Jordan Armstrong, Reporter

Around the world, many countries and regions have beautiful sceneries and land marks, from tropical islands, deserts, jungles, and mountains, there seems to be almost endless environments to go sightseeing.

Here are the most exotic places to go visit around the globe, the rank is in no particular order.

Maui, Hawaii – golden crescent beaches that span more than 120 miles, there are attractions everywhere you turn in Hawaii. Maui, known as “the Valley Isle”, is a favorite for its misty peaks, gorgeous sunsets and bamboo forests.

Puerto Rico – With a tropical climate, secluded palm-fringed beaches and topography as varied as a patchwork quilt, Puerto Rico is arguably the most exotic island in the Caribbean. Especially with its abundance of beaches filled with golden sands.

Fuerteventura, Canary Islands –  Fuerteventura might just be the most interesting island in the Canaries, thanks to its deserted beaches, crystal-clear water and hippy vibe. Steady trade winds make it prime territory for watersports, or if you’re looking for an all-over tan,

Columbia – Azure water, swaying hammocks and hidden beaches can all be found in Colombia – a country that until recently has escaped the tourist trail. Hike through Tayrona National Park, an eco-traveler’s dream destination – it’s the perfect place to pretend you live in a beach hut, feast on exotic fruits and explore impossibly beautiful lagoons.

French Polynesia – French Polynesia is a place where emerald lagoons sparkle and the exotic scents of vanilla, coconuts and Tiare Tahiti flowers fill the air. Its beaches are whiter-than-white, it’s sprinkled with mystical caves and Mount Te’urafa’atiu offers breathtaking views.

Yucatan, Mexico – It is located in the southeast corner of Mexico which separates the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea.  You van cool off in unique limestone cenotes and swim with whale sharks off Isla Holbox. The Mesoamerican reef – the world’s second longest – boasts an abundance of marine life.
