5 Tropical Vacations to Get Away from the Cold

Winter is great and all, but sometimes it’s nice to get away from the cold weather and relax in the sun. Check out these amazing tropical vacations that are perfect to get away from the cold weather!

1. Curacao: 

This Dutch Caribbean isle is absolutely breathtaking. With more than 30 beaches, there is plenty to do. Relax, snorkel, take a boat ride, or go sight seeing. The views are beautiful, and you’ll be sure to enjoy yourself. Most resorts and hotels have a great nightlife as well, so you’ll never be left with nothing to do! Be sure to put on sun tan lotion–the sun is extremely strong, even in January!

2. Tahiti: 

This is the perfect place if you’re trying to escape the cold, frigid weather. With its amazing blue waters, striking cliffs, and gorgeous green forests, Tahiti truly is paradise.

3. Punta Cana: 

This beautiful paradise in the Dominican Republic is a great winter getaway. Whether you want to chill out on the beach or by the pool, or go boating, water skiing, scuba diving, or snorkeling, there is something to do for everyone. If you’re bringing your kids, you should rent a banana boat for some beach fun!

4. Rio de Janeiro: 

Brazil in January usually has a high of 90 degrees and a low of around 72 degrees, making it the perfect place to get a mid-winter tan! This is a very busy time of the year for Rio, behind only Carnival the following month for crowds and hotel rates, but it’s still relatively cheap and it’s an amazing place to visit at any price.

5. Costa Rica: 

Explore the country’s extensive national parks, learn about pre-Columbian history, or just simply relax on the shores of some of the best beaches in the world! You can enjoy the warm water and brilliant sunshine until it’s time to get back to the cold, winter weather in the U.S.
