After two years of lockdowns and mandates – Proud American Travelers are looking to escape – and simply relax.
And what better way to melt away years of stress than a peaceful trip to the most tranquil places in the world.
So if you’re looking to unwind and melt the stress off your body – consider booking your next vacation at one of these serene spots.
Rio Celeste Falls, Costa Rica
There’s something about the sound of rushing water that just soothes the soul.
Contrast that to the backdrop of a tropical forest and you’ve got the perfect opportunity to photograph one of the most stunning places in all of Central America.
Located in Tenorio Volcano National Park, the 98ft majestic Rio Celeste Falls flows into piercing blue water so distinct, local legends boast that God “washed his paintbrush” in its waters after He finished painting the sky.
Costa Rica Experts reported:
“Local legend has it that after God was finished painting the sky, he washed his paintbrushes in the river turning in the brilliant blue that fascinates us today…
The powerful Rio Celest Waterfall plunges 98 feet into a pool of bright blue water surrounded by dense tropical forest. The contrast is as striking in person as it is in photos – a true diamond in the rough.”

Conrad Maldives, Rangali Island Maldives
If you prefer white sandy beaches and luxurious spas – you’ve got to check out Conrad Maldives.
Spread across two islands, Conrad Maldives is the ultimate island paradise playground.
Here you can do everything from underwater snorkeling and exploring, or if you’d prefer to stay dry but still get up close with aquatic life, you can head over to Ithaa – a restaurant which is actually underwater!
You can satisfy your palate by dining in a luxurious undersea restaurant – and you’ll stay dry while marine life swims above and all around you.
There’s a reason the New York Daily News called Ithaa “the most beautiful restaurant in the world.”
And of course – Conrad’s Spa on Maldives Rangali Island offers every type of body massage you can think of – from thai herbal compresses to hot stones and even one for pregnant mamas.
You can also have a private couples’ massage – and a private deluxe heat therapy suite.
Indulge yourself and feel the stress melt off your body as you experience the peaceful pace of island life.
