Let us put "JOY" in your travel!
Let’s face it. Sometimes, we all get tired of the dreary winter weather and want to go somewhere tropical and warm. A beach-type setting comes to mind for us. Here are some tropical places that are perfect to visit in the cold winter months.
Within the U.S., if you’re in the midwest or east coast and don’t want to travel far, pack your bags and head to Florida which offers beaches, amusement parks, and outdoor activities. If you’re on the west coast, consider Scottsdale, Arizona or San Diego, California.
Not too far from the U.S. is Costa Rica, which has a dry season that begins in December, leaving beautiful weather for any outdoor adventures you’d like to try. Still close to the western part of the U.S. is Hawaii which offers different experiences on each of its’ islands. To learn more about what each island offers, check out our previous blog post about Hawaii. Or, you could head to Mexico to places like Playa Del Carmen or Cancun to enjoy a beach vacation. Still somewhat close to the U.S. is Puerto Rico which offers adventurous activities or the opportunity to hop a plane to a Caribbean getaway like Anguilla or the British Virgin Islands.
A bit further away but beautiful is Bora Bora which provides clear, turquoise water and exquisite overwater bungalows. Or, just south of Mexico is Belize which is perfect for a beach vacation. For a more touristy and informational trip, venture to Barcelona, Spain to take in the architecture and cultural sites.
Sometimes the cold and grey weather becomes too much and we want to get away to someplace tropical. Have you taken any warm weather trips in the winter months? Which places have you traveled to and would recommend? Share in the comments section below.
