Latin America

A favorite place is as subjective as your favorite ice cream, but this list is here to help get the ball rolling.

5. Baia do Sancho, Brazil

Voted top beach in the world by Tripadvisor two years in a row, Baia do Sancho is a must-see if you’re planning on taking a trip down to Brazil.  Coral reefs line the outer waters of the bay where sea turtles and other sea life commonly seek shelter.  High-points line the beach allowing for breathtaking scenery to be had, and moderate vegetation keeps this beach semi-private.

4. Rio de Janiro, Brazil


A sprawling metropolis meets the southern Atlantic Ocean at Rio de Janeiro.  Rio has about a million and a half things to do on and off the beach that will leave you caving for more.  From beautiful women to shredding surfers, Rio is the place to be.  Take a stroll down the beach and observe Brazilian culture firsthand, or go right across the street and immerse yourself into the hundreds of local shops and eateries.

3. Tayrona National Park, Colombia


More secluded and relaxed than a Rio-style beach, Tayrona National Park is a place to kick back and let nature put your mind at ease.

2. Cancun


Miles of clear water, year-round beautiful weather, and stunning resorts put Cancun at #2 on our list of top Latin American Beaches.

1. Playa Del Carmen, Mexico


Not only does Playa Del Carmen Feature one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but just inside the town features Quinta Avenida, Playa Del Carmen’s main street.  This epicenter for nightlife and dining is what truly puts Del Carmen at the top of our list.
