Cold winter holidays aren’t for everyone. While some find warmth in the time they spend with loved ones, others prefer to spend their holidays away from the snow. Thankfully, seasons and weather differ in various parts of the world – when it’s snowy and cold on your side, it’s warm and sunny on the other side of the globe. Here are some destinations worth considering if you want a warm holiday period. 

Mexico is filled with diverse territories, activities, sights, and sounds. But do you know what else is diverse in this location? The climate. There are several warm places you can stay in Mexico if you want to run away from the cold winter. But the farther north you travel, the warmer it gets (as it probably is with other countries). That said, you probably don’t want to end up somewhere too hot for the holidays, so look for a location in between – not too hot and not too cold. One of the best places in Mexico that offers a perfect balance between the extreme weather is Cancun. Due to its proximity to the Caribbean Sea, the climate is almost heavenly during winter months. The sun is not too bright to scorch you, and yet more than enough to shower you with golden rays. The beaches along this area are also worth every penny, and you’ll enjoy a truly relaxing time.

Malaysia is also worth visiting during the holidays. The best time is commonly between December and April when the weather is warm and humid despite the spurts of rain here and there. Because most tourists prefer not to visit during this time of the year, you can expect to have an absolutely wonderful time without the stress of dealing with tourist crowds and overpriced services. Plus, the rains only occur in short spells, so that wouldn’t get in the way of your outdoor holiday activities. Just make sure you carry an umbrella so you don’t get caught in a surprise rainfall when enjoying your time outside. Also, you can expect to receive excellent services from friendly Malaysian people and businesses, which is particularly helpful for a solo traveler. Malaysian hospitality is also top-notch, from food to laundry service. For example, you can easily find a dobi layan diri in your location if you need laundry services. 

Morocco is another excellent location, offering a perfect blend of sunshine, warmth, culture, and fun for travelers looking for a way out of the winter weather. You may already know about the Sahara desert, but there’s greater diversity to Morocco’s landscape apart from the massive stretch of sand. For example, you’ll find the majestic Atlas mountains and the picturesque coastlines quite enchanting. Moroccan cities are also rich in history, and you’re sure to have a good time in almost any part of the country. Morocco is also known for its warm hospitality and friendly people. The food is delicious, the people are welcoming, and there are  loads of outdoor holiday activities you can enjoy while you’re there.
