It’s that time of year again, when bad weather and uncomfortable family gatherings become the norm. Some people wait all year for the holidays; they love giving gifts, caroling, and having snowball fights. But others, who are maybe a little Grinchy, would rather avoid the snow, awkward family conversations, and overabundance of false cheerfulness entirely.
If you are one of those “humbug” people, consider taking a vacation. Think about it: you could skip an entire week of shoveling snow off the driveway, miss out on the inappropriate jokes from your Great Aunt Millie, and avoid the chaos surrounding the malls!
On top of all that, you can appreciate not just eluding the cold, but actually basking in the warmth of a tropical beach that requires short sleeves, suntan lotion, and a fruity drink to provide relief. That sounds a million times better than listening to “12 Days of Christmas” while you’re stuck in a traffic jam, because someone forgot to put snow chains on his tires.
Here are a few of the locations you should consider if you want to take winter vacations:
Mexico is actually nicer during the winter than during the summer, because the weather is cooler and the air is less humid. Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Riviera Maya all have their charms and excellent all inclusive vacation packages. Try one of these warm Mexico vacations if you like sun and surf!
Punta Cana Resorts
Located on the island of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is a fantastic location for Caribbean vacations. Check out our Travel Blog, where we have been recently posting Punta Cana resort Reviews, like this one on Paradisus Palma Real Resort.
Hawaii is lovely all year long, but it is slightly cooler at night during the winter. That said, Hawaii vacations tend to be cheaper during the winter, so you can find better last minute travel deals on flights and hotels. The other advantage of Hawaii vacations is that you get the comfort of having service that is spoken in English, making it very easy to communicate.
