A new Airbnb report offers plenty of inspiration for those still pondering their summer vacations. The hospitality marketplace gathered trends based on destinations that have experienced the most percentage growth in bookings compared to last summer.

The trend report proves that Puerto Rico is bouncing back with gusto after Hurricane Maria, with three of its island getaways (Dorado, Vieques, and Rio Grande) landing in the top-ten of global trending destinations. China earned two spots with central city Changsha, renowned for its rare collection of excavated Western Han dynasty tombs, along with nearby Wuhan, a top pick for history and nature buffs. Conveniently located Matsudo, Japan, made the list as a calmer alternative to bustling Tokyo and Yeosu, South Korea, pops up as an unexpected beach destination. Riverfront Valenciennes in Northern France tops the list and Bragg Creek, Canada, comes in last, proving North America hasn’t lost all appeal to travelers.

Airbnb breaks this data down even further by providing top destinations among families, couples, and solo travelers. The report shows that families are celebrating schools end with adventurous excursions to the small cities nestled next to America’s National Parks, like Santa Clara, Utah, and Williams, Arizona. Couples are setting their sights on one-of-a-kind experiences like August’s Solar Eclipse, best viewed in Salta, Argentina. Solo trekkers are taking it easy at the beach, with Baja California and Myrtle Beach emerging as easy getaways.
