How to Vacation Like Indiana Jones

by Douglas Wright

Finding a truly legendary destination that hasn't been spoiled by tourist kiosks and souvenir hawkers can feel like a search for the Lost Ark of the Covenant. But have no fear, intrepid explorers—it's still possible to hack your own jungle path with a backpack full of maps to discover a lost civilization (and if you're lucky, a hoard of gold). We've scoured the globe for mysterious places that instill a sense of otherworldly wonder, where you can explore at will without feeling like you're trapped in a theme park. From Mayan ruins deep in the jungles of Guatemala to Japan's own underwater Atlantis, hold onto your hats, Indiana Jones wannabes, because the journey has just begun.
