IgoUgo travelers never shrink away from exotic locations, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that bad-press magnet Colombia is in the top-30 most viewed destinations this week. After all, behind the headlines is a country of stunning cities and countryside, from the tropics to the Andes. And you all know how to let loose and have a little fun, too, which explains the unwavering popularity of Vegas and its position in the #1 spot.

Here are the most viewed destinations of the week in each of nine world regions; we’ll be keeping an eye on some of the more surprising ones, for sure!

North America: Las Vegas

Central America: Costa Rica

South America: Colombia

Caribbean: Punta Cana

Europe: Rome

Middle East: Dubai

Asia: Tokyo and Bangkok

Africa: Cairo

South Pacific: Sydney

In addition to researching those far-flung destinations, some travelers were planning close-to-home spring breaks. IgoUgo’s most popular journals and reviews included locals’ takes on March Break in Halifax and the California Science Center, and a not-so-local’s opinion of Florida’s Bahia Honda State Park. Also going local? The IgoUgo Travel Blog, where the most-read post spotlighted the Top 10 US State Tourism Sites.
