Escape the Winter at These Warm and Incredible Retreats
The winter divides people in two basic categories when it comes to vacations – those who love the snow and those who want to get away from it. You don’t have to wait for summer to enjoy the beach, go scuba diving, or embark on crazy adventures that don’t involve ice.[slideshow:92175]
If you have some vacation days saved up, now is the time to think about escaping the winter and heading to a warm, tropical location. Choose a destination with a temperate climate and you can spend your days working off any extra “Christmas cheer” weight by hiking, swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling.
Time spent away from the cold is always a great medicine for winter blues. Sink your toes into soft sand as opposed to fresh snow and head to a tropical paradise for a few days to recharge your batteries, clear your mind, and get mentally fit to handle the season’s wrath.
Visit a coastal fishing village that will delight you with history, adventure and of course, warmth; relax on breathtakingly beautiful beaches that give way to some of the best waves you’ll find anywhere; make time for a true paradise on Earth if you like perfect weather and water sports.
Consider a fitness retreat for a change. You get to relax and get in shape at the same time. Training sessions are not held in a closed gym with dozens of other people; rather, they involve hiking in nature, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, and doing yoga on the beach.
