Top Five Places To Go For Winter Sun

As much as wrapping up in 3 jumpers, 2 coats, a scarf, hat and gloves is a nostalgic experience, stepping outside into the freezing 0-degree weather and not being able to feel your fingers, isn’t very enjoyable.

For many of us, we stay inside and just put up with the weather until early spring, but it doesn’t have to always be that way! Have you ever considered going abroad to experience some winter sun?

If not, here’s a collection of Not Just Travel’s top 5 places to visit:

Costa Rica

Imagine, Christmas day – stepping out onto the beach and staring out into the sea. Costa Rica is known for its striking turquoise waters, where both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea meet.


During the winter, Dubai has become increasingly popular, due to its warm sands, bars and eateries. If you enjoy a spot of retail therapy, try Dubai, as it
offers many malls which are perfect for staying out of the midday heat!


Named the sunshine state, it’s clear to see why visiting during the colder months in the UK is a great idea. Love the beach? Florida is perfect for you! Did you know it boasts over 1,300 miles of coastline?

Rio de Janeiro

If you’re planning on visiting during the winter months, you might catch its Mardi Gras extravaganza which runs through the end of February. Here, temperatures are in the mid-20s and hotels tend to sell out quickly, so book quickly!


Barbados is the perfect location for anyone who loves the Caribbean islands. Enjoy a little luxury? Head towards the resorts on the west coast. Like something with more heritage? Staying close-by to the capital Bridgetown will ensure you’ll see lots and eat amazing food.
