Ponta Delgada, the Azores – up 63%With more airlines flying to the Azores, including Ryanair’s new weekly flight from Stansted to Ponta Delgada, this autonomous region of Portugal is opening up as a viable budget travel destination and is therefore experiencing a tourism boom. With excellent hiking, whale watching, surfing and diving, the Azores is likely to feature heavily on adventure travellers’ bucket lists in 2016. Find out what to see and in the Ponta Delgada here.2. Havana, Cuba – up 33%After years in the cold, Cuba is back on the world stage as the USA restored diplomatic relations in July and continues to loosen restrictions on trade.
