Winter Sun Destinations

Whether you stay closer to home and bask in the Mediterranean or go far away to a small island in the Caribbean, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to soak up the rays of the sun. These top destinations are the perfect respite from the gloomy weather and will have you feeling happy, healthy and re-energised for the new year.

Tulum, Mexico

This peaceful and quiet part of the Maya Riviera is truly a gem. The area is best known for its archeological site in which well preserved Mayan ruins are perched on a cliff overlooking the Caribbean. The Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve boasts magical mangroves and caves. The turquoise waters are perfect for snorkeling and exploring the diverse marine life and coral reef. If you seek a more energetic nightlife, the popular spring break town of Cancun is nearby.

Lanzarote, Canary Islands

The Canary Islands is a popular destination for many Europeans because of its proximity and beauty. Out of the seven islands, Lanzarote is the farthest east and it has the driest climate. The striking contrast of the black sand beaches, the green vegetation and the bright blue waters is breathtaking. Rent one of the numerous, affordable apartments or condos in Pueto del Carmen and let it serve as a base point. Chances are, you won’t spend a lot of time inside. The volcanic mountains, dark caves and warm waters will keep you busy. For a more relaxed vibe, head to Playa Blanca or Costa Tequise.

Puerto Rico, Caribbean

This island territory of the United States has something for everyone – 20 foot waves for surf enthusiasts, clear waters and white sand beaches for families, a verdant tropical rainforest for the adventurous and a vibrant city. Spend the day relaxing on the beach, exploring the colonial side of Old San Juan and taking rum tours. Travel a little outside the city and you’ll encounter amazing views and endless activities. Explore El Yunque National Rainforest or board a ferry to the nearby island of Vieques, where you can go on nighttime kayaking trips in to the world’s brightest bioluminescent bay.

Miami, US

While the majority of the United States is cold and wet, like much of Europe, Miami is heating things up. The electrifying city in the southeastern tip of Florida is known for its sexy beaches, raving nightlife and diverse culture. South Beach, in particular is the place to see and be seen. You can spend your time relaxing on the beaches, taking a food tours, visiting museums and art galleries, and of course, shopping.

You can easily do all of these locations on the cheap. However, if you thought to yourself, maybe I should sell my iPod,” to make some extra money, it might be a wise idea, especially if you plan to do some shopping.
