A telltale sign of spring is when cherry blossoms start popping up on the Forbes Travel Guide Instagram feed. Whether the flowers bloom in Kyoto or Paris, our followers can’t get enough of them.
But a lingering winter also had our followers seeking out escapes in warmer climes. Places like Thailand and Greece racked up the likes last month, but topping the list was Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa, an intimate boutique hotel, won them over with thatched roofs, whitewashed buildings, swaying palms and pristine beachfront.
Whether you decide to check into Belmond Maroma or explore other delightful destinations this spring, snap a photo and tag it on Instagram with #ForbesTravelGuide and you just might be featured on @ForbesTravelGuide.
