Ranking Criteria

Our lists are backed by data, using this systemized approach.

Here’s how we determine our rankings.

1. Followers Poll

We survey our Instagram network of over 555,000 followers via (@tropicals @tropicsdaily @tropikaia)

2. Hashtag Usage

After we poll our followers, we determine the popularity by analyzing Instagram’s hashtag data.

3. Google Trends

We also utilize Google Trends to determine the search popularity of each destination.

4. Accessibility

Finally, we check to see how accessible each location is. Do you need to take a long car/boat ride from the airport?
