Five Peaceful Places To Escape From US Politics

With the circus that is taking over US politics and nearby countries' immigration laws becoming more and more complex, Americans everywhere are looking for peaceful places to escape to. Fortunately, there are five convenient and tranquil countries that would be more than happy to offer you shelter.

These different areas offer different levels of solitude, spanning everything from complete radio and internet shutout to bustling cities that focus on culture, rather than politics. Take your pick and find your personal oasis.

People who want to escape the hustle and bustle of concrete jungles to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature would absolutely love Ecuador. This wildlife sanctuary is home to several exciting locations such as the Galapagos Islands and the Andes Mountains.

Thrill-seekers and nature-lovers are sure to appreciate the abundance of things Ecuador has to offer. Furthermore, the country's quiet towns are home to some of the most welcoming and peace-loving people in the world.

The Huffington Post highly recommends the gorgeous country of Iceland as a great refuge for people looking to escape North American and European politics. This loosely populated paradise is home to one of the world's most beautiful sights: The Northern Lights.

With magical snow-covered lands, a phenomenal night sky, and an overall peaceful status, this country of fire and ice is perfect for travelers seeking some quiet contemplation time. In addition, Iceland has some interesting activities to offer such as snowmobile drives and outdoor survival courses.

Simply hearing the name Costa Rica can automatically send your imagination somewhere tropical and warm. This is a normal reaction, considering the fact that the country's name is not nearly as beautiful as its pristine white sand beaches and dense rain forests.

As stated by NBC, Costa Rica is not just a country for beach days or forest treks. With its perfect mixture of rustic and rural areas, beautiful lakes and peaceful neighborhoods, it's also a great place to get some much needed rest and relaxation.

Some people may be looking to simply sail away and leave everything behind. When it comes to peace and solitude on the high seas, nothing can compare to the open sea adventures of Indonesia.

This Southeast Asian country is home to some of the richest marine life in the entire world. This surfers' paradise is also home to some of the best beaches, luxury yacht escapes, and diving locations across the globe. Not to mention, the country itself is shrouded in culture and spirituality: a great place to find your zen.

Despite all the conflict about Trump's "Build the Wall" campaign, International Living still highly recommends escaping to Mexico. In addition to its close proximity to the United States, Mexico is also considered to be one of the most affordable luxury destinations.

Equipped with beautiful beaches, delicious food, breathtaking sights, and isolated getaway locations, Mexico has quickly become one of US American overseas retirement locations. This humble country holds all the convenience of the modern world while still maintaining its simplistic essence.

These countries are perfect places to get a breath of fresh air and escape from all the election and politic-related news. Of course, if a simple temporary escape isn't going to cut it, there are several premier destinations in the world that have looser immigration laws.
