It seems like every girl in the country is gearing up to watch Julia Roberts find herself while traveling in Italy, India and Indonesia in Eat Pray Love. While the movie’s trailer shows some incredible food and drop-dead gorgeous locations, we couldn’t help but think that when it comes to both (as well as thousand-year-old spiritual traditions) those places have nothing on Latin America.

I recently took my partner with me to vacation in my home country, Colombia. We'd never seen the city of Santa Marta, located in the northern part of the country (a three hour drive from Cartagena), but once we arrived we knew it was magical. There's a reason why Colombians go there to vacation—it boasts an intoxicating mix of the Caribbean sea, the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains and pure serenity.

Lonely Planet has named El Salvador as one of the top ten destinations of 2010. Noting that the Central American country often gets overlooked by travelers in favor of Costa Rica and Guatemala, the publication points out that most visitors to El Salvador will have the beaches to themselves.

When people picture Los Cabos, they tend to think about spring break and drunken debauchery. But as I discovered on a recent trip down, there is much more going on than a lively bar scene where the Sea of Cortés meets the Pacific Ocean. Although Cabo San Lucas is the more well-known of the two Cabos, I found San Jose del Cabo to be more quaint and inviting. The whole town has a homey, communal feel to it and around every corner there is a cool art gallery or delicious restaurant to discover.
