7 Destinations for a Perfect Winter Getaway

We know that winter starts off easy at first: gently snowflakes, warm sweaters, and a sense of romanticism with it all. This quickly changes when the cold weather prevents your car from starting, and the snow becomes a peculiar mix of salt, dirt and ice. Use these vacation destinations to defeat your seasonal doldrums and cure the wintertime blues.

1. Costa Rica

To many, Costa Rica’s charm lies in its lush rainforests, unspoiled beaches, and abundance of wildlife. From zip lines and aquatic lagoons to jungles with toucans, monkeys, and jaguars; Costa Rica is packed with outdoor endless outdoor activities. Residents and travelers alike enjoy the “Pura Vida” (or “pure life”) lifestyle.

2. Bora Bora

Want a luxury, virtually tourist-free vacation destination? Then Bora Bora is your place. This breathtaking paradise is expensive and doesn’t guarantee tropical weather (read: mosquitoes and rain). But when it’s great its grand. Relax on an open water bungalow and let your hair down (or have your butler do it for you).

3. Kauai

Kauai is your choice if you prefer rural over resplendent. This gorgeous Hawaiian Isle is consistently ranked as the most romantic getaway in the US.
