Why not jet off for the holiday of a lifetime instead! Check out our top six destinations in the Americas for winter sun…

Island of Hawaii, Hawaii

If you’re looking for paradise – look this way! Hawaii’s diverse ecosystem comes with plenty of sunny days all year round. There’s plenty to do in Hawaii, including taking a hike across active volcanoes, spotting green turtles and snorkelling. Forget about the winter blues - the only blues you’ll find here are the coastlines…

Key West, Florida

Key West Florida

With average high temperatures of 22 degrees, Key West is the perfect place to indulge in some watersports. You on a jet ski as your new profile pics? Prepare to be the envy of all your mates back home this winter! Festive food in Key West is all about the seafood – not a sprout in sight!

El Cuco, El Salvador

Stretch out on the dark sand beaches of El Cuco to top up your winter tan, with temperatures reaching up to the mid-thirties, even in the winter months. Kayak through the mangroves, unleash your inner surfer or just chill out in a hammock.

San Diego, California

San Diego

The beachside city of San Diego simply oozes California cool. Slightly chillier than the highs of the aforementioned South America, however you’re still likely to enjoy comfortable weather. Walk your way around Balboa Park, hit Mission Beach or learn to paddleboard for the first time. Winter sun AND winter fun!

Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Kick back and relax in this Mexican coastal resort town. It’s down the road from Cancun, but Playa offers a much richer experience in our opinion. Enjoy relaxing with a refreshing cocktail on a beachside bar, snorkelling amongst coral reefs and picking up a spot of shopping along the main strip.

Death Valley, California

Another addition to the California winter sun line-up! Death Valley is known as one of the hottest, driest and lowest places on earth, with temperatures soaring to the mid-forties in the summer months. If you want to check out this fascinating landscape in slightly cooler conditions, winter is the perfect time to soak up the sunshine while still being comfortable.
