Escape the Holiday Crowds at These Incredible and Warm Retreats



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.

Do something different this holiday season and be selfish; head to a warm location where big crowds won’t be a concern. 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.[slideshow:102718]

Time spent away from the cold is always a great medicine for winter blues. Sink your toes into soft sand as opposed to puddles 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. 

Whether you are soaking up the sun on a beautiful beach, taking a dip in hot spring or kayaking along calm waters, you are sure to find something that will excite you.
