Mexico, Central America, and South America represent incredibly diverse and distinct climates and cultures — a fact illustrated beautifully by the region's best islands.
Every year this magazine make a survey for World’s Best Awards , T+L asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise lines, spas, airlines, and more. Readers rated islands on their natural attractions and beaches, activities and sights, food, friendliness, and overall value.
Vacationers from across the globe flock to the islands south of the U.S. for the extreme adventure sports (think snorkeling with sharks), extraordinary wildlife (penguins! blue-footed boobies! giant tortoises!), pristine stretches of white sand, or simply to relax with a frozen daiquiri in hand.
With 87.41 score Galápagos Islands are the number ONE, For more than a decade, have dominated our World’s Best survey. The volcanic archipelago continues to draw visitors with exotic wildlife unique to the island: "It was like falling into a National Geographic special," said one reader. The archipelago is also known for excellent diving in sparkling blue waters and features white-, black-, and pink-sand beaches. What most sets this destination apart is, undoubtedly, the magical, stuck-in-time feel afforded by the wildlife and untouched beaches.
