At Fodor's, we're always on the hunt for where to go next. From travel-worthy events (World Cup in Brazil) and buzzy hotspots (sun and scene in Corsica) to brilliant values (a Greek Isles getaway) and emerging destinations (UNESCO site-hopping in Ethiopia), 2014 is shaping up to be an epic year for travel. These are the top 25 trips we're looking to book right now—and we hope you'll join us!
A vibrant, historic city that's one of South America's newest hotspots.
Why Go Now: A decade ago, travelers tended to stay away from Cartagena, wary of the country's drug trade, but with a stabilized, cleaned-up economy, travelers are flocking to this stunning walled city on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Direct flights from New York, Miami, and Fort Lauderdale make the trip fast and easy. Once there, check out the Palacio de la Inquisicion for insight into the area's history from pre-Colombian days, including instruments of torture used in the Inquisition. For more light-hearted fun, head out to art galleries like NH Galeria (which has work by local and international artists), or check out restaurants serving the freshest seafood, or try salsa dancing till the wee hours.
Insider Tip: There are plenty of sights to see in the Old City: rent bikes for even easier exploring. If beaches are your thing, take a day trip to nearby Islas del Rosario, or if you have a few days to spare, head to Isla Grande off the coast of Panama.
When to Go: December through April is the dry season, with temperatures in the mid 70s to the high 80s. The annual Hay Festival Cartagena will take place January 30-February 2, 2014, bringing together writers and artists from 20 countries. The city's international film festival is set for March 13-19, 2014.
