If you’re tired of Netflix, hot chocolate and having the winter crud, it may be time for you to head out on a sunny vacation. If you can’t actually get time off from work, at least you can dream about the sun and sand. The six destinations below aren’t too far away and will help you warm up this winter.
1. Turks and Caicos
It’s only about a three-hour flight from New York, and average temperatures in winter are between 80 and 84 degrees Fahrenheit. It rarely rains on Turks and Caicos, and it never snows. Photo: Tuscany Resort on Grace Bay
2. Gasparilla Island
The antithesis of Miami, Gasparilla Island feels quaint, vintage and relaxing. The main form of transportation here is a golf cart, so you can stay in the sun even while you’re getting around (in sun protective clothing, of course!) Photo: Gasparilla Inn & Club
3. Puerto Rico
You don’t even have to leave the United States to bathe in crystal-clear lagoons and shower beneath thundering waterfalls. Photo: Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico a Ritz-Carlton Reserve
4. Mexico’s East Coast
You can party in Cancun or relax in a family-friendly resort in the Riviera Maya. Take adventurous day trips to go rafting or visit historic ruins. Photo: Rosewood Mayakobá Resort
5. Barbados Stay at a self-catering apartment or hotel and and feel like you’re living in the house of your dreams. Photo: Barbados Luxury Villa
6. Jamaica The weather in Jamaica is beautiful throughout the year, making the Caribbean island an ideal spot for getting some extra vitamin D. Photo: Sandals Jamaica Private Island
