The long and gloomy days of winter can really take a toll on the mind and body. For an extra dose of Vitamin D and a brief respite of warmth, head to these hot destinations to experience some of the best of winter’s sunshine.

Mexico

Just a short plane ride stands between you and endless consecutive days of sun and tequila. Instead of staying at some of the coast’s biggest resorts, opt for a smaller town for a more authentic experience and possibly a private beach.

Colombia

Slightly further south but worlds away is Colombia, where tropical rainforests don’t stand in the way of hours upon hours of sunshine. 

South Africa

When it’s winter where you are, why not fly to summer in a matter of hours? Granted, South Africa is more than just a few hours away, but the brilliant coastline and sparkling sands can warm the body and soul.

Vietnam

Before the rainy season hits full swing in April, catch your last chance for dry-season delight in Southeast Asia. Boat rides and cycling along the coast are ideal outdoor activities in this warm and humid locale.

Southern California

If you can’t afford an international getaway, there’s nothing wrong with jetting off to Los Angeles or San Diego for a long weekend of shorts-wearing weather. Though it may be too cold for swimming in the Pacific, the sight and smell of the ocean will invigorate the soul with summer vibes.

Snowshoeing Mont-Tremblant

If you are traveling to a world-class ski resort, I am willing to bet snowshoeing is not the first activity you have in mind. When faced with the prospect of carving up a mountain on skis or trudging through the snow, most will choose skis.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
