Separated from continental Africa by 250 miles of water, Madagascar is the greatest adventure you haven’t had yet. The island nation is home to a wide array of creatures, including giant moths and bug-eyed lemurs, and sights like the surreal Avenue of the Baobabs, where the centuries-old trees reach heights of nearly 100 feet. While it’s not very easy to reach, this 15th-century fortress town in the Rif Mountains, about two hours south of Tangier, remains a popular draw for tourists. Buildings in its ancient medina are painted a dreamy sky blue—even some of the steps of the winding old town are as blue as the walls around them.
