From beach breaks to snowy ski resorts, Christmas doesn’t always have to be spent at home in Blighty. In fact, it’s becoming increasingly popular to get away from it all over the festive period and enjoy quality time with the family, in a fun-filled destination. So, if you’re looking to avoid burning the turkey or receiving a lump of coal, why not take a look at a brighter alternative?
Mix it up in Mexico
Nestled among the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, Mexico has plenty on offer for families looking for a tropical Christmas holiday. With activities a-plenty, make the most of the water-sports as you try your hand at scuba diving or take up water-skiing. If sightseeing is more your thing, Cancun offers the perfect base to explore the Mayan ruins at nearby Tulum, while local theme parks keep the whole family entertained.
Disney magic in Florida
What could be more magical than spending Christmas at Disney World Florida? See beautiful processions, firework displays unlike no other, meet all of your favourite characters and be swept along with the Disney fairy-tale. The moderate temperature makes this an ideal time to visit and explore, so why not combine your Disney Christmas break with a relaxing few days on the coast at Sandpiper Bay, less than two hours away?
Chalet fun in France
A family of ski bunnies? Then spending Christmas in the Alps could be just the ticket! A picture-perfect destination, whether you want to ski or not won’t matter, as you enjoy both the stunning views and cosiness of feasting in a log cabin. If you are looking to learn to ski, dedicated, professional ski instructors are on hand to take you through the basics, ensuring that this Christmas will be one to remember.
Italian festive feasting
Combine an Italian winter wonderland with delicious cuisine, and you have a winning Christmas break. Let the children enjoy themselves at the many different clubs on offer within a Club Med resort, from crafts to skiing to junior spas, while you enjoy wine-tasting from the various regions around Italy.
Sun yourself at Punta Cana
If escapism is high on the agenda this festive period, then Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is the ultimate tropical destination. Enjoy the relaxed nature of the island, with plenty to do and see whilst you’re there.
