For most Americans and Canadians, if snow, ice, slush, and freezing temperatures haven’t already arrived, they are just around the corner and most likely, for quite a while!
Winter weather will undoubtedly have you itching for a getaway, and there’s no better time to start planning your vacation than now! Cut your winter short and opt for a complete change of scenery this holiday season. After a warm, relaxing vacation, you can return home with your batteries recharged, ready to face winter again.
Here’s why a trip to the Riviera Maya this holiday season is a good idea.
Escape the cold weather.
You probably remember last winter as if it was yesterday: mostly gloomy skies, temperatures below 14° Fahrenheit (-10° Celsius), and even the coldest sunny days. And let’s not forget frostbite on your hands and feet!
You could tough it out this winter and endure three to six months of freezing temperatures or… You could avoid the winter blues and head south to the Riviera Maya, Mexico, one of the most spectacular tourist places in the world, where the daytime temperature never goes below 70° Fahrenheit (21° Celsius).
Picture yourself surrounded by swaying palm trees and beautiful scenery, lush green jungles, sunshine, and the warm, tranquil Caribbean Sea. The only thing frozen will be your margarita!
Break away from your routine.
The winter holiday season is one of the best seasons of the year. It’s a great time to reunite with family and friends. It’s also the time when most people choose to stay indoors, not because they want to, but because it’s too cold to do anything outside.
Take a vacation where you don’t have to worry about weather conditions, and where you can enjoy outdoor activities anytime of the day or night. The Riviera Maya is the kind of vacation spot where you can relax on white sand beaches or be active by snorkeling, diving, kayaking, and more.
Nightlife options range from a peaceful walk on a secluded beach to a night of dancing, drinking and excess at a fashionable nightclub in nearby Playa del Carmen.
Get the best hotel deals and vacation packages.
A great way to take advantage of the best winter vacation packages is if you book your trip in advance. Thousands of people want to travel in the colder season, so making your travel plans in advance can result in confirming a reservation during your preferred time frame.
January through May is the perfect time of year to visit the Mexico Caribbean, since rain is less common and temperatures are very comfortable during these months.
You don’t need an excuse to travel during the winter. You’ve worked hard long enough, and you deserve it!
