Isla Suasi, Lake Titicaca, Peru
How to get there: five-hour speedboat ride
Peru has no shortage of remote mountain hideaways (that’s part of the appeal of the Machu Picchu treks), but one of the country’s best escapes is actually on the edge of Lake Titicaca. It takes four-plus hours by speedboat from the city of Puno to reach the 106-acre Isla Suasi, where there are no modern conveniences like electricity and TV. What’s there? Nature. There are trails to hike, gardens to explore, wild vicuñas (related to llamas) to watch, and waterholes and beaches to swim. Considering Lake Titicaca covers more than 3,000 square miles, this seems like an even better place to lose yourself than on the Inca Trail.
