The Top Five Destinations To Visit In 2023
Let’s face it, travel hasn’t exactly been at the top of anyone’s list for the last couple of years. Between travel restrictions, last minute cancelations, the difficulties renewing passports and more, many of us have been choosing to stay at home instead of hopping on a flight to a foreign country. As 2022 moved forward however things began to change, and suddenly the world was open once more. 2023 might just be known as the year of travel, and if you are still searching for that right destination here are some of the more popular options.
Dominica: If you are looking to unwind, you might want to give the Nature Island a try. Lonely Planet has named Dominica (not to be confused with the Dominican Republic) as one of their top destinations for 2023. This Caribbean island has been seeing several luxury resorts open in the last few years, and travelers love it for its rainforests, volcanoes, hot springs, and more. Eco-lovers will enjoy the amazing hiking trails and diving opportunities, while others will enjoy that the culture of the island is far more preserved than other commercial Caribbean locales.
