Whether you prefer a beach getaway, or a skiing adventure we have you covered. Here are our top 5 coolest vacation spots we want to go for the month of December.
1. Copenhagen, Denmark
December in Copenhagen is a winter wonderland. Winter is low tourist season all over Europe, making it the perfect time to go explore without the crowds. The Danish word “hygge” doesn’t really translate in English, but it could be described as “cozy” which is what wintertime is all about! Copenhagen oozes “hygge” so get in the holiday spirit by shopping Tivoli Gardens’ Christmas Market and eating pastries (especially the danishes)!
2. Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica
Escaping the cold weather never looked so good. Costa Rica is known for it’s stellar surfing, and gorgeous rain forests. YES, PLEASE. By mid-December summer is feeling so far away, so a relaxing week on the beach seems pretty ideal for a holiday.
3. Aspen, Colorado
Aspen IS winter. Aspen makes the perfect location for a skiing weekend getaway. Every December, downtown Aspen has a holiday market with different vendors and activities that you cannot miss. Bring along your apres-ski hot toddy or mulled cider to keep your hands warm!
4. Sugar Beach, St. Lucia
Sugar Beach literally looks like a beach made of sugar. Sugar without all the calories? We’re in. Just thinking about lying on the beach with a strawberry daiquiri is enough to make us hop on a plane right. now.
5. Phuket, Thailand
With temperatures averaging at 85 degrees in December, Phuket is calling our name. For the more adventurous set, a trip to Thailand calls for boat excursions around the cliffs, riding an elephant, a rocking nightlight scene, and gorgeous beaches all in one. Not to mention, the cuisine is known to be so authentic and delicious you may never want to order in from the Thai restaurant around the corner ever again.
