 200 people can make you feel cut-off from the world there.


Marble Caves, Chile

The Marble Caves are located on a peninsula at Lake General Carrera, formed by 6,000-plus years of waves washing up against the rocks. The smooth, swirling blues of the cavern walls will make you feel like you’re in paradise.


Flores Island, Portugal

A national park with unique flora and fauna, Flores Island features on the UNESCO world heritage list. It is located in the most western point of the Azores islands near the coast of Portugal.
