There are two types of people out there. There are those who enjoy the months that bring feet of snow, freezing cold temperatures and slippery sidewalks, and then there are others who prefer the warmer side of things. They are all about bright sunlight, warm beaches, and swimsuit weather.
Which type are you?
If you are like many people out there, you are partial to the warmer side of things. Who can blame you? People in warmer climates just have more fun. They get to walk outside without fear of freezing to death and having to walk through thick, crushing snow. Unfortunately, some of us have no choice but to live in colder climates. That doesn’t mean that you can’t take a warm vacation somewhere else and if you travel in January 2017 then you may get the best deal.
We have compiled some of the best warm weather destinations for your new year travel, and we just know that you will enjoy them.
Everyone has heard of the splendor of the Caribbean, but if you have never been then you honestly don’t know what you are missing. As one of the most popular warm weather destinations, this beach filled paradise is all about relaxation and taking in that soothing sun. Stay near the beach and wake up every morning to that warm breeze. If you want to save a few bucks in the process, stay somewhere along the Mexican coast where the hotels are cheaper.
With an average January temperature of right around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the climate in Mexico City is perfect for those who want to escape the snow and cold without having to sweat their shorts off. Truly a different type of vacation, this area is full of rich history and gorgeous architecture.
It is not an over-exaggeration to state that Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful and desirable places to travel to in January 2017. The area is home to the whitest beaches, the chance to swim in both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Oceans and a fun night club scene.
As an extra tip, remember to schedule your trip for the second week in January or after. The first week is the busiest of the month, and by going a few days later, you can save a bunch in hotel and attraction costs.
There’s one thing that many January vacationers know for sure, and that is the fact that Rio de Janeiro is hot! Hot! Hot! This is the place to go if you enjoy beautiful people and beautiful temperatures. The weather rarely dips below 70 degrees and the water is the perfect swimming temperature.
