The winter has really arrived for full – and I’m (J) officially freezing to death. The cold weather and short sunny days really does something with you. AND then it’s up to you how you’ll solve that problem; it can be with a weekend spa getaway, or if you – like me – prefer white sand over white snow, now is the time to book a real winter getaway! Not sure where to look? Below I’ve gathered 6 of my favorite places at the moment (and yes, you’re going to love them just as much as I do!).
BELIZE, NORTH AMERICA
Belize is a nation on the eastern coast of Central America. Here you can swim in the Caribbean Sea, explore the accent Mayan ruins or snorkel in the great blue hole. Or just chill by the ocean with a tropical drink in your hand?
COSTA RICA, CENTRAL AMERICA
Costa Rica in Central America. You can of course just lay on the beach day in and day out (which I would definitely do half of the time!) or you can explore a numbers of different things like Vulcans, jungles and biodiversity.You can even have a city day or two! A must-visit is San Jose – full of culture.
KAUAI, HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
Kauai is an island in the central pacific and is a part of the Hawaiian Islands (actually the oldest one). The island is a perfect place to go if you like beaches, jungles and a fantastic wildlife. This is also the perfect place for hiking.
Phuket in Thailand; THE the place to go if you like warm winters. You have numbers of different beach resorts to choose between and beaches as long as the eyes can see. Also if you like a little partying this is definitely the place to be. And did I mention the food? No? It’s AMAZING.
FUERTEVENTURA, CANARY ISLANDS
Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands. If you like the sun, but think that Thailand can be a little to warm (and far away, if you live in Europe), well here is the place. You have beaches all over with a little bit of fresh wind at all time. Which also makes this a perfect place for water sports like surfing, windsurfing and waterskiing.
JAMAICA, CARIBBEAN SEA
Jamaica is the third biggest island in the Caribbean. The winter is the perfect time to go because of the hurricane season in June-November. Most of the tourist go to Montego beach and I can understand why; it’s simply beautiful! Chill by the beach with some reggae music or snorkel in the blue ocean with the most colorful fishes you can imagine. What more to a persen actually need when running away from the cold?
