Do you feel like going on a unique adventure? Take a look at these 50 natural wonders in Latin America none of your friends has visited yet.

Have you ever wondered how come some of your friends spend most of their time traveling while still keeping up with school or work (not mention without spending all their money while doing so)? Perhaps you're one of them, and if so, please give us your secret! But let's go back. Whenever I see pictures on Instagram of them posing on incredible and iconic spots, I feel a bit jealous and picture myself traveling the world while also documenting it on my own profile.


The truth is that most of us have to plan ahead our vacations and think wisely where do we want to spend those precious days. Of course, that doesn’t have to be a negative thing, because this allows you to explore many corners of the world via the Internet to make a wise and informed decision. If you’re actually looking for great and unique places, let me tell you that Latin America can be the best option for you. Encompassing from the northern Mexican border to the last point of the continent, in southern Argentina and Chile, Latin America is as wide as diverse, giving you thousands of options to capture those special moments with breathtaking landscapes. Here you have a list of 50 natural wonders you can find in this vast region to get inspired:


Laguna Colorada (Red Lagoon), Bolivia


Hierve el Agua, Mexico


Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, Brazil


Sechura Desert, Perú


Sand Dunes of Barahona, Dominican Republic


Bioluminescent Bay, Vieques, Puerto Rico


Firefly Forests in Tlaxcala, Mexico


Marble Caves, Chile


Poás Volcano, Costa Rica


Caño Cristales River, Colombia


Considered the most beautiful river in the world, Caño Cristales in Colombia is also known as the “River of Five Colors” or “Liquid Rainbow” for the colors it gets in the second half of the year. This effect is produced by the plants on the bottom of the river known as Macarenia Clavigera. Can you picture yourself posing in this natural psychedelic wonder?


Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, Mexico


Iguazu Falls, Argentina / Brazil


Salkantay, Peru


Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia


Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina


Lunarejo Valley, Uruguay


Rosario Sanctuary, Mexico


Darien National Park, Panama


Kaieteur Falls, Guyana


Río Celeste, Costa Rica


Inside the Tenorio Volcano National Park in Costa Rica, the Celeste river is one-of-a-kind due to the turquoise hue of its waters. That's the reason why it’s also called the “Sky Blue River.” This natural color is produced by mixing the waters of two colorless rivers that, once in contact with the Celeste River, acquire a huge concentration of luminescent particles that create this unique color.


Damajagua, Dominican Republic


Macaya Cloud Forest, Haiti


Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountain), Peru


The Cave of the Crystals, Naica, Mexico


Torres del Paine, Chile


The Pantanal, Brazil


Mount Roraima, Venezuela


Cave of Wonders, Dominican Republic


Semuc Champey, Guatemala


Cenotes, Mexico


Located in the Southeastern region of Yucatan in Mexico, these cenotes are natural underwater caves. Unique in their flora and fauna, these were considered sacred spaces by the Mayas. Their name, which actually comes from their language, means abyss, and this is because they have an immense depth. This is definitely a unique experience in these sacred and magical natural wonders.


Cuicocha Lake, Ecuador


Topes de Collantes, Cuba


Los Haitises National Park, Dominican Republic


Coatepeque Caldera, El Salvador


Bellony Cave, Haiti


Kalki Beach, Curacao


Laguna 69, Peru


Barrier Reef, Belize


Cocos Island National Park, Costa Rica


Cayos Cochinos, Honduras


These are a set of two islands in the northern region of Honduras. Cayos Cochinos has become one of the top eco-touristic destinations not only due to the unique transparency of the water but also because of the coral reef that surrounds it. This one belongs to the Great Meso-American Barrier Reef, the world’s second largest coral reef system.


Bocas Del Toro, Panamá


Saltos del Monday, Paraguay


Basaltic Prisms, Mexico


Quebrada de los Cuervos, Uruguay


Ischigualasto, Argentina


Isla Ometepe (Ojo de Agua), Nicaragua
