There is no doubt that Canadian winters can be brutal, and while there are many things to love about the great white north, it is also the perfect time to travel south and soak up some sun. With pandemic restrictions finally lifting, the dream of dinner on the beach, palm trees, and swimming with sea turtles can become a reality. If you’re itching to pack your bags and head for warmer waters, look no further than these enchanting destinations below.
A short, 3-hour flight away from Toronto, Miami is one of the most popular winter travel destinations for Canadians. Temperatures in March are a balmy 25 degrees on average, the perfect weather for relaxing on the picturesque South Beach. Discover vibrant culture in Little Havana, an outdoor, urban museum in the Wynwood art district, or dance your nights away at one of the city’s countless clubs and restaurants.
There’s something for everybody in Hawaii, whether you’re travelling with a partner, friends, or family. Surrounded by beaches and rich blue waters, the relaxed traveller can spend their days lounging by the water, golfing, boating, or just enjoying the unparalleled beauty of Hawaiian sunsets. More adventurous travellers can take full advantage of Hawaii’s beautiful landscapes: explore one of the many magical forests, snorkel with sea turtles and dolphins, or take advantage of some of the best surfing conditions in the world and take a surf lesson.
Described by many as the most beautiful island in the Caribbeans, St. Lucia offers a welcoming, luxurious escape that captivates every traveller who visits the island. No winter destination would be complete without dazzling beaches, and St. Lucia is no exception. For a truly unique experience, make your way to Grande Anse to see baby turtles hatching and finding their way to the waters, or drive into the Soufriere volcano for breathtaking views. St. Lucia is also home to a plethora of festivals throughout the year, one of biggest being the St. Lucia carnival in June, featuring parades, soca dancing and delicious cuisine.
Costa Rica: With world class resorts, stunning geography, and over 800 miles of shoreline, animal and nature lovers won’t be disappointed in Costa Rica. If you’re looking for something more glamorous, San Jose – Costa Rica’s capital – has an abundance of shopping and delicious food options. However, if you’re an adventure seeker, Costa Rica’s gorgeous national parks are a dream, offering tourists the opportunity to go river rafting, cave tubing, scuba diving and zip lining. Costa Rica is also home to over 500,000 species of animals, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for bright-coloured butterflies, monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and hummingbirds.
