1. Ethiopia

“This East African nation is emerging as a destination for travelers in search of a truly unspoiled place on the verge of a tourism discovery,” says Indagare Trip Designer Janine Yu. Located in the Great Rift Valley, Ethiopia is stepping on to the world’s stage as a crucible of ancient culture, where travelers have the opportunity to experience the intersection of Christianity, Judaism and Islam through unparalleled cultural immersion. The country is home to rock-hewn churches built into incredible landscapes, rare 4th- and 5th-century antiquities and tribal villages that have lived the same way for centuries. In the last two years, new lodges (such as Limalimo Lodge and Lale’s Camp) have opened and flight connections are being added to previously out-of-reach locations like the Omo Valley.

2. Los Cabos, Mexico

This longtime weekend escape for Los Angelenos is famous for its fleet of luxury resorts, with dozens of five-star properties, including the new Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort Los Cabos, and Montage Los Cabos. But, over the next two years, Los Cabos will welcome new properties, including Nobu Hotel and 1 Hotel, that will upgrade its offerings even further. Perhaps the two most exciting additions are the Four Seasons Costa Palmas, which opens in late 2019 and welcomed Gwyneth Paltrow and her friends for a pre-wedding party last summer, and Amanvari, set to debut in 2020. These buzzed-about openings only up the ante on an already established luxury destination.
