The Yucatan features some very deep sinkholes – called cenotes – which are essentially great swimming spots for the more adventurous traveler.

Kuang Si Waterfalls – Laos

You’ll first need to hop on a tuk-tuk in Luang Prabang and then make a beeline for the beautiful waterfalls at Kuang Si, which feature a numebr of very inviting pools that are crying out to be swum in. the wonderful, blue waters offer a great and cooling effect during the hot Laos summers. In case you want to avoid the crowds and the searing midday heat, try getting there later in the afternoon.

Wattego’s Beach – Australia

Known as a surfing paradise, Byron Bay might not seem to be a great spot for a quick dip, but it is an ideal place to cool off during the height of the scorching Australian summer. The water will be much calmer here than it would be at the nearby Tallow beach, but stay close to the shore just to be safe.

Boiling River – Yellowstone National Park, USA

Boiling River is exactly that, well not exactly boiling, but it’s a warm body of water stemming from a hot spring in the middle of otherwise icy water.

Boulders – South Africa

Going to Boulders will afford you the option of swimming with penguins without having to wear an ultra-thick wetsuit and dodge icebergs.
