Cayo Levantado Resort

National Geographic has announced its picks for BEST OF THE WORLD 2024, the brand’s annual guide of the most exciting, meaningful, and one-of-a-kind travel experiences for 2024.

Cayo Levantado Resort was named to the Best Wellness Experiences” list, part of BEST OF THE WORLD’s new WORTH A TRIP category featuring the top establishments recommended by Nat Geo for the year ahead. BEST OF THE WORLD 2024 was created, researched, reported and written in collaboration with National Geographic’s international editorial teams, which serve millions of readers through their magazines and websites around the world. This year’s travel guide celebrates not only must-see destinations but expands the franchise to include a complete and authoritative suite of must-do, must-stay and must-consume recommendations for travelers to engage with these destinations more deeply and meaningfully.

For the first time ever, Nat Geo’s BEST OF THE WORLD recommendations also include a selection of top wellness retreats, hotels, cultural gems and best restaurants that National Geographic’s experts agree are “worth building a trip around,” as well as a list of the top 20 travel adventures for the year ahead. Also new for 2024 is a list of the top expert-approved travel products and a newly introduced set of changemakers who inspire National Geographic’s own global community of travel experts on where and how to travel.

“At National Geographic, we know that travel has the power to move you. That the experiences you have can make you see the world — and yourself — in a new light. Our expanded BEST OF THE WORLD franchise is the ultimate guide to the exceptional experiences that we and our global community of experts are most excited about right now, whether that’s hiking to the El Valle de Antón volcano in Panama or listening to live music in Kyoto or bear-watching in Alaska,” said Nathan Lump, National Geographic’s editor-in-chief. “This year, we wanted to give travelers more ideas than ever before to jumpstart their travel planning for 2024 and beyond, so we grew our lists to include curated hotels, restaurants, wellness retreats like Cayo Levantado Resort and cultural spots that we believe are worth getting on a plane for, and gear that will make your travels smoother. And because we know that people can also be a great source of inspiration, we’re sharing our picks for Travelers of the Year—those individuals who, through their example, make us all want to get out there and experience something new.”

“National Geographic is synonymous with the best in travel, adventure and exploration, and now our editors are sharing the full breadth of their insight across a variety of categories with our fans all over the world,” said Courteney Monroe, president of National Geographic Content. “Whether through the pages of National Geographic magazine, @NatGeo on Instagram, TikTok or YouTube, our BEST OF THE WORLD franchise has the power to ignite the explorer in everyone, from the professional traveler to the family looking for their next adventure.”

“We are truly honored and delighted to be recognized by National Geographic as one of the best wellness destinations in the world,” said Herve Blondel, Cayo Levantado Resort Managing Director. “The luxury resort by Grupo Piñero stands as the perfect setting for those seeking a unique experience of well-being and balance, located in a unique enclave in the Samaná Bay, presenting itself as the ideal place to revitalize the body and soul. This accolade inspires us to continue our dedication to delivering unparalleled wellness experiences, and we look forward to welcoming guests to indulge in the epitome of relaxation and rejuvenation at our resort."
