CNN) — Get your credit card out and your favorite booking platforms at the ready: US magazine and news website TIME has just released its list of the world’s 50 greatest places of 2022.
The list was compiled by its international network of correspondents and contributors, and, says TIME in a statement, “with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.”
The 50 destinations to make the cut include both classic big-hitters and less-explored spots, but what unites them is that they are “thriving, growing and changing,” says TIME, “charting a path to economic recovery” and “investing in sustainability.”
In the United States, TIME is recommending the hip West Coast centers of Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco, the Florida coastal cool of Miami, and Michigan’s “Comeback City” Detroit. The winter skiing destination Park City, Utah, also gets a nod.
In Canada, Ontario capital Toronto and the little surfing town of Tofino, British Columbia, are the picks, and further north again, Illuissat, on Greenland’s mainland, opens onto Disko Bay, the “Grand Canyon of the Arctic Circle.”
The ever-popular beach destinations of Jamaica and Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit also make the 2022 list.
The city of Salta, in Argentina’s mountainous northwest, and the village of El Chaltén, in the country’s Los Glaciares National Park, caught TIME’s eye this year.
Chile’s Rapa Nui — better known as Easter Island — and Ecuador’s Galápagos Islands are two volcanic wonders to have made the list.
The buzzing metropolises of Bogotá, Colombia, and São Paulo, Brazil, are two more of TIME’s urban recommendations.
