You’re looking out at a frosted window or a flurry. Even going outside is a feat, making you dream about warm waters and palm trees. 

Because you could be in the Caribbean right now. 

And there are few times of year when the Caribbean is more alluring than the end of fall and the beginning of winter, when the region’s warm romance and idyllic beauty are a strong siren song. 

So what are you waiting for? Start planning a getaway for December — here are five of our favorite ideas for your next trip.

Puerto Rico Locals like to say that the island has the longest Christmas season on earth, lasting from November to January — but it’s December when the destination is at its most vibrant. Puerto Rico’s tourism sector has been on a rather impressive comeback push since the storms of 2017, and that means a greater offering than ever, whether you’re looking for a luxe getaway at the St Regis Bahia Beach or Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, or a hip urban getaway at the island’s most exciting new hotel, the OLV Fifty Five in Condado.
