On the other side of the world, Seminyak, the luxurious beach destination located in Bali, rounds out this year’s list at the number 10 spot.

“We weren’t surprised to see Rio at the top of this year’s list, given the popularity of the 2014 World Cup,” said Eric Horndahl, Vice President of Marketing at FlipKey. “Our tenth spot on the list can be attributed to the growing popularity of Southeast Asia and a beautiful destination like Seminyak offers a variety of properties for all travelers’ needs.”

As in 2013, Florida destinations dominate the list, with Miami Beach taking the number two spot, followed by the Orlando/Kissimmee area, Naples, and Key West. Overall, this year’s list demonstrates that warm-weather beach destinations are where travelers are going for next year’s vacation.
