We are heading to Costa Rica with our teenagers during winter break from school. I can't stand cold weather/snow, so this works for us.

Wherever I travel to, anytime of the year, I do my research to make sure the weather will be near-perfect, that's of supreme importance to me.

A couple times I headed to South America, where the seasons are reversed.

As a small update, it's looking like Tulum due to promixity, price and weather.


With possibilities of throwing in San Miguel de Allende and perhaps Playa del Carmen or Cancun.


For some reason I'm not all that excited but who knows why I'm not.


I am looking at central america and carribean spots but that's the top pick for now. I need some sunshine and good food. And have decided now I'm not up to a really long flight. Otherwise I'd go to Cape Town, Bali, Auckland or somewhere else in Asia I think.

Australia or New Zealand. Or Fiji. Should be very pleasant weather.

Forget SMA, why waste time & $$$ if you go to Tulum, visit Merida the former "Paris of Mexico" & all of the Mayan ruins around the Yucatan. You can rent a car, go by bus or pick up cheap tours there. Chichen Itza is cool. Yucatan seafood & pibil is good.

SMA is another trip.

It's actually the dry season from mid-December to April, which is perfect! Of course, that also means it's peak tourist season.
