I couldn’t leave my beloved Mexico off the list of places to spend the winter. The problem is, there are so many places that I love, I don’t know where I could recommend the most! I’ve written about some of the places I would like to visit before on my Wanderlust Wishlist. They range from cities to beach resorts and historical sites. There’s so much to see and do, and you can get some great weather in December. In fact, if you don’t like it too hot then it’s the better time to go. For example, the temperature averages about 24 degrees Celsius in Cancun during December. I know lots of people who think that’s a perfect temperature!
Mexico has beaches on the Caribbean Sea, but if you want to get right into it, there are lots of islands to choose from. It’s difficult to pick just one of them, but I suppose you can’t beat the Bahamas. November and December are ideal times to go when you can be a beach bum and relax to your heart’s content. But it would also be the perfect place if I was looking for a party. I hear that there’s also an incredible nightlife at some of the resorts. Plus, you can see some great nature, including turtles, and colourful birds.
All of these other places are pretty far away, and I live in the UK. Much of Europe is a no-go area in winter if you’re looking for sun. Even though there’s some debate about whether Cyprus counts as Europe, it is a closer place for me to catch some rays. The Mediterranean island has quite mild weather in December. So I wouldn’t be sizzling hot if I visited. But there’s still plenty of sun, which is great to cheer you up if you have the winter blues. Paphos looks beautiful, so I wouldn’t mind spending Christmas there, or at least some of the winter holidays. It also only take a few hours to get there, which is much better than the time it would take to get to Australia or Mexico!
I’m already starting to feel a bit cold as the Autumn weather draws in. A winter vacation in the sun is beginning to sound better and better, don’t you agree?
