Considered one of the more recent seven wonders of the world, a Machu Picchu excursion is a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage site in Peru with more than 60 archaeological monuments.
The most important historical monument is the Inca City of Machu Picchu, built somewhere around 1450 AD. The Incans abandoned the site later in the 16th century, but it remained a place often visited, and people even lived in it occasionally. Professor Hiram Bingham visited the site in 1911 and was immediately impressed with its majestic beauty. He brought a team back the following year and began research and excavations to learn more about this mysterious site.
This trek is for the fit and adventurous soul who wants to journey the Inca Trail and visit breathtaking ruins and scenery. There are even llamas that love being in photos with you for a banana. None of your friends will have pictures like this.

Mountain climbing is another fun activity for couples who love the outdoors and a challenging adventure. There are several locations around the world that can go on your bucket list, but one of the most popular is Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.
This mountain is excellent for amateurs, and you’ll have a professional guide while climbing the mountain. There aren’t as many risks for Kilimanjaro as those on other mountains—i.e., avalanches. Made up of three extinct volcanoes, this mountain has a variety of hiking trails that lead you close to the 6,000-meter summit.
The weather is best in September, with temperatures around 71 degrees, and it’s one of the driest months in this area. It’s an excellent hiking adventure for people of all experience levels, offering breathtaking scenery and animals such as monkeys, giraffes, and warthogs.
Just make sure that you research the right gear you’ll need for this journey, such as durable water canteens, shelf-stable food, clothes, and more.
Scuba diving with your significant other is another fun adventure for your bucket list. There are many great places all over the world, and one of the most popular is the Great Blue Hole in Belize.
Another UNESCO World Heritage site, the Great Blue Hole, originated as a limestone cave that began forming 150,000 years ago. Gradually the water levels rose at the end of the glacial period. The caves flooded as the roof collapsed, forming this dark-blue hole. It was made popular by famous French explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
The scenery is gorgeous as you swim over the warm, brightly colored reef and into the cool blue hole. The water shimmers as divers transition from saltwater into freshwater at approximately 15 meters deep. At about 25 meters deep, you can explore ancient stalagmites and stalactites.
You’ll get to swim with giant tuna in this brilliant underwater odyssey. This unforgettable trip will never leave your memory.
