Due to the pandemic caused by the Covid-19 virus, it is recommended to maintain social isolation to remedy this crisis as soon as possible. So the ideal is not to go on social trips yet. But for when the pandemic situation improves: check those 10 incredible destinations for you to visit!
- Iguaçu Falls, Brazil/Argentina
Considered one of the 7 natural wonders in the entire world, this South American treasure leaves everybody mesmerized. The Iguaçu Falls is located between two national parks: the National Park of Iguaçu, in Brazil, and the National Park Iguazú, in Argentina. Those parks are also declared as a World Heritage Site and reaffirmed as Exceptional Universal Value.
Both parks offer amazing views of the enormous waterfall, many circuits for trekking lovers, safaris, and even museums. The Argentinian side offers the chance to go through bridges which are excellent photo points. And did I mention that you can also get on the water? Not swimming, but on a boat that gives you a whole different point of view of this majestic waterfall.
- The Cavern Club, England
Every Beatles fan knows the band's history started in the famous city of Liverpool. But not everybody knows the famous pub that started it all. The Cavern Club opened its door in 1957 as a rock n roll club and it was known for being underground and having a peculiar smell that never left the place.
The Cavern Club was where The Beatles started playing as a band, but they were not the only ones. Musicians like Rolling Stones, Queen, and even Elton John were known to play there too. The place is the key to English rock and it's still open till today.
It’s important to be really careful not to go into one of the fake “The Cavern Clubs” (yes, they exist). You can get into the real pub down a big flight of stairs. The place is the same as it always was, making you feel like a time traveler. Bands and cover artists are signing all day long all kinds of songs, but especially The Beatles. While there, It's easy to assume that you went back in time. This place is a must-go-to every rock lover, but also to everybody that wants to feel like they are part of something big.
- Blue Lagoon, Iceland
The Blue Lagoon is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula, in southwest Iceland, and it's probably best known for its milky blue waters, with high temperatures and skin-nourishing properties. The attraction became famous all over the world and has one of the prettiest photo landscapes one could imagine.
The lagoon has its own hotel and spa, which you can choose to stay and enjoy but you can also buy day passes if you are up to a quick visit. When you buy your ticket, you can choose the package you want and end up with some “skincare mud” which you apply while on the water. If you don't end up feeling like a relaxed Elsa, I don't know what can make you feel like that.
- Pão de Açúcar, Brazil
If you are Brazilian, going to Rio de Janeiro should definitely be a priority. The city which once was the country's capital is a symbol of Brazilian identity. Besides the beautiful beaches, gastronomy, and culture, Rio is the place of some of the most amazing landscapes of Brazil.

You can pay the fare and ride from one hill to the other at more than 300 meters from the ground while enjoying the beautiful view.
